Immerse yourself in 4-star luxury in the heart of the city centre. Few people are privileged with the luxury of having a bedroom on an Amsterdam canal. Through the stained-glass windows, glowing light pours into the room. There is an excellent bed (you pick the pillows you like), and in the bathroom with its typically Dutch black-and-white tiles you rinse away the hustle and bustle of the city under the rain shower. A flatscreen TV, wifi and private audio equipment immediately make you feel as if you are in your own home. And this feeling is reinforced by the complementary use of your own Private Bar.

            Very helpful staff, homelike feel, easy access to Van Gogh Museum & Dame Square on foot, good variety of choice for breakfast. Complementary drinks and snacks. Nice hotel!

          • Couple
            10.0

            From the first 30 seconds there we were completely amazed and impressed. The staff was very nice and helpful, the facility was clean and very comfortable and the extras were amazing. They really do make you feel like its a home away from home. It's a little expensive, but entirely worth every penny. I would highly recommend the Banks Mansion for any couple, your or old.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Extremely homely with friendly enthusiastic staff. Complimentary drinks breads cheeses and pates for guests was a nice surprise.

            Room cleanliness below standard. Carpets not cleaned/vacuumed thoroughly.

          • Single
            8.2

            Perfect staff welcoming, interesting package with free mini-bar and some other goodies (e.g. coffee station)

            Some minor issues with shower water evacuation

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Your desk staff was young & friendly; however, they were not well versed in where to go and what to do as far as restaurants & shopping, visiting major sites. They only advised of places that the obviously the hotel recommends for their advantage, such as restaurants and taxis. They seemed more concerned that we follow their advice than in providing what the guests were looking for. They sent us in the wrong direction a couple of times...we still haven't found Brasserie Flo & we had a reservation there!

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Cosy and charming everything included: open bar and breakfast good location, good bed good service good value!

            Room noisy (tram) instead of double windows

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            Perfect Location in Amsterdam, right beside Herrengraft canal, easy walking distance to many attractions and eating facilities, friendly staff excellent concierge services, excellent complimentary breakfast, complementary bar and coffee available all day in the lobby lounge with complimentary appetizers each day around 4 pm. Free wifi. Very clean rooms with comfortable beds and choice of pillow type.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Seriously good place. Very freindly receptionist on arrival, a trait that was evident in every other member of staff. The bedroom overlooking the Herrengracht canal was excellent with a good size bathroom. The bed was probaby the most comfortable I've slept on in living memory. Breakfasts were very acceptable and although our purpose was to revisit Amsterdam there was ample opportunity to sample spirits, wine and beer which were included in the price. Location superb.

            A plea from the heart - if you are stocking beer could consideration be given to stocking local beer?

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            central location and breakfast included. Lovely hotel and the all-inclusive drinks was a major factor in choosing this hotel, however, I am not sure it was value for money as the hotel was significantly more expensive than other 4 star hotels we looked at.

          • Couple
            5.8

            (Good points)Free drink/snack service at 1st floor/Nice access to sightseeing points/Room sandal that can be hardly seen in European hotels as amenity goods in a room/Friendly stuffs

            (Bad points)Steps at the front door so had to bring heavy suitcases/Door bell to ask front person to release the door each and every time/Only one set of everything(towel,cups etc) for 2 people in a room/Price for canal view room/If stay just for a night to sleep as business trip, I recommend this hotel. If you take someone special to make good memory by spending EUR260 for one night, then I don't.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            This was a lovely hotel, and the staff were absolutely fantastic. Very helpful, thoughtful and genuinely cared for all our needs, and the best bed and pillows I have ever experienced in a hotel :)

          • Single
            8.8

            Very stylish, original in its decoration, the wholw picture was perfect. Inclusive drinks also very relaxed

            Although a very luxurous room still very noisy when it comes to neighbours arriving in the middle of the night.
