Stayed here only shortly, but the Scandic Hotel Berlin Potsdamer Platz proved to be of guaranteed good Scandic quality. Very well positioned only a short walk away from the Potsdamer Platz station entrance (the station entrance can be seen from the hotel), yet in a peaceful location with hardly any traffic around. Even the standard category rooms are spacious and modern, equipped with an empty minibar. In the superior class the minibar is filled and the contents of it included in the price!
Breakfast is not included in many of the rates they offer and the only downside of the place is its ridiculously overpriced breakfast (20€/person/night). It is a good Scandic breakfast, so don't worry if it is included in your rate, it will certainly fill your stomach. However, if the breakfast is not included, just walk across the Tilla Durieux Park in front of the hotel to the Potsdamer Platz Arkaden where you can find a number of eateries offering breakfasts from 5€ to 15€!
Some posters complained in the previous post that the promised view is not to the Potsdamer Platz. I guess it is because of not understanding what Potsdamer Platz really is. I.e. it's a much larger entity than just the street corner with the station entrance, SonyCenter and Bahn Tower. Scandic Hotel is located opposite the Daimler complex, the grassy strip of the Tilla Durieux Park is between the hotel and Daimler complex.
I will certainly have a look on this hotel again when I'm going to be in Berlin the next time (especially if the price remains as tempting as this time: 76€/room/night).
