I was looking for a bed and breakfast in the Amsterdam area close to the train to get to Haarlem and found Mauro Mansion. The reviews were excellent and I loved that the place was recently renovated plus it helped their website has a very nice tongue in cheek sense of humor.
Everything they say is true, this place is very clean, safe and you're very well taken care of by Berry and Marcel. It's about a block away from the Red Light District so it's nice and quiet, but close enough for you to have a blast.
They also made excellent recommendations for dining and how to get around. I dined at Restaurant Lastage across the canal. Both Mauro and Lastage go together like Wine and Cheese, I recommend them both!
