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.
Modell-Hotel mit extra Pfiff
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!!
A very nice experience
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) )
Rooms have plenty space, the suites even have cooking facilities and cd player. Enormous bathrooms and a great view of the Sony Centre opposite. Breakfasts very pleasant - especially on the terrace. Nice shopping centre round the corner with everything you'd ever need. Pleasant 10 min walk from the Brandenburg gate and stunning architecture all around.
Owned by Daimler Chrysler apparently....
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!

... get into all the details because Ric literally spent half an hour standing in the station and telling us this incredible story, but let's just say Jack Barsky's life is fascinating enough to be an episode of 60 Minutes, which it was, recently. It's fascinating enough to have a book written about it, which he's currently doing. And it's fascinating enough to be made into a movie, which it likely will be. Google this guy.

After his reign, the people of Berlin decided they wanted her back, so the marched into the Louvre, brought her back to her rightful place on top of the gate, and they changed her name to Victoria the goddess of victory and they changed the name of the square to the Parisian square, to show victory over Paris. And if you look at her eyes, she is staring right at the French embassy, she always keeps an eye on them. Our ...
... And both Berlins sat a hundred miles inside the Communist Bloc country of East Germany. One western free peoples’ road ran from West Germany through East Germany into Berlin. (Early-on the Russians tried to stop traffic along the west's road. The U.S. responded with the Berlin Airlift which broke the back of that effort.)
So you have the city of Berlin, split down the middle between western and eastern powers, sitting in the middle of East ...

I wasn't sure whether I'd get much out of this even though the subject really interests me - Welsh. It turned out to be superb, not least because the presenter is a university lecturer and he told me that he put a bit of effort into his talk just as he does with his lectures at uni.

... in the centre of the river and about half of it is taken up by museums. I decided to visit the Pergamon museum and was more impressed that I expected to be. The Pergamon alter (which is where the museum gets it's name) is very impressive. When I walked into the room that houses it I actually exclaimed wow. It's giant. I decided I was close enough to walk back to the hostel and I was able to see a bit more of Berlin. It is certainly not as pretty as the other cities I've been too and ...
