Berlin is one of the most affordable big cities in all of Europe, but that doesn't mean that you can't splurge. Want to indulge in a luxurious high-end hotel experience? There are plenty of top-notch Berlin hotels that were rewarded with 5 stars - from designer boutique hotels to old-world chic.
One of my personal favorites is the Mandala Hotel; it is located at Potsdamer Platz, a rather hectic and busy area in Berlin, so stepping into the tranquility of the boutique hotel comes as a relief; Mandala features chic suites that are stylish as well as purist and spacious. The on-site gourmet restaurant FACIL, a modern glass cube with floor-to-ceiling windows that look into a bamboo garden, is the culinary talk of the town; Mandala Spa, set on the 11th floor of the hotel, offers panoramic views of the highrises around you; no wonder it was voted one of the "Best Boutique Spa in the World".
