My family stayed here for 5 nights (Tuesday to Sunday). The hotel is actually larger than the pictures portray but that is lengthways. There are 3 storeys to the property; access to all floors by stairs or lift. There are a few steps to enter the property at the front.
The location is down a cobbled side street and backs on to a school. It is close the centre of Potsdam and local attractions, such Sans Soucci palace. There's a well stocked local ReWe supermarket about 10 mins walk away too. We found it was generally very quiet at night - a decent night's sleep. We had 3 rooms: 107 is a large comfortable room with a sofa and mini bar (to pay for but reasonably priced); 117 is a small double and 205 is on the top floor, again a large room which looks a little newer than the first floor rooms. All have TVs with a range of German channels and BBC World. Free WiFi, which worked reasonably well during our stay.
The staff were really courteous and friendly. Check in was efficient. Rooms were spotless. Breakfast excellent with a large array of things to eat and drink (served from 0630 to 1030, 7 days a week). You even get a daily smoothie made up for you!. On my wife's birthday, three members of the breakfast staff wished her a happy birthday with a sweet tin/candle and two large glasses of Sekt. Attention to detail cannot be faulted.
A taxi will cost you about €65-€70 from Schonefeld airport and takes 40 mins to an hour, depending on traffic.
A highly recommended hotel.
