Banks Hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to the restaurants, shops and attraction. The reception area is very modern with a great bar areas, where drinks and snacks are served every evening, which is a lovely touch. The staff are friendly but the reception is not 24hours. The rooms are spacious and very modern but the bathrooms...

I stayed here for three nights over summer. It has a great location and upon entering the lobby you are filled with a night hope that this could be great hotel...but it turns out to be an OK hotel nothing special. It tries to deliver on a Mama Shelter-esque vibe and aesthetic but unfortunately does not quite hit the mark....

The hotel is in a very quiet neighbourhood but at a very good location - 5 minutes walking from the The Cathedral of the Lady. It is mainly done in white and orange with a very minimal feel in the rooms. The room had a comfortable double bed, seating couch, a decent size TV, a big lamp, small table, hair...

Banks hotel tries to step away from the classic hotel formula. Especially the well designed breakfast room succeeds in this. The rooms try to be all arty farty..but fail miserably. They are not very spacious. There's no privacy if you want to use the restroom; only a glass wall and a curtain seperates you from your co-travellers. Nothing a good...

The hotel as such is in good shape meaning the rooms are clean, appliances are working and the bed is commfortable so for a short stay Banks can absolutly work but what pulls down for me was that the basic conviniences were missing making it closer to a hostel than hotel - at check in you are aked to pay...

Had a lovely stay at Banks Hotel. The room was very comfortable and modern. Loved the glass cube bathroom. The hotel isn't staffed after hours which is a little odd but it didn't make any differnce. The cleaning staff were a little shoddy and we had to ask for our sheets to be changed several times before it happened. Overall...

Beautiful hotel with a unique, modern character. The interior is fresh and wonderfully decorated, the bedroom was very comfortable and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Perfect for a city break or business trip.

Rubbish stay at the Banks. It bills itself as a boutique hotel but in this case it isn't true. First, it's not a hotel really. More like a fashionable hostel. It has no hotel amenities that people traveling need, especially business travelers. Their is only one person working the entire hotel at any given time, which means there is zero...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
BANKS, a wonderful hotel where you can find a Daytime Café and a Lazy Lounge. Located right in the middle of the most fashionable area in town. You will be charmed by the original and modern look of its interior design. Wood, glass and concrete were melted together to enhance a harmonious mix of design and tradition. The furniture has been selected with the utmost care and is completed by their owners creations. A display of exhibitions by young artists decorate the walls. The result is fresh, bright and invigorating. Lounge next to the open fire place or a stroll straight into town? Always feel welcome at BANKS! ... more   less
