Had a wonderful 2 night stay at this centrally located hotel. All the staff were extremely helpful. The location was great for us as it was within walking distance of many of the city sites that we wanted to take in (canal trip, museum tours). We did not have a canal side view we were on the main floor (room... More

Pleasant stay. Slept well even with room on the busy canal bank side. Nice view. Seems they figured out how to insulate the room windows with double doors. Not luxurious room but very comfortable. Nice touches included complimentary drinks and snacks on arrival, breakfast cooked to order, singing duo at breakfast and crystal decanters in the room with choices of... More

We took the chance by not booking a hotel before we travelled. After walking the steets of Amsterdam for hours we finally found the Banks Mansion (the only hotel that we could find that was not fully booked!) & I am so glad we stumbled upon this place!
