Great location, everything at the walking distance. Nice breakfast. All inclusive, even though didn't really use it. But some people were too drunk, used it a lot i guess, and were noisy in the lobby.

I stayed a week in Amsterdam at the Banks Mansion & had a great experience. The room was clean, modern, & spacious. The staff were courteous, professional, & provided helpful advice about things to see and do. Every person was great but Ties was especially helpful. One of the unique features is the open bar. Each evening there is happy...

Fantastic stay with some friends to celebrate turning 50. Perfect location, wonderful staff (in particular Kim and Max but they are just the names I remember), excellent breakfast. Would definitely stay here again. The staff are what gives this hotel an edge.

The Banks Mansion is amazing. The entire staff could not be more accommodating and I mean the entire staff. The room was clean and modern, the bed is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on and that includes my own bed. Don't even get me started on how incredible the pillows are, seriously. But the bathroom, the...

I am slightly drawn about writing a review on Banks Mansion. On one hand it is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in and on the other if I tell everyone how good it is you will all want to visit and that makes it more difficult to get one of their fabulous rooms. A lovely location...

Stayed here for 3 nights recently. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. My room was lovely and the mattress one of the best I've ever slept on. Great breakfasts also. The location is superb - so central, lovely cafes, restaurants and bars nearby and the staff recommendations were spot on. I'll be back.

Dear dlysons339, I am delighted to hear that you loved our hotel so much. And isn’t the location just perfect? Right in the middle of the center, located at one of the famous canal, with everything at walking distance. Did you know the mayor of Amsterdam lives just across Banks Mansion at the other side of the canal? We are...

We stayed 3 nights at Banks Mansion last weekend and couldn't fault it. It was ideally located, we could walk everywhere and the staff were always happy to help with any query we had.

Dear Dr. Wolf, It is very unfortunate to hear that the river cruise company has cancelled the entire journey. It is however not possible to receive a refund for your booking at Banks Mansion. At the time of booking you have chosen to book the discounted, non-refundable, non-changeable stay. This means that we offer you a very nice discount on...
