Friendly staff, excellent location. Large and clean rooms. Not so costumer minded, that you have to pay for the second person(10 EURO per night) even if you have ordered a double room. Unecessary fee that make Scandic Berlin appear greedy. In Scandic Denmark you do not pay the extra fee. Difficult to find out about the fee when you order on booking.com. It does not make sense that you order a double room, but have to pay for the second person.
"A real treat!"
We stayed here as a treat for my 30th birthday and it really was a treat! I loved the decoration throughout the hotel - a forest scene on the ceiling of the lift, a living green wall in the dining room, the leaf pattern on the window in the bedroom etc. The king-sized bed was heaven and the bathroom was modern and spacious. We paid the 12€ for breakfast and it was the best breakfast I've had in a hotel! The french toast and vanilla sauce was delicious, the croissants flakey and buttery and the choice of muesli, breads, cheeses, cooked items etc. was overwhelming. Everything was done to a high standard, which isn't often the case with buffet breakfasts and the fact that most of it was organic was even better. The staff were friendly and helpful and it's in a great location, just between Potsdamer Platz S-bahn, U-bahn and Hauptbahnhof and Mendelssohn Bartholdy Park U-bahn. We'll definitely look to stay in a Scandic hotel again.
"New and green"
Berlin Scandic is very much like to other Scandic hotels I have visited, and with which I have been mostly satisfied. Our standard room was ok, quite large, enough for us; the only thing I wonder is the bath with shower, because for me shower without bath would be better, but perhaps in central Europe people think differently. The breakfast was good, included some German points like wet muesli, sausages etc. Also wiener schnitzel in the restaurant was good. One minus point: as we came we told that we will leave one day earlier than we had ordered. We had to say that again after four days; it was quite near that we would have paid for five days...
"Great location, clean and comfortable"
Me and a friend stayed for 6 days. So glad we did as Berlin has so much to do and see. The hotel is in perfect location. Potsdamer Platz is modern and buzzing with loads of places to eat and shop but it's also so close to lots of key sights and attractions. They can easily been done on foot but also the station is a central hub allowing quick and easy travel within Berlin and out to other places (eg Potsdam and Scachsenhausen). We had problems with noisy neighbours in next door room but the hotel responded brilliantly and moved us to a new room (an upgraded room and a free mini bar). The rooms were really clean and comfortable. The superior room had a great view but the standard rooms tend to all look in on each other so no views. Staff were excellent. We did eat in hotel. The price we got from Hotels.com was really good as well.
"Nicely designed hotel"
I spent 2 nights in Scandic Berlin for a business trip. I had a superior room on the first floor. Rooms are very modern, nicely decorated (Swedish style) and the bed was comfortable. Isolation is very good. Breakfast is served in a very large room and is fine but nothing special. Only complaint is that check-in took too much time, many people waiting and not enough receptionists. I recommend this hotel situated close to Postdamer Platz.
