Overall staff were very helpful in every aspect, from places to visit to providing buckets of ice to the room, I emailed in advance as I have trouble sleeping and they upgraded us from a deluxe to a suite on the fifth floor away from the lift - excellent!!

Twice aday, the room service came to your room. In the mid morning, which we never seen and early evening, thy would come in and place foot towels by the bed and truffles on your bed (it s the little things in my life)
The room decor was romantic with a fresh rosé in a vase by the massive bed with six pillows.
The gym is tiny with three pieces of cv equipment and max weight 10 kg - but you don't really go to Paris to use the gym. The nearest metro was called le petelier which was 300 metres away - a few stops from the Eiffel Tower.

I have stayed all over Paris and have never found a hotel I would return to until now. The hotel and staff are fabulous. 6 of us went for my mother in law's 60th birthday and the manager upgraded us all to suites which was a wonderful surprise.

The decor is fantastic and for Paris I think the rooms are an excellent size, even the Executive which is the type we had booked.

Just a brilliant hotel and excellent value for the quality of the furnishings, decor, service etc.

Really loved this Hotel. This is my first time in Paris and I would stay here again. It is very near to Galleries La fayette, the Italienne quarter and the Opera House. The staff are very helpful and friendly . The room was small but adequate. Overall a very good experience.

My husband and I stay here. We had an executive room, which was a nice decor and modern. The bed was a bit small tho... The staff was very friendly and super helpful. We both enjoyed staying here, and would definitely stay here again!

We were recommended this hotel by a friend, so we stayed here for a night on our return to Paris..great to have a different location/ area to stay in, and just loved this hotel! It was a delight to walk in to,. I loved looking around the lobby of this once-a-bank hotel, full of quirky ornaments. Our room was great, really comfortable, great bed and sheets, we had a superior room and had lots of space.
The staff were helpful and concerned, particularly as my husband arrived with a badly cut foot from the metro, and luckily we were able to extend our room till the following evening so that my husband could rest his leg.
It is very close to the metro, other have mentioned the shops, but although tempting, I never went there, but instead took advantage of the hotels location to wander through the Opera House, which was just 5 minutes away. A great way to end our holiday in France. We would definitely return and recommend this hotel.
Also a fantastic, opulent looking bar with great drinks....at hotel prices!!

Paris is full of hotels.

Paris is actually full of crappy hotels: expensive, dirty, small places. This one is a clear exception: clean, big rooms and can offer good prices if booked in advance. Location-wise the Banke Hotel is right in front of Lafayette, close to the metro and to Bvld. des Italiens (cinema, restaurants).

Staff is very nice, restaurant is quite good and the building itself (an old bank) is beautiful.

The rooms in the 6th floor have a nice view of Paris' rooftops and the Sacre Coeur. They also have big showers!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 6th floor
