I was fortunate enough to stay here for 3 nights in October and wow was I surprised. The hotel is fantastic with funky chic decor and the location in Rosenthaler Platz is ideal. You have the Rosenthaler Platz U-Bahn stop right outside the front door as well as access to the tram line which makes it SO easy to get... More

This hotel had the friendliest staff of any we found. They couldn't do enough for us, the room was great and the breakfast was amazing. The best in Germany! We even bought some marmalade to bring home. Exceptional effort by the Chef and we loved their commitment to the environment.

It is situated in a very convenient area of Berlin with good access to public transport if required although we mainly walked everywhere.

We had a warm welcome on arrival. The room itself was great with any information required on a tablet that was in the room. We had breakfast at the hotel which was delicious and great value for money. We also had cocktails one evening and they were very good. The hotel was a short taxi ride from the main train... More

Only a couple of stops by tram from the main station the hotel is perfectly placed for all the main sights. It's clean, trendy, modern, central, with an excellent restaurant. Our room was clean and spacious with a lovely bathroom. I particularly liked the ethics of the hotel - raising money for good causes and promoting healthy eating. All the... More

My friend and I stayed at the Circus Hotel last month for a short 3 day trip. I was impressed by how close to proximity the hotel was to the U-Bahn which is an easy and quick way to travel in Berlin. The hotel is surrounded by eclectic mix of cafes, bars, eateries and corner shops. The appearance of the... More

This is a real cracker of a hotel. The location is excellent, directly beside the u-bahn, surrounded by coffee shops and little places to eat as well as places to buy carryouts or (drink in the room) wine. It's also within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. The hotel itself is friendly and quirky. Staff are eager to help but don't intrude... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
