The Hotel Otto is a great place to stay. It's central and within easy walking distance to the U-bahn (Ernst Reuter Platz- 5 mins from hotel) and the S-Bahn (Savignyplatz- 10 mins walk). I was fortunate to be upgraded to a studio apartment on the 6th floor , which was really good.
It was clean throughout and had great facilities. A lovely comfortable double bed and spacious wardrobes with a safe inside. The kitchenette had a 2 ring electric hob and a full size fridge, which I found very useful. The cupboards had 1 frying pan and 1 saucepan, crockery, cutlery and even a corkscrew. It even had a cafetiere with free coffee, which was a nice touch. The room was cleaned every day and the Zents toiletries were lovely. It was nice to have extras like a hairdryer and a TV. There was even a dvd player if you wanted it. I had lovely views over the city from a mini balcony.
The hotel's lounge and breakfast/cafe room on the 7th floor was nice and had great views from the balcony patio. However, every time I went up there, there were no cakes (I think I must have timed it wrong!) but there was fresh fruit and coffee available.
The staff were very helpful and polite. I liked the fact that when I spoke to them in German, they answered me in German, rather than in English. I have an A-level in German so I like to practise using what I know! Their English was excellent though as I overheard them talking to other guests. I was also able to leave my backpack locked away reception on my last day, as my flight wasn't until the evening and staff were very accomodating.
The nearest supermarket that I found was a 'Netto' on the corner where Knesebeckstrasse meets the Kufurstendamm road. It was a bit like Lidl. On the actual road of the Hotel Otto, there is a lovely bakery, a pharmacy and a digital photo printing shop that I found sells batteries if you need them for your camera!
Be warned though- most of the shops are closed on Sundays so don't plan to go shopping then.
Overall, a fantastic location, clean and smart, with helpful staff. I would happily go back again!
