The room has a very Scandinavian feel to it, as you would expect from the Scandic chain of hotels and the bathroom was absolutely spotless. The shower was absolutely amazing, being very easy to control and as close to a power shower as you could get. Moving on to the bed, it was amazingly comfortable and combined with the subtle lighting in the room, I think I fell asleep instantly.
Each floor had beautiful art work displayed which gave it a relaxed Scandinavian feel, very stylish minimalistic furniture is dotted around the lobbies and foyer area.
With the hotel being a ‘Scandic’ there is a huge emphasis on it’s Scandinavian design throughout the hotel, which generally works very well apart from one aspect, the carpet design. It looks like somebody has actually spilled paint on it, everywhere you look!
One slight complaint about the Scandic is that breakfast is not included in your ‘standard’ room price, however, this can be purchased at the hotel for Eur 9 per person. The restaurant on the 3rd floor has a good range of food on the menu, is reasonably priced and can seat up to 230 people. Room Service has a delivery fee of EUR 15 which is a bit steep for Berlin.
The question is, if we were to stay in Berlin again, would we stay at the Scandic Potsdamer Platz? Yes, without hesitation. The location is a 5 minute walk from Potsdamer Platz and the hotel is very reasonably priced as well as being highly recommendable. To be honest, I absolutely loved the hotel as soon as I checked in.
In January 2015, Scandic Hotels Germany were awarded the “Golden Wheelchair” for its elaborate and comprehensive accessibility programme.
