My family took us here after our wedding in july 2016. This is a modern hotel near the flower market, with helpful staff. The amenities are amazing: cocktails and appetisers in lobby, whiskeys in the room, nice breakfast downstairs. The only drawback are the small rooms, and the even smaller closets. The rooms only have one free standing closet, and...

Banks Mansion is not the most expensive or the most luxurious hotel in Amsterdam but it's perfect. Ideally located for everything you're going to want to do & see in the city.

Very well located on the Rembrandtplein which is walking distance to pretty much everything you want to see but also felt not too busy / noisy, including shopping in the 9 Streets, the Van Gogh museum or a stroll in the Vondelpark. No bar, restaurant or room service but the lobby has free fingerfood and drinks (incl. wine and hard...

The hotel was everything we'd hoped. The location was very central, not too far from the busier areas of Amsterdam but close to the museums and many restaurants etc located on the nearby canals. Great view overlooking the canal. The complimentary bar was a nice touch, which we made use of every day!
