2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Welcome to Banks Mansion A different kind of house If we had to describe ourselves in traditional terms, we are a boutique luxury hotel situated in Amsterdam’s famed Golden Bend district. But at Banks, we don’t really like labels. We prefer doing things our own way. We are your home next door, filled with friendly, sometimes slightly nosy neighbours who want to make you feel right at home from the moment you enter through our front door. We take the time to get to know you, because more than a onesize- fits-all grand gesture, we know that it’s the little things that make all the difference. Like your favourite cocktail ingredients or tea blend, along with our (almost) famous signature socks, which will be waiting for you in your bedroom. Located alongside the canal in a different kind of house Amsterdam’s Golden Bend, our quirky, familiar atmosphere lets you experience the city like a bonafide local. Grab a bike and explore the town, or borrow Banks’ resident pup for a picnic at Vondelpark. Whatever you choose, our family will hook you up with itineraries, tickets, reservations, guest lists, packed lunches and more. Our uber-personalised service is un-conditional, which simply means that, no matter what, we’ve got your back with the whole shebang. Why do we do all this? Because we are family, and we are here to make sure that your trip to Amsterdam is absolutely epic. Welcome to Banks Mansion, the home next door. Banks Mansion is one of the leading four star hotels in Amsterdam with a dominating factor of presence in the lists of best hotels in Amsterdam. More importantly Banks Mansion is in the top 10 of best hotels in Amsterdam. The hotel features many unique selling points, looking at concept, location, level of staff & ambiance. The so called ‘’All Things Inclusive’’ concept is a worth winner and highly appreciated among the hotel’s target market. As no other hotel in Amsterdam offers such services this is Banks Mansion’s absolute unique selling point.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A disappointing stay. The third time in staying here, and clearly, there is a number of cost cutting. The lift didn't work on the first day, and there was a lack of cups in the bar area. There were lots of people complaining, and by the second day, more staff were available to ensure the above issues were dealt with. However, the biggest disappointment was the breakfast. Lack of cups, hot food ie bacon, croistants, and fruit bowls. Clearly, there was a shortage of staff and no restaurant manager to oversee. This happened three days in a row. We paid a lot of money, and it was disappointing there were food items not available each morning. However, the room itself was lovely, and we had the best sleep.

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. So homey and comfortable, yet every amenity you could possible want - and then some. Location is perfect, and the staff was so welcoming and accommodating. When returning to Amsterdam, we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Second visit to the Banks Mansion and still very pleased. While are room was small it was quiet, clean and well maintained and stocked. The open bar and evening happy hours are a super addition and very relaxing. Breakfast is included and is excellent. Staff are professional, friendly and happy to help. Looking forward to yet another stay.

This hotel was the best. The bedrooms were spacious, the beds comfortable, there was a free minibar, and coffee making facilities. Our room had wonderful views over the canal. In the living (the hotel lounge) there was a free bar where you could help yourself to your favourite tipple) and free hot drinks. Every day they provided. different treats, (again free). When we arrived at the hotel we received the best welcome. we have ever received from hotel staff in any of the hotels we have stayed at. This set the scene for what was to be a wonderful stay at the Banks Mansion. The hotel is very central and all the attractions are within easy walking distance. We would definitely return here.

A unique hotel experience right in the middle of the action, downtown Amsterdam. A very special hotel, conceptualised in art dèco style. Impressively consistent. An extra bonus point for the amenities, including free snacks and beverages in the lounge area, which created a highly social atmosphere with plenty of opportunities to get to know other guests, and to share experiences and recommendations on things to see.

We returned to Banks Mansion for the first time in many years, and we were pleased to see that not much has changed. The service was exceptional and the "living" concept made things very easy - especially coming immediately from the airport with a jet-lagged family. We wanted to host a little birthday party for our daughter, and Kaoutur and her team at the desk could not have been more helpful. We ordered some balloons and a cake, and they made sure that everything was in the room and ready for the surprise. Then, we when we came downstairs to celebrate, the team and "living" concept turned a small party into a big one! The breakfast is amazing and Sandra was so sweet to make sure that we always had something delicious in our belly to get ready for the day. In addition, Sandra remembered that it was our daughter's birthday and let the entire breakfast room in a round of Happy Birthday. Needless to say, Banks Mansion has a fan for life in our daughter.

This is our third time staying at the Banks. Each time we were overwhelmed with how wonderful this hotel is. Fantastic and accommodating staff, wonderful comfy rooms, fantastic hot breakfast and all sorts of extras you can only find when staying with friends. And the location is perfect. We can't recommend it enough.
