"Perfect Boutique Hotel"
This was my second stay at Banks Mansion, and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Amsterdam. It is very convenient for museums, galleries, flower market, Dam Square, canal trips, we walked everywhere, as so close by, but there are trams from outside if you wanted to use. The concept of courtesy full service drinks, snacks, coffee etc was a delight, and the staff are so attentive and welcoming, very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions for dining and trips out. The decor is smart and art deco styled, with a modern twist, the lounge area has comfy armchairs, free ipad use, free wifi, free bar, roaring fire… such a home from home, relaxing and friendly! Our room was on the fourth floor, roomy enough and such comfortable beds and pillows, ensured a great night's sleep… didn't hear any outside street noise at all. The bathroom was luxurious, huge shower head and deco styled basins… the complimentary toiletries were lovely, as were the fluffy robes. My husband was impressed with the free room bar and Nespresso machine… great touches that really added to the pampered feeling we enjoyed during our stay. Will be back again definately and cannot recommend Banks Mansion highly enough. Just book it, you will not be disappointed!
