Rather average business hotel. The rooms are good, clean and adequate for a few nights. Bathroom is of good size and as hot as the shower gets as cold the tiles you walk on are. I didn't find any slippers in the room so cold feet in the morning were free of charge. WiFi also FOC in all rooms. The hotel has no fitness room which is odd considering that they label the hotel as a seminar venue. Staff was friendly upon check-in/out but the suggestion to run around the lake to get some exercise was a bit strange as we had 5 degrees and constant drizzle. The location was key to book this hotel and if you are on business it's ok. But the lack of personal touch, a fitness venue and the view towards the nearby railway station would make this hotel not my first choice for a private or leisure visit.

Sehr geehrter Gast,

vielen Dank für Ihre Anmerkungen. Unser Haus verfügt leider nicht über einen eigenen Fitnessbereich, aber es gibt zwei externe Studios in Gehweite. Viele unserer Gäste fragen auch im Winter nach einer schönen Strecke zum Joggen oder Spazierengehen, deshalb war der Vorschlag der Rezeption durchaus korrekt. Wir würden uns freuen, Sie auch in der warmen Jahreszeit wieder einmal hier begrüßen zu dürfen. Dann können Sie warme Temperaturen und unsere herrliche Seeterrasse genießen.

Bis dahin verbleiben wir mit freundlichen Grüßen,
das avendi-Team

Nothing fancy, but functional and well located next to the university and the station.
Spacious restaurant with beautiful view of the lake, also from the bar.
Good rooms, but small TV. Rock hard beds, ouch.
Whoever invented and also whoever decided for the electronic key system deserves a slap on the wrist - four (4) step to get in the door? Over-engineered and under-pleasant user experience.

Room tip: Lake view preferable, but neighborhood anyway very quiet

This hotel was recently the venue of a conference that we organised. And indeed, we were very satisfied how the hotel handled all this. The service was very friendly and professional and they handled things very smoothly. The food was good, prices moderate. The location is also very convenient: Located directly next to the S-train station Griebnitzsee of Berlin's S-train system, it can be reached from Zoo Station within 25 minutes. At the same time, the setting has a quiet Brandenburg-esque rural flavour, and the view over the lake is charming.

Recently stayed at this hotel in order to visit Potsdam. It was a short 2 stop local train stop away. The hotel is located steps away from the train station, in a beautiful residential area and directly on the lake. It is well worth getting the hotel room with a view of the lake. You can easily see rowers, sailboats and motorboats. It is beautiful and peaceful! There is a grocery store a half a block away and an excellent Italian restaurant called Piazza Toscana (which I highly recommend) down the road.
The breakfasts at this hotel were spectacular.
We used the hop on and hop off bus to tour Potsdam and it was great!

This Hotel is on the shore of Griebnitzsee. Nice quite rooms and a huge terrace with view on the lake. Rooms are big and of the "Seminar Style". Food is somewhat old fashioned German but the overall quality is good. The Hotel rents bikes to discover the many lakes, castles, historic houses and landscaped parks around Potsdam. Nice Service and staff.

The only caveat is that there is no free WiFi in the Rooms what is strange for a hotel hosting so many business seminars.
