Jetzt schon das dritte mal bei einem Städtetrip nach Berlin gebucht, und ist immer noch ein Geheimtipp nur 200 Meter vom Checkpoint Charly entfernt. Auch Brandenburger Tor und Reichstag sehr gut zu fuss zu erreichen. Wir haben nicht gefrühstückt und können deshalb nichts über das Essen sagen. Aber das Hotel ist einfach klasse und immer den Preis wert.Comment of M. Roman , Switzerland the 2016-01-25
"Great location, nice room, good value"
The Mandala Suites is an apartment-style hotel in a very good location, near Sentra Berlin Mitte. You will have immediate access to anything you desire from here. The hotel has a minimalistic reception/front desk service that is not open around the clock. The hotel is integrated into a building along with other businesses and venues, but this does not cause any inconvenience in any way. The staff was very friendly and forthcoming. The room was BIG! Separate living room and kitchenette is very convenient. Excellent cleanliness and preparation, without anything unnecessary. Great value for money. Nice for both a few nights but also a long-term stay. Would definitely stay here again!
"Excellent well located accommodation, the breakfast with a stunning view is superb and service smiling"
The location is great at the very centre of the city with a metro station that is on two main lines (east-west and N/S. Flats are well designed with a nice bed and comfortable furniture. Nice bathroom and dressing with a well equipped small kitchen that allows you to cook in the evening (though we didn't do it). The breakfast at 8th floor is stocked with beautifully arranged cups of all types of salads, fruits in a great variety of tastes, several types of bread, sausages, cheese. You're able to really brunch: though the quantities are small, the cups are refilled and the place is gorgeous, commanding a stunning view to the west (Potsdamer Platz, Siegesaüle, Tiergarten etc) with a beautiful light. The service is very smiling and helpful and the breakfast definitely adds to the "Berlin experience" as it helps you start under the best conditions a great day... The only (real) disappointment was the increased price the hotel imposed on us on the 5th night (when booking from Paris). We had already booked 4 nights 12 persons and prepaid and had to pay a a hefty additional on the 5th night 5 of us had to book few days before our arrival as AIR BERLIN went bankrupt and we couldn't get any flight back before the day after. In any other place of high standing we know (and we travel quite a lot) the management would have extended a similar price as they don't need to change the beds and have only marginal costs. They did a very little commercial effort and reduced the extended price by 20 EUR (ending in an extra cost of 20 EUR which is...as Germans say "seer kleinig"°). his was all the more shocking as we found reduced prices on booking.com the day we left, that were significantly lower for a single suite than the price we paid (we prepaid 6). Yet we spent an overall excellent stay, hence the 5 stars. Ein wenig Grosszügigkeit would be highly welcomed to really be at high standards.
We recently stayed for four nights in a business suite at the Mandala Suites. They are in a perfect location for exploring Berlin, on Friedrichstraße, between Checkpoint Charlie and the Brandenburg Gate. An underground train stop is almost outside. Our suite was spacious and well equipped, with a sitting room, kitchen and a bedroom with a very comfortable bed. It had two balconies,overlooking a small residential square and was very quiet for somewhere so central. The whole suite was spotless and attractively furnished. It was serviced like a hotel, cleaned every day, with clean towels and the mini bar restocked. The breakfast room was on the top floor with a view of Berlin. There was an excellent buffet selection, from cereals ,fruit, smoked salmon, meats, cheeses, pastries and breads. It was all delicious and replenished frequently. Service was excellent. The reception is not always manned, but the staff were polite and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend the Mandala Suites to anyone staying in Berlin.
"Big room, good location, quiet"
I had booked a management suite. It was a very big room, a big hallway, a small walk-in closet, a safe, a bathroom and a small kitchen. It was very convenient, clean and very quiet. The location was good with a lot of shops (including a supermarket) nearby. I would certainly recommend these apartments. I did not use breakfast. A minor issue: the microwave was complicated to use (and no instructions or anything). Also: there is no 24/7 reception available. This was not a problem for me but might be good to know. Wifi was good. There was a small balcony but this was a bit disappointing. More like a iron box hanging from the window than a real balcony. Scary to stand on since you could see through the floor to the street.
"Would definitely stay here again"
We loved the Mandala Suites. Our room (Management Suite) was huge, quiet, tastefully decorated with a good size kitchen and bathroom, plus 2 massive walk in robes and an entry hall that could almost be another room. A large bank of floor to ceiling windows spanned from one wall to the other, making it really light and airy, but with heavy curtains that could be pulled across for sleeping. Mandala Suites are located in a safe and quiet area which was really central for our needs, easy to walk to places but right by Stadmitte underground if required. We found restaurants and cafes within a very short walk. It is an all suite property without all the extra facilities of a hotel, however it was everything we needed at a reasonable price. They do offer breakfast but having a kitchen we made our own. If I return to Berlin I would definitely stay here again.
