Returned here for a second stay - and absolutely love this place. I come to Amsterdam often. This is the best hotel I've stayed in. Open bar concept is wonderful. Breakfast is delicious and plentiful. Rooms are large and so incredibly comfortable (a pillow menu!!). The staff is over the top helpful. The flat rate airport transfer is helpful. If... More

Our group stayed here prior to going on our cruise. It turned out to be an excellent choice . It was a warm day on our arrival and we were greeted with iced lemon water. They can provide you with GVB tickets as well as museum tickets for most places. The lobby has ipads for guest use and a nice... More

Stayed in Hotel for two nights (Thurs/Fri) with a number of friends for a social visit. Arrived early and staff stored luggage until we could check in later. Reception staff were both friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them during our stay. Rooms are well appointed, clean with comfortable beds and well insulated from street noise.... More

One of the higher end hotels without ridiculous over charges. Wifi and room fridge bar items were complementary. No cocktail bar but free wine, snacks and such available to guests in the lobby. Rooms were comfy and quiet and well kept. Plus quite clean. We had a nice view of the canal and it was close enough to shopping, restaurants... More

We stayed at Banks Mansion for two nights pre-cruise and what a great way to get settled into Amsterdam. Of course, we arrived before usual check-in, but the front staff was so polite and helpful by storing our bags and directing us to some possible lunch places. Ended up with pizza nearby and by the time we were done our... More

We were very much looking forward to our stay at Banks Mansion, however, upon arrival there were many small items (and a few larger ones) that caused us to cancel our last two nights. Upon arrival we were greeted with an offer of a welcoming drink. When my wife asked for a vodka drink she was told only beer, wine... More

This is a small boutique hotel in a building that formerly was a bank (thus the name) It has a living room in the lobby that contains a "do it yourself" open bar.

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
