A&O Berlin Mitte
Ranked #263 of 357 Specialty Lodging in Berlin
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The property was close to both Ostbanhof station and jannowitzbrücke station (which is next to the Alexanderplatz), so a perfect central location, and train travel is very cheap. I stayed with a group of my friends we were given a spacious room with a bunk bed and two singles, the rooms were kept warm, as we went in December and the bathrooms were clean, with towels, soap etc provided. Also, to prove the central location you could see the Tv Tower from our window. Overall, i would say this is the perfect place if you want a budget holiday to Berlin

Stayed in a twin room for a good price (40 euros) and 5 each for breakfast. The room was small but comfortable with two single beds that could be pushed together to form a double, a small TV, window onto a large courtyard and a bathroom. The location is good, relatively near Ostbahnhof station which is walking distance to the East Side Gallery, a stretch of remaining Berlin Wall with art painted on it. The map on the hostel website is not clear though and it took around 15 mins to find it. Note that it is actually easier to go to Heinrich Heine U-Bahn station (U8) and walk down Köpenicker street to get to the hostel. The breakfast was adequate and buffet style but it was very crowded in the narrow passages and rooms where it is served. Overall I would stay here again for a short Berlin stay. It is no frills though, and it shows, but a good deal for the price. Can't comment on the value of the hostel section though.

Room Tip: Get a room away from internal locking doors in the corridor as they can close noisily at night when...

We traveled with 14 people and had one room for 8 and one for 6. The rooms were clean, the bathroom was okay. In the 8 people room there was a huge shower. The beds were not that nice and everything looks a bit run-down.
But the location is good and if u stay just 2 nights for going out and party in Berlin its okay. Its was quite cheap, so with the same price I would go there again.

Room for 4 people was apartment in the building across the street from the hotel building. When we arrived to the hotel, it was already dark and our way to the room was not easy, because signs were not clearly visible. It seems the problem to find the apartment was not only ours, because on several doors in the building there were inscriptions 'No apartment'.

The apartment was nice and clean (but during 2 day/night nobody come to us to clean our room or take the garbage or change towels): two large double beds in the room, small kitchen and a bathroom. Wooden floors in the house, so the audibility was good there. Free Wi-fi was only in main hotel building. On the day of our departure we rummaged the apartment from top to bottom looking for passport; but in vain. Passport quietly and peacefully waited for us at the reception after our check in.

Its more a hostel than a hotel. I'm sorry but the service is poor and the rooms are not that great. Actually, spent a little more money and have a good stay in berlin! Beds are poor, rooms are small, the people at the reception speak English, thats a plus for those who are not able to speak German. And most of all, the breakfast is like a breakfast at an Army base.... Not my cup of tea.

This hotel was one of the cheaper hotels in east Berlin. I would recommend if you are just looking for a sleeping place. It is not a pretty place, and is popular with school trips etc and backpackers (because it also has a dormitory based hostel) The hotel itself was quiet and clean enough. The bathroom was a bit smelly, but I guess that was the original plumbing reminding us of the building's cold war heritage. The hostel looked a rather dirty and smelly place-perfect for backpacking kids and school trips, so do not stay there unless you are looking for a trip nick to your youth! As I said, location was excellent. The former East Berlin is a far more colourful place than West Berlin and makes for a much more interesting stay. And this is what distinguishes Berlin apart from any other city. And the hotel is a perfect base for exploring this.
