“Strange and Disappointing Experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

First of all, the rooms are well furnished and the beds are comfortable.

However, calling this a Hotel is a stretch. The building is shared with other 'hotels', essentially groups of rooms with makeshift reception areas set over an outdoor quadrangle of sorts, with little-to-none of the usual hotel facilities.

The poor review score is based on our experience with the receptionist. Three rooms were booked in our party, one booking was cancelled as the pre-auth failed but they neglected to inform us. The receptionist had no rooms to offer, had no alternative suggestions, and had the cheek to charge us 35 euros for an extra bed to be added to what as already a quad room.

Disappointing experience, poor customer service, won't be returning!

We used triple room for 2nights. This hotel is recommended for its cleaness and safety. All of staffs are also kind. Its location is little bit far away from main sightseeing sites and they don't service any breakfast meal. But it is possible for all type of tour.

Building: The hotel was built only a few years ago; but to reach my room I had to walk through the "courtyard" and this wasn't very nice in the morning with the fresh air...
Room: Although I had booked a normal "twin ensuite" (and not the small twin ensuite), the room was rather small. Rooms are essential but ok and very clean. Not very soundproof, I heard the people walking along the corridor. Showers without curtain or similar.
Location: a bit far from central station but close to the museums.
Other services: The staff is ok and you can have juice and the for free. They didn't answer a mail of mine.
Price: rather cheap (I paid around 50€).

I did find the hotel a bit hard to find, but once I was there I have to say I had a very enjoyable stay. I was only there for one night, and I'd booked very last minute (the day before), but the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and well presented, the beds were amazingly comfortable, and the area felt safe.
The only negative point was that they gave me the key to a room with someone still asleep in it; but to apologise they upgraded me to a triple room.

The hotel is very modern. The people are very friendly and made discount with parking! Only the room is a little cold but it's ok for a one night stay. Also they offer free coffe at the reception. They give a free city map and tell about what to do around.

Just returned from Amsterdam and stayed at the Mosaic. Calling this a hotel pushes the bounds of reality. The only thing place is suitable for is literally if you are a student or on a drunken stag night. If you expect anything better you'll be disappointed. As for security, ring the door bell on the ground floor and the door entrance to the block is opened then its straight up to the entrance door of the room. As you can see from the pic its extremely cramped for 3 people.

No way would we go back there.

Room Tip: Best advice I can give is keep walking past!

Visited on 28th October 2013. Despite previous reviews the hotel was easy to find and had very good security. The neighhbourhood felt very safe especially when travelling with children. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful offered us free tea and coffee upon arrival. We had a triple room which was very clean with very comfortable beds. The only downside was the wet room which although it was very modern everything within it got vey wet when the shower was used.
Overall I would have no hesitation recommeding or returning to this hotel.
