St James Court A Taj Hotel
- What's Included
Firstly, I have to start this review by stating that normally, we would always stay at the Landmark Hotel, so our expectations, are naturally high, and I had heard good things about the Taj hotel.It certainly looks the part and the staff are exceptional, however, I do have to agree with some other reviewers here - I was expecting more from the room. We stayed in the classic double, and for the price, it is small, and quite dated in all honesty. Having said that the service and friendly staff more than make up for this.I probably had the worst nights sleep in a long time here - The mattress was lumpy and giving way in places, so it was particularly uncomfortable, but I think this could be sorted by spending a bit of money in some of the rooms. The shower isn't great either, very weak and not adjustable, so it felt like it took ages for my hair to get wet as the jets were too far apart (or some of them were just blocked), and I don't have much hair!All in all - a lovely hotel that made up for what it lacked in comfort, in service!
This was a very nice experience - I loved the Comfort of the Beds and the fact that they were Big enough... The environment is so cool, just what you need after a very busy day... I'll be back here every time I travel for Seminars and will recommend this to my friends.
I expected so much more and ended up a bit disappointed on arrival. Don't expect a double bed in the classic 'double'. Smaller than a double and nothing special. Stayed in so many hotels that offer better rooms at a better price. Breakfast choices were good but the cooked options were only warm. Location of the hotel made up for some of the disappointment and it is nice and close to St. James tube. Doormen were absolutely lovely and helpful so deserve a wee mention.
We stayed in a classic king room and it was very nice. It was a good size room (we didn't have an amazing view, but I didn't request anything special either). Check in was a breeze and the lobby is lovely with plenty of plush seating and a nice lobby bar with live pianists at night. Everyone we encountered at the hotel were very pleasant. We loved that Buckingham Palace, Westminister Abbey, and Big Ben were so close! It's a nice area to stay in and the tube station was very close as well. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to London!
A very nice hotel, within walking distance from St. James' park, Victoria Station, Buckingham Palace.Overall for London standard very good value for money.The Bistro restaurant has a lavish breakfast and some nice dinner choices.Amenities in the room include coffe/tea and a minibar.Several other facilities in the hotel include a wellness centre, gym, sauna....Overall a very nice stay.
