Ok, the hotel is well situated for a tout in Berlin. However during this cold season, a boiler in the room to make hot coffee or tea would have been of good use to us. The room was small with only one chair for two people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really good location! With a rail stop right next to the hotel and lots of shopping just across the street you can't beat the location. The room was clean although a bit small for three people and not very private. The bathroom shower has a glass frosted window that lets light in from the living/bed area. I was able to hang a blanket to cover it. The […] breakfast was pretty good for the money and the food in the Hotel restaurant was surprisingly good as well. Lots of restaurants within walking distance as well as a great Holiday market! Berlin has so much history and the rail system is very user friendly. I have never used public transportation and was able to figure it out easily. There are a lot of tours available showing the main sights of Berlin, we took a walking tour of Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Wall, Historical Museums, and the Brandenburg Gate. A great tour with a lot of walking. This was my families first time to Germany / Berlin and we all had an incredible time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel in a nice part of Berlin."
We had a great stay. The hotel was located in a quiet part of Berlin yet walking distance to many important sites.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing hotel with the Potsdam Platz right there"
This hotel was AMAZING. The two double beds (or one queen sized beds) were super comfy and big enough for even a third person! The windows had curtains that blocked out the sun and insulated the room. Free wifi that worked great, free safety deposit box in the room (big enough for a laptop), free shampoo and free body wash- and they even held our luggage […] after we checked out! Location was great-right next to the Potsdam platz AND right around the corner was the U2 bahn, so super easy access! The Brandenburg gate was just a 20min walk, and Bundestag was just a 25min walk away. The staff was awesome as well! They were so helpful with any question we had regarding transportation, popular attractions, and directions for getting places. The stay in Berlin was so great and the hotel was a VERY nice addition-would definitely love to go back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, stylish, comfortable, a bit out of the way."
I can highly recommend the hotel itself, which is immaculate, comfortable, excellent in terms of front desk and food service, and highly affordable for the quality. The only minor complaint concerns the location. There is relatively little to do in the immediate area apart from right in the Potsdamer Platz itself, which isn't going to be everyone's […] cup of tea. You can, of course, use the Platz as a convenient transit hub and get anywhere in the city quickly, but you'll find yourself tiring of the half-kilometre walk between the hotel and the square, which you'll make many times in the course of a stay. In every other respect, though--safety, for example--the location is excellent, and in terms of quality and price, it's hard to imagine a better deal in Berlin.

"Scandic Potsdamer Platz"
Excellent hotel. Truly a unique experience with rainforest ambiance in the elevator, sensor controlled hallway lights and music, and very cool room decor. My room was so comfortable I didn't want to leave! All hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Located directly next to a metro stop (Mendolssohn-Bartholdy Park), but just make sure you exit to the […] right out of the station (to the left is a long walk all the way around). Area outside hotel is quiet and serene, with a park directly outside. Within walking distance to Potsdamer Platz (with tons of restaurants, Sony Center and a mall) and the Brandenberg Gate, Tiergarten, and Holocaust Memorial. Free bottle of water, a mini fridge, and a recycling bin in the room. Great stay, I highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location to many historical sites in Berlin. The hotel food is delicious, especially the breakfast and BBQ dinner on Monday nights. Great cocktails, especially The Rusty Nail and Scandic Passion! Train station for U & S lines are in the same building.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice touches that made the hotel different. There was a refrigerator, the window opened, good lighting, including a magnifying mirror in the bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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

