Best location in London”

Good & highly luxurious comfortable room and less than 2 mins walk from piccadilly circus.

Sofitel St James is the best hotel in London. This is my second time staying in this hotel. This place that makes me feel like being at home. Friendly and thoughtful staff and services makes me, a stranger in this gigantic city, feels like having good friends and family around me. And most important the bed is luxurious. Located within birds eye view from most of the important London sites, you can't really find a better place to stay. Walking distance to just about everthing important things to see and do in London. Shopping, eating, theaters and China town is all within a 15 minute walk. Will definately give Sofitel St James a two thumbs up.

Shaky start, but a magnificent finish”

Arrival was not the best, concierge were not on point. Carried my 3 bags in from my limo as they were too occupied chatting. Check in was good, but when i got to my room, it was not good. I booked a Luxury King Room, it was neither. Bed was a queen, the mattress was old and creaky, the phone didn't work and the sofa was hard as a rock as it was a sofa bed. When i spoke to reception (i had to go down to the lobby as the phone wasn't working), i asked if i was in the correct room, they said yes. I asked them about the bed being a queen and not a king, and they said "a King room doesn't mean a king bed"...um, yes it does. And it says so on the hotels own website. Long story short, i was room moved to a wheelchair accessible room that night (midnight). I received a call from the General Manager the next morning, who was genuinely concerned about the events of the previous night. He offered to move me again to a suite for the last night of my 2 night stay, which i accepted. I packed my bags and went out for lunch with a friend (great recommendation by the hotel concierge). My bags were moved to the suite and i collected my new room keys at reception on my return from lunch. The suite was magnificent..! It was the "Lord Lawrence Olivier Suite" and it was the most amazing suite i have ever stayed in. The GM also sent a bottle of Champagne and a large fruit tray with compliments of the hotel. I know mistakes are made, we are all human, i guess it was my turn to have a few all happen at the same time. but what really impresses me is how mistakes are rectified. Sofitel did this perfectly. What was looking like a terrible end to my 4 weeks holiday in Europe, turned into one of the highlights of the trip. I would definitely give Sofitel London St James another "go" as their efforts to make amends and to impress was exemplary. (The in-room dining is superb, i only had a club sandwich, but it was a delicious work of art). Checkout was fast and charming, and the farewell felt ge

Superb service in the heart of London's West End”

Staff and quality of service

Service is often what makes the difference in how you fee about a hotel. Sofitel have got it right. Superbly rained efficient, courteous staff where nothing is too much trouble. This is a luxurious hotel in the heart of St James - a stones throw from Trafalgar square, Piccadilly and Buckingham Palace . The room was spacious, the bathroom generous and with good supply of amenities. I didn't like that they charged for high speed broadband, but that was my only grumble. Breakfast was excellent, lunch delicious and again, the service was without fault. Very good cosy bar selling excellent cocktails, with a barman who really knew his drinks Lovely touches such as when I came in from a run They presented me with a bottle of water, cold face towel and an energy bar. The gym is small but adequate. Overall an excellent hotel. Sofitel continues to have unique individual properties where the consistent feature is the quality of the staff and the guest experience.

Good service but poor value”

Location, large rooms and near the tube

Service was good and friendly when checking in and location couldn't be better. Rooms were spacious for European standards and nicely decorated. All the five star hotels I have stayed in would have provided tooth brush and tooth paste among the toiletries without me having to ask but this was not the case here. While taking a shower I also noted that there was a strand of thread at the area where you adjusted the height of the shower head which looked like floss. That really grossed me out as well. I was really annoyed with the water temperature when taking baths/showers. Somehow it's always too hot/cold for me. Overall I expected a higher standard for the amount that was paid. The only thing that was faultless is probably the location.

Great Location, Great standards, but...”

Location, Room and Bar

What to expect from a 5 star hotel when one who wants to check-in at noon is told that his room will be available only at 3pm? Do you expect an excuse? I did not receive one. Do you expect an alternative solution apart from waiting 3h after a long haul flight? I did not receive one. Well Sofitel used to have standard that are now far away... A big disappointment because I love this hotel, great location, great room, great bar tenders. Definitely not a value-for-money hotel anymore...
