Hotel Mozart is on a very small pedestrian street, Via de' Greci, which connects the Via del Corso and Via del Babuino.It is a charming cobblestone street, but VERY DIFFICULT to take a suitcase on; therefore, since the taxi couldn't get into the street, and could only stop on the Via del Babuino side which is the farthest side from the entrance, it wasn't easy to drag along a suitcase on wheels. Take that into account if you are carrying a large and/or heavy bag.
Once inside, the hotel is very pleasant, but the room I asked for- a double for single use, overlooking an internal courtyard (number 322)- meant that one had to go up and down some small staircases, and without help from a bellboy, it would have been a bit difficult. Also, the courtyard was actually the back of a neighboring house. I was lucky to see a terrace covered with plants and flowers, but it could also have had laundry hanging out.
The room was a decent size, had good hanging space, but one thing lacking was the absence of proper drawer space.Nor was there a full length mirror in the room, only 2 three quarter length mirrors. One other thing that was strange were the rather old fashioned telephones, which didn't allow for a flashing message sign or voice mail. Since cellphones do not work at all in the hotel, one must use the land line.Lastly, the lighting was not very good, so much so that one evening I selected a pair of tights thinking they were black, and only when I got outside did I discover they were purple!
But now for the good parts: the room was generally comfortable,particularly the bed, which had an excellent mattress, though the pillows were a bit too soft for my liking. The bathroom, which had a laundry line in the shower, always a great convenience, was a nice size and had good amenities/
The hotel has a marvelous roof garden, open only in the summer, but I was able to see it, and enjoy the amazing view over the city.In the winter, there is a lovely lounge and bar available in the afternoon and evenings with comfortable couches, a tv, newspapers, internet point, and generally a very cozy atmosphere. There is also a little cafe/restaurant
attached to the hotel, called La Luna d'Oro, which many people from the neighborhood frequent. It is open till 9 pm, and they give a small discount to hotel guests.
The breakfast room is decorated in pale green and the staff even wear shirts to match, to complete the feeling of cool charm. The choice for breakfast is fairly good, but, as a vegetarian, it would have been nice to have smoked sliced salmon and not just sliced meat available.By Italian standards it was a very nice breakfast, with fresh fruits and vegetables available besides the usual bread, cereal and pastry fare. What was very nice was the fact that at the buffet table each person could fill a whole tea/coffeee pot and take it to the table, thus having enough without having to bother to get up or ask the staff.
The hotel also provides another room in the basement with 3 internet points, all for use without payment.
The one thing that is confusing is the separation of 2 different elevators for different floors.
The staff was courteous, but I cannot say that they went out of their way to be extremely helpful, and that despite the fact that I speak fluent Italian and have no problem of communication.
Nonetheless, I would certainly recommend the hotel highly and go back myself. It is a perfect location and very convenient for both walking and public transportation.
