“Way below expected,good for Global Training Center visitors”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

I had a training at Global Traininc center so the location was excellent,it was close to many nice restaurants as well: Kings Palace chinese restaurant,Schaben Haus italian restaurant and a mexican restaurant which were of all good quality were min 2 min walking distance.
A disappointing fact about the hotel was that it had no wireless! Even the motels and hostels have wireless today and you would expect that from such a hotel ! Additionally, although i had 3G on my phone it wouldnt work in the hotel,god knows why.Laslty,they offered me cable internet when i asked for wireless which costed 15 €/day !
The staff were friendly and helpful and their breakfast buffet was good, just my taste yum.
I didnt try the sauna which was open till late hours but I didnt like the gym since the equipment they had was quite old and of no good quality.

Modern hotel which for me is about half way between Stuttgart and office. Location is handy for Stuttgart airport. Walking distance to train station (about 15mins journey into centre of stuttgart), but shops and restaurants etc located around the hotel. Check-in was efficient, rooms are ok, beds are quite low down. I thought breakfast was good. Bought the Business package which gives Breakfast and internet access for 20 euro. All staff were pleasant and efficient. Perfectly acceptable for a business trip - when next in the area will stay again.

The hotel is located in Vaihingen, approximately 10 minutes drive from Messe Stuttgart. Room was very clean, but not very comfortable. The hotel is quite new, but lacks a nice athmosphere. Breakfast was good, but not good enough for the price of 20 eur. Wirelless internet in the room did not work. The hotel was ok, but not for the price I paid. 135 eur for the room, 20 eur breakfast, 15 eur internet a day, 15 eur parking a day, which makes it 185 eur a night. I would expect hotel to be a lot more comfortable for the price. It was ok, but nothing special.

We had to go to Stuttgart on short notice, did not find a table on Saturday evening, and ended up here, hoping for a good meal. Whish we never did!
Although, it started off nicely. We were received very politely. The modern restaurant looks very well. Seats are very comfortable. Wine list is short, but well thought, not over expensive.
We decided for the autumn menu, since it was the season.
Greeting from the kitchen was an ordinary paprika soup, after which, I was served grilled duckbreast on pumpkinsalad. That salad was a tasteless grated RAW pumpkin, curled endive without seasoning, overthrown with some lines of reduced Aceto Balsamico. Luckily the meat was good quality, though again, not seasoned well.
My partner had a tasteless pumpkin soup, with what should have been Parmesan foam?
It came even worse: Tournedos of fillet of beef on Pumpkin risotto. Not only did they overcook the risotto, more mash of rice, but they managed to cut that beautiful tender, thick fillet in two. Result: overbaked meat. Why?
The dessert all the more worse: that pumpkin pastry was so hard, you could not cut it. We even tried to tear it apart by hand, it was not to be done. The "Mousse au Chocolat" was pudding instead of mousse. Becoming suspicious I ordered the "Crème Brulée". No luck, it was not more than a vanilla pudding right from a package, with caramellised sugar. I had to give it back to the kitchen since it was not burned enough. After that you could at least eat it.
After repeated complaining they offered us the dessert for free.
The waitress asked if we would like to talk to the chef, since we were not at all satisfied. Well, he comes right from school and knows nothing of the culinary scene. Imagine, he makes that risotto 24h upfront!
Please hotelmanagement, help this friendly guy, send him to follow lessons in the starred and other supergood kitchens that Stuttgart is so renown for!! Or give him a pile of good cookbooks.

I would like to give one more point for the waitress who managed to stay superfriendly and for the nice surroundings, but cannot not, since to our stupefaction, we even had to pay for the parking!

By a strange coincidence, we had booked a business trip to Stuttgart at the same time as the local Cannstatter Volksfest. We were booked at the Mo.Hotel in the Vaihingen suburb, which is a fair distance from the actual city, 30 minutes by train. Fortunately the rail system is excellent and there is a stop only a couple of blocks away from the hotel.

The room, a mo.dule standard, is of average size, but due to the arrangement more than one person per room would have difficulties maneuvering around the furniture and each other. In fact, I would not recommend the standard for more than one person at all, since aside from the bed situation, space is at a premium. The lights and AC need the key inserted into the box by the door in order to work. Predominate colors are white, black, slate gray, and brown with accents of red.

The twin platform beds were comfy enough and could be pushed together to make one large bed. The pillows were extremely mushy however. The "lounge" area next to the window was rather cramped. The furnishings were meant to invoke a minimalist vibe with their sleek white modularity; I suspect Ikea as supplier. There was plenty of shelf and closet space (for one person) and there was a room safe as well. A coffee/tea pot and fixings on the desk were included, as well as bottled water.

There were some odd design choices. The sore thumb in this area? The minuscule flat-screen TV randomly attached to the side of the shelving unit. It was scarcely large enough to be seen from the nearest bed. Next to the TV? A long bare wall, an ideal place for a decent-sized screen. That wall, if not destined for a TV, could have anchored at least a picture or something to distract the occupant from the possibility of something greater.

The bathroom appeared almost as large as the sleep area. The shower was big and with a strong showerhead, but no tub. There was a towel heater; pity the towels themselves were the thinnest and smallest I've ever encountered. Oddly, there were no facecloths. Soap/shampoo and handsoaps are provided via dispensers. Other amenities included a hairdryer and the biggest prize of all - a sewing kit.

Decor-wise, the designers made an odd choice to cover most of the walls with small beige tiles which, while not grossly grotty, weren't pristine either. A shame, as the bath objects were white, sleek, and solid with silver fixtures, and the floor used a great black tile; but the beige dragged the vibe down from almost chic to subway ick.

Other notes -
The hotel's location is stellar, attached to the mall, close to the rail station and several great restaurants and biergartens. Parking was not so convenient, being across the street and costing nearly $20 daily.

The hotel's restaurant, while staffed with wonderful people, was grossly overpriced.

Service overall was very friendly and helpful.

Only some areas of the hotel have wi-fi access.

The average room cost was over $150, not including the daily parking fee.

One can see what the mo.hotel was reaching for in *most* of its design and furniture choices, a chic boutique hotel worthy of a premium price tag. It is almost at that level, but it seemed that when the place was rising to the occasion, some random cheap element was thrown in, and sunk the whole premise. I'd stay here again, but only if the job was also picking up the tab again.

I stayed at the MoHotel on business. The location is great; walking distance to shopping and restaurants as well as light rail; but the rooms are very small. The TV is no more than a average size computer screen; no refrigerator. Clean and comfortable rooms but the price was well over $200/night; way too much for what they offered. The Staff are very professional and courteous; particularly Christina - the front desk operator who was on watch when we checked out. She was very courteous and cooperative and is a credit to the hotel. If one stays in the room merely to sleep, it is adequate; but very lacking in amenities.

Room Tip: No pool and again rooms rated poor due to size.; B'fast buffet good but VERY expensive.
