This elegant hotel just three stops or 20 minutes walk from the Gare du Nord and five minutes away from the Galeries Lafayette and the Opera Garnier is a former bank, as the name suggests. The grand architecture of the building's former incarnation is used to great effect with a dramatic lobby and bar. The staff were very friendly -... More

An exceptional stay, helpful and friendly staff from the moment my cab arrived outside the front doors of the hotel. The location was situated close to my business meetings, but the Galleries Lafayette provided a place for food, relaxation and replacing a pen left on the Eurostar earlier in the day. By Paris standards, my room was extra large and... More

This is a very nice hotel just near lafayette galleries. So if you are in paris for shopping it is really good. But if you want to see places and monuments I believe the other side of seine river is much more convenient. The rooms are spacious (which is a rare thing in Paris). Internet connection in rooms are free... More

As with other reviews - we found the staff are a stand out here! The entrance is fantastic and our room was pretty funky albeit small. We got this place as the Mystery Hotel with Wotif and paid $240AUD. A good deal I think :) I'm not sure it's a 5 star hotel with it's current capacity, but for us... More

We stayed at this hotel firstly back in May. When we arrived we were kindly greeted by a doorman who was very welcoming. During our stay we enjoyed the hotel so much that we decided to stay at the Banke hotel for a second time in July. The service is consistent and of very good quality. The doormen at the... More

We recently stayed at the Banke Hotel as the last stop of our honeymoon, hoping we'd saved the best until last. We were so excited as we had looked at the lovely photos online which was the reason we booked this place; we wanted to splurge on our last hotel before leaving for home and the hotel looks sensational in...

I went with my wife for her 40th and we simply had an amazing time. The Hotel and decor is outstanding! The staff were extremely helpful at all times, to the point were they printed off our boarding passes for our return journey home, which were then posted under our door in a sweet little envelope. Small touches like that... More

We did not stay here, just dropped in for a drink. Served by Robin. Hotel area near bar very beautiful with a big gold sofa. Drink was expensive...24 euros for 2 drinks. We just had one each but it was nice to experience a drink in a five star hotel.

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.
