“The best weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Enjoyed our long weekend stay which was greatly contributed to by the service we received from local staff. On checking in we were given a free upgrade courtesy of my Gold Membership and tickets for drinks at the bar. Reception, dining room and bar staff were friendly and willing to offer advice and I was particularly grateful to the young...

Excellent location, if you are looking for a nice atmosphere in a small boutique hotel over a beautiful canal this is it. Nice surprise the welcome drinks as well as the small surprise every morning at the breakfast. Each room has his own style. We stay in a very romantic red room with nice in canal.

Can't say anything bad. Close to the station so trains/trams/metro can get you anywhere in the city that you can't explore on foot. It's close to the hustle & bustle but on a quiet street overlooking a canal. Room was big by Amsterdam standards, lots of quirky stuff like a ladder & barber's chair. We were in town for the marathon so it was great to have a fridge (stocked with some complimentary beer, wine) to put our food & drinks. Breakfast area was nice and airy with freshly baked bread, the best cheese & cured meats. We had to leave early on race day but our hosts kindly left bread and other good stuff for us.
Excellent experience overall.

Room Tip: Canal view is nice

What can you say about a hotel that's been at the top of Amsterdam's hotels for three years running that hasn't been said already? Mauro Mansion is conveniently located perhaps five minutes from Central Station, on a canal, far enough away from the Red Light District that it's actually very quiet. Berry and Marcel who run the 9-room hotel are always around to help you plan your day, make reservations in advance of your arrival at restaurants they not only recommend but dine at. My room, on the main floor, facing the canal, was kicky -- bright red, with a hammock hanging from the ceiling. Okay, your favorite old aunt may not be happy here, but I met couples in their 50s, including a few from Canada. Your friend Kevin will like it, though. Everyone I talked with agreed it was a find. I found it right her on Tripadvisor and was pleased with the price and delighted to get in. I would recommend it to others and would absolutely return for another stay, if only for the warm bread at breakfast,

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the canal and by all means have the guys book a table for you across the canal...

The rooms are funky and fun but really comfortable and quiet. Ours overlooked the canal. This little boutique is a quick walk from the train station so you would never need a taxi, car or public transportation. It is a walk everywhere location. I loved the view

We and two other couples spent 3 nights in the MAURO MANSION before boarding a ship for a river cruise. The location is fantastic as are the owners/operators Berry & Marcel who were very friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was very good. The rooms were a bit quirky, but comfortable and clean. The hanging "closet", available chair and place to put our suitcases were adequate but could be improved. All in all a very good place to stay. Of course the upper floors require climbing some steep stairs, but that's very normal in Amsterdam. Our bags were carried up for us which we were thankful for. Definitely recommended!

Mauro Mansion is a central, quirky little hotel with lots of interesting features.Berry's directions to follow upon arrival at the nearby train station were specific and easy to follow . Berry and Marcel were very welcoming- they even carried our heavy suitcases up the 3 flights of narrow stairs! They were also helpful with advice on where to eat and what to do in Amsterdam. The free mini bar is a nice touch, as were the extra little surprises at breakfast!
