Mauro Mansion is a fantastic place to stay in Amsterdam. The owners have taken every care to create a modern, unique yet very relaxing small hotel in one of the best locations in Amsterdam. The attention to detail is very apparent from the choice in decor and linens to the small details like flowers, chocolates, waffles ... left in the room. Everything is kept spotless by the owners themselves. Also, you are made to feel at home by having access to a in house movie library complete with snacks and a bar. A great way to relax in your room after a long day of sightseeing! And the great breakfast each morning comes with a daily surprise and endless coffee, espresso, cappuccino ...
The location is just perfect. A quiet canal only a 5 minute walk to the central train station and the main tourist information center. Getting to and from the airport is a 20 minute train ride. Plus, it is easy to take day trips out of the city cause the trains, buses, ferries are all right there. And across the canal from the hotel there is a bike rental store called "Orange Bikes". Great well maintained bikes and arguably the best way to see all of Amsterdam. Or even catch a free ferry and bike north to see some of the smaller fishing villages. Great restaurants are a plenty within a 5-10 min walk. We would highly recommend the Thai Bird restaurant for authentic Thai Cuisine, Skek for very tasty food at reasonable prices with some cool music, and cafe Van Beeren for the authentic dutch food.
My initial concern about booking this hotel was that it appears to be in the "Red Light District". Well it is not. The street out front is quiet and you can get to and from the hotel without entering the "Red Light District". But if you are interested in this area it is close by.
So all in all a great place to stay for a quiet, modern, clean, friendly ... stay in Amsterdam. The owners act more like hosts and give excellent information on things to do, places to eat ... and take interest in your stay. I highly recommend staying at the Mauro Mansion!!!!
