“Great hotel, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Arrived earlier than our check in time but the staff were great, taken our bags to a secure room leaving us free to go for a wander. When we arrived back we were checked in and our bags were already brought up.
Very nice room, not massive but to be honest you spend more time out and about. I have to say though, the shower was fantastic.
Great staff and fantastic value for money. Will certainly be back.

We booked The Circus because of the reviews on Tripadvisor and it didn't disappoint!! The staff were fantastic, the hotel was amazing and the cocktails were perfect!

The whole city was fantastic and I'd definitely recommend doing one of the hotel walking tours, the guides were excellent and so knowledgeable. What is also great is that the tubes run all night and are super easy to navigate.

All in all a truly excellent trip.

I am still here, having a wonderful time, using the free wifi in he hotel sitting in the bar area having the most wonderful cocktails by Aussie Barman Mike. He makes the best Old Fashioned cocktails.
Cannot fault this hotel. Rooms are spotless and adequate. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast ok. Great location for seeing all the sites. Will always stay here o my visits to Berlin.

Room Tip: If you sleep with a window open, dont get a room overlooking the street

I visited this hotel for the second time in November. The staff are very, very friendly and always happy to advise and help.

I recommend the DDR self guided walk on the hotels 'things to do' website. A great introduction to Berlin and to get your bearings.

We stayed in a junior suite that was very comfortable and met all our requirements. Sorting out coffee and milk for our room was a bit of a hassle. You need to go to the restaurant to get milk then reception / concierge to get filter coffee and a coffee maker! Not the most convenient.

The breakfast is delicious and exceptional value for 8 euros.

I'd highly recommend this hotel.

we stayed in this hotel for 4 nights on 4/11 - 8/11/12
and we have good things about it. it's small and quite, the front desk is so small that you can feel it's only your hotel. the room was nice and very clean. we took the street room, and it's very quite when closing the windows. the staff was very helpful (with guided for places to see and to eat). the area is nice and lot of restaurants and bars nearby, the metro (u) is just in the front.
but few things for improve: the screen TV is so small (maby 20'') its small for watching from bed, and only one channel in English (BBC). the price of the main course in Fabicha restaurant are little beet high. i recomnd that the hotel management will think to add a breakfast to the room price; even with few euros more.
but except of this was excellent,
thanks (itsik room 409)

Room Tip: i recomend to take the room to the street; and at night closing the windows and certains

We had a great time at the Circus hotel. We rented the 2-bed apartment which has the advantage of being away from the main road so didn't have any noise to deal with which other reviewers have mentioned. The staff are all very friendly and speak excellent English. The aprtment was very clean, neat and well furnished, with a small kitchen. The restaurant / bar gets busy on Saturdays, and has a steady throughput of people most nights - and is reasonably priced for food and drinks. The Berlin night on a Tuesday is recommended for a taste of authentic Berlin recipes and music from the 20's - not for small appetites though! Great connections to Berlin Centre - u-bahn, tram and bus all directly outside the door - and lots of locla bars / shops / restaurants within 10 min walk.

I cannot say one negative thing about this hotel. The location was amazing (right next to the U-bahn), the price was cheap, the stall was friendly and helpful, the hallways were lined with funky wall decals, the room was modern and decorated where they maximized the small space, this bathroom was clean and funky, the shower head was good (not a dodgy weak one).

You must stay here! Also there's a curry wurst place around the corner that had THE BEST curry wurst, omg the perfect combination :)
