As other reviews have alluded to, this hotel is thought to be too 'out of the way', rubbish!
Bus stops and metro station just a few minutes walk away and then you're able to access all of the places of interest with ease.
We stayed in the Marie Apartment; this has fantastic views of the Eiffel Tower and across the skyline. Very comfortable bed and fairly spacious room. My only comment would be that is is tricky to shower without flooding the floor as the screen is quite small and you have to hold the shower attachment as it's not fixed to the wall.
All of the staff are attentive and very, very helpful. In particular Roman, who spent time with us showing us the best bus & metro routes to use.
We used room service and the food was good, this is supplied by a local restaurant and delivered in about 20 minutes.
Overall, I would stay again, the hotel was very clean and comfortable, pity I only discovered the eggs and bacon for breakfast on the last morning, it was delicious and I wished i had found it earlier!! However, the continental breakfast was very good and served in the lobby, which actually was very nice.
- 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
