The hotel has a very good located a few minutes from the Potsdam Place in the city center of Berlin. The hotel is pretty new and offers very good rooms with all amenities. The location is quit so overall it was a good experience until - yes until we got to the breakfast. Latest here you know that the hotel is booked strongly by groups (as the busses in front of the hotel remind you) and when you enter the restaurant the noise level is VERY strong. No matter when you arrive between 07:30 and 09:30h the place is so crowded that you have difficulty to find a place.
The breakfast buffet themselves is OK and offers everything what you want and its filled up quickly. BUT the real problem is that the tables will be cleaned badly. In 45 minutes nearly no service cleaned the tables and when one of the unexperienced (I think outsourced) waiters comes, they took a few things and they're gone.
The coffee pots didn't hanve handles so when filled with coffee you wasn't able to hold them? I think none of the management tried to have breakfast here?
While I was able to give a 4* rating to the hotel the breakfast situation downgrade the hotel at least by one star. Hopefully they will be able to improve this shortly.

My family and I stayed at the Scandic hotel at Potsdamer Platz from the 10th of april to the 13th. The stay was in every way excellent!
When we arrived at 10am we were able to get our rooms early, and the rooms were very homely. The breakfast the next day was terrific with a large range of different breakfast food.
What was the best thing about the hotel was it's central location. It was barely a 5 minutes walk up to Potsdamer Platz and U-bahn was just around the corner! We noticed that the U-bahn acctually went in to the building, but lucky you could not hear it at all during the nights!
My entire family were very pleased with our stay at this hotel, and I think that if we ever return to Berlin, this is the hotel that we'll stay at!

excellent is the only word to describe the hotel.

location - heart of the city, Postdamer Platz - besides railway station.
room - spacious, clean, comfortable.
toilet - really nice and beautiful
break fast - awesome
interior - too good, vibrant, luminous
service - excellent
smoking - yes
value for money.

Room Tip: Just go and tell what you want from them, they will assist you. Otherwise, mail them; if you have any specification, let them know beforehand.

My husband and I have just returned from 7 nights at the Scandic Berlin.
Hotel is in a perfect location for exploring all the main tourist attractions on foot. There is also the option of using the hotel bikes or getting the metro; there is a U Bahn station (U2) next door to the hotel.
Hotel room is a good size with comfortable beds, a fridge you can stock yourself (either from the hotels shop or from the Lidl at the back of the hotel, just cut through the metro entrance). There is handwash and shower gel provided, any other toiletries you have to supply yourself. The room also has a safe, iron and board, hairdryer and ample wardrobe space.
Reception staff were helpful. In reception there are 2 computers where you can access the internet for free.
As others have stated the breakfast can be busy and a bit hectic (especially if there is a bus trip in) but the staff work hard to keep the place clean, clear tables and ensure that the food (of which there is a huge choice) is replenished frequently. The hotel was busy when we were there but we always managed to get a table and the food we wanted was always available.
The hotel bar is modern and prices are about the same as the rest of Berlin. We ate in the restaurant 3 times (we wouldnt normally eat in our hotel, preferring to go out and about but we found it difficult to find 'nice' restaurants in Berlin) and although the menu isn't large the food was excellent.
Postdam is lovely and well worth a visit, you can get the U Bahn next to the hotel 3 stops and then get the S Bahn direct to Postdam.
We did the Fat Tyre bike tour on our first full day and would highly recommend this as it is a great fun way to learn about Berlins history and find your way about the city.
Would recommend this hotel to friends and family, and if we return to Berlin would not hesitate to stay here again.

We visited Berlin for my Birthday weekend and we stayed at the Scandic Berlin for the first time and we loved it!

We arrived at the Hotel at around 11am and we went to go to check in, they told us that the room was ready and was told beacuse it was my Birthday they had upgraded us to a superior room and they gave us a complimentary Mini Bar including alcohol and soft drinks, they also give you a map of Berlin showing where everything is.

We then went to our Room on the 7th floor, there are 8 floors in this Hotel. The lifts are really cool and they have birds tweeting in them, The Corridors are really nice and bright with loads of mirrors everywhere.

The Room was outstanding, It was very spacious with a large bathroom and the most comfortable bed ive ever slept in, It also has a large floor to ceiling window which opens with great views of Potsdamer Platz, The only negative i had about the king bed was that there was 2 duvet covers one for each person but this might be part of the scandinavian way,There is also a large desk and HD TV, The wardrobe is very large with loads of space, I have stayed in many Hotel rooms in the past and this has to be one of the best ive stayed in.

The Breakfast which is on floor 3 which was included in our room rate was also one of the best that i had seen, The Breakfast Room was huge with loads of seating, So no problem whatever time you turn up for breakfast and it is also served at a great time from 6:30-11am so great for the late risers like ourselves,There is around 10 different stations, one for hot breakfast items, one for cold meats,one for pastries,one for fruit etc and loads of stations for coffee and orange juice it is handled really well with loads of staff on hand and all the food is kept fresh and replenished.

On the same floor as the Breakfast room there is a huge bar and restaurant and a outdoor terrace which overlooks Potzdamer Platz which is great in the evening for a drink before going out or a late drink before bed.

The Hotel is in a fantastic location with Mendelssohn-Bertholdy Park U-Bahn Station right next door to the Hotel which can get you to most places in the City of Berlin and surrounding areas but if you like to walk, Potsdamer Platz is a 5-10 minute walk from the Hotel with loads of Restaurants,Bars,Sony Centre etc

So this Hotel has a very modern theme to it with great staff throughout, and has a fantastic breakfast so when we are in Berlin again we will stop here.

Room Tip: Email the Hotel prior to youre Hotel stay at the Scandic for a view overlooking Potsdamer Platz on a higher floor.
