The Factory Hotel

Künstlerheim Luise

Overnight in Fischerkietz
Honigmond Hotels



The hotel is in a five storey building that used to be a factory. It is right next to Schlesisches Tor U-Bahnhof (underground station) and the River Spree at the line between Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain where the two halves of the city meet. The unsophisticated charm of the brick building in the courtyard feels more like an alternative hotel than backpacker accommodation. There are 44 quiet spacious rooms which cost between 66 DM and 110 DM without breakfast. Double, three and four-bedded rooms cost between 93 and 144 DM. A dormitory bed is 30 DM. The breakfast cafe, “Cafe Eisenwaren” is linked with the hostel. Hot meals are also available in this lively friendly street cafe.
