We stayed here for 4 days recently and were very impressed. The location is superb, easy walking distance to Monmartre, the Louvre, Seine and Tuileries Gardens, a block from Galeries Lafette and the Opera Garnier. Particularly convenient if you are only in Paris for a few days and don't want to spend them on the Metro travelling to the sights....

I was booked into the Banke due to a problem at my usual hotel in Paris. Once I got over the disappointment of having to take a taxi at 11pm to get from St Germain to Opera, the Banke staff more than made it up. This is an incredible building (a bank as the name says), very nicely redone and...

I could not have been more pleased with my 11-day stay at the Hôtel Banke. Located in what was once the posh headquarters if a major bank, this hotel was inaugurated in 2008.

Located in the heart of the Paris fashion district, near the Paris Opera House, the Hotel Banke is a beautiful full service retreat from the bustle of Paris. The staff is both gracious and accommodating. It is a wonderful hotel.

We came here in January this year for my boyfriend's birthday and had a lovely time. The hotel is quirky and funky and has a very dramatic entrance. The location is brilliant - very central to absolutely everything. We booked the second size up (exec?) of room, and it was pretty small, but so are all rooms in Paris and...

Just returned from a long weekend at Hotel Banke - what a great place - funky decor, lovely smell of incense burning when you walk in and a very striking lobby/bar area.

I always look at what others have said before writing reviews, and this place seems to wow most people. I felt it was ok, but struggle to be so excited. The reception area is quite impressive, but the red, gold and black decor, along with the extremely subtle lighting make for a very dark overall impression. My room (inward facing,...

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.
