The Raphael has a total of 83 rooms (52 rooms and 38 suites) with individual thermostat control air-conditioning. The rooms all have flat-screen televisions with a wide range of channels (CNN, Skynews, Sat 1, BBC World, Rai Uno, TVE, Euro Sport, NHK/JSTV, DUBAI, Aljazeera, Saoudi One, Al Arabia, Canal+, Cartoon Network, Disney, CNBC, TRT, MBC, DWTV, Bloomberg). The bathrooms all have toiletries by the very French luxurious brand, Fragonard. Despite being anchored in French history, the Raphael moves forward with the times with the latest technology including DVD players (must be asked for at reception and are free), some bathrooms have televisions, baths double up as a Jacuzzi, remote controlled facilities are inbuilt (this must be mentioned as a requirement when booking as not all rooms have the sale facilities). The room directory is translated into English, Japanese and Russian. Some bathrooms are more spectacular than others - some boast stunning 1900s stained glass ceilings. The rooms styles are wide-ranging with a good number having recently been done up in beautiful contemporary fabrics, the colours always remaining soft. The carpets create an urge to dig in freshly-pedicured toes... The hotel has various suites, but for something a little different, 106m² Penthouse Suite, with its green panels of 18th century paintings is truly stunning. Spread over three floors, it has its own access to the roof terrace. The advantage of many rooms here, is that they can communicate to make one large suite, like the State Suite for example. For those midnight snacks, room service is open around the clock (hot dishes served till 10pm). As room prices vary, the hotel must be contacted for a quote. The Raphael's rooms would appeal to a guest looking for a luxury, classic and elegant authentic French hotel. Check-in: 3pm/check-out: 12pm.
