On the eve of the opening of her showroom on rue de Seine, Fanny Boucher, co-founder of Gemmyo, welcomes me as her windows are being...
During our trip to Berlin we stayed at the Michelberger Hotel. Of course when we, French hear the name, we smile as we immediately remember the eponymous singer. In fact, all French people who stay at the hotel ask the same question: Is there any connection with Michel Berger? Answer: none at all. This hotel is atypical and wonderful both in its decoration and its spirit. You go in as if you were entering your home – there is no pressure, no reception desk. You feel free to walk in, even if only for tea. Some of the hotel customers meet there as if it were an extension of their office; others read a book before going to relax in their rooms. Although these rooms, at once beautiful and functional, might be tiny for some, they lack for nothing. We were able to meet with the charming Tom, hotelier and founder of the MichelBerger, and ask him a few questions.
Tom, tell us about you ?
We are independent entrepreneurs who try to maximise the quality in everything we engage with or relate to.

Warm, free, original, personal.

We are actually two co-founders. Nadine May and myself.
