The location cannot be beat, right on the Herengracht canal, on the trolley line and walking distance to many things. The staff is extremely solicitous and helpful and, as promised, everything is included: snacks and beverages from the room mini-bar, full breakfast and the bar in the lobby including the fruit, sausage and cheese tray in the evening. Plus there is free wi-fi and you can use the computers or the iPads in the lobby if you have not brought your own. It clearly caters to English and American guests (everyone we met was) and the food and beverage choices reflect that. They even have ice machines on every floor which I have never seen in a non-chain European hotel. But like many "all inclusive" things it is very expensive. It was easily the most expensive place we stayed during our two weeks in Germany. the Netherlands and France, and the rooms were the smallest and most cramped. They stuff a lot of furniture in them and it makes it very hard to move around, find space for luggage etc. I tripped over an ottoman in the dark and fell into the table on which they had set up a full bar. We were on the fourth floor and the rooms there may be smaller. The bed was very comfortable and they have a very innovative service that allows you to select your pillow. It was a crazy weekend because (unknown to us when we booked) it was Queens Day that Monday so there were huge crowds of people everywhere, but the staff at the Banks Mansion seemed to keep up with everyone's needs in spite of the chaos.
