We stayed only one night, and it was fantastic. Service was top notch from the moment we arrived. Because we were short on time, we didn't experience everything in the hotel, but what we did we loved. The lobby was beautiful. Our room wasn't big (621), but was CHARMING, had lots of privacy, and even though it was on a... More

I had always wanted to experience this iconic Parisian jem and stayed alone for a quick overnight business trip. The room (112) was so tired and tiny, so I was glad that my husband decided not to come along. Noise from garbage trucks at 5 am was horrible and room service breakfast unmemmorble - espcially the not so fresh carrot... More

This is a medium-sized hotel on a beautiful boulevard - the boulevard Raphael - leading down from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Lovely entrance, very good concierge, overwhelmingly opulent public rooms. The bar is famous .... Gainsbourg held court there - I saw him once, surrounded by girls, smoking his Gauloises incessantly, and understood his charisma. Many stars, of... More

Raphael Hotel in Paris is an hotel that hasn't done anything to modernize its style or decoration. It looks still exactly like beginning of the 20th century,but without having lost anything of its luxurious,but also warm and friendly atmosphere-one feels like having entered a time capsule filled with tranquility and non-pretentious luxury. The rooms are very comfortable, with walk -in... More

I like the location of the hotel. It was close to most of the famous landmarks. The room was so specious and comfortable. However, we have encountered a bad incident. On the last night, when we checked out, I have forgotten a brand bew pairs of shoes and a Coco Chanel bottle of perfume in room 205. We have reported... More

Deciding on a hotel for our Paris trip the last few days (Jan 31-Feb 2, 2015) was not an easy decision. I was torn between several choices and none tripped my "This is the place" button for some reason. A photographer friend in London mentioned that he had done a photo shoot at The Raphael and I should stay there... More

Last month, I have stayed at the Raphael, for the first time and enjoyed it very much. Very good room and bathroom, quiet, good concierge and very friendly staff. My only concern was the breakfast service. It ends at 10:30 and promply at 10:30 they remove all the trays from the buffet. If you get there, say, at 10:15 or... More

You might think this is a pricy hotel but you can't get this kind of opulence and large rooms in the newer hotels without likely paying quadruple the rate. Service is top notch, history is deep (it was converted from a mansion into a luxury hotel in 1925) and the location is in the heart of Paris (near to the... More

Staying in Champs-Elysees

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
