The hotel may have a ultra modern design but traditional values should be applied to the climatic controls in the bedrooms. The room settings ( set via the TV) are unresponsive and summer must be a real problem since setting room temperature at 19 mukes the system unbearably noisy.
The decor looks like he builders have forgot to take the masking tape off the mirrors and the corridor carpets look like the painters have placed leaking paint cans along the carpet. Breakfast choice is extensive and is quickly replaced. Staff keep a clean and efficient dining room .Well one sfc team. Reception staff very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Ask about climatic contols. Rooms do not suffer from outsde noise, apart from plumbing noise from adjacent rooms=- either side and above.

Great Value, Great Location, Great Staff, Nice clean rooms. We enjoyed our stay. This not a 5 star hotel but it is well worthy of it, just for the location.
Food here was OK, but there are plently of places in this area.
Excellent underground parking at 22 euros/24hrs.

We stayed here mid April for a week & thought it was wonderful!

Rooms were ideal size, clean & comfortable (our room was internal facing, so quieter).

Breakfast was excellent - loads to choose from: hots were great from soft/hard boiled eggs to sausages, bacon, beans, scrambled eggs, to pastries, to colds including: fresh fruits to cereals to eco friendly brekkie (if you wished).
The only issue for some people, seemed to be that although there would be tables free, they would hover over one that had the remnants of the previous diner until they caught the eye of a staff member (poor show).

The bar was good, if a little laid back.

We ate at the restaurant on our third night, then a further 2 times, as it was much to our liking!
We did venture out to sample a bit of Germany, but found it had mostly gone "West" (Mexican, Indian, Chinese.. you get the drift).

Front-of-house staff at the hotel were very helpful & as per, multi-lingual.
We didn't get the chance, but the hotel also let out bikes for 4 hours FREE of charge (Berlin being so flat, it makes it fairly effortless to get around) so well done on that one folks!!

All in all, a very peaceful time in this hotel & though it does get a LOT of tour buses & business meetings, I would consider staying at another Scandic elsewhere, if this one is anything to go by.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the sleep! Also, if arriving by U-Bahn, there is one just to the side of the hotel (Mandlesohn-Bartholdy) or something like it!!

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!
