Very disappointed with the hotel. Arrived London Euston and decided to take advantage of the free shuttle service. Rang the hotel and was told when we came out of Clapham Common tube station the HSBC was just over the road and to wait there. It wasn't so rang the hotel there was a lot of confusion and several phonecalls later... More

We are not the complaining or not picking types so I don't take any pleasure in writing this review. We booked a suite at the Rafayel for a one night stay and thought that he room was a good size with a nice outlook. However, it was extremely cold which one tends to notice at the end of January. I... More

Stayed at the amazon suite in January 2016. We had a very good experience. Our room was amazing, it was clean and tidy. A large bedroom with a long area including dinning table, desk, sofa with coffee table and a large bed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Free shuttle service to and from Clapham Junction was provided, which was... More

Looks better then it is. Lovely reception area looks quite posh and it was nice to see different pieces of memorabilia from the different sporting legends that have visited. Can't help but think the service and rooms they got were a lot different to what we got. Starting with the room it was not all that. Baring in mind this... More

I had stayed at the hotel two years ago and had a first class experience. My return visit was even better. We were thrilled to receive an up grade to one of our rooms, a beautiful double bedroom with an enormous bathroom and a lounge/dining room. Immaculately clean throughout. The restaurant had the most beautiful outlook with views over the... More

Stayed at the emperor suite in January. The room was absolutely splendid. A large bedroom with a long area including sofa and a coffee table. A large flat screen tv and great lighting. A view overseeing the Thames with a great view of a helipad. The bathroom was brilliant too with a hot tub for 2 people. The room lacked... More

We were given a free upgrade at check-in, just because they had them. Which was great! The spa and service was incredible, food was incredible, we even got shuttles to the tube stations, no faults found!

I've just visited here with my boyfriend this weekend, it was bought as a Christmas present so we're both really looking forward to a nice night away. The hotel itself is lovely, we stayed in one of the Amazon rooms so quite spacious and clean. We mainly wanted to go to use the spa facilities and even double checked over... More
