“Good hotel”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The hotel was very nicely appointed, clean and the staff helpful. Only issue was with the bird tweeting in the corridors and the fact that the wooden flooring in the bedrooms meant you could hear your upstairs neighbours every step. Breakfast was varied but the machine coffee was not the best. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

I like this place; close to Potsdamer platz, but still quietly located in a side-street. Modern design, comfortable rooms, and great breakfast selection. I stayed here during a biz trip, but I would also book it for a family trip. Nice place overall.

A group of us were attending a conference in Berlin and we all stayed at the Scandic. This is large modern hotel which seems to get all their furniture from IKEA. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was very clean. The bar on the 3rd floor had a good atmosphere with great beers.The buffet breakfast was great.This is the place for large groups the check in and out for 144 of us was excellent.

Room Tip: The 8th floor has Exec rooms

It's for sure a nice Hotel in a very good position, but too "cold" and too much without "soul" for my taste. Furthermore reception staff wasn't very friendly at all and room service was so expensive (15,00 euro room service charge) that we thought to be in 5 stars luxury...Honestly I have to say they have a very good breakfast indeed with high quality and great choice of food.

Overall a good hotel and good experience:
- modern and comfortable hotel, but not too bland as the room design makes it quite quite warm (I would not say cosy though).
- reception staff: very mixed. At check-in, the guy was lovely. At check-out, the lady was arrogant and unfriendly. When asking for a taxi to the concierge, we were instructed to wait outside under the rain at the taxi booth, and had to wait 20 minutes. I am sure they can do better...
- breakfast: it is a big hotel, and if you go at peak hour, the breakfast place is huge, overcrowded, noisy, and you can feel a bit miserable.

The hotel is new, modern and ideally located. Rooms are comfortable, gym- for European standards is reasonable and breakfast is really great!
I also want to commend the hotel staff on their great service!
If you plan on going there, which I would definitely recommend, Just make sure you bring your amenities/ toiletries with you. They only supply a liquid that is supposed to be soap as well as shampoo. If you ask for conditioner or body lotion, the answer you will get is that it's not "green"...

Another issue you need to consider is that although internet/ WI-FI is complimentary, it's inconsistent. You will have to constantly go back, log in and put your room number/ pass-code. Pretty annoying especially on a business trip.

Room Tip: Suggest taking a superior room- mini bar is complimentary!
