“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This unique full service hotel did not cease to amaze. From it's location on the Herengracht we walked everywhere easily. The Rijks, the shopping districts, dam square etc all were within an easy walk. Then we would pop back into the hotel for a free cocktail and cheese tray. Free minibar. An excellent breakfast buffet . The staff were all top notch and very knowledgable with a sense of humour. Probably one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms were on the back of the hotel but the view is not as pretty

Dear Namellor,

Thank you for this wonderful review.

The fact that you say your stay at Banks Mansion is probably one of your best hotel experiences ever fills me with joy. I am one proud General Manager.

Of course we would love to welcome all our guests back for another great stay. Amsterdam is worth a second visit and so is Banks Mansion (if i may say so myself).
We believe that the experience starts at home and during the booking process. To make sure nobody pays to much we always offer the best available rate on our own hotel website.

We hope to welcome you again in the near future.

With warm regards,

Esther Boers
General Manager

Banks Mansion was a unique experience. The hotel itself is lovely and has quite a luxurious feel to it, but it's the concept of the hotel which makes it special. With Its all inclusive approach to drinks enhanced by the 4.00pm wine buffet and cheese board, we were made to feel we were part of something special. Can not recommend this hotel enough. Prefect for a romantic break in a really nice and central part of Amsterdam.

Easy to get to from central station by tram, which stops nearly outside.

Helpful staff with good ideas of where to go, day and night.

We had a fantastic stay in the centre of Amsterdam! The price included breakfast, wifi and a bar that you could help yourself to. The bedroom and bathrooms were very good. The staff were lovely and go out of their way to help you.

Stayed again in December last year for a long weekend, we love to stay around Sinta Klaus. Our 4th stay and as good as ever. It has some of the most friendly, yet professional, staff in any hotel I've stayed.
Sitting in the lounge is pure relaxation no matter what time of the day. Whether you want to enjoy a cheeky port before your shopping trip or a glass or two of prosecco before dinner you feel so comfortable.
We booked directly with the hotel as it was the best rate available for our stay - and I always shop around to get the best deal.
A big thank to all the staff and particularly to the kitchen who bought me soya yoghurt specially for breakfast, very kind. See you later this year.

Room Tip: Not had a bad room, the rooms are really quiet. Canal rooms are great. Suite very comfortable.

The Hotel is well-located, only 20 minutes walk from the central station, on a tram line if you have luggage. The rooms are plushly equipped, beds firm and comfortable, and the large lounge offers guests free access to drinks, cocktails, and snacks all day. The breakfast offerings were also excellent. A great place to stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a viiew of the canal.

We chose this hotel based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The location is great with restaurants, shopping, sites and the museum area all within walking distance. You are right on the canal and the tram stops feet from the front of hotel door. The breakfast was great with fresh cooked omelets, french toast, pancakes and then an expanded european buffet. There was meat, cheese, fish, granola, yogurt, breads and fresh fruit. Every evening they serve wine and cheese selections in the main lobby. In addition there is a bar selection in the hotel lobby and mini bar in your room, that is free of charge. There is beer, water, soft drinks, coffee machine, liquors and snacks all included! This was great as we weren't searching for somewhere for a bottle of water to take with every day, we just grabbed it from our in room mini bar fridge. The front desk staff was great. They had great suggestions for local restaurants with all types of food, traditional Dutch, seafood and even Indian. You can buy tickets to the main attractions at the front desk which makes it easy so you don't have to que in long lines. There is an airport shuttle that will stop directly at this hotel.
