Reviewed 23 April 2014

Fair location close to attraction. Liked the 24 hours reception with inside garage for car. room and walking corridor need a bit of refurbishment. nice restaurant, very nice staff. walking to attraction vary from 15 to 45 minutes depending what part of park you go, the sanssouci castle being 45 min (about 3km)

The hotel is very close to the Sans-Souci park and palaces which is very convenient. Besides, Sans-Souci station is also nearby - you can easily commute to Berlin or Potsdam center. The hotel itself is very nice, the staff is friendly and helpful. I arrived very early in the morning and they gave me my room key right away. The breakfasts are very good. The rooms are very clean and spacious. I stayed there 2 nights and hope to be back.

We have stay before in this hotel and again we enjoy our stay. The location is very good to have a visit at the Sanssouci Park, walking distance. Also there is a train connection to the city centre of Berlin. The hotel has friendly personnel and the rooms are good. The hotel has sufficient parking space.

Room Tip: All rooms are good allocated

I stayed five nights in this hotel and was really impressed. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly when it came to travel advice and, at least at reception, their English was far better than my basic German. My room was airy and clean, with plenty of space, parking was easy and the wi-fi worked well. Breakfast consisted of the 'usual' selection of hot and cold items, with plenty of variety. Evening meals were good, if a little on the pricy side, but there is limited choice when it comes to nearby eating establishments, though I did visit a nearby beer-garden/restaurant on the Sunday evening of my stay, as the hotel only offered a snack menu on that occasion.
From my point of view, the location was great. Park Sanssouci is a walk away (be prepared or a long walk if you plan to walk around all the palaces and the town) and buses seemed regular and stopped close to the hotel. There is a railway station nearby that has direct trains for Berlin every hour, or the option of more regular trains (out and back) if you change at Potsdam Hauptbahnhof. I wouldn't hesitate to use this place again if I was to make a return visit.

We booked this hotel for two nights. We were very satisfied with the hotel and the services. The Best Western Grand City is located near by the park Sanssouci. Public transport is possible by two bus lines (directly in front of the hotel) and one S-Bahn line from station “Park Sanssouci” (200 m). Free parking places are available (if parking lots at the hotel are not available, there is additional free parking up to 150 m away only). We booked this hotel via the homepage of the Best Western Group four day ago. When we wanted to check in at night, (evening), staff at reception could not find our precharged reservation. However, staff was exceptionally friendly, hands on and immediately solved the problem. We got a very nice and comfortable room including our special requests (quiet and with hard mattresses). Check in and check out both had been professional, friendly and quick. We used the spa which was switched on for us when returning earlier on a very cold day and heated at high(er) temperature. Spa is clean, towels and slippers were provided free of charge. Unfortunately, sauna is not really pleasant (cellar, white tiles). New fitness equipment (bicycle, treadmill) was available, too. Our room was spacious and contained a fridge (no drinks/ empty minibar). The whole hotel is quite clean. Heating works well, air condition was switched off or does not work, which was not necessary at winter time when we stayed there but certainly would be an issue during summer. Breakfast was delicious offering various warm and cold dishes; service was friendly and again fulfilling all requests for coffee/ tea/ eggs in short time and at best quality. It was a very nice stay – see you soon!

Couldn’t Find Hotel Coming From The Autobahn:
Coming from the autobahn we had a hard time finding the Best Western Grand City Parkhotel. It seemed to be tucked away amidst residential housing and flats in Potsdam, Germany last summer on the first leg of a ten-day road trip of Germany and Austria. Our new European cell phone came in handy ringing the front desk and asking for directions. But alas! Once we found it after about half and hour of vain searching, the very small surface parking lot had no room left. We ended up hiding the rented Ford Mondeo in a fire lane. My husband feared it would be worth his life to try to park it in the underground parking garage with the low ceiling. Fortunately it was right outside our hotel window on the ground floor. We could keep an eye on it. No one complained.
Fortunately the inside of the hotel proved very different from the outside. It was one of only two hotels in Germany and Austria that had rooms on the ground floor. It was very convenient to access the parking lot. And the breakfast buffet was one of the nicest on the trip. As a nice touch they sold postcards at the front desk.
P.S. We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Cecilienhof. The palace was indeed close by.

Room Tip: This was one of only two hotels with rooms on the ground floor. They were very convenient to the bre...
