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

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend with friends. Fabulous hotel. Great that all the alcohol and snacks are free. Fantastic concept. This hotel is in a great location and within walking distance of most sights. The staff in this hotel were very friendly and so helpful. We had rooms overlooking the canal. They are a bit small but... More

My husband & I were headed for a river cruise & decided to begin our trip with 3 nights in Amsterdam. We really lucked in to a wonderful hotel when we booked our room here at the "mansion" It was like staying in a private home. Our room was lovely with an extraordinary view of the canal & a roomy...

Hotelis in a great location, overlooking a canal, close to the flower market, Dam Square and they hotels. Front desk staff was lovely and having breakfast and cocktails included was nice, but was surprised that housekeeping didn't bother coming each day and, when they did, the clean up seemed "light." So you can imagine my surprise when I asked for... More

My wife and I stayed at the Banks Mansion from Apr.19-24. The staff were friendly. The location was central. The room was very nice. The complimentary breakfast was one of the best we've encountered in our travels. The complimentary wine and cheese happy hour was something we looked forward to after a busy day of sightseeing. The living room in... More

This hotel come with all you can drink free booze and it attracts a very different clientele that likes to just free load on booze. This is only worth that extra premium if you just going to stay in the hotel and drink!!! i rather explore Amsterdam instead... The room very small and not that nice. I stayed in better... More

We stayed at this fabulous hotel with our friends for 4 nights in early May. The overall ambience of the hotel is fabulous, the staff cannot be more helpful, the fully serviced hospitality is second to none, SAMs breakfast omelettes and the range of goodies were superb and set us up for each day as we explored the sights.

The first stay (Apr 23-25) was for 3 nights prior to departing Amsterdam on a river cruise and traveling through Europe after the cruise. The second was for one night (May 11) prior to flying home to the US the following day.Both stays... More

My husband and I stayed for one night at the Banks Mansion, but we wish we had been able to stay much longer. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The room had a beautiful view and was very clean. It could have been considered on the smaller side but was perfect for our visit. The free drinks and snacks... More

A hotel that prides itself on very good service. Very central can walk or get a tram from nearby to anywhere. Modern with strange art deco-ish furnishings. Free drinks: wine, all spirits, soft drinks, beverages all day in the lobby and in your room. Beautiful free chocolates with mid morning coffee. Between 5pm and 7pm there is a free cheese... More
