Excellent breakfast. Lovely decorated and very spacious room. Very friendly staff. Great location in the centre of Potsdam; Taxi, Metro, Restaurants, terraces; they are all nearby. Price to quality rating is really good. Really felt at home in this hotel. Absolutely recommended. Pillow's are quite soft; I needed two in order to feel one. No possibility to sleep under one...

Great hotel right in the centre of Potsdam. Breakfast was very good and so was my evening meal at the restaurant next door (that was a recommendation by the receptionist and she was right). Free wifi, free parking (thought I guess you'd have to reserve it as the carpark was small). Nice area to walk around too.

It took about 15-20 mins to get there from Potsdam main trainstation, by tram and then by walk.T he hotel staff was nice, quick checkin, and I was directed to my room, which was in the... More

My partner and I stayed in this hotel in November 2014. We wanted somewhere quiet but close to Berlin and Potsdam was a perfect choice. This hotel is in a super location in Potsdam. Close to Sans Souci with trams and buses close to hand. Although our room was small, it was perfectly equipped with a lovely shower room. The... More

This hotel is very centrally located in Potsdam and also was renovated a few years ago so is supposed to be a good choice. But, reception is not attentive to any request ,we have ordered the room two months in advance and paid for a room facing the back of the building. That way we want to avoid noise. When... More

We have travelled extensively since we retired about 10 years ago and luckily have only needed to reschedule due to personal emergencies a couple of times. On these occasions the airlines, hotels etc were very fair in costs related to rescheduling. We were recently on our way to Poland with a stopover in Potsdam and booked this hotel for 2... More

We were very pleased with our stay at this comfortable hotel. Probably its best feature was the helpful staff, who went the extra mile to assist us with our questions. I was impressed with their knowledge, and even more with their attitude of genuinely wanting to help us. The hotel itself couldn't have been more central, right next to the... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find the room in this hotel to be very modern spacious and well equipped. The only down side was the poor quality of the beds. They were new but far too hard and firm, and it would have been just as comfortable to sleep on the floor. Both my husband and I had terrible sleep.... More
