Reviewed December 27, 2013

After searching TA for a place to stay for a short break in Amsterdam, there was really no question of where to stay. After walking the short distance form Centraal Station we were greeted by Abbey who swiftly checked us in and carried our bag to the second floor up the steep and winding staircase. Once in the room we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room and its decor. The minibar was stocked and we were instructed to help ourselves. After a look at the map that Abbey had given us we headed out.

After an excellent nights sleep we went down for breakfast and we were shown around the buffet breakfast and invited to help ourselves. This consisted of fresh warm bread, a selection of meats and cheeses, juice and fresh ground coffee, yogurt and fresh fruit.

The location of this hotel couldn't be better, there is a supermarket within easy reach and the main tram lines all converge at the station. If your into it, there are numerous "coffee shops" and the red light district, although close, doesn't detract from this hotels position.

There is a reason this hotel is number one!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper I would recommend a room towards the back as street noise can be intrusiv...

Stayed 2 nts @ Mauro Mansion. Easy walk from Central station. Greeted with warmth and even had
Our (large) bags carried up the narrow staircase to our room. No elevator but a true old world Amsterdam experience. The Free welcome mini bar was more than enough and a great surprise. Everything you want of Amsterdam is outside their doors. The canal room was well appointed and as promised still retained touches of the hotels shady past. (Which was a great laugh) the boys couldn't have done more. Including doing a free load of washing for us. We offered to pay. They just smiled. 2 perfect nights...one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in. Definetly recommend for a short stay in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Choose a canal room.it's what Amsterdam is all about.

I stayed here for two nights and found it to be a fantastic little hotel. What a find! I had one of the ground-floor rooms (which was ideal as I was traveling with a huge amount of luggage on my way back to Africa). I didn't notice any extra noise at all. The room was beautifully done--slightly quirky, and the complete opposite of the impersonal corporate style hotels I usually end up in for work trips. Berry and Marcel were very helpful, even arranging a special large taxi to handle my oversized luggage when I went to the airport. Breakfast was excellent and the welcome minibar is a generous touch. The location is great--just a few minutes walk from Central Station.

Wonderful boutique hotel within very easy walking distance of Central Station. Each room individual and special (and ours had excellent reading lights, unlike a report listed earlier) - with great bathroom, free minibar and comfortable furnishings. Berry and Marcel were super-helpful and really made our stay special. The breakfasts were lovely, with a new and special thing each day. Excellent value wines and snacks available 24 h/day, and DVD and CDs to choose for free from the library in the dining room.

This hotel is advertised perfectly, but still exceeded our expectations. Our room was quirky, comfortable and quiet. We appreciated the alarm provided to listen to our iPod. The breakfast was great, I have food allergies and was able to find enough to eat (which isn't always possible). The fresh juices are delicious, a fine assortment of whole fruits and the eggs were fluffy. The location was perfect for our arrival and for exploring Amsterdam.

This was our first time in Amsterdam and the instructions and directions for arrival were clear and concise, thank you!

Just as their website says...do you want a quirky but comfortable room OR do you want an elevator, turn-down service, etc.? Mauro Mansion doesn't advertise that they are more than they are, and travelers shouldn't expect more, even with the #1 rating.

That said, we loved our stay at Mauro Mansion, and thank the Tripadvisor community for raising this place up to the #1 hotel in Amsterdam, or I'm sure we wouldn't have found this little gem. All the previous reviews describe the charms, amenities and convenient location - which we also loved. Barry and Marcel were perfect, if reserved, hosts (and gosh, thanks for running those darn suitcases up and down the 3 floors for us!).

Mauro Mansion is not luxurious, but to me, seemed the perfect reflection of Amsterdam; easy, comfortable. Beauty mixed with edginess.
