From the moment you lay your eyes on the wooden bicycles at the entrance you are charmed by this warm and quaint boutique hotel. The staff is remarkable and truly interested in making your stay a delight. We stayed at the end of March and my 11 year old daughter pointed out to Jacqueline at the front desk how enamored she was by tulips. She was afraid she wouldn't see any as it was quite a frigid March. To our absolute delight when we returned to our room that evening we found a lovely bouquet with a note. Jacqueline had taken the time to make sure our daughter did see tulips during her stay in Amsterdam.
Rooms are clean and comfortable offering the nice surprise of a night cap as you have 3 decanters with liquor in your room as well as a full mini bar with treats for you to enjoy at no additional charge. What a nice touch. We had friends staying nearby and our hotel became the meeting point before dinner and a nice place to enjoy the fireplace in the lobby while sipping an after dinner drink. Yummy Amaretto for me.
Breakfast was also plentiful and fresh, served in a cozy downstairs dining hall with a lovely attendant who prepared eggs to your liking along with a variety of breads and baked goods.
As others have mentioned the hotel is also very centrally located- we walked everywhere. Around the corner is the charming floating market, a 10 minute walk away from Dam Square, 10 minutes in the opposite direction you will find the Hermitage which now temporarily houses the Van Gogh Museum. The hotel is also next to a canal which adds to its romantic feel.
Absolute bliss and respite- great place for travelers who appreciate quality and details. Also wonderfully family friendly. Well done Banks Mansion- hope we get to return soon- loved the Netherlands and our stay there.
