I stayed in a Deluxe Room at Banks Mansion for four nights in March 2011. My room was immaculate on arrival and was kept to a high standard of cleanliness by the housekeepers throughout my stay. It was very cosy and had plenty of storage areas for my belongings. When I booked my accommodation, I noticed that it had a shower instead of a bath. I prefer a bath to a shower so I was a bit unsure of my choice, but the shower turned out to be luxurious with plenty of space and a drench option which was perfect for relaxing under after a busy day of sightseeing. The furnishings in both my room and the communal areas were elegant with a stylish, rich colour scheme. My room was ideal for a peaceful night’s sleep – the bed was extremely comfortable and there was virtually no noise from the other guests or the busy street outside. There was a well-stocked complimentary mini-bar and the refrigerator came in handy to keep my own snacks fresh. In addition, there was a complimentary self-service bar in the lounge with a wide range of alcoholic and soft drinks.
The hotel is located in the picturesque Canal Loop and, as the city centre is so easy to get around on foot, it is ideally situated with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.
Because I was sightseeing for most of the time, I only ate three times in the hotel. My first meal was a delicious breakfast of cheese, cold meat, crusty bread, pain au chocolat, a croissant, Rice Krispies and orange juice delivered to my room on my first morning which set me up for the day! I also enjoyed two evening meals of tomato soup and vegetable lasagne via room service – both were very tasty!
I found all members of staff who I dealt with to be extremely friendly, polite and helpful, especially one of the receptionists who gave me travel advice on how to get to and from Amsterdam ArenA.
The best things about the hotel were its charm, class and hospitality, and the worst thing? Leaving it behind, of course!
