We stayed at Hotel Raphael for a week during April. The hotel has a wonderful location close to the Arch d' Triomphe and Champs élysées! We were able to walk everywhere-including some wonderful restaurants. The overall service was great - the concierge staff was very helpful. Our room and bathroom was very large and comfortable - the only complaint we... More

An old Parisian beauty that needs a refreshment. I stayed a few days and the hotel is old style nice. However the rooms are in need of refreshment. The carpet in my room was stained; internet just does not work. You barely get a signal everywhere in the hotel and I could barely check my email. So if you are... More

Dinner in this beautifully restored hotel was an absolute joy. Having experienced bad to appalling service at various restaurants in Paris we had our faith rescued by the welcoming service from Marie Aude and the dining team. Superb cocktails, exquisite salads and top drawer entrees made our evening one of the best ever!

If you are seeking an elegant quietly sophisticated Hotel in the centre of Paris look no further than this venue. This Hotel located five minutes from the Arc De Triomphe is perhaps one of the most delightful Hotels that this great city offers. Beautifully appointed rooms and suites provide lovely accommodation. The public rooms are tasteful and more than comfortable.... More

I booked a junior suite. It was more of a suite! It had an entry, large living room with two large windows, a beautiful bedroom with two large closets, and a spacious bathroom. It was perfect! The staff were great too! I will definitely stay there in the future.

Great hotel offering style, pleasant service, luxury and interesting food. Enjoy every minute of our stay and was a great base for exploring Paris. The bar staff were exceptionally courtious and great at making cocktails, well worth spending some time there later on at night.

We stayed at the Raphael with some friends who have regular timeshare there. We were blown away by the elegance , cleanliness and wonderful location. Th helpful staff recommended nearby restaurants - and the hotel is in a wonderful and interesting neighborhood, near the Arc de triumph and the Elysée, the home of the French president.
