“Quirky, centrally located, relaxing, easy going stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Booked the Mauro Mansion based on reviews and value for money and I wasn't disappointed!

It is very easy to find, 5 mins from station. Yes, it's next door to the Red Light District but you don't really notice and you can easily walk round it.

Was made to feel welcome from the moment I booked, friendly emails and when my preferred room became available I was notified and moved - fabulous!

Our room was courtyard and directly above the breakfast room. It was very clean (& I'm very funny about the cleanliness of hotel rooms!) We enjoyed the quirky decorating. Two slight gripes - the lockers were short so my husband's clothes were squashed and as it was above the breakfast room we could often hear music, not really an issue but slightly annoying.

Breakfast was fabulous, fresh food, loved the pate and the extra dishes (pancakes, strawberries, sweet breads) were a lovely touch. Was great to be able to borrow DVDs after a days walking.

If I was to return to Amsterdam I would stay here again. If you want a chain hotel then stay at one, if you want quirky and Amsterdam stay here!

But confused as to why this is number one. Maybe I expected too much after reading all the glowing reviews but I was severely disappointed. Stayed in a canal room which became very noisy at night. As for the area, my partner and I very nearly got mugged on the street outside the hotel. The room itself was ok, awful smell obviously coming from the toilet which was nauseating! One tiny wardrobe as well to store your stuff. I appreciated the free mini bar but would have to say we had little/no communication with the owners, we decided against asking them for anything after we kept getting strange looks from them when we tried to. Also as a couple travelling was disappointed to have two twin beds pushed together? Will definitely not be back and as mentioned am disappointed as I was so looking forward to the experience. Maybe I was just unlucky though as there are so many other positive reviews.

Very good hotel, romantic and convenient, we stayed there last week and enjoyed a lot from the room, breakfasts and hospitality of the owners. The view from the canal room just fantastic and free minibar in the room is a nice surprise. I would recommend it to any couple that have a romantic holiday in Amsterdam.

The hotel is easily found and only a few minutes from the central station.

Downstairs they have breakfast and an honesty bar with food and drink if you get peckish in the night.

Our room was canal side, a little bit noisy when people walked past but the hotel has earplugs if you need them.

Room was good sized and the drinks/shower gel, etc. were of a higher quality than you would usually expect.

The staff were very friendly and we got some strawberries and cream for breakfast.

All in all a good hotel to pick

Mauro Mansion was a great place to stay - Berry and Marcel were lovely and very helpful. They were happy to book us into restaurants for dinner and gave us a great dinner recommendation. Breakfast was very healthy and fresh, the room was extremely clean and the location great.

We stayed in a canal room which had a great view, the night-time noise didn't bother us at all and the welcome drinks in the mini-bar were a great touch. On our return trip to Europe later this year we will definitely be staying at Mauro Mansion again.

Room Tip: The canal rooms have a great view

Thank you Berry & Marcel for a wonderful stay. Couldn't have asked for a nicer, more stylish accommodation. The breakfasts were superb. We really appreciated your warm hospitality and all the great recommendations for visiting Amsterdam. Hope we can return in the future.

Room Tip: We had a canal view and LOVED it!

Stayed at the hotel last weekend of Feb & it was great! Berry & Marcel were really nice, the place is very clean & just gorgeous!
Breakfast is really nice quality.
It's got such a great thing about it, that it attracts really sound people.

Deffo recommend it mainly for couples, or people travelling with 1 person or a close friend.
