The hotel staff were super friendly and accommodating! The entrance and lobby were very chic and beautiful, same with the room. The location was also close to the best shopping and the metro. It made it easy to get where we wanted to go. I would definitely stay at the Hotel Banke on my next trip to Paris!

We enjoyed a superior room on the 6th floor overlooking the back of the hotel. The hotel is beautiful, boutique style. We had a wonderful stay. The staff were so helpful and friendly and spoke English beautifully. Our room was quiet! No street noise, no noise from the hallway. We felt we were the only occupants! The buffet breakfast was...

Stayed here for 2 nights in March and really enjoyed it. The whole is beautifully decorated and really has great style. There are unexpected surprises round every corner, gold coloured sofas, artistic breakfast and even snakes skin toilets in the lobby - no kidding. We had no problems with service - everyone was very helpful. Will definitely go back.

Hotel Banke is an excellent hotel with top comfort. It is in the heart of Paris and very close to the most important monuments and shopping centres. Service is very good and in many different languages.

I stayed here for 4 nights in March. I was booked into a standard double room on the 5th floor overlooking Rue Lafayette. The room was nice enough with a double bed, flat screen TV and a bathroom with a bath & a shower. It was however extremely small... even by city standards, this was tight. Breakfast was a very...

We stayed at the Banke for four days and enjoyed a number of things: the boutique feeling of the hotel, the nicely decorated room, the luxurious toiletries as well as the friendly stuff. The breakfast was the high point of our stay, cooked with fresh ingredients and very nicely presented. The location is also exceptional, allowing us to walk around... More

Divine lobby and decor that is intriguing and feels special and very in the moment. Room was cozy and spacious with fantastic waterworks and bath products. Turn down service every night. Great food. Kind staff--they even stuck with me while I practiced my rudimentary French phrases and always helped me with directions. You can hear the rumble of the metro... More

Excellent hotel in an excellent location. Very handy for the many attractions and shops that paris is so famous for.

Stay here frequently for work. It's fine but the Marriott around the corner is nicer. The rooms are fine but the whole hotel is quite dark and a bit dated. Staff is friendly and helpful and (thankfully) speak English quite well. Good location.

I stayed there for 2 nights, it was ok ... hotel is not really 4 star class, rooms were clean but walls were poorly done. There is not many restaurants around the hotel, so if you planning on eating you need to search hard. All the cafes around are basically bars which is not helpful if you don't feel like... 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.
