Although there were mass protests in the streets when we arrived across the huge multi-transport cross roads, in the shape of about 5,000 people rallying against the G8 summit, it was clear very quickly that the location is fantastic - in terms of distance to the airport and other transport hubs, as well as a pleasant walk into the best...

My girlfriend booked a Junior Suite to give us a bit more space which we almost didn't need. I was a bit put-off by the name but was immediately won over by the genuine warmth of the desk person who was more than appropriately sympathetic when my friend's flight was delayed. The Rosenthaler Platz metro stop is literally steps from... More

Really enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely and very well designed. Very helpful staff and great location. Easy to get to the city as well as the airport. Nice surrounding restaurants and good for nearby shopping. Would stay again!

Generally we found this hotel ok. We had a nice, spacious room, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good. We had a dinner there also and it was very good.

We loved this hotel!! Very helpful/friendly staff at the desk and in the restaurant/bar! Right by the subway...somewhat noisy but worth it!! Amazing clean room and bathroom!! Loved our stay here!!!! You can get to so many fun locations from here! Short taxi ride from Tegel airport.

Stayed two nights at the Circus Hotel where we were only met with friendly staff, nice atmosphere and very approachable. Can highly recommend it and only reason it's not getting 5 out of 5 is that it lived up to my expectations though still the best basic hotel I've visited in Berlin. No luxury, just good.

My circumnavigating techniques are terribly poor! But getting to this hotel from Schoenefeld airport Berlin was easy. Plus they gave me the directions. Fab airy room with magnificent wifi! An enormous open style cafe restaurant with great staff open till late & they catered to my weird & wondrous food quirks without batting an eyelid. They have a 24 hour... More

Room comfortable, good bathroom, service was great, wifi etc... More
