Great value hotel with heaps of character
Had a great stay at Hotel Q - rooms are comfortable and the hotel has a great vibe, with a reasonably priced and delicious restaurant and bar serving modern Thai-inspired cuisine. Staff were helpful and friendly. Located in Charlottenberg, it's not really near the main tourist attractions of Berlin - however, the location is in the heart of a nice shopping/entertainment district, and is extremely well connected to public transport (as are most places in Berlin) by an S-bahn station at Savignyplatz and U-bahn at Uhlandstrasse, so it's a very quick ride into the main attractions. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed, however those who are sensitive to noise/temperature should note that many hotels in Berlin (including this one) run centralised air conditioning which only works between certain temperatures - therefore you may end up having to leave the windows open all night, and Berlin can get quite noisy on weekend nights. (I visited in early summer - this wouldn't be a problem in winter!). But if this doesn't bother you, this is a great hotel and I highly recommend it - I would definitely stay again!
