“Well-priced, well located hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in a Junior Suite at the Circus Hotel. We were most impressed with the cleanliness and size of our room and got a great 'vibe' from this hotel. Staff had a great knowledge of Berlin and were more than happy to offer helpful suggestions on what to see/ where to eat, etc. We thought the room was fantastic value for Berlin as the location couldn't be faulted. The U-bahn and tram run right by the hotel and there are plenty of places to eat and drink a short stroll from the hotel. We'll definitely stay here again!

My Fiance and I stayed at the Circus Hotel for 3 nights and probably should have stayed a few more. The Hotel is within walking distance to many attractions in Berlin. The rates the Hotel provides are excellent for those seeking value, comfort and cleanliness. It really is the perfect place to stay while visiting Berlin. The Hotel has built up a good reputation so my advice to those seeking a stay at the Circus Hotel would be to book ahead with plenty of time to insure their is availability.

Room Tip: If you are looking for less noise from the streets, book a room with the lounge area view.

This hotel, in the heart of Berlin, offers a fresh and very friendly option for those looking to stay in the city centre.
In the UK it would be classed as a boutique hotel. It is such a welcome change from the large multi national hotels that dominate most city centre stays.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the buffet breakfast is wholesome with a wide range of locally sourced fresh foods.
If you are there for the Christmas markets the location is excellent. Will go back.

Stayed here with another couple from the 8-11 December. The hotel is in a fantastic location and the staff are amazing. We had one of the three room apartments, so had a bedroom per couple, plus a seating area and kitchen/diner which worked great for us. The kitchen was well stocked with fridge, coffee machine and dishwasher.
The only two (small negatives) were that the sitting area didn't quite seat 4 of us - could do with a small armchair, and the double bedroom didn't have a bedside table on one side of the bed.

We spent three days in the Circus Hotel in December. I had very high expectations based on the Tripadvisor info, but I worried that those expectations might be too high. They were not! Perfect location, very friendly and helpful staff and a wonderful place to start your day exploring Berlin and to return to when you are tired of everything you saw in this wonderful city.

Tip: Definitely take the subway in front if the hotel to the Bernauer Strasse. It is only one stop (you could even walk there) and you can get a good feeling of what the Berlin Wall was all about. Take your time while you are there and soak up the atmosphere. We were there while it was cold and snowing, which added to the experience.

Room Tip: People tend to smoke in the courtyard, and sometimes you can smell this in the rooms at the back-sid...
