This was our first trip to amsterdam and found this hotel through trip advisor. totally lived up u to all our expectations. Booked deluxe room with canal view and what a view. Gorgeous!!! Great location a stones throw from the busy Rembrant square full of bars cofee shops and restuarants.. ten minute walk from the busy damn square. Staff great helpful and friendly. complimentary bar saves u a fortune on drinks and huge selection to choose from. breakfast freshly made to order absolutely delicious!( try the french toast) Will definetly return to banks mansion.. hopefully soon.

Just walking into this hotel gives an idea of how attentive and special the place is. After being taken to our room and collapsing on the bed after a busy week and stressful journey we just felt totally relaxed with a fantastic view over one of the most beautiful stretches of the Gentlemans Canal known as the 'Golden Bend'. The hotel pays very special attention to detail, with everything from a 'pillow menu' to the magazines and facilities and buffet in 'Living Area' downstairs. Everything is inclusive so there are no hidden costs. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others and will definitely return.

This is a lovely hotel ... comfortable, immaculate rooms ... a very accommodating staff ... free drinks and snacks provided for the guests, a wine & cheese happy hour and an outstanding cooked to order breakfast. The location is ideal - be sure to request a canal view - within walking distance to most sights. Don't miss the Handbag & Purse Museum two blocks from the hotel (amazing collections from early centuries up to current times).

this is a great hotel experience. you cannot beat the extraordinary staff. from the front desk to the kitchen to the people who tidy the rooms, they were all wonderful. they should be cloned and sent to a lot of the hotels I've stayed in where they thought it was a privilege to allow me to stay there. as for the amenities, you've probably read the other reviews. well. it's all true. great food, great coffee, and drinks and movies included. hell, they should just clone the hotel!!! highly, highly recommend this establishment. and if you're a frank lloyd wright fan, you'll love the furniture.

The title says it all.. we stayed 3 nights and could not have been happier. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The hotel is ideally situated to walk to almost any part of Amsterdam whether it be the Van Gogh museum, the flower mart, red light district or Dam square.

On this trip we visited Edinburgh, London and Amsterdam.. In all categories Amsterdam was the winner this would include the Banks Mansion.

great hotel at an excellent location.
I stay here a lot and love the fact that the Rembrandt square is around the corner for my night-life.

the receptionists are very nice, especially Nina was my favourite.
I see a complain about their taxi's but i used those a lot and they are very professional, fixed prices everywhere and almost limo like.
they even brought my cellphone back for free once.

the rooms are nice and I like the living room concept they have downstairs, where there is an open bar and internet area.
