Stayed at this hotel in early March and had a fantastic stay. Close enough to get to all the main sites easily enough but far enough away not to be stuck in with lots of tourists. Breakfast, coffee and cake were excellent. Didn't try dinner as there were plenty of places to eat sometimes.

It was my first time in Berlin. Excellent city hotel. Great vibe. Excellent staff. Great location. The bathroom is nice and spacious with powerful shower. The reception gave me very good advise on tourist type things to do. Probably not ideal for a business hotel but the best choice for a weekend away or vacation.

The Circus Hotel is located near the Alexander Place.
Next to the hotel you have the underground.
I thought the hotel was ok but not wow.
The location is good, close to restaurants and bars.
The room was cold and humid; it could have been due to the bad weather outside.
Wifi is free but you have to log in to it each time you go on the net..
Breakfast was really disappointing and not included in the room rate! Only one glass of juice was included, no croissant no toaster and it cost €8
Now to something positive, the different receptionists are very friendly and helpful. The bar/lounge area is nice to have a drink.
Personally I will not come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room against the yard, some of my colleagues had room against the street and it was very n...

I stayed at the Circus hotel for 3 nights in July 2012. It was a fabulous hotel! Beautifully decorated rooms and friendly staff were the best parts of my stay. The restaurant Fabisch was delicious and the courtyard area was a great place to have a drink and relax after a long day of sightseeing. Very convenient location to Alexanderplatz and public transportation. Short taxi ride from the Hauptbahnhof. Small miscommunication about our room safe not working but I feel it was because of my extremely limited german language skills that the front desk didn't understand. It was quickly remedied with a trip up to the room to show the handyman what was wrong.

Just returned from a 3 night break at the circus. Great hotel, in a great location. We stayed in one of the smaller double rooms, which was perfect for our needs during the 3 days i.e. clean, warm, great shower, comfy bed & good nights sleep. The staff are superb and really help out and answer any questions. The bar / restaurant on the ground floor was brilliant and had a great vibe about it...again the staff are great. They did good simple breakfast fare up until 1.00pm and on the night having a few drinks in the bar area was the perfect day to end a day of action packed sight seeing. I would also highly recommend the brewers berlin walking tour that leaves from the hotel each day (i've done a separate review for more detail on this) There are also a few great cafe/bars within a few mins walk - check out Sur Rose (really good!!) Overall i would highly recommend the circus as your base for exploring the great city of Berlin - the underground is right outside the hotel and you are a 10-15 min walk from museum island...spot on!

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, for a city break and on our arrival we were greeted with a friendly welcome from the receptionists.
Our room was 315 (suite) and it was a very spacious room, overlooking the court yard. We did feel the vibration of the odd underground train but not enough to spoil our stay.
Despite the location of this hotel, on the corner of a busy junction, we did not hear any traffic noise. The hotel is ideally situated for visiting the sites of Berlin.
The food in the hotel was of a very high standard but if I had to make any negative observations it would be to say that breakfast was an addition cost and there could have been more choice.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and we would happily recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less traffic noise

Very cool hotel, great service, delicious food and organic breakfast.
The only thing they should adjust is the wifi connection. Not working properly, very slow and not user friendly.
Said so, it's a great place to stay in Berlin.

Room Tip: the economy room is very small, but good quality for the price.
