Circus Hotel is a great option for you. And does not matter what kind of trip you’re doing because Circus can offer rooms in a proper and elegant hotel, dorms full of fun at its hostel and the privacy of your own apartment in Berlin.
This time we’ll review the hotel for you all, but I can guarantee that all 3 services are great since the brand is really well known among Berliners.
Circus Hotel is wonderfully located in one of Mitte’s nicest areas, the young and hip Rosenthaler Platz. And it is so close to the U-Bahn that you don’t even have to cross the street, you just need to count 15 steps and you’re inside the hotel.
Where to stay in Berlin: Circus Hotel
Circus offers wonderful and spacious rooms, a great bar downstairs with great coffee and cake for those who like coffee and cake and delicious drinks for those who like delicious drinks! Besides that, on the rooftop (yes! they have a great rooftop with an amazing view of Berlin!) they have an Honesty Bar.
“What is a Honesty Bar, Fotostrasse?” you may ask us.
A Honesty Bar is a great concept that you have places to sit and enjoy the view, a fridge full of beer, soft drinks and more and a little metal box. The honesty part is that Circus trusts that everybody will pay for their drink because they believe people are good, and because it is so nice and relaxing, and the prices are so honest that nobody wants that to end. I loved the concept, and you?
The Internet, The Room and the Design all over
Circus Hotel is really big on design, simplicity, elegance and being green. Which is exactly what we need now a days, right? A great place to spend some time and still have peace of mind about the environment.
When you’re checking in, you’re invited to grab a bottle of Shampoo and Conditioner because there’s no need for those really small containers that just promote the excess waste of product and excess amount of plastic in the end.
The bottles have enough for 5 to 7 washes if you’re like me: hair around your shoulders but really thin hair. You can always request more if you like.
The internet they provide is fast but has a login and password for each person. A bit strange for most foreigners but fairly common for a country with no free internet. And speaking about free internet, make sure you save this link for your future trip Free Wifi Berlin.
The room they offered us was great: 2 windows facing the street, tv and a tablet so you could control everything. The bathroom is great, spacious and the shower is strong and relaxing!
Just a pro tip: if you’re more of a winter person like us, ask for a room with no direct sunlight. Felipe felt great inside the room but for me, the perfect temperature is around 13 or 15 Celsius, so it was just too warm.
They offer a strong and super pretty fan in every room but you know, it is not the same.
I bet the room is perfect when there’s no heat wave, and we reviewed the hotel during the worst period for me. Berlin was for over 10 or 15 days with temperatures over 31 Celsius.
Overall about what to expect
In general the hotel is great and you’ll have a wonderful time there, the breakfast is yummy and you can find many options of fresh and warm German breads (the best bread in the world!) and many fruits and beverages. You can even have your morning coffee in their magical internal garden – and you should!
This is definitely the best choice for your staying in the heart of Berlin.
We strongly recommended this hotel to a few friends and family shortly after we had the pleasure to know and they all loved. If you’re looking for a place for your next time here in Berlin, consider them.
