friendly english-speaking staff, great free wi-fi, nice albeit small room with excellent bathroom & great smelling shampoo & body wash, illy coffee in the room, a safe with an electrical outlet in it for charging devices, nice restaurant & bar, located a couple kilometers from the train station, close to trendy restaurants & shops, reasonable price... what's not to love?

This The Circus Hotel is a "special" location with a "own" heart which is great. A good atmosphere, nice employees but what is missing in the room is a airco! They informed us and said: for only two months in the year we do not have an airco system but put a fan in each room. The hotel is located... More

Yes, we really enjoyed our week at The Circus. The room was a bit small and the hotel is not air-conditioned and it can be a bit noisy but this is a hotel to which we would not hesitate to return. I will review its affiliated restaurant, Fabrisch, separately and very favorably but here I will concentrate on the personnel... More

Has been fortunate enough to stay at both the circus apartments and this time at their circus hotel. Great location, super friendly staff and an overall feeling of efficiency. Economy rooms are a bit small but adequate if you just want a place to rest your head. I am definitely a circus convert.

The staff are very friendly and helpful pointing us in the right direction for tours we had booked and where any nice restaurants were located the hotel was clean and the room was a good size. The first thing we noticed when getting into our room was there was no air conditioning, and no fridge which was an issue for... More

A real surprise, very cosy and trendy hotel. All rooms are different, very well equipped (alas no air conditioning), very comfortable bathrooms. Great lounge with nice food and extensive bar choice, books, newspapers, wifi. Honest breakfast. Lovely garden terrace and rooftop terrace. Very friendly staff. I'd certainly go back. Located in a trendy neighbourhood, good restaurants nearby. On top of... More

The hotel was great, good room in a good location. The restaurant was very nice as was the rooftop patio. Staff was very informative and friendly and the hotel is located within walking distance of most major attractions. No AC in the room was a bit of an issue as the temp was close to 40 degrees during our stay.... More

I used to go to Circus every time I visited Berlin, but one thing that bugged me as a business traveller was the fact that the Internet was terrible in the rooms, and got even worse, to the point that it just failed to work on any of my devices (and I had never before experienced such issue, so it...

My wife and I spent four nights in this unique and very comfortable hotel. It is very close to Rosenthaler Platz UBahn station, which is a very central Berlin location. Our junior suite was very quiet, clean and comfortable, but with no air conditioning.We had a static fan, but the day temperature in Berlin was between 30-35 degrees each day... More

We stayed at this hotel the three last days of July. Great location, close to the Ubahn. Nice staff, good service, clean rooms and an ok breakfast. We asked for a quiet room high up, and that's what we got. I highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Berlin. The roof top terrace with a helpyourself-bar is worth a... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
