We just returned from our first visit to Amsterdam where we stayed at the Banks Mansion for four nights. (I found and decided on the hotel through Trip Advisor so felt compelled to write a review to help others in the future.) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everyone at the front desk was pleasant, welcoming and knowledgeable. The lobby lounge... More

I could fill this review about this fantastic hotel and the superb staff, free bar, wonderfully scrumptious breakfast and nibbles passed out at varying times of the day but really wanted to approach from a different angle. The hotel took second place to the fantastic time spent with some wonderful friends but I feel the weekend would not have been... More

It's hard not to like this hotel. It's in an ideal location, easy walking distance to most things worth visiting but not in the midst of the maddening and noisy center. Free breakfast prepared to order, free drinks all day, afternoon wine and beer social and free minibar. The staff is courteous and helpful and were knowledgable about local restaurants... More

Stayed here for a long weekend break. In the city centre this is in an excellent location near to the sights and restaurants. It operates on a full service basis.

When we checked in we were greated by William. He sat us down in the living room. Brought us drinks and a smile. Helped us with tours and food info. Recommended Cade Winkel for Appel tart. Americans would call this a cobbler. Absoulutel YUMMY. You must go there and sit with a Cappuchino. You are right on the canal and... More
