2 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW via mobile

Check-in was a new adventure in rudeness (and that's based on my Paris standards, not American expectations.) The hotel has seen better days. My room had damages to floor, a hole in the drapes, sloppy caulking in the w.c., scratches on the paneling... The promised daily mineral water only arrived once in 6 days. My bedside rose on the first... More

I had a single room, in which I didnt even have a place o leave my laptop, but when asked for a larger room i was moved to another one slightly larger. I appreciated... More

The room is clean and cosy. Staffs are kind and they all speak English. This is really helpfull for us. The location is great. It takes 5 min by walk to go to Opera. This is the most comfortable hotel I have ever stayed!

We went for our wedding anniversary and the all staff of the hotel were wonderful . I have been other times in Paris and this was the best stay I ever had in this city. I will definitively repeat in the future.

Had 2 nights. Classy hotel, nice building, with a beautifull lobby. Classy hallways with art. Entrance staff always there and helpful. Couple of negs: noisy room due to wooden floor and too thin door separating to next neighbor, rather dead/quiet area at night (closest is Opera close)- but great for day shopping. So not a super 5-star but pretty good... More

Banke's entrance and lobby are spectacular and ... "different" (in a nice way: the building used to be a bank). The decoration of the rooms is also nice and interesting. However, the rooms are very small (I had a junior suite which would have been a normal single room in other hotels) and, despite a plethoric staff, the service is... More

All in all a very good hotel in the middle of Paris and very close to Galeries Lafayette and Metro. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, helping us out with reservations for restaurants. We had a superior room which was all we could expect. I have one negative and that is the gym. In fact, if you expect to be... More

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.
