"So much better than expected"
We stayed here the night before New Years, and the night after (they were booked for New Years). It was the perfect location! We parked in the garage at the mall across the road for the entire 3 nights since the hotel was full up, and ate over at the mall. It was walking distance to all the New Years festivities and equally walking distance to Checkpoint […] Charlie etc. Super close to several metros (we just used our feet though). Loved the hotel - super modern, ambient and so much better than expected. The walls are a little thin however - but other guests could be more considerate of their noise levels when checking at the early hours of the morning, slamming doors! We will be back, can't fault this place for the price (and the superior rooms come with a free mini bar!) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very close to alot of Berlin. Subway access could not be closer. Very convenient to potsdamer platzGenuine Expedia guest review
The Scandic Berlin is a nice clean hotel conveniently located very close to Potsdamer Platz. Our taxi driver spent an extra 5 minutes finding the hotel since the street it is on is new (as of Summer 2011), but didn't charge us for the extra time. The courtyard view from our room was slightly depressing, but courtyard views are rarely special anyway. […] Staff was efficient and helpful. Good value for money and I would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a very nice hotel in the heart of the city"
We were not sure what to expect because I have not been in Berlin for many years, but the Scandic was a pleasant surprise. Very comfortable rooms (motif is modern and kind of funky but not absurd and uncomfortable like some new hotels in the US), very clean, courteous and efficient staff. The hotel is in the middle of Berlin, a short walk to Brandenburg […] Gate and the Reichstag (you must make online reservations in advance to see that) and other sights. Also just a block from a major subway/train station which makes getting anywhere in Belin an easy hop. Very nice bar/ restaurants in the hotel. Downsides are we did not have much information in the room on how things worked, such as in-room dining or valet, that you usually have in other hotels. But the staff were very helpful and it was really no problem. Food and drinks are kind of pricey -- breakfast (a great buffet with many selections) costs 20 Euros if not included in your package. All in all, this was a very good find -- I will stay there again and recommend it to anyone who wants to see and get to know Berlin. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Scandic potsdamer plats Berlin review"
Nice hotel. Mordern scandanavian construction. See thru glass doors into bathroom. Comfortable beds. Free Internet svc requires fresh input of room no. & PW each time your computer goe Idle for a short tim. No restaurant. Expensive breakfast. U-bahn about 2 blocks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We chose this hotel because of its close proximity to Potsdamer Platz and the sights of central Berlin. The location is excellent, with easy access to the many good restaurants and shops of the Potsdamer Platz Arkaden. Our room was clean, modern, and spacious. Hotel info, messages, and room climate control were handled through a menu on the TV screen, […] but the climate control in our room didn't work well. Hotel staff was helpful but couldn't fix the AC problem. The hotel parking garage wasadvertised at 23 Euros/day but was full when we arrived, so we were directed to the nearby Potsdamer Platz parking garage for 20 Euros/day. A full buffet breakfast was available in the hotel for 20 Euros, but there are several less expensive options available in the Arkaden. There was no charge for wireless internet.

"Convenient, spacious, clean, and friendly staff!"
This was the best hotel I stayed at on a multi-city tour through Europe. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the hotel was very clean, the location was great (close to the U-Bahn, S-Bahn and nearby restaurants at Potsdamer Platz), and the staff were friendly and helpful. If I were to return to Berlin I would definitely consider staying at this […] hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I just returned from a stay at this hotel where I spent one night with my husband and our son and his family (wife and 2 year old). We booked it online and were a little afraid of the report that there was the possibility of noise from the trains, but we were on the top floor (8th) and did not hear a thing! The staff were very nice when we drove up […] at 1:30 in the morning. Only problem was that their parking lot was full so we had to park in the public lot, under the nearby shopping mall. It turned out to be a great location to park and only cost 9 euro. The sign said 20 euro but we drove out at 8:30 pm the next night, so maybe it was cheaper because we didn't stay the 24 hours? The location of the hotel couldn't have been better. There was no one to ask regarding where things were, so we just started walking towards the Brandenburg Gate and found it in about 20 minutes. Then we walked down the East side of the gate to find Checkpoint Charlie and after another 30 minutes, found it as well. By this time we had purchased a book on the Berlin Wall so had better directions on where to find landmarks. From Checkpoint Charlie we headed to the Topography of Terror and found it within 15 minutes. (Remember, we had a 2 year old with us to entertain along the way). After leaving Checkpoint Charlie, we used our son's i-pad gps system to find our hotel and the nearby parking garage to get our car. Imagine our surprise to learn that we were approximately 200 yards from the garage! We had walked a full circle. Needless to say, we were expecting to drive to the zoo, but chose to hop on the train at the hotel instead. It cost us 9 euro for the 4 us us to go one-way to the zoo. Upon our return, we jumped in the car and drove to Frankfurt at 9 pm. Great fun, great stay. (The only negative about the hotel is that it appears they hung the bathroom door backwards; one cannot see out of the bathroom because the door is mirrored, however, everyone can see in to the bathroom with the door c Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

