This hotel come with all you can drink free booze and it attracts a very different clientele that likes to just free load on booze. This is only worth that extra premium if you just going to stay in the hotel and drink!!! i rather explore Amsterdam instead... The room very small and not that nice. I stayed in better...

My husband and I stayed for one night at the Banks Mansion, but we wish we had been able to stay much longer. The staff were very attentive and friendly.

The real plus points of this hotel are: the friendliness of the staff, always willing to chat; also the stylish decor, it's all very well-appointed; the free bar, which even includes spirits; and the location, fairly close to the major sights but a little way from the noisier streets. Breakfast was also very good, with a wide choice, and eggs/pancakes...
