Futuristic. L.A.-based architecture firm Graft, whose client list includes Brad Pitt, has combined fluid lines, curves and cocoon-like guestrooms at Hotel Q! Berlin, a hipster hideaway just off the city’s poshest shopping street. Walls and floors melt into each other and wrap around to reveal seats, the corridors are a striking blood red, and low lighting and dark wood make for a sultry, clandestine feel. To complete the cool, clubby vibe, a hip playlist plays throughout the hotel from concealed speakers.
Bed and Bath
There’s not a right angle in sight in the stark off-white and slate guestrooms. Heavenly beds are wrapped in crisp white linens and hover on a curvaceous platform cut from satin oak. In some rooms the bathtubs are built into the wooden frames, right next to the beds. Arty ceiling prints or wall motifs liven up the otherwise monochromatic decor. Studios are double the size of the Standard Rooms, but neither offer Twin beds; this is very much a hotel for couples.
The Q! Restaurant is a contemporary Thai/Euro mashup open only for evening service, but you won’t care because you’ll be busy at the Q! Bar, where the cocktails are devised by the former manager of London’s Met Bar. This is where Berlin’s fashionistas, musicians and leggy models louche around on ostrich feather cushions. The spa, a cocoon of tranquility, lurks in the basement. The relaxation chamber is set at body temperature, and the Japanese wash zone features a hot sand floor.
In the Area
The hotel is located just off Kurfürstendamm (or Ku’damm), Berlin’s answer to Fifth Avenue, and only four blocks from the iconic department store Ka De We. It’s a 20-minute walk to the Gedaechtniskirche church, but all the major sights are within strolling distance, from the Reichstag to the Brandenburg Gate. Book a table at the Kaefer restaurant, which is perched alongside Norman Foster’s Reichstag dome, for cool views of the city at night. For more atmospheric eateries, explore the trendy neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg.
How to Get There
A fantastic hotel in a safe, secure location. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient.
Sheets and towels changed everyday and the maid service was great. Breakfast selection was amazing and I would highly recommend the hotel.
My room was rather small. Big enough for sleeping. But working was not really nice.
Bathroom was big and nicely designed.
The breakfast was top. Very nice buffet. Rich choice and quality food.
Attached to the hotel is a Thai restaurant, that serves top food.
The hotel is nicely located. Just next to Kurfürstenstraße, in a rather quiet area with restaurants and coffee shops.
All in all I would recommend it.
Traveling to Berlin on business a few times each month I count myself lucky every time I get a room there. The location is great with good public transport options and plenty of bars and restaurants in walking distance. Rooms comfy, very clean, well equipped and stylish. But most importantly it’s some of the nicest and attentive hotel staff ever. Truly my berlin hotel favorite for almost a year by now. Thanks Q Team!
Me and my boyfriend stated in this hotel for a couple of nights back in january and we absolutely loved it.
The location that the hotel is in is fantastic, it is a two minute walk from the train station and is a couple of minutes walk away from some bars, shops and restaurants.
The hotel itself is so modern and cosy, and the staff at the front desk were extremely helpful and chatty, despite the slight language barrier. They were very attentive to our needs.
The room we stayed in looked out the streets and the was a great size. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was immaculately clean. The layout of the room mean that everything was extremely accessible and as it was winter time, we were able to adjust the temperature of the room pretty quickly.
The shower was separate from the toilet as the toilet itself was in a small room and the shower was accessible from a different area. The only thing i would change would be that the shower door is just a clear glass which means that anyone else in the room can see you fully through the shower door. Besides that, i loved the room.
We didn't make use of the spa facilities or the bar inside of the hotel due to wanting to experience Berlin but if we were there for more than a couple of days we may have used these.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone as it was overall a fantastic hotel to stay in.
Small boutique, modern hotel. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Access to public transport is very easy so that central Berlin can be reached in under 30 minutes. Lots of very nice bars and restaurants close by. Ideal hotel for a city break and very reasonably priced.
