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

Would recommend this hotel to friends, staff are all very helpful, the rooms are very clean, decently sized, and comfortable. Plenty of room to put our travel cot for our baby in the same space. Tv options standard I.e. Limited English language channels. Wifi works well. Heavy good quality curtains keep out the light. There is a lift which is... More

Basic hotel rooms. Nothing fancy but clean and well attended. Internet was less than desirable and the elevators were slow. The breakfast was adequate. Staff was friendly. Overall it was a simple travelers/business hotel. Nothing to write home about.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had high expectations, and we weren't disappointed. Nice sized room, great bathroom with roomy shower, all very clean, fluffy towels and bathrobe and slippers. All there. Breakfast arranged and prepared with care to detail, and yummy choices of breads, cheeses, tea, and, and, and. Location couldn't be better, just in the middle of... More

This hotel was excellent in all respects. The reception staff were all helpful and charming, and spoke better English than I do. My room was clean and well-appointed and the free WiFi worked perfectly. The breakfast buffet was well presented with plenty of variety - hot options included crepes and pancakes on some days, and sausage, bacon and scrambled egg... More

The location is perfect. But due to a Volksfest we had problems finding the hotel by car because all the streets in town were closed. We had to park i a public garage a good walk from the hotel. Troublesom to take the luggage to the hotel. It would have been nice if the hotel had informed us about this... More

Modern and comfortable in all reapects. Excellent location. Good a/c, noiceless and effective. Excellent bathroom with both a bathtub and shower cubicle. Our room looked out at a very busy and noisy square in front of the Potstam Branderburg Gate, but we heard no noise from outside in the room --- the best sound proving we have experiened in years....

If you are visiting Potsdam then this hotel is an excellent choice. Its located in the centre of town at the start of the pedestrian zone. Very clean and a nice suite with a good view of the Brandenburg gate. I would not hesitate to recommend or to stay at again if I happen to visit Potsdam in the future.

i would be hard pushed not to say Yes that this is the best hotel in Potsdam, bear a few small gripes. The hotel is centrally located right next to the Matador restaurant, you can order from their menu from the hotels seating area outside and charge to the room. The room we were appointed was excellent, cold air conditioning... More
