Set a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe, hotel Raphael is a haven of peace giving onto Avenue Kléber. Loved by every “big names” if this world, hotel Raphael and its very sophisticated English bar is a must for hedonists. Set on the last floor of the resort, the terrace offers panoramic views of Paris, the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower! Welcome to cloud nine!

Hotel Raphael opened in 1925 at the instigation of Leonard Tauber. The founder wanted to keep the place’s intimate and private atmosphere and only included a limited number of bedrooms. Today, the family group managed by Véronique Valcke keeps on the tradition and the general spirit of the hotel.

The lobby is a sublime gallery, delicately decorated and enabling you to go to the English bar. A very cozy and warm atmosphere comes from the bar with the soft light and preponderance of red. Raphael elegant décor, comfortable bench seats and garnet-colored velvet armchairs give an unparalleled charm to the place. As for drinks, barman chef Christian Gomez will brilliantly meet all your needs in terms of cocktails.

For instance, you can enjoy an exceptional “mojito”, a “bloody mary” dear to French actor Patrick Timsit.
