Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Oceanic Bellariva
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!

... in 1989. The part of the wall we visited was in-front of the Topography of Terrors which is a museum that has been built on top of where the Gestapo and SS headquarters used to be.... Inside of the museum there is a timeline of the rise of hitler and the SS to the fall and arrest of many of the SS soldiers. It was not a very happy place and at times we would have to skip over sections that were too detailed.
Yesterday we visited an area called Museum ...

By the end of World War II, around 30,000 people had been murdered in this camp. Unlike death camps, where prisoners were sent to be exterminated, concentration camps like Sachsenhausen utilized forced labor, humiliation, and ...

We eventually made it to Hohenschonhausen, which had been a sealed off, Stasi-only district of communist East Berlin; the centre-piece of which was a much feared remand prison and that was our destination. It is a fascinating place for many reasons. It is very little changed from its days of operation, and tour groups are guided round by ex-prisoners, so they know what they are talking about.

Charlys mum had made German biscuits and Christmas pudding, and put it in a nice tin for us. They were so rich but so delicious! Charly and Hubert also gave us a beautiful porcelain hollow church in which you put a small candle inside and it illuminates ...
... There are two more Christmas markets near the Kaiser Wilhelm Gedaechtnis Kirche, which is the remains of a famous church that was not completely destroyed during the allied bombing of this city toward the end of WW II. Only the tower (63 meters high) of the memorial church remains standing and it was left as a ruin, in memory of the destruction caused by WW II. It is a Neo-Romanesque style structure that is affectionately called "the hollow tooth" by Berliners.
