Historical Traveller Reviews of Mondrian Hotel

It all depends on your needs and wants,

from A TripAdvisor Member
A visit to the Mondrian is certainly an experience, whether it is one you would want to repeat is dependent on your interests and indulgences.
For some the Mondrian will be exciting for others a not particularly well run hotel. For me it was a combination. Yes the design is outstanding and it is a very clever use of space, food at Asia da Cuba is delicious and the rooms are comfortable.
The problem rests with the very variable service and sometimes the other guests. This is a meeting place for people who think being seen at the Mondrian will help their showbiz career and people who have saved up their pennies to be seen in a place like the Mondrian.
There are better places to stay and certainly better hotels at looking after customer needs. But then is that what you go to the Mondrian for?

t they?

I've given it a three but nothing about it is average. Everything is either brilliant or awful.

The location is great. The Sky Bar is great. It's also very noisy if you're trying to sleep above it. My friend had to drag his mattress to the bathroom and sleep there to escape the sound of laughing fashionable people at midnight when he was trying to sleep off his jet lag.

And they're right, the fixtures in the rooms are falling apart, and that white minimalist design doesn't mature with age like high quality woodwork does. It just gets shabbier.

Twice I asked them to replace the broken stereo in the room. No-one ever came.

always love it

Grade A Service

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had a number of rooms at the Mondrian for a friend's bday weekend. The service was superb - every staff member was friendly and helpful, bringing up our loads of luggage, buckets and buckets of ice, extra blankets & robes, etc., quickly and always with a smile.

Our favorite, Beatrice, greeted us at breakfast every morning with strawberry mimosas, remembering the bday girl by name, & sending us all off with a warm group hug.

While the hotel is expensive, bkfast & valet parking were included in our room rate. In addition, our suite was well-appointed, & a good size plus view. The pool area was relaxing by day & fun SkyBar people-watching at night, and we had a delicious dinner at Asia de Cuba, with attentive service from Missy, despite our being a rowdy table of 14.

It is cool, but....

from A TripAdvisor Member
This place is very "LA" to an absurd degree. Yes th e SkyBar is the spot, and yes AsiadeCuba is probably the best fusion food in Hollywood/Beverly Hills, and yes the decor and feel of the Mondrian is uber-trendy. BUT, the rooms are terribly uncomfortable and the price is about 50% more than it should be. I'm usually the first to sacrifice a little comfort for the style factor, but this is ridiculous. The bed is a matress on four sticks and there are no drawers anywhere and the furniture is not faux-rundown, but just run down. Its a cool experience, but the Mondrian is simply not worth it. Don't go expecting the same level of hotel as Ian's other properties.

Mondrian has recently undergone a 35 million dollar refurbishment with our re-launch taking place in September of 2008. We have totally renovated and redesigned all 237 of our guest rooms which now include flat screen TV’s, IPOD Docking Stations, business desks, hardwood flooring, rain showers and some rooms with Jacuzzi tubs. As well we have introduced new mattresses, terry, linen and robes.

In addition we have completely replaced our heating/air conditioning system and all plumbing in the hotel. As we are centrally located in the heart of the Sunset Strip we also installed double-paned sound proof windows in all of our guest rooms.

As SKYBAR continues to be one of Hollywood’s best nightspots and Asia De Cuba restaurant still serves up some of the best cuisine around, we are happy to introduce our new destination bar/lounge, ADCB. Asia De Cuba Bar is located in our main lobby and includes a brand new tapas and sushi menu.

Whether you had an awesome visit or not so great experience with us before, we are confident you will love us now

Well worth it depending on what you want

from A TripAdvisor Member
After reading all the negative reviews, I was reluctant to book it but I was looking to take a buddy of mine to Skybar that had never been there. The room the first night was small. We were going to check out but instead, they upgraded us to a corner suite with no extra cost.
Skybar is great with fantastic views and friendly people. The hotel staff was very friendly. The host at breakfast was one of the most personable people I have ever seen in any hotel. Everything in the hotel is pricy...food, drinks, rooms...EVERYTHING, but if you are there to mingle and have fun, I would stay there every time. If I was married with kids, I'd stay elsewhere. You can't ask for a better spot on the Sunset strip to have fun.

Way too pricy for NATA!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Got a rate for $300 for a suite, and ended up checking out with a $800 bill without room services. They will charge you for everything and anything you do at 20 times the fees. Its a hip hotel but not worth the prices. The pool is a mess, way too crowded. You can look as cool as the scene itself for 1/3 of the price staying elswhere. Will never go back- I knew i should have stayed at the W!

simply not worth it!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Horrible service; just a bunch of "wannabe's" wanting to get discovered and having no intentions of providing you any service. Stayed for 3 nights and 1st night we were woken up all night long as we were above the service/delivery entrance. You would think they would be apologetic and perhaps offer us a better room especially after I told them we stay in L.A. a week out of every month and this was my fiance's 1st visit to the hotel. Our next room was not much better. The bed, sheets, furniture are uncomfortable and CHEAP. Everything in the mini-bar is outrageously expensive to the point of being offensive. The Skybar and Asia de Cuba are fantastic and the only reason to visit this hotel...but don't stay there.

A Birthday Expectation

from A TripAdvisor Member
Booked a night at this hotel expecting a hip/state of the art hotel. We were somewhat disappointed. Hotel was old and had shades of trying to be painted over. Old bathroom tubs, windows, elevators. Odd feel of new over old. Overpriced for what you got. If you provide a coffee maker in the room why not provide the coffee and not charge $ 3.75?? Asia De Cuba was worth everything it cost to eat there!

Top Local Tips for Hollywood

Many Bars Are Within Walking Distance There are many bars near the hotel, Saddle Ranch, the Standard, Trochadero, Miyagi's, House of Blues, etc. IF you are not feeling SkyBar head to one of these bars.

Skybar Admission for two + two guests (4) come with the room reservation. Even if you do not usually go to bars, the view from the Skybar looking out over Los Angeles is beautiful.

shopping Beverley Centre nearby also Beverley Hills not far for Barneys, Bloomingdale etc., Great exchange rate for UK travelers.
