“Not Recommended”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This was a disappointing pension. I will point out the good points first so as to be fair. If it's Park Sansscouci you want to visit (as we did), the location is great - you can easily walk to the park in 15 minutes. Next, the owners do put on a very good breakfast, much more than one normally finds in such a B&B. However, this is overshadowed by the general lack of cleanliness in the common areas and especially the bedroom. There were hairs in the shower and the floors had not been properly cleaned. The towels were clearly air-dried (stiff) and reeking of fabric softener. The light in the bathroom was dim and almost useless, and the one table lamp in the room did not work. There was a complete lack of attention to detail. Finally, the owners could not manage a smile the entire time (we were there two nights). We did not feel welcome and could not wait to leave.

Room Tip: Room 15 was quite possibly the worst in most ways. I would hope the others are better.

The location is very good, we just took about 5 min. to walk to Sansoucci , very quiet, we slept incredibly well and the breakfast was something special. Wonderful friendly hosts, a beautiful setting and garden to relax in . Everything was absolutely brilliant!

Pension Potsdam is a really pleasant place to stay. It is located in a very quiet area. It is close to all Potsdam attractions (near Park Sans Sousi). Our room was spacious (with a flat-screen TV) and the bathroom was comfortable and clean (hairdryer included). Room was furnitured in old style what I loved in this place.

Great and tasty breakfast with a huge choice. I can not complain at all about that place.

The staff was friendly, answering all our question with pleasure.

I can recommend that place for all people staying in Potsdam.

I agree with everything Chiquitin has noted about this fine, little hotel. I should have remembered our room number so you could ask for it when you book, but it was huge, clean and even had a small balcony.

The closest place for an evening meal is about a 10-15 min walk so plan accordingly.

Tip #1: When coming from Berlin via train, take the RE1 from Zoo. There was a very confusing bus detour with the S7 when we went.
Tip #2: It is easy to visit Berlin using the local bus and the RE1. Just remember to buy a Berlin ABC Tagescarte on the bus, not a Potsdam ABC Tagescarte. It is a seperate screen on the vending machine.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2008

We were pleasantly surprised with Pension Potsdam. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and very spacious. The beds were comfortable and the pension is located in a quiet street, but near a bus stop and walking distance to the city center.
The staff was friendly and they didn't have problems to answer our questions.
But the best of all was the breakfast buffet with juices, cereals, eggs, cheeses, sausages, breads, fruits, yogurts and even lox. Really, it was huge.

  • Liked — The breakfast buffet.
  • Disliked — Nothing.
