When I visited in Berlin, I stayed in a Hotel Scandic Potsdamer Platz.
A big moose was guarding the main entrance, bringing the Scandinavian feel to the guest right from the beginning.
The room I got was ok size for a short visit and it was having big windows, from the floor to the ceiling. The window offered a nice view outside, though there was not much to see except buildings.
In-between the bathroom and the bedroom there was an exceptional glass window decorated with Scandinavian birch leaves. The window was right next to your bathtub, but you could not see outside clearly.
What I loved the most about this hotel, in addition to its central location in Berlin, near the public transport, were the mornings. The morning buffet was one the best I’ve ever had – There were plenty of options for people eating gluten-free and organic food.
Nice interior detail was the clock in the restaurant, which was actually a tv showing videoart of time passing by. What a lovely idea to have art in the morning together with your lovely breakfast.
The restaurants in Hotel Scandic Potsdamer Platz were neat and clean and simply elegant in a Scandinavian way. Coming from Finland, it all felt familiar to me. Over all I had nothing to complain during my stay in this hotel, so if you’re after a nice hotel experience in Berlin, this is one option.
