This hotel is not air conditioned. The hotel was advertised as air conditioned, and we selected the hotel for this reason. Upon arrival, however, we switched on the air conditioning only to find out it was turned off in the entire hotel because according to the front desk, the hotel is only air conditioned when the outside temperature reaches 20C (the temperature was in fact above 20C). Additionally, the window only opens a few centimeters and was unable to provide adequate ventilation throughout the night. If that wasn't enough, the constant street noise, including buses and motorcycles made it hard to sleep. I immediately requested a room change to face the back of the hotel upon learning of the air conditioning problem. The hotel, however, refused to change our room until the next day. There is no excuse falsely advertising that the room was air conditioned, and no justification for turning on the air conditioning for only a short period each day.

On the positive side, there are a number of reasonably priced restaurants in the area, including a 3.90 all you can eat breakfast buffet on Stresemannstraße across from the Holiday Inn Express. You can't miss the banner hanging from the window. http://www.wirtshaus-hasenheide.de/fruehstueck_en.htm. Also, the Anhalter S Bahn is also conveniently located less than a block away from the hotel.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the rear of the hotel as it is much quieter with the window open

Berlin Wall, Check point Charlie just down the road, this Hotel has a great location. Downstairs bar and breakfast was very good. Only downside was the cost of Wifi in the rooms, however internet is provided free in the lobby. Airconditioning was very confortable in the Berlin summer too!

This hotel is very close to S-Bahn station Anhalter Bahnhof. And it's better decision to find hotel. Postdamer Platz is far from hotel: 2-3 bus stop or 1 S-Bahn stop or 15-20 min walk.

Near S-bahn there are 2-3 bars - you can drink beer till midnight and get most better and cheaper breackfast from 8a.m.

Room - Ibis standard.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

Hotel is located in a great location. We can walk to Berlin Wall, checkpoint Charlie & etc.

We just found that a pillow of IBIS is small if compare with other hotel (When we stay at Marriot we got 3bigs pillow per person but in IBIS we got only small one!!) breakfast cost 10EUR not included in room rate , we’re OK for this price coz we got everything…

If compare with the price & location. It’s good enough to stay at Ibis Berlin Potsdamer Platz 

The service is okay for this type of hotel and the rooms are okay but there is always a funny smell in the hallways to the rooms, internet access is limited and depending on where you book the room is a little miss leading!
