Adding to all the other fabulous reviews, we stayed for our 20th wedding anniversary and were provided with a free room upgrade, a bottle of champagne, strawberries and a card wishing us a happy anniversary from Marcel and Berry. Touches like this make all the difference. Mauro Mansion is in a league of it's own, from the very professional way it is run by Marcel and Berry, the beautiful decor, the exceptional cleanliness, and it's prime location. On top of that there is the tasty breakfasts of cereal, juice, meat, cheese and little extras such as pancakes with strawberries and pineapple bowls. The very thoughtful honesty bar is brilliant for water, alcohol and snacks, take what you need and pay at the end of your stay. Plenty of DVDs, CDs and books to borrow if needed too. The location is perfect, 5 minutes walk from Centraal Station, metro and tram stops. The train from Shiphol took about 20 minutes and cost less than €9. Places to visit - The Red Light District, less than 5 minutes away was very busy with lots of bars (amongst other things!), Dam Square was very touristy and expensive but nice to see. We found Nieuwmarkt which was more or less at the bottom of the street much nicer, plenty of bars, restaurants and coffee shops which were reasonably priced. Good place to watch the world go by. Rembrantpark was also another favourite. The canal cruise is a lovely way to see the city and the Heneken Experience was enjoyable and interesting. All in all we will definitely be returning to Amsterdam and in particular to Mauro Mansion.
