“One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

It's hard to find fault with Hotel Otto (where I stayed for three nights recently, while visiting friends in Berlin). The hotel is well situated close to the heart of west Berlin and many transport links. The hotel is simply and tastefully decorated. The rooms are kept very clean. The bed was very comfortable (one small gripe - the pillows are not the best, more like weird-shaped cushions than pillows).

The very best thing about this hotel? The staff. From receptionists, to breakfast staff, to cleaners - every single person I met in this hotel was friendly, smiling and helpful at all times. The reception staff went out of their way to help when my friend's bags were lost by her airline (my friend wasn't even a guest at this hotel!). We were bowled over by the great service, and thank them very much.

Breakfast on the rooftop was fantastic. It's pricey (and there are nearby cafes, which I didn't sample, if you don't want to pay E15), but it's extremely tasty and there is plenty of choice. The croissants and breads were warm and fresh, and everything was topped up when supplies ran low.

My only small grumbles... the walls weren't completely soundproof, and I was woken early on my last morning by noise from my neighbours. And the pillows were not very comfortable.

However, I will definitely be staying at Hotel Otto again on return visits to Berlin. And I have already recommended this hotel to several people I have spoken to since returning. This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.

Have rated all aspects of this hotel as 5 stars, great hotel and amazing value for money. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location in a nice area if Berlin. We hired their bikes for the day as well and had a great time cycling round Berlin.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Helpful staff, efficient check in and service.

The room was clean and huge even with 3 of us staying there. It is a quiet location but with good restaurants in the immediate area. The metro is just a 5 minute walk away.

The only negative thing I can think to say is that, as it was the middle of the summer, there was no air-con. But this was only a minor gripe as they provide a large fan in the room.

A personal highlight was being able to an early morning run from Charlottenburg into Berlin and back.

Highly recommended, would stay here again!

This was our second visit to Hotel Otto where we had stayed on our first trip to Berlin in 2009. It delivered once again! The rooms are large by European standards and tastefully decorated. The quirky elevator stops and slight step up to the bathroom in our room added to the charm. The breakfast on the 7th floor is superb! The covenant location and helpful staff are invaluable!

It was a very good experience in Hotel Otto! Staff are nice and the hotel is located nearby the train stations. Surrounded by great restaurant, breakfast in the hotel is also great too with plenty of choice.

Room is clean and big (considered as single room).
One little down side is there is a few steps of stairs you need to take to your room coz the elevator is located between two floors.

But still I will recommend this hotel to all my friend who is going to Berlin.

I really enjoyed my 3 night stay at Hotel Otto. The room which was located on the top floor was surprisingly spacious with a little dining area and large windows that could be opened for ventilation.
I did not try the hotel breakfast as there were plenty of nice cafes nearby but I did sample the cakes and sandwiches that were offered free of charge at the breakfast room every afternoon - they were a really nice touch.
I would definitely stay at Hotel Otto again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are quieter
