Hotel Mozart2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
the hotel is in a good central location near the Museumplein and the Leidseplein with plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and tram stops. The rooms were clean. Unfortunately, we had booked a twin room but what we got was essentially a single room with two single beds crammed in. There was a rail with about three hangers on so nowhere for two people to store clothes, luggage etc. Trying to get from one side of the room to another was like trying to navigate an obstacle course. Added to which the room was stifling hot day and night with no air conditioning. The worst part was there was no safe in the room. We were told we could use the safe at reception but could only store documents and not money. Having stopped in hotels in the New York, Singapore, Australia and various parts of Europe this is the first hotel I've stopped in without either a safe in the room or reasonable access to one in reception? A major failing in my opinion!
Stayed from the 9th - 12th June as part of a budget trip around Western Europe (and for my birthday). Hotel is right on the Prinsengracht, within a walking distance from everywhere from the main train station (not with luggage) to Anne Frank's House and beyond. Couldn't have asked for a better location in the city. Reviews claimed that people had canal views which we were excited for but we weren't that lucky - but at least canal views are available for some! Staff were also very friendly, and the hotel provides voucher cards for attractions and restaurants around the city. Rooms were very small, and stiflingly hot, but they were comfortable. The beds were comfy despite the heat. Rooms come with several plug sockets, a fan, a TV with channels in a number of languages. The bathroom was bright and clean, with a good shower. We weren't a fan of the lift or the steep stairs, but these were all small sacrifices for the location. Wifi was ok - not the best but not the worst. (If staying in this hotel, the best tip I can give is that the prices in the vending machine for soft drinks is better value than anywhere within the immediate area).
The room was for my self and my father we had a double that was not small but not massive so I suppose it was just the right size. Ot was clean and tidy, the bed was comfortable, the wifi worked well. I was really surprised by the shower that was wonderful after a full days sightseeing, powerful and hot, just what I needed. The hotel is located a 10 minute tram ride from the main station and was a 5 minute walk from the stop . so it was really easy to get from the airport to the hotel. I am really pleased that the hotel was good as I am going again tomorrow with my girlfriend!
The location is good, a 15-20 min walk from the 'Center' which is fine in the day, but not so fun when you are drunk at night and everywhere looks the same. Taxi did the job. During the day we hired bikes which was by far the best way to get about. The hotel was clean, close to shops, bars and restaurants. There were two cafes very close by. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay again.
450 euros for what? for one night in may, in a tiny 3 bedroom room with no AC, no wardrobe, a leaky shower hose, a missing lid on the toilet seat, a dirty carpet. At least the staff was friendly (that's why I didn't put terrible as a review, but then you could argue that all Dutch staff are friendly) . Oh and you want me to pay for breakfast after having paid 450 for one night around 200 for the next night. Awful value , great location for museum , have breakfast at cafe van odette
Starting with the good: the rooms were clean and the location terrific. That said, there was little else to recommend this hotel. The rooms were minuscule and WAY overpriced at more than $300 a night. For half that price we might not complain, but actually we felt totally ripped off, which then tends to color the experience of the city. The room was so small that it was difficult for two people to navigate at one time, and it certainly wasn't a place of respite for tired travelers. We were shocked at how little we got for our money.
We were given a tiny room that was dark and dismal. With one window that looked into the neighboring window so could not even open the curtains. The carpet was dirty. It was so hot in the room even though it was cold outside we had to run the fan all night. The fire alarm in the room across from us went off three times and made us nervous and unable to have a good nights sleep. No room for our bags, and no room in the bathroom to get out our cosmetic bags. The pictures they post are much nicer than the room we got.
The room's floor was dirty as hell. There were three beds for little space and no room to put our clothes and stuff. We had to jump over our loggage to get through the room and to reach the bathroom which was also narrow and dirty (stains on the shower curtain). The breakfast room was in the entry hall and we had to cope with the fact that people went through the entry hall while we were trying to eat calmly. We expected something a lot better since we paid 300 euros per night (being 3 people). One waiter was particularly unfriendly and lacked of courtesy (for instance he jumped into the garbage to "tide it", making a lot of noise, as we were calmly playing scrabble next to him). Parking was expensive too : 30 euros per day though we read that the hotel included the parking as it was writtent : "Hotel with parking". Thus we didn't understand right away that the parking cost one more. I do not recommand this hotel ! Do not come in.
I did like the place - the only thing was making me nervous - people going in the elevator in socks (they went out in socks in February) and the parking service. We sent our car for cheaper parking, and we were waiting for that too long, after the time we requested it back. But still it was cheaper, than to keep it in the parking in the city center. Location was good - we could walk to city center by foot. Rooms were fine, and we could sleep well.
Pluses: The location is great with canalside views and very convenient. Walking distance of major museums such as Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum plus shops and the street behind has a good choice of restaurants serving a variety of cuisine. To explore further afield you can walk along the canals or take the tram from the bridge tat the corner of the street. The 197 bus to/from the airport stops just round the corner. We found the staff friendly and helpful and our room was comfortable with a clean modern bathroom. Minuses: Small room with no wardrobe or drawers for clothes, just two shelves and three hangers suspended from the wall plus a cramped self service area at breakfast time meant that this is maybe a little expensive for what is on offer (4 nights cost us £770 for a double room but we went at Easter and it might be cheaper at other times) I've given it four stars as the location, and convenience plus friendliness of the staff made this an above average experience and three stars = just "average" on tripadvisor. However if there was a "good" rating this would be fairer than "very good" . The the lack of wardrobes and size of the rooms plus breakfast area which is too cramped when the hotel is full let the side down.
