Very nice room at a reasonable rate. Staff was very nice and helpful. Answered our question and we got our hop on/off bus tickets at the front... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights at the Circus Hotel beginning of August - it's in a perfect location and the staff are really friendly. Their breakfasts outside in the courtyard and homemade gin at the bar was especially good :) Would stay here again.

I stayed at the hostel between from 12.8 to 18.8 in rooms 4 and 5 beds. The hostel is a combination of high standard guest house with a nice coffee shop and pub operating in the basement and have a small brewery. The quality of the facilities was very high. The hostel security level is very high and reduces the... More

Great rooms, really nice breakfast (homemade müsli - everything organic), fantastic location and very helpfull staff. Nice beds and a big shower. We had a room on the 4th floor, which gave us a great street view. Only minus is noise from the street(tramps and cars) Will return in near future!

This hostel was more like a hotel than hostel. It was clean and was cleaned everyday. My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights in a mixed dorm and the bunk beds were so comfy. There was no shortage of sockets which was really good and also a bedside lamp. It was only a short walk from the centre of... More

Seriously, it's a wonderful hotel in the heart of Berlin near all of the sites. It is also super convenient to public transportation with a U-bahn stop and trams steps outside. The rooms are in great condition as are the bathrooms. Modern, updated, and fresh. I stayed 7 nights on a recent visit. The staff is super helpful too. It... More

I just love this hotel! I have been coming here for a few years now. It is located in the Mitte area of Berlin, where much history was made over the years and where much is still being made, now in the form of lots to do, lots to see, lots to experience! This hotel is quite unique. It has... More

The Circus Hotel has the best combination of the social/fun atmosphere that I remember from staying at hostels, along with the peacefulness and amenities that i want now as an adult. The staff is really nice and helpful, and I didn't have much time in Berlin so I appreciated their local recommendations. They were honest about what places were touristy... 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.
