“Cool hotel with excellent design”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Travelled to Berlin with a group of friends for a long weekend stay. After arriving late due to flight diversions, we found it very easy to get to. Good location for transport links and amenities close by. Met with very helpful and bright staff, the cafe/bar is a great place to relax and with music/entertainment playing most of the time. The rooms are very cool, modern and bright! Fantastic design throughout the hotel. Would certainly recommend to anyone travelling to Berlin!

This is my second time at this hotel and once again it was fantastic. Well located in hip East Berlin just by Warschauer Platz (apologies for misspelling) the Michelberger is close to great cheap eateries (including many vegan friendly ones), well located for exploring the East Side gallery, and is an easy bike ride from lots of the main sites. The hotel plays the Big Lebowski on monitors 24/7 which is way cool Dude, and they even serve a soy based White Russian for us vegan dudes. Breakfast is amazing value and quality (although a soy yoghurt to go with the soy milk would be a nice addition), staff are friendly, the rooms are comfortable and light. If you're lucky enough to be there for major events then the courtyard is often used for communal bbqs which is a way of meeting Berliners and getting a feel for life is this great city.

Room Tip: Book early online for a great deal. The cosy rooms are great for one but if you are staying awhile g...

This hotel is very sure of itself, and welcomes you to enjoy comfort rather than luxury. It won’t be to everyone’s tastes. The Michelberger, a former East Berlin factory, feels like a houseshare, but with a cleaning staff and a full service restaurant that serves a delicious hot breakfast buffet. Everyone is friendly. The location is ideally located for either sight seeing in Mitte or vintage shopping in Kreuzberg. The café / bar runs 24 hours a day, staffed by people who don’t seem to be so much working as doing some stuff while they hang out together. Mysteriously, the open space lobby and café /bar never gets either too empty or too crowded. Cozy king size beds, small but clean and comfortable rooms, and plenty of hot water & towels, essentials for the weary Berlin tourist.

Room Tip: Rooms are on the small side - so ask for a larger room if space is important for you.

First time travellers to Berlin, my friend and I stayed at the Michelberger for two nights (no extra costs to get twin beds was a plus). With little knowledge of neighbourhoods, we picked a hotel within our price range from a booking website and we were surprised by how great the choice was. The hotel is in a really convenient location for both sightseeing in the day and going out at night.

The staff were more than friendly, and the cafe/bar in the lobby and the courtyard are great places to decompress or start the evening. The hotel even comes with it's own maps with eating/drinking/shopping recommendations.

We had a loft room and it was clean, comfortable and interesting; the shower is fantastic. I hope I get to stay here the next time we're in Berlin. The one thing is the rooms don't have safes but worth asking about at the front desk.

Room Tip: Loft rooms have a fun layout.

Travelled to berlin last week and stayed in Michelburger hotel with my family. This year alone myself and my siblings have travelled world wide and all agreed it was the best hotel we'd ever stayed in. The rooms were really cool, clean and spacious, the breakfast was really good and good value for money. the food in the bar is also very nice and the staff are very friendly. the general vibe is very relaxed and laid back. Suitable for Families, couples and friends its very close to the S and U lines on the train and in walking distance to many attractions. Would recommend to anyone, worth every penny!

The Michelberger is a great place to stay in Berlin, especially for the 20s-40s age group.

I've stayed there three times now and each time has been excellent.

It's got a great, friendly, and relaxing bar and coffee-lounge space downstairs to relax in during the day or evening, a lovely courtyard in the summer and fantastic German breakfasts.

Both the U-bahn and S-bahn stops are opposite the hotel (in addition to the tram) which makes it a really convenient base from which to explore the city.

If you like street-art, keep walking past the U-bahn stop and go down the metal stairs after the grassy verge...there is a huge warren of street-art, a skate park, climbing walls, cafes and clubs all in this area and it's really interesting to explore.

Room Tip: Loft room or band room are the best.

We stayed for 3 nights in early September and had such a great time. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The hotel itself is beautifully designed with lots to look at and and a really cool unique feel. The atmosphere is amazing and the food and drinks there are great and really well priced. The rooms are really unique and always spotless. We thoroughly enjoyed it there, could have stayed for much longer and will be back again. Loved it!
