Last week i visited the arcona Hotel with my girlfriend. We had an ebay voucher and booked two nights there. The service was great and very friendly. The breakfast was extraordinary. A lot of things, great choice and nice view into the garden. I can highly recommend this hotel for a short stay. Two things were not so great. First,... More

We stayed there over the weekend and have to say we have seen better places. They got little gimmicks that would qualify for a 4 star hotel but when basics like cleanliness and noise protection are missing... Cleanliness: The floor was dusty and not vacuumed; a lot of dust was laying around the bed, in corners and under furniture; he... More

I hate it when the shower automatically adjusts itself to colder or hotter water.... I always find myself jumping to the left or right.... This built-in automatic adjustment of temperature was available free of chage in our 2 deluxe rooms.... The TV (size of a laptop computer) is ridiculous ! Rest of the room was fine... Good and friendly service,... More

Needed some where to stay prior to flying from Berlin, whilst this hotel is approx 45km from the airport its by far the best family hotel I have stayed at in the region. Fantastic prices, facilities and superb river walks.

The Art otel Potsdam is situated outside the citycentre of Potsdam. The Charlottenhof trainstation is not far but finding the hotel is not easy because you can't see the hotel on the street, the hotel is behind a big yellow building. The hotel looks modern and nice altough not everyone will love the style. Rooms have nice vieuws on the... More

The hotel consists of 2 parts - old and new. We got a room in the old one and were SHOCKED - it naturally reminded me a medieval prison cell - small, tiny room with very-very(!) small window and thick walls. I called the front desk and refused to stay there unless they give me another room. After 10 minutes... More

We showed up in Potsdam without a room reservation for 1 night, and the local tourist agency booked us here for EUR 96. This was a perfectly acceptable hotel, with a very modern feel. But as others have commented, it doesn't quite live up to its pretensions. The negatives are mostly aesthetic, rather than practical. This room was one of... More

We booked this hotel via the internet, with proximity in mind for Sans Soucci. The location is about the best one can get for the price, but is not terribly user friendly. Probably, we were unlucky, in that major building was occurring in an adjacent site, which meant that we had great difficulty in accessing the carpark. The staff, upon... More
