We had the most wonderful time at Banks Mansion! It was my husband's 60th birthday and I had booked a trip to Amsterdam as a surprise treat. As it was a special occasion, I emailed the hotel ahead to arrange a few things and to our delight we were upgraded free of charge to a beautiful 4th floor suite with amazing views overlooking the canal! The room was modern, spacious and spotless. The bathroom was luxurious and had a generous sized walk in shower which doubled up as a sauna! The bed was huge and very comfy with lovely crisp linen sheets. Room service attended daily with fresh linens/towels/toiletries etc. Rooms also include a free mini bar, which was replenished when running low as well as three crystal decanters containing gin, whiskey and cognac.... a lovely added luxury! Breakfast was included in the price and you had your choice of continental (fruit, cereal, breads etc) or eggs cooked to your liking along with bacon and sausages. The hotel is in a lovely affluent area but just 15-20 minutes walk from Dam Square and other attractions. The daily flower market is less than 10 minutes walk away and the Red Light District (which you have to see, even just once!) is about 20 minutes walk away. In the hotel lobby there is a coffee machine, a fridge containing soft drinks/beer/water and a range of alcoholic drinks which are all complimentary for guests so after a day of sightseeing you can come back, relax in one of the big comfy chairs, chat to other guests or browse the internet and help yourself to a drink of your choice. Every evening a selection of chilled wines and snacks are provided for guests, again all complimentary! The staff go out of their way to ensure guests are happy and well provided for - nothing is too much trouble for them. We would highly recommend Banks Mansion and look forward to returning again - we wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else! Thank you Banks Mansion for a wonderful, memorable stay.
