It was almost perfect. The only disadvantage was that it was not quite centrally situated, but the location was quite nice anyway.
Fantastic facilities Loved the style of the interior Very clean bathroom and kitchen Nice staff

A great Guesthouse which is conveniently situated
I like this Guest House very much, just the parking can be a bit tricky. We got lucky at the beginning but then had to park in a side road which wasn’t always so easy.
Lovely room (we have stayed here before) although the spiral staircase down to the kitchen and bathroom has a narrow tread so tricky for my large feet. Location is great, a short walk to the Dutch quarter. Warm rooms with individual style.

No kettle in the room!
Nice atmosphere, large room. tastefully decorated. Complimentary wine and water, tea and coffee.

Highly recommended accommodation
Critique on a very high level: The bed linen and quilt (too heavy) and pillows
The bathroom, four-poster bed + super matress, Netflix, balcony, carpets

Apartment was spacious, decorated in a wonderful period style and had a quirky spiral staircase down to the bathroom and kitchen, all well appointed. Not too far from the town center and a bakery close by for breakfast.

Stay in a castle
No any unpleasant feeling at all.
Really a unique stay - Villa Fritz gives you experience of living in a castle. All the up-to-date comfort offered by standard high-star hotels is provided, of course, but you get something more - feeling of a tradition and history. Moreover, the staff is extraordinary friendly and helpful.

Great place to stay - comfortable and spacious
Only a few minor niggles.. Apartment Fritz has a 'Kamin' which to me means 'woodburner' in English but in reality it was an electric coal-effect fire so rather disappointing. When showering over the bath the panel screen was way too small so water goes all over the floor and then runs under the door into the kitchen area and can be slippery. The dishwasher was noisy when we set it off just before we went to bed and went on for over an hour and a half making various noises and of course there is no door between the kitchen and the main bedroom, just the staircase (which was very slightly wobbly and which I almost fell down on the first night). As mentioned in the 'good' section, there were just two rings and no oven. Manageable but not ideal. There were enough glasses, plates, cups etc. There was an all-in-one kettle, coffee maker and toaster but we could only get the toaster to work if we held the button down the whole time; this was not the end of the world but a bit annoying! As mentioned above, these are minor niggles and I would gladly book the same apartment again.
The decoration of this room (Apartment Fritz) made it stand out compared to bland hotel rooms and the whole apartment was very spacious. The large bed was really comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped (although with no oven and only two hob rings we couldn't cook everything we might have wanted to). We didn't use the second pull-down bed so no idea how that was. The television in the main bedroom was of good quality and there was also a small TV in the dining area. The wifi functioned well. The main bedroom (actually on the ground floor) had shutters to keep out the light although the downstairs kitchen/bathroom/second bed did not have shutters so light might have been a problem. The soundproofing in the room was good with the windows closed - a good thing as the trams run directly outside. There was free parking outside the Guest House and in the surrounding roads. We used the tram once we got there - number 93 went from directly outside the apartment to the Potsdam Hauptbahnhof and was ideal. We had a lovely walk in the park and then to the Glienicke Bridge but apart from that didn't explore the local area much, we went into Berlin. We did have an excellent Italian meal at Cappuccino in the Dutch Quarter though! We found the apartment very good value for money and had a comfortable and relaxing stay.

A period piece (1805) stay
They are probably not allowed a proper sign, so the Villa Fritz exists pretty much incognito. I had previously located it precisely on a map, but even so overshot by a few metres. Also please note their comment that "guests staying more than four nights can have their room cleaned": In other words,for shorter stays you are left to your own devices - make your own bed. And, of course, no breakfast, so go lakeside to the marina, where you can start the day at a prima location.
Villa Fritz was built in 1805 and dedicated to the memory of Der Alte Fritz (Frederick the Great), whose famous portrait is reverently laid out in a huge book in the entrance hall. Our room had a high ceiling, with a massive chandelier delicately poised to unman me. We slept with history. 10 minutes walk from either lakeside or olde towne eating: and 20 minutes from the Glienecke bridge, where cold war spies were exchanged. Sans Souci, Cecilienhof (1945 peace conference), and spectacular old town also nearby, so lots to see.

Beautiful and spacious
Minor niggles: awkward parking, spiral staircase wobbles and too many flies in the ground floor area.
Very spacious accommodation, with big bathroom and well-equipped kitchen. Nicely furnished and decorated throughout. Friendly staff.
