I recently spent two nights at Hotel de Banville with my boyfriend, for a special weekend away. We arrived at the hotel, and were greeted by the manager, who spoke excellent English and was very nice, making reservations at a restaurant for us, and also recommending another nearby (Villa Pereire, which was great). The lobby was small but very well presented. However, we went up to our room, number 25, and I have to say that I was a tiny bit disappointed - it was very small, and looked nothing like the chic and modern photos on the website. The bathroom was fine, although again it didn't look like the photos I had seen. And while both the bedroom and the bathroom were clean, they did look a little worn around the edges, like they could do with a lick of paint and generally freshening up. The room was very quiet though, and the bed was comfy, so it was ok as a base to explore the city - the Metro station was only 5 minutes walk away, as were a number of restaurants and cafes, and you could easily take a nice walk into town, as we did.
In short, the staff were lovely, and the location very good, but the room did not look at all like the website had promised.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Friend of Rimbaud, Verlaine, Baudelaire, Hugo Theodore de Banville, the Poet, gave his name to one of the most romantic hotel of the capital. 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
