0.07km from Rosenthaler PlatzTop-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!).
