"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
"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
"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
"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
"A good hotel"
A great stay but having booked two rooms as a family they were on different floors, well placed for seeing the main sights of Berlin and really comfortable as a hotelGenuine Hotels.com 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
"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.

"Beautiful hotel and perfect location"
I don't have a bad thing to say about this hotel. The perfect destination for a trip to Berlin and such fantastic value. The U bahn is right next door so its easy to get around. Close to shops, pubs, restaurants etcGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Well appointed rooms and excellent breakfast (worth paying for). Bike hire from the hotel also worth considering.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel with ideal location"
The hotel is close to the city centre and ideal as a base for sightseeing and entertainment. It is also very handy for public transport for those wishing to venture further afield.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well looked after"
We arrived to discover the hotel was overbooked for our first night. The lovely shift manager apologised and explained the arrangements they had made for us to stay at another nearby hotel. We had a pleasant stay in both hotels and would happily stay at Scandic Potsdamer Platz again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Poor wifi and long reception queue"
Great rooms, good value, wifi is v poor, v long queue for checkout, breakfast good but busy (it's a big hotel)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfectly situated, quiet, stylish, friendly staff"
We picked this hotel because of its proximity to the Kulturforum, in particular the Philharmonie where we were attending two concerts as part of the Musikfest, and also the Gemaldegalerie. It was right next to the U-bahn station and a short walk to Potsdamer Platz, so that made getting around very easy, as also did the fact that bikes were available […] right outside the hotel. The open-air bus tour left from Potsdamer Platz and there were some reasonable cafes and restaurants nearby. We were there for five days and packed in loads of museums, strolling by the canal on Museuminsel, visiting shops in Kurfurstendamm, cycling through the Tiergarten, eating in Kreuzberg and walking through the Grunewald. Strongly advise getting a Berlin Pass beforehand. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent choice in central Berlin"
This is an understated modern hotel with lots of nice design touches, supported by terrific service. When I returned to the room on the first evening, the fridge was warm. Within 40 minutes it was replaced; I had expected to wait for the next day. The hotel is conveniently astride an U-Bahn station, and a short walk to the huge Potsdamer Platz station, […] so connectivity is excellent. By means of U-Bahn to Zoo Station, and then airport bus, Tegel is only about 30 mintues away, off peak. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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
"Nice and cozy"
By all standards Scandic hotel is very good. It's a fresh and clean, quite cozy place to stay in Berlin. I knew that this hotel chain takes responsibility of hospitality seriously, so I was totally unaware of any downsides while living there. Staff is friendly and was always ready to help with any of my questions. The room was bright enough, many bigger […] and more expensive hotels have less lights. Bathroom was clean and had a hairdryer and dispensable shower gel, soap and shampoo plus paper tissues. Everything was in great condition if not new. The bed was my favorite - I have a very picky back, which hates most beds, but that one was a delight to sleep on. Internet was fast, though I had to log on constantly after closing my laptop or darkening the phone. Even though my beloved Potsdamer Platz is only 3-5 minutes away, the real bonus here is Mendelssohn-Bartholdy subway station is literally around the corner. Those who come for shopping - don't waste your time at Arkaden, take a train to Wittenberg Platz and rejoice at the endless Q-damm. The only disappointment was the breakfast. It was boring, lacking of tasty choice and way overpriced at 9 euros. Tea was horrible, ham and even Nürnberger sausages were eek. But be rest assured- Berlin has wonderful and amazing options for those who, like me, adores eating well. Summing the above, the hotel is highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
