    How to reply

    Dear all,

    When you reply to a question, "What time do you get up?", which do you think sounds natural?

    A: At six thirty.
    B: Six thirty.

    This may sound a very basic question, but I honestly don't know if it's acceptable to omit "at" here.

    Thank you!

    Both are just fine. I would probably not say "at."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