"Berlin - city break weekend"
Bedroom was spotless and beds were really comfortable. Temperature in room easy to regulate. Breakfast was well worth the money of €9. Staff were friendly and helpful. Small fridge where you could cool drinks which was great to have. Hotel was really central to just about everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff and quality of the hotel was very good. Great location to access all of the attractions (stores, theaters, museums, etc.). I will definitely return in the future and refer others to stay there as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A well situated hotel providing a comfortable stay"
All fine - surrounded by boring architecture but it is well located for tourists sites. Hotel clean and sharp looking - like an IKEA showroom ! breakfast display was very impressive and could not have been bettered with its comprehensive range of options. Biggest problem was the receptionist didn't ask which airport we were going to and so directed […] us to the wrong airport which was blooming mikes away. Suffice to say by the time we corrected our mistake, time was then very tight and we missed our plane! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient, clean, quiet"
Hotel is great value for money, excellent service, excellent room, no issues with the wifi. It's right next to the train station (though the area is under construction and Google maps leads you to the back door not the front). Would stay here again for business.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"'Jolly boys' long weekend stay in Berlin."
Good standard of a hotel that is within walking distance of all the major attractions Berlin has to offer, with the added bonus of the underground adjacent to the hotel. This made the transfer between the hotel and the airport easy, as you can catch the regional train RE7 or RB14 from Schonefeld airport to Alexander Platz then the U2 underground to […] Mendelssohn-Bartholdy-Park next to the hotel in less than an hour. For our group of 5 couples on a 3 night break this hotel was ideal and very reasonably priced. The breakfast was extra with our rate, at 9 euro each per day but well worth it with lots of choice. All in all i could not fault this hotel and would highly recommend it if in Berlin on Business or pleasure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The design was clean, simple and modern. The hotel staff are polite and they speak good English. Good location. The room was clean and tidy. The breakfast place and the bar were both nice. However, they said we hadn't prepaid for our breakfast though we did. Fortunately the problem was solved by the staff with good manner. The stay would be even nicer […] if they had a better air-conditioning system. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very new & clean"
Really nice & clean hotel. Only criticism is that although it's in a central location, the area is a few metro stops from the lively parts of Berlin. Still very good and would be perfect for a business trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect for sightseeing holiday"
Right next to the underground and within walking distance of Potsdamer Platz. Good size room and bathroom. The décor is very modern which we liked - especially the sound effects of the art work as you walk down the corridors to your room. The restaurant and bar were great and reasonable price for dinner. All the staff were very friendly, efficient and […] helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"New years break"
Went for 4 day trip over new year. Great location just up from Potzdammer Platz. Very comfortable and great value for the money. My only minor gripe was that there was no coffee or tea making facilities in the room but this said it did not detract for very comfortable stay. Would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Scandic Potsdamer Platz December 2014"
Hotel and location very good. Potsdamer Platz easy walking distance. Very good Christmas Market right there. Dinner quality very good. Hot breakfast disappointing. Scrambled eggs were solid, bacon greasy, tomatoes soggy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, modern hotel, well located for U-Bahn."
This is a modern hotel, with friendly staff. Rooms and bathrooms are modern. Liked the free Wifi in the rooms. My room rate didn't include breakfast, but I think the 9EUR for the buffet was pretty good. It was a huge buffet and set me up for the day. At the time I was there, Berlin was really cold and the room struggled. I don't think the hotel has […] traditional 'heating' and I did feel cold when I came in at night. Ended up asking for extra duvet. The hotel is 1mins walk to the U-Bahn and very convenient. I would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Super week in Berlin"
I would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of a stay in Berlin. It's really good value and in a central location - there's even a station right under the hotel! We found getting around by public transport simple and quick and managed to see what we wanted in four days. The Wall Museum is a must. The only thing that we thought could be made clearer […] is that you have to adjust the temperature of the room on the TV, that took us a while to figure out! The breakfast is excellent value; at the price we were expecting a continental one but there is a wonderful buffet with something for everyone. All in all, a good place to rest our weary heads each night!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely hotel in a great location."
Loved this hotel, great location with a great shopping centre over the road. So easy to get around Berlin with the underground/train station 1 minute down the road. The hotel itself was very clean, helpful staff and loved the seasoned themes around the hotels and the chirpy bird noises in the lift/corridors was cute! We didn't pay for B&B but had breakfast […] at the hotel both mornings all you can eat for €9 was amazing; hot & cold buffet including coffee and juices so much choice for everyone. Definitely would recommend for anyone, went as a big family with two rooms and the young children loved it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Scandic Hotels is a great value!"
Short trip with family to view the sights in Berlin. My overall view of the hotel was excellent with only 1 concern. The hotel was located in a nice area with shopping, dining and tourist attractions close by. The train station was co-located with the hotel which made getting around a breeze. The breakfast buffet was excellent with great selection and […] quality...well worth the extra 9 euros per person. I think it may be cheaper if purchased at time of booking. The only issue found was with the dinner buffet. It was over priced for the quality and selection. 24 euros for 1 meat selection and 3-4 side...still all u can eat. The appetizer and salad bar were very well prepared and tasted good. Staff was helpful and pleasant to deal with. Would definitely make this my number 1 choice when I return to Berlin.

"Lovely modern hotel. Great central location."
Stayed for two nights leisure. The hotel is modern (must be about 2 years old?), and very well located. It is a two minute walk to Potsdammer Pl and has a Ubahn station right next door.

"Convenient for all central sites"
Very convenient for restaurants shops and cinema at Potsdamer Platz, from where you can get pretty much anywhere (including the airport - about 40 mins) by public transport.
