                    Good, bad and sad”
                    Good: a very nice room, clean, a comfortable bed, decent shower/toilet, and tea/coffee-making facilities. Manager and staff were helpful and friendly. The building is a wonderful old colonial structure. The location is convenient, yet quiet. Bad: I can find no indication on Agoda that the establishment is now halaal: no bar facilities, no wine, no standard breakfast. I have no problem with this, but it should be disclosed on the booking site. Sad: A hotelier once told me that owning a hotel is a great tax dodge, but that you'll see the signs when an owner is not a true hotelier: poor maintenance, inattention to detail, etc. He said too that a hotel that is not constantly trying to improve deteriorates. I knew the St James well and the signs are there: a bare light bulb on the staircase, dead bulbs in the reception chandelier, a rusty newsstand on the patio, wires hanging out of the room safe, cheap adapters. And the breakfast was heavy and greasy despite being pork-free.

                    Poor service”
                    When we arrived there were no towels and reception said they had a service provider laundry’s problem . The bed was did not have a bed sheet for the duvet cover. The next day there was also a towel problem Where we had to request towels. The breakfast took Long and came before the coffee and water ordered. We would Also have preferred if the place advertised as a halaal venue as then we would have a choice of booking the venue.

                    Clean rooms, comfortable beds
                    My husband and I recently stayed at the St James on Venice. Our room was lovely and big and the bathroom was part of the room in the open, which is okay if your not worried about who you are sharing the room with. The bed was very comfortable and big. The staff are in need of some hospitality training particularly in the dining and kitchen areas. We stayed 3 nights which included breakfast but the breakfasts are terrible.
