Very comfortable

This is a perfect hotel for a first trip to Amsterdam. Its location is in a quiet area but close enough to everything if you like to walk or tram stop just outside front door.The staff are very friendly and helpful tickets for attractions or trams con be bought at reception.The living room in hotel is very comfortable and whats not to like about free drinks and snacks.Rooms are comfortable with nice large bathrooms and all amenities you require.I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this city and look forward to returning sometime.

Great Hotel in Amsterdam

The location of the Banks Mansion is ideal, as it walking distance to all of the major attractions: Anne Frank House, Van Gogh and Richts Museums, the Red Light District, Dam Square, the Jordan area and the Nine Little Streets. The breakfast and evening cocktails were a nice treat and the staff was very helpful with dinner reservations and plans. Would highly recommend this hotel.

A great weekend in Amsterdam!

My husband and I selected this hotel as we wanted somewhere a bit special to stay for our weekend in Amsterdam. We were not disappointed! From the moment we stepped in the door the friendly staff made us really welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Whilst we know we probably paid a bit more to stay here than at another hotel, the fact that everything was included (mini bar, hotel bar, cheese board in the afternoon etc) was great. There are even iPad2s that you can use in the lounge area. The inclusive breakfast was wonderful - a wide range of lovely things to start the day with. Our room was not particularly spacious and we did not have a view but this didn't really matter. The bed was huge and so comfortable. The bathroom was wonderful too! The location of the hotel was excellent - overlooking a canal in a relatively quiet but central part of the city, meaning we could walk everywhere. There was no shortage of great restaurants within easy walking distance. Overall the hotel is highly recommended. Well worth paying a bit more!

Rent one of the hotel's wooden bikes. They are much better for getting around town than car.

AMAZING HOTEL!!!

From the moment I arrived I was impressed! My flight had arrived early and I was exhausted. The staff quickly made sure i got a room and was able to rest. The bed was so comfortable. Down blankets and pillows. The bathroom was beautiful. Complimentary liquor in the room free of charge. Unlimited access to food and drink. Wi-fi internet was free. Within walking distance to all nightlife and clubs. Great shopping in the daytime and wonderful places to eat. Fantastic breakfast in the morning if your able to get up early enough. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Gave great directions and suggestions on places to visit and eat. Beautiful sitting area with scenic view of canals. I cant wait to come back here again. It was FANTASTIC!!!

Loved this hotel!

Can't think of anything negative to say about this hotel. Great location, good service, comfortable clean room, breakfast included along with appetizers, all drinks (wine!) and mini bar is included as well. Great to relax in the lobby with snacks (cheese, sausage, pate) and nice wine. I was looking to stay somewhere more authentic like a canal house, but this hotel offered so much and was so nice to come home to ....... and the bed was so comfy.....very very nice.

Perfect hotel!

All other hotels should take not of how to run a hotel from the Banks Mansion: 24/7 access to food and internet included in the room, helpful and friendly staff, and an amazing location within walking distance to everything! Would stay here again in a heart beat.

ideal city hotel

Hotel staff were very helpful right from our arrival. We checked in early and they got our room ready as soon as possible. The bedding and pillows were all duck down, which I am alergic to and they came and changed them immediately. The all inclusive policy is a lovely touch they will even lend you an i pad2 to use during your stay!

Dissapointing

Put lipskick on a pig and it's still a pig! Nice older redone property. Upon arrival found bathroom sink clogged and would not flow. For 3 days staff made excuses that they could not find maintenance man (but would get on from another property if necessary) and sent a sucession of dest clerks to verify it was still clogged. Manager never returned message left for him. Not a pleasant stay!
