The Circus Hotel
Ranked #10 of 634 Hotels in Berlin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 October 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Circus Hotel for three nights in September. I can see why this hotel is rated #1 in Berlin! The hotel was perfectly located in Rosenthaler Platz in a vibrant area of Berlin. Stepping right out the door there was a huge variety of take away and sit down cafes. (The Chinese place next to the hotel was awesome - can't remember the name!). The room was chic, modern, clean and big for European standards. We had the Double Room. We had breakfast at the hotel every morning, and it was fresh and a lovely sit outside in the courtyard in the mornings. The staff was very helpful, calling a taxi for us, giving us information on tours (take the Brewer's Berlin tour!), and even supplying a band aid after a nick with the razor. Berlin is an awesome city, and The Circus Hotel fits right in. I plan on returning to the Circus Hotel many times!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are very quiet!

We just got back (September, 2011) from a 6 day stay at the Circus Hotel in Berlin. The hotel lived up to all the wonderful recommendations here on TripAdvisor. The location is perfect, our junior suite was spacious, and the staff is absolutely wonderful. Breakfast at the hotel's restaurant Fabish was also excellent. The only drawback would be that the hotel rooms have no air conditioning, although they do supply a strong fan. This was no problem for us since we were there in September, but I would think twice about staying there in July or August.

There was some street noise during the night, but it wasn't a major problem.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very happy. The staff couldn't be more helpful and the rooms were clean and modern with a good touch of style. A Metro station is just outside which is very useful for travelling around the city although Alexandraplatz is a pleasant 15 minute stroll away. I would not hesitate in recomending this hotel to others.

Tremendous stay at the Circus Hotel. Super clean, modern and right in the heart of it all. Reception has great knowledge of all the fun events and alerted us of an amazing soccer game at the Berlin's Olympic stadium. An amazing experience. The hotel has an amazing location right beside the subway and tons of restaurants. Our room was unique with a view of the main street with all the amenities needed. We loved the bathroom.

I love little arty, quirky things. Circus Hotel is this and perfect service. We were instantly greeted by the loveliest girl at the desk, who introduced us to all of their services, gave us a map and gave us all the information on Berlin we needed, and then let us check in early. The room was immaculate and gorgeous- I absolutely love the design!

You should definitely eat at the restaurant- buffet was amaaaaaaaaaazing (bircher muesli delicious! And the jam. YUM!) and the dinner was excellent too. Perfect hotel, and I'm sad that it's so hard to find something similar anywhere else!

All of the staff were absolutely lovely and the location was great. I cannot say anything bad about this place!

The first impression is always the most important and at The Circus Hotel you are greeted by very friendly and helpful front desk staff. They go out of their way to ensure that everything is just the way that you want it and they do it with a genuine smile. They tell you that they love Berlin and want their guests to love Berlin too. They will organize all sorts of sight seeing trips and help with getting tickets. Their idea of a subway pass for 4.50 EUR a day is so very helpful. The hotel has all sorts of rooms with different themes, the beds have nice crisp white sheets, very clean bathrooms with a large shower and lots of hot water. There are fans in the room and thye windows open. We spent 5 nights at the Hotel and always felt very comfortable coming back. The restaurant has a small selection of meals but they are high quality. We spent one afternoon with very tired and sore feet sitting in the back courtyard eating lunch and then drinking a pot of tea for over two hours and it was so very relaxing. The location is perfect for using the extensive subway system. Berliners are very nice people who often came up to us to offer directions or to translate while we were trying to mail home souvenirs. Wonderful hotel, city and people!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the courtyard rather than the busy road. There will be smokers but hop...
