Hotel Rafayel is a modern hotel on the Thames. It is moderately priced in comparison to other nice hotels in London. I imagine this pricing reflects the hotel's location. It is on the Thames, however, it is not close to the tube or overground line. The hotel tries to compensate for this by offering a shuttle service to the under ground or overground lines but it was not clear how to use this service and to whom and when it was available. The other shortcoming of this location is that there is a dearth of good places to eat breakfast in the Battersea area. The hotel room we had was roomy, had a big state-of-the-art TV, and an amazing shower, with all kinds of jets. The bathroom, however, lacked good lighting. Other shortcomings we noticed were that the carpet had stains and there was a strong chemical odor in the lobby in the morning. We thought this may be coming from the salon?
