This was our second stay at this hotel and we love it. The location is second to none as you are at the heart of the city and can really walk everywhere and take in the sights. It is a 5 minute walk to the Underground and taxis run past the door ! We had room 411, which was very... More

Great rooftop bar. Take the lift to level 6 for wonderful view of Trafalgar Square and the London Skyline. Heaters and blankets available if it's cold. No good if it's wet. Cocktails and service are excellent. Great place to take any visitors to London.

Must say they have fab staff in Front Office and even more in the F&B. Loved the size of the rooms and could not find issues with HK as well. Only thing is that the furniture gets a bit left behind and shows the need for a upgrade.

Let me start by saying the location is really good (right in the heart of Trafalgar Square). Equally, the service staff where also great and I cannot complain about the breakfast which was also very good. What lets this hotel down is the rooms, or at least the one I was in.

This hotel is fabulously located for easy walking and underground access to the whole city. And on the whole, the staff is friendly and well meaning.

Overall, we had a great experience at this hotel. The location can't be beat - literally across the road from Trafalgar Square, and the tube station is just a tiny bit farther away.

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
