Just returned from a short break with my wife. The Banks hotel was perfectly positioned for all sights, but also far enough away to get a restful nights sleep. It was about a 20 minute walk to the Anne Frank museum, 10 mins to Dam sq, 15 mins to De Pijp. Williem and Nancy on the front desk we're excellent, really welcoming. Free bar service worked well after a long day of sightseeing. We'd recommend one of the cycle tours and would certainly stay again.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled as a couple

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write this great review.

The recommandation for a cycle tour we definetely share with you. All the highlights of Amsterdam are within walking distance of the hotel, but a bicyle ride to Amsterdam is a highlight on its own.

We hope to welcome you again in the future. To make sure you receive the best personal service and the best available rate I can advice you to always book via our own website.

With warm regards,

Esther Boers
General Manager

I just completed an 7 night stay at this fine hotel. We went as a family of 4 and I can say that the staff here is like family. We were treated very, very well. The front desk staff was very patient and informative. They were eager to help you at any time. Willem and Jacqueline were fabulous as were the rest of the staff.

The room was perfect. The hotel was very well located. The breakfast was superior and fast and easy. The numerous snacks and little bonuses kept us well fed, happy and ready to explore this great city.

I am ready to go back asap..

Room Tip: Canal view was very nice. Take the stairs.

Dear guest,

Thank you for this wonderful review.

We are honored to hear that after a 7 night stay the staff of Banks Mansion felt like family. The Banks Mansion hotel is supposed a home away from home, with the staff as a 'substitute family'.

We hope to welcome you soon again and indeed, it is always best to book directly via us.

With warm regards,

Esther Boers
General Manager

In the case of this hotel, you not only get what you pay for, you get more than what you pay for. With a gracious staff, complimentary drinks of all kinds at all hours, late afternoon snacks, a full breakfast, comfortable rooms, and nice amenities, this hotel can't be beat. It's a little far from the museum area, but the streetcar is right outside the door. I've never stayed in another hotel that came even close to providing the comfort and service of the Banks Mansion. This is a perfect vacation hotel. A++++++

Room Tip: Our room faced the street, but I think some might face the canal.

Very comfortable rooms in a convenient location for exploring Amsterdam. The buffet breakfast is superb with omlettes cooked to order but what really sets this place apart is the 'full service' offering of drinks and snacks all day long. How nice to come back to the hotel and help yourself to water, coffee and even alcoholic beverages. Added to this the friendly staff means we weould return if needing a hotel in Amsterdam again.

Stayed at Banks Mansion for 3 nights at the beginning of April to celebrate my 50th birthday. It is situated in a brilliant central position close to all attractions, you can walk to all of them however as the weather was quite unpredictable we used the trams quite a lot, number 24 goes from virtually outside the hotel.

The rooms are spacious and well decorated, lovely shower too. Complimentary coffee and a mini bar all included. The staff are polite and helpful. At 4pm everyday the wine, beer and spirits are available to drink in the lounge area, wine is lovely not the usual stuff you get included in your price. Cheese and meat are available from 5pm, this is great if you want a quick snack before your evening meal. Breakfast is delicious, something for everyone and although I didn't have a cooked breakfast my other half assured me it was also delicious, freshly cooked while you wait. There are lots of lovely restaurants around catering for all tastes.

I would recommend a canal cruise and a visit to Anne Franke House.

All in all a great first time in Amsterdam, a lovely city.
