“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013



Visited this hotel through a special offer on Secret Escapes in September 2013.

The hotels central location is a perfect base for a few days in Berlin.

The reception staff are really helpful and the rooms are clean. The only downside is that smoking is allowed in the hotel bar which is not good for a non smoker.

We had breakfast included in the room rate, however I don't think it's worth the €20 price tag & there are loads of cafes nearby for breakfast/brunch.

We stayed here for two nights. Another three-and-a-half star place. I do wish we could star more precisely!

The hotel was difficult to find, as the sign outside is so subtle, it can only be seen in good light when both glass doors are shut. (Luckily, we had the full address.) And this was part of the problem - it seemed that the hotel started from a quirky name and a design idea, and practicality followed very much later, Even the room numbers were displayed so discreetly, they took some finding. Form did not follow function, so comfort and practicality had to take a back seat. For example: the sloping bedside was annoying when getting in/out of bed on one side; the washbasin on the other side meant that the second sleeper could only get in/out of bed at the foot end. The washbasin also caused the constant danger of the bed getting wet. The shower was not private. There was nowhere comfortable to sit, and the position of the only chair blocked the way through.

However, we did find the beds comfortable once we'd struggled into them, and the room was very clean. The usual toiletries were provided. We liked the iPod dock and the good TV. In two days, I'm sure we didn't try out all the lighting options - one can have any combination of subtle lights on.

We didn't try the breakfast, as it would have cost E20 extra each, and we don't eat that much breakfast. But there are loads and loads of good eating places around. We chose to enjoy breakfast at iconic Krantzler, just down the road. We were very happy with the location of the hotel - in what had been the centre of West Berlin. The book shop across the road is worth a look or two, and the Berlin Story museum over the Kudamm is very good, with the chilling but fascinating cold war bunker beneath it.

When our luggage was saved for us after we checked out, we were pleased to find that it was properly labelled and locked away.

A clean, acceptable hotel in a good (in a bourgeois way) location, which we'd have enjoyed even more if appearance and quirkiness could have been made subservient to comfort.

Stayed at the Q! for three nights on a mini-vacation to Berlin. Would definitely return. The hotel has a great, accommodating staff to go with very modern rooms. Breakfast is good. Location is quite nice -- not the hippest part of Berlin but a very upscale area with nice shops and good restaurants. The metro is close by. If you plan to spend much time in the room, the upfront rooms facing out are more stylish.

Room Tip: Choose a room that faces out on the street instead of in the back. More expensive to be sure but mo...

What a great hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was impeccably clean and quirky. The breakfast was lovely with a great selection for all tastes.

Really good location; good shops, restaurants, bars and close to U-Bahn.

We will be recommending to all friends and family who visit Berlin.

We booked this hotel thru a special deal in the internet, and couldn't be happier....

From the fast e-Mail response about some questions before arrival,to friendly stuff in every outlet of the hotel, just amazing. The rooms are interesting and well designed, okay the bathtub we had in our room was not easy to get in,but we certainly enjoyed it. Even that this hotel doesn't have his own restaurant the food comes by delivery from the restaurant next door and was just amazing and a good value of the price.
I mean Berlin has a lot to offer but it's also nice enjoying a cocktail at the bar before going out, we definitely gonna come back if we stay again in Berlin.

Hotel is cery modern and fun! We booked a flight/hotel package and it was amazing! Wellness area is nice but doesn't open till 6pm i found it dissapointing as i like to steam in the morning. However the relaxation area is fun with sand and lounge chairs and the sauna was nice and hot. The bar service was slow but the drinks and food were great! Our room had a tub attached to our bed which was fun for our honeymoon! Overall great place and would stay again!

Hotel is well situated in Berlin close to the trains hotel s very modern, good staff who speak English who were very helpful, room is good the beds great when you get in it, you can only get in from the bottom or one side the head and one side are against either a wall or the open plan bath room. The wooden sides stick out so watch your toes. That said I slept well and the shower is decent enough.
Breakfast is really good but avoid peak times as there are only limited tables to sit at.
My moan is at night there was smokers in the bar something I am not used to.
