Rafayel on the Left Bank
Not everything was great
Would not rate as a 5 star hotel more like a 4! The double room we stayed in was quite large but the furniture was a bit shabby, the shower was really nice and the bathroom was clean. The media hub didn’t work and the ambi light on tv, the spa wasn’t open due to a problem but wasn’t told of this on our arrival. The breakfast was lovely and staff were friendly. The location is ok but not much around although I did enjoy watching the helicopters land nearby on the heliport.

Not 5 Star
Definitely seen better days and location not great surrounded by commercial properties. Very dated and in need of maintenance (missing door at the entrance). Positive note free shuttle to Clapham Junction and bed was very comfortable and shower great. Negative - complex fan/lights hard to work, shabby deco, fridge didn't work in my room and food poor at best.

Not even close to a 5* hotel
I received a call at 1pm on the day of my booking advising that there would be no water in the room until 6pm, while it wasn’t ideal I was glad that they let me know in advance. At 6pm there was still no water, water...8pm no water! Each hour they assured me that it would be 1 more hour max...the water came back on after I had gone to bed at 11pm!! Not acceptable! The room was far from 5*, the carpet had a rip in it and the mini bar was just a money making excercise. When I logged in to the “free Wifi” it automatically enrolled me to a subscription that incured a monthly fee, had I not know how to opt out I would have been lumbered with this. I got my money back for the room but that is not the point. After a long commute, all I wanted was a shower before bed. Not much to ask from a 5* hotel.

Disappointing stay
When we initially arrived I noted it was above a bar and was told there were no events on so should be noisy but that turned out not to be the case and was kept awake until 3am. There was also an issue with toilet and sewerage kept coming into the toilet, which was most unpleasant. I reported these issues and received compensation of £19 which I think is quite laughable given the above. I paid extra for a superior room with Thames view and apart from the view the rest was a disappointment
