I had very high expectations of this hotel due to the reviews and website but was a little dissapointed.
The location was great. Close to the metro, nice cafes and restaurants local and was safe at night. We came in on the eurostar and it was 15 euros for a cab to the hotel.
The room was a bit dissapointing. We were on the 6th floor and although the room was a good size with a sweet little balcony it was not in great shape. There were scuff marks down the walls and some wallpaper was pealing. The tiles in the shower were not very clean and there was hair on the sink. For the money you pay to stay here I would have expected it to be clean and tidy.
The staff were really friendly and helpfull. We were there over easter and they left easter eggs on the pillows which was a nice touch.
Breakfast was outstanding with plenty of choice and all top quality ingredients.
WIFI was faultless and public areas of the hotel were pristine.
Overall it was a good stay but they should ensure the rooms are a true reflection of the standard advertised on their website to avoid anyone being dissapointed.

Built in 1927 in the purest Art-Deco style by the architect Jere´me Bellat, it was acquired in 1967 by Marianne Moreau’s family, current owner and manager of the hotel. Since then, three generations have succeeded one another, transmitting with passion their love for beauty, genuineness and hospitality. Marianne, with the help of her husband, the architect Laurent Moreau, designed everything new in the building, opening a new chapter in the Banville Hotel's history. ... more less
