Friedrichshain, Berlin, Germany

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location in the trendy Friedrichshain neighborhood
  • Trendy hotel appealing to the young and hip crowd
  • Stylish, modern rooms with duvets, large windows, and flat-screen TVs
  • Unique room choices to accommodate different groups and tastes
  • Appealing lobby with lounge areas, books, and magazines
  • A buzzing bar scene with live music on most evenings
  • Big breakfast buffet served for a reasonable price
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Rooms (especially the Cosy Room) are small on space
  • Some showers have windows into the rooms and lack privacy
  • Street-facing rooms can be noisy
  • Breakfast not included in the rate

Bottom Line

The Michelberger Hotel is a trendy, budget-friendly option set in a former warehouse in the Friedrichshain neighborhood. Most of the 119 rooms have spare, modern decor; the exception is the Gold Room, which is decked out in an opulent, romantic style. Some of the rooms have exposed cement, big windows, and open showers, while others have bunk beds and can accommodate larger groups. Higher-end rooms such as the Chalet and Gold Rooms come with better amenities and artistic decor. A big breakfast buffet (for a fee) is served daily, and food and drinks can be ordered from the outdoor terrace. Highlights at this quirky hotel include a stylish lobby full of books and magazines and a bar with live DJs. The local neighborhood is full of more restaurants, bars, and nightlife.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A trendy neighborhood with restaurants and boutiques adjacent to Mitte

The Michelberger Hotel is located in Friedrichshain -- an up-and-coming, trendy part of town with an industrial background. For leisure travelers, the East Side Gallery is the nearest attraction, and there are several local restaurants, bars, cafes, and interesting boutiques within walking distance. For access to the rest of the city, the Warschuaer Station (U and S Bahn) is across the street, and it takes less than a half an hour to get to most major attractions.

Berlin is the capital and largest city in Germany, best known for its lively nightlife (restaurants and bars stay open late), cafes, museums, palaces, street art and numerous historic sights.