VERY NEAR TO THE MUSEUM AND OTHER INTERESTING PLACES IN BERLIN 100 MTS TO SUBWAY A BUS BERLIN IS VERY EASY TO TRANPORT IN PUBLIC SISTEMGenuine Expedia guest review
Soap/Shampoo was in push bottles attached to the wall and the climate control did not really work. It's controlled by the TV and even at its max setting, it was still very cold in the room. Otherwise, the hotel was great: nice location (really close to Potsdamer Platz), clean, decent service, had empty fridge that we could stock with things from the […] nearby grocery store, spacious safe, and nice nature theme.

This was our 3rd time in Berlin and this hotel by far is the BEST hotel we stayed at! The staff was extremely polite and helpful. The hotel was decorated nicely and is EXTREMELY clean! The rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and very cozy. The bed was very comfortable which could be hard to find in standard German hotels. The location is ideal. […] About a 5 min walk away from the Arkaden, Sony Center and Legoland. And about 1 mile from the Brandenburg Gate. Their breakfast was DELICIOUS and worth a lot more than the 9 euro they charge. The food was always fresh and presented very well. I will most definitely stay here again during our next visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place to stay"
Would stay there again. Great location as close to centre of Berlin with metro right next door. Only thing they could improve on is access to English speaking TV for when you want to blob out as there are only news channels. Otherwise hard to fault in our short time there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this hotel at the last minute, for a very reasonable price, I was surprised how central it was, just a 5 minute walk from the Brandenburg Gate. The hotel is quite modern it has a green/eco theme to it that sort of works with good re-cycling points. The room was excellent with a good size bed and very smart bathroom. Breakfast was extra and […] quite expensive, there is a small usable gym thats ok and a tiny sauna. Next door is a massive spa and gym that you can use all day for an extra 15 euros, I spent the early morning and evening here and is well worth the money if you have nothing else planned.

