the second time I have been to this hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfy. The food is excellent. the staff are very helpful. the only thing I would like improved is the speed of the free wi-fi. I could have upgraded to faster speed for 8 euros a day, but am used to unlimited free when on... More

The hotel is excellent, settled in a very convenient place near the old downtown area and sansoucci park. The rooms are very elegant, with old fashioned furniture. There is also a restaurant in the hotel serving an excellent food with a very kind and helpful staff (both at the hotel reception desk and restaurant).

My colleagues and I stayed here for three nights. Not one if us enjoyed it or had anything good to say about it. Do be prepared to step into a dark, cold, unfriendly place, where the water from the tap/shower is unreliable - it is hot one minute and cold another minute. There was a horrible smell in the bathroom... More

A perfect hotel to discover beautiful Potsdam and Sanssouci Park. All in reach by walking. The hotel itself is a former Steigenberger Maxx hotel and this is how it looks like - a bit run-down. But the rooms are clean. I dislike hotel rooms with an integrated bathroom. Breakfast is okay, variety of fresh fruit is limited. Avoid to park... More

We stayed in Steigenberger hotels repeatedly and thus did not hesitate in our choice. In fact, we entered Potsdam only 12 days after spending two nights in their superb InterCity Berlin-Schönefeld (see my enthusiastic review). It is hard to grasp that both the hotels belong to the same group, ranked the same 4 stars and demand equal price! In Sanssouci... More

Of course the location is excellent - a short walk to main street of Potsdam town, close to a number of restaurants and very close to the entrance to Sanssouci Park. We chose it on that basis and the very good earlier reviews, but having stayed there would agree with the less good more recent reviews- they seem to believe... More

Given the brand reputation, I guess I expected a lot more from this hotel. You'll pay for the location - it's in an amazing, central location for exploring the city. But everything else about this hotel is average. I don't speak any German at all and felt like a burden to the hotel reception staff. I travel a lot and... More

I stayed two nights in the hotel. The location is just next to the entrance to famous Sanssouci - former summer palace of Prussian kings - German rival of Versailles. The breakfast offer was good as well as the service of restaurant staff. However, the reception staff was not very helpful. Although the check in is 2pm, I needed to... More

We would not recommend this hotel for visiting town at a time when you cannot spend all day (and even most of the night) somewhere out. The hotel does not offer a lobby and rooms to us were no longer up to date, old furniture and somewhat odd, although everything was working. We booked the hotel for three nights via... More

This is a very good hotel which I can recommend for both business and pleasure. Even better was the service and the positive way all our wishes was handled - a big salute to Stephanie in the reseptionen who helped and arranged everything we asked for. Thanks!
