The hotel is located close to many of the tourist attractions as well as a nice shopping area. From the moment we entered the hotel we learned that the staff is very service-minded and professional.
We booked a suite for the weekend, and it was spacious, clean and held a high standard. Price is mid-range, and you can get some good deals on the website as well. The lobby bar offered a relaxed and quiet atmosphere with great selection of drinks and top service from the bartender. Don't hesitate to include breakfast at the hotel, the service and food was super. The hotel has quite a unique style, so be sure to look at the pictures on the homepage to see that they fit your taste. Based on service and location, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Suites are often at good prices, but they are in different styles so be sure to check pictures and f...

We stayed at the Banke for a work meeting in July, the decor is maybe a little too much but rooms are comfortable and quite large for Paris standard. Location is central with many department stores in walking distance. Good spanish restaurant also on site.

Room Tip: Suite on the corner

This is a luxurious hotel that you can find good deals for! We've stayed at Banke 3 times now and it is definitely our hotel of choice in Paris. I don't know anywhere else that pipes the delicate scent of woodsmoke through the corridors! Champagne on the sumptuous breakfast buffet, a shower with a view of Sacre Coeur, staff who remember you year on year and go out of their way to please. The location is great too with easy access to the metro. A real winner for romantic breaks.

The baroque decor of the hotel is certainly unique! This was a very nice 4-star stay for my fiancé and I as we were passing through Paris. We were upgraded to a deluxe room as SLH members, which was still faIrly small, but comfortable for the two of us.

The service was fairly good, though I would be careful in asking for restaurant recommendations. Probably best to do your own research and ask the front desk to help you with a reservation once you have a specific place in mind.

The location of the hotel is great - we could walk almost everywhere (Montmartre, Louvre) within 15 minutes and the streets surrounding the hotel are fairly quiet in August. Try to find a taxi on the street - if you call one through the hotel, the taxi drivers will start the meter and count the distance in traveling to the hotel to pick you up.

All in all, a nice experience!

Picking a hotel in Paris is never easy. The location and the room size come with a cost. The rate we paid for Hotel Banke was just the right value for money. The staff were excellent, friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are not large but they are designed well to maximise the space. Of all the hotels we've stayed at we would return to Hotel Banke.

We booked a deluxe room for 4 nights and were disappointed at how small it was, considering how expensive it was. But I guess that’s Paris in July…Nevertheless, the décor helped to make up for this – a mix of industrial chic meets baroque which complements the beautiful architectural elements of the building. Great bathroom including bath and separate shower and lots of natural light through the large windows which afforded a wonderful view of Sacre-Coeur.
The reception and concierge staff were very friendly and efficient as well as being multilingual. There was an evening turndown service that you normally don’t get in a 4 star hotel. Received bottled water on arrival but this was not replenished during our stay.
Although the hotel is near Galleries Lafayette it is in a quiet street with little street noise and also close to the Opera. It is a bit out of the way compared to being in the Marais or in that area, but if shopping is your primary objective this is a great location.
