We stayed at Hotel Banke for 4 nights and everyday was great. The staff was very helpful (most do speak some English) and they were also extremely friendly. We were in Paris for a wedding and the hotel was so accommodating. They helped every way they could. Our room was tiny but well appointed and very clean. (Small rooms are...

Our first visit to Paris was tainted by lodging at this hotel. If you seek classic French pompousness, microscopic suites, and horrid guest service you'll love it here! Save yourself loads of money & frustration and just rent an AirBnB. **SLH upgrades also NOT honored here! Manager is a PSYCHO.

Wonderful staff. Fabulous room. Front desk personnel (Marian) are exceptional and go beyond being helpful. They are professional, knowledgeable and caring. The bell staff were courteous and were a great help with directions. (Kenny and Juan Carlos). The location was central to everything. We walked everywhere..Notre Dame to Monmarte and everywhere in between. Bravo & Merci!!!

This hotel is in a great location, just next to the Opera house and only a 20 minute stroll from the river, making it a perfect base to explore all the famous Parisian landmarks. The view when walking into the lobby is gorgeous and the rooms, views and service from the impeccable staff make the whole stay a lovely experience....

We have stayed in Banke's sister hotel in Madrid, and loved it, so this time in Paris decided to try the Banke Hotel. Beautiful, impressive ground floor and impeccable, extremely friendly service from all the staff from the doormen to the reception and bar. Our room was very good, extremely comfortable bed and good quality toiletries. The only fault was...

I was travelling for work and this is one of our recommended hotels as it's very close to our office. Although the hotel is beautiful and the staff are professional and courteous, the standard of the rooms is not what I would expect for the price and hotel rating. Firstly the bath towels were covered in hairs, this is something...

I recently booked a trip to Hotel Banke and had to cancelled due to the US travel advisory for us citizen traveling to Europe.

This was without a doubt the best hotel I've ever been to. Our dinner at the restaurant was incredible. The room was beautiful. The staff was wonderful. I will definitely return to this hotel when I come back to Paris.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 5 days and it was great. We were greeted by Rudy the luggage handler at the entrance, very nice guy ,was always a pleasure to have a chat with him. Beds were very comfortable. Good location. Heating didn't work but Emanuel quickly provided us with a portable heater and a bottle of champagne!...

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
