The Banks Mansion hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Amsterdam. I recently stayed there while vacationing in Amsterdam and found the hotel within 15 -20 minutes or less walking distance to: 1) Museums, 2) Restaurants, 3) Pub/Bars, 4) Amsterdam Centraal (Train Station) and 5) Shopping. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in arranging museum tickets, transportation and... More

Just returned from a very enjoyable weekend at the Banks Mansion, despite the weather ! Staff are excellent, very welcoming and always happy to help. The all inclusive concept was unique for this area and we enjoyed the opportunity to have a glass of wine in the afternoon together with a selection of local cheeses. Breakfast was also very good...

After reading the reviews, I expected something a bit better than what we experienced at the Banks Mansion. Much was great: the breakfast is delicious, the nespresso machine in the room was welcome, and the sound proofing of the windows was good. The room and the bed (especially the bed) were small, even for European hotels, and we've stayed in... More

The staff was professional and friendly, English speaking, and helpful with restaurant recommendations. Breakfast is included and deliciously cooked to order. Centrally and conveniently located. A beautiful boutique hotel. The complementary in room cocktail service was important to us!

Our canal view room was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Paris and Amsterdam. Having the balcony doors open to a view of the canal and street was a real treat and the room was modern and fresh. I also like the concept of having the Wi-Fi, minibar and drinks included in the room rate. On top... More

We stayed in Banks Mansion this weekend, we booked a room at 309€ per night, so we had our expectations. When we entered the lobby we were already disappointed, lobby looks very old and has no style. Then we went to our room, it was a really tiny room, we had to move a sofa to reach the bed. When... More

This place was recommended to us by a work friend and TripAdvisor liked it as well, so we booked out two nights in Amsterdam here. It's not the cheapest place, and there may very well be better values depending on how you do it. The concept is a nice change from regular hotels, as other reviewers have noted. We mainly... More

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
