This is a great hotel and handy for tube etc. Checking in took only a moment. Show a passport and you were given the keys to the room straight away. The key to the room also operated the lifts which prevented strangers from wandering around the hotel. The shower in the room was large spacious and lots of water pressure. Just what you need after walking around Berlin! We had breakfast at the hotel which included cereals, yoghurts, boiled eggs and fresh fruit, cheese and bread all washed down with unlimited coffee and a glass of orange juice. This was just 8 Euros per person and well worth it. There is a guide to Berlin in the room with a pull out map for seeing the sights. This we found very useful. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had rrom 103 which was on the first floor. Looked out on to the road but we were not disturbed

From the minute we stepped in the door of this hotel we were over whelmed by the friendlyness of the staff, so helpful too. Our room was at the front of the hotel by the lift. I can honestly say there was very little noise either from the road, tram, underground or lift. The room was clean, good sized with a lovely hot shower en suite. The breakfast was good too. I loved having the cafe and bar downstairs. The bar area is very cosy and inviting. I would definitely use this hotel again. Excellent value for money.

We stayed at The Circus Hotel in Berlin for 2 nights. It is a great value for the cost! The location is very convenient, it is only a short walk to most sights, but if you prefer, the U station is right outside the door. On top of that, you are in the center of Prezlauer Berg which is very trendy with loads of restaurants, cafes, and bars.
We had a room on the first floor facing the very busy Rosenthaler intersection, but the windows must be very well sealed because we never had any issue with the noise from the road. And, you can look out and see all the goings and comings of the locals.
The room itself was not huge, but very comfortable. The bathroom was big and the hot water very hot. They offer free WiFi, and are very conscious of the environment. The amenities that they offer are all vegan, and you get from the lobby what you need.
All in all we found the location to be fantastic and everyone we came across was very helpful and pleasant. We highly recommend it!

The Circus Hotel has elements of a hostel but only ever in a good way. Friendly, helpful staff who got us our room when we checked in at lunchtime and offered to look after our bags when we had a flight later than the 12 noon check-out; no porters to have to tip.
As opposed to a hostel, the room was spacious and comfortable, well-kept and (our room anyway) was quiet.
The hotel is right beside the U-Bahn station so easy to get to (if you come out of the right exit - otherwise it's still only about 2 minutes walk).
Restaurant was excellent, with a good value and reasonably well-stocked buffer for breakfast and a small menu for dinner but excellent food with massive portion sizes. Also great place for good coffee, just what we needed after exploring a long section of what's left of The Wall on the day we arrived.
We had a junior suite at 110€ per night which was quiet and well-proportioned, with a lovely shower room.
If I came to Berlin again (which I may well do), there would be no reason not to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of a corridor, and overlooking the courtyard (to reduce noise, otherwise y...

Excellent hotel, in great location for all the major sights of Berlin. Easy to get to from the airport, followed the directions off their website and had no problems in locating the hotel. We had a junior suite overlooking the courtyard and it was fantastic. The shower was superb, room was clean, couldn't fault any of it. The bar/dining area was lovely, especially after a long day sightseeing. Breakfast was very good too. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Wonderful.

This hotel is located right by the Rosenthaler Platz U-bahn station. It was very convenient. Bed was comfortable and there was a small fan in the room which was helpful. Breakfast was delicious although not cheap. Other places to eat nearby(Donner Kebab, oriental places). Staff was friendly and helpful. Only negative was our room was right above the courtyard where you could eat and smoking was allowed outside. If our window was open, the smoke came right in.

Room Tip: If you plan to have your window open, make sure your room is not above the courtyard.

Obviously 5 stars across the board is a tall order, but for a non-chain hotel, the Circus Hotel in Berlin, checke all the right boxes!

Very clean, very friendly, very well located, it was an absolute pleasure.

We had the double room, and after a day of sightseeing it was a welcomes retreat.

The morning breakfast was very fairly priced and delicious! Do eat here ...

Alas only thing that would've nice is a hot tub/pool for the cold Berlin nights, but I suppose you can't have everything.

Definitely coming back!
