About Great, Modern 1BR Flat in Battersea - One Bedroom Apartment, Sleeps 2

Aiming to embrace green technologies with five-star luxury, the Rafayel on the Left Bank is part of the Falcon Wharf Development, set south of Central London.

Inspired by the river that the Rafayel looks over, each room-type is named after different rivers from around the world. All rooms carry up-to-the-minute technology, flat screen TV, a safe and offer free Wi-Fi.

The hotel aims to lower the average London hotel guest’s carbon footprint by 20% using techniques such as rainwater harvesting and LED lighting without compromising comfort.

The hotel’s restaurant Banyan on the Thames offers al fresco dining overlooking the river with a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu which, according to the hotel, are focused on the ‘modern-day health conscious generation.’ The Crystal Bar offers lighter snacks to accompany their cocktail list.

A shuttle service runs every 30 minutes from 7.30am to 10pm to Clapham Junction and Clapham Common stations. This accommodation is also known as Rafayel Left Bank London, Rafayel London, Rafayel On The Left Bank Hotel London, and Rafayel On The Left Bank - Hotel And Spa.

Chic and Charming

The hotel has a modern and chic look while still being comfortable and approachable Similarly, the different room types are all contemporarily styled.

Negative Reviews

Hit & Miss Dining

While many guests have enjoyed their meals at the restaurant, some felt the food was hit and miss, over-priced or inattentive wait-staff.

Not Five Star

A five star rated hotel must leave a very positive impression on all guests and has little to no room for error At the Rafayel on the Left Bank, a number of past guests were left wanting for a five star rating to be deserved but didn’t receive it.

Minor Maintenance

While the Rafayel does score highly on many guests’ ratings, as it should, a reoccurring theme was small maintenance and cleanliness issues throughout the rooms such as poor lighting, broken electrics or grubby kitchenette-ware.

Location, Location

With views of the River Thames, the Rafayel on the Left Bank can offer great views, but with its location south of Battersea Park, it is a bit further away from Central London’s leading tourist sites than some guests realise.
