This hotel has everything you need for a weekend in Berlin. Nice and spacious rooms, comfortable beds and a location close to everything. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is superfresh with good bread and organic cheese and meat. Some good restaurants just around the corner. We really liked Transit a asian-fusion restaurant just a minute walk from the hotel.

Stayed in a Junior Suite at this hotel for 4 nights. The room was very large with a sitting area overlooking the courtyard so no problem with noise. Position great, close to public transport but also close enough to walk to a lot of places. Staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was nice and fresh. Overall I would highly recommend it.

Really cannot fault anything at this hotel. The staff were super helpful, the presentation was great and it's exactly where you need to be in Berlin - close to nightlife and restaurants and within walking distance of the best sites. Handy little intranet with descriptions of sites, bars etc. on the wireless network and equally handy organic toiletries available from reception - nice touches.

My friend and I have just returned from staying at this hotel for 3 nights. Flew into Berlin schonenfeld and took the train into Alexanderplatz and then subway to Rosenthaller str . All very easy . Came out subway and hotel on corner . Location was perfect, all sights within easy walking distance and subway on doorstep . Was greeted by Robert who was excellent . Couldn't give us enough information ! Explained everything clearly. Room was on 3rd floor overlooking street . Very clean . Now the downside . This was hot exceptional weather and there was no air con only a fan . Found it hard to sleep at night with windows open (too much noise) windows closed just too hot even with fan . Ask for room overlooking courtyard . If you go to this hotel just beware in the heat . Breakfast was plentiful . There was a nice little roof terrace where you could sit and have a drink . An honesty box is provided . Apart from no air con ! I would still recommend this hotel . Service very good and the staff couldn't do enough to help . As it was so hot , we took the train to Potsdam and went on the open top bus tour. A town worth visiting . On the way back stopped at Waansee (Nickolasse) and visited the lake /beach ! An easy walk from the station . All in all Berlin is a great place to visit full of history .

Yes - another satisfied customer. Great location beside the Rosenthaler Platz underground station, perfect for getting around and the hotel supplied Euro 4.50 day passes. We had a junior suite room 312 and it was really nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. The staff were all friendly and spoke English. Breakfast for Euro 8 was great value and we ate in the restaurant one night and had a great dinner.
The website has detailed video instructions for getting there from the hotel and the hotel wiki is full of handy hints on Berlin.
Loads of great bars and restaurants nearby.
I would not go anywhere else if I come back to Berlin. Thanks for a graet stay guys!

Room Tip: 312 is at the front, large and airy. Tram noise outside wasn't an issue

I'm afraid I have to join the chorus of people who love this hotel. We stayed for 3 nights in June 2013 and loved it. The staff were very attentive and helpful and we took advantage of their free Circus tours. We went to the Stassi HQ. What an amazing place! Breakfast in the courtyard was a delight and in the evening the in-house restaurant meals are very good. Jazz on a Sunday night was a bonus. Beyond the hotel are many excellent places to eat. Our favourite was Transit, a Thai restaurant about 50m down the road. The rooms are fresh and well equipped but can be a bit noisy on the street side if you leave the windows open, but that was certainly not a deal breaker for us. Opt for a courtyard side room. Berlin itself is such an amazing city we barely scratched the surface in 3 days, so when we return we will definitely be staying at the Circus Hotel.

Everything was well clean, the location is very easy to move around the city as well. The rooms and the building were all recently painted and looking new. I loved the place and will come back. The level of English of the girl staying at the front desk during the day was not the best. The guy during the night was better. Nothing that affect the experience.
