After having a horrible experience at a nearby hotel, Banks Mansion took us in with open arms! All thanks goes to Michelle at the front desk for easing our early check-in process (which was last-minute), helping us with our heavy luggage, and overall ensuring we have a pleasant stay. My 2 cents in: Excellent staff, delicious breakfast buffet, and a...

Dear Pedrosidebent, Thank you for your 5 star rating! Good to hear that you had such a pleasant stay in our Mansion. Banks Mansion doesn’t have an entertainment team but there is so much to offer nearby for every age. And the nice thing about our location is that everything is walkable, the museums, bars, shops and other hotspots. I...

Yet another amazing stay. Walking into the Banks Mansion is like walking into your favourite Aunt's home. You are cared for so well. Said loads before so won't repeat that but just to add this is still the best hotel in Amsterdam in my opinion. The hotel operates an internship/apprentice policy which I really admire. This year we met Darleen...

My husband and I were here over the Christmas holiday for five nights and really enjoyed our stay. The décor, with all it's beautiful wood and Frank Lloyd Wright type style, made each area of the hotel a point of special interest. The front desk staff were all friendly and helpful and were happy to assist us in any way....

Had a problem with the stench of a smoker, so had to move room twice, but otherwise a very pleasant stay. We particularly liked the lounge room at reception and guests did linger and enjoy company so it wasn't a pretend shared space. Rooms are small, breakfast very good and the canal views, classic Amsterdam.

Everything was wonderful, the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Loved Amsterdam, really enjoyed the museums, especially the Van Gogh. The little known Museum of Canals is well worth a visit. The hotel just made our holiday even more perfect. Couldn't wait to get back to it in the evenings. Had dinner at Spelt restaurant.

We had 3 nights at Banks Mansion as a last minute New Year break. The location is excellent - 20 minutes walk from the station (or on a tram route if not walking), just around the corner from Rembrandtplein nightlife, and a short walk from the Rijksmuseum. With a secure entrance, just off Herengracht it felt very safe and cosy....
