From its beginnings as a royal palace, and its subsequent transformation into the headquarters of an international bank, the 5* Banke Hotel treasures more than three centuries of stories and great secrets within its walls.
Hortense de Beauharnais is historically the most famous guest of the Hotel Banke. Born in 1783, she married Luis Bonaparte and became Queen of the Netherlands in 1806. Mother of Napoleon III, she lived for several years in her Parisian palace.
The palace was demolished in 1899 to make way for Pillet-Will Street and to erect the current building.
The Hortensia Diamond, named after her, can be visited, along with the Crown Jewels of France, at the Louvre Museum.
Gastronomy and history
The spectacular facade of the Banke Hotel, awarded the city's Gold Medal in 1908, dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. It was one of the first buildings to be built on Pillet-Will Street, the work of the architects Paul Friesé and Cassien Bernard.
The wide space of the hall, crowned by an impressive glass cupola, frames the vast floor mosaic and the old counters of the bank, behind which can be found the Josefin Restaurant.
THE FLAVORS OF THE OPERA
Appetizers and select cocktails to enjoy the flavor of the Paris Opera as never before.
Carmen's passion, Aida's strength, Fidelio's fidelity or the anguish of Romeo and Juliet are just some of the emotions of the opera that our expert cocktail makers express conjure up to be expressed in each glass and each sip.
A symphony of flavours and textures in a unique environment.
