Banks Mansion is on Amsterdam's Golden Bend, "about the most prestigious stretch of real estate in Amsterdam" (Lonely Planet). It's a few minutes' walk from Bloemenmarkt -- the world's only floating flower market, founded in 1862 -- and around a kilometre from Dam Square and the Royal Palace.
There is an Art-Deco style throughout its public areas and guestrooms, with marble floors, brown leather sofas and wooden furnishings. Each evening, the self-service bar in The Living lounge has a Dutch cheese trolley, as well as a selection of international snacks, charcuterie and desserts. And each morning, you can choose from a breakfast buffet or cooked-to-order dishes.
All rooms have a Nespresso machine, as well as decanters of whisky, gin and cognac -- there's also a pillow menu and free use of the DVD library and an iPad for the duration of your stay. They also have bathrobes and slippers in the black-and-white tiled bathrooms. Most rooms look out onto Vijzelstraat, which can sometimes be a little noisy, or you can upgrade to a Deluxe Canal View room, which have French balconies.
