Reviewed August 23, 2014

Our family of four stayed at the Circus hotel for two nights in July. The apartment was fantastic, large bedrooms and well furnished and very comfortable.
Great facilities, breakfast was great for a reasonable price. Local area has everything you need, restaurants, shops and bars. There is also a roof top honesty bar.
We would stay here again, there is really no need to look any further at other hotels.

I stayed here for a couple of nights.

Great central location, nice cafes around, within walking distance to a lot of attractions.

Hotel staff were quite helpful as well.

Cons: Got a room close to the lift so there was some noise at night.

Stayed here for 2 days in August. The hotel was very easy to find and centrally located convenient to the U line, making it perfect for exploring the city. The rooms were new, decent sized by Europe standards and very clean. We really liked the local area which has lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. At the hotel they have a patio out back and another on the roof that are very nice for relaxing. The roof top has an 'honesty bar' with beer and there is a full service restaurant and bar in the main hotel. The hotel is very eco conscious and so does not have air conditioning in the rooms, this wasn't a big problem for us even in Aug but the weather was very mild during our stay. They provide a fan in each room but if it would have been very hot the room may have been uncomfortable. We had a room facing the street which was a bit noisy with the window opened but very quiet when closed. The bed was comfortable and the room and entire hotel were very clean. Wifi was OK but seemed hard to get onto each time. I would stay here again if in Berlin based on location, price and service, nice hotel

Room Tip: Ask for room on courtyard side away from street, rooms are fairly quiet but the street is very busy...

Our family of four stayed at Circus hotel for 2 nights. At the last minute, our nephew was able to join us and the hotel easily accommodated him in the apartment. The two bedroom two bath apartment with a full kitchen is great. We were able to enjoy a quick pizza takeout after arriving, before starting to tour the city. The hotel made a great picnic dinner for us very quickly to enjoy at the outdoor cinema night in the park. Buffet breakfast was very good. Outdoor terrace is lovely spot to enjoy breakfast. When the hotel didn't have any bikes left, they quickly directed us to a nearby rental spot. If I was returning to Berlin alone or with my husband, would definitely think about staying in a hotel room as the location, services and approach of the hotel was very appealing.

Room Tip: The apartment faced on the hotel terrace so noise wasn't an issue.

The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The cocktails superb and breakfast was just right - as much or as little as you want, with excellent espresso coffee.
Our room overlooked the breakfast area and was lovely, quiet and comfortable.
There is a terrace at the top of the hotel, with great views, where you can have a nightcap or just relax.
Lots of transport next door and Alexander Platz is a short walk away.
We love this hotel.

Room Tip: Get an inside room overlooking the garden. There are apartments on the top which are great value to...

We had two rooms for our family of 4. We loved it and thought is was a SUPER value. Both our rooms overlooked the courtyard and were quiet with the windows open. Not sure how loud it would be if your room opened on to the street side. Location was great and free WIFi was good. There was a U stop and tram stop right at the corner. Staff all spoke English well and were VERY helpful with any question. There is a cute rooftop deck which has self serve drinks, but unfortunately we were unable to use this due to 3 days of rain. We only wish the hotel could offer AC as it was humid because of the rain, but we realize AC is not the standard in Germany. Would defiantly tell our friends to stay here.

Room Tip: Request a courtyard room.

My daughter and I just stayed 3 nights at the Circus over the weekend of August 9-10 and loved it! Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was well-designed, spacious and contemporary in decoration. Everything worked well, including the free wi-fi (after being a little fuss the first time we logged on) and the shower was the best I've experienced in Europe. Lots of nice little touches as well. For example, athough there was not air-conditioning, the hotel provided a large fan in the room, which, along with the two large operable windows, kept the room comfortable. We had a room on the 4th (top) floor overlooking the courtyard, and had no problems with late night noise. The hotel has a small, rooftop deck with an honor bar, making it a great place to unwind at the end of the day. Plus, my daughter took one of the morning yoga classes the hotel offered on the roof deck and enjoyed it. Breakfast was not included in our rate, but the 9 Euro continental breakfast the hotel provides in its restaurant/back patio was outstanding and a great value. The location of the hotel is excellent as well - close to the U-bahn as well as a streetcar stop, and near the trendy Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood as well as close to Mitte and Museum Island. Getting there from the Berlin Hauptbahnhof was an easy 10-minute ride on the #142 bus. All in all, I can't say enough good things about this hotel.
One last tip - Berlin is a very bike-friendly city and bikes are a good way to get between the various sights. The hotel does not rent bikes but its sister establishment, The Circus Hostel, located across the street, does, for 12 Euro a day. We rented bikes one day and they worked very well and it was easy to get around.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, choose a room facing the courtyard. We had 408 and it was lovely.
