We stayed at Hotel Otto for 3 nights and I have to say that the location is perfect. It´s very near S-bahn and U-bahn stations, there are good restaurants in the neighbourhood and you can walk to Ku´damm.

Breakfast was good, but we were wondering how does it work in the summertime, when there´s more people. If I went again, I would not take breakfast, 15€ per person is quite much even though there was lot of variety. There was suppose to be free juice, tea, coffee and cakes available 2 pm -9 pm, but there was nothing left when we went to have some. I think a bit annoying...

Our room was standard double, nice, clean and perfect for short stay. There´s a safety box to use free of charge and hair dryer was also found in the room. What we missed was a fridge. There was a lot of noise coming outside and also from stairs.

But overall nice hotel, friendly staff and location is perfect.

This hotel was lovely, very nice, clean rooms, walk in wardrobe with lots of useful items like toothbrush sets, nail files etc. The breakfast was ok, lots of food but a bit random, we had spanish week and chocolate week (chocolate gateau for breakfast?). The free juice, tea, coffee and cakes in the day is a really nice touch. Location was great, really close to the subway and bus stops and theres some nice italian and spanish restaurants just up the road.

The thing that really effected our stay at hotel otto was the noise. Our room was right next to the stairs (301) and the noise of people walking up and down the stairs all through the night and morning was ridiculous. The last night we were there, all we could hear were the people above us walking around their room. The other downside was there was no climate control in the room and it was mostly very hot.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the stairs

We went to Berlin for 4 days - for opera and sight-seeing. We thought the Hotel Otto was great: easy walk to underground/train stations and nearby restaurants. Rooms were large, clean, stylish and quiet. All-you-can-eat buffet breakfast was very convenient and we really appreciated the free coffee and cake in the afternoon. The staff were friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommend it.

Went there for work and stayed four nights. The place has great staff who were always being very attentive and kind. Rooms are spacious, super-clean and stylish, yet efficiently designed. The best thing must be breakfast and the ability to work on the seventh floor, helping yourself to free coffee and drinks during the day. I will certainly be back. The only snag is the noise of the rubbish trucks early in the morning, for that reason I would suggest you to book a room on the top floor if you can.

Room Tip: book a room on the top floor if you can

We stayed in the Otto hotel in mid November for a weekend in Berlin to celebrate a birthday which included a visit to the Deutsche Oper. We selected the hotel because it was within walking distance of the opera house. It was outside the centre but well situated with the U-bahn in one direction from the hotel and the S-bahn in the other direction given you access to the whole city. The hotel was modern and although the room was small, it was well appointed and very clean. The breakfast was very good. The breakfast room (at the top of the building) doubled as a lounge and you could get free tea, coffee and cake in the afternoon. Free water was also provided. It was very cold when we were there but the room was well heated. The room may be hot in the summer because of the lack of air conditioning. A pleasant hotel with friendly staff. Would recommend.

Nice hotel, that I would recommend for short business travel.
The reception provides no direct 24h service but is available on demand during the night (the room key opens the entrance door as well).
Room large and clean.
No hairdryer in the bathroom.
Limited list of tv channels, no sat tv.
Very nice breakfast room on 7th floor, with amazing view from the terrace windows.
I did not find a panel to control the temperature from, but climatisation was good.
Better to ask for a room not at ground floor (street noise).
