“Wow !”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

This is the best hotel that I have ever stayed in. From the friendly and helpful staff (front of house, kitchen and housekeeping), especially William. The room was luxurious as well as the common areas. Great breakfast and great central location. I will be back.

Original concept : all-inclusive for a 4* hotel in the middle of a big city
perfect location.
all drinks included in the room rate from the bar, the mini bar + Cognac/Gin/Whisky in the room
very nice pre-dinner time in the bar : wine and cheese dejustation.
Friendly staff
Good bedding
What else to say ? Perfect / Very nice moment

Room Tip: canal view is better of course

My wife and I stayed in this hotel last summer for a last minute weekend away, and it was absolutely amazing. It has fantastic breakfasts with an excellent omelette station where they will cook different things for you, and lots of other choices besides. The rooms were nice and it was in such a lovely, and central, part of Amsterdam. Best of all, there were free drinks available at all times of the day - hot drinks, alcohol and soft drinks - and you could sit and have a drink and use one of their iPads in the lobby. I would love to visit there again. It really was such an excellent find!

Great canal view room, the perfect Amsterdam experience. Staff was professional, helpful and agreeable. The breakfast Kitchen was quite enjoyable and copious. Excellent city centre location, short walk to the main museums in the city.

Room Tip: Canal view rooms, after all it is part of being in Amsterdam.

The hotel is very nice and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. And most importantly for our stay as we were checking out, the staff member helping us told us of a bad accident which had stopped taxi and train traffic to the airport. We had planned to take the train from Centraal Station which would have been a disastrous waste of precious time. She said that buses were still running, and told us which bus to take and where to go to catch it. As it turned out we made our departing flight and all worked out because their staff was paying attention and guiding us as we checked out.

Amsterdam is a great place to visit, mark it into your itinerary for sure. We were not taking any chances in booking teh Banks Mansion, both Lonely Planet and Tripadvisor throw it out as a place to stay and they are right. Excellent location, good room with balcony overlooking canal, happy staff - its got it all. We felt very comfortable and the small things like the bar downstairs that is complimentary add to the experience. I am not sure why more hotels dont do this, just add on a small amount to the room and its a winner. You can walk just about anywhere from the hotel and we did. Make sure you book in advance for Anne Frank, the Van Gogh and The Rijksmuseum at a minimum. These three are must sees. If your budget fits the Banks Mansion is a winner!!

My wife and I stayed here for our 2nd Anniversary and we were not disappointed.

The staff were extremely helpful and frankly lovely to deal with. Rooms clean and crisp with a lovely view over the canal - with its fairly central location (approx. 1 mile from the Central Station) also an ideal place to stay to explore Amsterdam.

It is fairly pricey but with its city location this should not be surprising however this is offset by the fact breakfast, afternoon cheese / cold meat selection and complementary bar along with the superb staff making it a worthy place to stay.

I was highly impressed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Banks to anyone..

Room Tip: Worth the extra to get a canal view...
