I first stayed at the suites in 2003, and I have come back ever since. The suites are very generously sized, the service extremely attentive, the location on Friedrichstrasse convenient, and the value for the money is unbeatable.

We stayed at the Mandala Suites for one week in August 2013 and we were very impressed by all aspects of our stay. Our suite on the fifth floor was very spacious (more than 60 square meters) and the front desk staff were very responsive to all of our requests. Although the suite has a good but small kitchen it lacked a dining/breakfast table, but one was found quickly when one was requested. The suites are also perfectly located to both low end and high end (Galerie Lafayette on Friedrichstrasse) grocery stores as well as being ideally located near the Mitte stop on the Ubahn. We would not hesitate to go back to the Mandala Suites. A first class operation at a relatively modest price!

Room Tip: Apparently higher rooms are quieter and we were located on the Mohrenstrasse side of the hotel that...

The Mandala Suites is a great hotel in a nice central location 5 minute walk from Checkpoint Charlie. The staff are very polite and willing to help in any way they can. This hotel is unusual in the fact that it is not a full service hotel, so there is no room service and the front desk is not open 24 hours a day. The benefit though is that you get an awful lot of room for your money. We stayed in one of the Management Suites for 10 days in August and the suite was fantastic. There is a separate bedroom with a rolling dividing wall, a small kitchen, living room, enormous hall, walk in wardrobe and a separate bathroom and toilet.

Our suite was on the third floor looking out onto the street. With the windows closed it was very quiet, but with the windows open there was a fair amount of street noise quite early in the morning, rubbish collection lorries mostly. There is AC in both the bedroom and the living room so there’s no need to open the windows if the noise is going to bother you.

If I have any gripe about the room it would be that it is a little dark with not enough lighting. Even with every light in the room switched on it was still a little dim for our personal taste. The room though was very clean and comfortable and we would definitely stay here again next time we visit Berlin.

Room Tip: Choose a suite, street facing is more interesting.

I stayed in one of these apartments whilst in Berlin on business they are excellent. There was plenty of room for everything you need! The service was extremely helpful. The location was great being on the main shopping road in Berlin! The roof spa and gym is amazing a great way to relax after a hard days work! Breakfast was also very nice!

Will return if I'm ever back in Berlin.

Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Stayed for 3 nights for business.
Positives: Centrally located. Huge clean and classy rooms (one of the biggest I've ever stayed in). Bed room and living room are separate. Clean and large bathroom. Large kitchen with big fridge and cooking space. High-tech electrical shades. Large windows. Could comfortably live here for weeks or months. Great restaurant with very nice view of the city. Supermarket not too far. Free internet. Fantastic classic German restaurant right outside the hotel (great beers and sausages, etc.)
Negative: It's not a hotel but an apartment. So, the reception is not there 24 hrs. Entering hotel late at night needs to be done from the back entrance. If you are staying out late, you better check out where the back entrance is before you go out.
Would gladly return to this place when back in Berlin. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Check out the back entrance before you go out for the night, if you don't wanna have to look for...

Made a short visit to Berlin and stayed at Mandala Suites along Friedrichstrasse. Excellent location with the Stadmitte underground stations and Gallerie Lafayette a few steps away. Checkpoint Charlie is a nice 10 mins walk away and i walked to Brandeburg Gate and the Parliament/ Bundestag from there too.

Mandala also has a German restaurant downstairs - Maximilian - if one does not fancy a walk. In the morning, you can find a few cafes offering breakfast spread as early as 7 a.m.

The rooms/ suites are spacious with daily change for clean towels. Security is tight too as requires a key card to move up and down the elevator.

Overall, i had a pleasant stay at Mandala Suites.

Here the historic, cultural and political highlights of Berlin are lying at your feet, so to speak. Alternatively, you can use the Stadtmitte underground station, which is just one minute away, as your point of departure to conquer the entire city. From there you’ll have ideal connections throughout Berlin. The shopping opportunities on Friedrichstraße, with its elegant department stores and a multitude of small boutiques, are especially attractive. From here it’s also very easy to reach the big malls on Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz.
