We stayed at the Sofitel St James for five nights over New Year. We are regular visitors to London but this was our first time at this hotel.

I always stay at Sofitels whenever possible, and this was my first visit to London. The hotel is great, as usual. The location is perfect for sightseeing. Right near Buckingham Palace, Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, and St. James Park. 5 minute walk to the underground station. The staff is super nice, friendly, warm, and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable,...

I have been staying the hotel with sofitel brand of other places such as Bangkok, Queenstown New Zealand, Montreal and so on. You wont be worry with Sofitel. In my opinion, it is one of the best brand. Service was excellent, the hotel is located in the heart of London. The draw back is the hotel don't have a pool.

This was our first stay at the Sofitel and we were not disappointed! We usually stay at the Rosewood formerly Chancery Court for the last 15 years but the rise in price each year has made it unaffordable, so it was my task to find a 5 star hotel in a good location, that would cater for 3 ladies in...

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.
