We chose Berlin as it had an Intercontinental Hotel, however after ready the reviews we decided to stay at the Circus and was not disappointed. We arrived early and the receptionist was happy to check us in and for us to leave our bags. She also gave us some ideas of where to visit and also advice on travel which they rent travel cards for 4.50 euros a day for use on all of the Berlin transport system. We had booked breakfast for our stay, however we realised that we needed to leave before breakfast on our last day which we advised the reception staff and we were not charged. The breakfast was simple but ample, and the hotel was spotless. We are so pleased we chose to stay and would highly recommend this hotel. The location and staff made a really excellent break in Berlin. We would suggest booking direct with the hotel as this seems to be the cheapest alternative.

We stayed at The Circus on New Year's Eve 2013. The staff were amazingly friendly. The room we stayed in was simple, clean and very fit for purpose. The food was great. The breakfast was absolutely amazing, it was a buffet style. The location is great for seeing the city, public transport links. The bar and restaurant were very cool. All the staff follow the anticipatory service model, awesome. Thank you

We stayed here in October 2010 and I've just realised I didn't leave a review.

What can I say? It's a lovely, modern, spotless clean hotel and the staff are all lovely! We really enjoyed our stay here and we loved Berlin too. The breakfast was repetitive but was really nice. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We went out for dinner so I can't comment on that. Location was great and was within walking distance to various tourist points. If you are planning a trip to Berlin - I would recommend staying here! Can't wait to go back :-)

Clean Modern Design. Helpful Staff. What more could one ask for? This was our second visit, having stayed the previous year following the recommendation of a friend. Our first visit was outstanding, hence our return.

Taking into account the previous reviews our expectations were very high and we had some disappointment. The service is really superb, the coffee house is fun and the location is excellent.
However, there is no A/C in the rooms, only vents. This is not enough in the summer. To this one must be add that if your room is facing the street sleeping with open windows might be found very problematic. The street is very crowded and noisy 24 hours a day. In addition, there is only 1 elevator in the hotel, that in time get broken and force you to climb many steps in order to reach your room.
To sum, great hotel if you are not visiting in the summer.

Room Tip: Insist of getting a back yard room. You may find it crucial to your sleeping quality.

We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon trip. We arrived early getting on a bus from the train station. It was easy to find on the corner of a busy street. We were able to leave our bags until check in time and when we returned our room was ready, our bags already moved to our room. The room was quite large, with separate area for toilet and shower/dressing area. A hairdryer was available in the bathroom and plenty of towels.
A coffee maker was in the room however I had to ask for filter coffee and fresh milk as they do not provide anything else I was given a large bag of Coffee which then lasted our stay. I did not mind this but ended up drinking black coffee as I did not want to go down to reception when I had just got out of bed and wanted a coffee.
We did not have breakfast so can not comment on the food. There were plenty of cafes and street vendors nearby to grab breakfast for all tastes. A metro station is located outside the hotel with good links across Berlin. We used the Metro every day to get around all of the main attractions in Berlin. The service was very good and I would recommend a stay at this hotel.
