The Q! has received several international design awards, and it's easy to see how the gently sloping, sweeping interior of the hotel could charm any judge. The rooms feel like larger-than-life artscapes: they're excruciatingly modern, with clean lines and a modular, innovative use of space (some even have a bathtub right next to the bed). In-room distractions include Nintendo Wii and iPod docks; the spa has a sauna, steam room, and Japanese wellness area.
The hotel reception offers the free use of a laptop.
The minimalist, white-and-gray interiors have a space-age vibe, with floor-to-ceiling windows and unique design touches that include bathtubs or sinks integrated into the rooms.
The bathrooms vary and depending on the room category, you may have the sink or bathtub right next to the bed, which may a concern for those who want a bit more privacy. Some rooms have showers.
Packing a designer punch, the futuristic bright-red lobby flows continuously into the all-red Fox Bar, with modular, curved leather seating.
Exquisitely designed, the spa features unique spaces like a "Sand Room," a cocoon-like room with heated loungers set on fine white sand, and a special Japanese washing station.
Mornings, the Fox Bar serves a breakfast buffet; for lunch and dinner, there’s a small but tasty menu of contemporary and classic Thai dishes prepared by native Thai chefs.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Breakfast is not included in the room rate.
Chill out next to the gas fireplace in the lobby’s Fox Bar with a cocktail, including signature drinks featuring Asian ingredients like lemongrass and coriander. In warmer weather, enjoy your libations out in the pretty backyard garden.
The hotel is on a quiet street off the bustling shopping boulevard Ku’damm and near leafy Savignyplatz, ringed by trendy bars and restaurants. The U-Bahn at Uhlandstraße or S-Bahn at Savignyplatz are about a five-minute walk.
For a casual meal of traditional German cuisine, pop by Dicke Wirtin (6-minute walk), or to satisfy late-night cravings, Schwarzes Café (5-minute walk) serves sandwiches, omelets, wiener schnitzel and more around the clock. Locals flock to the rustic tables and chairs of Jules Verne (7-minute walk) to enjoy the wallet-friendly French menu.
An extensive cocktail list and friendly bar staff make Hefner Bar (4-minute walk), on leafy Savignyplatz, a local favorite. The diminutive Bar Zentral (10-minute walk), tucked inside the arch of the S-Bahn, has a cool, curved tile ceiling and excellent, affordable cocktails.
