The Banks Mansion is a beautiful hotel in central Amsterdam. The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful. Food and treats at happy hour were great. The location couldn't be better as you could pretty much walk to everything. The museums were close by as was the Central Station and Red Light District.

Room tip: the canal view rooms are lovely.

Dear Katherine K,

Wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Banks Mansion! Our staff will always do their best to help as much as they can. They book your trips, make restaurant reservations and prepare the best pancakes and omelettes.

Also, our ''full service concept'' is very loved by our guests. Especially the open bar and the wine selection, which is from 16:00-00:00 and the cheese tasting, from 17:00-19:00 in the Living.

We definitely hope to enjoy your visit again someday.

Best regards,
Paul Buyser
General Manager

We travel fairly extensively, particularly in Europe. We have had the pleasure of staying in many fine hotels. As i write this we are in the midst of our stay at The Banks Mansion and this is this first review I have ever written while still at a hotel. But, it is truly exceptional. The room is nice, but we have experienced larger and nicer. The breakfast provided is extremely good and varied. But the singularly most outstanding quality is its staff. The friendliness and genuine desire to help you in any way is remarkable. They each seem truly glad you are there. Directions and recommendations are complete and accurate, and always with a smile.
The hotel location is also a plus and there must be over 200 restaurants within a 5 block easy walking radius. If you want to feel like your visit is welcomed, this is the place.

We stayed at Banks Mansion for a week at the end of July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everyone we encountered at the front desk, for housekeeping and in the breakfast room was VERY pleasant and went our of their way to be helpful. The restaurants the staff recommended were all very good.

The hotel is situated in the "golden bend" area, right off the Herengracht canal and a major street. It's a few blocks from the Rembrandtplein and there's a handy tram stop steps from the front door. You can walk anywhere from the Banks Mansion. The rooms have free wi-fi. This hotel is not inexpensive, but it's hard to beat the service and location.

We stayed in room 208, which is a bright, decent-sized room, especially for Amsterdam. It's not a canal view room, but you can see the Herengracht. The shower is a bit narrow and the lighting in the room could have been better, but those are quibbles.

The hotel does a very nice breakfast - a combination of buffet items (breads, meats , cheeses, etc.) and made to order hot items (eggs, pancakes, etc.).

Every afternoon the hotel puts out complimentary snacks and wines in the lobby. Coffee, tea and cold drinks are available in the lobby all day.

We would not hesitate to stay at Banks Mansion on a future visit to Amsterdam.

We wanted to spoil ourselves so booked this hotel. Great room with steam bath also in the bathroom. Love this. In the room you have free mini bar and in the lobby a free bar with a wide selection. Therefore you would often find people sitting in the bar in the lobby which gives a good atmosphere. Friendly staff and good service. Only thing do not take your car to central amsterdam. It cost a fortune to park-50 euro per day.

Dear Soren K,

thank you very much for this 5 star review.

Glad to read you were happy with our unique "full service concept".
Indeed our open self service bar in the Living is 24/7 waiting for our Guests and it is a great spot to meet fellow Travelers.
The prices also include the minibar,cookies and spirits in the room and lovely breakfast in our Kitchen.

Indeed parking is not very budget in Amsterdam. However we do offer a Valet parking service for all of our Guests for €39 for first night and every following 24h for €24. We just need 45 minutes notice for the Driver to pick up or to bring back the car. This is a cheaper, and more comfortable way to park your car secured. Or there's a nice garage east from central station, which offers secured parking for about €20.

Let us know if we can arrange the parking for you next time!

Hope, to be able to welcome you back in the near future!

Warm regards,
Paul Buyser
General Manager

We stayed here for three nights before a recent cruise. I chose this location because of others in our group. This place is fantastic. The rooms are smaller but very nicely appointed with a huge bathroom with both a tub and showed. The bed was very comfy with a thick memory foam topper. Breakfast was delicious with fresh omelets and pancakes, a fresh orange juice machine, and several other items. Perhaps one of the best features is what they call the living room which had a fully stocked free bar 24/7 with beer, liquor, soft drinks, bottled waters and juices. The hotel is near the museum district and around the corner from the Rembrandt plaza with bars and restaurants. It was an easy walk to the dam square less than a mile away. I would definitely stay here again.
