First off, we found the hotel staff were extremely helpful. Eager to engage in small talk as well as address our needs. Second the location is within easy walking distance of what we wanted. Restaurants museum and shopping. Third the rooms are comfortably appointed. Not elaborate or larger- just right. Slight negative was traffic noise from the street. Lastly both... More

From the moment I walked in I felt like I was home. The reception staff could not have been more accommodating. In addition to the perfectly clean and nicely sized rooms, the all-inclusive style of this hotel, including breakfast, drinks, mini bar and afternoon snacks, has made this my only hotel choice when I stay in Amsterdam.

The Banks Mansion situated in a convenient area of Amsterdam is a very comfortable hotel with a very comfortable ambience. The lobby offers a living room area with snacks and drinks inclusive in the room cost. The breakfast is excellent and the room offered a great nights sleep. The staff was very helpful and professional. We had a fabulous stay.

This hotel was brilliant from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. All the staff were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay in Amsterdam. It is 50 yards from the tram which runs every five minutes. Unlimited drinks and snacks.
