I booked Hotel Rafayel for my girlfriends birthday and cannot thank them enough for the marvellous hospitality and great service that was provided to us. I was looking for a hotel/spa experience with a restaurant overlooking the river, and was torn between this place and another nearby. It was the kindness, warm and friendly welcome that I received from everyone... More

I stayed here at the end of December after a work event and booked an additional night as a treat just to chill out before Christmas. The hotel's location was convenient as Clapham Junction is a short walk away and I used the shuttle service on both days which was appreciated - a nice touch. Although this hotel is only... More

I booked a two night stay in this hotel as a treat for my partner and I and also due to other social events nearby. I firmly believe that first impressions last and unfortunately in this case my first impression was not at all good. I was aware that the hotel ran a free shuttle service from Clapham Junction train... More

I stayed at the hotel on Tuesday night and what a wonderful hotel this is! A little hidden gem! Check in was simple and quick and I was upgraded to a Yangtze Room on the 2nd floor with partial views over the Thames. The man who checked me in was really helpful and friendly. The hotel is very modern with... More

I had previously stayed at this hotel, and been surprised and dismayed to find a heliport in full and regular operation, in fairly close proximity to my room. Imagine my surprise therefore, on being booked into this hotel for a return visit, without my knowledge. Happily though, I'm pleased to report, the helicopters were far less frequent on this occasion.... More

My husband and I stayed here on a small vacation to London. The hotel room was incredible. The planet friendly features were very cool and the shower was without a doubt the best shower experience I've ever had. The only drawback is the distance to public transportation. The walk is not far but at night the neighborhoods we walked through... More

Lovely hotel although a little bit far out of the city although in summer it would probably be lovely as it's right next to the river. Clean, minimalist decor and beautifully decorated. There is a library on the 1st floor which is a nice little quirk. The rooms are huge although be careful on the floor as I slipped and... More

We have just returned from another excellent stay at one of our favorite London hotels......The Rafayel. We arrived at the hotel on Boxing Day and were warmly greeted by the reception team. In the past I have commented on the welcoming staff, the large well appointed rooms, the gym, the spa, the excellent food in the restaurant ( offered at... More
