Good little hotel in Gesundbrunnen
Hotel Big Mama is a bit hidden from streetview, and somehow easy to miss. It is, however, a reasonably good hotel and with an excellent price-to-quality ratio. It is located not far from the tram line, and within walking distance of the U8/U9 station of Osloer Strasse. My room was spacious, the bed was quite comfortable, and the curtains were thick enough to block the annoying sunlight appearing in the summer skies of Berlin at 5am, helping me sleep in if I wanted to. The WiFi was good and reliable. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and the reception was always open. I can't comment on the breakfast, as I did not take it (it seemed a bit overpriced). But overall, a very pleasant experience. I would stay here again.

Great value - clean and comfortable
The accomodation was very clean and comfortable. Clean towels daily if required. Family room had plenty of space with a small kitchen area. New toiletries holders installed whilst there - better. Good hairdryer. Only concern was location - a bit far out but accessible by train once you figure out which line to take. Is right in middle of residential area, off the tourist route. Good value for those who don't mind using the train.

Comfortable and clean. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Quiet. Would benefit from another computer terminal at reception. One staff member dealing with a queue of customers on one terminal was a bit of a pain.

Nice clean budget hotel
I'll repeat what other reviewers have stated. Friendly english speaking staff,nice sized spotless rooms with comfortable bed. I'm an early riser (my wife is not) so appreciated the guest lounge area and free wi-fi. It's only a short walk to the U-Bahn,Trams and buses so pretty easy to get to other parts of the city. The only negative was the dawn chorus of sparrows etc that were instrusive as our room was at the rear, overlooking trees. Best pack some earplugs

Hotel Big Mama with the family for a 3 night stay
Hotel Big Mama is great for access to the transport network, the reception staff are pleasant , helpful and gave us a friendly welcome. The hotel room was spacious, clean and un-cluttered. although we had a sink and a cold water tap this room could have benefitted greatly from having a refrigerator to store food and milk for us to prepare breakfast / packed lunches before our sightseeing trips into town.

Perfect for family
Great price. Good location. 650mtr from u-bahn station. Bakery just outside. Clean and spacious rooms. Plenty sockets.
Helene, ie3 night family trip
Good 6.0
Ok to stay here again if there’s nowhere else.
10 stars for the friendly and helpful staffs and excellent service. Located in a bit sketchy neighborhood. The rooms facing the wood are nicer and quiet. The ones facing the residential are not so nice and can’t be noisy. This is the HOSTEL not hotel. 2 rooms, 4 beds each sharing a 1 small private bathroom. Most people staying here are business and students. I’m a tourist and I feel bad to use the bathroom before they do. The pillow is so tiny and the bed is pretty uncomfortable.

Highly recommended!
Room was spacious, rather simple but very modern (ikea) design. Bed and pillows were great, I have never better slept in my life (or that was Berlin that tired me). Room temperature was just as it was supposed to be, even though I am not sure if there was some kind of air conditioning, since I didn’t needed. The only thing that was missing in the room was the fridge. Bathroom was big, nothing fancy but I had everything needed (clean towels, hair dryer, soap, shampoo). And staff at the reception was great, nice, polite and gave me all the answers I needed, though without being too intrusive as receptionist staff usually is in more so to say fancier hotels. Public transport is close to the building (max 6minutes) and it takes you to the city “center” in less than 20min. I would definitely choose the same hotel next time in Berlin.
