This hotel, though in a lovely setting on the river, is in a small neighborhood with no shops and just a few restaurants. It is across the street from the train station with direct service into Berlin. I recommend you pay the upgrade for the river view, I think it was 20€ more a day and so worth it. Breakfast... More

Rather average business hotel. The rooms are good, clean and adequate for a few nights. Bathroom is of good size and as hot as the shower gets as cold the tiles you walk on are. I didn't find any slippers in the room so cold feet in the morning were free of charge. WiFi also FOC in all rooms. The... More

Nothing fancy, but functional and well located next to the university and the station. Spacious restaurant with beautiful view of the lake, also from the bar. Good rooms, but small TV. Rock hard beds, ouch. Whoever invented and also whoever decided for the electronic key system deserves a slap on the wrist - four (4) step to get in the... More

This hotel was recently the venue of a conference that we organised. And indeed, we were very satisfied how the hotel handled all this. The service was very friendly and professional and they handled things very smoothly. The food was good, prices moderate. The location is also very convenient: Located directly next to the S-train station Griebnitzsee of Berlin's S-train... More

Recently stayed at this hotel in order to visit Potsdam. It was a short 2 stop local train stop away. The hotel is located steps away from the train station, in a beautiful residential area and directly on the lake. It is well worth getting the hotel room with a view of the lake. You can easily see rowers, sailboats... More

This Hotel is on the shore of Griebnitzsee. Nice quite rooms and a huge terrace with view on the lake. Rooms are big and of the "Seminar Style". Food is somewhat old fashioned German but the overall quality is good. The Hotel rents bikes to discover the many lakes, castles, historic houses and landscaped parks around Potsdam. Nice Service and... More

The hotel is small, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast has a wide variety of choice and although not many of the staff speak good English, they understand and are willing to help wherever they can. The location of the hotel is only a minute's walk from Griebnitzsee station, which is only 6 minutes from Potsdam Hbf. And the view... More

Stayed at the Hotel Griebnitzsee and can only agree with the other viewers - very good hotel in a very nice neighborhood. If you like to go for a run in the morning, its perfect. In 50 min you can run around the lake, mostly through the forest and along amazing historic villas. The hotel is very clean, staff friendly... More

Hotel is beautifully situated on the Griebnitz lake in the area of Potsdam. An S-Bahn (regional train) station is right across from the entrance and is well connected to Potsdam and Berlin (Berlin Central Station is 35 minutes away). The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are nicely furnished and are quite large. My room was in the... More

The hotel is just across the road from the Griebnitzsee station S-Bahn (and indeed many rooms have a view of the platform). The reception, bar and dining room and conference rooms are on one side of the road, the majority of bedrooms are on the other. You can either cross the road or use the underground tunnel that joins the... More
