We booked this hotel based purely on TripAdvisor reviews and we were definitely not disappointed. Berry, Marcel & Abbey went out of their way to ensure that our stay at Mauro Mansion was a memorable one. We stayed in room 23, it had the most comfortable bed that we have ever slept in. It was on the first floor up... More

I took my wife here for a surprise for her 40th birthday. We don't get to go away at all so I needed to take her somewhere so special and Mauro Mansion blew us both away. If you are looking for a place to stay that offers acute attention to detail, friendliness that is totally sincere and a very chilled... More

A really great hotel with interesting history. We stayed in a room with a ladder that led up to a cage from the building's S&M days... honestly I thought it might have served as a place where farmers kept hay for their horses! This hotel is small and is located very close to the train station, so super-convenient for guests... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in mid August 2015. Mauro is a beautifully maintained warm yet quirky hotel. The decor in the room was stylish and the presence of an antique dentist chair was a amusingly surreal touch. Our room was spotlessly clean and we received a edible gift on our pillow every morning and a complimentary bottle of... More

Mauro is perfectly located just a short walk from Central Station in a quiet street on the edge of the red light district. From the Amazing water pressure in our walk in shower, unique room decor, very comfortable bed and complimentary food/drinks in mini fridge on arrival this hotel was a fabulous find for our first trip to Amsterdam!

We booked room 31 for three nights at the end of July but were delayed en route so sadly we only got to enjoy 2 of them. Mauro is in an idea location if arriving at the Central train station, and in fact ideal for walking anywhere. The room was lovely, with a canal view, an amazing shower and a... More

Stayed in Room 34 on the top floor. Stairs very steep (typical of Amsterdam) but this is clearly stated on the website. In Summary: 1. Room Rate - incredible value 2. Central location (walking distance from Centraal) but not loud 3. Welcome drinks in room - lovely touch 4. Honesty Bar - well stocked (at Supermarket prices!) 5. Breakfast -... More

The owners got it spot on. Beautiful light room with great view, felt like I lived in Amsterdam for a couple of days. Loved the Hammock Chair (Room 31). Complimentary Prosecco and beer was greatly appreciated. They say on their website the breakfast is quality over quantity. Not sure what that means as the quality is there but so is... More

We loved our stay at Mauro Mansion. It is beautifully restored original house situated right on a canal and a very short walk from attractions, restaurants and the train station. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and looked after our every need. Little touches like our welcome Prosecco and nibbles added to the experience. We were concerned about carrying... More

This hotel is really a cross between a hotel and a B&B, which I loved. We stayed in room 32 with a view of the canal and on the second floor. There is no lift, so you have to negotiate the steep narrow stairwell. Its about 40 stairs up to the second floor, which wasn’t a real concern for me,... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
