The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The cocktails superb and breakfast was just right - as much or as little as you want, with excellent espresso coffee.
Our room overlooked the breakfast area and was lovely, quiet and comfortable.
There is a terrace at the top of the hotel, with great views, where you can have a nightcap or just relax.
Lots of transport next door and Alexander Platz is a short walk away.
We love this hotel.

Room Tip: Get an inside room overlooking the garden. There are apartments on the top which are great value to...

We had two rooms for our family of 4. We loved it and thought is was a SUPER value. Both our rooms overlooked the courtyard and were quiet with the windows open. Not sure how loud it would be if your room opened on to the street side. Location was great and free WIFi was good. There was a U stop and tram stop right at the corner. Staff all spoke English well and were VERY helpful with any question. There is a cute rooftop deck which has self serve drinks, but unfortunately we were unable to use this due to 3 days of rain. We only wish the hotel could offer AC as it was humid because of the rain, but we realize AC is not the standard in Germany. Would defiantly tell our friends to stay here.

Room Tip: Request a courtyard room.

My daughter and I just stayed 3 nights at the Circus over the weekend of August 9-10 and loved it! Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was well-designed, spacious and contemporary in decoration. Everything worked well, including the free wi-fi (after being a little fuss the first time we logged on) and the shower was the best I've experienced in Europe. Lots of nice little touches as well. For example, athough there was not air-conditioning, the hotel provided a large fan in the room, which, along with the two large operable windows, kept the room comfortable. We had a room on the 4th (top) floor overlooking the courtyard, and had no problems with late night noise. The hotel has a small, rooftop deck with an honor bar, making it a great place to unwind at the end of the day. Plus, my daughter took one of the morning yoga classes the hotel offered on the roof deck and enjoyed it. Breakfast was not included in our rate, but the 9 Euro continental breakfast the hotel provides in its restaurant/back patio was outstanding and a great value. The location of the hotel is excellent as well - close to the U-bahn as well as a streetcar stop, and near the trendy Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood as well as close to Mitte and Museum Island. Getting there from the Berlin Hauptbahnhof was an easy 10-minute ride on the #142 bus. All in all, I can't say enough good things about this hotel.
One last tip - Berlin is a very bike-friendly city and bikes are a good way to get between the various sights. The hotel does not rent bikes but its sister establishment, The Circus Hostel, located across the street, does, for 12 Euro a day. We rented bikes one day and they worked very well and it was easy to get around.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, choose a room facing the courtyard. We had 408 and it was lovely.

Fabulously located directly above uban stop, excellent breakfast - served until 1 pm and wonderfully comfortable beds, the Circus Hotel is the only place to stay in Berlin. Staff friendly & very helpful and food and cocktails worth a visit in their own right.

I spent 7 nights in the Circus Hotel , I would certainly stay here again . A great location , as many people have previously stated. Easy to get to from Tegel Airport , I landed at Tegel just after 3pm & arrived at the hotel at 4:30pm. Great shower , clean & comfortable room. I opted for the breakfast which I thought was good value. If your stay coincides with one of the trips the hotel organises I recommend going , I went on a free trip to the former Stasi Headquarters , a huge complex , the red carpeted corridors with busts of Lenin & Dzerzhinsky were very evocative of an era which came to an end in 1990. The hotel had 2 great bands , jazz & blues in the bar . I had a couple of meals at the hotel which were OK. The staff were helpful. I had a great week in Berlin & staying at the Circus certainly contributed to that.

This hotel is fab! Super-cool decor, super-helpful front staff, great location & a breakfast experience that CANNOT be beat! i would never ever think twice about recommending this to anyone looking to vacation in Berlin & not have the typical chain hotel experience. Very very highly recommended.
Only word of caution is that there is no air conditioning - this fact is mentioned numerous times on their website, but Berlin in the summer can be pretty toasty & i imagine this would prove to be a dealbreaker for some people.
Whatever you do, make sure you get breakfast. The selection is awesome, the servers are really friendly & helpful and the breakfast nook outside is so great!!
