Michelberger or “the hippest hotel ”(its official status) is probably the most stylish from the budget hotels,  being the right place for creative people. And it is opened by very creative peole (enough to see their internet page).  Hotel has a touch of “unfinished” space that  fits perfectly to permanent “under construction” Berlin state, and it is a typical for Berlin  combo of ex-industrial loft with minimal design. The  lobby has an aura of a club and reflects the collagy character of this residence.

The rooms are spacy and full of light, among the offers are a 10-er WG(flat-share)-Loft- space for a music band, for example, cozy chalet-like rooms or thematic suits. The individualized rooms are decorated with numerous fancy vintage items.

The hotel also features the best possible location for party people or for those tracing the remainings  of  Berlin wall: right in the heart of Freidrichshain, next to the Oberbaumb bridge. Hotel includes conference space, bier-garden- party grounds, bistro, stages and sound rooms

The prices are surprising :

Hotel AMANO*

Amano has landed in the middle of the Berlin gallery-mile, Augustsrt, so by mid-night all “In”- and artsy people are conveniently concentrated in the melted chocholade-coloured bar. The building is crowed by a garden on top and has a quiet patio. Special features: bike to rent,  personal trainer of yoga or a massage assistant, vending machine selling rain-coats or  photo-cameras, audioguide on Berlin on iPod and dvds for rent. Guests certainly will appreciate a welcome kit “Berlin by night” :“condome-mints-dextrose” or alternatively, “sleep tight”  with a sleeping mask and earplugs and a tea-bag.

PROPELLER CITY LODGE *: care to try out a flying bed?

is indeed a contrast to th surrounding prim and neat Charlottenburg area. A point of inspiration, background for a photo-session, a shelter for an artistic being, it will definitely remain a highlight of your trip to Berlin. This  challenge for your senses and a magnet for philosophers” was opened by a sound-visual artist Lars Stroschen, already in 1997. Then there were 4 rooms, and now the space is  evolved into 30 unprecedented compositions and living installations: lion cage, a granny sleeping room, an “indian chicken curry”, forest shelter  or a prison cell..? The exploitation is not trivial, so that a guest gets an instruction along with the room key. Actually there is no lobby as such, so be precise to let know your arrival time, to get in.

The price is between 70 and 200€ (extra person- 15eur); WLAN is included, there is also a www-room.

Propeller City Lodge

Albrecht Achilles str. 58 (Charlottenburg)

The Arte Luise” hotel  is not only very artsy but also very central- 5min to Reichstag or to the Freindrichstr, respectively.  It is a later development from an artist landmark in DDR- here was a former artists club “The Sea-gull”, then artistic workshops,  till it was refurbished and turned into a hotel. Each room is stylishly decorated by modern  artists: “Alice in Wonderland, “Old Berlin” or “pop-art”, so it feels like staying in the modern art  museum.  A joint creation of  of ca 50 painters from Germany, Italy, France or Uzbekistan. The hotel is attached to a traditional (100 years old) winery.

To personalise the acquaintance with the art scene, one can book a specialised city tour with an artist- to explore Berlin with a painter, writer or an artist.
