As per rooms and facilities the hotel delivers. Great views, pleasant staff and facilities. Reasonably priced restaurant downstairs. I stayed with my young family in a penthouse overlooking Battersea Helipad ... You can imagine the joy of a 3 year old, who gets to see helicopters landing and taking off all day. All in all - very reasonable Hotel in...

I've just been treated to a fantastic birthday meal by my husband at the hotel's restaurant and what great food they serve! The menu is somewhat varied so we had a bit of everything i.e Indian starter, Thai green curry and steak for main courses and cheese cake for dessert - all tasted delicious. To top it off, we were...

We stayed for two nights in the Amazon Suite which was very spacious and accommodating.The hotel itself was very impressive, with a sauna, gym, pool, and spa all available to guests. The service was very good, with attentive helpful staff. All in all, a gorgeous hotel! My one critique is that the hotel is in a poor location if you...

On first arrival, Rafayel on the Left Bank offered a five star experience. Greeted by one doorman who took my luggage as I was directed to the subterranean car park by another, I was impressed by the general attitude and friendliness of all staff - in particular at the check-in-desk. The room had a Thames view, and was clean, spacious...

Stayed in an apartment linked to the hotel. Plenty of room and well enough equipped. Food at the Banyan restaurant is very tasty and good value once the 50% discount for being a resident is included. Although the hotel is not near an underground station the 170 bus leaves directly outside the hotel and gets to Victoria in 10 minutes....

What a fantastic Hotel. Stayed here for a weekend London break to do a bit of sight seeing and christmas shopping and it was an excellent base as there was a bus stop just outside to the left and if you jumped on the 72 into Victoria Station you could then walk as we did or catch another bus; recommend...

Have stayed here many times and exceptional value for money in London. Restaurant has similar menu each time but what they do they do well. Outdoor bar has fantastic views of the Thames (though too cold in December!) Staff in the bar are always very friendly and owner often around who is polite and chatty.
