I stayed in the Ibis Budget City Potsdamer Platz for 4 nights during a very cold March. I was at the end of a trip through other parts of Europe so I was a bit weary. However, the room I had was really clean and warm. It was a bit clinical looking with 2 single beds but I liked the different lighting options. The shower was nice but you really would need to know people well to share the room.
The check in was fine - the man who checked me was a bit flustered but it was okay. You don't get a key, you get a key code and this is great as you can come and go without having to hand your key in. The code stopped working one day as the computers had a problem but it was sorted quickly. Cleaning was great. The breakfast area is really well done, wonderfully colourful! There are two dispensing machines - offering hot drinks and soups and beer, cold drinks and snacks. You are really near to everything and there are shops and a Lidl really near.
My only complaint would be the breakfast. I was 7.50 euro a day and I paid for it for 4 days but it is really basic - not worth it at all. Great accommodation, funky layout, friendly enough staff - avoid the breakfast
