Inside, the sophisticated 1920s-style lobby features leaded stained glass, rich wood panelling, and Art Deco motifs. Clusters of wood-framed armchairs and sofas accommodate a mixture of weekday business and weekend leisure guests, who relax by the fireplace while the enjoying canal views.

Two popular forms of recreation and ways to explore Amsterdam are cycling and boating, both of which can be found a block from the hotel.

Guestrooms. Spread across four floors, the Banks Mansion Hotel's 51 guestrooms are characterised by a blend of Amsterdam School, Berlage, and Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired design. Work areas comprise desks with leather swivel chairs and high-speed Internet ports, while flatscreen televisions include satellite channels, complimentary in-house movies, surround-sound speakers, and CD and DVD players.

Expert Tip. Visitors keen to experience the real Old Amsterdam should head over the bridge towards Prinsengracht. Most of the canal houses on this stretch were built during the Dutch Golden Age, characterised by charming narrow streets, slender canals, and many fine examples of 17th-century architecture.
