    At The Mandala Hotel, service is impeccably professional but never intrusive. Stepping off the well-tread streets of Potsdamer Platz and slipping through an unassuming entrance, guests of The Mandala are met with welcome distractions. The two Michelin-starred restaurant FACIL, one of only five in the city, is hidden on the fifth-floor courtyard, nearly entirely open-air in summer. Chef Michael Kempf's menu emphasizes vibrant fresh vegetables and exotic herbs, meticulously prepared to preserve individual flavors, making for a rare culinary experience. The QIU Restaurant & Bar, located on the first floor of The Mandala creates a refined symbiosis between gourmet location and exclusive club lounge. In the spacious guestrooms, handcrafted tables and ornaments provide solid accents among the soft colors of raw silk curtains and cherry-wood floors. The top-floor ONO Spa is a world of holistic wellbeing high above Berlin, offering panoramic views and indulgent treatments tailor-made for those who value individualism and privacy.

    Rooms & Suites

    Guestrooms at The Mandala, in Berlin, are modern and smartly devoid of trend. Most rooms face the inner courtyard, and service is impeccably professional though never intrusive. Handcrafted tables and ornamental items, such as Chinese stacking drums, provide solid accents among the soft-color palette created by the raw silk curtains, cherry wood floors, and pear tree wood furnishings commissioned exclusively for the hotel. Even the windows work towards creating your inner balance: invisible crystals inside neutralize the electronic smog our technologically advanced life brings with it. Signed black-and-white photographs by Ellen Auerbach complete the style-savvy environment.

    Ulrike Lauber and Wolfram Wöhr

    In an urban center built anew by international star architects, The Mandala Hotel is one of three Potsdamer Platz projects by Ulrike Lauber and Wolfram Wöhr. Windows of the second-floor Qiu Restaurant & Bar hideaway offer glimpses of the city rushing by. The all-suites residence is meant to provide long-term guests discreet relief from the area’s hustle and bustle, with most rooms facing the inner courtyard.


    Modern and Smartly Devoid of Trend

    Interiors pare luxury down to its serene and subtle essence, but spare no expense with furnishings by Donghia and Chinese antiques hand picked by proprietor Lutz Hesse. The handcrafted tables and ornaments provide solid accents among the soft colors of raw silk curtains and cherry-wood floors. The design theme draws parallels with itself in the bathrooms, where light boxes are segmented in a manner similar to the door’s frosted panes. 

    Finding Infinity

    The Pride of Potsdamer Platz

    Set in the heart of Berlin’s newest neighborhood, the regal Mandala Hotel has zeroed in on a zero-waste philosophy that is turning heads in a city long known for its bold sustainability initiatives.

Fifteen years on, Hesse and Andresen still set the gold standard in the never-hipper German capital.
