I stayed at the International for approximately 1 week and the location was excellent. I encountered 2 reception staff members who were not too bad but the rest were shocking. I was fairly happy with my room..the ceiling fan was a necessity as it was quite stuffy. My rate didn't include breakfast and I didn't eat there as it seemed... More

The Banff International is in a great location just metres from the main street's shopping and dining precinct. The hotel is a little dated and the room we stayed in, a standard 2 x doubles, was on the small side and had slightly dated but not depressing decor. The room and bathroom were very clean and for an overnight stop... More

Banff international is an ideal base for a skiing holiday in the rockies. The ski buses stop right outside. The breakfast buffet is great - plenty of food! THe reception staff aren't the best, but I have seen a lot worse! The spa has been refurbished and is lovely - the changing rooms are very small though. The room are... More

Stayed 10 nights in Feb while skiing. Great position close to the shops and restaurants, and over the road from safeway but was still far enough away to be quiet. Ski buses stop at the Ptarmigan Hotel next door and their service to Lake Louise and sunshine was superbly organised and reliable. Room was good for the money, about what... More

We spent 10 days at the Banff International. It is indeed very central located so that you can always walk downtown and go right the corner to Safeaway. the rooms are very spacious but furniture a bit few. It was difficult to put all our winterstuff in the wardrobe. The bathroom is small in comparision to the room and there... More

We stayed at the Banff Int. Hotel for Valentines 08 for 4 nights. The hotel is right in the middle of town so it is very convenient to walk to the shops and restaurants. The rooms are small but that seems to be common in the area, as I did a lot of research before booking our room. There are... More

Just returned back from 1 week skiing in Banff staying at the Banff International Hotel. Previous reviews left me wondering if this hotel was a good place to have booked. So here it goes: The hotel is very central and excellent base to explore from. The staff were very friendly and the service received was good. The hotel is both... More

As a base for a ski trip, could not have asked for much more. Huge room and beds, clean and tidy. Pleasant and friendly staff. Excellent location as its right at the central part of town next to all shops/restaurants and ski coach pick up. We got free wi-fi, 24hour coupons but as many as you want. Breakfast was fine... More

We stayed for one night at the Banff International Hotel. It's centrally located, on the main street in Banff, Banff Ave. Its location is one of the best points. It's also a clean hotel, and the rooms were spacious. We had a room with two queen size beds. The beds were hard, the pillows were great. Our room was near... More
