“Well located Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Well located near the center of the city and the museums are within walking distance and a tram stop was nearby. Service was excellent, as was also the breakfast. Room was quiet, comfortable, and had all of the features one could want, including a bathtub. Only 4 rating because carpet in the room was starting to wear, and the room could use an update / refresh.

Thank you very much for this lovely review. How nice to hear that you have enjoyed the proximity to all hotspots in Amsterdam, the breakfast, service of the staff and facilities in the room. Thank you for mentioning the status of the carpet in the room; we have already planned to do some works during the lower season. Thank you!

We stayed here at the beginning of June and can honestly say all of the reviews were 100% right. The staff were incredibly welcoming, our rooms lovely and breakfast was fantastic. The omelettes were particularly good. The drinks in the lounge are very welcome on hot days and we especially enjoyed the cheese and wine at 5 every evening. Plenty of restaurants around and very well placed for the museums.

Recently was in Amsterdam again and stayed for the third time at the Banks Mansion. The staff was friendly and helpful as usual. The daily breakfast, included in the room rate, is a made to order delight. Additionally, the rooms are excellent and the location on the canal is a bonus. Free drinks are included at a full bar in the lobby and additional complementary bottles are in each room. I look forward to my next stay at this amazing hotel.

My husband and I stayed at Banks Mansions for 3 nights and we enjoyed every moment. The many positive reviews are totally true and well written. This is an outstanding, luxury, boutique hotel in great location by the canal. The staff was all warm and helpful. The full breakfast was excellent. The common areas offer tea, coffee and alcohol which allowed us to watch the World Cup games with other guests and talk and share experiences with them. The location could not be any better. The room and bathroom were perfect size and very clean. The complementary bar in our room which included Gene, Whiskey, & Cognac in addition to all the goodies and soft drinks & juices in the mini fridge were exceptional. The only suggestion I have is to replace the carpet in rooms, hallways, and elevator with a more up-to-date plain color. The current carpet looks a bit out-dated and worn-out which downgrades the luxuriousness of the hotel.
All together we will definitely return to this hotel and totally recommend this hotel to everyone.

The many enthusiastic reviews are entirely justified. The hotel is outstanding in all respects. The staff was especially warm and helpful and deserves the highest praise. The breakfast was excellent; the location could not be better.

It hard to find a hotel that is as perfect as Amsterdam in the spring but Banks Mansion comes close. Perfectly positioned next to a picture perfect canal in the heart of the Centrum old town, this hotel mixes old school charm and modern convenience. First my most important list: great beds and bedding; great air conditioning; great shower; towels....not so good,surprisingly tiny and only two per room (they really should upgrade this to match the rest of their experience) Also they didn't replenish the shampoo etc. every day which I thought was odd. Room size was small. I actually asked to see larger rooms at reception and was told that we already had the large room. I can only imagine the small ones.

The design of the hotel is excellent, sort of mid century wood, modern fixtures, flat screens etc. Free drinks (including a full bar) in the lobby and in the rooms was a very nice touch. Great appetizers too around happy hours. Staff were lovely and wonderfully helpful.

Will stay there again.

Room Tip: For reference rooms ending in a 9 are larger, 11 smaller. If you want a good size get the executive...

You want a hotel within a spit of the madding crowd that's an oasis of tranquility and quality, look no further. We arrived too early to take our room, but the reception staff took our bags and gave us complimentary drinks while we booked in. Bag free, we then went about our business in Amsterdam. Returning to the hotel, we grabbed our bags and took our room. What a fantastic room it was too. All the usual refinements were there as you'd imagine and done to a very high quality. The ensuite had possibly one of the best showers I've ever used in a hotel and as for the tv, well there was possibly the best selection of channels I've seen in a continental hotel. Oo, there was a DVD player too. No excuse not to find something to chill out too while resting those weary legs. On the way out we had a few hours to kill before our bus turned up and was allowed to leave our bags again till we returned. All in all a superb hotel that ticks every box. One other thing, the room was stocked with complimentary drinks with gin, brandy and whiskey on a side table in decanters. I must get out more!!!
