Why Stay Here?

Dear Circus Guest, We are looking forward to welcome you in the newest member of the Circus family - the Circus Hotel. Opened October 30th, 2008, the Circus Hotel continues our tradition of a friendly welcome to Berlin, and has been designed to reflect our commitments to hospitality, individuality and sustainability. At the Circus Hotel you will not only find comfortable accommodation, but also a range of services to make your stay truly special, including iPods’ loaded with the best of Berlin music, bike and scooter rental, and a garden courtyard that provides the perfect place to relax, unwind, and reflect on your Berlin experiences. Once you get here, we probably do not have to tell you that Berlin is one of the most liberal cities you will visit.

Maybe because it has always been an immigrants place the atmosphere is open, and in today’s Berlin it is no real problem to lead an undisturbed ‘out’-life as you like it. Around underground station Nollendorfplatz at the U2 and around station Eberswalder Strasse you will find hundreds of bars, cafes, darkrooms and clubs, whatever you might look for. As our mayor says: “I'm gay, and that is good!”


Wonderful experience - will come back here!
I loved the hotel, the service and the responsiveness of the staff. I just found several things not working in my room including the bedside lamp that came off the wall, the electric connection inside the locker (which is an excellent idea), etc. but everything got taken care of, so I have no complaints! -A Travele, United States of America

Awesome Hotel and Restaurant

Wonderful would definitely come back
We had a 2 bedroom apartment in the hotel, had everything we needed for our 3 night stay in Berlin. Fabulous location; S and U bahn and trains all outside. Our rooms were great with 2 bathrooms, both with lovely showers. a kitchen area with a table and plenty of space and all we needed, we didn't cook anything but the kitchen had all you would need to prep a meal. a sitting area with a day bed which was extremely cosy. definitely recommend, and as a guest you get a reduced rate for breakfast downstairs 12 euros - extremely good value and yummy, kept us full for the days adventures. staff were all really helpful, apartment quiet and beds very comfy. -the_swimming_girls, Reading, United Kingdom

I miss the lobby lounge already!
This hotel has it all. The location is perfect- subway literally outside the front door, so many good quality restaurants & shops within 5-10 min walk (or just eat in the hotel restaurant which is also delicious!). Breakfast fabulous. Staff extremely helpful & funny. Great common areas to hang out- the lobby is an oasis full of comfy chairs, hanging plants & ample books/magazines for browsing. Rooftop deck with great views. The hotel also organizes a TON of activities (not lame ones!) including tours, tastings, readings/performances. The calendar looked so interesting I'm still a little sad we didn't cancel the rest of our trip and stay in Berlin. We had terrible weather and we still had SUCH a good time during our stay, which tells you something about the city and the this hotel. -Kathryn T, New York City, New York

Fantastic stay
I booked this hotel based on reviews I had read and I was not disappointed. Firstly upon arrival following an early morning flight we were just going to drop our bags and head off sightseeing but we were told our room was ready so this got us off to a great start. The hotel is decorated fab, it's clean and has a cosy feel to it. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. -Stephanie C, Cork, Ireland



The Hotel is ideally located in the centre of the city, just a stone's throw away from the boutique shops of Hackescher Markt, the galleries of Scheunenviertel, and the museums of Museum Island.

Located in the heart of Berlin, between the popular districts of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. It is right across from Rosenthaler Platz Underground Station, 2 subway stops from Alexanderplatz.

Inside, we offer a comfortable space to relax and unwind. Our Head Designer Sandra Ernst is responsible for the interior of the hotel and has a soft spot for bright and cheerful colours, as well as hand-crafted individual pieces of furniture.
