Great hotel!! When we first arrived at Clapham Junction station we thought it was going to be a long walk but it wasn't! Only took about 10 mins. We had a really good 2 night stay at the hotel. The staff were very helpful with any questions we had. The room was lovely & big!! Plus had an AMAZING shower!...

We stayed 3 nights in room 223, which was massive!!! A jacuzzi too and huge bathroom. We had a problem finding the hotel on the first day and had to walk for miles, but once we were used to where it was, we managed fine. If you walk to battersea bridge along the riverside path, there are lots of buses...

I've recently had the most marvellous weekend at the Rafayel Hotel. I initially chose this hotel for its location as I had travelled down to see a Turkish band who were playing in Wandsworth and therefore wanted to be south of the river. I also decided that I would stay a second night and do some sightseeing, which I did...

Our 2 night stay in this fabulous Hotel was absolutely wonderful, all of the staff were extremely helpful, our room was superb with amazing view over the Thames, truly excellent restaurant and bar too. Being able to park your car safely in their underground car-park was also a great facility and we shall certainly return at our earliest opportunity! In...

I have stayed at the Rafayel a number of times and have had a excellent stay each time. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, making you feel like a valued customer. The rooms are really comfortable and clean and the room rates are very competitive. I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed here again after having trouble before with the dvd player before,have to say the dvd was connected and sorted straight away. Extra milk was brought to the room straight away when asked for. Its easy to catch the bus to victoria station, for your ongoing journey. If they keep this up would definitely reccomend this.

Just returned from a 7 night stay at Hotel Rafayel. The hotel didn’t quite live up to my expectations, however it wasn’t bad either-hence the rating average. I wouldn’t quite call it a 5 star hotel as it lacks in many aspects. I booked a Thames view room, had lovely views of the river, but after the first night I...

This is a really swanky, modern and cool hotel in Battersea. I don't think it's too well known - I lived nearby at one stage and wasn't familiar with it. But its a really nice hotel, worth the splurge if you want a top class hotel. The room I had was massive and beautifully decorated. The best part was the...

We have just had a 2 night stay here for a theatre / sight seeing day - this hotel is 10 minutes walk from Clapham Junction which gives good train access to Central London in less than 30 minutes. We had booked on-line so Check-in is quick & your car parked for you if you wish. We had a Amazon...
