A former home for military families (150yrs ago), with large rooms, newly renovated, new washrooms, 2 minutes to the shopping- / town center. Great breakfast. Secured parking 1 min walking distance. Nothing bad to say against this hotel!! (no wifi, but you get a cable for free internet - bad for ipad users.)

We booked this hotel based on the TripAdvisor rating and we were not disapppointed! We arrived via car, and while there was a space outside the hotel (it is pay parking), they wanted to move the car into their reserved parking (added fee) for the night. We were dropping the car at a rental location, so we just paid for...

Am Grossen Weissenhaus has an excellent location, in a quiet side street two minutes off the pedestrian streets and Potsdam's nice restaurants, 10-15 minutes from the wonderful and incredibly large Sanssouci Park and, by tram and S-Bahn a very comfortable 1 hour away from Berlin's attraction and life scene. The rooms are elegantly and comfortably furnished, with all necessary amenities,...

a GPS is helpful in finding this location. However, having said that, it is only a 5 minute walk from downtown pedestrian zone (shopping [not a wide selection] and restaurants), and a 20 minute walk to Park Sanssouci. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood, and appears to be relatively safe. Make sure you drop off your bags at...

The hotel is located near the pedestrian area and all main attractions are within 1,5km. Anyhow,since Potsdam is quite small, it applies to 90 % of the city hotels. The hotel building is attractive and rooms are very big. Breakfast was decent bit with a very bad service: very few tables, we had wait for other people to end, self-service...

A recently renovated 18th century building in the old town, formerly the hospital wing of a military orphange. Beautifully restored. Tastefully decorated, if rather austere. Within easy walking distance of Potsdam's major sights. Our room was very spacious, quiet and clean, and the bed very comfortable. A large TV, a writing desk and a comfortable sofa, limited hanging space and...

First of all the Hotel used to be an orphanage in the olden days. So that's where they got their name from.Its' a beautiful old buidling nicely restored.I had called to make reservations and told them that the smallest room they have looked very small on their website, but they assured me it would be big enough. It was ok,...

We stayed here at the end of a trip through Eastern Germany and were extremely impressed. It exceeded our expectations. The room was large, comfortable and clean, the service was excellent , the breakfast buffet plentiful (a self serve cappuccino machine !) and the location was top. We would go back to Potsdam just to stay in this hotel!

This newly renovated hotel provides high quality accommodation at a moderate price. The rooms are spacious and well appointed; the staff are welcoming and professional and the breakfasts are generous, extensive and offer variety for all tastes. We happily recommend this hotel for its comfort and convenient location in easy walking distance to the interesting sites in this beautiful city....
