Great hotel

We stayed for 2 nights for my wife's birthday. It is a fantastic hotel in a great central position. Go for a canal view room. The feel of the hotel is a lovely home from home sort of thing. All the staff were absolutely fantastic, incredibly helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great too, the omelettes to order were excellent. Will definitely be back next time we're in Amsterdam. Stayed December 2014, travelled as a couple

Great location with friendly staff

We were able to walk everywhere from the hotel. Canal hop on hop off stop just outside. Willem who greeted us when we arrived was fantastic, friendly and very helpful. As were all the staff. The living room area, with snacks, nibbles, drinks was great. The cheese and wine late afternoon was a great way to relax after a day sightseeing. Will definitely go back.

Perfect Location, Service, Hotel

Snacks and drinks at the lobby are really good. Room amenities are rich and meets the needs. Breakfast was okay, someone cooks the eggs a la minute according to your desire. Reception staff was very helpful for giving advice and making reservations to nearby restaurants.

A brilliant concept

We have stayed at the Banks Mansion three times, and would not consider staying anywhere else on a visit to beautiful Amsterdam. The 'full service concept' is inspired - everything there is yours to help yourself to. The bar is well stocked with every conceivable alcohol, there's snacks on tap and a delicious cheese board every afternoon. The location is so central, it's easy to pop back for a rest stop after a morning of afternoon sightseeing. The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly and breakfast is amazing. We will definitely be visiting again.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

We downloaded an app called 'Amsterdam - The Map' which was a lifesaver. It's available offline and shows your position on a detailed map (and lets you add your hotel as a marker point) so you can find your way about easily. We didn't get lost once!

Fantastic hotel

This is an excellent hotel in a great location and offers very good value for money - what more could you ask for. The rooms are clean and the canal views are worth paying extra for. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The lobby has a free bar (spirits, beer & soft drinks with wine & prosecco in the evenings) open 24 hours, with snacks in the evening (soup, bread & cheese), a lovely feature that makes you feel at home. You won't regret booking this hotel.

Ask for canal side rooms on a higher floor. Also take a taxi from the station to hotel, only a 20min walk but feels longer with luggage.

Friendly home

When we arrived we were told the hotel aimed to feel like a home and given that it's in the centre of a city and full of tourists, it does that well. Staff were very friend,y and helpful, the 5 o'clock free cheese is a nice homely touch. And there really is unlimited free drink, although fortunately no one seemed to take too much advantage of that. Rooms a tad small, but then there is the genuine,y nice lounge where you can spread out.

Location, Hospitality and Comfort

The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating! We arrived early morning after an overnight flight and because there was a room available, we were allowed to check in rather than simply to drop off our bags. The manager provided excellent directions and dinnertime restaurant recommendations. We were within an easy walking distance to the major museums, Old Town and red light district, other significant attractions, and the hop-on/off canal cab. At the end of the day, we enjoyed complimentary wine and cheese in the "living room" before preparing for dinner

An Enjoyable Stay!

The hotel is centrally located to walk all the historic and museum sites. The staff is very nice. Breakfast was included and it was very good. Complimentary wine and cheese every night in the lobby is a nice way to end the day.
