Just got back from a wonderful vacation in Amsterdam, due in large part to the fine accommodations and location of the Banks Mansion Hotel. Starting with the warm reception from those behind the front desk, to the fine breakfast, comfortable lodging and enjoyable wine and cheese in the afternoon, my stay at the Banks Mansion was 5 star.

This review is very late in coming but we stayed here over the Kings Day weekend. What an amazing event to witness. It's like St Patricks Day on steroids! Anyway the staff were brilliant and contended well with a few complainers who didn't like the music and partying going on. The location is right on the canal and very central... More

Dear guest, Thank you very much for this superb and wonderful review! It was truly a pleasure to read. Kingsday is always a special day in Amsterdam and next to being great fun it is also always a challenge for a hotel with such a great location as us. Thank you for complimenting our staff.

This hotel is already a favourite of Tripadvisor reporters - and deservedly so. It is well situated, well appointed and well run. The staff are exceptionally good, not just on arrival but throughout the stay - and of course we take it for granted that they all speak impeccable english. The only criticisms in various reviews seem to be (a)... More

I recently returned from a family vacation in Amsterdam. The five of us stayed in two adjacent rooms at the Banks Mansion. Our experience was uniformly positive and I doubt I will even look at another hotel when planning my next trip to Amsterdam. Location: Very central on Herengracht at Vijzelgracht. 10 minutes walk to major museums, Jewish quarter, Nautical... More

I had a lovely stay at Banks Mansion in August 2014.

We had seen great reviews and the hotel was recommended by our travel agent. Welcoming staff were great as expected. We were too early for check in and a welcome coffee/tea was available and advice about where to go while they stored our luggage. On check in we discovered the room was set up for one person only, ie one... More

Ditto all past reviews. We stayed at the Andaz, the first 3 nights and while it was lovely, The Banks beats it in every important detail to us. The room cost substantially less at The Banks and the "all inclusive" treats previously mentioned make it a bargain for those of us that are too mature for budget rooms. We will... More

Had a wonderful few days in this lovely hotel. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Very good breakfast and lovely extras like the cheese and wine provided in the evening. Location is ideally located -- flower market and lots of eating places just round the corner and shopping and Dam square only 20 mins walk away

I stayed in Banks Mansion for two nights. This hotel is in a great location, so close to the famous Flower Market and Rembrandt square. It's set nicely in between the shopping areas and the museum district. I'd really recommend this hotel. It's nicely decorated in an art-deco style... my room wasn't huge (the rooms are different sizes as it's... More
