Service & Facilities
There are lots of options open to you with accommodation at the Circus Hotel & Apartments. The Circus includes three distinct properties that house up to 440 guests – The Circus Hotel, The Circus Apartments and the Hostel. A common thread runs through all the accommodation, one of a genuine, service-orientated approach to hospitality. They pride themselves on treating their guests as they would wish to be treated, the founders are passionate travellers and it shows! The hotel boasts some charming communal areas, there’s a courtyard which makes a very popular spot for a morning coffee, the rooftop terrace where you can relax, admire the sunset or take a yoga class, the lobby – a delightful oasis of sofas and hanging plants, and finally, the library is perfect for those contemplative, peaceful moments. If you want some help occupying your time, the team organise some excellent activities, including tours, tastings, readings and performances.
Which accommodation you pick really depends on your budget and how much you like to spread out! The hotel offers economy, single, twin and double rooms, but discerning travellers should definitely check out the suites; king-sized beds, fab wallpaper, rainfall showers, free Wi-Fi and a work and seating area make this a very comfortable and very trendy place to stay. If you want to spread out further; perhaps if you are travelling with the family or are in Berlin for a prolonged stay, the apartments are definitely worth considering. They are luxurious, are fully-serviced and offer spacious, bright rooms, your own kitchen and a terrace or balcony. Tech-fans will be happy here too, there’s a loaded iPad, a multimedia docking station, flat screen TV with Blu-ray player and free Wi-Fi. The concierge team are a wonderful extra component to your stay and can arrange a washing service, fresh flowers, tailor-made city tours, a private fitness trainer or massage.
Food & Drink
The hotel’s restaurant, Commonground, is officially one of the best spots for breakfast in Berlin according to Speisekarte magazine and by night serves a mean cocktail! Across the road at the hostel, you’ll find the casual Der Milchladen café, a great spot for coffee and cake. There’s even a Microbrewery in the basement bar that comes alive at night where they make a variety of their own beers – and if you’re not a beer-fan, that’s ok, they also make their own gin!
