Our 2nd stay at Sofitel on the 29th Aug. This is a superb hotel and the staff really make a difference from the moment you pull up outside. Swift check in, excellent room and a great breakfast. The bar is also very nice. Our number one option in central London.

We chose to stay at the Sofitel for a couple of nights. The standard as you would expect from a Sofitel was very good and all the staff were excellent. The hotel its self was quiet with the exception of lunchtime in Wild Honey which was pretty busy on the restaurants reopening day. Breakfast was excellent and the room very comfortable and quiet . Covid practices were very good and we felt very safe. All the staff wore masks their were plenty of hand sanitisers around the hotel and one on every table in the restaurant. We had a lovely stay and would pick the hotel again.

Outstanding service and well set up to safeguard guests during Covid 19. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, 4th floor or higher, nearer the Pall Mall end. Spotlessly clean and very friendly and professional staff. Will be re visiting very soon, Very good for business breakfasts, central but quiet. 200 yards of so from Piccadilly Circus and close to Buckingham Palace. Nearest tube Piccadilly.

We had not stayed at the Sofitel St James for over 5 years but decided to treat ourselves for our planned trip to London to coincide with our anniversary. We were absolutely delighted with our decision. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome. The room was excellent, the breakfast likewise and nothing was too much trouble for the charming staff. We were even set little puzzles to solve - perhaps because we had told them we were planning to do a Treasure Trail one day. The prize was a drink voucher! If you want superb service with a touch of luxury, this is the place. We will be back!
