My partner booked this hotel for an overnight stay during a quick dash to London. I've never stayed in the Battersea area before but I'd definitely return. The hotel room we had overlooked the Thames and Chelsea Waterfront. The room was beautifully peaceful despite the planes overhead every couple of minutes heading to Heathrow (just added to the view really)...

A very nice hotel, not easily accessed but with a complimentary shuttle bus that helps. The room was spacious and very well appointed and the whole hotel very quiet. I was lucky to get a big discount booking last minute, if not I would question the price against the 5* rating. Certainly a top end 4* though. Would stay again...

Booking a family hotel is always difficult when you have 3 children especially when you need to make further changes.. but not for the team at Rafayel Hotel! When I called in I was expecting to hear "I'm sorry but it's not possible" but instead I spoke to a delightful girl called Samya who took care of everything! Once we...

My husband booked the groupon deal as a treat for my birthday and a rare night away. We were collected from the tube station which is a nice touch and taken to the hotel. The hotel is situated right on the river and opposite Chelsea embankment. Our room was nice, the bed was quite small and the decor was a...

My friend booked us in for my birthday, with a 45min treatment and use of the spa. We had afternoon tea first, which was decent. Then we used the spa facilities, which were currently being updated. It was still nice though and the staff were friendly. Our massages were also nice. The star of the day though was dinner. I...

What a wonderful Hotel, nice location, amazing rooms, very clean, brilliant service, delicious meals, more than reasonable prices for London. Can't believe any guest can leave a review less than 5 star. Loved the experience of staying in Rafael Hotel and highly recommend to anyone!

We stayed here and gave a 5 star review in April 2014. We were in London and needed a room for the night so had no hesitation going to Rafayel again. I, my partner and our dog were again made a fuss of and we had the same ground floor Nile suite as our last visit. Everything was as magnificent...

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you chose our hotel again and that your stay was just as enjoyable as your first visit. We loved having you and your beautiful dog (who attracted attention and affection whenever walking through the hotel lobby!) stay with us and we look forward to having the opportunity to accommodate...

I had high hopes for this hotel but a complete waste of money. It does not live up to its 5 star rating at all. There are far better hotels in London. The cleanliness of our room was not impeccable as you would expect in a hotel of that standing and I have found better in Premier Inns. The bed...

Dear Edwina Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused during your visit, but we are sure you will agree with us that you could not have such a good view from a room in the Premier Inn, as in the room you were staying in. We can inform you that the cheapest room at the...
