“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I recently spent 5 nights at The Mandala on a pleasure trip to Berlin. Having traveled throughout the world I have experienced many types of hotels. The Mandala was a wonderful hotel. From my early in the day arrival for which I was accommodated to any questions, service was first rate. But perhaps the best things about the hotel were the location, just off Potsdamer Platz and the room itself. Clearly a lot of care and thinking went in to the design and layout. Lighting, linens and an extra large bathroom, outside deck all were terrific and made for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. I would enthusiastically recommend The Mandala.

Booked in as a short leisure break for the weekend. I was glad of the previous reviews so not surprised by the small reception area. Staff v friendly and helpful on check in. Room was v nice (we booked the 'management suite' - one up space wise from the entry level studio room). Good value space at this price range. Though having booked it as a weekend escape from work, I'd have liked it to be called something less business-like.

Good facilities and just worth it for a bit of hanging around elbow room in the room. Not entirely convinced about the location of the translucent bathroom door beside the bed. One perhaps hears too much of ones beloved's bathroom experience!

It was also well worth paying for the breakfast as par of the room price at time of booking. You could get through a good part of the day on the extensive and excellent breakfast buffet plus hot cooked food on offer.

Location is ideal. You can walk straight up to the Brandenberg Gate and then a good walk to the Museum Island, and you are also right on top of the museum district locally. Ideal.

Stayed four nights in a City Studio. The room was excellent, with a nice bed. Furnishings are of good quality, and there was a walk in closet.

Staff was very service minded and helpful. Note the late 15:00 check IN time.

Great location, 1 minute walk to the Potsdammer Platz S/U/Rail station

Oui lounge (bar) was nice, good ambience.

My only gripe was that the restaurant, though probably nice for fine dining in the evening is so small that it cannot cope with breakfast. To arrive each day (!) for breakfast only to be told there is a 10-15 minute wait to get a table, I´m sorry that is just not acceptable for a hotel in The Mandalas price range! Get room service if you are on a tight time schedule in the morning, if you want to eat that is!

Practicalities like that matter, and keeps the score short of excellent.

The area to check in was a bit small and cramped and the staff was a bit cold and distant but the hotel itself is wonderful.
I got a suite as I was traveling with a family of 4. They were very helpful in accommodating us by giving 2 rollaways ( most hotels in Europe do not allow a 4th person in the room). The room was emaculate , very large with a wet bar and refrig, the beds really comfortable and the decor very sleek and modern.
The location was great ( across the street from a really interesting film museum ) and a close distance to many important sights. Suggest you do most of your sightseeing research on your own as there is no "concierge" that sits and prepares your day. The staff trys to be helpful while doing this with you but definitely doesn't show much interest. I would definitely recommend staying here as the common areas are lovely and the rooms beautiful and very clean.

Just got back a very happy person from this amazing hotel.

Location is perfect - less than a minute walk to postdamer platz and underground.
Less than a minute walk to a shopping mall, restaurants and everything you need.

Hotel is amazing - staff very helpful and always with a smile.
Rooms - we stayed in the management suite which was perfect.
Spacious, big bathroom and bathtub, a veranda - which was wonderful to sit outside and have a beer.
Big walk in closet - good for all the shopping..
Free wifi which is brilliant and a Samsung tablet! What fun!
Breakfast - everything you need and just yummy!
Spa - wow. Wonderful.

My only compliant is the bed - it's not a 5 star one.. And was actually small and a bit on the hard side.

Either than that all was perfect.

Don't think twice about reserving this hotel, I can not wait to return :-)

the entrance and checking in is a bit small and I started to worry but when I arrived to my room I was so pleased, big modern but comfortable, spacious bathroom
we were here only for one night so we had room service because it was snowing and it was really good and comfy to just stay in
Breakfast is served in a pretty glass room so you feel you are almost outdoor, beautifully served and we the best buffet I have ever seen Just Great

Excellent hotel. Upgraded to a huge room. Fantastic bathroom. Great location. Christmas market outside the hotel. Drank and ate in the Sony centre. Did the hop on hop off bus for sightseeing. Well worth the 22 euros. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Ou breakfast was included. Booked through secret escapes
