We had a wonderful stay at the Banks Mansion for two nights on our way to a Tanzania safari. I can't say enough good things about the staff and the accommodations! The price may seem a bit more at first, but it is well worth it in the end. Every question was answered with a smile, the snacks and beverages... More

We had a last minute change in plans and needed a place to stay in Amsterdam. Based on Trip Advisor Review we selected the Banks Mansion. The first floor room was clean and quiet. The Front Desk staff helped us plan our days at Museums and a bike tour. Their advice for dinning locations was excellent. The included wine and... More

At the time I booked the trip for late July, early August, I could tell the Banks Masion Hotel was one of the better places to stay. What I did not know was the hotel had free soft drinks, beer, wine and water and was so accommodating. it is located in the Canal Ring. My only problem was I arrived... More

I booked this as a special weekend trip for myself and my 2 teenage (16 & 17) nieces, I was visiting them in England from Australia, so this was bit of an adventure as well as luxury for us! Service couldn't have been better from the reception on arrival to the lovely staff that cooked great omelettes and everything else... More

The room was roomy by Europe's standards. The Bathroom was very nice with a large shower. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The amenities were great, we had a fridge in our room with beer, soda, water, snacks etc. They also had spirits in the room, downstairs a full bar anything and everything one could want. They had...

My parents and siblings and their spouses booked a river cruise which ended in Amsterdam. We booked the Banks Mansion for a few days at the end of the cruise. It was a very nice hotel located right in the Canal District within a few blocks of the RijksMuseum, the Red Light District, and Rembrandtsplein--a square surrounded by restaurants, bars,... More

We stayed at Banks Mansion for three nights and then an additional night at the end of our holiday. It is in an excellent location, but more than that the staff are superb. They treat you as family. Breakfast is delicious with made-to-order omelets and a very ample buffet. At 5:00 p.m there is a wine and cheese reception each... More

Nice hotel with ideal location and an interesting concept. Classy lobby with well chosen Art Deco style furniture and a warming chimney, but I would recommend to remove the disturbing wooden bicycles. Rooms are (too) small, but this is due to the old building structure. 4 points for the sympathy factor.

We spent 2 nights at Banks Mansion with our college aged kids. The location is perfect, right around the corner from Rembrandt Square and within walking distance to all the major attractions. They serve an excellent breakfast with made-to-order omelets, French toast and pancakes. Also included in the room rate is cocktail hour from 4-10pm. They had a decent selection... More

Stayed for two nights at the conclusion of a Viking River cruise-felt like a continuation of the cruise. We were greeted at the front desk with a smile and a thoughtful souvenir gift (because we booked directly with the hotel). This was unexpected and an omen of our experience with Banks Mansion-everything exceeded our expectations! Large room, very comfortable bed... More
