What’s Hot in Paris: The Hotel Banke Opens Its Doors

March 27, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Banke Hotel, Paris

We can hardly wait to check out the new Hotel Banke, billed as "an exciting blend of the historic and the avant-garde in Paris' 9th arrondissement." Housed in the former headquarters of CCF Bank (a classic Belle Époque building), the designer hotel is located in the Opéra area on Rue La Fayette-- next to Boulevard Haussmann and all the stellar shopping at the grands magasins, and a short walk from the magnificent Place Vendôme and Rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The Banke has 93 rooms, some with panoramic views of Sacré Cœur. For a small boutique hotel, the facilities seem expansive: two restaurants (one of which is gastronomic), a night club, a spa zone and gym, and art collection displayed on every floor of the building, showcasing art from all cultures and historic periods.

Hotel BankePart of the Derby Hotels Collection, the Hotel Banke has been beautifully restored for its new life as an urban resort. Fully soundproofed, guest rooms are outfitted with all the latest technology: LCD television with 250 satellite channels, wifi, and individual air-conditioning and temp controls. Guests can take advantage of 24-hour room service, late breakfast served until 1 p.m. in the bar, and limo service around town. Plus, The Banke is pet-friendly.
