The Champs-Élysées is reputed to be the most beautiful avenue in the world. And indeed, this magnificent artery, its counter-alleys, the gardens that line it on the Place de la Concorde side and the luxury stores on the Arc de Triomphe side make the Champs-Élysées one of the tourist hotspots of Paris, itself the most visited city on every continent. Staying close to the Champs-Élysées is a rare opportunity, and one offered by Le Raphael, a 5-star hotel in Paris Champs-Élysées.
Located on Avenue Kléber, the Raphael hotel is within easy reach of Place de l'Étoile and the Champs-Élysées. Avenue Kléber is one of a dozen streets and avenues that form the famous star around the Arc de Triomphe. A particularly privileged location, especially as the other end of Avenue Kléber leads to the Trocadéro, which itself faces the Eiffel Tower. This tower, perhaps the most famous in the world, is one of the most beautiful views that the Raphael Hotel offers its guests. But it's not the only one. From the hotel's windows, and especially from the terrace on the top floor, you can contemplate the whole of Paris, starting with the nearby Arc de Triomphe, and even further afield, the Sacré-Coeur basilica. This 5-star hotel in Paris Champs-Élysées boasts one of the finest roof terraces in the French capital.
When the weather's nice, you can lunch and dine at La Terrasse, the 7th-floor restaurant, or enjoy a drink at Champagne, one of Paris's most famous rooftop bars. When the weather doesn't permit, the restaurant and bar on the top floor are open from April to September, when Hotel Raphael welcomes guests to its main restaurant, home of chef Francisco Merino, and its English bar.
Hotel Rap hael offers 83 rooms and suites on seven floors. The simplest rooms measure 25 m2, the largest, the Presidential Suite, 100 m2. All pay tribute to French history and heritage. The furniture in the rooms and suites, in the Louis XV-Louis XVI style, is indeed period, while the colors, fabrics and woodwork invite you to travel back in time.
