Great value for Paris, I'll stay here again!

Posted Jun 12, 2014
My wife and I stayed at 3 hotels during our trip to France (two in Paris), and Hotel Banke was the best overall. Nice rooms: our room had a tasteful modern decor, very clean with a comfy bed. As all rooms are in Paris, it's small by US standards, but comfortable - cozy without claustrophobia. It was warm this past week, and the AC worked splendidly. Great location: It's very nicely located by the Opera, a safe area right by tons of shops and traveller friendly restaurants (not tourist traps, though, as they still cater primarily to a local audience). It's right by the metro that's only a short trip to any sight. Superb staff: last but not least I want to give a shout out to a wonderful staff. Very friendly, smiling, and helpful. In our specific case, we faced a sudden train and taxi strike which could have inhibited us from ever making it to the airport to come home. The Hotel Banke staff worked with us to make sure we got proper transportation arrangements back to the airport and helped us navigate around a potential travel nightmare. For this I am truly grateful. Thanks again!!! So to sum it up: great location, nice clean rooms, and a very friendly helpful staff... My wife and I will definitely stay here next time.

Very good hotel

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: What I liked the most of the hotel was how silent it is. Also that the staff is very helpful and friendly.
Cons: The breakfast buffet is good but expensive. The rooms are a little dark
Location: It is very near Lafayette and Printemps but being central you can go easily in any direction.
My husband and me stayed for 10 days and received an excellent service.

Nice hotel in a great neighborhood

Posted Mar 29, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness and courtesy of all the staff.
Cons: Grab bars in the tub!
Location: Great tour of the Opera, shopping in the phenomenal Lafayette Galleries and many fine restaurants.
Very enjoyable. Rooms are small but very clean and the staff is superb. We asked to be moved to a room overlooking the street when we checked in and were accommodated.. The breakfast is expensive but excellent, especially the fresh fruit. We wished that there were grab bars in the tub/shower because it is quite slippery, but this seems to be the case in many European hotels. All in all the Bank is not only very nice and affordable.

good location - great reception and concierge

Posted Mar 25, 2014
Pros: location and the absolutely brilliant reception and concierge staff
Cons: Room and bathroom were a bit scruffy - felt like it needed a good old clean
Location: Gallery La Fayette on the doorstep and good access to tubes
The reception staff and concierge were fantastic. Couldnt fault them and they were the best thing about the hotel - both on the desk and on the door -- brilliant - five star plus plus! Hotel location was good. Room was a bit dusty and back of bathroom door needed a good old clean. Also there was quite a bit of dust in the wardrobe. Good shower. Generally OK We stayed on the 6th floor - very dark wood and carpet - ambience all very dark and a bit dull. Please take note: Very uncomfortable pillows!

Excellente

Posted Feb 3, 2014
Cons: The gym/spa is nothing of the sort!! But gathered that from the photos before travel so not disappointed.
Staff were attentive and well informed. Room was immaculate and spacious, with some nice touches. Easy location for 10/15 minute walk to Louvre, or 2 minute stroll to the Metro. Galleries Lafayette just up the street too. Didn't eat in the hotel, but loads of cafe and 2 supermarkets close by.

Good location

Good location, easy for station and main attractions. Nice rooms and friendly staff but I thought the extras; breakfasr, bar and restaurant were a bit expensive
