My husband and I spent 4 nights at Banks in May and we had a perfect stay. The hotel was recommended by our travel agent and even though the 329e was a bit high for us, it was worth every penny and more! We had a small but lovely appointed canal view room. The staff was especially helpful. We arrived... More

If you're looking for five-star experience in downtown Amsterdam and are willing to open up your wallet for it, look no further than the Banks Mansion. My girlfriend and I stayed here as a splurge/treat on our last night in Amsterdam, and everything was amazing, completely worth it. We checked in early and received a complimentary upgrade to the suite... More

Might look more expensive on paper than other hotels, but what you get for the money is well worth it, great location, very nice rooms, The Bar and very frendly and helpful staff. Overall I have recommended this hotel to pretty much everyone who is thinking about Amsterdam and will hopefully return

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. Staff is very professional and caring. Hotel well maintained. Rooms quite small about 130 sq ft but nice balcony over street and well laid out. They have a nice practice of open bar for soft drinks or coffee or beer/cocktails if you wish late afternoon, and small sweets throughout the day. Breakfast including custom... More
