While this hotel may never end up on a Rick Steves list of Paris hotels, it's strongly recommended for business and leisure travelers seeking centrally located high-end accommodations.

Like many Paris luxury hotels, the Raphael features an in-house five-star restaurant, which offers delectable French and continental European cuisine prepared by some of the city's most celebrated culinary masters. Guests can also lounge on the "Les Jardins Plein Ciel" terrace, which offers painterly vistas of the Parisian rooftops, or relax in the informal Bar Anglais or 17 Lounge.
Combining the attentive service and intimacy of boutique hotels in Paris with the excitement and glamour of a full-service luxury villa, the Raphael has rightfully taken a lofty billing among luxury hotels in Paris.
