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

What a cool place! Whilst staying here you must check out the snakeskin toilets and sinks near reception! A lovely bar area and a nice breakfast room downstairs. We had an exec room with bottle of bubbly and nibbles arranged for our arrival. Nice bathrooms and great staff. Only issue was we could smell smoke in our room - we... 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. BUT choose your room carefully - I know from other reviews that some rooms on the upper floor have views of the Sacre Coure - Ours (201) was a suite room on the first floor -... More

While we had a valid booking.com reservation we were told to leave the hotel upon arrival at 9pm after a long international journey into Paris. Why? 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

So much to like, but a couple nits to pick. Rooms are cozy, but not too small. The rooms are very comfortable and have all the needed amenities. Hotel has almost a museum feel about it in the halls as they have display cases all over with old jewelry and other relics. And, yet the finish is more modern. The... More
