My first trip to London was an excellent experience, Sofitel was more than I could have hoped for. Check in was friendly and efficient, the room was spacious and the shower and bathroom was great, especially after a long flight from Australia. The concierge was absolutely fantastic, they helped me see so many of londons sights and gave excellent recommendations... More

What a fantastic location! Having stayed in a few Sofitel's in the past we know that they have super comfy beds, which is big draw for us as we both have back problems, so the St James hotel had been on our 'to-do' list for a while but on previous attempts to book it had been full (usually as we...

One of the best hotel in London. I have stayed here several times and can recommend this hotel. Very good location, nice room, friendly and helpful staff and good restaurant/bar. I will also recommend the spa, lovely and very professional. I will definitely stay here the next time I'm in London.

We had a wonderful stay in Sofilet St James last week-end Not only the hotel is perfectly located, very comfortable and well equipped, but we felt being looked after as recognized individuals, not as one in many.

Perfect - stunning and the most central location. Fabulous staff. Not pretentiously over bearing or as show off as other establishments of the same stature. Elegant Christmas. Quaint warm bar area. Bright open restaurant. Breakfast delicious.

Our family, including two young children, recently stayed 5 night in one of the suites. It was an amazing experience. The rooms were very nice and clean. The suite had a separate room for our children which was great for giving them their own space and for sleeping arrangements. The hotel staff made us feel very welcome and went above... More

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.
