“Solid choice for a business stay”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

The Dorint Sanssouci Berlin-Potsdam was my choice for a one-night business stay, and it served this purpose well.

The hotels exterior is kept clean and in a good state, but is a little dull. The area appeared relatively quiet to me, especially at night, although beeing right in the town center.

The front desk staff are friendly and helpful with a charming slight cheekyness (which typical for the area). Both, check-in and check-out went troublefree and the common business requirements (i.e. separate expense bill) are well-understood.

The rooms were clean and in a good state. Although we were upgraded during the check-in, I did not find the rooms to be anyhow special - still, anything needed is there.
My room was facing the courtyard, which is not exactly charming to look at, but VERY quiet. I found the AC to be very loud, but it can be turned off.
The bathroom was relatively big, a small box with complimentary toiletry is a nice touch. The shower head was not pointing straight down, the water was warm right away and kept the temperature well.

The restaurant seemed to be way overpriced for us (main courses starting at 19 EUR), so we went outside to a nearby russian community for dinner.

The bar was pretty crowded and small, finding seating for a larger group proved difficult. They closed at midnight, which we found to be way too early. Pricing level was okay for a hotel bar.

The breakfast buffet offers a wide choice of pretty much everything one could ever want to try. Everything was fresh and tasted very good.

Due to timing constraints I could not try out the spa.

All-in-all, the Dorint Sanssouci Berlin-Potsdam is a solid choice for a business stay, providing a good value. I would not hesitate to choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are very quiet.

I spent 3 days in this hotel. The rooms are nice and comfortable. Only regret that absence of coffee and tea machine. Reception a bit understaffed. The SPA was in the basement and offered several attractions, pool, sauna, jacuzzi, etc. The area is lovely and Potsdam wonderful, try to take a boat ride if you can, you'll discover many magnificent things... The breakfast was in a pleasant large room and very complete with even freshly baked food, nice choice of breads and also nice plates and pots. Good service. This hotel is a good choice and we had a great price for a meeting. I recommend it and will certainly go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back, away from the noise.

Rented bikes outside the hotel and took a short bike trip down to the charming town center. Very quiet, as the hotel is designed in such a way that central areas are far from the rooms. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Hope to come back.

Have stayed here a few times on business and highly recommend this hotel for business travellers. Rooms are clean and good sized, breakfast is a good selection of hot and cold and egg station. Locations is a short walk into the centre of potsdam. The two bars offer good service too.

Although outside the main 'city' of Potsdam, it's just a pleasant 10 minute walk away.
The facilities are perfectly adequate, bar, restaurant, spa, and the food is very good.
What makes the difference for me is the service, professional and courteous but friendly and warm too, which makes a difference when one is away from home on business.

If you like to explore Potsdam this is my favorite place to stay. You are close to Potsdam city around 5 minutes walk and the castles can be reached by a 10 minutes walk.
The rooms are nice and spotles clean like the whole hotel including the pool and sauna.Very good breakfast and a two nice bars.

Room Tip: Internal courtyard 2nd floor

Clean and quiet. This hotel is good for business. The rooms are big and comfortable. I found a bit difficult to get used to the pillows when sleeping but anyway finally I managed. The breakfast is above average and lunch was ok but nothing so exciting... This hotel is modern and indifferent in all aspects... the lobby... the rooms... I am not sure what... but it lucks of character and vivid personality... I could say that this hotel is actually boring, without life. I also found it a bit expensive for what it provides. It is not a bad hotel, but it could have been much better if there was a kind of emotion. Wifi internet is very expensive.

Room Tip: It does not matter all rooms look the same... you will not miss any special view.
