Just had a wonderful stay here. I had a great room with a canal view. My niece, her husband and toddler son also had a great room with view. This hotel is all inclusive: breakfast, minibar treats, bar items and daily snacks from the "bar/living room" area and wifi are all included at no extra charge. This was the final... More

Everything superb! Friendly helpful staff. The inclusive bar was so good after a busy day sightseeing. Bed comfortable and room not too hot. I can't find the words really to describe how good the hotel is. Expensive but worth every penny.

Banks Mansion is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are lovely, the staff are so friendly and helpful, and couldn't do enough for you. The lounge area is nice and comfortable, and the all inclusive bar is great. There's a good choice of spirits, beers and soft drinks. Every room has decanters of spirits and a mini bar with soft drinks.... More

This place was just as good as all the reviews we read claimed and SO MUCH better. The hotel is in a great location, near the flower market. You can walk to any of the main attractions from here within 15 minutes. We also loved the breakfast buffet every morning, and they leave out amazing snacks throughout the day. They... More

I stayed at Banks Mansion very recently and all I can say is that it is an exceptional hotel. Why? Because I have been fortunate enough to stay at some of the very best five-star/luxury hotels all over Europe and the USA, but the service at this hotel outdid all of them! Every member of staff, without exception, was charming,... More

We stayed for 4 nights and booked a room overlooking the canal. The room was lovely with a comfortable bed and had a spacious bathroom. Our room was on the fourth floor and it had a lovely view of the canal, it was quite and we did not hear any noise from outside or in. The staff were very friendly... More

The all-inclusive concept for this boutique hotel is a great idea. No queuing at a bar, just help yourself! Most guests, like us I would imagine would say "really? help ourselves?" but yes it is help yourself to a well stocked bar in the reception/lounge area - beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks and coffee. The nice thing about it is,... More

Stayed at Banks Mansion in May. It is centrally located in Amsterdam. It has a very scenic view of canals. The neighborhood of the hotel in great. The room was comfortable but small in size. It came with a free mini-bar. The included breakfast was satisfactory though not too many vegetarian options. The room included free WiFi. All in all... More
