Simply put, the Michelberger is effortlessly cool. It’s the epitome of Berlin: open, experimental, youthful, artistic and exciting. Owners Nadine and Tom opened the hotel in 2009 in a former 19th-century industrial building at the heart of bustling Friedrichshain, a stone’s throw from the river Spree. Throughout the hotel, high-end design is blended with local style, think blocky East-Berlin architecture, sleek Italian tiles and handmade glass chandeliers.
While rooms are oh-so-quirky-cool, with big wooden beds, bold industrial lighting and minimalist Danish design, they are just the cherry on the cake. The restaurant’s food is simply divine and the courtyard buzzes with electric energy: Berliners queue for the chance to get a table on Friday for dinner or Sunday for brunch. All ingredients are locally sourced, and dishes rotate depending on the season. And if that wasn’t enough, the Michelberger is perfectly placed for exploring Berlin, whether you want culture, history or dancing, you’ll find it on your doorstep.
Introducing Nadine and Tom!
“We wanted to create a destination, somewhere that was simultaneously cosy and cool, somewhere that would benefit both guests and locals, and somewhere that would go far beyond merely providing visitors a place to lay their heads.”
“The people here! Both the guests and our team! It’s such a beautifully diverse group who all add to the place. Plus both the availability of great food and our central location in Berlin are huge pluses!”
