A Christmassy feel, helpful staff, great room

We were greeted warmly, our room was ready and spacious. I do love a separate bath and shower! Lunch in the Balcony was OK, we were not thrilled having to wait over 40 mins for our Tomahawk steak, especially as the chips were luke warm.Breakfast was better with staff we have seen on previous visits remembering us and stopping for a quick chat.The room was lovely (as always!) with such a comfy bed.

Let down

Front of house very polite and helpful. Don't order drinks at the bar as you get charged 12% just for the barman to bring your drinks to the table!!! Which we weren't told about till we signed for the bill. We ordered our drinks at the bar sat down and waited over 20minutes and still no drinks had to chase them up and we still got charged 12% for that service or lack of it!!!! We felt as though we were treated diffrent as we were not in formal attire, as everyone else got a nibbles tray olives etc with their drinks and we got 3 macaroons! We were still paying guests the same as everyone else so expect to get treated the same. We didn't have breakfast the next morning as didn't want to feel uncomfortable and be treated the same as the night before.the location was perfect 10 mins walk to the theatre and 10mins away from trafalgar and 10 mins away from the nearest tube. Would stay again as location perfect,but if get treated the same as last time will not be happy and will probley not use any of the facilities. The mini bar was VERY confusing as some people are not used to having one in the room(. But yes expect one here for the price of the room) but as people like me take a bottle out of the fridge to see what the drink is then read the SMALL writing on the side of the door which says when you take a bottle out of the fridge it has a sensor on it and that drink gets automatically charged to your room😡!!!! Luckily my hubby shouted put it back which I did straight away and wasn't charged.what happened to trusting people to be honest to say what they have drunk,for the amount you pay for the night to stay,the hotel have your card details so if your not honest they can then charge you. Express check out a great idea very quick.

Excellent stay

My first experience of the Sofitel and it definitely won't be my last, fantastic hotel. My room was well appointed and spacious. Staff were attentive and very pleasant. Breakfast was great, I just stuck to what I always have, however the selection was endless. Looking forward to my next visit already

Sofitel is such a pleasure

I stay at many places in London but I always come back to the Sofitel St James. The staff are such a pleasure, they respond quickly to your every request. The rooms are modern, large and classy. Free WiFi, comfortable bedding and pillows, the best rainfall shower in the city!The area is quiet yet right in the heart of Trafalgar Square, Regent St, 10'minutes walk from the theater district. There's a Tesco, Pret and cinema right up the street. The food in the hotel is very good as well.It's my favorite place to stay when I'm in town for a week or more or for just a few days.
