Quentin Design Hotel Berlin3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed here for a couple of nights after a family wedding nearby. Taxi from Berlin south airport was about £45. Our return trip by bus and train as suggested by the concierge cost £7.40 !! Lovely comfortable room with all modern comforts....wide screen TV, air con, mini-bar and safe. We upgraded from the economy room for a tenner which was money well spent. The staff spoke perfect English (my German non-existent). The 2 concierges we met were extremely helpful with things like travel tips and bus times etc. Breakfast very good value at 10 euros but there are plenty of places around to eat out. Nearest metro station is 10 mins walk away. Yes it's in the gay centre of Berlin, but who cares. It was a fantastic location to stay in.
A good hotel, with friendly staff, nice room, comfy bed, good size bathroom, good aircon. But something is missing. Not much vibe. in fact we didn't have breakfast there pretty much as Dave. there are plenty of places to have breakfast. good neighbourhood, close to 2 metro stations (5mins walk) We have been partying pretty much every night and i can tell you the room are quiet with nice black curtain. Berlin i will come back and can definitely stay there again.
The taxi ride from the airport, to the hotel was 20 minutes and luckily for me my driver knew exactly where he was going, as it was after midnight when I arrived. Ideally located close to town and right in the heart of the gay district, the front of the hotel was smart, chic and welcoming and I couldn’t wait to get inside. One of my lovely readers asked me how I feel after staying in a bad hotel. I’d say it’s akin to turning up for a date with somebody on paper who you should click with, but in person simply you don’t. When I arrived at the Quentin Design Hotel, it was fresh from one of those “I hated my hotel” trips, with my fingers crossed. Fortunately, I had nothing to worry about it. Well actually I did, as I arrived minus my suitcase – lost somewhere between Rhodes and Berlin; by my affiliate travel carriers Air Berlin and Alitalia (reunited with me three long days later grrr…) I was understandably a little grumpy and definitely emotional. Just the thought of spending one night in an Alitalia ‘we’ve lost your luggage’ emergency, here’s something to wear t-shirt, was enough to make me want to weep. My Quentin receptionist, who clearly an old hand I’m sure to travellers’ luggage woes, was wonderful. Super calm, sympathetic to my suitcase pain and extremely helpful. The art on show throughout the hotel was just what I like. Bold, contemporary and in some instances really intriguing. It beautifully complimented the lobby interiors. The lobby was an interesting fusion of high low seating, in between art pieces and then, appealing to the diva in me, two fabulous throne style chairs, that greeted guests at the top of the lobby stairs. At the far end of the lobby, behind a glass door, and one of those delightful extras you sometimes find in smaller boutique hotels was a gorgeous back garden. It was neatly manicured and facing out towards an even larger wall garden full of blooms. On my first two days in Berlin, when the sun decided to come out and play host, this was where I worked and I loved it. The only surprising omission from the beautiful garden were a few large parasols. I’ve never liked roasting in the sun, and I’m frequently amazed in these sun worship conscious days, when hotels take the time to pull together a great outdoor space, and then somehow forget to locate any shady areas within the space. My room on the 4th floor was small, but beautifully formed. As I opened the door I was greeted by a large window with a lovely view of the rooftops of the tall houses which faced the main hotel building. To my right, as I entered the room, my bathroom was adequate, not to my particular taste due to the dark tiles and the overall look of those tiles, was also let down by the grouting, which needed cleaning. On the plus side, neat little touches like oriental decorative boxes in first the bathroom, housing guest essentials like a toothbrush, shower cap, razor etc, were extremely welcome, and then another in the bedroom were lovely to look at. However, the boxes themselves were a weird size, particularly in the bathroom, where then box was way too large for the small sink and its surround. The shower was just ish for me – by that I mean it worked, it had great water pressure, but it felt small, even for a travel hobbit like myself and was right beside the toilet, a major bug bear of mine. The bed/living area was how shall I say, muted in its decorative vibe, the teal feature wall, made the painting hung on it, stand out and helped to counterbalance the dark furniture, which was another reason I liked the room, but it didn’t blow me away. The built-in wardrobe was small, but perfect for a short stay, below it was a mini fridge which was welcome, but what I really would have appreciated was tea making facilities as opposed to having to go downstairs for coffee and be charged for it. This practice is something I’m seeing increasingly in hotels. I understand the need to maximise revenue opportunities, but tea and coffee should not be included in those opportunities. Speaking of tea and coffee I have to recommend the More Restaurant Café Berlin just around the corner from the hotel, for their fabulous lattes. If you're looking for a great local eatery, then look no further than Zsa Zsa Burgers, not just for their great burgers and tasty menu, but also for their gorgeous cocktails. I’m just not a lover of dark furniture, however artfully used and bearing in mind the size of the rooms, I couldn’t help thinking lighter tone furniture would have been a better choice in terms of the overall look and feel of the room. The art in each room alone offered an excellent opportunity to both display it and use it as the core of the rooms design concept, which I felt I didn’t see. The bed was large, comfortable and set at just the correct level for my feet to touch the floor when seated on it. My room had direct views in residential housing at the back of the hotel, but due to the distance and curtains, neither my neighbours or I surprised each other with an unwanted skin show. Situated on either side of the bed within reachable level, were power-points for easy charging and I noted a further two power-points in the room and an additional one in the bathroom for hairdryer use. The staff were a lovely bunch – hardworking, friendly and fun. My particularly favourite, who to my eternal shame I didn’t get the name of, but who I can describe as a whirlwind of efficiency, petite, brunette, always smiling and just lovely. Whenever I was in the lounge working, she was on hand to assist me – be it with directions, coffee, local knowledge. It was clear to me that hospitality was her passion and providing the absolute best customer experience, was at the centre of her work ethic; which I greatly appreciated. Overall I would recommend the Quentin Design Hotel - it was brilliantly located, excellent value for money and was a great base from which to explore the diverse activities to see and do in Berlin.
