We had stayed at the Circus a few years ago and had a fab time. The hotel had offered us an upgrade to one of their apartments before we left home. We declined but in retrospect we wish we had taken up the offer. As last time we went for a Junior Suite. .but yo be honest it was nothing...

I have stayed twice in this lovely hotel. It is a totally one off hotel. Very quirky, beautifully decorated in a minimalist style. The bar is very welcoming before or after an evening out. It is well located for the U Line as well as being fairly close to a number of major sightseeing areas. There are lots of bars...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights,and the hotel exceeded our expectations. The staff all speak excellent English and made us very welcome. We stayed in a junior suite, only a few euros more than a regular room but worth it as the room was comfortable, well equipped and extremely spacious. Cosy friendly bar downstairs but if you...

Stayed here with my wife, and chose this hotel over 5 star hotels in Berlin which cost about the same, but don't expect it to be a 5 stars hotel as it is not. Yet it is a very good hotel. the Hotel decor is cool, there is a good vibe in the lobby and however the room was quiet...

Stayed for a long weekend with my husband in early December. Booked a suite & we were not disappointed! The room & bathroom were immaculately clean & well decorated. Friendly, helpful staff. Good breakfast & selection of drinks. Would 100% stay again!

Can't fault this place. Interior is lovely - really cool and quirky. Downstairs area with lounge, bar and restuarant is comfortable, chilled and has a friendly vibe to it. Great cocktails, good range of food and they make a decent coffee too! The staff here are all so helpful, genuine and friendly - nothing was too much trouble - from...

Was recommended this hotel on a travel forum on Facebook. I loved the hotel, and Berlin Mitte is great as well. It is much traffic outside, so if you are sensitively to sounds, you might ask for rooms towards the back. I prefer a breakfast buffet. Circus hotel has a system that you may order some items from a set...

15 steps away from the Rosenthalerstrasser U-bahn this hotel is just great for sight-seeing. Run by a group of super-cool staff in their twenties, it has a fantastic vibe. The bedroom and corridor decor is bright and slightly wacky but our room was large and the shower-room great, with loads of instant hot water. It's all clean and bright. Breakfast...

Not so good despite the raving reviews... Issues during our stay: - Permanent smell of canalisation in the room. Not acceptable for this price. - We were left without warm water for one evening and following morning. Impossible to take a shower in spite of the very low outside temperature. - The tablet in the room not working. When I...

We stayed here for 3 nights and would really recommend to anyone staying in Berlin. Fabulous rooms, restaurant, bar and extremely friendly, helpful and knowledge staff. Perfect location. Lots of the large chain hotels seem to be located nearer shopping districts and tourist sites but I think there will be little to do at night. There are plenty of bars,...

Staying in Mitte

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.