Nice hotel but one thing that needs addressing is the housekeeping staff. I was not impressed when one walked right into my room at 9.30am to clean without knocking first - breakfast doesn't even finish till 10am - wait until breakfast is over and people leave for the day and knock before entering.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfy stay, fit for purpose."
We had a great time in Berlin and the hotel was really nice and well decorated. However, the restaurant bar was extremely expensive and the advertising is misleading. The hotel suggests that they have pool and spa facilities included, however on arrival we found that it was an extra cost of 15 euro a day which was really disappointing. On closer look […] it does mention this, but it needs to be made much clearer before booking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is at walking distance from most of the interesting sites, from the famous Potsdamer Platz and many public transport locations. The breakfast (additional charge in our case) was extremely good with all you can think of as breakfast!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great gem!"
Really enjoyed our stay. We upgraded our room to a Superior room for just a little bit extra which allowed us access to the mini bar. Super comfortable beds. Very new and modern decor. Spacious, clean and pretty. Loved that the hotel is trying to be eco-friendly. Fantastic location - very close to Potsdamer Platz/Sony Centre and there is a subway just […] next door. Very friendly welcoming staff. Would definitely stay here again or another Scandic hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Scandic in Berlin- right in the center"
Scandic Berlin is nice experience. Try to book with breakfast though, even if the breakfast is nice- €20 is to much. I miss moviechannels on the tv, stayed for 4 nights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"functional, clean, modern.. great for business"
Location is near Potsdamer Platz and is generally fine, some could see it as a little out of the way but in reality its very easy to travel to and from and walking was no problem from here. Hotel itself was clean and modern but arriving on Sunday found the queues at the checkin desk unbarable - 20mins long!!! not enough staff i would say. Overall […] great value hotel with modern functional fitout. Would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel and service"
Altho' situated in the commercial area this fairly new is ideally situated for a tourist. It is near all modes of transport so getting around is very easy. If breakfst is not included would suggest a 2 minute stroll to a very nice eating place. The reason being that breakfast is quite expensive but does afford a good choiceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Scandic Berlin - Potsdamer Platz"
Scandinavian minimalist hotel very close to the centre of Berlin. At Sept 2011 it had only been open 12 months and still in very good condition. We had the basic room but it was very well presented. Easy walking distance to checkpoint Charlie, the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate. Perfect for a short city breakGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location, cleanliness, service was great. Supermarkets, shopping mall, train stations were within 2-4 mins walk. BUT the one way mirrored door to the bathroom/toilet is strange. You cannot see outside the toilet , but people you share the room with can see you In the toilet. Nearly zero privacy if you are sharing the room. No toiletries in bathroom […] except for bodywash lotion and soap dispenser near basin. But Lidl, Aldi, Kaiser supermarkets on virtually on the doorstep. Beds made every day, but linen not changed. My room had a small fridge, an iron and ironing board and a safe. I would stay here again if I was travelling alone. If they sorted out the crazy one way mirror toilet door, it would be 5* +.

Stayed 3 nights at the Scandic as part of a long weekend for the Berlin Marathon.

"Scandic Berlin Potsdammer Platz"
New hotel, very comfortable. Restaurant very expensive for breakfast. Good restaurants nearby within easy walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel location is good and hotel is clean. If you like a hotel that doesnt have a working bathroom door and no privacy - then this one is for you... The sliding bathroom door in our room permenently slid open and there was no way of holding it shut. Despite multiple requests for it to be fixed, nothing was done, there was no offer of a room change […] and frankly the day staff on reception didn't care. The gym had an "electricity" problem most of the time which meant you couldnt use it. Again Reception didnt really care and despite saying they would investigate what our other options for exercise were, did nothing at all to follow up. Our room cards had at least a daily issue with them which meant constantly visiting Reception to have new cards - very frustating when you are asked for ID which is locked in the room you can't access... If you don't have an all inclusive rate then be careful as breakfast is very expensive. I picked the hotel based on others ratings so I am hoping that this is an isolated incident but I wouldn't recommend staying there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Scandic Hotel Berlin"
Very nice hotel with great staff. Very quiet room and a good size.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was superb in every way. The location could hardly be bettered, 2 minutes walk from the S Bahn, U Bahn and a shopping and entertainment complex. It is also within walking distance of loads of visitor attractions. The hotel was very clean and smart. The rooms had a small fridge, which was very handy. The only downside to the rooms, as mentioned […] before, was the very strange door to the bathroom, which was mirrored and transparent when the light was on. The staff were polite and friendly, apart from the bar staff who sometime seemed a little reluctant to serve. I can't comment on the food as I didn't eat there. The price I paid with Expedia for this hotel was an absolute bargain. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is hotel is lovely. I stayed there for three nights with my friend. The bedroom is spotless. The staff were very welcoming and were happy to help us with our queries. The hotel is opposite the Postdam Arkaden (shopping centre). Would stay there again! Located right beside the underground station Mondelssohm Bartholdy Park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only downside to the whole trip was the airport taxi driver having no idea where the hotel was despite providing the zip code and street name. Fortunately I had noted the hotel's reasonably close proximity to the Gemeldegalerie, which fortunately the driver knew. After finding the hotel myself, the whole stay and hotel experience was great. The […] room was extremely clean, the bed was firm and comfortable and the shower powerful. There is a soft piping of birds singing through the corridors. The reception staff were very friendly and efficient too. I never ate at the hotel so I can't comment on the food facilities. It is very well placed for galeries though. For those who prefer modern art - there is the Neue Nationalgalerie, less than 5 minutes walk away, and then the Renaissance art is just a further minutes walk at the Gemeldegalerie. Aside from the galeries you are just a minute away from the Potsdamer Platz and a short walk from the Sony Centre. The whole area is extremely clean, the people very friendly and the general architecture of the area constantly surprising. I shall be planning a return trip in the nogt too distant future.

