My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Banks Mansion in April 2014. We found the position of the hotel to be excellent - we were in easy walking distance to the Rijksmuseum and Museum Plein as well as to Dam square. A tram stop a very short distance away gave us full access to the whole city too.
The staff, without exception, gave excellent service and at all times made us feel as if meeting our needs was the only important thing that they had to do at the time. My husband was ill for a short period and nothing was too much trouble for them. Whatever we asked for was provided to us. Their restaurant recommendations were also spot on to our requirements.
The service is all inclusive. This means that we were able to help ourselves to tea, coffee, soft drinks, spirits, biscuits, etc in the lounge at any time of the day or night. At 4pm they serve a selection of wines and champagne and at 5pm they bring a selection of meats, cheeses, olives, etc to accompany the wine tasting. This made us really feel as though we were in a private home rather than a hotel trying to extract as much money from its patrons as possible. All drinks, both soft and spirits in our room were included too.
The free wi-if all through the hotel was also most appreciated and breakfasts had a full range of options including omelettes, etc cooked to order.
Whilst the rates may appear on the higher side, once you factor in the extras, we found Banks Mansion to be excellent value and would stay there again without hesitation.
