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... More

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... More

You may have a hard time to find a similar quality for the same money. The rooms remain clean and nice, the staff friendly and the restaurant keeps on serving a good food. Its location is still hard to beat. When coming these days you have to note the lack of A/C in the entire hotel though. The wi-fi speed... More

We stayed at the Circus Hotel for four nights in mid-May. It was easy to reach from Tegel airport. The hotel is located on Rosenthaler Platz which is a transit hub for U-Bahn, Tram and Bus lines, so you are well-connected to explore Berlin. The hotel is modern and minimalist with friendly, efficient staff. Our room was on the 3rd... More

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 did find it a bit strange that you take shampoo from reception, that it wasn't in your room. I can understand why they do it but when you... More
