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

Fantastic service & location, topped off by absolutely splendid room and amenities. From first to last, we were looked after marvellously by the helpful staff - the free drinks and cheese and snacks were the icing on the cake.

On my first trip to Amsterdam I was overwhelmed with the variety of hotel options/neighborhoods, etc. Traveling for light business/pleasure with 3 friends (early 40s males) and didn't want the frat house/20 something crazy of Dam/red light district, but didn't want to be far from night life. Hospitality: Top notch staff & great breakfast is to be expected. What makes... More

Stayed here over Valentines weekend, February 2014. A really nice hotel, ideally located on the Herengracht Canal which is very central and great for getting to everything. Good suggestion of dinner from the concierge whose name escapes me. Rooms and service were very satisfactory. Would stay here again, no doubt.
