Berlin Michelberger Hotel: Stay in Style

Large arrow left

Berlin can make even the hippest Brooklyn hipster feel self-conscious. The city and its residents have an effortlessly edgy style. Staying at the Michelberger is one way to feel like you fit in and mix with the cool kids. Housed in an old factory in the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg borough on the east side of town, Michelberger offers simple, yet homey rooms—some with loft beds—at an affordable price. The lobby has a bohemian feel, with mismatched chairs and lamps made from books, and often turns into a party space in the evenings with live music and cheap cocktails. From $76.

This appeared in the August/September 2014 issue.
