Upon the rocco of this web site, my husband and I stayed at the Banks Mansion in June (booking a standard room). When we arrived at 11:00 am we were told that our room was ready and we were upgraded to the suite which had a large living room, bedroom and great bathroom. The Banks Mansion also has an open...

This was an awesome place to stay for our getaway in Amsterdam! The hotel is near a tram stop, the flower market (city market) and along a canal. Across the canal is the Mayor's home! It is about a 5-10 minute walk to Rembrandt square, with many restaurants to choose form. There are coffee shops there, but it is not... More

My wife and I stayed there for several nights and the service, location, and facilities were excellent. We would absolutely stay there again on our next visit. It was our first visit to Amsterdam and they were so helpful in arranging for tickets for museums and recommending great places to have dinner. I can't say enough about the quality of... More

Stayed at the Banks at the start of a European vacation. Everything exceeded our expectations! Yes it is a bit pricy, but so is everything in Amsterdam. As good as the hotel itself is, the staff is even better. Really unbelievable concern for each and every guest. Location is central and an easy walk to just about anywhere in Amsterdam.... More

Just stayed 7 nights at the Banks Mansion -- two on my own and then 5 with my husband. It's a fabulous location -- walking distance to everything and on a lovely canal street.

Hotel has a number of things going for it like the location and free stuff as others have said. Staff could not have been better like helping with a room request or with restaurant suggestions. I just expected a little nicer looking place for $340 a night. It was a bit worn and needed a face lift. As I have... More

After travelling in to Amsterdam by train from the airport we decided to walk to the hotel as it was a beautiful afternoon.

Good location. Various worthy restaurants within short walking distance. Wide assortment continental breakfast. Most comfortable beds we've encountered. Friendly desk and room services provided rapidly. Lounge area with coffee, juices, beir, alcohols, and cheese spread (various times of day) was an excellent benefit. We will return here to be certain.
