Welcome to De Banville
Delightfully Parisian, the hotel has the elegance of inherited style and the punch of ultra-modern fittings; the simple stone corridors and cherry-red, brass-knobbed doors are beautifully floor lit. Guests feel welcomed into a private house where gilt-edged old paintings dominate the gracious salon with its buffed grand piano (the owner sings on Tuesday nights). The design is wondrous and enchanting. The charm of this mansion is in the decoration of the rooms, each being unique. The air-conditioned hotel was built in 1927 and offers 38 guest rooms. There is a lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out services, a hotel safe, cloakroom, lift access and a cafÃ©. Guests may also take advantage of the WLAN Internet access, room and laundry services and the bicycle hire service on offer.
The Boulevard Berthier stretches along public gardens and squares right in the heart of the Ternes area. The location can be enjoyed for either business or leisure with restaurants, shows and its close proximity to Champs ElysÃ©es, the Palais des CongrÃ¨s Porte Maillot and La Defense, all within a ten-minute walk of the hotel. L'espace Champerret (a fair centre) is also very close. The hotel is located right at Gare du Nord train station and the bus station is around 100 m away. Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports are located some 30 km from the hotel, while Paris Beauvais TillÃ© Airport is around 75 km away.
The rooms, all in a unique style and setting, are equal in size and comfort and each offers a pleasant change of atmosphere while maintaining a charming privacy. The en suite bathrooms are fitted with a shower/bathtub and hairdryer, while the bedrooms have either a double or king-size bed. In-room amenities include a direct dial telephone, satellite/cable TV, radio and Internet access. Furthermore, a safe, minibar, ironing set and a balcony or terrace are provided. The air conditioning and heating units are individually regulated.
On Tuesday evenings the lobby becomes a focal point with lovely music and a warm atmosphere around the grand piano and the fireplace. A massage service is also available at the hotel.
A continental breakfast buffet is served. Lunch and dinner are served Ã la carte.
American Express, Diners Club, JCB, MasterCard and VISA are accepted.
