If you are looking for a cosy feeling, then this is your hotel. All of the staff are nice, helpful and courteous. You really feel like you’re being taking care of. We had a standard deluxe room with canal-view. A decent size and even though it was on the first floor, it wasn’t too noisy from outside. The all-inclusive bar...

The staff was excellent, especially Robert who helped in so many ways during the course of the week. A block away from two tram stops made it easy to get anywhere in the city if you had bad weather. If the weather was good, it was walking distance to anywhere in the city. Amenities were great - open bar, daily...

Excellent location, excellent staff, wonderful amenities and roomy rooms with comfy beds. My 12 year old granddaughter and I stayed for 3 nights at Banks Mansion.

Hotel is well located within the city centre and within easy walking distance to many of the things my wife and I were interested in seeing. The staff were very helpful with information and made us feel right at home. Room was large by comparison and well stocked with refreshments. Hotel was quiet and charming.

This is the first time Trip Advisor really let me down. The reviews for this hotel had been so strong I was unprepared and disappointed by the drab, small rooms and small, crowded lobby.

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular.

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.

We didn't have AC in our room but did have a free minibar with snacks. The lobby has a complimentary bar and the chef conjurs up some lovely snacks. This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at and the staff just can't do enough for you.

Dear Hutchplace,

Thanks for you message.

The walking distance to the Anne Frank Huis (house) is 20 minutes, by public transportation it will take you approx. 12-15 minutes. By taxi 10 minutes, but this really depends on the traffic along the canals.

Regarding the tickets, please have a look in advance at the Anne Frank Website because between 9am and 3.30pm you can ONLY go in when you have a pre-bought ticket, after that you can by a ticket at the door, but lines can be apparent.

Please let us know if you need any further information or mail us.

Have a great day and we look forward to you visit,

Warmest regards,

Paul Buyser
