If you are thinking about this hotel, dont think no more just book it. Elegant, luxurius and comfortable the rooms are just fantastic. Incredibly spacious with a walk-in wardrobe, a kitchen area, a living room area, the bedroom and very big bathroom. The thought has really gone into the detail in this place and you almost wish you could spend more time lounging in it rather than go out. The food there is absolutely fantastic, the restaurant has a michelin star and the breakfast tasted michelin stared too! It is next to big shopping centers, restaurants, the train / underground station and walking distance to the museums. Anything you need the staff will help you with.

They even have a frame for you to put in a picture of your loved ones and make you feel at home ; )

Very good hotel with a friendly reception, spacious rooms, great location and new furniture. We may definitely stay again if we visit berlin. The casino and great restaurants are just 1 block away. The hop on bus stops in front of the hotel, just do try.

Great rooms,. Suited for very long stay in Berlin, with separate kitchen corner, a walk through wardrobe, cosy sitting corner and large bathroom. Pricey, but value for money. Very nice breakfast space with kind of "on roof" garden.

In a very nice position, in Postdammer platz, close to the metro.
The rooms are large, clean, with all the comfort you can desire.
Very quite, with an incredible SPA at the top.
The breakfast is unforgerable.
Is not cheap, but sometime....

We stayed here last November. The room was large but just like an office and furnished that way; certainly not boutique. OK location but there must be better hotels in Berlin. Great breakfasts and the restaurant has a good reputation but we didn't dine there.

Very spacious and well designed room with lots of natural light and a great view of the Potsdamer Platz. The big bathroom and large walk in closet made getting ready a pleasure. Fantastic spa and sauna and a wonderful lounge with an interesting drink menu and delightful staff. We had two delicious lunches at Facil, the restaurant on the fifth floor terrace. Attentive waitstaff, inventive food, eye catching presentation and superb wines by the glass. Definitely will return to dine there even if we aren't staying at the hotel. We usually stay with friends across town but this was a nice change for us: relaxing, peaceful and conveniently located. Close to the subway and walking distance to many attractions. Highly recommended!

The Mandala is very well located on Potsdamer plats with easy access anywhere in central Berlin, walking distance to most attractions (Kultur forum, Branderburg gates, Unter der linden, Bundestag, etc.) The design and functionality is similar to a Swissotel chain. Breakfasts are very good, with option to order fresh cooked eggs any style, selection of cheeses and meat cold cuts, roasted vegetables and your choice of tea or any coffee drink, freshly squeezed juice, sparkling wine, etc. The beds and linens are of high quality though the mattresses are on the rough side (as in most places in Germany) Stayed at the manager's suite and it was of very good size with a divider separating the seating area and the bed, big bathroom with 1 sink and a bathtub, big walk-in closet and a very functional kitchenette. The staff are eager to help.
