The old orphanage is a long narrow, two-storey building in the old part od Potsdam. The reception was - if not unfriendly, then at least reserved. I had been given a single room on the ground floor with a single bed up against the wall, so I asked to have it changed to a room with a large bed. The... More

I spent two nights here last week. I arrived after closing hours, and it was slightly hard to find, also because of the strange German street numbering system. The hotel is a very quiet place, and I slept well. The breakfast was excellent, with a lot of choice between good products. Staff was friendly and helpful. I think price/value was... More

Unless you're plan is to spend more time in your room rather than exploring Potsdam, this place is perfect for top quality little double rooms in a great location. The breakfast is fantastic too and you could easily gorge on all the fresh choices including made-to-order eggs whichever way you like. All the staff were really friendly and helpful too,... More

Me and my fiancé stayed here while on vacation. We are from Texas, US and speak a tiny bit of German. Everyone in the hotel was so helpful. The rooms were really clean and comfortable. It's a great location for sightseeing in a Potsdam. Everything is so close and we walked everywhere and didn't need to take a taxi :).... More

This is a very comfortable hotel with spacious rooms and perhaps the best breakfast I have had anywhere. The staff were very charming and helpful. the rooms are spacious with high ceilings and comfortable furnishings. Parking is on a private site 100 metres from the hotel. The hotel is very well located for Sanssouci Park and palaces and the town... More

Our room was very comfortable, the breakfast was one of the best in Germany. There were so many food choices plus you could make your own waffles and blend fruit or vegetables for a variety of juices and smoothies. The location was great for seeing the sights in Potsdam and all the restaurants are within a few blocks walk. We... More

This is indeed great value for money. We booked the smallest room possible which proved to be quite adequate. Bathroom is great with a shower where You can swing a cat! Only minus is that there is no a/c which might be a major problem. However breakfast is fantastic and really delicious - there is even gluten free products, always... More

Just what we like, good breakfast and a location near the center and train. We could walk to this lodging from the train in 20 minutes. Very clean rooms and helpful staff. This hotel has been recently remodeled so it has a new feel and an interesting history.

The hotel is an old but tastefully renovated building in a quiet cul-de-sac, on the south side of the city centre. The room was large and comfortable - once the heating really got going. It was -2C outside and it was only on the second of our five days at the hotel that we felt it was comfortable to sit... More
