“Business & Pleasure in the middle of it all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Stayed at The Mandala Hotel in Berlin from July 25-28. Booked into room 612. Large suite with a walk in closet, small office/desk in the corner and spacious bathroom.

The room was facing the inner courtyard, just above the glass roof of the restaurant below. The bed was very comfortable with two different pillows.

Breakfast in the restaurant on the 5th floor was good too. There was a breakfast buffet and you were able to order eggs cooked your way from the waitress.

The hotel has a small bar area and a small lobby.

Behind the hotel was a shopping mall with a variety of shops and across the street was a movie theater.

Overall, the service was good and very attentive.

If you are thinking of going to Berlin, this place is highly recommended. It is very close to Brandemburg door (15 minutes walk) and central to many places, plus in front of the Berlinale. It is incredibly confortable for the position but for the room as well.
This time I booked a suite for my family. It was spacious, well clean, practical and confortable. The most confotable thing was the bed; great matress!!! Something often bad in more luxury hotels I have been. The bathroom spacious, modern and not any stupid useless design.
Overall a positive experience. One thing I would improve is the hall, too small when there is the peak time of people, but apart from this, everything was just perfect.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Mandala hotel. The executive suite we booked was really excellent. Huge, comfy and spotlessly clean.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

Cocktails in Qui bar were unusual and delicious.

Only slight snag was thin & weedy pillows - you may need to ask for extra ones.

Mandala is a very well run hotel with a great mood and ambience. Five stars means that the service is excellent. This can mean perfunctory and efficient, but in this case it is friendly and welcoming as well. The hotel is very well located to get to everything in Berlin being right next to both S and U train systems, but you can walk to many places. The location is brilliant. If you like shopping it is next to one of the Berlin's favourite shopping arcades . At the moment you would NOT want to be on or near Unter der Linden as they will be digging it up for the next year or so as they lay more underground lines, so Potsdammer Platz works very well. There are a multitude of eateries nearby , but I have to mention the restaurant actually in Mandala, called Facil. We had three course lunch, wine, dessert wine, and a couple of little complimentary tastes that the chef sent out and the bill came to 150 euro with the tip. the same meal in Paris would have been three times as much if you were lucky. I can only say it was simply exquisite and one of only 4 or 5 two Michelin star places in Berlin. While on the subject of reasonableness, hotels in Berlin generally, are good value for money. There is nothing worse than being cramped when paying for a good hotel room, but these rooms are generous and luxurious. Just a small point, but I prefer a double duvet not two singles on a double bed, even if the linen is luxurious. The rooms are simply, but beautifully, appointed. If you are into pampering, there is a lovely spa and gym. I do not often give 5 stars , but this is well deserved. Just do it . You won't go wrong booking the Mandala. I would use it again.

Room Tip: the suite was well worth it.

The hotel is a 5-star boutique style. We booked a 'management suite' which had a kitchenette area, seating area, walk-in closet, king-size bed, balcony and a very large bathroom. All very nice and clean.

The Facil restaurant apparently has 2 stars but was fully booked so we were unable to try it. Book in advance if you want to try it. The Oui bar was great for cocktails. Staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't try the spa - ran out of time.

Breakfast was not included in my room rate and I thought it was expensive. Breakfast was very nice but there are good options elsewhere at more reasonable prices. A good example is KaDeWe.

The hotel was very easy to find at Postsdamer Platz with easy access by train from Schonefeld airport. Transport links were excellent having U and S-bahn trains, regional trains, a bus stop outside and plenty of taxis, if required. The area is vibrant, the hotel is opposite the Sony Centre which has cinemas, bars, restaurants. There are theatres, a shopping arcade, museums, more restaurants right on the doorstep. It is within reasonable walking distance of the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag. We hired bikes from the hotel which were good quality but expensive compared to other bike hire places. Overall a great stay.

Room Tip: Book the Facil restaurant in advance to be sure of getting a table.

The room (executive suite at a discount rate) was the best ever. The forniture is top quality and the design helps relax. The bathoroom is just fantastic.

Breakfast is very good and served in a very nice setting, although quite expensive.

The only inconvenience I tested is the hall, which is almost inexistent - a small corner just beyond the sliding doors where guests checking in/out struggle to stay in line as they are in the middle of the entrance.

Room Tip: check for the online discounts for advance booking
