For the last three months I have been spending at least one night a week in various hotels in London - At last I am pleased to say I have found the one that suits all my requirements. I have now pre-booked myself in once a week. I have found the rooms clean, incredibly well laid, and top class with an added bonus of fantastic views across the river.
It has a welcoming feel and the staff are friendly as well as highly professional.
When I stay there, very often after a hectic day of meetings, I go to sleep knowing that in the morning I will feel refreshed.
I am certainly recommending it to anyone who asks. As I have pointed out I have stayed in a large amount of five star hotels and often have been disappointed with their rating - the Rafael however deserves every star it has.
