Always vibrant and busy

Amsterdam, Mokum, the 'Venice of the North', we love the city! Amsterdam is a cosmopolitan city bursting with culture, innovation, history, hotels, bars and restaurants. Of course, the Carlton Hotel Collection is also located here, in a historic building in the heart of Amsterdam, directly opposite the official residence of the Mayor!

Banks Mansion

in the heart of Amsterdam

Banks Mansion is situated on the Herengracht close to the Leidsestraat, Spiegelgracht, Rembrandtplein, Rijksmuseum and Leidseplein. Go on a shopping spree in the P.C. Hooftstraat, take an enjoyable stroll to the popular 9 Straatjes area or appreciate fine art in the Rijksmuseum or the Stedelijk Museum. And you will probably still have time to taste the foods sold at the Albert Cuyp market or tour the canals on a canal boat.
