This property is simply elegant and stunning. To find such a property as this in the middle of town is a real gem. From the moment you walk right into the property, you feel blessed. Everything was so immaculate. The rooms were nice. The bed was comfortable. All tourist attractions were within walking distance. Even the tube is just a... More

We recently had the most wonderful stay in this great hotel. The location couldn't have been better for theatre visits. The staff make you feel very welcome and the waiters appear before you even realize you need them. Try one of their delicious cocktails, you wont regret it. After a tiring day you sink into the beds, they are cloudlike,... More

Stayed two nights and had a smallish but very well appointed room. The hotel is stylish and comfortable and in a great location. Our shower did flood the bathroom floor but it did not hinder our enjoyment.

Stayed here recently; accommodation and service was excellent. Location is also amazing being a 2 minute walk from the heart of Piccadilly- I think this will be my automatic choice of hotel on future visits to London. The bar is a bit expensive but that's just London for you!

Staying at the Sofitel St. James was a truly exceptional experience. The location is pretty much perfect. You can easily walk to many top sites, including Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Parliament, Trafalagar Square, National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery, Picadilly Circus, West End theaters, etc. The service in the hotel was simply outstanding. One Guest Relations staff member in particular,... More

Wonderfully gracious hotel in center of London, walkable to everything from West End to SoHo. Restaurant is excellent as is the bar, with Maxim the bartender making awesome drinks and will treat you like royalty. Not stuffy either. Love this place, stay there every chance I get.

I traveled to london with my wife and we stayed in this hotel for 5 days, it is really a great hotel in great location, just walking distance to underground station. The breakfast is perfect, the room is elegant and luxury. They used some special fragrance in whole hotel which smells great. The SPA is superb, we really like it... More

I stay here at least once a year for business. This year I upgraded the room to accommodate my spouse and one teenage child who wanted to take advantage of the great location to your London. The staff are always friendly and looking for ways to make your stay more pleasant. The restaurant (Balcon) and bar staff are terrific and... More

We stayed 4 days on our first trip to London. From the moment you step from your car one of the Sofitel Ambassors make you feel welcome. Marne at the front desk is an outstanding host. She explained the amenities of the hotel and asked us to wait for 15 minutes while they freshened up our upgarded room, well worth... More

I had a 10 day stay here for the first time here last August. I chose the hotel based on reviews, central location (walk to most theaters, National Gallery, etc.), and good experiences with other Sofitels. I was not disappointed. The hotel is elegant, comfortable and enjoyable in all ways. Especially of note was the friendly helpfulness of all of... More
