Butterscotch & Chocolate


l2We received the warmest of welcomes when we checked in for our overnight stay at Moziac Hotel in The Hague. Housed in a converted late-19th century townhouse the boutique hotel was full of charm and had a distinctly homey feel which was reflected in both the décor and service. Although we’d arrived a few hours ahead of the scheduled check-in time, we were made to feel right at home as we were led to the stylish yet cosy lounge where we were offered complimentary coffee and sweets while we waited for our room to be ready.

In no time at all we were being led to our room on the first floor. The white colour scheme created a sophisticated feel which was accentuated by splashes of pastel for added warmth. We were thrilled to find we’d been allocated a corner room, with impressive high ceilings and tall windows to match, which filled the room with natural light. The room was modern and comfortably furnished, with a couple of comfy lounge chairs, a flat screen television and iPod docking station. A feature wall covered in wall paper with a bookshelf design was a nice touch, as were the bathrobes and slippers, not to mention the super comfortable bed. It’s no wonder the hotel has recently been awarded the Netherlands’ Modern Luxury Award.

The warmth of the interior space and the attentive service made us feel so at home, it’s hard to believe the Mozaic Hotel has 25 rooms in total, including some suites and family rooms. This small luxury hotel is a great find in the heart of the Hague. The only drawback was that our stay here was much too short!

m1For me, the entrance of any establishment is always the most important part. This first impression plays a big role in setting the tone and letting  customers know what’s in store for them. When we arrived at the Mozaic Hotel and rang the door bell, it was more like arriving at a friend’s house than at a hotel. The lobby was warm and welcoming, with a beautiful interior that made me feel as through I’d just arrived at a French provincial home.

We were greeted by a sea of white and pastel shades, with a contrasting black staircase leading us to our room overlooking the street below. The room was very spacious and bright, and the space was used really well. The bathroom flowed directly from the bedroom, and despite having no door, the clever design created an open yet separate space which helped to make the room feel even bigger. The bathroom itself was excellent with a large rainfall shower which was the main highlight for me!

The location was perfect too, midway between the city centre and the Scheveningen beachfront, both within walking distance. The Peace Palace, The Hague’s most photographed building, was also just up the road where I was able to join all the other happy-snapping tourists without standing out too much. After exploring and eating our way around the city, it was nice to come back to our comfy room and hop into bed. And even though it seemed strange at first to have two single quilts on the double bed, at least it meant that I didn’t have to worry about Bec hogging the blanket for once – I had one all to myself!
