Its location is very good, staff is super friendly, just try not to book a room on the internal court as its close to the elevater so its noisy.
Every floor have a theme.
Very close to la fayette and close to opera , louvre , hard rock, and metro station.
You can even de tax and refund in lafayette!
Been in banke 4 times till now, its my favourite hotel
Cheers!

Thank Ttimos

This is an ideal hotel for a stay in Paris, may it be for business or with family. I became quite a regular, and every single time everything is perfect: the rooms, the restaurant, the sumptuous breakfast and above all everybody working there! I can't wait to go back!

First of all, the atmosphere of this hotel is very nice. That is stylish and cool. The staff are excellent. Actually, I had some trouble, but the staff dealt with it politely. Furthermore, this hotel is located very well for tourist. bus the stop from airport, the entrance of subway, and the biggest department store is near the hotel. So, I do recommend this hotel wiht confidence.

I was weary after reading others reviews, advising that they heard the metro go past everytime... do you have super human hearing?! I couldn't hear a thing!

The hotel is located is a brilliant area, quiet with the closest Metro only a very short walk away, with a fabulous little patisserie half way.

Hotel Banke wowed me from the start, from the moment you walk in you feel that you are the only person that matters to the staff. The interior of the hotel (lobby and hallways) are chic with colours of chocolate and plum with accents of gold and almost an 'African' feel.

The rooms themselves are very decent sizes for European standards and I do not think I have ever slept so well in my life. Every effort is made on the hotel behalf to make you feel welcome and appreciated.

I will definitely be returning and I always recommend my clients to stay here also, and I still have not heard one bad thing from them either.

This is not your usual business hotel. Rather unique. Lots of dark red, very hot and dark. Room was faux luxury, again hot, but with the key card in its slot for long enough the air con kicked in, otherwise the windows opened onto the street. The toilet had been placed so that you couldn't really sit on it other than side saddle! In the communal area of the bedroom floor was a rather strange museum-style cabinet of African jewelry made from bones. The internet did not work. Breakfast okay but again the room far too hot. Check out slow.

This was an interesting hotel that somehow didn't quite engage. It is wonderfully located for mainstream Parisian shopping and has striking if rather sombre decor. Service from front of house staff was excellent and the general fittings of the rooms were luxurious. However the room was too hot and the air-conditioning unresponsive. There is no provision for coffee or tea making in the room which I would have expected at the price and the communal areas other than restaurants and bar very limited and as already noted rather dark.

I am those kind of person that has no direction sense who are very easy to get lost, after 3 turns in a road, I will be lost already. . I can go to the restaurant bathroom and couldn't find my seat in the way back. So when my friend got the news that I'm traveling to Paris (my first time) he recommended this hotel to me. It's in the prime location of central Paris with Lafayette right across the street, Metro station downstairs, walking distance to the Opera, Louvre Museum. Even for me, I can easily find my way back to the hotel after running around these tourist spots.
The hotel room are tiny but everything is really clean and the design is hip. Staff are very nice with extremely good service, I arrived to the hotel at 8:00 in the morning and they specially help me to do the early check in without me asking for it.
I will definitely come back to this hotel for my next trip and recommend my friend to book this.
