This is one of the hotels we've most enjoyed visiting. The location, on the former East German side, is great, within easy walking distance to local restaurants, Alexanderplatz, the museum island and several S- and U-bahn stops. The front desk staff was quite friendly. The room was spacious, well furnished and quiet. The rate we paid was very reasonable. You... More

We arrived very late on our first evening due to the breakdown of our train from Amsterdam. We were made to feel very welcome and were advised the restaurant was still open so we could have a much needed meal - asparagus and scrambled eggs and beers - wonderful. The room was small, but modern and little funky. Bathroom was... More

Conveniently located right outside a U-Bahn exit (don't mistake it for the Circus Hostel over the road - easy to do), the Circus feels like a very Berlin hotel. Cool, confident and just a little bit different. I arrived about 11am and after about a half hour wait (during which time I had breakfast in the restaurant) I was able... More

Travelling with my sister we stayed for five nights, doing it fairly thrifty. Highly recommended. The friendly staff throughout make all the difference, always willing to help and good advice for getting around the city. The location is pretty good, but Berlin public transport is very easy anyway. Some great restaurants nearby though. All in all highly recommend for cleanliness,... More

We were in the apartments (in the hostel building) which were fab and then moved to the hotel, the apartment is big and really modern and the hotel rooms were spotless. The staff were ever helpful, and efficient in a calm and casual way. The breakfast is super healthy, and we ate in the restaurant (in the hotel) also which... More

I stayed here for five nights in January during a month long trip throughout Europe and over the course of that month, I stayed in eight different places - this was by far, the best place I stayed. Its literally right above the Rosenthaler Platz stop and is within walking distance to everything but of course, public transport in Germany... More

Very comfortable room and great shower (usually it is a problem in Europe). The breakfast was delicious and healthy. The decor is really cool and fun. We had to change our reservation for a bigger room and they were very helpful with that, giving us an apartment, where I wouldn't mind live. I loved the hotel and for sure would... More

If you looking for a nice hotel with well designed rooms great crew and worm atmosphere in the best location (Mitte). Don’t think twice, this is the place (I chose him twice!!) Near the hotel you can find very nice restaurants and pubs.

Quite a trendy, hip hotel that when first walking down the hallway to your room can be a little unusual as the floor we were on was only lit up by red lighting. The room itself was very clean and cool with a big printed comic strip above the bed head, however quite small with only the one sided access... More

This is our second stay at Circus Hotel. The staff and service are superb and the rooms are immaculate. You will find the staff very helpful and knowledgeable to help make your visit enjoyable. The location is very convenient as the metro station Rosenthaler Platz (U8) is right around the corner from the hotel. There are many cafes and shops... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
