My colleagues and I like using this hotel for business meetings when we prefer not to meet at an office location. It's conveniently located (near Charing Cross and Piccadilly Circus stations), has a fine selection of restaurants on its doorstep, St James Park around the corner and lots of shopping too. Both the Rose Lounge and the St James Bar... More

We have stayed twice in this hotel on visits to London. Its situated in an excellent location close to all attractions, the West End and Covent Garden. The service is very good and the foyer area attractive with fresh flowers. A highlight is the elegant high tea in the Rose Room. The bar is stylish with a modern atmosphere. Breakfast... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times. However, do not get there before 3 PM. Somehow they don't believe in having any rooms early. Terrific location and once you get into your room, everything is perfect. Friendly staff who are also helpful and polite. Extremely clean. Nothing is to much for them.

We loved staying at the Sofitel. The location was fabulous in St.James -- closeby to Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly and Soho! Not to mention a short walk to Buckingham Palace. The Hotel rooms were nice and the Staff was very friendly and helpful.

It is always a good feeling to be welcomed to a hotel, however, when being welcomed back it gives you a feeling of recognition and how valued your custom is. A lovely London location, the rooms and public areas are well decorated and maintained to a high standard. The best bit about this property is the staff, they are a... More

We always stay in Sofitel if can find one in the city. Really good location - walking distance from Piccadilly Circus and the Underground. DBL Deluxe room was quite spacious with comfortable bed. Perfect service and helpful staff.

Our family recently stayed at the Sofitel during our first visit to England and we enjoyed it very much. This location just can't be beat. We were two blocks from Piccadilly Circus in one direction and two blocks from St. James park in the other direction and a 10 minute walk from Buckingham Palace. And, oh my, the wonderful shopping...

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.
