“Good location with the Scandic Standards”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Very well situated, 5 minutes away from Potsdamer Platz, and next to another subway station with direct connection to Alexanderplatz. We spent 3 nights there for a long week-end in Berlin.

This hotel has all the sacndic standards: nothing fancy or luxurious, but clean and relatively spacious rooms. I really appreciated the fridge in the room.

But I rated only 3/5 because the breakfeast was not included (and cost 9€ extra!!!!), and as a scandic member it surprised me a lot, knwoing that breakfeast is always included in other scandic hotels in Scandinavia!

Hej dear guest,

thank you for posting a review of your stay at our hotel.

I am glad to read that you enjoyed a long weekend in Berlin and that you liked the central location as well as the Scandinavian atmosphere within the hotel.

However, I am sorry to read your disappointment regarding our breakfast. Unlike at the Scandic Hotels in Scandinavia, the breakfast is unfortunately not automatically included in all room rates at our hotel. Nevertheless, we hope that you could still enjoy the wide variety of over 100 different breakfast items.

We would be more than happy to welcome you back at our hotel during your next stay in Berlin and if you like we are pleased to offer you on your next stay a suitable rate which already includes breakfast.

Warm regards,

Steffen Seichter
Director of Sales & Marketing

An elegant, clean and cozy hotel! My room was facing to patio, so it was absolutely quiet even when I left the window open through the night ( big advantage for me if windows can be opened in the hotel!!). Room has sufficient lighting for reading as well as for make-up.
If You can, avoid having breakfast at around 8 am - breakfast room is extremely busy at that time! It was almost impossible to find the seat! Breakfast selection itself was good and delicious.
The location is good - close to underground, in safe and calm area.

Room Tip: Facing the patio, if You need absolutely quiet room (mine was 5084).

Thank you again for taking the time to write this review and we would be pleased to welcome you back in Berlin at your next business trip.

very good price for this 4 stars close to potsdamer plats (400 mt). Rooms are very basic and minimal altough functional (I would say Ikea Style). The buffet breakfast is amazing. The metro station is just next to the hotel.

As many have already covered well, this is a modern style, clean , well situated hotel, that offers spacious accommodation and good service levels at a reasonable price. I stayed here whilst attending a business conference in the hotel and for this it was ideally suited.
The very modern Scandinavian design perpetuates throughout the entire hotel with white, clean lines in all the public places and the rooms, and Scandinavian references, such as the interesting modern art Moose heads in the bar area. For an efficient business trip stay it was perfect, but to be honest, once inside you could be anywhere in the world, so if I was to return to Berlin for pleasure I think I would probably try to find somewhere with a bit more of the character of Berlin.

Hej dear guest,

thank you very much for your detailed feedback. As a Scandinavian based hotel chain we want to bring a bit of Scandinavian atmosphere and hospitality to Berlin.
However, we also strive to delight our guests with local specialties during their stay. This is why we will serve from the beginning of April onwards mainly regional and seasonal dishes in our restaurant.

We hope to welcome you back at the Scandic Berlin Potsdamer Platz on your next business trip to Berlin.

Warm regards,

Perfect location for a visit in Berlin, staff friendly and polite, room clean and well furnished, breakfast with lots of choice. We stayed in this hotel during a very cold winter week (January 2012), it was nice to have a nice room where to spend the eveningn (we got the use of the minibar for free!). Absolutely to recommend!

We stopped here in February, the hotel was great, friendly staff, great breakfast and a great location. Room was what I expect of a scandic, but more than sufficient for our needs. Right next to an U-Bahn station on the U2 line, so getting around was dead easy and its well placed for local attractions like the sony centre, the Tier Garten and Brandenburg gate. Value was very good, always look to book direct with Scandic, you get the best deal in my opinion.

Hej dear guest,

thank you very much for the positive feedback.

Luckily the location of our hotel directly at the Potsdamer Platz is really convenient to get to know the city as most of the attractions are even within walking distance.

We hope to see you back in Berlin in the future.

Had a two night staying at the Scandic Hotel for a meeting.

The hotel is big and busy and had a number of coach parties passing through during my stay. Although most of the time I didn't particularly notice this, checking in and out had a slight delay as the desk was very busy. The staff however were all helpful and friendly.

My room was large and scrupulously clean (as was the whole hotel). Everything worked, the bathroom was good and the bed comfortable. My impression when I walked into my room was that I had moved into an Ikea catalogue and this theme persists through the hotel. It isn't really a problem but the hotel is self-consciously earnest in its style and parading of green credentials.

The breakfast is tremendous with a fantastic selection of different breads and roles . The food we had for a catered dinner was adequate.

The hotel position is set back a couple of hundred meters from the Potsdamer Platz which is itself a rather busy junction surrounded by modern buildings rather than a place to visit. However, a number of sites are within walking distance of there and the immediate presence of the station is useful.

The hotel is a pleasant place to stay and does all the basics well. It also represents good value for a comfortable city center hotel.

Hej dear guest,

thank you very much for taking the time to give us such a detailed feedback.

During busy days, our Front Office Staff is doing their best to serve our guests as fast as possible. Did you know that we also offer Express Checkout possibilities? However, I am happy that you enjoyed our extensive breakfast buffet with over 100 different items. As you might have noticed, we put special emphasis on using organic and regional products and this is why we even offer honey produced by our own beehives on the hotel roof.

We hope to welcome you back again soon.
