Top class hospitality. We stayed at hotel Rafael between our house moves - and made the most of this opportunity to stay at this luxury hotel. We really saw luxury at every corner here - from the mattress and cushions on the bed, to the shower and taps in the bathroom, to the décor in the reception and first and second floor lobby space. The big plus however was the spa centre. We were fortunate to be there during that rare window of time amidst the Covid restrictions that were lifted during this period. It meant we could experience the wonderful gym and the refreshing jacuzzi and sauna. That just made our day!

Great location on the south Thames walk
Great location on the south Thames walk Rooms comfortable and clean Do not get a room which has a dividing door to the neighbouring room! Very loud neighbours - which transmitted through the door easily. Resulted in us having to change rooms at 1am - hotel helped with this.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Stayed in the Nile junior suite and it was just terrible. The view is nice but the room was dirty, shower floor is chipped as if someone dropped sharp objects in the shower multiple times. Tv by the tub was a nice touch. Staff was nice but couldn’t be bothered. don’t pay £200 a night like I did. Too many other hotels with better overall service. In room safe didn’t work so I had to keep all valuables in my car. Any other hotel will be better than rafayel unless you find a good deal. Looks nice on the website but truly not worth the price.
