My partner and I were looking for a reasonably priced hotel, just for the one night and as a base to go and see a west end show. Imagine our delight to find not just excellent value for money - but with such great facilities and excellent staff too. We ate at the hotel restauraunt Banyan on the Thames, and... More

We booked this hotel for a night away in London. The room was beautiful, very clean and big. However that's everything positive I could say about this hotel. We found it to be very overpriced for what you actually get. You simply have your room and that's it, no breakfast, no complimentary drinks etc. As soon as we walked into... More

We stayed at Rafayel on a week day in August. From the moment you step into the warm welcoming reception, you feel very 'at home'. Reception staff are attentive to all needs & here to help our stay a memorable occasion. Bedroom was spotless, and very comfy, and very quiet. Would very much recommend this 'little gem of a Hotel'

We have stayed in this hotel on 3 occasions and have not been disappointed. Easy access from M4 and parking a good find. Although not on a tube route, a bus stop outside takes you straight to Victoria station or the hotel run a free service to Clapham Junction. Rooms are spacious, bathrooms fantastic and most have a semi view... More

We found this lovely hotel shortly after they opened about 5 years ago. Yes it is on the other side of the Thames, but definitely do not let this put you off. The bus stops immediately in front of the property and takes you for a short ride through a lovely section of Chelsea containing antique shops, galleries and two... More

Went for what was supposed to be an anniversary for me and my partner. Nice room. Crap views. Very dusty and the speakers in the room stopped working whilst in use. However the room was nice. I was sick for days with the food. I ordered a simple sandwich. The smell that emitted from the sandwich was that of a... More
