The kind of Hotel you expect in a City like Paris: old traditional Building in the same Street as the Galleries Lafayette, with a wawawoum Interior and Atmosphere. Bowls of Sweets welcome you at Reception and the Experience carries on in the dark Corridors and Rooms. The Design is too cool for tables, so the bed serves as lavish chaise... More

Location great - staff friendly and professional - the food, room service/restaurant exceptional but over priced. The room we had was ridiculously small considering nearly 400 Australian per night, air con hardly worked at all and woke up numerous times through out the night due to a hot stuffy room - was bought to staff attention - but nothing they...

The hotel is located close to many of the tourist attractions as well as a nice shopping area. From the moment we entered the hotel we learned that the staff is very service-minded and professional. We booked a suite for the weekend, and it was spacious, clean and held a high standard. Price is mid-range, and you can get some... More

We stayed at the Banke for a work meeting in July, the decor is maybe a little too much but rooms are comfortable and quite large for Paris standard. Location is central with many department stores in walking distance. Good spanish restaurant also on site.

This is a luxurious hotel that you can find good deals for! We've stayed at Banke 3 times now and it is definitely our hotel of choice in Paris. I don't know anywhere else that pipes the delicate scent of woodsmoke through the corridors! Champagne on the sumptuous breakfast buffet, a shower with a view of Sacre Coeur, staff who... More

The baroque decor of the hotel is certainly unique! This was a very nice 4-star stay for my fiancé and I as we were passing through Paris. We were upgraded to a deluxe room as SLH members, which was still faIrly small, but comfortable for the two of us. The service was fairly good, though I would be careful in... More

Picking a hotel in Paris is never easy. The location and the room size come with a cost. The rate we paid for Hotel Banke was just the right value for money. The staff were excellent, friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are not large but they are designed well to maximise the space. Of all the hotels we've stayed... More

We booked a deluxe room for 4 nights and were disappointed at how small it was, considering how expensive it was. But I guess that’s Paris in July…Nevertheless, the décor helped to make up for this – a mix of industrial chic meets baroque which complements the beautiful architectural elements of the building. Great bathroom including bath and separate shower... More

PROS: Well sized rooms, good location, extremely clean, helpful staff, good WiFi CONS: Lack of view unless you are on the 6th floor, no electric kettle in the rooms Walking into the Banke I was sure this was THE Grand Budapest Hotel come to life. The shadowy red and antique gold lobby, topped with a glass cupola, is pretty impressive.... More
