The Raphael is an iconic property that is the embodiment of French hospitality. Located in the heart of the 16th arrondissement, the hotel was constructed in the Golden Twenties era and designed by architect André Rousselot. Decorated in the Art Deco style of architecture, it was named as a tribute to the painter Raphael and the fine arts.

Guests can settle into the red velvet chairs at the English Bar as they unwind after a stroll at the Champs-Élysées. If there is one thing, the Raphael is known for, it is the quintessential French gastronomic legacy.

A perfect pit stop in Paris, this incredible hotel is a great blend of traditional French fanfare combined with the necessary modern conveniences that a global citizen needs.
