One Night Business Trip To London
Posted 28-Apr-2016 on Hotels
This was my first stay in The Rafayel on the Left Bank (I usually stay in Hampstead). The room rate on Hotels.com caught my attention so I decided to try this hotel. The hotel was exceptional (esp.for the price). Somewhat contemporary in design and style, yet it wasn't lacking in atmosphere. The room was modern - yet elegant, very clean, just about right in size and had all the usual and necessary fittings (iron etc.). The room also had a mini bar with reasonable prices. The bathroom was very clean and had a very luxurious 'walk in' style shower with ceiling mounted 'rain water' style shower head and multiple wall mounted shower heads. The bed was very comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The only downside was not being close to a Tube station. **TIP: ask the staff to ring a taxi as the private hire taxi was much cheaper than the 'black cabs'! I didn't have time to try the pool etc. Overall this was a very pleasant stay in a stunning hotel. Kudos to the management and staff. 10 out of 10. I will definitely be going back.
