“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

We booked the Circus Hotel based on the TA reviews, and it was better than we expected. The rooms are clean, quiet, with comfy beds and intriguing art. I am still trying to decipher the poem on the bathroom window. The shower was fantastic - hot water, strong pressure and over my head. The unexpected pleasure is the food. Fabisch serves contemporary organic food that is as beautiful as it is delicious. Jared the restaurant/bar manager (from Montana) will go out of his way to make your meal and stay exceptional. He also makes a mean martini. Nick (?) the Australian gave us many suggestions on which sites to visit and what to save for another trip. It was so much fun I can’t wait to go back.

Room Tip: A courtyard room will be quieter but the view is better on the street side.

We stayed in the hotel for a few days when we were in Berlin in Oct 2012. The hotel was great and our stay was awesome! While the room itself is small, the beds are comfortable and the the decor is modern and chic. We stayed on the 4th floor and the view was of the corner of the intersecting streets. The U line is right in front of the hotel along with buses and trams for easy public transportation. There are lots of small restaurants and bars all around the streets surrounding the hotel. There is no bathtub only a shower but the water pressure is amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the shower! The staff was the friendliest hotel staff in Germany (we stayed at 4 different hotels throughout our stay). Very warm and friendly and their willingness to help with recommendations or directions was unmatched. The personalized service is what impressed me the most staying here. I would highly recommend this hotel and I see why it's one of the top rated hotels in Berlin!

This was a great hotel very centrally located. If you are traveling with young children, beware of some nudity in the art they have in the room. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and overall a great short stay at the hotel. Service downstairs was very friendly and helpful.

I recently had a one week stay at the Circus Hotel, and I have to agree with the excellent reviews for this property. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the staff at breakfast were nice and courteous, I'd say the staff help make the hotel an outstanding place to stay. Even though my room was a single, the interior design of the room made it more spacious than it really was, my room had a nice, clean airy feel. The organic breakfast buffet is well worth the 8.00 euro per day (I pre-paid for a breakfast voucher). Breakfast was always a feeling and healthy affair each and every morning. To top it all off, the location of the Circus Hotel is extremely convenient. There are many restaurants and bars in and around Rosenthaler Strasse, and the U-Bahn stop is just right outside the front door. And I do love the eco-conscious aims of the hotel. If or when I return to Berlin I'll definitely stay at the Circus Hotel again.

Room Tip: My room was facing the inner courtyard, and thus my room was very quiet. I was able to get an excell...

We chose The Circus Hotel in Berlin because of all the incredible reviews it had and its superb location. We were surely not let down. From the very beginning, the hotel staff took all the time in the world to explain us everything we needed to know, as this was our first time in the city. One of their recommendations was to follow "Brewer's epic 6h Berlin walking tour" the following day. We did and it couldn't have been better! The guide, Oregon-born Preston, did a magnificent job explaining an impressive amount of historical highlights, before,during and after WWII, the wall, up-to-date info on Berlin nowadays and so on. Absolutely incredible.
The staff at the Circus Hotel in Berlin also recommended us a number of restaurants in the area, and even booked us a table in one. Another highlight was the possibility of renting bicycles with them, which we did for 12euros per day. Definitely recommended, weather permitting.
The Hotel seems to be really ecologically-minded. No waste in unnecessary and unneeded toiletries and also organic food in the great breakfast buffet.
Fantastic hotel, city and all!

Have just returned from a 4 night stay at The Circus Hotel that I booked because of the recommendations on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed. The room we were in was lovely with an individual feel to it and although we were overlooking the road, the double glazing was very effective. I was concerned as our room was opposite the lift but it did not disturb us at all. Everything in the hotel has been thought of - from the daily room cleaning service to the free wi-fi (and lap tops to borrow if necessary). The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful which meant we could make the most of our stay in Berlin. It is about 15 minute walk from the centre of Berlin but that meant we saw another part of the city we may have missed otherwise. Will definitely try and repeat the experience.
