We stayed at Banks hotel to kick off a two-week jaunt around Western Europe and were very happy with this as our start.
While difficult to find when driving (perhaps a larger sign would be helpful) the location is excellent, and within walking distance to many points of interest. There is a parking garage and bike rental up the street which was convenient.
Our room was on the smaller side but there was a place for everything and everything had its place. I did find it odd that the toilet and shower were connected in the glass enclosure, but other than that the room was tidy and functional. When accommodations could be made they were done so with haste - An iron was furnished upon request, as was a fan. There could have been a few more coat hangers in the closet, but satisfactory for sleeping (and catching some World Cup highlights before bed)
Staff were helpful and courteous. The reception/concierge was a delightful young girl who had excellent recommendations and personal favorites on where to bike/visit.
Complimentary happy hour snacks and cocktails were a nice touch that we enjoyed. The breakfast however was not worth the price - food was decent, but not worth 17euro/pp.
Overall I would recommend banks hotel.
