“Great base for exploring Berlin”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We've just had 3 nights at Circus and were delighted. The room was not huge but finished to a high standard and great value. The staff were friendly and helpful and provided lots of good information on all aspects of our stay. The location is great, within walking distance of the many of the main tourist sights and on good public transport routes. The hotel bar restaurant has a good vibe and was a great place to drop into after a hard day walking round the city.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the road

We stayed here in December and we were very pleased with our choice. This was our first trip to Berlin and we relied on TA reviews when choosing the Circus Hotel. We had a double room several floors up facing the courtyard and it was of adequate size, clean, comfortable and quiet. Towel warmers in the bathroom were an added treat. The hotel has a nice indoor/outdoor breakfast area in the Restaurant Bar Fabisch. Breakfast was reasonable, good and healthy, although there were no hot items to choose from. The Restaurant Bar Fabisch was a nice place to relax with a glass of wine after wearing out our shoes during the day. Be sure to ask for soaps from the counter when checking in. In my opinion they go a little over the top in trying to practice conservation but give them credit for for the effort, so again, ask for soap! Free wi-fi. They "rent" metro cards which is a good deal. Ask for one when checking in. There seemed to be only one small elevator so during busy times the elevator availability may be a problem. All forms of transportation just steps from the hotel. Give the Circus Hotel serious consideration when staying in Berlin!

Room Tip: It's probably quieter on a higher floor facing the courtyard.

stayed here with my boyfriend for 2 nights. Really good location, underground outside the front door, staff were great and really helpful. very clean.
breakfast is a buffet, nice but maybe a little expensive, lots of places around. Berlin wall is walking distance. Resturant is really good! music some nights, worth checking
I would say the easiest way to get here is by taxi, about £20 euro, busses are quite difficult to track down.

Room Tip: Go to the Zoo!

My boyfriend and I visited Berlin in September and stayed at this hotel. The location was perfect and access to the metro couldn't have been easier!! We stayed in a juniour suite and were pleasently surprised when we were given a room with a roof terrace!
The staff are fantastic and were really friendly. I would recommend doing the graffitti self tour as it takes you to places you wouldn't necessarily go as slightly off the beaten track. Great hotel, lovely staff, and amazing value for money. We will definetly be coming back in the future and staying at Circus!! My only complaint is there was a horrible picture in the room which we took down for our stay - the staff should perhaps consider not having a painting of a child who has been shot through the head staring at you when you try and sleep!!

Room Tip: Stay in room 302!!

We stayed in this hotel for four nights over a weekend. The location is spot on for walking to most of the historical places and right beside an underground station. There is also a taxi rank around the corner. The room was excellent and clean and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was good and the bar at nigh time had some good live music. Plenty of good restaurants including a brilliant Chinese fresh dumpling bar.

Room Tip: all bathroom shampoo and gel at reception only

You couldn't ask for a better location for a Berlin hotel- close enough to everything but surrounded by more local restaurants and a lovely cycling distance from Berlin's famous sights. The staff are always friendly and accommodate any request, the bar downstairs serves a great G&T and the rooms are perfect! Stay at Circus if you're heading to Berlin.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Circus hotel but there is something that I cannot put my finger on that left me a tad disappointed. Possibly it was just my sky high expectations based on the reviews.

The hotel is ideally situated in Mitte which is the perfect base to explore the entire city. The bar/coffee shop in the Hotel is in keeping with the area, very fashionable, understated and generally trendy. The free iPads are a nice touch. The staff where friendly and generally eager to help.

I was a bit disappointed by the room. While it was clean, it was a bit small and bare for a hotel of this standard.
