Our first time staying at a 4 star in Paris (usually stay at 5 stars) but wanted to try something a little more hip and less stuffy. We chose Banke for a few reasons including price, gym, and what seemed to be a more social bar atmosphere compared to the 5 star boutique we usually visit in Paris. Our main issue was with the bar staff who seemed more interested in his cigarette needs than his patrons, but maybe I don't understand France. The second issue was the gym, which is practically non existent. To be fair, our room was nice and the bed and sound privacy were quite good for Europe. The housekeeping staff was noticeably on their game and the bell hops / door staff are extremely hard working and very, very friendly. The folks at the desk were very helpful and we had a lot of needs. Overall I would recommend the hotel but we likely will not return until they improve the gym. If cocktails and working out aren't important to you, you should be happy here.
