This is a 5 stars hotel not a 5 stars luxury hotel. so if you want something more flashy you have the newly opened peninsula around the corner with its very swanky style. BUT....we stayed in a suite overlooking arc du triomphe. the terrace was impressive being around the whole room. the room was stylish and bright. the funny thing... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Raphael. The price and size of the room sets it apart from other hotels in Paris. As most of us will not be accustomed to the size issue in Paris this hotel does The location was great! The only down side was the drinks at the bar. I order 4 drinks total and the... More

We have been in Paris so many times that I cannot count them, staying in different areas of the city and different types of hotel (budget to luxury) This time it was my husband's birthday and we wanted something special: we got it. Location is perfect to reach any place in town, by walking (as we mostly do) or by... More

We stayed here as guests of friends who own a timeshare. The hotel is steps away from the Arc de Triomphe and the Rue de la Paix. The Raphael is a very deluxe hotel with fantastic service.

For our first day in Paris, after some sight seeing, we stopped by the rooftop bar in Hotel Raphael This bar was recommended by our hotel front desk and I must say I'm very happy that we did.

We've been staying here for decades and it's never disappointed. The staff are lovely, the hotel has a charm that so many try too hard to achieve and miss by miles. It could be considered old-fashioned, but in a cosy, turn-of- the (last) century way. The red bar is dangerous if you have anything else to do, as it's just... More

I've been to many hotels and I must say the service of the staff at Hotel Raphael was top notch, and some of the best I've experienced. Four Season's calibre with a more personal touch.

Location cant be better which other Hotel has rooms with views to Eiffel Tower and Arc de triomphe at the same time ? It displays the classical "old paris". and yes some people can call it stuffy, but they can go to some stel-and marble industrial sleeping-places.

The best of Raphael Hotel is the bar at the rooftop. But I guess you do not need to be a guest to go there. Rooms are spacious, particularly in a city like Paris. Decoration is a bit over to my taste and not very consistent. Breakfast was very good. Internet worked partially inside the room. I had to try... More

Elegant but slightly dusty. Very polity but not friendly. Good size rooms. You get chocolates on the pillow only the first night. Breakfast overpriced, limited buffet selection. The nicest feature is the roof top terrace, however most of the time closed (on sunny days and warm evenings!). They need to take into account that a Peninsula hotel is opening next... More
