Our canal front room was spacious enough and quiet. Also in your room in gin,whiskey, beer and soft drink. Staff friendly and helpful....

A lovely boutique hotel, a real gem with a homely and welcoming ambiance. The staff were exceptional and so kind and helpful which as a disabled person I found most reassuring, nothing was too much trouble for these lovely people. The recommendations for restaurants were great too. The friendliest hotel that we have ever stayed in, we absolutely loved it!...

An evening in the Banks living room was a joy, free bar and nibbles with a blazing fire. Fabulous after a...

I stayed one night after a riverboat cruise. I was greeted very warmly by the gentleman at the front desk, and was able to check in early. That gentleman subsequently gave me detailed instructions on how to get to several museums, shopping areas, and restaurants. Hotel is very convenient to the Rijksmuseum and other attractions. I purchased my ticket to...

I can honestly say we got one of the best nights sleep we have had in a very long time. The bed was comfortable and the blackout curtains made it wonderfully dark. Everything about the hotel was there to make our stay more comfortable. It's nice and luxurious without being pretentious. Great staff, great amenities, and comfortable room. It's the...

We absolutely loved the Banks Mansion! We had a view of two canals in a very comfortable room. It was quite charming with nice little touches and surprises. The staff was excellent and could not do enough for us. The breakfast was just fantastic: A lovely buffet as well as made to order eggs, crepes, waffles, french toast. There are...

The hotel is beautiful, comfortable and centrally located, but the best part of this hotel is the wonderful staff. They are exceptionally friendly and helpful, and do everything to make your stay memorable. I can't say if it would be suitable for a family with children, but it's perfect for a couple.

The first thing you should know about the Banks Mansion is that their concept is "all-inclusive"--everything from the daily wine and cheese to the fully stocked mini-bar is included in your stay, which is amazing. It feels like being at a resort. Anything you could want, at pretty much any time of the day or night, is available for you!...

Friendly staff, made-to-order included breakfast, very comfortable bed, wine and beer included, and good location. The room was spacious and overlooked the canal. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again if we go back to Amsterdam.
