Lovely hotel in a perfect location

Posted 03-Oct-2017
We had a wonderful stay at the Banke hotel for my fiancee's birthday. The staff were very welcoming and helped in every way possible to make this a special event. The hotel is all we hoped and expected with a lovely room and bathroom. We didn't use many of the facilities as we were out in the city most of the time but as the hotel was so conveniently located it was easy to get to the main attractions, mainly on foot. With it so central too we were surprised with how nice and peaceful the hotel was with little traffic noise even though it is so central to the city. Thank you to all at the Banke hotel for a wonderful weekend stay.

Five days in Paris

Posted 01-Sep-2017
The hotel is beautiful, the staff is incredibly responsive and the central location makes getting around quite easy. The only negative is the overpowering scent of insence in the lobby. It is STRONG. We could smell it the minute we left our 2nd floor room until we exited the hotel. Not once, everyday. I'm not particularly sensitive to smell but if you are, the experience may not be for you.

Excellent hotel at the heart of Paris

Posted 30-Aug-2017
Pros: The atmosphere and individuality
Location: Close to LeFayette and the Louvre
Firstly the hotel staff were extremely helpful and spoke very good English. There were Eastern incents burning so a nice aroma was in the air. The rooms were dimmy and had a romantic atmosphere to it. Being so close to Galleries LeFayette, the location is unbeatable. The flight hotel for £400 pp for 5 days, CRAZY!

Honeymooner's Perfection in Paris

Posted 29-Aug-2017
Thank you so much to Clara and the rest of the hotel staff for making our honeymoon special! From the moment we came to Hotel Banke we were treated graciously. We received an upgraded room and a special welcome for our honeymoon. Clara was begone resourceful throughout our stay and continued to check in on us. The hotel was very clean, and we loved the smell of the incense in the hallways. Also, very very quiet, safe, and close to metro. Gorgeous rooms and lobby. Weekend staff was not as friendly, but all spoke English to a degree. When we're back in Paris, we'll definitely stay here! Highly recommend.

A very welcoming hotel

Posted 28-Aug-2017
This was my first visit to Paris and the hotel couldn't do enough to make my stay more pleasant. From the moment I walked in the front door to my leaving at 6:15 in the morning they were so accommodating. I was there for one week and they helped me plan every event from tickets to the Eiffel Tower, a skip the line ticket to the Louvre, and suggestion of places to eat. I will return to Paris again and I will definitely stay at the Hotel Banke! Thanks.

Such a Lovely Welcome

Posted 22-Aug-2017
We were immediately welcomed by a lovely smiling doorman who took our bags and escorted us in to reception. Reception checked us in and then the concierge showed us to our room and recommend a near by restaurant for dinner which was lovely. Our room clean and comfortable with air conditioning. Overall it's the friendly staff that make this hotel a Great experience. Ps being 3 mins walk to the nearer metro was a plus!!

Excellent Hotel Experience!!

Posted 07-Aug-2017
Cons: The only issue around the area was parking. There is a parking garage very close and it would be great if the hotel offered valet parking.
The entire stay was fantastic and we wish we could have stayed longer than three nights. On our next trip to Paris we will surely be visiting Hotel Banke again. Everything from the greeting at the door to the welcoming staff at the front desk was fantastic. The hotel was architecturally beautiful and the rooms were spacious and well appointed. The staff was very helpful in answering all of our questions about the city and pointing us in the right direction from local boulangeries and patisseries to getting around the city for tours. Hotel Banke was well worth the expense and made the Paris experience the best that it could have been. All around great experience with no complaints!
