We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights with our two teenage children in 2 rooms. As many have noted, the 24/7 mini bar is fantastic for weary travelers and after walking many miles throughout the day. The daily wine happy hour is a relaxing way to end the day of site seeing before heading out to dinner. The breakfasts... More

Excellent location close to most major attractions including floating flower market. Staff exceptionally helpful and friendly, helped with dinner reservations. Great atmosphere in lounge area, with cheese and drinks in the evenings. Rooms are very well appointed and clean.

We recently stayed four nights here, and couldn't have selected a better hotel. Location is central to many parks, museums, and fine restaurants. Our room, as well as the public areas, were both well appointed and clean. In addition to the "open bar" offered at this hotel, they also have a wine and cheese party every afternoon in the guest...

Banks Mansion was absolutely wonderful! The room was clean and comfortable. The service was excellent. The breakfast room was charming and felt like home! The cooked-to-order breakfast was delicious. Everything about the service and amenities made our vacation more special! The downstairs "living room" was cozy and relaxing. The afternoon wine and cheese was an added plus. The staff was... More

Fantastic hotel located in the center of Amsterdam. The location is simply perfect if you want to visit the city. The rooms are nicely decorated and modern, and the breakfast way above average, absolutely excellent. A couple of perks are the fact that in the room you have free hard liquor (whisky and gin, if memory serves) and free snacks... More

This was our second visit to the Banks Mansion, we were so impressed the first time we stayed. We arrived early in the afternoon and were found a room while we relaxed with a drink in the " living" area. This room was on the opposite side of the building from the canal so it had no view, only the... More

The first room we were put into was by the elevator and we were kept up all night with the noise. We then asked to be moved and were rudely told no and after finally arguing were moved to a room that was more noisy. We didn't even want to complain because the staff was so difficult to deal with,... More

Certainly one of the friendliest hotels we have ever stayed in. Staff are welcoming and helpful and actually appear to enjoy providing good service. Room overlooking canal was fair size and very comfortable. Hotel is in a central location with easy walking to museums and other tourist attractions and with plenty of restaurants locally. The refreshments freely available in the... More
