Property's Green Action



WWF aims to build a future where human needs are met in harmony with nature.

It is focused around 6 ambitious goals with people at the center:
WWF's work has evolved from saving species and landscapes to addressing the larger global threats and forces that impact them. Recognizing that the problems facing our planet are increasingly more complex and urgent. The new strategy puts people at the center and organizes our work around six key areas: forests, marine, freshwater, wildlife, food and climate. By linking these six areas in an integrated approach, WWF can direct all resources to protecting vulnerable places, species and communities worldwide.

People are at the center because together we can change the trajectory of the threats to nature, and help ensure nature's ability to provide - for the sake of every living thing, including ourselves. To accomplish goals, WWF works to educate and influence people into making sustainable choices and decisions, including those who work in business and make decisions around the use of natural resources, and those who work in government and set policy that impacts nature.

Genuinely lovely experience. Smaller rooms than you’ll be used to if you’re from the states, but well appointed, wonderful staff and a great bar open till 1am.

This would be a great hotel if you are here for shopping. I loved everything about this hotel except for the small rooms. Staff, service and housekeeping was the best part of the stay.

First visit, i liked the room and its space. Personnel was professional. Bed was confortable. We could hear the metro from the room and the foot steps of the room above. I will come back.

Beautiful hotel (formerly a bank) tucked away on a corner near the Galeries Lafayette. It's close by several Metro lines and the Gare du Nord train station is only about a mile away, which makes it very convenient. The lobby is very ornate and has a bar and restaurant. The front desk was able to accommodate our early check in on short notice for our reservation. Room was clean and based on previous reviews each one has a unique design. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

My fiancé and I had visited this hotel on June of this year, we would like to show our appreciation of the services the staff had provided, and a special thanks to Larissa at the front desk for going above and beyond to help us and make everything easy and convienent. (Next Trip to Paris will definitely be this hotel)

Lovely place and I always stay here when I am paris . Stylish and contemporary. Breakfast is amazing but not included in the cost. On the Ru De Lafayte so very close to the heart of the city.

This is definitely my favourite hotel in Paris. Beautifully decorated. Incredible lobby and excellent rooms. Price is very competitive for a 5-Star in Paris. Great spot for a ramble around Parisian streets and nearby sights. I originally found the hotel through Wallpaper Magazine.

Phenomenal experience! My husband and I recently came here for our honeymoon. The staff were so pleasant, friendly, and accommodating. Clara was amazing, continued to check in on us. We even got an upgraded rate for a suite. We were very sad to leave Paris, and I think we loved it so much because of this hotel. Made our journey magical. Thanks again!

Fantastic experience! There was an error with the check in date that was my fault and they comped us for the room and gave us free drinks while we waited on our room. All of the staff were courteous, competent, and fluent in English. Highly recommend!

Great place near center. Very classy design of a building that was once a bank. The rooms were very tidy. A bit too small though. Finally the behaviour of the stuff in reception was somewhat snobbish.

Beautiful hotel, great touch of luxury in a wonderful area. Really accessible to all of the famous tourist attractions without being too 'in amongst it'. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone, particularly couples

I had a wonderful stay with an excellent room, hands down the most comfortable room I've had in Paris, and I've been here numerous times for work. The staff have been nothing but exceptional, and the breakfasts offer an excellent selection and are delicious. My one caveat, not nuts about the dinner room service options. The service was quick, no points away from the staff, but the options were slim and the food just didn't do much for me. If you have the choice, go out, there are great restaurants right around the corner.

The staff was helpful and polite. The staff went above and beyond to help us settle in. The restaurant was understaffed, but the food was tasty. The doormen were super helpful, attentive and polite.

Beautiful hotel, with the aesthetic of a former bank, complete with a circular skylight in the lobby, a great restaurant and bar. The rooms are cozy, with funky wall stencils, satellite TV and WiFi throughout the building. The staff is very competent and accommodating. Overall it's a great hotel, in a great location - super easy to walk to the Louvre or the Opera, and chic areas of the ninth arrondissement.

Beautiful hotel with historical structure that attracts you in first instance. Great service with lovely crew who really makes your journey like you are at home. I'd recommend this place as it's close to Paris attractions with a short trip and for those who loves shopping galeries lafayette is just a few steps away.

+ Beautiful rooms, great position, friendly staff - breakfast was one of the best I've had anywhere in the world. - Corridors were so dark it was hard to navigate to your room. Shower was a trickle. Bed was hard = Would definitely visit again (if just for the breakfast)!

Great place. But dont take the cheaper top floor rooms. The office building next door can look straight at you while showering

I can't say enough how wonderful the staff at this hotel was. They were so helpful and thoughtful, and because of them I would stay at a Derby Hotel again. They helped with restaurant reservations, cabs, and answered every question I had. The rooms were a bit small, but, as I understand, rooms in general are not like U.S . rooms. We had breakfast every morning which was wonderful and I would definitely recommend signing up for it. For my daughter's birthday, they sent up a delicious cake beautifully decorated with raspberries and white chocolate and just did it as a courtesy. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

My wife and I were in Paris for our first time. If this Hotel could have done a better job, I cannot see where. The front desk staff was just awesome! They took the extra step in our opinion to help an American couple in Paris have a great stay. The next time, and I am sure there will be we will stay at the Hotel Banke
