Hotel is a 2-5 minute walk from the train station. I can't see someone taking more than 5 min to get to the Mauro Mansion. Although it is in the center of all the attractions, it is on the outer block facing away from the streets filled with party animals so we had no problem with noisy crowds. Hotel was...

My wife and I just spent a few nights in Amsterdam. Loved the city and felt Mauro fitted the unique nature of Amsterdam perfectly. There is a few stairs to climb to your room but Marcel was more than obliging with the luggage, and we don't travel light. Breakfast room was great. Berry, the manager, I think, was very helpful...

Mauro absolutely deserves number one place on a Trip Advisor. Located just 10 minutes walk from Central Station and about 5 minutes away from hustle n bustle of Amsterdam's main attractions. That's just the right distance for walking, yet provides a quieter space away from the loud bars and busier areas. Perfect location. You do hear a little street noise...

I'm writing this review as I relax in my hotel room at Mauro Mansion feeling a little sad at the prospect of going home tomorrow morning. Both myself and my partner wish we could stay a little longer! Hotel is in a great location! We checked in yesterday a little before 11am and our room was ready Marcel greeted us,...

Location: 5 minutes walk from central station. 10 minutes walk to the dam area . Small hotel with home atmosphere . Big and clean room. Big bath . Free welcome mini bar. Breakfast cost 5 euros..really worth it. I suggest to take the canal room . Definitely will come back

The hotel is in a great location, especially if travelling by train as it is just a few minutes walk from the station. Just make sure when leaving the station, go left as you come out of the main entrance on Stationsplein, walk to the end of the station and cross the road directly opposite Geldersekade so you don't get...

We have just returned for a long weekend in Amsterdam and once again TA isn't wrong when it comes to Mauro Mansion. We were impressed from our initial email questions to the hotel as the responses came back very quickly, to the instruction on how to find the hotel on arrival. As others have said the location is ideal, 5...

We were here for transit and arrived late after 11pm+, but the owner was so helpful and gave clear instruction for checking in without any hassle. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk from the Central Station. Our room on the 1st floor overviewing the canal with good view. A very charming stylish comfy hotel with character, nice...

Very clean & excellent location if travelling by train. Room 34, a little claustrophobic ( only skylight window) & dim. Killer stairs- no assistance when checking out. Ordinary breakfast & indifferent owners. A well located & appointed small hotel but not special.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
