The hotel is in a perfect location. Our room was comfortable and clean. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. But, spend the extra money and get a room facing the inner courtyard. We stayed in July when the weather was hot. There isn't air conditioning, so you have to open the window. Unfortunately there was a 24 curry stand directly under our window. We didn't sleep all night.

We stayed at the Circus Hotel for 3 nights. The room was clean and modern and the bed was comfortable. There is no AC but our room had a fan in it that was able to cool the room down pretty quickly at night. We really liked the location, it's in a nice area and the Underground station is only 1 stop away from Alexanderplatz. Very convenient. Overall we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Would not recommend the Breakfast. The food was good but the selection was very poor, there are many...

This was a pleasant hotel to stay in during a short weekend trip to Berlin with a friend. The location is great, a short walk from the Hackesche Hofe shops, and the Mitte sights. The rooms were generally comfortable and clean; and the bar & courtyard area looked very nice although we hardly used them, so much else to explore...

However, there was no air conditioning in the room we were in, and on a hot & humid weekend we had to open the windows to avoid suffocating in the night; which meant (as we were at the front) it was very noisy. So since we mainly returned to the hotel to dump shopping and sleep, it didn't really fulfill the sleep part...

Room Tip: Avoid room 311 - no aircon and on the front

We've stayed at The Circus from July 25th to 29th. The hotel is perfectly located with a metre (u8, rosenthaler platz) just across the main door of the hotel. The neighbohoord is livelwly with plenty of great restaurants and cafe. All the main attractions are at a walking distance or within a short ride of metro. The Circus even offers public transportation pass to rent at a minimal cost.

Staff are amazing: our first room eas a bit noizy, being of the first floor of a busy street. They kindly offered us a better room the next day, without any problems. They were extremely helpfull in getting us to the places we wanted to visit.

Last but not least - the breakfast worth the 9 euros. Great buffet with plenty of quality/organic produce.

Overall, amazing time in Berlin mainly because of the Circus and its staff.

I was incredibly pleased with my stay at the Circus Hotel. I chose this hotel based on a recommendation in the Rick Steves guidebook. It was a perfect end to my two week tour of Germany. The location was ideal for sightseeing in Berlin, not in an overly touristy area but close to all the major sites. Each staff member that I interacted with was very friendly and helpful. I appreciated the added security measures and 24-hour reception staff. I found my room to be spotlessly clean and none of the fixtures or fabrics were excessively worn. I particularly enjoyed the design of the hotel. I found it to be a refreshing change from the typical hotel design. I also found the wiki site and magazine to be very useful in choosing places to eat and things to do. Although I did not get the chance to take advantage of these (I arrived too late for the street art walking tour unfortunately) I liked that these sorts of things were offered. These added amenities really impressed me and in my opinion set this hotel apart from many others. I hope to return to Berlin someday soon and would absolutely chose this hotel again.

This was a great hotel for our one night family stay on our vacation to Europe. Both of our rooms faced on the inner courtyard, 2nd and 3rd floors. The rooms were bright and clean. The staff was quite helpful and spoke fluent English. The breakfast was good and fresh.

Chose the Circus hotel for 5 nights for a recent city break to Berlin primarily for its location. Very well appointed room, clean and tidy, if just a tad on the small side. Very helpful staff to assist in booking trips and restaurant reservations. Just 2 U-Bahn stops from Alexander Platz and within easy walking distance to a host of nearby restaurants and bars. The hotel bar is spacious and comfortable for planning the next days activities..
