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. The staff went out of your way to make sure you all your needs were taken care of, and prompt to respond to any request.... More

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. Service could be called reserved, but in my view this is exeactly the... More

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

This is a beautiful, typically Parisian hotel. We wanted to feel like we were staying in Paris and we also wanted a good value for our money. It was both and more. The views from the rooftop of Hotel Rafael of the Eiffel Tower are unbelievable. The breakfast was also very nice. Our room was very large with big windows,... More

May 2014 was our 3rd stay at the Raphael. We like the historical ambiance of the hotel and its rooms. We particularly like the Junior Suites. Gracie likes the fact that there is lots of storage and drawers. Others have commented on the rooftop garden and its views, which are great. Because we travel in shoulder seasons, the rooftop restaurant... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this fine hotel. Yes the rooms are perhaps a little more dated and old worldly than some of the other nearby hotels but what the hotel lacks in modern amenities it makes up for in charm. The customer service was great and I believe the location is excellent. With the Kleber metro stop literally... More
