We just spent 8 days touring Belgium and the Netherlands and returned yesterday. The last 4 days of this trip we spent in Amsterdam at the Mauro Mansion - this was absolutely the highlight. Marcel and Berry have made their place so comfortable, we felt at home. I was looking forward to getting to Amsterdam and staying at the Mauro Mansion based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and what I saw on Marcel and Berry's website. The decor is fabulous - its modern but comfortable. From the mix of textures - embossed wall paper, wood beams and furniture, industrial iron work, leather and rubber floors - to how clean and updated everything is. We stayed in room 34. I could live there full time! And the location is perfect! Its on quiet street but so close to the train and everything else.
And the honesty bar - was beyond what I imagined. They have a large selection of wine, beer, drinks, snacks to choose from. There was no need to go out and search for such items if you didn't want to - it was all right there. Breakfast was great - nice spread with the best, fresh baked bread and Marcel made something extra every day. Thanks for the mini pancakces with fresh strawberries - I am still thinking about them!
If you go make a point of taking the train to Haarlem and Zandvoort. Its an EASY day trip from Amserdam - Haarlem is 20 minutes by train and Zandvoort is about 10 minutes past Haarlem. On the last full day of our trip we took the train to Zandvoort and walked along the ocean. We then stopped at Haarlem on the way back to Amsterdam for a few hours. It was a nice way to end our vacation.
I will highly recommend the Mauro Mansion!
