The Bank Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff were really accommodating and friendly, location was good and also meant we explored nearby joordan which we might have missed out on otherwise. Did however suffer with huge bites (most likely bedbugs) which really detracted from the comfort of our stay and meant we wouldn’t stay again. Issue needs to be looked at in 1412.

Easy to find and only 10-15 minutes walk from the train station (with cases). Thought the hotel was somewhat ‘style over substance’. The bed was very comfortable but there was little storage both in the bedroom and bathroom and not spacious enough when travelling with 2 suitcases.

Great location on a very pedestrian-friendly street close to shops, groceries, central station & many major tourist spots (canal belt, Dam square, etc.). Room was small, but that is the norm in Europe. They did have some sort of "universal" plug adapter built into the wall that made that outlet completely unusable (EU plug fit was too loose, North American plug also). We appreciated the included coffee & tea. Disappointing that soap is not one of the toiletries included (what are you supposed to wash your hands with after using the toilet?). Overall though a very nice stay.

Overall good impression. Clean room. The bed had probably done it’s time. Nonetheless the hotel has a nice location and kind staff. There is a small winery and cheese “boutique” (Bourgondy-something) across the street that it is worth to check. Lots of quality wine and cheese.

The hotel gave us a free upgrade from the triple room to a junior suite, which i felt was a pleasant welcoming gift! The room was also ready before 2pm, which my parents and I really appreciated since we could rest for a while before going to sight see. The room was bigger than most hotel rooms in Amsterdam, and gave ample space for 3. Side note, amenities such as toothbrush and slippers were not provided, only given when requested. The location of the hotel was superb too, 10 mins walk from the Centraal station, with a lot of nearby cafes, shops and supermarkets. Loved the neighbourhood! My only complain was bed bugs??? My mum woke up with big bug bites from the night before, and it causes a lot of irritation and itch. Should there have not been this issue, the stay would have been perfect. Please look into the issue and clean accordingly to prevent other travellers from experiencing the same thing!!

I want to give a 3.5 star rating to this hotel. While the location is great - minutes away from the main shopping street, the rooms are very small. For a couple on a longish trip in EU i.e. 3-4 bags, this was definitely cramped. The central location ensured that we could make it an ideal base to explore the city on foot. However, the ride to airport is bit long but that's also because of the zone in which this hotel is located. The bed though was comfortable, and so was the bathroom. But overall I found that there were better options in Amsterdam at similar prices (possibly in the vicinity too, I didnt check thoroughly). Of course if you up your budget slightly, you can get branded/chain hotels too. Will probably choose another hotel on my next visit to AMS.

Three of us occupied a family suite for two nights and found it to be a great base to explore the city. It was a little pricey but nevertheless we had a nice stay. The staff were friendly and gave assistance when it was requested. Our main criticism would be that there were some areas needing a refresh, e.g. carpets on the hallway had worn in places, decoration needs the odd touch up here and there and our bathroom desperately needed a new toilet brush, oh and some soap would have been good. When we asked for milk to make a drink we were directed to a nearby supermarket - not great to be honest. But hey, these were minor things but not what you want or expect to find in a non-budget boutique hotel. With so many people passing through the hotel wear and tear is inevitable, but they just need to keep on top of things to maintain standards.

We stayed here for two nights and have to say it was absolutely lovely. Very comfortable peaceful stay We arrived a couple of hours early to ask if we could leave our luggage there and were told that since the room was ready we could check straight in. The room was a good size and clean. We had a double bed and then a small divide and two single beds for the teenagers.The coffee making facilities were fab with a pod machine and bottles of water Bathroom was big with separate shower and bath and wonderful under floor heating. we also left our luggage here on the last day as its a easy walk to the station. the only downside was they dont supply soap in the bathroom, body wash and shampoo but no soap at the sink which i did find slightly odd!

Nice size rooms. Very spacious and modern bathrooms. Huge windows overlooking the main road which can get loud at times but it was nice to people watch while I drank my morning coffee. Stayed for 4 nights. Our room was only cleaned once during that time which was quite disappointing. The front desk staff lacked personality and the lobby and elevator are tiny!! However you really cannot beat the location and the price is reasonable for what you get. Would I stay here again? Probably not. Amsterdam is such a beautiful city with so many hotels to choose from. Hopefully better luck next time

We enjoyed two nights in this small boutique hotel. The fit out was new and simplistic. We were in a twin room with ample space and a good sized bathroom. The reception area is open and welcoming as are the staff who are available 24/7 to assist you with directions, restaurant recommendations or an umbrella if it's raining. It's located within an easy walk of the central station and is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of the red light district but still within easy walk of it. A great place to staff for romantic couples or friends traveling together.
