The hotel is magnifique! It's a small all inclusive boutique hotel with 51 rooms. The location is perfect, within walking distance of restaurants, museums, and attractions. We had booked an executive canal view room, but when we checked in, we were upgraded to a suite! Sweet! We had a corner room (suite) with canal views, living room, bedroom, and gorgeous... More

The Banks Mansion really makes you feel at home. The complementary drinks and hors d'oeuvres make the perfect touch. Best hotel breakfast I've ever had. The rooms are a bit small, but It's centrally located, and you'll spend your trip in the city. I will return for sure.

The hotel was all that we had expected after reading other reviews. An additional bonus for us was the interior decor...reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright with a classic color scheme. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was all anyone could desire. Centrally located so walking to all the sites was easy.

Having stayed in a really great hotel in Milan last summer we did not think we would ever again be so rapturous over a European hotel. Banks Mansion was the equal. With a convenient location, wonderful staff, beautiful room, great breakfast and free happy hour it can't be beat. In addition to meeting all our needs with grace and charm... More

I really enjoyed the Art Deco décor and the warm hospitality of Banks Mansion. I was surprised and impressed by the crystal decanters of liquor for free in the room. I was also surprised to find that the lobby bar is serving drinks and snacks for free all day long. Overall, this is a great value for a quality hotel... More

Six of us needed a base to explore Amsterdam prior to a cruise. Banks Mansion was centrally located within walking distance or short cab rides to most attractions and night life. While the room was not large, it was well laid out and tastefully decorated. Most importantly the service was phenomenal. After check in, Bonne sat us down with a... More

We recently stayed at Banks Mansion for my husband's birthday on the recommendation of our daughter and her husband. The hotel exceeded our expectations. Staff were very pleasant and could not have been more helpful. Definitely service with a smile!!! The chocolates left in our room, as a birthday treat, from the "Banks Mansion team" was a lovely touch. Thank... More

Banks Mansion was absolutely wonderful. The staff was super welcoming and informative, and the concept is that the hotel provides everything you will need. This includes a free bar in the lobby, snacks, nightly cheese and wine, breakfast buffet, internet and bottled water whenever you ask - as well as directions and advice from any staff member. We felt welcomed... More

Good things first: Good location in centre city. Friendly service. But: very small rooms. And just too expensive considering room quality and service. The hotel claims on its homepage: "we want to celebrate city life with you through an abundance of food and drinks in a warm and authentic setting.“ Well, not really. Yes, the mini bar is free and...
