Hôtel Banke Review
In a stately bank building dating from the early 20th century, this interesting hotel lies in the heart of the Opera district, which is full of shops and theaters. The imposing domed lobby hosts an eclectic restaurant and tapas bar on either side, while the rooms are more elegant and tasteful. Each one has parquet floors, custom furniture, leather weave headboards, and marble or green mosaic tiles in the bathrooms. Opt for the courtyard-facing rooms for less street noise. The Spanish-owned hotel doubles as a museum, with the owner's jewelry collection on display on each floor.
