Berlin’s Coolest and Most Unique Hotel

Accommodation Destinations Germany
Welcome to Berlin's coolest, most unique and quirky hotel: Michelberger Hotel. Click through to read more...
Welcome to Michelberger Hotel a.k.a. the coolest* hotel in the world. If you haven’t heard of this place before you are seriously missing out. I think I found it on Tumblr over two years ago and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. And I’m preeetty sure this post will have the same effect on you. I hope. (*maybe not the coolest but the coolest I’ve stayed at)


Michelberger Hotel is the ultimate trendy urban paradise, a raw reflection of youthful hedonism and creativity. I mean…. even their website dares to be different! The hotel is a converted warehouse with concrete walls, where very loud music is played and it’s quite dark and grimy. In short Michelberger pays homage to its wacky home city. Anyway, I’ll shush with all these elaborate, edgy descriptions and let the photos do the talkin’.





Whilst choosing which room to go for (there are so many different styles) we opted for the loft room, because come on, what’s not to love about an elevated netted super king-size bed!? Not only was the bed on a whole other level (literally) but it was incredibly comfy, I could just melt into the mattress. The room screamed “hygge“: it was Scandi inspired, simplistic and oh-so-cosy. You can see what the room looks like properly on one of my Instagram photos.


Aside from the elephant in the room we were surprised by all the other cool features the room offered which we didn’t even notice in the website’s photos. The huge windows were a special favourite of mine. These were covered with gorgeous thick mustard curtains. There is also a sofa which can be used as a bed to accommodate a third person and a telly we didn’t watch. The clothes storage was also unique; the “drawers” were netted hammocks, just like the bed.



Michelberger also integrated comedy into the room. There was a non-smoking sign which read “Please no smoking anywhere indoors because the smoke alarms will freak out and then the fire service will turn up and you really don’t want to deal with a pissed off German fireman who has got all his equipment out for a false alarm”. There was also a dirty laundry bag which had “For dirty thoughts” written on it where each of the letters was made up of underwear.


The ‘Please Do Not Disturb’ sign pictured below sums Michelberger up. Because who doesn’t want to be “pissing on the carpets”, “surfing space-time” and “hiding from the cops” whilst in Berlin?!






Michelberger is a bar, restaurant, beer garden, lounge, hotel, all in one. The communal areas are for travellers, digital nomads and locals alike, making it the perfect place to make friends. The hotel really has a community spirit to it. My only regret about my time at Michelberger was not spending enough time downstairs in the bar/restaurant. We were so busy exploring the city to even consider it… and when we weren’t, we were passed out in our room. We didn’t get the full taste of Michelberger which is why I really want to return one day.


In the middle of the hotel lies a huge courtyard and bar, lined with colourful flags, fairy lights and various hand-picked knick knacks. The courtyard doubles as a beer garden and serves as the perfect hotspot for a chilled, yet fun, night in Berlin.



The cafe serves lots of healthy homemade sandwiches, cakes and juices, and has a separate restaurant which uses only organic ingredients. Again, I didn’t get to try out any of the food here but I’ve only heard positive things. It really is the perfect place for digital nomads who need a space to get work done on their laptop, whilst soaking up the cosy, vibrant atmosphere of the hotel.


So, have you visited Berlin before? If so, where did you stay? If I ever visit Berlin again I will run straight back into the loving arms of Michelberger Hotel. I really wanna try out some of their other room designs, especially the Hideout room. If you need any tips or recommendations for a future visit, head straight on over to my jam packed city guide!

    I have a good friend that lives in Berlin so I always have a free bed if I want to visit, but your pictures are making me lust after this hotel for sure. I love the bed, and the do not disturb sign on the door is beyond adorable!
