Paris is home to more than 1500 hotels. Among them, only a few dozen have 5 stars. Even fewer are those that contribute to the city's reputation and influence in France and abroad. The Raphael is one of these 5-star hotels.
The Raphael Hotel will soon be a century old. It is in fact in 1925 that the establishment was built, avenue Kléber, in the 16th district of Paris. Since then, the Raphael has been offering its clients top-of-the-line services worthy of the best 5-star hotels. And even more... Thus, the 47 rooms of the establishment are all furnished and decorated in the Louis XV-Louis XVI style. The furniture, mirrors and candlesticks are of the period, while today's technologies are of course available, whether it be wifi or satellite television. Four categories of double rooms are available to guests: Classic, Superior, Deluxe and Deluxe Eiffel Tower. In addition, there are 36 suites, also for two people, classified as Junior Suite, Duplex Eiffel Tower with terrace, Prestige or Arc de Triomphe Terrace. The Presidential Suite, measuring 100 m2, can accommodate 4 people.
In addition to the comfort and luxury of its accommodations, the Raphael, a major Parisian hotel, offers gastronomic restaurants and friendly bars.
With its impressive ceiling space, rich moldings and woodwork, comfortable seats and benches, refined and classic decor, and vast windows that let in light in all seasons, the gastronomic restaurant is on a par with the great 5-star Parisian hotels. In the kitchen, the Spanish-born chef Francisco Merino prepares the dishes and menus. He is assisted by Romain Marti, a young pastry chef who combines mastery of the great classics with creativity.
These two chefs also prepare the lunches and dinners served at La Terrasse, the restaurant on the top floor of the hotel, open from May to September. During the good weather, the roof terrace is also home to Champagne, a rooftop bar where you can also have a quick and very good lunch.
Finally, among the most prestigious services that the Raphael Hotel offers its guests is the panoramic view of Paris. Having lunch or a drink above the city, facing the Eiffel Tower, is indeed a rare pleasure that few can offer.
