Top-notch location; a fun & quirky atmosphere.

Overview: The Circus Hotel is probably the elder, soberer & refined sibling of the probably more recognized Circus HoStel.

Property & Room: Located at the junction of Rosenthaler Platz, it's about a 15-minute tram ride from the Berlin HBF and is located close to many restaurants, & bars and is probably not the most touristy part of the city - which is a good thing!
The reception is unassuming but intimate and on the ground floor along with their famous bar & restaurant (unfortunately didn't try either). The pathways in the hotel for some reason, best known to the Europeans and Scandinavians, are dim, if not out-rightly dark. But once you do manage your room (YOUR room), it's a typical theme continues - while not the best lit, still unique and quirky.
The smallish-medium sized room was well appointed. The sole window provides a glimpse of the Berlin TV tower and their verandah. There were a couple of storage areas, a coffee table with 2 chairs along with a small Bose boombox and the works. The bathroom, though also smallish was clean and well designed.We got a room facing the inner veranda, so was quiet. Assuming the rooms facing the road may be a little noisier.

F&B: Unfortunately we didn't try any of their F&B offerings, however, we did go to their other dining outlet at the Hostel (which expectedly has a younger & livelier vibe) for breakfast (while basic, still a steal for EUR 5 - it's unlimited and healthy) and to their bar too (in the hostel) - the folks at the hotel's reception gave us a few vouchers to try their brewed beers in the hostel's bar - which were really awesome!
But the place has multiple dining options - across all cuisines & budgets. Please do try to visit the 24x7 Rosenthaler Grill & Schlemmerbuffet for excellent Middle Eastern food and with oodles of character

Service & Amenities: Limited scope to experience either, but some highlights:
- really friendly, pleasant & helpful folks at the hotel (and hostel's) receptions
- some amenities are indeed quite top-notch like the Bose Bluetooth boombox, etc.

Overall: All-in-all, a very well located hotel, with good rooms, a very chic vibe & lots of character and as importantly well-priced (but yes, please do improve the internal lighting!).

Room tip: We got a room facing the inner verandah, so was quiet. Assuming the rooms facing the road may be a little noisier.

Comfortable and very friendly hotel. Modern rooms; kettle and tea/coffee provided. Staff very helpful. Breakfast available also at the hostel opposite; cafes and bars nearby; right outside U-Bahn station. It is located in more of a shopping area so lacks typically German pubs and restaurants

Room tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard are quieter but the corner room we had overlooking the street was bigger and better.

I have stayed here twice and love it. Very conveniently located and walking distance to many of sites. Very clean and comfortable. The breakfast cafe / bar is a great place to relax at the beginning or end of your day.

My first trip was for vacation, my second for business. Both times, it was the perfect place to stay.

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. We were pleased with the decor.This hotel is centrally located and we were able to find our way to all the sites we wanted to see. The public transportation was right outside our door.
