Eclectic, Laid Back & Creative

Quickly becoming one of east Berlin’s favorite hangouts, the Michelberger Hotel is a creatively conceived and cooly executed remake of a 20th century factory. 

Originally redeveloped in 2009 together with designer Werner Aisslinger in collaboration with stylists Anja Knauer and Sibylle Oellerich, who were responsible for adapting the industrial spaces with an eclectic, laid back and artsy vibe.

London-based Jonathan Tuckey Design and Danish architect Sigurd Larsen have recently refreshed the lobby and guest rooms and undertaken a capsule concept focusing on a handful of suites on the fourth floor.

Intentionally minimalist yet “full of warmth, charm and humility”, the rooms have been designed with tactile materials in a variety of earth tones to appear at one within the industrial setting.

The lobby is the creative and social heart of the hotel, with funky low lying furnishings and decor, to encourage guests to linger over a book, play the piano and relax together.

The slightly gritty, alt-culture neighborhood is one of the city’s most vibrant and eclectic, and this independent boutique hotel in Berlin is an ignition point for east side culture.

Description

Located in the trendy Friedrichshain neighborhood on the east side of the Spree River, this independent boutique hotel in Berlin is becoming a favorite destination to stay and play in this up-and-coming area. 

Open, calm and infused with natural light, the new rooms on the fourth floor consist of two uniquely redesigned suites reinterpreted in wood, concrete and natural textile accents. Each can accommodate from two guests.

The cafe and restaurant feature organic seasonal products from the hotel’s farm in Brandenburg and they’ve created and developed two signature drinks: a bracing herbal schnapps and their own coconut water, Fountain of Youth.

During the warmer months the courtyard, lounge, cafe and bar host music and events while in  winter, the fire pits are lit in the courtyard for a cozy escape from the cold.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Fully staffed with restaurant, cafe and bar, and room service limited to certain rooms. Some rooms include minibar and kitchens, TV, bath amenities included.

Wifi throughout, small fitness room and yoga studio.

AROUND

Located in East Berlin’s Friedrichshain neighborhood on the banks of the   Spree River, the former industrial zone is quickly becoming a trendy-alt hotspot, with infamous nightlife and techno clubs (including the world-famous Berghain), many emerging restaurants, bars and a pedestrian friendly zone of boutiques and galleries near the leafy Boxhagener Platz.

Just over the historic Oberbaumbrücke, the longest standing stretch of the Berlin Wall – the East Side Gallery and Watergate are within a short walk. The  Warschauer Str. U Bahn across the street gives you excellent access to the rest of the city. 

Linked to the Kreuzberg district by the castle-like Oberbaum Bridge over the river, the Kreuzberg district is well known as the artistic heart and soul of the city and as the birthplace of ’alternativ kultur’ during the cold war. Today it’s considered a district of great diversity and a destination that values creativity, authenticity and open-minded modern life with a lively social, cultural scene. The famous street art and graffiti is as much a part of the neighborhood as the iconic food carts and stands and sidewalk cafes, where the daytime street culture gives way to a popular nightlife and music scene. 

The famous Turkish market along the canal is must see and the neighborhood is ideally laid out for walking and easily connecting with the rest of the city. 

Following long periods of turmoil and reunification, Berlin has emerged as a vibrant and modern city that is revitalized in spirit. The glamor is back, along with an edgy cultural renaissance that makes Berlin the capital of cool.
