Back in 1881, the construction of the house was ordered by Nikolai von Ramedlov. Architect Paul Max Bertschy was the author of the construction design of the house. The building was put into service for the first time in 1882 as a hotel and a shopping centre. In the beginning, Hotel de Rome consisted of two separate buildings divided by a street, which connected Zivju Street and Stendera Street.

In 1885, Hotel de Rome was bought at the auction by a friend of Bertschy – a construction entrepreneur Wilhelm Johan Riege, who was also an owner of Priekule brick kiln and a member of the construction commission, also working in the Stock Committee, at the Liepāja Small Gild and City Council.

After the death of Riege in 1894, Hotel de Rome was being managed by a manager for some time, but later the Riege family sold it to the entrepreneurs of Drāts family. The Drāts united both bulks, built an additional staircase and settled a large wine vault. Later the Drāts also installed a water main in the hotel.

During the First World War, Hotel de Rome was occupied by the military officials of the German Kaiser army. In 1920, the Drāts reregistered the hotel in their grandchild name and resumed the hotel business. In 1939, the Drāts repatriated to Germany, but did not fully arrange the documents – they were considered the building owners up until 1991 when the denationalized property was obtained back and entrusted for managing to Juris Jaunzems.
