We stayed at Banks Mansion for three nights mid-week and would thoroughly recommend it.
The hotel is in an excellent location, right at the junction of the Herengracht and Vijzelstraat, just a few minutes’ walk from the very heart of Amsterdam. There is a tram stop right outside the hotel, which can be reached in just five minutes on a direct line from the main railway station (Amsterdam Centraal).
Getting to attractions further out of the city centre couldn’t be easier. The Vondelpark, Rijksmuseum, Heineken Experience and Artis zoo (to name but a few) are minutes away by tram.
The hotel staff were welcoming, friendly and professional and the standard of the accommodation was very good. The hotel operates a ‘full service’ concept, which means that the minibar, lounge drinks, snacks and breakfast are all included in the nightly rate. This gives it a real home-from-home feel: sitting in front of the roaring fire enjoying drinks and local cheese from the mini buffet is the perfect way to unwind after a day of sightseeing or meetings.
The rooms are a good size, comfortable and well equipped. We stayed in a canal-view room and the large French doors opened wide to reveal a lovely view of the Herengracht and the mayor’s official residence. Our room was peaceful and relaxing.
The hotel staff were very friendly and professional and always happy to help. Beyond their efficiency with the usual administrative duties of check-in and so forth, they were happy to offer advice on restaurants, tickets for attractions and the local area.
We will most likely stay at this hotel when we next visit Amsterdam and would recommend it to anyone, no matter how long or short your stay.
