The experience at Mercure Hotel Potsdam City could be fine if it wasn't for the terrible design of the rooms. Unfortunately, they look like someone took a normal hotel room and turned it inside out - my room was very small and I kept smashing into furniture/suitcases as I tried to move about, there were literally no shelves and nowhere to put my stuff, the few hangers provided were barely enough for one person for one night even though it was a double room, and the worst was that the bathroom is basically in the room, with the sink being by the bed and no sound insulation with the toilet at all. I am an open-minded person, but seriously, what were you thinking when designing this?
If you stay high up enough, you will at least enjoy the nice views of Potsdam. I was also happy that the hotel was calm and had good sound insulation from the corridor/elevator, which many other hotels lack.
For a four-star hotel, though, the amenities were poor, not even body lotion. However, the kettle and tea/coffee in the room was much appreciated.
The breakfast was very nice indeed - pricey, but if you get a deal when it is included in your room price, then it is certainly worth it.
Finally, the location is excellent - minutes away from the S-Bahn and about a 15-20 minute walk to all the main attractions of Potsdam.
All in all, not a place I was impressed with, but not a disaster either. I would like to try another hotel next time.
