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

We picked this hotel based on TA reviews and could not have been more pleased. We read that the breakfasts were wonderful ( and so convenient to just pop downstairs), the location is superb, the staff is lovely, and the atmosphere welcoming. It's all true. Enjoy your trip!

This is such a lovely place to stay and the experience starts as soon as you book as we had a couple of queries before arrival which were dealt with efficiently. The location couldn't be better. The hotel itself is housed within a beautiful building and the rooms are lovely. We had a canal view which was amazing. The breakfast... More

Boutique hotel that includes breakfast. Located on Herengracht canal. Walking distance to many attractions. Friendly staff. Snacks and drinks in lobby. Ask for room above first floor or you will have to leave drapes closed as it is just above sidewalk level. Glad we chose this hotel to stay before our river cruise.

Excellent location (just 3 tram stations from Amsterdam Centraal + situated on Herrengracht - you will never get lost ;-) Helpful stuff speaking like native, comfortable room, wide offer of alco/nonalcoholic drinks, regular cheese break from 5pm till 7pm. If I have a chance, I will definitely come back.

Dear David G, Oh trust me….. We do have the best location of the whole city. But still during daydreaming in this beautiful area we get lost ourselves sometimes. Taking the tram is a smart option of you to make sure this will never happen. Thank you so much for you sweet and loving words about our helpful staff and... More
