Travellers' Choice
Opened in 2008 and freshly renovated in 2020, The Circus Hotel is a boutique, design-orientated hotel in Berlin-Mitte, housed in a beautifully restored 19th-century landmark-protected building overlooking Rosenthaler Platz. Close to all the main attractions of the city and in a lively neighbourhood of bars, restaurants, art galleries and independent shops, we’re here to help you experience all that Berlin has to offer. Join us for our weekly curated programme of events and activities, relax in our garden courtyard or take in the spectacular views from our roof terrace. On the ground floor of The Circus Hotel you’ll find our lounge, library and garden courtyard, a place to linger over breakfast or grab a bite to eat before heading out into the city. Warm breakfast is served from 08:00 – 11:00, including homemade granola, eggs how you like them, vegan scramble and breakfast burritos, to name a few of the options. We’ve also thought carefully about our drinks, with coffee from Vote Roasters and teas from Paper and Tea, and why not try our Cruffin – a mix of croissant and muffin that is sure to become a breakfast classic. The Circus hotel is eco-friendly, equipped with solar panels and a Sustainable Cooling System, sustainability is at the heart of our preoccupation.

Caring staff. My GoogleMaps led me to a door (think it was the Circus Apartments) that was on the back side of the building (I later saw I was not the only one who made that error so there's something up). Marielle and Julian helped me out a lot regarding that. Julian himself walked with me outside and guided me to the correct entrance. Both were really patient during that instance and throughout my 3 night stay. There is a connected bar with fun bartenders who also know perfect English. Outside patrons also dropped by and it was a lively atmosphere. The location is amazing as it is right by the Rosenthaler Platz station. Bus stop was right there, too. Restaurants in the area were open well past midnight. Plenty of bars. Could not have chosen a better area to stay at. My room also had a note written to me, which was a nice personal touch. A rotary phone inside added to the ambiance that I was in East Berlin (Mitte). Sleep - okay so this was a mixed bag. Stayed in 104. Though I was on the 1st floor (2nd floor for my fellow Americans), I did not hear much outside noise. Great! Earplugs were also provided. Awesome. However, it was TOO quiet. I mean I thought I was in outer space. Like I could hear the blood rush in my head. For some people that works or maybe they have music on. I've stayed in rooms all over the world, I have never been in one that silent. Good problems to have rather than the alternative. The bed was comfortable and the curtains did their job. Shower had enough pressure. TV - the only English channels are BBC news. The Sport1Germany channel has porn after like 11pm lmao. If this was 1997 that'd be exciting, but hey fun surprise.

Hotel's Favourite
Loved this hotel. The staff were all really helpful and knowledgeable. My room was lovely and had a great view of the street below. They put on a special breakfast for the marathon runners on the Sunday which was really helpful. The hotel also ran free tours to one of the museums which was amazing. Would highly recommend.

Fabulous boutique hotel. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Comfy beds and pillows and excellent shower. Location is central and there are loads of restaurants and bars close by..the hotel is on a main junction which means it’s easy to get to and from all the main sites. The bar is fantastic, lovely atmosphere and great cocktails/service. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Berlin.

Great location right next to Rosenthaler Platz so the cheap and very reliable U-Bahn and trams are right on the doorstep. Also close enough to the centre that you can easily walk Hotel is very nice - we had the family apartment which was clean, well equipped and spacious. Even on the 4th floor it can be a bit noisy but after a busy day you sleep like a log anyway. We didn't have breakfast there as it seemed expensive but there's plenty of options within very easy reach. Would definitely stay here again

What a magical wee hotel in a great location. Easy access to public transport links and within walking distance of city centre. Staff are super friendly and helpful, and we loved the quirky decor. Breakfast was great with a wide selection and options for all tastes.

Absolutely fabulous. Clean and cozy. Staff were very pleasant. Location was great with many attractions a at reasonable walking distance or a short tram ride. The tram stop was across the road and there was also access to the u station right outside the door. The food was good but definitely on the more expensive side.

We had an apartment at the back of hotel, for myself and my two teenagers. Beautiful, comfortable, spacious and quiet (which was a request I sent the hotel when booking)…well it could be quieter if the kitchen staff underneath would stop slamming the doors, an issue we had to complain about to front desk on a daily basis and it got a bit annoying after four nights there! Having a well equipped kitchen and tea and coffee provided was great. The staff is friendly and attentive, efficient and kind. One of the barmen wasn’t very friendly but the Argentinian and American waiters made up for it big time, they could not be nicer! Breakfast was AMAZING, the hot food was incredible and I highly recommend it. My only improvement recommendation is that they offer better coffee as the one included in the breakfast price wasn’t great. Location is convenient and easy to take either public transport or walk. Felt safe too. I highly recommend this place, we felt at home in Berlin and would definitely come back to stay here!

Very nice hotel with excellent attention to detail including a tray of treats where you can get free toiletries, recommendations for spas and restaurants and nice beds and showers. It’s in a great area for public transport so getting around is easy by train, tram or bus. It can be a bit noisy outside because of the trams at night but they do provide ear plugs if you need them

We had a really nice stay for three nights in rainy and cold november. They are in a nice location with easy access to pulic transport - walking to lots of places is easy if that's your thing. The bar is very popular in the evenings although their signature drink is weird. Breakfast was excellent although it has odd pricing.
