“Great Hotel central for work & shop & travelling alone!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

My circumnavigating techniques are terribly poor! But getting to this hotel from Schoenefeld airport Berlin was easy. Plus they gave me the directions. Fab airy room with magnificent wifi! An enormous open style cafe restaurant with great staff open till late & they catered to my weird & wondrous food quirks without batting an eyelid. They have a 24 hour reception & the staff really explained patiently how to get from one fashion show to the next on my tight schedule! Would I visit again an all resounding yes! I love it and would seriously recommend to solo female travelers with a penchant for being nervy!

My visit was some time ago now - lazy reviewer! However from memory this hotel was quite good.
Great location, easy links to anywhere you want to go and to the airport also (very good instructions on the website of how to get there from the airport - came in handy!)
Room comfortable, good bathroom, service was great, wifi etc good, toiletries in the reception area were good.
No complaints here!

Excellent location, very helpful staff, rooms are small but comfortable, no air con but with fan. Good, small bathroom, no mini bar but on the ground floor excellent bar with restaurant. We had a dinner there , yummy, served in a beautiful courtyard.

We found this gem of a hotel on tripadvisor. The staff, especially Hugo and Julia, were so friendly and helpful.I had made enquiries about clothes ironing facilities about 10 days before arrival---an iron and board were in our room when we checked in. Just that small touch made you feel valued as a customer.This is not a hotel for you if you want corporate blandness.This is a hotel run with a distinctive spirit .The breakfasts were amazing, high quality products,we had a rooftop BBQ on our last evening --cooked expertly by Bully,--Good wines too .Location of the hotel is ideal-----.we will always have good memories of Berlin thanks to the "The Circus"

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard preferable

Great hotel in a fine location. I searched and searched and we are glad we chose the Circus. The restaurant is great too.
Don't be stupid like us, rent bikes from the Hostel (across the street) and ride around the town, After walking out butts off (shopping for shoes for the girls, UGH) we rented bikes and had a blast hitting the sites and felt very safe.
It was 25.00 Euros from Tegel in a cab, same going to the airport. 4 (or so) Euros for 1/2 day bike rental. You can also go the Freitag store and get bikes for free. Buy a bag while your there, we spent hours picking out bags for the girls, almost as fun as shoe shopping..payback for a week in Normandy for the D-Day anniversary I guess.
