According to this link it's the Reich Ministry of the Interior.

But I've seen photographs and it doesn't look so. For your enjoyment and excellent resource of information on the Berlin "government district" from 1933 to 1945:

The building could well have been a hotel in the early days of the Nazi regime (as the Prinz Albrecht Palais and the Hotel Prinz Albrecht were) - the Gestapo only took ownership of the complex in May 1933.
