Hotel Banke: exceptional location, exceptional service, exceptional decor. Close to shopping at Galleries Lafayette and Printemps. In house meals are worth staying in house for; however right across the street is a fantastic Italian cafe. White truffle linguini and bread that is light and airy. In the Opera district and away from the "touristy" hustle and bustle of the Eiffel... More

If you are looking for a well located holiday/get-away hotel, then this is a good choice. The beautiful building, quirky interiors and nicely appointed rooms of Hotel Banke will tick most of the boxes for tourists: metro not too far, good shopping close by, in-house dining options, nice bar and a 15-20 minute walk to Gare du Nord (to catch...

we stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is well located and a nice building with good decorating features. The rooms are also relatively nice. During our stay, however, we experienced some problems. On arrival we found they were filming a movie in the lobby which meant we had to be quiet, keep out of the way of the filming... More

I have stayed a couple of times at this hotel. The rooms look nice and the building is impressive. Service is nice too. Only this time did I try the gym. Only 2 bicycles, I wouldn't call that a gym which is a real shame for a ***** hotel. Also, there was a mouse in my first room on the... More

This is a lovely hotel - the reception is beautiful. We couldn't fault the reception staff who were very helpful with taxis and directions.

We wanted to pay everyhting upfront by debit card and weren't allowed to do so. The receptionist insisted for a credit card - although we wanted to pay everything upfront :-) I guess the... More

My second stay at the Banke and I still haven't seen the vaults which apparently still exist there. This hotel is fabulous - a little way off the standard tourist Metro route but close enough to be considered inclusive. It is opulent and well deserving of its recently awarded nouveau star. From the pleasant and helpful hotel porters that meet... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
