“Yes the location's not perfect but ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

... if you want to stay in a 5 star hotel at at a lot less than the price you'd pay in the West End then stay here.

Rooms are absolutely amazing, service and breakfast very good though not totally outstanding.

Totally recommend it but just be aware of the location which is absolutely fine and there are plenty of bars/restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk but it's not right in the middle of London.

Battersea doesn't spoil a visitor with an exhaustive choice of quality hotels, thankfully the Rafayel provides a superbly priced, quality, classy answer to an overnight in Battersea, with parking! We chose a thames view room which was great. It's an enjoyable stroll along the river to find a couple of good bars, and a 10min taxi to the best Argentinian steak house in London, made even better when returning to the outdoor waterfront terrace bar late in the evening. We would highly recomend!

This is such a amazing hotel i went there with my family as a suprise for my sister's birthday. The rooms are fabulous and are so spacious. Great location, great hotel, great restaurant. The spa would be even great if it was bigger. All around it is a great place.

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor are amazing.

We booked one of the Thames rooms which had the most amazing view of the river Thames all around us..The shower was amazing..You get 50% off your food bill which made the restaurant very good value for money £50 for 3 people eating 2 courses..There are 2 parts to the hotel which makes it feel a little strange but once you see the view it is worth it..A cab to the West End is £20 and to the Kings Road £8...It is a little out of the way but you must get a room with a view...

Room Tip: Room 123 and you can watch the helicopters landing..

I have stayed there during the week since August and am about to finish my assignment and leave the hotel after 9 enjoyable months spent there. Can't speak highly enough of the staff and the surroundings they create. Very friendly, helpful and scrupulously clean and well maintained. Good gym, excellent restaurant and even a well stocked library. Having stayed in hotels all over the world, I would definitely say that the Rafayel can't be beaten in terms of value for Money and attention to detail. Upgraded many times without asking too. Highly recommended, and I'll be staying there whenever am next in town..

Room Tip: river views are especially nice..
