Reviewed 6 July 2016 via mobile

Hotel is located right in the hub of town, although in a quiet street. Modern interior with nice breakfast and friendly staff. Room was a bit disappointing, clean but quite basic. Would go back for business travel, not leisure.

we found the banks hotel to be a pleasant place to stay. Great location near the cathedral and walking distance to pubs, restaurants and cobbled streets of the old city. The hotel was spotlessly clean and well managed and offered free drinks and snacks every evening. lots of funky art work to give it a cool feel

We sent a mail to the hotel since we were three friends who wanted to book a room. The hotel suggested a superiour room with a square view connected to a single room. The pictures looked nice so we booked. At our arrival we were shocked when we saw the rooms. The superiour room was not at all a superiour...

This is a hotel that would have everything to be a five star winner. The location is super, close to the Grote Markt and the main shopping area, very nice decoration and friendly staff.

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
