Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel de Banville
est Magnifique!from Silent Crow
First, a couple of quick notes: 1. This is a three star hotel, not two (as this site suggests), and were it not for its size it would be four. 2. The 17th district is not for everyone (thank God). You'll have to walk an extra 15 minutes if you feel compelled to shop in the GAP on the Champs Elysees.
Last week, my wife and I took a brief rendezvous to stay in our very favorite room in Paris... at the Hotel de Banville. The staff is incredibly helpful and courteous. The neighborhood is absolutely spectacular, and the decor is flawless. Perfect.
It is not a typical tourist hotel. The patrons are upscale business people from all over the world, and the predominant language spoken in the lobby is ALWAYS French (though the staff will speak fluently in a myriad of languages without any attitude). This is the real Paris, folks. Classy, chic and supremely alluring. I recommend de Banville to any and all that may appreciate service, authenticity and a romantic hideaway in the most beautiful city in the world.
What a gem!from SRewse
The only down side to our stay was that in common with a lot of hotels one could hear the TV on in the room next door, not so good at 7am, but overall a highly recommended hotel and good value for money, especially if you book using a an agent we found on the internet who got us a discount of about 10% and included breakfast.
The Charming Hotel de Banvillefrom mandygpauley
Should have been better...from dhdruyff
What keeps me from recommending it, or at least from re-visiting, is that the hotel is currently undergoing MAJOR renovations that we were never told about, and I do mean major. I completely understand and applaud updating a property, but DO tell your guests in advance, and offer some discount. Paying full rate and waking each day of your long-dreamed-of vacation to scaffolding and loud drilling - literally right on the other side of your walls - is simply not right. Dust and tarps were everywhere. We experienced bouts of no water, no heat, and no electricity during our stay. Simply let guests know in advance so they can make the choice in time whether to stay or not, and if they do opt to stay, don't charge full rates.
If I had to do it again, I would not stay here. I'm sure when the work is done it will be quite lovely, but the experience and the way it was handled left me with a bad taste.
Beautiful view of Eiffel Tower from balcony!from BBJones

Totally fab!from TravelWarrior
Fantastic Service, Location and Roomsfrom Jamesr74
This hotel is very clean and the walk up the stairs to your room is wonderfull, due to the huge mirrors, fantastic lighting and marble effect walls. The entrance to the hotel is small but very inviting and the grand piano in the reception is fantastic.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficent and they can even arrange for you to be collected at the airport by a chauffer for just a little more expensive than taking a taxi.
Dont waste your time by booking and staying in one of the major hotel chains that have sites within paris, go independent for better customer service. We cant wait to go back and stay there soon.
A Special Placefrom janeymac
We got up too late to go to the Champs Elysee to watch the parade, so saw it on TV, and had a birds eye view from the Appartement de Marie (on the top floor) of the planes flying by. Then I luxuriated in the bath, whilst being able to see the Eiffel Tower - pure delightful decadence!
A sweet and delightful romantic Parisian pied-a-terre - a real home from home - we loved it, every minute.
A wonderful night!from strass
Our room was on the seventh floor, and to our delight our view of city rooftops and trees included the top of the Eiffel Tower. The room itself was spacious, featuring a king-size bed, small loveseat, writing desk, large windows, and a TV. The good-sized bathroom included double sinks. Everything was immaculate.
The concierge was helpful and professional, and the hotel itself is beautifully decorated in a classy, modern, unique style--the lobby and hallways are just gorgeous. Overall it was a wonderful stay, and we hope to return someday.
Top Local Tips for Paris
Pick Pockets Put folded tissues in you outer zips or pockets, this way when it happens they feel they are taking something and don't keep on trying. Only later do they find their mistake when they look at it out of your site...
Dinner Cruise I booked a Dinner Cruise through Eurostar when I booked the train tickets and it was onboard one of the Bateaux Parisien boats. I imagine you would be able to book this direct with the company on your arrival in Paris - they operate from the piers just below the Eiffel Tower so very easy location to find! It was a superb evening with complimentary wine throughout, a fantastically cooked 3-course meal and beautiful tunes to accompany the fabulous sights as we cruised up and down the Seine.
Get to grips with the metro If you make it your mission to get to grips with the metro (and it isn't that hard) you will save yourself a tonne in money. Taxis are plentiful but some drivers aren't too fluent in English and it is sometimes hard to explain where you want to go. We got to grips with the metro the first day we were there (in fact we used it to get to the hotel) and its a great transport system they have over there. They come on time, frequently and all stations are clearly signposted.
