My husband and I spent a wonderful week at Hotel Raphael in April 2015. The service was outstanding and the Concierge was even able to get us into Epicure for dinner one evening. The terrace bar opened a few days early and we were able to have a lovely evening cocktail from the nicest spot in all of Paris. You... More

Spectacular. Amazing location, unbelievable assistance through the concierge. The room was glorious.... huge, with separate dressing room. The rooftop deck with the most amazing view you've ever seen. Also a great breakfast buffet.

We stayed at the Raphael as part of a package to see the Tour De France, probably wouldn't have picked it normally as we are not usually keen on these old style hotels as they can be a bit stuffy. But not in this case, as others have said this hotel has a smaller feel to it and the staff... More

My wife and I visited the Hotel Raphael for three nights in April with our three sons (aged 15, 13, and 11) and as I was looking for centrally located hotel rooms in Paris it appeared that I'd have to settle for a hotel room with fairly small rooms... but then I found the Hotel Raphael. First of all, as... More

Beautiful old hotel, superbly located 2 mins South of the Arc de Triomphe. Great rooms, great facilities, great place to stay (if you can afford it), really friendly staff. And a great roof terrace to capture the views all round the Paris skyline. It would be great if they could provide a proper fridge and a kettle so you can... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a short break to Paris staying at Hôtel Raphael for my birthday. Our room had a spacious balcony with a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower which made breakfasts such an enjoyable experience. The hotel staff were attentive and helpful, but not intrusive. Overall, a fantastic and unfogettable experience. Thank you, the Hotel Rafael team.

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel just two blocks from the Champs Elysees. It is true that the location of this hotel is wonderful, but the main reason to stay here is to experience the ambiance and beauty of the hotel itself. This is a five star classic hotel, but there is nothing stuffy about it. Families are made to... More
