Best location. Best staff. Best bang for your buck. Everything. We stopped over in Potsdam for a day before we went to Berlin. We so underestimated Potsdam and this hotel. We were looking around for it after we got off the 91 tram to Luissenplatz, and we're just thrilled to find it RIGHT NEXT to Potsdam's BRANDENBURG GATE and right... More

Booked on line so was not sure what the hotel would be like. Very quaint with excellent ammenities. Large room and bathroom. Room had petite fours and a letter of introduction. Close to all the cafes etc. Next to the main attractions of Potsdam, so everything is in walking distance. Breakfast was great with a lot of fresh produce.

We stayed here on a bike trip. Lovely and responsive staff. The room was typical, clean and adequate space for Two people. We asked for an extra pillow and it turned up immediately. The breakfast is very good. This hotel is located right on the square by the Brandenburger Gate. A terrific location with plenty of restaurants and clubs.. All... More

We were lucky enough to check-in early-ish so were shown to a first floor apartment at the rear and rejected it so got the one next door overlooking the main street, Square and Gate. We could not have stood a week in the one with no real view, it was claustrophobic and we'd challenge its description as an "apartment". Ours... More

We could not find a hotel in Berlin that we liked so we decided to stay in Potsdam. What a great decision! Potsdam has alot to offer! The palaces are beautiful! And, we enjoyed walking through the pedestrian only downtown shopping area. The hotel is in a great location. Very close to the palace gates, so, we were able to... More

Very disappointed! I came here for a conference at the university and brought my family, hoping to visit Potsdam at the same time. Several problems here: 1) We reserved an apartment, thinking that we would have an extra room for the child to sleep in while we get work done. In fact, the word 'apartment' is a huge exaggeration. It's... More

Beautiful 4 star hotel located close to Sansoucci palace and the old town. Room was big and modern. Big bathroom with great strong shower. Breakfast excellent with variety of breads, meats, eggs, fruit, etc.

On the main square, next to the Brandenburg Gate, not the one in Berlin, the one in Potsdam. Cute, vibrant city, right outside Hotel door, walking only streets, many shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, concerts, all up and down this main street, about seven blocks long. Hotel room we had was Okay, shower good, no leaks, good pressure, bed comfortable, chairs,... More

Location is ideal for the old city, the palaces, and transportation. Staff were friendly and helpful without exception. Most have good English skills, but some German is appreciated. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were clean, contemporary and quiet. Breakfast was good but not exceptional. A/C and wifi were excellent. The heading says it all.

This hotel is located on the edge of old town with the arch just outside the front door. The rooms are lovely and well appointed. The desk clerk was efficient and check in was easy. The only downside is that it's difficult to drive to because it's in a pedestrian zone. We parked illegally to get our luggage out and... More
