Quentin Design Hotel Berlin

I recently booked a short break here and unfortunately made an error with the dates. The break was booked 6 months in advance, so I was hopeful that the airline and hotel would be able to change the dates for me (to a few dates later the same week). I was happy to pay any admin fee or extra charges required. The airline were happy to comply with this request, even though I had an economy ticket. When I approached the hotel however, they point-blank refused and no explanation was given, other than that that was their policy. I can't see why the hotel couldn't have been flexible enough to change my booking - I have now lost £180 and have no goodwill towards this property whatsoever. If the hotel is as intransigent and inflexible about other matters relating to your stay, I would avoid it.

Beautful city and a well presented hotel - loved the design aspects of the lobby and the rooms - well situated in the city too and easy to find. Good local amenities and bars and access to the tram - friendly and would definately stay here again should i go back to Berlin.

Stayed before.... and we'll no doubt stay again. Whilst it's not perfect Quentin is a perfect base for us in Berlin.... the Superior Double Rooms are comfortable.... the beds are great.... this time the hot water to the shower was a bit hit or miss.... As ever we chose not to have breakfast here better offerings are available outside. A huge plus though is the warm welcome you are afforded, you can leave luggage securely... the hotel is relatively quiet but, for us, the fact that you are just yards away from the bars that we frequent is the best.... roll home at 2am and it takes you just 2 minutes! Perfect.

I stayed here for one night in the smallest "economy" room. The room was decent and well laid out (although lacking a desk and chair). The bed was comfortable and I slept really well. I also loved the bathroom which was recently renovated. The only negatives I had were unexpectedly being charged for breakfast (my fault - my German isn't great but I insisted on using it talking to the receptionist) and the WiFi was painfully slow.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my other half. We turned up a good 2 hours before check in but thankfully got given a room right away. The room on the top floor was pretty big, modern and warm. The warmth factor was certainly a downside, the room through the night was far too warm and the air-conditioning or what was meant to be air-conditioning was awful. We did however find a happy medium propping the skylight open with a book to get some of the Berlin cool air flowing through the room. Bed was big and very comfortable, bathroom practical and nice. Managed to flood the bathroom during every shower due to water flowing round the side of the bath, buy plenty towels to mop up! The location did feel a little out the way of all the main attractions but not far from the zoo train station which is an hour from the airport. Highly recommend everyone to use the train from the airport as it's cheap and really easy to use. Tourist information office at the airport sells tickets and gives a handy printout of the required route. Overall, quality of the hotel was great, location and warmth are only reason for 4/5.

Had major issues with air conditioning and the quality of accomodation. Tried resolving with head office. They just ignored emails in the end. proved unhelpful in the end too. Stay from hell, despite being checked in by a very friendly staffer.

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.
