How to Get There
After 1st night we all, me my wife and son had bites of bedbugs from room 828. We received a new room, but that's all the hotel offered us. We even had to pay doctor ourselves, but got no personal documents for our selves from doctor, but those were handled to reception instead and this is even we asked them for our selves??? Guess the doctor was also a business partner of the hotel. I also wonder what does the GDPR say about this. We didn't get any other assistance but claims that there is no bedbugs in the room(s) which was probably checked by their local business partner after a heavy cleaning of the room the following day. Sometimes it might be better to serve the customer than trying to cover your own back. So, if you choose to stay in this hotel, check the room and hope that you won't have any problems as they are not supporting you with them. We have never had such a problem before, and have now spent a couple of days disinfected all our clothes, bags etc. after the trip. What kind of customer service is to deny all this, when you see the pictures of damage and marks on the linen. Not recommended on any way!
While we did not eat at the hotel --not even breakfast, for we enjoyed going out to Starbucks-- I think the service makes it 5-star. Our standard room was large with an excellent bed (except when you don't like, as we don't, the German bedding with a comforter that is always to hot ... we requested a top sheet, and it was promptly given, like the rubber mat we requested for the bathtub). The bathroom was splendid, all covered in dark and white marble. There was a small kitchenette that we did not use (if I remember, one plug was ut of order and that was not fixed) but tea and coffee. We only had 5 days and I did not have time to try the fitness room, but the hotel was beautifully appointed in tasteful modern style and the location was excellent, despite the cold and impersonal modernity that now characterizes Potsdamer Platz.
It is very close to the central library and the symphony house by Hans Scharoun and also to Mies van der Rohe's superb Neues National Gallerie, which is now being renovated. Several bus lines take you to what was East Berlin and tyou walk to Brandenburg Gate, past the Memorial to the Shoah, in 20 minutes and in 5 minutes to the Martin Gropius Bau. Our room was on Potsdamer Strasse but extremely quiet and the A, which was pre-set, was excellent and much needed in the heat wave we had in late May-early June.
Nice rooms but the air conditioner was not great and the shower leaves a lot to be desired. Very little water pressure. The elevator was fast and the front dest was Fabulous every request was handled. Location is perfect, nice hotel.
As Berlin were expected to hit 30 degrees and sunshine all weekend we wanted to book a hotel with a balcony. Not that we spent much time in the room, but always nice to sit outside when its warm. We ordered late and did not have many options. At the Mandala Hotel we found a 60 sqm room with
Great room - clean, big, nice and cosy
Great location - Berlin is fantastic and the hotel is in the middle of everything
Great service - nice people all over
Great city - so many historic places
