I wish we had ended our vacation in Amsterdam and this wonderful hotel, because it spoiled us for our later stay in Bruges and Paris! The all-inclusive price includes a fabulous more-than-continental breakfast, free wi-fi, free mini-bar, free liquor in your room, free wine, liquor, beer and soft drinks 24/7 in the lobby, and free afternoon hor d'oeuvres, The service was impeccable, friendly and helpful with every request we made. The location was perfect: walking distance to Rembrandt Square, Flower Market, Van Gogh and Riks Museum, plus a tram stop was less then a block away. Our room was not on the canal, but we had no trouble with street noise. Unlike other reviewers, we were thrilled with the size of the room, larger than what we typically experience in Europe. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but were lit a bit on the dark side. Personally, I thought the mattress was too soft, perhaps a bit worn, but that is my only complaint. Any return trip to Amsterdam will absolutely include a stay with this hotel.

My husband and I stayed here in April 2012 and we loved it. The room was nice and clean. We stayed in a room with a balcony overlooking the canal. The view was great and the noise level was great too. Sometimes, when you stay in a room overlooking the canal, the noise from the street can get annoying, however, in this case, we did not have an issue with noise. The room was quiet. The service is excellent. The staff were very professional and very nice. Even though we loved the location, the room and the staff, in my opinion, we thought that it was awesome that the hotel offers complimentary liquor. Every evening they have a wine and cheese reception along with the choice of premium liquors. It is a great perk and one that will take us back here again and again. The breakfast buffet is great as well. Overall, the next time we visit Amsterdam, we will definitely stay here!

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the canal. You will not be disappointed.

This is a very special and wonderful botique hotel as centered in the Amsterdam attractions area as possible. Service is personal and friendly. Every restaurant recommendation was excellent. Banks offers the best wifi I have ever used. Rooms are very comfortable with individual heating/AC controls. Great European breakfast with an omelette bar. AND did I mention this is the only hotel I know of that offers a free mini-bar, free wine/beer/liquor, and excellent afternoon hor doerves? You will be glad you stayed here. There are many reasons why this hotel is regularly in Amsterdam's Top 10.

Located near all the action in Amsterdam with a very friendly staff and all inclusive philosophy to the property which includes a delightful breakfast daily, and a mini bar in the lobby which includes free soft drinks, wine, liquor and snacks. In addition, free in room/complimentary cognac, whisky and gin. Staff was all over and quick to fix a slight issue I had with room layout - very accommodating and eager to please and make my stay pleasurable. Daily "happy hour" wine social in the lobby is a nice opportunity to mix and mingle with other guests. Rooms are fairly spacious and bathrooms suit your needs. Staff was very easy to work with and brilliantly recommended we visit the Keukenhof Gardens (as it was peak tulip season) and was kind enough to put together a tour for us. This is definitely worth visiting as the colors are amazing, well worth the time! Great staff, friendly - homey touch to the property, would definitely recommend. Restaurant recommendations are:

Restaurant d'Vijff Vlieghen
L'Entrecôte et les Dames
Zuid Zeeland

Thanks for a great stay!

Just spent a weekend at Banks Mansion - from the moment we entered the hotel to the time we left the service was excellent, Rooms exceptionally clean, staff friendly and helpful. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world and this one beats them all on service. Thanks for a great time.
