When we arrived at the hotel I panicked for a minute as I thought I was being taken to one of the apartment blocks with people's washing stacked up against their windows and then you see the entrance (the Lamborghini parked outside gave me a bit more confidence!) it's a hidden Gem... The foyer was very nice, it was clean... More

had a pleasant evening at the Rafayel after work on day; looking over the river with a bottle (or two of wine). Had a show around of the different rooms available, which were all beautiful and spacious - would highly recommend the Julius Caesar suite! AMAZING! Great meeting room, spa and rooftop lounge which offers an array of flavors which... More

Stayed in the rafayel for the third or fourth time and was very happy with it. The reason for this is that I know what to expect- you get a large room with a view a comfy bed a fantastic bathroom with probably the best shower I have ever had in a London hotel and at a great price I... More

The Rafayel is slightly off the beaten track for those visiting central London. But what this hotel can offer more than makes up for that. The decor is very cool and modern, the rooms are large by London standards, and if you get one of the deals offered on Trip Advisor you will be hard-pressed to finds anywhere that's such... More

Certainly not 5 star service. 3* hotel at best. Dark and dismal. Shower handle came off in hand, burns in carpets and not vacuumed before we arrived !! Some of the staff need training in courtesy standards. The only saving for this hotel was the gentleman behind the bar who gave exceptional service. Won't be returning.

This cute little boutique hotel is impressive. I stayed in the suite and no complaints, absolutely flawless. Stunning! Customer Service - fantastic. Great food and the hotel view is spectacular. The car park could be improved. Overall - Highly recommended and I am definitely coming back. Thumbs up!

I enjoyed a bike ride all the way to the houses of Parliament along the bankside walkway! Room was well equiped, mondern and plush... More

The appartments aren't 5 stars. The hed was rather small, the furnishment rather basic. The view is good. But there is no 5 or even 4 star hotel atmosphere and you are also not treated as a hotel guest. It's quiet a trip to the other parts of London. Been to better places for less money.

Only stayed here one night but after seeing photos on the website thought we would have a nice view however we were at the back of the hotel which as you can see from the photos doesn't have a view. The room was lovely although the air conditioning was too noisy so had to turn it off and of course... More

The hotel itself is amazing, when arriving at the hotel the signage is not very good to find the car park and it wasn't very easy to find a space. Once in the room we were very happy, the only issue was the Tv over the bath was not working but the staff acted very quickly to fix it. The... More