It Was a very nice hotel. If I'm honest i was expecting more. This is not to say that there was anything wrong with the hotel just my opinion. I would definitely stay here again as it was nice and clean and the staff where very friendly. There are no coffee making facilities in the room but you can get a coffee from downstairs for a fee, cant remember but think it was about 2 euros. We didn't have breakfast there as there are lots of other places near by to have breakfast.
I visited here with my partner, a little worried initially about my late check in but the reception was 24 hours luckily. The room was a great size and the bed was so big and comfortable. I can actually say I have not slept so well in a long time. I stayed in room 406 which had a balcony over looking the street and somewhere to go if you are a smoker. The room did lack decent air conditioning which on warm evenings did get stifling hot. Black out blinds were advertised but I didn't see evidence of these as lots of light piled through on light early mornings. My final two comments related to the bathroom. The first was the large window from the bathroom and looked into the bedroom. It was fitted with a blind between doubled glazed pains that didn't seem to work so if you are shy whilst using the toilet this isn't the room for you. We chose to turn the light off to gain light privacy. I also was very cautious when getting in and out of the bath as it felt slippy, maybe the option of a non slip bath matt could be considered. I do feel all my comments were quite minor and wouldn't stop me considering in staying again.
I'm just home from spending 4 nights here with my mum. I found the hotel great, lovely room 310, cleaners in everyday, very welcoming& attentive reception staff always happy to help with directions ect,even when you stumble in drunk at 5am!👌The shower not fantastic but does the job.The only thing i dropped a star for is that is advertises as having a bar/lounge IT DOES NOT!! The hotel is in centre of the lgbt district, it's so easy going& laidback i totally fell in love with the neighbourbood!! We didn't have breakfast in the hotel but there is a fabulous little cafe/bakery on the corner. I can not wait to return with a group of friends😊
This is a tough one to review and let me tell you why. The positives - the location is within decent range from city center/sightseeing places, public parking is available v close to the hotel, the staff was friendly and helpful, the bathroom was newly furbished and v big The negatives - the room we got was located on semi-basement which had an impact on the overall experience. Out of the double glass window just one glass was still in place and the broken pieces were still in the frame. Additionally, the design is pretty peculiar and not really what I would call cozy - but this one is a matter of taste. All in all, the semi-basement and the broken window glass make me say that next time I will look for a different place even though the price for this one was really v low given what you receive. Maybe a different room would have done the trick for me ...
Great service and location only a short bus ride from Zoo station and KaDeWe (the biggest department store in Berlin). Good value for the money. Clean and stylish with mixed of oriental artefacts and European furniture.
This hotel has a lot going for it, including its upscale design feel, its friendly staff, its strong wifi and the fact that it's located in the very heart of the gay district (and indeed is in effect a gay hotel). They only had one room key for the two of us. The room needs some TLC. The lamp shades were mismatched, and one was flaking and cracked. The window wouldn't stay open. The desk chair had dirt marks all over the upholstery. The pillows were not the kind we were used to (i.e. too thin). The duvets were ragged looking and one was held together with tape. The TV is wonky and had only three English stations (despite having about a hundred channels). The bathroom had issues too. The shower was in the bathtub, and there was a fragile glass divider to negotiate. It was impossible to keep the shower from leaking all over the floor. The electric blinds separating the bathroom and bedroom were broken or non functioning so they pasted cheap looking foil on the window for privacy. Some rooms are bigger than others, so ask for a bigger room if your room feels too small. We did this, and they still didn't give us one of the really big rooms. If we stayed here again, we would not take a room on the top floor. There are several very decent and affordable breakfast places just a few metres from this hotel, so it makes no sense to book the breakfast. We are probably going to look for a different hotel next time. All in all, this is disappointing for what should be an upscale design hotel. All this would have been fine if the room had been cheap. But it wasn't. We paid too much for what we got. I think they must raise their prices for the gay party weekends.
Just returned fron city break to Berlin. Stayed in Quentin Design Hotel, it was very good. Modern design and very friendly, staff were very helpful, especially the gentleman behind reception, he gave us a great welcome and helped when we had problem with safe. I did not get his name but he was an asset to hotel. Room cleaned every day and fresh towels and toileteries provided. Would def stay there again.
