"A beautiful hotel, for a modern Paris experience."
Set in an absolutely beautiful building in a brilliant location, this hotel is stylish and upmarket without trying too hard. From the moment we arrived, we found the staff both friendly and extremely professional, without being at all aloof (as is sometimes the case with 'luxury' hotels)... they made us feel very welcome, speaking brilliant English too.
Our 'Superior' room was quite small, but this is Paris after all, and the limited space was used well and the room felt comfortable and modern. It seemed that every time we returned, our room had been cleaned for us!
The hotel's bar is outstandingly well stocked, and makes a perfect place to unwind if you don't feel like venturing out to the streets. Unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked when we wanted to visit, so we didn't have a chance to try that, but I can confirm that room service was fantastic – in fact the menu undersold it, the burger was one of the best I've had and easily worth the money!
Of course, this isn't the cheapest hotel in Paris, but nor did it feel overpriced for the experience. As a surprise trip for my girlfriend, Hotel Banke provided the perfect foundation for a wonderful trip, and I hope to return one day.
This hotel is ideally situated for sightseeing and shopping. Although the rooms are quite small, as previous reviewers have said, it is all you need for a city break.
Would recommend doing the city tour by Segway - it was such fun and the guide really knowledgeable.
Beautiful hotel walking distance from the Moulin rouge,the metro,and fabulous restaurants and bars.
The afternoon tea and free wine are a nice touch.
The staff are excellent and make sure you feel at home.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and the beds ensure a great nights sleep.
Kipling memorabilia and nickknacks make for an interesting stay.
We have stayed before and plan to return in February!(it's my birthday treat)

The location of the Hotel is good, near La Fayette et Le Printemps, from the other side Grands boulevards et Boulevard Haussman, but what I did not like is the light in the Hotel, so lumiere"" Tamise"", it comes though the decoration concept. All in all, it was goog.
