We spent 4 nights at Banks Mansion before boarding a river cruise ship in Amsterdam. This hotel was, by far, the best hotel we have ever stayed in, bar none. Location was close to everything--walking distance to many attractions: museums, etc. and a block away from a tram stop.
But the hotel itself was the star! Front desk staff were always friendly and very helpful, especially Jacqueline, Anouk, and Willem. Hatim offered us snacks every day when wine was available (free) at 4:00PM. Then cheeses and sausages, olives, etc. were put out in the lobby (also free) at 5:00PM. Other drinks (alcoholic as well as soft drinks) were at a help yourself bar in the lobby, 24-7, also complimentary. Ergo coffee machine at the bar could make any hot drink at the push of a button. The breakfast offered daily included eggs cooked to order, or pancakes or French toast, all cooked by the seemingly many-handed cook, Ola, who could juggle three orders at once without batting an eye. There were sausages and bacon, cold meats, fruit, several breads, croissants, and yogurt, too. Did I mention it was all complimentary?!!!
Our room was clean and comfortable and not overly noisy despite facing the main street. It was really a home away from home during our time in Amsterdam! Worth every cent.
