“Mauro deserves it's rating!”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

We stayed 4 nights at Mauro in late September. Other reviewers have done a great job describing the location, professionalism of the owners,the breakfasts and other details. We arrived just before 9 AM very tired after a transatlantic flight,and were told that our room would be ready 2 hours later. Welcome news! And it was. What I liked the best was the "honesty bar", the availability of great coffee all day in the common area,and the breakfast treats that Marcel prepared every day.

Thank you Berry and Marcel!

I agree with previous reviews as this was an ideal place to stay. Great location and very clean hotel. I would add that the area around Mauro Mansion has a lot of bars and restaurants, too. It is very close to the red light district, but I still felt very safe. My husband and I actually found lots of great little bars within the neighborhood and had a fun time.

We arrived at Schipol after a 1 hour flight, straight down into the tube station onto a train, into Amsterdam central, crossed the road, walked about 5 minutes to the hotel. it was that easy...Ok the hotel. Firstly the owners, I can only say that they were professional, honest, accommodating and have obviously been running a very tight ship for some time. Every base was covered..., to give specific examples, we were given recommendations on restaurants, of which Berry drew onto a map, told which trams to get for various museums, had wi-fi access, etc etc etc. The rooms were unique too, very well presented with a very comforatble bed. Adding to this free drinks in the mini bar, excellent breakfast with a speciality dish served to each person as an extra. It's an excellent indictnment when visiting a huge city like Amsterdam that the hotel was one of the highlights. We would recommend this hotel to others looking for an addition to their "Dam" experience.

My wife and I are just back having spent 3 nights at the Mauro Mansion in Amsterdam and can only echo what previous reviewers have said in justifying it's No 1 rating in the city.

In summary

Location - excellent in it is a 3-5 min walk to the Central Station. Its proximity to the Red Light district should not put anyone off

Accommodation - bedrooms are functional with an excellent bathroom. They are also spotlessly clean.. The complementary drinks in the mini-bar are a nice touch.

Breakfasts - really good. They have gone for quality not quantity although there was a range of items to choose from.

Hosts - helpful and friendly but not obtrusive in any way. They booked Museum tickets and made restaurant reservations for us.

The only potential minor problem is if you have a room on an upper floor the stairs are very steep. However you are staying in a canal house in Amsterdam and so in many ways this just adds to the charm.

All in all Mauro Mansion is an ideal place to stay if you are visiting Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor if you have mobility problems

I can only say that I agree with all of the positive reviews that have been written about Mauro Mansion. The weather turned wet and windy during our three day stay and made us really appreciate Mauro's proximity to the train station (about 2 blocks altogether) and to the many, many restaurants in the area. Our hosts were friendly and helpful with restaurant, sightseeing and travel suggestions. Our spacious room was canal side on the first (not ground) floor. There was an armoire for hanging clothing but no separate dresser, a safe, hairdryer, TV, extra pillows, extra shelf space in the bathroom for toiletries, and a mini fridge with complimentary beer, prosecco, and soft drinks. The buffet breakfast of cereals, fruit, yogurt, meats, cheeses, unique breads to toast and a small treat that differed daily (spice cake, strawberry parfait, etc.) was very satisfying.
Wifi and a computer for guests to use were on the ground floor. The eclectic decorating is pleasant and funky, "boho industrial" with some antique pieces mixed in.
Don't miss the masterpieces in the Rijkes and Van Gogh Museums. Take the #2 tram unless you want a long (but picturesque) walk.

Room Tip: Book early, 6 months or more in advance.

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!

Stayed 4 nights at the Mauro and was thoroughly satisfied with the choice. The hotel is a 2 min walk to the train station, yet is on a quiet street next to a canal. The staff was more than helpful because we arrived 2 hours past their 9pm check-in curfew time, due to a flight delay. This is a small intimate hotel in a 1600's era canal house. The Mauro serves up a beautiful breakfast spread (included) and can also print out your tickets for all of Amsterdam's museums while you finish your morning coffee, saving you the hassle of standing in line. You can easily take a scenic walk to all of the city's major sights from the Mauro. It is also right next to the Red Light district which was a concern of mine because I didn't want to be in a seedy part of town. It wasn't a problem at all. The neighborhood is quite upscale and felt very safe, though I wouldn't recommend staying in this area with kids. The Mauro doesn't accept kids anyway. A good policy in this particular situation. The hotel owners, who work there as well, recommended a great local Italian cafe called Oggi. It takes 5 min to walk there from the Mauro and was outstanding. The manager of Oggi is Mossimo. He was wonderful and very generous to my wife and I. We ate there 3 straight nights because of him The food is terrific!! A must do for dinner if you stay at the Mauro! Try his anti-pasta appetizer. Amazing!

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room, the first one on the left, which was a blessing because of our heavy lug...
