“Nice place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Choose Otto for 1 night stay because of good rating and was not disappointed. At arrival got upgrade to studio which was quite big room with kitchenette. Hotel is contemporary design, simple but with many nice touches and perfectly clean. Included are lot of complimentary amenities: well functioning wi-fi, afternoon tee in lounge, bottle of water. We cannot comply about noise, but hauling luggage by stairs was some disappointment (lift stops between floors). Room was not too hot, but with big radiator (good for drying washed clothes of our kid). Shower only. Excellent breakfast buffet worth EUR 15.

Have just returned from three nights at the Hotel Otto. Handlily located for the city centre links on the U and S bahns and surrounded by good cafes and shops. The room was a comfort room. Spacious and clean with complimentary mineral water. Free afternoon coffee and cakes/snacks are available in the top floor lounge during the afternoon. Reception staff were friendly and very helpful. An ideal place to base yourself on a visit to Berlin.

I stayed at hotel Otto in Berlin for 4 nights and it was a fantastic experience.The hotel is very conveniently located in a quiet street near the Ku'damm Strasse and close to S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations, so well connected to all the corners of the city. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The room was big, comfortable and clean, but, being placed next to the reception desk, it was noisy at certain times. There is apparently a free wi-fi connection in the rooms, but it is extremely difficult to get connected to the net, so I wouldn't count much on that.

Stayed 3 nights, was a nice hotel. The room was clean, provided "freebies" nail file, shaving kit, shoe horn, sewing kit, toothbrush and toothpaste, "ladies" kit, shampoo, lotion, body wash, bottled water and fruit!
Was clean lines and contemporary decor. Lift stops between floors and there are 3 extra stair sets to reach the 7th floor breakfast area...but it keeps you fit! The lift plays bird noises which is quite fun.

Breakfast is really good, we had it included when we booked, good choice buffet breakfast, with champagne as a normal offering of drinks (no extra charge!)

Afternoon snacks also amazing, we had an a large breakfast went out all day and were able to come back and have tea, coffee and sandwiches and cakes ( all complementary) just go up to the breakfast floor and help yourselves.

Lovely hotel. Set in the west side of Berlin, so if you are going clubbing and want to be in staggering distance this hotel is not for you. However if you don't mind getting the underground then that's easy to use and cheap. 6.50€ for an unlimited day ticket for zones A+B which can be used on the U & S Bahn and the Bus as well. Also they provide free maps at all stations.

Staff were friendly and informative and even provided maps free of charge on arrival.

All in all I would visit again.

Great Charlottenburg location, only a 10 minute walk from Tiergarten. Ultra-modern, clean, comfortable. Great bathroom. Fantastic breakfast offering all you could possibly want, and well worth the €15 supplement. Friendly, helpful staff who try really hard. From midday to 9pm, complimentary coffee, tea and cake are available in the 7th floor breakfast room with a rooftop terrace - a nice touch, as is the complimentary mineral water and umbrella loans.

Stayed 5 nights at the end of September and we were delighted with our choice of this hotel. The location is first class being only a couple of minutes to the U-bahn and about 5 minutes to the S-bahn - in turn only a few minutes by train to Zoo station or Hbf. The area abounds with a wide range of bars and restaurants and Hotel Otto will give good advice as where to eat. The hotel itself is in a pleasant area, away from the hordes of tourists but still close enough to all the action you may seek. Staff were very efficient and friendly. Our room, on the second floor was very quiet and most spacious as well as super clean. Good bathroom facilities. Breakfast, in a pleasant room on the 7 floor with views to the City, was extremely good. Unlimited free WiFi available in your room. An excellent hotel. Only minor downside is that the lift stops halfway between floors, and not at each level, but this is no big deal

Is this hotel named after the much revered inventor of the brassiere, Otto Titsling? Get it? Tit-sling. OK, that's what Bette Midler sang in "Beaches", but I think she made that up. I saw no paintings of full-figured brassieres in my room... oh wait, there was that pink mannequin wallpaper with the pointy tit... uh, skip it.

If you want modern, minimalist and surprisingly comfortable, you don't need to look much further than Hotel Otto in the tony neighborhood of Charlottenburg. It's all that with an undeniable hipster factor that should appeal to anyone looking for mid-priced cosmopolitan accommodations close enough to the city center. What's especially nice is that the location is on a quiet street but within a three-minute walk from a U-Bahn station in one direction (Ernst-Reuter-Platz) and a five-minute stroll to the S-Bahn station in the other direction (Sauvignyplatz).

It's definitely a boutique hotel with just 46 rooms. There's a front desk with someone who is locally informed and multilingual, no lobby, and you hear very little foot traffic. There's a spacious breakfast area up on the 7th floor which does give you a rooftop view of Charlottenburg, and the elevator, as slow as it is, is filled with tropical bird noises for reasons only known to the owner. Quirky touches abound as there's even a "surprise" button in the elevator that you can press to hear the cock-a-doodle-do of a rooster in the morning.

I was honestly impressed with the spacious room (see photo) - two adjoining double beds with down comforters (no spreads), a walk-in dressing room and closet, a separate bathroom, basic cable TV (with just CNN in English), free WiFi (though you need to retrieve the code at the front desk). For $146 per night, I thought it was quite a good deal given the proximity to the Ku'damm (Kurfurstendamm), the city's main shopping boulevard, and several top-notch restaurants. I would definitely consider coming back for my next visit.
