I have visited this hotel several times and had always liked it... However as the years go by, the hotel has not changed at all - it seems that they only perform indispensable maintenance as the everything seems to be VERY OLD - upholstery in rooms and restaurant, curtains, you name it... There has been a change in staff (maybe... More

A stone throw away from the Champs Elysée and the Arc de Triomphe, this hotel reflects excellent management practice. The staff is efficient, calm and professional, the rooms are clean and nicely decorated and the restaurant is of very good quality. Go there without any hesitation!

Having retired from teaching (33 yrs.), my friend & I decided to splurge and stay at Hotel Raphael, near the Arch of Triumph. Considered the best hotel in Paris by Ingrid Bergman, there is a view of the Eiffel Tower from the 7th floor roof terrace. An original William Turner painting hangs next to the registration desk. We found the... More

We did not sleep in the hotel however, we had drinks in their rooftop bar. The hotel looks really chic and elegant. The terrace of the bar has a wonderful view on the Eiffel Tower.

Without asking we were upgraded to a deluxe room which was beautiful. Big bedroom with a big bathroom. Hotel staff was excellent and very helpful, especially the concierge! Walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, arc and Champs! We did not eat at the hotel but did enjoy the roof top bar with beatific views of Paris!!

This hotel was billed as a five-star luxury hotel but was very disappointing. The rooms had very inadequate air conditioning and were hot throughout the stay. The turn-down service was minimal and the maid staff was adequate. I would not stay there again.

We stayed here for a mix of business and tourism. We needed a hotel with pretty good wheelchair access, at least a lift and wide corridors. And because I'm very ill and weak we needed to be able to eat in the rooms, and have facilities like concierge and an on-site restaurant. I also needed to be able to rest... More

Start to finish a great weekend, the location - 5 min from Arc de Triumph, 10 min stroll from the Trocadero is pretty much perfect.
