We stayed here for one night on a Saturday my mum was taking part in the London moonwalk over the Saturday night so wanted somewhere relatively close to get up early and go and see her across the finish line. I'd made a banner/sign which I accidentally left in the reception area when I came back to enquire about it...

Rafayel on the Left bank was a great find. Only a year or so old, the hotel is crisp, trendy, modern and very tastefully decorated. The room was large and offered all the features you'd expect including a wonderful bathroom with huge powerful shower. Room lighting was especially nice with subtle LED lighting. We didn't eat at the restaurant, although...

Stayed her for my partners birthday. Room was a decent size and had a massive bathroom and lovely shower! We used the spa which was lovely. The only small negative is the location there is not much around

The Rafayel Hotel is a strange place spilt into 2 buildings. One building for your room then across a walkway into the bar/restaurant. The hotel is a strange mix of an art Gallery and sports bar. Modern pieces of art next to a cricket bat next to a football shirts signed by messi. Rooms are large spacious lovely big beds...

I stayed here before and it was fun. This time it wasn't. Air-conditioning didn't work. TV didn't work. Key didn't work. Everything needed a call to reception. Not answered quickly, and not actioned satisfactorily. It's a shame but this really was a dreadful weekend at £900 for 2 (no extras).

One night stop over at this hotel, not our usual type of stop over however really enjoyed it stayed in deluxe room which was comfortable and large if in need of a upgrade. The jewel was the restaurant/bar food and service excellent and spent a few hours watching the world on the Thames pass by.
