"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
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
"nice hotel and great location"
staff was helpful, room was clean & quiet & nice (we stayed at the 7th floor), location was great, what else? I highly recommend. :)Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel appears to be fairly new. It's in a convenient location - close to Potsdamer Platz and directly next to Mendolssehn-Bartholdy U2 station. The U2 is the line that runs to Charlottensburg and KaDeWa. If you like to walk, then it's within a half-hour walking distance to a lot of the major Berlin tourist attractions. The room was quiet, comfortable, […] and clean. The breakfast for 10 euros was an amazing value compared to other hotels I've stayed at in Germany. I would stay there again.

"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

"Excellent base to explore Berlin"
We booked 3nights at the Scandic with a recommendation from Lonely Planet and were not disappointed. The staff were very helpful, booking restaurants for us each evening. The room was a good size, spotless, and with a very comfortable bed. The minibar was free with the superior room choice. The room was fully equipped. The bathroom was excellent. The […] hotel was convenient for the U-Bahn station and within a stroll to Potsdama Platz. We chose to have breakfast which was served in a pleasant space and consisted of an excellent buffet. All on all an excellent choice. We are now looking for other hotels in the chain to plan further city breaks. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, friendly staff, recommended."
The Scandic is a very nice hotel; I have stayed here before, and this time stayed for just one night on a business trip. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful, with excellent English as you'd expect. The rooms are comfortable, with everything you'd need - the hotel is not expensive, so some little touches are missing, but for the money, […] it's great. Breakfast is served buffet style, and the selection is very wide, and there is plenty of space to find a table. Free wi-fi in the rooms works very well, and in some of the more expensive rooms, there is a complimentary mini-bar. The only improvement would be room service, if you don't feel like going to the restaurant for dinner, but I guess this is how they keep the room costs down. Very close to Potsdamer Platz, and right next to Mendelssohn-Bartholdy-Park station, so very easy to get to, and the Berlin S-bahn and U-bahn are very easy to navigate.

The hotel staff are helpful and friendly, the room was beautiful and spacious, the central location allows you to access anywhere in Berlin with ease.Genuine 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
"Great location, very clean and modern"
This hotel was very close to transit but also to seeing the sites on foot. 10 min walk to the Brandenburg Gate, Holicaust memorial and Reichstadg building. Everything at the hotel was modern and clean and appreciated the fitness facilities. The basic room was fairly small and housekeeping comes fairly early (830 ish) and sometimes didn't knock before […] entering so kept the "do not disturb" sign in the door when ever we were in the room.

"Very well located, modern hotel"
The location is great, right on the U2. The decor is interesting and modern. The breakfast buffet is fantastic, really good value. The staff all spoke English and were very helpful. The rooms are comfortable and there's not too much noise from other rooms. One weird thing is the bathroom doors, which are inexplicably designed in such a way that they […] don't close properly, so privacy is compromised slightly. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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

"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.

"Sehr tolles Hotel"
Wir sind sehr zufrieden von dem Hotel, die Angestellten dort waren sehr zuvorkommend. An einem Tag in der Woche hatten sie Angeboten über das DRK Blut zu spenden. Natürlich im Hotel, die Ärzte und auch das Hotelpersonal war echt sehr fürsorglich, so sehr, dass es mir persönlich sogar zu aufdringlich wurde, was ich aber keinesfalls als negativ bewerten […] würde. das einzige was mich und meinen Partner wirklich sehr gestört hat, war das man nicht in ruhe sein größeres Geschäft erledigen konnte. Leider hat das Hotel nur Schiebetüren die nicht wirklich schließen, was genausogut den selben Effekt hat wie eine offene Tür...leider ein Minuspunkt... Aber dennoch würde ich es weiterempfehlen und auch selbst jeder Zeit wieder Buchen. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"stromwartung, 5 Stunden keine Zimmernutzung !"
Im Prinzip ein schönes Hotel mit schönen Zimmern. Schönheitsfehler: Das Bad/WC wird mit einer "Schiebetür" verschlossen (die immer von selbst aufging) Mitreisende kommen in den Genuss alle Vorgänge im Bad/WC live mitzuerleben. Staubflocken und Krümel, auch die Oberflächen der Tische und Schränke könnte man ab und zu mal abwischen. Am Sonntag standen […] wir mit hunderten von anderen Gästen und Anreisenden in der Hotellobby, denn es gab eine Stromwartung (13:00 bis 17:00 Uhr) in denen niemand Aufzüge, Zimmer und Toiletten benutzen durfte. Dies hätte man uns mitteilen können, denn wir hatten schon am Mittwoch zuvor eingecheckt. Auf den schon bezahlten Hotelpreis wurde beim Check out eine Bettensteuer erhoben, die nachzuzahlen war. auch das wäre nett vorher zu wissen! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotellet ligger bra till för att utforska Berlin. Nära till kommunikationer och restauranger. Det är ett genomgående bra hotell. Det enda som kan vara negativt är bädden i bäddsoffan som vår dotter skulle legat i. Madrassen var så tunn att madrassbottnens fjädrar kändes genom madrassen.
