0.35km from Kamps BackstubeWe stayed at the Mandala Suites in mid-September, 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Probably because few were traveling at that time, we had an amazing rate for this huge, wonderful room. It's actually an entire apartment with a complete kitchen, living room, and bedroom. The toilet and a sink are in a separate room from the shower and a sink. And the room has a huge entry area and lots of closet space. And the location is PERFECT! Not knowing Berlin, I didn't realize that this is THE street you want to be on. It's been closed to vehicles and has a bicycle path down the center, as well as lots of restaurants and coffee shops with tables out on the sidewalk. It's walking distance to everything you want to see. I was so pleased to realize what a great location this is. Back to the room. It's just lovely. There were just a few small things that would make it better. 1. The door was difficult to latch. When you left the room you had to pull the door very hard or it would not latch. Once, when we return to our room after making sure it was latched, it was open again and one of the cleaning staff had left a door card in the slot for the power. It was disconcerting to think that the cleaning staff were not taking care to make sure the door was locked. 2. The shower was one of those that is separated from the rest of the room by a piece of glass. That piece was not very wide, and the shower drain was slow, so water would run into the bathroom when we showered. 3. The safe in our room did not work. We told the reception staff and they did have someone come look at it, but it never did work the entire time we were there. 4. This is not a regular hotel. It's a group of apartments in a large building. There is a reception desk but it is not staffed in the evening. This was not a problem for us, I'm just letting guests know. There was a security guard on the ground floor until midnight or so. Other things to know about this hotel ... It doesn't have its own restaurant, but there is a restaurant and a coffee shop on the ground floor of the building. We ate at both and they were both very good. There are also lots of great restaurants very close. It does have parking beneath the building. You need to reserve this in advance by calling or emailing the hotel. We paid 18 Euros a day for parking, which is about what I would expect in a nice central area of a European city. We felt safe walking in the area at night. Overall, we very much enjoyed staying at this hotel and would stay there again, though I expect we won't be able to afford it once travel picks up post-pandemic.
