Hotel Banks Mansion

Herengracht 519 1017 BV Amsterdam

Hotel Description:

Business hours of reception: 24 hours

In 2004, Hotel Banks Mansion opened its doors in a stately former bank building on the Herengracht Canal. This very special luxury hotel caters to business as well as tourist travellers who like to enjoy the good things in life. It is situated at one of the best locations of the city: alongside one of the loveliest canals in Amsterdam, where it intersects the Vijzelstraat. Here you'll find yourself in the heart of the city - surrounded by art, design, culture and a range of culinary attractions.

Visit the upscale luxury shops in the famous PC Hooftstraat, explore the down-to-earth and very ethnic Albert Cuyp market, or visit one of the many world-famous museums and historical monuments. Wherever your fancy takes you, Banks Mansion is your ideal base of operations.

With only 51 first-class luxuriously appointed rooms, Banks Mansion can offer you old-fashioned individual hospitality.

The rooms, furnished in the style of the Berlage and Amsterdam schools of architecture, will be a pleasant surprise. Leaded glass elements contribute to a warm, colourful and cosy atmosphere.

In addition to the regular 4-star facilities, you will also have your own personal private bar, a DVD player, an LCD TV, air-conditioning and wireless Internet.

The bathrooms are actually relaxation areas and offer you various facilities such as a 'Rain Shower'. In addition, some rooms have their own steam room or full-length bathtub.

All our guests agree on one thing: Banks Mansion is beautifully and tastefully furnished. Some call it retro and others Art Deco. We are just content to say that it has a very special and very cosy ambience. The Amsterdam School and the famous architects Berlage and Frank Lloyd Wright inspired us, and we look forward to hearing your comments.

'The Living', as the lounge is called, serves as a quiet retreat during your adventures in Amsterdam. Here you can sink back and relax in the luxurious armchairs for as long as you wish while enjoying the drinks and snacks which are 'on the house' and waiting for you at the royally furnished bar. As our guest, we are sure you will quickly feel at home.

Every weekday morning, we invite you to a luxurious breakfast in our 'Kitchen', where everything is prepared a la minute and served from our open kitchen. You may not want to miss even one of these occasions, as it is not only healthy but also included in the price.

As for lunch or dinner, we will be happy to help you find your way. Banks Mansion is surrounded by a wealth of gastronomic attractions. Our guest relations officers will be happy to provide you with advice about the multitude of culinary possibilities in the neighbourhood. Whether you prefer chic, hip or down-to-earth, we'll find a way to surprise you.

    Amsterdam Travel Guides

    Amsterdam is a city like Venice founded on and still today focused around water and waterways.
    However, unlike Venice, Holland's largest city is not only a museum piece.
