The rooms in this hotel are reasonably nice and functional with a comfortable chair and nice armchair to relax in. The location is also good, a very short walk to Potzdamer Platz. However, the service level is not what you expect from a four-star hotel.

They provide soap in the shower and next to the sink but no "proper" shampoo, no conditioner and no body lotion - things most female business travellers expect. Also, there is no full-length mirror in the room - the only mirror is placed over the sink. As the sink is rather wide and large (an otherwise nice feature), it was difficult to get close enough to the mirror to put on make-up.

They had air conditioning, but it did not work very well. When the air conditioning was set to the minimum temperature of 21 degrees C, the room temperature remained at 26 degrees, which made the room rather hot and uncomfortable.

It says on the website that the hotel has a minibar in the room, but this is not true. The hotel has a small empty fridge in the room. If you want any drinks or snacks, you need to go down to reception to buy them. And they will not let you charge drinks and snacks to your room - you have to pay right away at the front desk. I found this incredibly annoying, as I now have to give my accountant lots of small receipts instead of one large for the whole stay. It also meant that I spent a lot in cash rather than charging it to my card, and as most frequent travellers know, it is more expensive to make cash withdrawals than to pay with your card.

I ordered breakfast in my room one morning. In addition to having to pay twice for my breakfast (they charged it in full instead of adding a service fee to my pre-paid breakfast) the cleaner did not remove the breakfast tray when cleaning the room. It was still there when I got back to the hotel late at night. I found this very odd, particularly since it was so hot in the room - the food looked particularly shriveled and disgusting after a whole day in 26 degrees heat.

The hotel is very modern and very comfortable. The street is surprisingly quiet given its location a few hundred meters from Potsdamer Platz. There is a metro stop a few feet from the hotel from which you access the rest of the city very easily. There is free internet access in the hotel foyer. Our only criticism is that the charge for breakfast is 20 euros per person which is extortionate so naturally we did not bother. Cafe Moehring is down the street near the shopping arcade and does a variety of breakfast far cheaper as well as meals during the day and in the evening.

The Scandic Hotel offers a very good value for money considering its very convenient location regarding Potsdamer Platz and considering the nearby competition. Cleanliness: impeccable, room size: quite big...I definitely recommend this hotel...
One criticism though: the modern uncluttered style decor is much too white ! Feels like a hospital and it does not create a friendly atmosphere at all...

I stayed in this Hotel for a weekend with friends at the beginning of June and was very impressed, as was everyone in the group.
First time in Berlin and was unsure where to stay and delighted we stayed here.
Staff are friendly, polite, helpful, professional and extremely courteous, they had no problem checking us in early or holding onto bags after check out as we had a late flight back on Sunday night.
Hotel itself is is very impressive and worthy of its four star status. Nice bar with huge balcony on the third floor.
Rooms are well decorated, clean and modern.
Location is a little off the beaten track for bars etc but thats a slight complaint . I learnt that as Berlin is so vast you do need to get trains to places - but as it's Germany the trains are efficient and on time! so you are never waiting more than a few minutes and to be honest thats part of the fun of getting to know this great city and its people.
Great hotel, great city, I will most definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask the helpful staff - I was impressed with mine
