Hotel Mozart

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My friends and I stayed here during our two day visit. The room was small there wasn't much space for luggage. We had a ground level room with no closet. The bathroom had a weird musty scent however it seemed clean enough. Location was good about 30-35 mins from the airport via the 397 bus (buy a ticket with a return trip for 10 euros. Good for two weeks) then it's about a 6-8 mins walk. About a 5 min walk to the museum area (easy to go visit Van Gogh) Bars and "coffee shops" right next door. Friendly staff and decent place to make base camp and explore the city.

It is well situated on Prinsengracht, within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars, boat trips, shops, museums and parks. We paid extra to have a view of the canal but only a few rooms have one. Our room was small but sufficient with two comfortable single beds pushed together. The staff were welcoming and helpful and provided us with a softer pillow and an extra duvet during the very cold weather (although the large room radiator provided plenty of heat). The windows are single-glazed so it was sometimes noisy – more so in the summer, presumably, if the windows have to be open for ventilation. There was no wardrobe, only a small hanging space with four hangers and a small shelf, and nowhere to unpack. There was one folding stand for our suitcase, where we left the majority of our clothes. The bathroom was small but adequate with a shower over the bath, hairdryer and soap & shampoo in dispensers – again, shelf space was very limited. There are no tea and coffee facilities in the room but unlimited free supplies of good quality hot drinks and fruit in the seating area at reception where a simple breakfast is also available every morning for the reasonable price of 8 euros. There is limited scope for changing the lovely tall and thin Amsterdam buildings and the Mozart Hotel makes good use of what it has. It's very suitable for a short break in a lovely city.

We arrived at the hotel at 7:30 pm after a long day of travel. We rang the bell and waited, and waited, and waited, outside in the cold. We rang the bell again and waited, and waited, and waited, outside in the cold. We rang the bell again waited until finally an exasperated guest opened the door because the clerk was nowhere to be found. We waited another ten minutes inside before my wife began to wander the halls looking for the clerk. She finally found the clerk and we were able to finally check in 24 minutes after ringing the doorbell. The clerk got to the front desk and asked us what we wanted, as if this was not obvious from the bags. She treated us as if we were interrupting her night, no apology for making us wait, barely a greeting, even. It was the most surreal experience. The hotel itself was below average. We had a tiny room, but it was sufficient. The location is excellent but for the price there are many, many better options in the neighborhood. MOZART HOTEL was a fail.

We stayed in the Hotel Mozart at the beginning of March. We kind of booked the hotel last minute as a couple. It is pretty central 20-30 min walk to pretty much all the tourist points of dam, or there is also a tram stop at the end of the road (No's 1, 2 & 5) which take you to the red light, dam square, central etc etc. The hotel is your typically standard hotel, pretty small rooms, but you pay for what you get! No kettle in the room for teas and coffees, but there's free tea and coffee downstairs! Although, we were never in it as we were out all days! The staff are friendly, and the hotel was pretty clean! From the Airport, you just get a train (approx 20 mins) to the centraal, and then a tram, either number 1, 2 or 5 to Prinsengracht (literally a couple of mins) and then your there! I would recommend this hotel if you want something cheap and cheerful, and not too far out :)

For the price I can't find something to complain about. Great location. You can walk to everything on your to-do and see list. Staff very friendly. Assisted with questions we had. Rooms very clean. Near good and affordable restaurants. First time visiting and would return again

The room had all the basics and its located fairly well (about 20 minutes walk from the red light). The staff seemed friendly too, except for the condescending attitude they had towards me when I told them my phone went missing. They seemed to believe it was impossible for the cleaners to steal property. I left my phone to charge on my bed, when I came back it was gone. I used the find my phone app on android which shown me the phone was in the vicinity of the hotel for the remainder of the day. I've just arrived home and looked again, and its on the move. So it seems to me that someone in the hotel did in fact find it but refused to tell me. If you stay here don't leave any personal belongings out in the open, also there is no safe for you to leave money in your room.

No heating in the bathroom, which is not ideal in winter in such a cold city. The bath curtain was full of mold, and because of the cold the towels smelled a bit. The carpet in the room was very old and stained. The location was beautiful though, just on the canal, 5 minutes walking to the museums area and 10/15 mins to Dam Square and the Red District Area. The staff was polite and prepared. The bed was comfy.

Third time for me as a solo traveller in the mozart. SIngle room is small but adequate and clean. Good wifi on all floors. Only problem was that on a couple of occasions, there was no-one on reception to deal with issues (checking in and returning late). Would still go back. Brilliant location.

I was really confused reading reviews of hotel Mozart. This is me and my boyfriends second time staying here and both times had a perfect stay. The location is fantastic, central and close to everything you need in Amsterdam. The lobby is great and provides free coffee, water and fruit daily. The staff are more than helpful and polite. The rooms are small but perfect for a short city break! Never had any trouble with cleanliness either. Overall a great place to stay, I would not be put off by reviews on here!

We stayed in room 003, its tiny with twin beds pushed together to make a double with single quilts on each. The room was warm, the quilt thing was fine with me because my girlfriend couldnt hog the quilt. The only issue with the size was the bathroom door hit the bed. No kettles in the room but coffee is free in reception, the big issue is 1 plug socket in a 2 person room is a no no, we ended up at a super market buying a multiplug, but that being said it was 3Euro for the plug. The hotel is situated perfectly, trams are very very nearby, the road and canal is quiet and pretty, the staff were trully excellent, stored our bags before and after we were guests. Would we be back? Yes, but pick a more expensive room with a canal view.
