“Great Hotel and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This NH is very organized and modern. Everything works and the stuff is really friendly. As an Express Hotel, rooms do not include a refrigerator and breakfast is a little limited. Located about 300m from two metro stations, so it helps you move around. We did not use Wifi

I always start with this preface: I travel for work and am on the road over 250 days a year. I stay in over 150 different hotels each year, from big chains to boutiques and everything in between. I have a good baseline and realistic expectations when it comes to hotels. I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in March 2013.

First, the pros:
Clean, reasonably quiet, very helpful staff and good breakfast.

The cons:
This is NOT @ postdamer platz. It's a solid 10 minute walk there, or anywhere for that fact. The rooms are small and not very functional. The beds are awful and I woke each morning in pain. One of the biggest complaints is the free internet. It is AWFUL. It is SO slow, it took almost an hour to download on e-mail. It's completely useless. I need internet for work, and this was a work trip. There is an option to purchase "high speed" internet, but you have to do it first when you sign on, otherwise suffer with the slow internet for 24 hours! There is not a real bar, restaurant or mini bar here. Very basic.

Summary:
The hotel staff made up for the shortfalls of the hotel. My trip was tainted because the weather was awful during our stay and that made the 10-20 minutes of walking to get to anything pretty miserable. I was anxiously awaiting my departure. I would NOT stay at this hotel again. There are much better options in better areas for the same price.

Very pleasant staff. Very clean. Very functional. Nothing more than that.

Breakfast is unexceptional compared to other Berlin hotels I have stayed at.

This is fine for business and the 10 minute walk to Potsdamer Platz but for a romantic break, not really.

No complaints about this place. Just it's function, wipe clean and has wifi.

Staying at the NH Berlin Potsdammer Platz was ok if you want a more out of the centre experience. It is a 5 min or so walk from the nearest tube station, just a couple of blocks and you're connected with with the rest of Berlin although depending where you want to be this could become a half hour journey. We didn't particularly want to explore the hotel surroundings as there wasn't much appeal but I believe there is a park further down and plenty of cycle paths (and hire at the hotel).

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel lobby was quite acceptable with breakfast being served within the lobby if you go for B&B.

The room itself was quite basic but clean and comfortable, nothing really to write home about but if you're just sleeping and bathing there it's more than adequate. There is a bonus of free Wifi, you just need to get a new voucher to login from reception every time it expires (up to 24h).

I would consider staying again although I have stayed in more central and nicer hotels in Berlin for the same price.

Room Tip: There is a main road outside that does get quite noisy although I am unsure of the rear hotel view o...

You'd think from the name that the hotel was actually at the Potsdamer Platz, but its over 1km away. They've taken a leaf out of Ryan Air's book in terms of creative geography i think. Not the end of the world - its only a 10/15 min walk, but something to be aware of. The room was very basic (as expected, so no disappointment there), and spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

But for anyone travelling for business, the advertised "hi-speed internet" is slower than the 56k dial-up I had as a kid. Its absolutely useless. I struggled to send even a basic email in less than 2 minutes, and you can forget about downloading any attachments. Choosing this hotel meant I was completely unproductive for two days. If you have any need to work during your stay in Berlin, I'd recommend you look somewhere else.

Just returned from Berlin, we stayed 3 nights in NH Potsdamer Platz. First of all it has an excellent location, just 10 minutes walk from Potsdamer Platz, about 15 from Reichstag & Brandenburger Tor. U Bahn (metro) & train stations are also very close about 5 minutes walking. the room was abslutely great, clean & spacious. the staff in the reception were very helpful and were happy to assist in any kind of question regarding sight seeing in Berlin, transportation etc... Breakfast was very good.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone!
