Reviewed 28 March 2013

We stayed here for 1 night in March. Check in / Out was easy. The room was clean, beds really comfy and the walk in shower amazing.
The room was furnished to a high standard and came with extras like hair dryer - face towels, slippers / ropes/ extra pillows/ matress toppers etc.
Breakfast was great, served in the white room downstairs until 1030am. We used the bar in the evening and drinks weren't that expensive.
The complimentary water in the room was sparkling but I guess this is down to personal preference.

Its centrally located, great for exploring potsdam. I was also able to take advantage of going for a run early in the morning as its close to sancoussi park. There is an underground carpark outside.
We found a great cheap resataurant located within a few mins walk. Through the Tor near the underground carpark. Restaurant Contadino.

Hotel is a 15 min walk from central station or you can jump on tram or buses which stop either end of the street.( 5 min journey) The Berlin ABC card is valid on the buses / trams here and you can buy tickets on the automated machines on the buses as well. Tram 93 will take you to Glietche Bridge.

The hotel is located at the top end of the main shopping street in the centre of Potsdam adjacent to the "Brandenburger Tor" (the Potsdam one, not to be confused with the one in Berlin), right in the old "Holländisches Viertel" (Dutch District).
The hotel is barely two years old and apart from being new it is tastefully decorated with a real quality feel, yet mainatins a cosy atmosphere. The staff are helpful and friendly and parking is in the courtyard of the rear.
Prices - given it's a 4 Star - are more than reasonable.
I can highly recommend a stay in this hotel, whether you're traveling on business or for leisure (kids under 3 stay free - which may matter to some).

Room Tip: Some rooms on the first floor have a terrace/balcony and although deprived of a real view (they look...

Really enjoyed an overnight stay at this hotel. Delightful, convivial atmosphere with none of that 'international brand feel'. Very comfortable rooms with good bathrooms. Excellent breakfast, easy parking and friendly, helpful staff. Not sure you need much more! We ate next door at the Matador and charged the bill to our rooms. Again excellent service, good food and very friendly. Potsdam is certainly worth a detour.

This is a chic, very modern hotel behind an historic facade, right next to the Brandenburg Gate, a three minute walk from the entrance to Sanssouci Park. We parked in the underground lot just across the pedestrian plaza from the hotel. We were greeted hospitably by a young man who spoke flawless English and who could not have been more helpful. This being an old building that's been radically converted, the room arrangement is a bit quirky, with some crossing over an interior courtyard to reach the elevator etc. There are not many rooms.

The room is VERY stylishly, thoughtfully furnished, with all manner of four star extras, such as slippers, robes, no-charge mineral water etc. The furnishings are high- end modern, with lovely woodwork. Storage space in closets and drawers is ample. The bathroom is large and modern, with a full array of products that is larger than is typical. The air conditioning system was very efficient, and it was a good thing, as the weather was hot during our stay. Free wifi operated very well.

Breakfast in the all- white breakfast room is a delight, inviting one to linger over the newspapers and look out to the goings- on outside. There was a very full range of dishes available, with the usual cheeses and meats, breads, yogurts, and cereals as well as crepes stuffed with wild berries, mini cheesecakes, and scruptious poppy seed cakes. Combined with friendly and efficient service, who could ask for anything more?

We stayed at this hotel after an eighteen day trip through Germany, and this was one of the best hotel stays we had. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room in the newer section, through the courtyard.

This is a brilliant hotel with excellent service, central location, triple glass windows, and tasteful and comfortable rooms. Just 10 minutes walk from Sanssouci. Really a nice stopover place on the way to Berlin.
