At a great location, just 3 min to walk to the town center, still in a calm side road. Great break fast, large rooms, newly renovated. Friendly staff & owner, parking is around the corner, but only 1 min to walk I would pick this hotel again!

This hotel is situated in an area with cobblestone roads not far from where the big Christmas market was being held. The staff spoke good English and were very friendly. They also did a good job explaining the somewhat tricky parking lot entrance method. Speaking of parking, as soon as I made my booking, which included the fact that I... More

This hotel was in an old building but up to date in the bedrooms. Convenient for restuarants & public transport (15 min walk) in a quiet neighbourhood. Excellent breakfast really good choice of fresh breads & all other buffet items. Breakfast room quite small but adequate for number of guests. Efficient staff.

We decided to stay in Potsdam and not in Berlin and we did not regret our decision at all!!! To commute by train to Berlin was only 25 mins and the bus to the station passed very near the hotel. I don't know why but choosing a hotel in Potsdam took us more time than usual and when we were... More

This hotel comes very close to deserving five stars. Our room was spacious, clean, and quiet. The bed was comfortable and the shower pressure was strong. The hotel is perfectly situated to take advantage of the long, pedestrian-only street, the key tourist attractions, and public transportation. The staff members were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was AMAZINGLY good and... More

I agree with another reader that the room was too hot (but it was exceptionnally hot that day). Private parking lot a bit small but ok and cheap. Breakfast was what made me give 4 out of 5: never seen such a wide choice of (some expensive) products.

Enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was very close to the shopping area and the historic sites. The breakfast offered great variety and was delicious. My large double room was very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would stay here again when I return to the area.

We stayed 3 nights in June 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff friendly and helpful, quiet double room on second floor with great shower and fantastic buffet breakfast. The hotel and Potsdam were just perfect for visiting Berlin. It is only a 15 minute walk to the main train station and it takes just 25 minutes to the centre... More

We stayed for two nights at the Hotel am Großen Waisenhaus in February 2014. Our stay was very pleasant with a friendly staff, large double room, and very generous breakfast. The hotel is about a five minute walk to the shops, restaurants and cafés of Potsdam and a ten minute walk to the historic sites. The hotel is also about... More

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
