Me and my partner stayed at the Rafayel hotel this weekend October 2010. It was amazing, we had one of the amazon rooms at the end of the coridoor so it had floor length windows all round which was great. The room itself was huge and had a really big bathroom.
We ate at the Banyan on Thames restaurant on Friday night which was really good, the hotel also has a 50% off deal at the moment so it was affordable.
The hotel runs a shuttle service every half an hour to clapham common or clapham junction, but we needed to go to battersea power station and the driver gladly took us straight there.
There is a bus stop straight outside the hotel (bus 170) which goes directly to victoria.
i would definitely stay at this hotel again and recomend to a friend.
