“Great City-Hotel in the Heart of Berlin.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

I stayed at the Scandic for a few nights during a business trip to Berlin and was more than satisfied.
The location of the hotel is perfect, right next to the Potsdamer Platz Arkaden shopping mall and U-Bahn Station Mendelssohn-Bartholdy-Park, which brings you to Friedrichstraße/Unter den Linden in 5 Minutes.
The personnell was very friendly and efficient. The hotel is new and modern, with a touch of Scandinavic forest in the hallways. The room was spacious and well equipped, the bed super comfy. There's free WiFi everywhere in the hotel, all you need is your room number and last name - you can connect as many gadgets as you like!
The breakfast was very nice too. The room is rather big and it's not the typical restaurant feeling. You rather feel like in a modern business cafeteria. Well, I liked it. Travelling alone, you can sit at a counter with other guests and easily strike up a conversation. Oh, and the choices are fantastic. Whatever you usually eat/drink for breakfast, they have it.
I can very much recommend to stay here, no matter if it's for business or pleasure.

We stayed there for a week in our honeymoon. The room was comfortable with a very good bed and very well equiped. The mini bar was empty - we could order things or buy in the supermarket.
We hadn't payed for breakfast but we decided to have it many days because it was so good. Many different yogurts, breads, eggs, cheese, fruits and a good coffee machine where you could drink as many capuccinos as you wanted. A very good bio buffet too.
The receptionist gave us a lot of good tips. It was so cold one day that we didn't want to go out at night and had dinner in the restaurant. A very good food with fare prices and a lovely place to stay.
Even though Scandic is a 3 stars hotel it felt like we were on a 4 stars hotel.

Couldn't hope for more with this price as the hotel has very good location and U-Bahn behind the corner. Seemed to be popular but reception handled things quickly on our way in and out. My room was basic size with two beds, very clean but bit cold (air condition said 23 degrees but now way it was that warm). Breakfest was tasty. Highly recommend if you want central location with good prices.

the hotel is very nice with excellent breakfast and well placed for U and s bahn trains.i would have had no complaints if it had not been for a very bad experience in the bar on the first evening. we ordered two beers ,total cost 12euros ,at the bar which we paid for, but twice we were confronted by the barman and told we had not paid for them.one time was when we were at the foyer of the bar requesting some milk for our room later that evening ,even though we had clearly told him we had and who we had paid it to,quite embarrassing for us as you can imagine we did speak with the duty manager who offered her apologies,and said she would speak to the people in question, the bar staff were full of apologise the next evening although not convincing enough for me, and refused to take payment for our next drink, we did say we did not want any free drinks ,but the fact remains that we were accused of lying and thats something we are not.! we did frequent it again but this was only because there is no where near to have a drink wihout walking back to the centre which after a long day visiting the sights and markets was something we didnt want to do,and we knew it would spoil our holiday if we stayed away.we are two respectable ladies in our 50's and this experience did not make our stay there what we had hoped. the hotel needs a better system to ensure other guest do not experience what we did so i dont think we would stay there again or recommend which is a shame .

What can I say only fantastic! Location, hotel, room, service, hotel staff, breakfast all excellent. On arrival reception was buzzing. The line quickly vanished with every guest receiving full attention from the staff. Our turn and we were welcomed by a very friendly gentleman named Kojo. We got the option to upgrade to a superior suite for an extra 30 euro per night. Kojo explained the extras And we swiftly agreed. The room was located on the 8 th floor. Huge bed, tea and coffee, including herbal and green. Mini bar which got refilled every day. Because it was an upgrade you did not pay. In the Mini bar red,white wine, water, still and sparking, orange juice and ruhbarb juice. Wine glasses, tumblers and bottle opener. Everything you need. Bathroom very well equipped and spotless. Hair dryer etc. There was plenty of wardrobe space with hangers and shelves, also a iron an ironing board. Breakfast was an array of choice. Anyone who complains needs help! Everyone's dietary needs were catered for including a organic section. Food selection was vast, ranging from fresh fruit, chesses, cold meats, breads, jams, cereals, juices, oh my god amazing. Also available for the non experimental British traveler were scrambled egg, bacon etc with baked beans of course! Food was replenished constantly. Tables cleared quickly. All in all fantastic,

Room Tip: Upgrade it is well worth it

We stayed four nights at the Scandic and were extremely pleased. We were allowed to check in early, received excellent, friendly personal service and had a lovely room with a great view over Potsdamer Platz. We enjoyed the splendid breakfasts and the beds were extremely comfortable. We can heartily recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an excellent hotel at a very reasonable price.
