“The only place to stay in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2010

I can only agree with all the previous comments about this small boutique hotel. In an excellent location, close to Centraal Station, Dam Square etc. with comfortable quirky rooms, some of which overlook the canal, this place is a real home from home. Breakfasts were great, the coffee was fantastic and the daily surprise was a bonus. A complimentary mini bar in the room with coke, beer and juice and an honesty bar on the ground floor with very reasonably priced wine and snacks, as well as coffee to go. But what makes this place so special are the people who own and run it; Berry and Marcel are wonderful hosts who are happy to provide recommendations about restaurants, places to visit etc. but without being at all intrusive. I would definitely stay here on my next visit to Amsterdam and would recommend it to anyone.

Great stay at Mauro Mansion. Rooms, service, breakfast are all superb and the location is perfect. Great recommendations from Berry for nearby restaurants including Eat Me which was excellent for dinner. Won't stay anywhere else from now on when back in Amsterdam.

Friendly arrival after easy booking online. I had messed up my booking but Berry ( co owner) sorted it out. A lovely, individual hotel not far from Central station. Beautifully decorated , felt like being home from home, very helpful- kept the room next whole day time for a business meeting. Will definitely stay there if and when I return to Amsterdam.

Breakfast available, not other meals but 100s of restaurants nearby.

They also have travel and tourist cards for sale in the hotel.

Berry and Marcel were wonderful. My wife and I spent the first two days of our Honeymoon in Amsterdam. Berry and Marcel had a canal view room ready as we had reserved. The service was impeccable, breakfast delicious and ambiance was the best I have ever had.

The location to the train station is great. Getting around the city from this location was no issue at all.

I will be staying here again.

We arrived at 1 in the afternoon berry & marcel were really welcoming & helped us with finding our way around Amsterdam. Our room was really clean and no noises from the city, we had the jacuzzi bath which was amazing but pretty loud so i was a little worried about disturbing the other guests. The breakfast is really nice & lots of choice. The location is perfect, 5 min walk from dam square and central station and 2 min to the red light district. Only thing i would say, it looks like a house so we walked straight past it but just look at the street numbers! We would like to thank you Berry and Marcel for a lovely stay.

I took my boyfriend to amsterdam for his birthday and struggled initially to find a hotel that ticked all the boxes. After reading such great reviews on tripadvisor i decided to book at mauro mansion for 2 nights. All i can say is that the recommendations were not wrong!! The hotel itself is right next to central station and dam square. We arrived early and they took our bags, offered us coffee and use of the restroom and gave us a map to get our bearings. The room was great with nice little quirky features and a complimentary mini bar! The fridge in the room was a great size so we went to the supermarket and bought cheese and wine.The bed was very comfortable and a had two seperate duvets which is a dream come true for me as my partner hogs it all usually!! The bathroom was very clean and i fell in love with the bath tub, in a two night stay i had 3 baths! The breakfast was great and the couple who run the hotel were so attentive bringing a different treat to your table each morning (fruit salad and small dutch pancakes).

I must say though the best part about this hotel is the service! Marcel & Berry clearly love their hotel and have built it up from nothing. The little things really made our stay ie. 50% off vouchers for the museum we were visiting that day or the amazing coffee to go. On our last day we had a late flight so we were able to have a later check out and use the living area in the hotel throughout the day. Handy as it was rather cold outside.

All i can say is that i highly reccomend this hotel and i will most certainly stay again. I too work in a boutique hotel in Edinburgh so i know that these little things are not a standard for most hotels and was impressed with how attentive and hard working the owners are.
