My partner and I stayed here for one night on 12th September as I was participating in a charity event nearby. When we arrived we were informed that we had been upgraded to a suite - room 603. This was a pleasant and unexpected touch that got the stay off to a good start. The lady at reception was helpful... More

My partner booked the rafayel as a surprise for my birthday between the 9th and 11th September. Upon arrival at clapham common our free shuttle service turned up with a very friendly and knowledgeable driver. We asked the few drivers we encountered a number of questions and all were answered with great knowledge and friendliness. Upon arriving at the hotel... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. My boyfriend booked this as a surprise for my birthday and I was very impressed. The hotel is very modern and stylish and really liked the calming ambiance of the place. Loved the double shower and bathroom - it was really pretty. We dined in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner and the food was... More

I stayed on business at this hotel and found the rooms really big for London. I don't know what type of room I had, but it was huge and full of all modern gadgetry. I didn't want to leave the room to go out to the awards I was going to. I would have been far happier to stay in... More

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for a night while we were in London. As it was a rushed trip (trying to fit London in in 36 hours is a feat), we didn't spend all that much time exploring the amenities of the hotel. The staff was nice and helpful, the rooms were beautiful and the overall experience... More

I have been staying often at this hotel for the past 18 months and to begin with the service was great and really enjoyed my stays here, unfortunately the more you stay with them the service goes down. I have been debating to change hotels for a while and it was the icing on the cake when I left my... More

We booked this hotel for four nights because it was rated 5 star. It certainly was not. Upon arrival we were shown to a tiny room with a tiny "double" bed. We requested a change and were moved to a larger room in what appeared to be an annex to the main hotel and situated above the restaurant. We had... More
