This hotel is great for a stay in London. Price is really good, and the beds are comfortable. We've stayed here twice now and always have a great welcome from friendly staff. Valet parking of your car for £15 overnight is quite good compared to the car parking prices of London. There are however, some downsides. The hotel is located... More

A romantic weekend in London. Had one of the "Thames rooms" overlooking the River..floor to ceiling windows (note that they are not one way windows!) and a large room/suite. Didn't use the restaurant so can't comment on that, but room was very good and location works well..10min walk to tube then easy connections into Central London.

Booked this hotel for an anniversary night in town last week. Room was superb, and they even put a little card and some chocolates out for our anniversary which was a nice touch! Showers were a bit complicated to use - despite clear instructions i still managed to get a full frontal spray of ice cold water! Spa was pretty... More

Ibofyen go for dinner at Rafayel. The menu is very well diversified and offers a good selection of dishes and "styles". I generally have scallops as a starter, the angus steak as a main and apple tarte as a dessert. Scallops are good but i think that the steak and the apple tarte deserve special attention. These two dishes are... More

Came here for a nice relaxing spa weekend and paid extra for the bathtub and views. When we arrived the reception staff looked at us standing for 10mins with our bags and said "Are you checking in!?" I don't know why else someone would come in with bags standing in the lobby! Went to our room and it was on... More

We have spent three days at Rafayel hotel and loved it. Spacious rooms, nice restaurant with view on the Themes. It's not too far to walk to the city centre (of course, if you are fit enough). Plus you can use a swimming pool, steam room, sauna and gym. SO I can highly recommend it. Thanks a lot for your... More

I've stayed here now many times and every time the rooms have been spacious, clean and comfortable. The restaurant and spa facilities are great, especially the afternoon tea. The hotel has easy access to Uber and buses into central London. When it's sunny, it's great to have a drink in their outside terrace which looks onto the river. Overall, I'm... More

A reunion of old friends was made extra special by a stay at the Rafael hotel. We had a fantastic time with a beautiful meal in the restaurant and the accommodation was the best. The staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. We certainly will be back for our next reunion. Thanks a million 😉

We have just returned from a night and a spa day at the Rafayel on the left bank. We had the best time. The room was beautifully decorated, clean and had the most stunning view of London.
