We arrived at the hotel where we were greeted at reception. They were extremely polite and helpful. The gentlemen took time to show us a map of the surrounding area, the highlights of Paris that we must see and the best ways to get to the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomph....etc which we found very beneficial as this was our first time in Paris. He told us we had been given an upgrade to a newly refurbished room on the 1st floor.
As we walked into the room we couldn't believe how fantastic it was! Decent size with lovely decor and air conditioning. (Which was needed after the heat in Paris throughout the duration of our stay.) The shower was fantastic and bed was extremely comfortable. It was a great joy knowing after a long day of sightseeing you were able to return to such a lovely hotel.
Throughout our stay the staff were more than happy to help with any enquiries you may have and their English was fantastic.
The lobby downstairs had a baby grand piano and beautiful paintings and there was live music on the Thursday evening which was wonderful.
In terms of location it is near two metro stations. One being on the direct line to the Eiffel Tower, which we would recommend visiting at 10pm because it sparkles. It is a 15 minute walk from the Arc De Triomph, which again was stunning at night. There are plenty of restaurants in the surrounding area and near the Metro Port De Champerret.
Overall I would like to thank the staff of Hotel De Banville for making our trip so pleasurable. My Girlfriend and I were stunned by the beauty of Paris and the comfort and homeliness of your hotel and brilliant staff. We did not want to leave. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone and hope to stay again in the future!

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
