The Hotel Voltaire is very well situated in the town to visit the historic attractions. We arrived at the train station and walked to the Hotel this took about 15 minutes, however the tram stops outside the hotel and is a good option in the rain. The hotel was clean and comfortable, our room was quiet and we were given coffee and tea making equipment on request. There was a small drinks fridge in which we could store a few items. The safe was easy to operate. We did not have breakfast as there were several good bakeries close to the hotel. There are two supermarkets on Brandenburger Str. which sell a good range of items and were open in the evenings.
We stayed for two nights in October. We arrived on Monday afternoon and most museums were closed as is common in Germany, however the New Palace is open on Monday and was shut on Tuesday. We decided to walk through the Dutch Quarter right opposite the hotel to the New Garden. This was most attractive and we easily followed a path along the lake to the Cecilienhof Palace. The Palace was closed but the hotel within the palace serves coffee and cake at a very reasonable price. It was good to eat and drink where the Potsdam Conference took place in 1945. Photos in entrance of the Big Three - Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin.
On Tuesday we visited Park Sanssouci. This was an easy walk 10 minutes from the hotel. We purchased a Premium Day ticket for 19 Euro which gave entrance to all Palaces except the New Palace as it was closed on that day. There is so much to see that it was impossible for us to visit all buildings on one day. We recommend the Orangery Palace, the New Chambers and of course Sanssouci Palace.
Potsdam itself is very attractive, a good atmosphere. lots of eating places, good shops and lots to do.
