We have stayed at the Banks Mansion a number of times over the last few years and I just realised I hadn't yet written a review. The most recent visit was in July 2010.
The location cannot be beaten in Amsterdam. Central to every sight and located on one of the most beautiful canals with wonderful architecture. It is also very close to some great restaurants (around the 9 streets precinct).
The Banks has a unique concept of all inclusive room rate, so all mini bar, downstairs bar and canapes, breakfasts etc are all inclusive. The rooms are very comfortable and have an art deco theme. The showers are terrific and some of the rooms have a huge deep bath for you to relax in. The lounge downstairs has a great fireplace which is a nice place to relax after a long day walking around.
The service level in the hotel is excellent. All staff are more than willing to help you with any concerns you have or provide restaurant or visitor recommendations.
What I like most about the Banks though is that it feels like a small boutique hotel and is not impersonal like a lot of the big chains can be, particularly in Europe.
I would recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Amsterdam. Particularly if you don't want to take trams or cabs everywhere as you can easily walk to Anne Frank House, the Dam, Central Station, Flowermarket, Heineken Museum, Rijkzmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and everything in between! Personally, I would never stay anywhere else in Amsterdam.
