There's a new European aesthetic... Veröffentlicht am 23.03.2015
There is a lot to like about this facility. The location is first-rate; the staff is wonderful; the breakfast is out of this world. But for this 60+ traveler, the "comfort" factor is missing, and here's what I mean. The rooms are very spartan; the carpet is indoor/outdoor; the bed is okay, but the chairs and sofa are mid-century-retro-updated and not something you want to spend a lot of time on. Some rooms have useable desks; some do not. There is no lobby to speak of; no place to meet folks and have a drink, although there is a lovely room on the 7th floor that has coffee and cakes from 2-9:00 pm. In my opinion, this is an excellent hotel for young (up to 40-ish) Euro travelers who plan to spend very little time in the room and just want a clean and convenient crib spot as a location to explore the city, with some thoughtful amenities. That being said, this is a hardworking dedicated staff that is trying to keep this hotel in the top ranks.

Dear Guest, We are delighted about your words of praise about the staff of our hotel OTTO and our breakfast buffet on the seventh floor. But, we are astonished at the impression you have gained that our hotel is more suitable for younger people. By our own OTTO concept -the principle of clarity as style associated with a functional design- we would like to offer our guests the optimum comfort for a pleasant stay - no matter what age. Comfortable beds for double or twin bed use and an Arper Armchair with Kvadrat material of Charles and Ray Eames in the Comfort Rooms will invite the guests to linger. And our lounge on the 7th floor offers the ideal place to relax and just enjoy life. There you get free snacks, drinks, coffee and cakes, as well as a large selection of teas. Lean back with a book or a journal from the OTTO library and enjoy the view from our roof terrace over Berlin. Feel free to take wine, beer or soft drinks from our OTTO kiosk with you in our lounge and meet your friends there. Isn`t it a great alternative to the usual lobby? We would appreciate if you give us the opportunity to convince you of the comfort of Hotel OTTO once again. Kind regards
