These guys dont really need another 5 star review! Its all been said before - I would add that the location is suprisingly quiet considering how central it is, and the gym equipment left over from the black tulip always gives us a laugh. Breakfast is spot on in quality and quantity. Marcel and Berry cant do enough for you and wil always phone to get bookings/tickets etc. If you like beer, then brewery t'Ij up the road and the pearl just at the top of the red light district are both well worth a visit.

Room Tip: canal view rooms have the light and are still quiet

Mauro mansion is located just a few minutes walk from the central station in Amsterdam city centre yet quiet and peaceful. The front of the hotel overlooks one of the city's many canals whilst interior rooms overlook a small courtyard. We had a courtyard room - what it lacked in natural light it made up for big style in terms of space (huge!) and stylish decor. As well as two comfortable single beds with Memory foam mattresses there was a funky plastic rocking chair and a huge white leather sofa. Plentiful storage space came in the form of industrial looking lockable metal cabinets. The mini bar is pre filled with complimentary goodies - a couple of mini bottles of prosecco, beer, juice, Pepsi and nuts - a very nice touch, and should you fancy a refill there is a well stocked honesty bar downstairs including a range of beers and wines as well as sweet and savoury snacks.
Prior to its current incarnation as a boutique hotel the property was a hotel catering to a rather 'specialist' audience, some reminders of which can be seen throughout the building (dungeon bars anyone?) which all just add to the quirky style of the place.
The pillows in the room were huge memory foam affairs - as a fan of small pillows these wouldn't be the most conducive to a good night's sleep for me but the owners happily gave me a low feather filled which fit the bill perfectly. Overall the Mauro team occur an impeccable level of service; personal and attentive without being intrusive. They offered great tips on where to eat and drink of an evening upon request - always good to get insider tips....

Breakfast is included and featured a tasty buffet of warm freshly baked breads, cereals, meats and cheese, accompanied with fantastic teas and coffees and freshly squeezed juices. Each day there would also be a freshly made treat delivered to your table - we enjoyed fruit salad, scrambled eggs and pancakes during our stay, all expertly prepared and very tasty.

This isn't the cheapest of options but overall I felt that it was good value for money. Along with the excellent hospitality of the owners, little touches like the minibar and being able to make yourself fresh ground coffee at any time really make this place stand out as something a bit special. Combining these features with a first rate location makes Mauro Mansion an excellent choice for any Amsterdam stay.

My wife and I stayed here for a few days in January for our first holiday without the kids. The hotel has a very specific decor which throughout was nothing short of immaculate. The hosts were very friendly and extremely helpful. The location was ideal, really close to the red light district, but equally, a walking distance from anything you would want to see or do in Amsterdam. The breakfast was simple and inviting, but really fresh with a different 'surprise' brought to your table from the kitchen each morning. Our room was fab, complete with a large swing and evidence of the fetish scene this old building was used for centuries ago dotted around this excellently renovated hotel. Thanks to Marcel and friends for looking after us.

Room Tip: There are pictures of the rooms on the Internet, you could always email ahead of a booking to request a specific one.

We stayed at Mauro Mansion, in one of the canal facing rooms, for four nights to celebrate my wife's 50th Birthday. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the central station.
We arrived mid-morning, knowing that our room would not be ready until 2pm, but were very warmly welcomed by Marcel and Berry. We were able to leave our cases, and set off to explore the city. When we returned in the late afternoon our cases had been taken up the steep spiral stairs to our room – room 31, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean. We have stayed in many hotels, but what makes this hotel different is the attention to detail and perfect service. The bed was very comfortable, a different treat on the pillow every night (chocolates, waffles, etc), good quality toiletries (bath and shower gel, shampoo, separate hair conditioner, body lotion, hand soap), loads of towels, wardrobe, chairs, desk, a hammock chair, hair dryer, heated bathroom floor, huge flat screen TV, DVD player, iPod dock, free WiFi, tea and coffee and a fridge, stocked with a small selection of complementary drinks and snacks, and there was also a birthday card and a birthday gift from our hosts – a bottle of sparkling wine!
Breakfasts were excellent – a selection of cereals, yogurts, cheeses, breads, hams, fruit, juices, as well as a different small hot dish from the kitchen each day (e.g. pancakes). They also have a good selection of teas and a very fancy coffee maker (which you can use at any time). There is also a free DVD library and an honesty cupboard stocked with wines, beers, soft drinks, sweets, snacks, etc.
Marcel and Berry were very helpful in recommending places to visit and restaurants to eat in. Their hands-on, caring approach is superb – and we see that the hotel has just been awarded the “Trip Advisor Travellers' Choice® 2013 Winner - Best Service” – which is very much well deserved! Thank you for a great stay.
