“Very nice hotel! Positively surprised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Based on the fact that the hotel has only 3 stars I was not expecting too much but was surprised positively when arriving. The building itself is a bit old but has character. The room was clean and the interior was tasteful. I especially enjoyed the bath/shower which was heaven compared to the average hotel where I have stayed. Breakfast was good considering the price and personnel friendly. It is located about 5 minutes from the city centre. If you are staying in Potsdam you should consider this hotel!

Room Tip: My room was on the top floor of the main building. These rooms are very nice!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

The "Hofmaler" is the perfect place to stay in Potsdam. Located in the vicinity of all major attractions in Potsdam it is the perfect location. When we came back to the hotel the first night a delicious smell of freshly baked cake surrounded us in the entrance which had been just prepared for the next morings breakfast. The rooms are very modern and big enough if one is staying in Postday to visist the town and not to stay all day in the hotel. The bathrooms are integrated in the room in form of glass cubes and the best is that there is a floor heating in each of them. The staf is extremly friendly and helpfull.

I had a chance to stay in this hotel so far once but it is worth to be reccomended. Cozy rooms with funky and modern bathroom, hotel is place in quiet area without any street noises, it is 5 min away from main street in Potsdam, close to tram stop and close to main rail way station. Price of the hotel is good, but you need to pay additional 5 Euro for breakfast (which are very tasty) and if you would like to get an internet connection you need to buy in reception special card (around 6 Euro for 3h access to internet). Nevertheless I had very good stay there. Ohhh and service in this hotel was excellent :)

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

A quiet location, close to the heart of Potsdam - more of interest for those seeking culture than partying. A good check-in experience, very modern room - though no English language channels on the TV. At least one British news channel would have been nice. Water and a small pack of sweets in room, free of charge. Good sized bathroom, small balcony and a decent (though a bit 1970's) standard of decor. Staff were really good. Mid-range price, but felt that I got good value. Previously stayed at the Mercure by the harbour. Can recommend both - not much difference in comfort, but Hofmaler has a superior location, is much smaller and feels it, with by far the friendlier staff.

Room Tip: New rooms to the back of the hotel quite good for catchng the sun on the balcony. Air conditioning e...
