On the pictures, the Gustav Mahler's hotel seems a superb monument. The disappointment begins when one discovers the room: mine was tiny, with little beds seized only for children but unfortunately I'm no more a child. Many of the rooms are situated on the road with beautiful cobblestones but that make a lot of noise when a bus or truck passes by. So, when after an awful sleepless night at last it's 6:30 am and you think you can go and have a coffee, suddenly you discover the breakfast room, despite all the official informations on the flyers and on the door itself, opens only at 7am...
Some other bad points: sometimes there is no hot water; on TV, only Czech and German channels; a friend was blocked on the elevator just before leaving for the airport...
Some positive points: central situation; good coffee.
Maybe there are better rooms on the other side of the hotel, let's hope so. Anyway, I would recommend to avoid the rooms on the street.

Because my husband and I were undertaking the "Search for Gustav Mahler," there was no option in where we had to stay - Hotel Gustav Mahler in Jihlava, Mahler's boyhood home. It was just perfect. Housed in a former Dominican Convent, the hotel reeked charm. We loved the echoing sounds down the long, Gothic-domed corridors and view into the lovely Cloister. The hotel, just off the main square, is easy to find, and free parking is right on the premises.

Our room (#112) was large enough to accommodate two comfortable chairs and a table, along with most appreciated two bedside tables with out queen sized bed. The newly furnished bathroom was enormous, and the hot, powerful shower worth lingering in. The staff was uniformly gracious and helpful in pointing us to various locations in the region.

The real surprise was the kitchen. We rarely eat in hotel restaurants and virtually never more than once in the same place when we travel. The food was so good (and extremely reasonable) that we ate there twice. A third night, wanting to try some place different, the receptionist recommended Tri Knizata on the main square. It was an attractive place, and the food was good, but it could not compare to Gustav Mahler's food at half the price. Breakfasts were substantial buffets that included some local dishes as well as the usual fare.

The receptionist also recommended a woman who gave me a very relaxing massage at standard Central European prices. Amazing! It was an added bonus that the Mahler Festival had begun and we could attend at concert at the church attached to the hotel - Mahler Symphony #1.

Jihlava makes an attractive base from which to explore the Czech Republic's Northern Highlands (Vysočina). The city is large enough to be interesting in itself, and the road connections are excellent - creating a spoke and wheel configuration for the region. The drive in from Prague is very easy, and we stopped at Kaliste (Mahler's birthplace) on the way. Other excursions included Lipnice and Havličkův Brod for some Jaroslav Hašek and Josef Lada connections (The Good Soldier Svejk), and the charming Renaissance/Baroque Telč. Had we had more time, we could easily have based in Jihlava for longer and visited the many other sites in the region.

But, there is really only one place to stay and eat (whether tracking Mahler or not) - the Gustav Mahler Hotel.

Room Tip: We liked room 112 which overlooked the cloister
