... and shot. One thing that was pretty crazy to notice is all the holes in the walls of many buildings. They are from gun shots. They were everywere. We then saw check point Charlie. This was the checkpoint between the soviets and the USA. The Brandenburg gate was the point between the soviets and great Britten. There are so many pieces of history that I am learning by seeing all these places. It also makes you think of how much different countries have ...
... to wait for the parade to come by. Here we waited in front of the Victory Column for an hour or so with the company of three American teenagers on holiday before starting college. They kept us to entertained, especially when they asked wise old Cory for advice in making the best out of their college experience! Cory took this opportunity to play the role of elder statesman by giving them the best advice ever. The kids thanked him over an over and now ...

In an attempt to gain karma points, I paid for my tram ticket once I was finally able to get into the city, something I wouldn't normally do because it's very easy to cheat the tram fares. I speed walked off the tram to get to the bus ...
... reasons/excuses for this but foremost amongst them is probably gluhwein/vodka consumption. I’m not proud of this, of course. Let’s treat the next several paragraphs until breakfast on 1st January as an impressionistic view rather then reportage. I’m fairly certain that the things that I record as having happened actually happened. Is simply that not all of them will have happened in the order that I remember.

Afterwards we were exhausted and ate some currywurst for energy before heading back to our hostel which we have warmed to. Although Mark is convinced that there must be a school group living here because he feels as though we are constantly surrounded by children. Perhaps we are too old to be staying in a hostel.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Mandala Hotel Berlin
No A/C, poor service, but ok
Yes, the place is cool. Yes, some of the rooms are big. But the lack of A/C in most rooms combined with poor service (the staff is surly and often fails to respond to requests) makes this a disappointment. Internet is intermittent.
Ein weiteres empfehlenswertes Hotel in Berlin
Die Lage des Hotels ist sehr gut. Die Räumlichkeiten sind groß. Die Ausstattung ist ganz besonders gut für Geschäftsreisende, die einen längeren Aufenthalt suchen. Das Zimmer, in dem ich mich befand, war mit Vorderblick auf das DB Gebäude und bat eine große Sicht. Das Restaurant war gut und besonders das Gym und die Massage sind einen Besuch wert. Ich hatte mit dem Frühstück ein Problem. Es sah gut aus, jedoch esse ich keinen Fisch zum Frühstück. Das würde ich zu Mittag oder Abends bevorzugen. :)
Ohne Zweifel eine gute Wahl.
Gute Ortslage, komfortabel, moderne und gekühlte Zimmer, höfliches Personal, gutes Frühstück... Ich kann nur Gutes über dieses Hotel sagen. Für meinen nächsten Berlinbesuch werde ich in dieses Hotel zurückkommen.
Dies ist ein Hotel, das musterhaft ist und sich von den anderen nicht nur durch eine kühle Empfangshalle und klassischer Uniform unterscheidet. Die Ortslage ist ausgezeichnet, die Räume sind groß und besonders schön ausgestattet, in denen man sich entspannen kann. Die Betten sind besonders komfortabel, das Personal und ausgesprochen freundlich und aufmerksam. Das Frühstück ist einmalig und wird von mir auf der Liste von guten Hotels weltweit unter den ersten fünf eingeordnet. Ich bereise geschäftlich Berlin zweimal im Jahr und wohne gewöhnlich im Adlon; aber ich habe festgestellt, dass die Preise im Mandala günstiger sind, die Zimmer größer und die Atmosphäre freundlicher und die Ortslage bequemer ist, was für mich in Zukunft meine Unterkunft sein wird. Es bekommt meine besondere Empfehlung!!
Designer hotel with that little bit extra
finally a design hotel that understands that is isn't just the cool lobby and designer uniform that sets the hotel apart. great location, large, relaxed design rooms with really comfy beds, extremely friendly and attentive staff and a fantastic breakfast which ranks now in my top 5 hotel breakfasts worldwide!!!
as a business traveller visiting berlin twice a year, I usually stay at the adlon - but with better prices, larger rooms, more intimate atmosphere and a more convenient location, the mandala will get my business from now on - highly recommended!!
I travel a lot for work, staying mostly in nice hotels, but this hotel has stayed in my mind as a very positive experience. Stayed with my gf in this hotel during a holiday for 3-4 nights last summer - it was still called Madison then, not Mandala. We were going to stay in the brand new hotel Lux11 but they did not manage to open for business in time. No harm done. I think we got lucky, since we got a wonderful top floor corner room with a huge balcony. The staff was absolutely great, very helpful, friendly and professional, and also knew when to keep away. :) Room (or more like apartment) in flawless condition. Great view. Very comfy bed. Sauna and fitness room very very nice. Not exactly cheap, but excellent value for money! Only negative was that while the location is very nice architecture-wise, the nightlife or shopping areas definately are somewhere else. Not a big deal though, since very close to a subway station or easy to get a taxi. Had a good time, a pleasant stay.
A great choice, with no doubt.
Good location, comfortable, modern and cool rooms, polite staff, nice breakfast... I only can say good things about this hotel. So, in my next visit to Berin, I will come back there.
Another great place to stay in Berlin
The hotel is very well located. The apartments are great. Well equipped especially for long term business travellers. The room that i was staying was looking to the DB building in front and has a great view. The restaurant is nice and especially the fitness center and massage is worth to pay a visit. The only problem i had was the breakfast. Its not because the brekafast is not nice, at the contrary it was looking good, but for me that i do not eat fish on the morning. It can be a good course for luch or dinner for me :)
Stayed here whilst attending a wedding at the Adlon last week. A few people stayed here one night and then moved to the Adlon - they preferred the Madison as it is a much more contemporary and cool place to be, Adlon is old school opulence aimed at the older crowd, this place is for the younger, more affluent traveller. Great staff, stylish interior, large rooms with excellent facilities. Staff very conscientious and a very cool bar (even if it does shut at 2am - unusual for Berlin ;o) )
Great location - right in the middle of architect's heaven - spectacular views. Comfortable, stylish rooms (particularly the larger suites). Really helpful staff.
Having a small kitchen (read SMALL) meant being able to have breakfasts and small meals in the room - access to launderies etc also meant being able to live a relatively normal life in an exciting place.
Great wellness facilities. Wonderful sound and TV systems.
Be careful, however, to check there is airconditioning in your room - particularly during summer - could get a bit hot!
