The Banks Mansion hotel is fantastic, right in the centre within easy walking distance of all facilities. The hotel is modern and decorated in a boutique style. The lounge is very comfortable and has a well stocked free bar and coffee/tea facilities open 24 hours. The bedrooms whilst not large are very clean and comfortable, you can even order your own pillow preference from soft to firm and anti snore. Bathroom had a large shower with a built in steam function which was a great way to freshen up and relax. The bedroom also has a free mini bar (gin,whiskey and brandy) fridge and tea/ coffee machine (senso make) television and DVD player. Wifi is free in the room.
The hotel only serves breakfast but this is really enjoyable with freshly made to order omelettes, fried or scrambled eggs. There is a full continental fayre to choose from as well as cereal and breads plus the traditional English style breakfast available. At 4:00pm the free wine bar is served in the lounge with nice red, white wines and pro secco available. The rest of the bar is always available. At 6:00pm a large free cheese and meat platter is available for guests which provides a great pre dinner appetiser.
The hotel also offers free wifi and iPads in the lounge area to plan your trips and evening meals. The staff are really helpful and will recommend good Dutch and other restaurants to suit your taste. I rang the hotel from England to be greeted in Dutch but they quickly spoke fluent English once they realised where I was from. They booked the local 2* Michelin restaurant Bord'Eau for our visit. This is a real experience for a special occasion, not cheap min £100 per head but fantastic. Amsterdam is a great short stay city made all the more enjoyable by the Banks Mansion hotel and staff.
