Over night stay
Pleasant stay in all though I would class this hotel as more of a 4 star than a 5 star, just lacked a few things like little toiletries in the bathroom, and bottles of water in the room. Also the curtain in the room was covering the mirror up which made it quite difficult for me to get ready.. it was a pleasant stay but just didn't have that '5 star' feel to it.

Not five star in my opinion.
Easy to find and spacious car park, Excellent shower and plentiful tea and coffee facilities.
I had one of the standard rooms for my single night stay which although adequate, next time (if there is a next time) I shall perhaps opt for something more substantial with an improved view. The room it's self was just ok, bed excellent and shower amazing, I love those powerful body jets together with the watering can type overhead fitting. Lighting in the bathroom (no window) was not suitable for shaving and tiled floor in the entrance area freezing cold, you'd think this type of establishment would have underfloor heating. The location of the hotel is a decent walk from anywhere and transport is essential however, the hotel does have a good sized underground car park at £15.00 per day. Nice cocktail bar with friendly staff. Be warned, check out is 11.00am and at 11.30 the girl on the front desk called to say I'd be charged extra if I was going to be much longer.......charming.

Love this place
2nd time here and went back as it was such a good night the first time. The owner Iqbal Latif cannot do enough to help you enjoy your stay and the staff and service are very friendly and helpful. Has a great gym and jacuzzi and the bar and restaurant make for a fabulous night. We ll be back xx Helen f

Superbly comfortable
Friendly and helpful staff, lovely view of the Thames from the restaurant, spacious and comfortable technology-smart room
Brilliant. We were very happy staying there. The staff were very friendly and good with children too. It is located away from the busy and crowded parts of London.

Spacious room, shower, spa
Very comfortable stay. It was very refreshing to be at a unique hotel, rather than a hotel chain! It had lovely individual "touches".

Clearly not up to the usual 5* standard
The room was an okay size and there was a kettle in the room
My stay at the Rafayel was disappointing. I stay in hotels two or three times a week and this is not up to the usual standard of a four or five star hotel. It seems more like a hotel you'd find in Delhi or Bombay. The decor looks a bit tacky, the room wasn't amazingly clean, the layout of the room was a bit odd, the finishing of the decoration etc wasn't good - there were cracks around the skirting etc. The shower floor was really slippery and the hotel remedied this not by replacing the shower trays with more suitable models, but by placing colourful children's rubber shapes on the shower floor! This is not a hotel which would stand alongside any other five star hotels I've stayed at and very few four star hotels.

not the best. Not 5star
Bathroom, view of river.
It was quiet which is good. However when I walked in construction was being done, room service cleaner take too long to finish & room is still dusty after they leave. Sheets had small stain in mattress. Def not 5 star
