“Execellent hotel in great location for visiting Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2011

Stayed at Sarotti Hoefe this past weekend. This is our third time to stay at this hotel.
The location is perfect for visiting Berlin. The hotel rooms are very comfortable and extreamly clean. The bath room is well equiped. There is a mini bar and safe in the room. Also there is a iron and ironing board and umberella if required. The only negative about the hotel is that it does not have a lift to the bed rooms but I am sure a member of staff would carry luggage if nescessary. The rooms are located through a courtyard. To the front of the hotel is bar/cafe which serves good coffee's and cakes. The breakfast room is small but there are good range of breakfast items available. The staff in this hotel are very courteous and helpful. Our stay at the Sarotti Hoefe enhanced our visit to Berlin. The next time we visit Berlin we will of course choose the Sarotti Hoefe once again.

I stayed in the hotel for four nights. It was very easy to find and, on arrival, was made to feel very welcome by the staff. As mentioned previously, there isn't a lift in the hotel, but if I had needed it, someone would have happily carried my case to the room for me. The hotel also will store you bag on your last day (if you want to go sightseeing). You just need to leave the bag packed in the room and they will take it to reception for you.

The rooms were of a very good size (I'm used to cramped accommodations in major citites). The only complaint I had of the room itself was that the overhead shower, on occasion, would go very hot. The hand shower (also in the shower cubicle) was fine though. The room didn't have air conditioning, but did have a ceiling fan and plenty of windows for ventiliation. It also had heaters, if needed. The room also had a mini bar, safe, iron, TV and free wifi. For an extra charge you can also have a DVD player. In short, it has everything you need.

As the hotel was "off" the road (in a courtyard), it was very quiet other than the coming and going of guests. However, my main, and possibly only real critcism, was that the corridors in the hotel had big metal doors at the end (to the adjoining stairwell). At times, when they closed, the noise of the doors was pretty loud. Also, housekeeping started at 8am and was fairly noisy for a while. If you're a light sleeper and fancy a lie in, you might want to bear that in mind.

I didn't opt for the breakfast. I did eat there one morning, and although the hot chocolate was divine, I found the croissant very dry. The cakes looked good though.

All that said, the location (a few mins to Mehringdamm U-Station) was great. If, like me, you arrive at Tegel airport, getting to the hotel is easy. Catch the X9 bus from the airport to Jakob-Kaiser-Platz U-station. Then take the U7 underground line to Mehringdamm (in the direction of Rudow).

Over all.. compared to some of the other hotels I viewed, and the associated prices, I was very comfortable. Just a shame about the 8am noise, that's all. Incidentally though.. the housekeeping was great. Very clean, fresh towels every day.

I hope you enjoy your stay and Berlin - a great place!

Very clean and nice rooms in old factory. This hotel is good to see and stay. Not recomended for people with difficulties to walk in stairs (no elevator).

This is my second time staying at the Sarotti Hoefe - I was tempted to change after looking at TripAdvisor as for some reason not too many people have yet rated this place - and I am glad I didn't. The Sarotti is an excellent choice with fantastic rooms, exposed brickwork, free standing bath, plasma TV, really clean, great value mini-bar, and everything else that you would want from a hotel. And it costs less than 100 euros per night. Breakfast and drinking is done in the beautiful cafe which is a popular local haunt, so the place doesn't actually feel like a hotel, but more like somewhere with great rooms off a courtyard out the back of a neighbourhood cafe. The location is perfect for those who want to stay in or around Kreuzberg, or those who want to be central to attractions like Alexanderplatz but don't want to stay in some of the more characterless areas such as those around Friedrichstrasse.

We really enjoyed our four nights stay at the Sarotti Hoefe. We had one of the 'Executive Suites' which in fact turned out to be an appartment with kitchen and even a fireplace, tastefully renovated and furnished. Kind of 'old style Berlin' living ... spotless !

They serve a very good breakfast choice in the coffee shop; it's also a nice hangout to sip an Espresso or Macchiato while serving the web on their free WIFI.

We will come back any time !

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in December 2008. Check in is in the bar-cafe downstairs and then you go out and round to the courtyard and up stairs ( no elevator!) - we were on the 2nd floor(52 steps and yes I counted them) and though not really a problem, it would be difficult for some people. The rooms are interesting, spacious and clean, although not luxurious, but the bathroom was very clean and modern with a super shower. Because the rooms are at the back and face onto the courtyard it is blissfully quiet at night - Mehringdamm is quite a busy street but we couldn't hear the traffic at all.
The buffet breakfast is served in the bar and is good and very generous - the items offered on Christmas morning were unusual to say the least! zB Wurst und Kartoffelsalat.
The disadvantage, I would say, is that, apart from the bar downstairs which by the way is a lovely place to have a snack-lunch or a late-night drink, there is no residents' lounge as such - there is a smokers' lounge but we don't smoke!
It is a 5 minute walk to the U-Bahn stop at Mehringdamm and if you have a 3 or 7-day travel ticket it is really easy to get around Berlin. Just around the corner from the Sarotti is Bergmanstrasse and a huge selection of eating or drinking places - very good and good value!
On Christmas Eve we went to a Carol Service ,,Christvesper" in the Berliner Dom - wonderful! On Christmas Day we queued in the freezing cold with our German friends to go to up to the (Norman Foster designed) dome of the Reichstag but it was well worth it! and that night we went to a Weihnachtskonzert in the new Philharmonie. If you like modern architecture a boat-trip will take you up the Spree and you will get an amazing view of the Bundeskanzleramt and the Reichstag.... We would both say you should not miss going to see Nefertiti (in Altes Museum at the moment); more beautiful than the Mona Lisa we reckon by far. The queues at the Fernsehturm were so long we did not wait.

  • Liked — Friendly, helpful staff.
  • Disliked — Lack of a comfortable lounge.
