Michelberger Hotel, Berlin, Germany $$$$
Tel: 49 30 297 78590
Concierge.com's insider take:
The Michelberger aims to combine two of Berlin's cultural drivers (high design and nightlife on the cheap) into one budget hotel. Architect Werner Aisslinger was commissioned to maximize space efficiency in each of the 119 rooms in order to allow guests to bunk up in groups of two, four, or more (the largest room sleeps eight). Loft beds take advantage of unused headroom, and the flexibly arranged spaces are done in inexpensive but attractive materials: matte woods, rope ladders to connect the rooms' different levels, poured concrete floors. It all feels creative (rather than cheap), and the whole place has a buzzing, interconnected vibe, due largely to the bar and a basement rock and dance club. (The club opened first and became a Saturday-night staple before the hotel was even completed.) Across the street is the Warschauer Strasse subway station and tram stop—the terminus of the M10, a.k.a. the "party train" that connects many of Berlin's night spots.—Ralph Martin
