My room was in the new building, looks recently constructed/renovated, basic but decent size and décor, convenient and clean. Can not comment on rooms at the old building. Bathroom clean, but sparingly maintained - better leave a reminder if out of soap... No bathroom amenities expected from a 4 star hotel, only shower gel, bring your own shampoo and body lotion. Staff friendly and cooperative, surroundings quite and inviting, the lake shore view pleasant.
A little off-central location, but tram/bus station at the door, and short ride to Potsdam pedestrian strip on city center. Be aware that the tram/bus line back to the hotel is on another street, ask reception how to come back! Restaurant with limited menu at the hotel and an excellent chef run Italian restaurant next door, otherwise eating out only in the city center. Wi-Fi comes and goes, with a little skill usable. Breakfast buffet very good, check if it is included in your reservation options and not extra.. Overall good place for a business trip.