The Scandic Berlin Potsdamer Platz is really clean with modern furnishings which reminds you of Ikea ! The staff are friendly and helpful.

"great city break in Berlin"
Lovely hotel and staff, only thing we were not too happy with was there is no dressing-table mirror and the hairdryer is in the bathroom so two people couln't get ready at the same time.. The bathroom door is a sliding door and not a snug fit so privacy is reduced, there is a glass panel between the bath and bedroom so light shows in the bedroom if […] the bathroom light is put on at night and the only toiletries were 2 squeezy bottles of soap attached to the wall which ran out and we had to ask for replacements.. not great when half way through a shower!... Overall though the room was light, airy and comfortable.. Location is great with a train station right next door...we would definately stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Scandic Berlin, Stylish and convenient"
Good: Very classy decor and very comfy beds. Next door to U-Bahn. Very central. LIDL behind hotel for cheap food! Bad: Room not ready on arrival at 3pm, cafes not next door so no vibe, given room furthest from lifts with view over old flats, no coffee or tea in room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was conviniently located to restaurants and bars, and just a short walk from the Brandenburg gate. The room was very clean, and the staff were very friendly. The S-bahn station underneath the hotel was very convinient for getting about Berlin, and from inside the hotel you wouldn't know it was there. A very comfortable and enjoyable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful holiday in Berlin and the hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful. The only slight niggle I had was that it would have been nice to have tea / coffee making facilities in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Scandic Hotel at the Potsdammer Platz is excellent; it is so central for so much of Berlin's amazing history. There is an underground station next door to the hotel, too, so that just adds to the convenience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel at a top location"
The rooms are spacy and very comfy. The Mendelssonhn-Bartholdy Park metro station is right beside the hotel, still the windows have very good isolation. No minibar just a small fridge. An ironing table and an iron in every room. Very ironic. Check-in starts at 3 pm. Check-out till 12 am. Overall - very good price for a great hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location for tourists"
Lovely hotel - very quiet and such comfy beds. I have never stayed at a Scandic before, but would happily chose this chain again after my experience in Berlin. It is also in a great location, just a short walk from Potsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenberg Gate and the Holocaust Memorial. Good public transport links nearby too.Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautifully appointed hotel, clean, fresh and bright. Standard modern bedroom layout but with edesigned touches that made it feels spacious and that you are in a boutique hotel. The room was kept spotless during our stay and staff were polite and helpful at all times. The only drawback was the sliding door on the bathroom which did not form a seal […] so all sounds could be clearly heard. Despite that would go back and stay tonight Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Blitzsauber, aber mässiger Service"
Die Pros: Gute Lage, ruhig und blitzsauber, das Zimmer wirkte allerdings auch etwas steril; WLAN kostenfrei; die Qualität der Speisen (Frühstück) ist sehr gut. Die Cons: Achtung, versteckte Kosten, Bettensteuer und Frühstück sind nicht inklusive. Unter dem Vorwand der Ökologie (an sich lobenswert) wird an einigen Orten gespart, wo es den Komfort deutlich […] beeinträchtigt: Keine gedruckten Hotelinfos im Zimmer (Prospekte aber schon!), diese Infos gibt's nur sehr spärlich via Hotel-TV; die Temperatur des Zimmers muss man auch kompliziert über den TV einstellen (wenn man das überhaupt rauskriegt); die Frühstückstische sind nicht aufgedeckt, es gibt keine Bedienung - d.h. man läuft in der riesigen Frühstückshalle ziemlich weit von Buffet zu Buffet, bis man alles beisammen hat, Geschirr, Besteck, Essen, und dann noch selbst an der Kaffeemaschine anstehen. Auch kompliziert: Um den Lift bedienen zu können, muss man immer den Zimmerschlüssel (Key Card) vorhalten, damit man überhaupt seine Etage wählen kann - was bei vollem Lift sehr umständlich wird - man fühlt sich etwas wie in einem Hochsicherheitstrakt...
