This is a family run hotel located in an upcoming residential area within walking distance to Univ. Potsdam Griebnitzsee campus (10 mins) and Griebnitzsee train station (10 mins). If you are feeling lazy, you can take a bus from the train station. The staff is courteous, helpful, and professional. Hotel walls are decorated with interesting photos depicting history. We had a double room in the 2nd floor, and it was spacious, equipped with a TV, queen-size bed, desk, two comfy chairs (see photos). We had free wifi. However, after 10 mins of inactivity, you need to sign back in - was not an issue for us. We did not opt for breakfast. The hotel is located in a very residential area, mainly housing Univ. staff and students. There are no cafes, restaurants, or super markets near by. You need to get on the train/bus from Griebnitszee to Babelsberg (1 stop) or Potsdam (2 stops) if you are looking for these. We went site-seeing in Berlin from here by buying a day ticket (€7.70), which is valid on all public transport (train, bus, tram, 24 hr). We got on random trains, trams, and buses in Berlin and visited main touristy places. Overall the hotel is great (quiet, professional staff, excellent rooms) though, the location, being a residential area, is disadvantageous for tourists. For artists, writers, and people who need a quiet environment, this might be an excellent choice.

Room tip: Get upper floors + double room, there's isn't much of a scenery

Let's start with the positives: the room was very nice and it was in a peaceful location. The breakfast was very good and the service was pretty okay. However, it is a fair hike from the S-Bahn station and walking from the station would take about 15 minutes, so unless you have a car, be prepared for that walk. There was no internet when I was there - the manager claimed that the internet went down on a public holiday and they couldn't get it resolved then (huh? This is Germany, aren't you supposed to be efficient?). The staff spoke English very well (well I speak German... but heard her speaking English with the other guests). The building itself however, is quite old. I could hear the other guests walk along the corridor, talking, doors closing - I was lucky as I slept okay. I saw the other guests during breakfast and they looked like older people who were unlikely to come back late at night, making a lot of noise, disturbing others. But that's what I dislike about older buildings in general - sound insulation is usually poor and you are dependent on other guests being considerate. But all in all, it was okay. I would have given it a higher rating if not for the lack of internet when I was there. I'd probably stay there again (I have work nearby) but that's the choice of my company, not mine. But it was okay enough really, apart from the internet woes.

Room tip: Top floor rooms are best.

I stayed in Anno 1900 for almost a week in Spring 2012. It was peaceful. The room was clean. The price was good. The property was attractive. In terms of services, however, Anno 1900 is not really a hotel, but somewhere between a hotel and a B&B. The desk was rarely staffed. There was NO INTERNET connectivity AT ALL. My room was very small, with a single bed, no clock, and no stand for my suitcase. It did have a closet. Breakfast was served in a nice breakfast building outside the main building. Breakfast was adequate: bread basket, fresh fruit, fruit salad, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, assorted meats and cheeses. For almost no money the innkeeper could at least provide alarm clocks in the rooms, and maybe folding stands for suitcases. I needed to get up for meetings at the University. Jetlag made it risky that I would wake up on my own. An alarm clock would have helped! It's actually a simple, peaceful, okay place. The price is right. For travelers with any business to do, however, the lack of *any* internet connection is a killer: no wired, no wireless, nothing. I guess that's one way they keep their prices pretty low, but I'd have happily paid another 10 Euro a night to have an *option* to connect! The walking distance to public transportation is 1km.

Room tip: Big rooms face the street; small rooms face the back. The small rooms are really very small. Single bed; desk; side table; closet; bathroom.

I spent three nights in this hotel in August 2009. The hotel is on a secondary street, south of the railway/sbahn line. It's separated from the street by a large, beautiful garden where one can sit down and relax and/or work. While it's easy to reach by car, and one park the car along the hotel driveway or on the street, the nearest bus/tram stop is a 10 minute or so walk away.

The single room I had on the first floor was really small, with little space where to put luggage and clothes. This was the most negative points for me about this hotel, as most or all of other 3* hotels I've been in Germany all had bigger rooms.

The breakfast is given is a small side building in the garden. I found it to be quite adequate, though nothing to write home about.

The lady who checked me in spoke very little english, enough to tell you what room you have and what time breakfast is available, but not for anything more elaborated (what to see in Potsdam, or how to go to some specific place, etc.)

All in all, it's a nice place if you wish to relax a couple of days away from the city and if you have a car, but a little inconvenient if you travel on business and rely on public transport. Also, the small size of the room might not be a problem for one or two nights, but soon I became to feel uncomfortable, and I would not stay there again for longer periods.
