“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We stayed at Banks Mansion for 5 days in february, and had a wonderful time. The rooms were a bit old, but comfortable. The bed was soft and the minibar was included in the price. We spent a lot of time in the lounge where there also was free bar and cheese and wine in the afternoon. I have actually never spent that much time in a lounge before! There was iPads and computers available, and the staff was very service minded and nice. The breakfast had everything we could want, from croissants, pancakes and omelets, and it was one of our favorite moments of the day. It is also situated close to everything, and Rembrantplein just behind the hotel is a fantastic place to hang out in the evenings. I would definitely come back another time.

We have always trusted trip advisor and again we were not let down. Banks Mansion was a wonderful spot for our holiday. We stayed over the New Year holiday and even though we weren't booked for a lovely night the people and Banks Mansion made the perfect arrangements of us. The room was beautiful and the service was superb. There simply are not enough adjectives available to describe this place - try it out for yourself and you'll understand. This is the only place we'll be staying when we visit and I encourage any and everyone to stay - it was brilliant!!

Loved this hotel. Ideally situated for where we wanted to see. Free help ypurself bar in the lobby and in your room. Cheese and biscuits served at 5pm every day and little titbits put out all day.

Thoroughly recommended. Staff were amazing too. Arrived at 10am for a 3pm check in. Room ready and straight in! Fantastic!

We like the hotels "living room" where the included bar is located. we enjoyed a glass of wine with cheeses in the afternoon. We can highly recommend Banks Mansion

Our stay at the Banks Mansion in November was excellent, the room was perfect, the bed mattress gave me the best nights sleep I've ever had, (i forgot to ask the staff the make of them) and the staff could not have been anymore helpful.. It is in an ideal spot for the tourist, been close to the centre..we will definitely book again on our next visit to Amsterdam

I have to agree with many of the previous post here regarding the Banks Mansion. This was one of the best hotel stays that I have experienced in quite some time. From the moment that I arrived I knew I had chosen the correct hotel. The lady who was working the reception desk could not have been more helpful. In addition to explaining the hotel amenities, she also provided me with a lot of additional information, including a walking map and other assorted information concerning the Amsterdam area.

At check in, I was upgraded to a canal room view, which was beautiful. The room was nicely appointed and I lacked for nothing. As others have noted, the hotel's all inclusive approach was a pleasant difference from many other hotels that charge for a number of items.

I stayed here for four nights, and wished that I could have stayed longer. The staff, the food and beverages and the facility itself were all excellent. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. It was a treat!
