I had mixed feelings about booking this hotel.
Once I arrived at the hotel I kind of understood why some people really hated it and others absolutely loved it.
The location is first class, steps away from the main shopping street Kudamm
I believe that people who usually stay in anonymous Sheraton-Hilton type of hotels with vast (mediocre quality) buffets and personnel treating them as sub-gods will find it difficult here. The friendly staff is young and easy going with a cool attitude. People had complained about that in their reviews. I found it quite refreshing and hip!
Yes, the rooms are on the small side. But very clean and kind of sexy! The shower is very comfortable yet fully exposed! The toilet is in a separate room, creating a quite spot. I thought it to be the ideal room for couples! The bed with its awkward wooden frame is only accessible from one side. It is kind of hard to get in. Not my favorite design, I must admit. But once I managed to get it I had a very comfortable and relaxing sleep.
Our standard room faced the street Knesebeck and was really very quiet! The doors are somehow noise proof. You barely hear anything.
There are red lights everywhere, adding to the quirkiness and kitsch. I really loved it!
The breakfast buffet was well stocked with various cold cuts, cheese, fresh herbs and Mediterranean varieties. You could also additionally order omelets and fried eggs.
If I would go back to Berlin, I would definitely stay in the Hotel Q!
