We always stay here when we're in London - comfortable, friendly efficient staff and excellent food. This visit was no disappointment with a lovely room overlooking the Thames. Dinner on the Terrace, a few feet from the river and watching the sun going down, was magical. The food too is always consistently good, with the added bonus that residents get... More

Felt like we were the only guests even though the hotel was busy. Extremely friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely visit again, you won't get better for your money! Only downside is distance from tube station, but they do offer to take you!

Quite good but not 5 star hotel in my opinion. It's all correct, it's next to the river the other side is industrial. We were 'upgraded' for a very good view of a crane and Jewsons. Luckily away from the heliport which is next door. However sound proofing is good so not too noisy. Ate in the banyan restaurant (50%... More

Booked here on a bed & breakfast basis. Arrived by car and met by member of staff who parked the car in their underground garage where it stayed until another member retrieved it on our departure. Reception staff friendly and efficient. Our bedroom was on the ground floor and of very generous proportions with one wall consisting of five floor... More

Stayed here with my partner in November 2014 for my birthday. I'm giving this a three star based on the interior design and comfort of the room alone. Definitely second to none. The room was sleek, stylish, had all the necessary amenities. Gorgeous and huge walk-in shower, larger than average bathroom for a London hotel with one of the comfiest... More

Such Style. Such class. Such beauty. The place is stunning and perfect for a romantic getaway or to host your wedding. I'll be back! Really sexy jacuzzi with a first class spa - type of place you would like to be alone with a lover... or two! My bedroom and bathroom were huge. The restaurant, which over looks the Thames... More

We Stayed at the hotel from June 15 to 18th. The staff we very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very modern, spacious and quiet. The area in which the hotel is located seems like a fairly new area and there isn't a whole lot around but a short walk down the Thames along the boardwalk will take you to... More

We had bed and breakfast at Rafayel on the left bank, both bed and breakfast were excellent. Reception staff set the standard which was upheld by all the staff we encountered, the hotel its self had a boutique feel, the decor style and cleanliness were exceeded only by the welcome and friendliness, great value happy to recommend.

I stayed here in May 2015 and the hotel was extremely clean with not a spec of dust in site. Staff were helpful and polite and facilities couldn't be better. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, couple or family. The only reason for my 4 star rating instead of the full 5 stars is due to the location.... More
