A clean, charming hotel, steeped in history. My husband had stayed here, 4 years ago when the hotel was still new. It is still very well managed with friendly staff. The breakfast is excellent! The room was very comfortable.

The hotel is in the historic town centre of Potsdam, about 20 minutes walk from the main railway station, 10 minutes from the stop for the tram to the station, 5 minutes from the pedestrianised Brandenburger Straße. This part of the street is a cul-de-sac, so quiet. I arrived at about noon which seemed to throw them. My room –... More

Located more or less in the city centre, this is the choice if you want to visit Potsdam. This hotel was a orphange in the past. And the pictures are all over the place. It is a very old building. Reception: It's located at the entrance. One desk, simple. Check in procedure fast. Room: I've got a room for a... More

Not the best location for visit oft he sights of Potsdam as it a bit in the middle of all sights. Rooms are large but lack a bit of decor, it felt extremly steril. Breakast was good with lots of choices including fresh orange, carrot and apple juice.

I knew when I booked this hotel that it did not have AC, and so I booked a single to avoid the top floor. However, I got a cheap upgrade offer when I was already traveling. I had forgotten about the problem with the top floor and accepted it. The top floor rooms face west with no shade, and at... More

Driving into any large city is almost impossible and the Berlin stories made looking for an alternative critical. Going on line we found Potsdam and its adjacency to Berlin by interurban rail. Then we found Hotel Am Grossen and we were pleasantly surprised for our two night stay. Wonderful staff, good lobby bar (we were thirsty), clean but sparse room,... More

we stayed as a base for the local half marathon; it was so close to sanssouci park and about one mile to the HBF for access to Berlin. Also the shops and restaurants are round the corner. The hotel streches! we had a ground floor, road front room with no noise to disturb us. The room facilities were just fine... More

Huge rooms. Fabulous atmosphere with great service and wonderful breakfast choice so what more do you want? Understand other guest comments about lack of aircon but no problem for us. Potsdam is interesting city to visit and would happily stay here again

This hotel provides an opportunity to enjoy a different experience from the standard hotel chain. Located in an ex Army barracks (1839) the building has had many uses before becoming the Waisenhaus in 2011. And for those of you who enjoy atmosphere there's plenty here to keep you interested. The rooms are large, windows operable and there's plenty of room... More
