We just got back from staying at the Banks. FIrst off, the hotel was very nice. The included breakfast was WAY above average.. both hot and cold. The living room concept where they have a full bar open all day (included in the price), sizable cheese tray in the early evening, IPADS and comfortable places to sit is really a good deal. We had wondered if we might use it as we would rarely sit in a hotel lobby and hang out. But it was big fun and it was nice to have some wine, cheese, some cocktails after walking around in the cold. Nice touch.
The location is prime. Right on the nicest residential canal but still very close to many town squares, shops, cafes, sights, boat tours, biking.. We walked ALL OVER Amsterdam and don't think we saw anywhere in terms of location we'd have rather been located. 5-10 minute walk to everything in a town where you walk.
All in all, we loved this place. We were a family and got two rooms but I wouldn't hesitate to just go as a couple. It worked out exceptionally well. Got a little loud from the street on a couple nights with some drinkers out having fun during vacation but nothing terrible. We were treated well. The staff was exceptionally helpful and gave great recommendations.
We would stay here again in a minute. Value for money was very high..
