Me and my friend decided to spend a long weekend in Berlin, as we have never before been to this city. We choose Mandala hotel through a Design hotels chain because of it`s central location between the old easter and western parts of the city. Potsdamer platz, where the Mandala hotel is situated has the most central location. Just a 5 minute walk to the Holocaust`s memorial and Brandenburg`s gate. Around 10 min to go to the Gallery Lafayette and Q206 shopping malls. The hotel itself is very clean and has a homey feeling. We had a suite which had a huge marble bathroom with a balcony. The room is very airy and has lots of light and even the fully equipped kitchen. At Mandala they also have a very nice restaurant Facil. The only unpleasant experience was a hotel`s spa and gym. Though it was not the hotel`s fault. When we were in the sauna/bar area(2 girls actually) men didn`t seem to notice us and took an open shower and visited sauna naked. That was quite embarrassing, so we just left the spa/gym area.
All in all the hotel is really nice!
We would recommend it if you visit Berlin for a weekend.
