Wonderful Hotel

Our room was clean and spacious. The location is within walking distance of many activities. We were close to good restaurants, shopping, historic areas as well as beautiful parks. Most importantly, the atmosphere in the entire hotel is welcoming and relaxing. I appreciated the extra effort by all of the staff to make our visit peaceful and stress free. The entire staff did everything right. Everyone was on the same page to do their best. The bar has amazing signature crafted cocktails and the wait staff at the restaurant are attentive and quick. I highly recommend the St. James Sofitel.

Excellent service

We just stayed here last week and loved it! From our arrival at the front door, a smooth and courteous check in, to the very last moment, every aspect of our stay was excellent. We had a luxury king room with a connecting luxury twin for our two children (older teens) and all was outstanding. Cannot say enough about it and will definitely return.

Beyond Excellent if there's a word !!

Where do i start ?? Checked in late at night - what a warm welcome we got Being a long stayer ( we were staying for 7 days ) they were so good and understanding that paying a 350 pounds security fee for a long traveler can be difficult and without us even mentioning once the sweet front office manager told us that we wont have to pay for the security we understand you're a long traveler so we'll just close the mini bar for you ,simply superb !!The rooms - find me a bigger room in that vicinity with such a huge bath space ( excellent room ) .The Food - we ordered for traditional English breakfast in our room . just 31 pounds for the spread they served i bet even 4 persons wouldn't have finished it , superb value for money .The Location - pure Gold Piccadilly circus 1 min walk Soho area for all good clubs - 7-10 mins walk oxford circus high street market - 5-7 mins walk Buckingham palace 8 mins walk Leicester square 3 mins walk Bus and underground tube right outside the hotel if only there was a better location .They sell Bicestor village pass at the front desk it-self how cool was that !!It was raining 2-3 days and we were always presented with their Sofitel embedded umbrellas whenever we used to step out . Simply superb hospitality , many thanks to the entire team , cant wait to be back next Summer .

Terrible Customer Service

I just tried to book for a date in Jan 2018. I had just purchased theater tickets for Phantom and wanted a hotel in walking distance. This all for a very special occasion.They refused my reservation! And why, might you ask? My credit card expires before the booking date. I told them they could put the charge through now as I did not want to wait until I got the new card at the end of the year to confirm a room for the night. They refused. Amazingly, another hotel (with higher rates) took the booking with no problem.

My London home

This was my eighth stay at this wonderful hotel. The location is perfect. Central but still a bit more quiet then just a few blocks away. Really nice surrounding with St James restored. Close to buses. Wonderful service in every part and at every time. Quiet rooms with everything you need. A breakfast that you long for as soon as you leave the breakfast table. Nice flower arrangements and nice scent just enhancethe feeling of luxury and that you really never want to leave.
