Breaking news!

The Circus owners have just signed a new contract that will have the hotel running until 2044! Yes, The Circus is turning into a lifelong project, and we couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to keep making history for the next 25 years!

So we sat down with Andreas Becker, one of The Circus founders, and asked him how it feels to take such a big step forward and commit to another quarter of a century.

Here’s what he said:

“A very special day for us”

After intense negotiations we managed to find an agreement today with our rental partner, Mr Wilhelm Hilpert, and signed a new lease for The Circus Hotel until 2044. Yep, 2044. With the Hostel lease already secured for another 25 years this means nothing less than the security that the Circus, started in the late 90´s, will be able to write a few more chapters in a story, which is as fascinating as it was unexpected. We couldn’t be happier today.

The signature is the starting point for the next phase of developments, which will see us trying to grow the place we love into one of the leading privately run Boutique Hotels in Berlin, with extensive renovations, upgrades and a plethora of new ideas and improvements coming in the second half of 2020. The planning starts now, stay tuned, more information is coming soon!

With the signature still being fresh we are a bit overwhelmed right now, have to get used to this new dimension of things and would really like to express our heartfelt gratitude towards our partner, who is the antipode of what real estate developers in the city are far too often: a reliable, trustworthy and modest person and contract partner.

We are so very much looking forward to the next decades, and we will try to go on with what we love doing: serving you well!

Andreas Becker, The Circus Owner

As planning of the renovations is slowly rolling out, we are excited to keep you updated on the biggest improvement we’ve taken on so far. It’s looking good!
