Perfect location to discover Amsterdam and easy access to metro. The early evening snacks were welcome reprieve from our long sightseeing days.

Banks Mansion was the perfect hotel choice for our retirement trip to Amsterdam! The location was incredible as it made for easy walking either in to the center of town (Dam Plaza) or to the museum district. There were numerous restaurants in the area, which was also convenient. The all inclusive full breakfast (cooked upon order) was a great way...

Places to eat and drink less than 5 minutes walk, 10 minutes from Dam square. We booked a double room which was great, no problem sleeping you can...
