Loved the location. Wonderful room and best breakfast ever. Oh and the staff was very nice! Loved that all the alcohol and drinks were free and available in the lobby, as well as you room. Gave us excellent recommendation for dinner, a steak place, De Nachtwacht, about 2 blocks away, on Rembrandt Square.

Having never been to Amsterdam before, except transferring at Schipol, choosing an Hotel was a bit of a finger in the air job. However, the previous reviews and the cost rather indicated that it might be a reasonable choice, and so it proved. This is a small Hotel well located for the major attractions of the City and most places...

This is a lovely hotel! Staff is very accommodating, professional, and speak several languages, including English. Coffee, tea, wine, liquor, and other assorted beverages are always available. Rooms are very comfortable, with French doors opening to the canal. Reasonably priced. Excellent breakfast included with a wide variety of food options.

Perfect location to discover Amsterdam and easy access to metro. The early evening snacks were welcome reprieve from our long sightseeing days.

The staff went the second mile to ensure we were confortable. The rooms are...

Banks Mansion was the perfect hotel choice for our retirement trip to Amsterdam! The location was incredible as it made for easy walking either in to the center of town (Dam Plaza) or to the museum district. There were numerous restaurants in the area, which was also convenient. The all inclusive full breakfast (cooked upon order) was a great way...
