FAQs about hotels in Potsdam






The Glory of Kings and Kaisers

Potsdam holds a pivotal place in German history. The country’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site – Park Sanssouci – stands testament to the wealth of the kings and kaisers who once held court there. Yellow Sanssouci Palace is somewhat overshadowed by stepped gardens leading up to it from a fountain. A long path leads off at a right angle to the red-coloured New Palace, adorned with statues and a green dome.

Nestled in the intermediate grounds are the Italianate Roman Baths and Orangery, and understated Charlottenhof Palace. Trees hide the botanical gardens, while the gaudy gold Chinese tea house is unmissable. The park even has a grand train station and Dutch-style windmill.

Red gabled houses line the Dutch Quarter, and wooden houses characterise the Russian colony Alexandrowka. One of the city Christmas markets is in Weberviertel amid former homes of Bohemian weavers. Nearby, Filmpark Babelsberg is the world’s oldest film studio and Babelsberg Palace was a royal summer retreat.

In the New Garden by 2 of the city’s many lakes is half-timbered Cecilienhof Palace, where the historic, post-war conference between Churchill, Truman and Stalin led to the Potsdam Agreement and Declaration which shaped the face of Europe.

Booking.com’s Potsdam accommodation includes hotels near the Brandenburg Gate, old town guest houses and city centre apartments.

    A very walkable city with good transport links to Berlin ( a S- bahn train every 10 mins). Park SansSouci was worth seeing,. Lots of nice restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries everywhere. Easy day trip from Berlin although an overnight stay would allow more time for a relaxed stay and to take in all the attractions.

    Before I list the pros & cons, it is important to note that this review does not reflect Germany as a whole or other cities in Germany. I have not met Germans from other major cities so I simply cannot compare what I saw; however, my review is based on pure observation, and my intention is not to give a collective opinion about a specific nation. Pros: The city is very clean and organized, hospitals are all over the place, and finally the stores, restaurants, and shopping areas are great. Cons: You have to understand that this city is not for tourists at all. It is crystal clear that it's full of locals and it will be very rare to see any tourists around. The locals (who made it clear to us on several occasions are not in need of tourism), many of them see visiting tourists as a burden and not a blessing. Mid-aged to old Germans are non-English speakers, and young Germans are (it's fascinating how a full generation knows one language and the other doesn't). If you stop someone on the street to help you out, they rarely will go out of their way to do so. Germans lead private lives, it is an individualistic culture, and they get paid high wages so do not expect them to want tourists anywhere around their cities and neighborhoods. It is also clear that the majority do not care what type of impression international travelers have about their country. They see themselves self self-sufficient and that is the most polite way I can summarize my visit. I hope this review helps, good luck.

    The park is lovely to wander around, with grand palaces, beautiful gardens and art galleries to visit. The town centre and Dutch Quarter are worth visiting and also the Cecilienhof where the Potsdam Conference is definitely worth seeing.

    Lots to see and historically all very interesting with beautiful palaces. Plenty of restaurants/ cafes and shops to wander about. The centre is flat and manageable. The Potsdam bus is a good way to see it and get around. Staying in Potsdam has a more relaxing ambience than Berlin, but a day trip to Berlin and the hop on/ off bus there is within easy reach, if you research the links beforehand.

    I mostly enjoyed Sanssuci park where I spent many hours in total bliss. did not have much time to visit the rest of the city. I found out that most of the restaurants did not have menus in English and for the most part, waiters did not speak English and were unwilling to assist. One even said to me, "we don't serve tourists"! it is easy to get around but not easy to get information in languages other than German.

    Ideal for walking around.

    Ideal for walking around. I visited the central places like the Sancousi Palace and Cecilienhof Garden. My hotel was also well suited to visiting the House of the Wannsee Conference, which I went to on my last full day. This is really worth visiting.

    The staff was awesome. I am in a wheelchair and when we ended up with rooms on the side that did not have an elevator, they went out of their way to switch us to rooms that were accessible by the elevator. Breakfast was good, the rooms were clean and comfortable. Location was terrific, just a short distance from the S-bahn station. It made things very simple to get into Berlin.

    Great cozy place, big bathroom, great breakfast. We arrived after midnight and our keys with clear instructions were waiting for us in the locker so it was easy to find everything. Your room pass is valid as public transportation card in Potsdam and Berlin. Room was on the ground floor and had its own terrace surrounded by greenery.

    In many ways like stepping into another time, but at the same time having all modern necessities including being able to block out the noise from Berliner Str. when this is desirable. We have stayed in almost 10 other places in Potsdam, but this beats them all. Will definitely return to "Alte Fritz".
