We spent 3 nights at Mauro Mansion and endorse all the comments made by other reviewers ... room was spacious, quirky, comfortable with a view of the canal. Complimentary drinks were great as were the breakfasts ... after 3 weeks of english breakfasts it was a welcome change, and the little surprises every morning, eg. the strawberries, were a nice touch. The night manager (forgive me for forgetting his name) was excellent with his welcoming attitude and helpful advice. Marcel and Berry were very professional and helpful without being intrusive.
Only downside was the noisy pedestrians staggering past the front at night, but this is the trade off I suppose for the great canal view. The 40 steps up the stairs was a bit of a challenge after walking all day but part of the holiday fitness regime and we had help if we needed it to carry our bags. Not the cheapest place in which we stayed but it presented good value for money and we had no regrets.
