The Worst Ever Hotel !!! We stayed over the weekend on our way back to the US & it was a huge dissapointmentThe room smells of smoke, dirty bathroom and urine stains on the toilet.Our Breakfast was horrible and we paid 20.00 USD - Totally Not Worth. The room walls are thin and the guest next door made noise the whole night. We called the reception in the night and no one answered. Our Check in was confused and took 30min, ridiculous. My husband is an Accor Member from The US and this was never acknowledged by the Reception staff. The WiFi in the lobby comes and goes. No one seems to be in charge of this hotel. We paid well over 100.00 USD and for this we can go to the Crowne Plaza nearby and have a better stay.
Second time we've stayed at Novotel, Berlin and it has now become our go to hotel when visiting Berlin. Rooms are large and modern with safety security box, fridge and microwave. A bath along with a shower is an added bonus too. The hotel is situated beside the ubahn which makes it easy to go anywhere in Berlin. There are some lovely restaurants in the vicinity and a 10 min walk into centre of Potsdamer Plaza if not taking the ubahn. There is a bar with small terrace, which is great in the Summer and breakfast is available. Nice quiet area, but still loads to see and do. Cant wait to go back.
Nothing special compared to the regular Novotel hotels room. We got place for 4 - two queen size beds. The room was always clean and well organized. Furnishing is also standard Novotel - clean and functional, TV was great. The best I believe is the location, pretty close to several activities and you can go walking !
The Novotel is the ‘big’ sister of three Ibis hotels in a row next to Anhalter Strasse S-Bahn station. The location is convenient (apart from the local transit it’s an easy walk to Checkpoint Charlie or Potsdamer Platz and only 15 minutes to the Philharmonie, for example) but also boring and rather characterless for Berlin. And big sis is alike her two younger siblings (same separation of bathroom and WC [some people find this a plus others a minus], same one piece plastic shower cubicle that always leaks water onto the bathroom floor however careful you are, same breakfast for a higher price (this was a surprise), same unresponsive heating/airco system and similar Ibis atmosphere; but her rooms are bigger, the TV is bigger, there’s a table and (why I booked) a refrigerator and microwave. But no plates or cutlery beyond one teaspoon. Faced with a choice I book Ibis for predictability and price – at least that works at the cheaper end which is why I return to the Ibis Budget at Alexanderplatz. The more upmarket Ibis (they prefer I call them Accor, but most people find that confusing) are a bit lost in hotel land. They are an upgrade to the basic Ibis on some aspects but not on others; the same-breakfast-but for-a-higher-price is unforgivable; the predictability is a plus but at around the €90 level of this Novotel small independents start to offer more character (albeit unpredictably). I think for more money I prefer more character over predictability, so it’s back to my trusted alternatives of either the Ibis Budget on Alexanderplatz or try something more upmarket and unknown. But if it’s predictability you’re after (and maybe Accor loyalty points) and you know what to expect from an Ibis, this hotel will be fine for you. Corona: As a plus point it’s worth mentioning that early September 2020 this hotel was doing well on covid-19 safety measures: Facemask in all areas except when eating; disposable gloves for serving yourself at the buffet breakfast (and please book your timeslot to enable contact tracing if necessary) and anti-viral liquid dispensers at key points. Name: A negative point for being economical with the truth (sure, you're not the only guilty one but that's no excuse). 'Potsdamer Platz' is one S-Bahn stop away (About 600 metres). A 'Suite' is a 'set of rooms' not one room a bit bigger than in the neighbouring hotels.…
We recently stayed for 5 nights at the Novotel Suites Berlin Potsdammer Platz, the suite was spacious, clean and even had a microwave and fridge. The area is great and is very near to the Landwehr Canal, Technical Museum and the lovely Gleisdreieck Park but also within easy walking distance of Potsdammer Platz and Checkpoint Charlie. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
