Banks Mansion FIVE STAR Staff and Accommodations! Our travel agent booked the Banks Mansion in Amsterdam for us. Knowing nothing about the hotel or the city, we were more than pleased with its location, its staff, it rooms, and its attention to small details.

The Banks Mansion is a nice but not luxurious hotel. That said, it does have a great location near Rembrandtplein and is also walking distance to all attractions, museums, great restaurants, etc. The staff is absolutely wonderful - friendly and helpful at all times and without exception. We also liked the all inclusive rate concept meaning your breakfast, minibar, permanent...

Neighbourhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular.
