Richer layers of icing on the cake…

It was by pure chance we found ourselves staying here. We decided to drive into London because their was a minimal charge to park the car. On arrival someone met us and parked the car for us. We were informed that the hotel had given us a complimentary upgrade, which is always nice to here. The hotel has a small reception area and it does have have a contemporary arty feel. It is positioned on the Thames and its restaurant commands spectacular views over the river. The hotel communal areas have outstanding floral displays and very inviting sofas to lounge in. The rooms are the largest suites that have ever stayed in, hallways, dining room, study area, lounge areas, but the bathrooms are out of this world and certainly have the wow factor!
I was worried that we would have trouble getting in and out of London, but no need to worry the Hotel drives you to and from the tube station. They couldn't be more helpful.

The hotel also boasts a spa, which is small but beautifully formed for a weekend stay. This hotel is the perfect place to meet up with friends and such great value.

“Incredible value”

My partner and I have just completed our second stay at Rafayel. I have to say that the hotel represents absolutely incredible value for money in London. The restaurant is first class with the slow cooked lamb being one of the many stand outs. On top of that you get 50% off your meal if you are staying in the hotel; amazing value. The rooms are beautifully laid out and decorated and the staff are incredibly helpful. Have stayed there twice and on both occasions the manager/owner Iqbal Latif made a point of asking us whether everything was to our satisfaction. Just a great hotel.

 very good size room and comfortable bed, the bathroom is nice and i love the rain shower here, the pressure is just right. Bus stop right out side of hotel which will take you to Victoria station in 20 min. A very nice place i would recommend to anybody that dose not want to stay in the heart of London.

The hotel Rafayel completely made our weekend away, I would even go as far to say that it deserves more than a 5 star rating!

We found the hotel via the internet and were instantly struck by its striking design and features, which proved to be even more striking upon arrival. All areas incorporate modern styling, including fixtures, fittings and furnishings which are all of exceptional quality. All hotel areas were immaculate, the bedding felt as if we were the first people to use it and the carpets felt as good as the day they were fitted.

We encountered the most professional and courteous service from all the hotel staff. The staff on reception especially could not do enough to help us, contrary to other reviews I have read.

The hotel has its own spar, which we received a discount voucher for when we checked in. Sadly, we only stopped for one night and did not get chance to use this fabulous facility. The restaurant and bar are stunning! The service was fantastic and the food was first rate. We had the full english breakfast which had plenty of variety and was self service, so quantity was not a problem! And what could be better than having breakfast whilst watching a helicopter land, as the hotel is right next to the London heliport.

We checked out of our room at 11am but were not leaving London until later that evening. The staff had no problem with securely looking after our luggage until we were ready to depart. They also have a complimentary shuttle service to Clapham Common station which is available every half hour with a professional driver in some very nice vehicles.

The hotel gives its guests so much for such a small price in comparison to other luxury London hotels, I find it so hard to understand how people can fault it. I will not stop in any other London hotel ever again and have already recommended the Rafayel to friends and family.

“super superb”

I stayed at the Rafayel hotel room 114 yesterday 20th October 2011. I was taken back by the impressive lobby outlay with warm greeting by staff, Polite, kind ready to assist. The food was great and reasonably priced. The paintings and statue were colourful and my room was clean not even a spec of dust. The hotel views are just breath taking over looking the thames with peace and tranquality. I will be coming again as well as informing my friends coleagues and business associates.

I have travelled internationally to many hotels and this hotel by far exceeded my expectations. Keep up the great work looking forward to another stay

Room Tip: Add your requests and requirements before hand even if you have a special diet or a non smoking room and during your stay will be amazed
