he Michelberger is a budget hotel in Berlin. Takes its name from the founder, Tom Michelberger, a 31-year-old from southern Germany. Tom is the central figure in a patchwork of friends who came together to create the hotel. With rates starting at 59 euros per night, the Michelberger falls into the budget hotel category and has been designed by the internationally renowned designer Werner Aisslinger. The 119 room hotel is located next to the Oberbaum Bridge and the river Spree. Five different room categories offer a range of different layouts. The rooms display a high level of space efficiency and lots of vertical drama and airiness – a feat allowed by the placing of loft bed areas above the bathrooms. Most rooms are for singles, couples and threesomes but other options including The Big One allow groups of 4 or even more to room together.
