St James Court A Taj Hotel
- What's Included
I stayed here with my husband for a weekend. This hotel is in a great location, just off Victoria Street and near all the main attractions for tourists such as Buckingham palace and Westminster. Our room came with breakfast which was delicious. The staff was so friendly, our room was quite the small but the is London so is what we would expect. A lovely central hotel with friendly helpful staff staff, we would stay here again.
I am 1 night into a 3 night torment. The room is straight out of a deceased estate sale from the 90s, with mis-matched faux heritage furniture all jumbled together. Everything is extremely worn out. The 'minibar' is presented on a side table rendering the table unusable. There are all sorts of switches around the room that no longer appear to serve any function. There is rot in the wood and mold in the bathroom. The service is poor. There front door is often unattended leaving guests to struggle up the stairs or steep ramp with their luggage. The wrong newspaper was delivered to my room.Taj should be ashamed to charge the prices they do. Do yourself a favour - go to a hotel that takes itself and it's guests seriously.
We stayed here for the first three nights of our honeymoon before flying off to another city. It was a lovely experience. The staff are friendly and attentive, the hotel bar was a great place to cap off a great day in London. The drinks and food were dynamite. In our eagerness to see the city and do some exploring, we didn't do as much exploring throughout the hotel. The courtyard area was beautiful, along with the exercise room. Our room was rather far from the lobby, which was a bit of a pain, but that is really the only gripe we can come up with.
The Taj Hotel and food was excellent, and the location was perfect for visiting London. When we're in London again we will stay at the Taj Hotel. The staff greeted you as you entered the hotel and said enjoy your day as you left.
I must point out that I was quite anxious about our booking given the reviews about less than par room sizes. We booked the classic studio and once we entered the room we were amazed at the sheer size of the room. It's was huge! Check in was a breeze at 2pm with a slight wait until 230pm.House keeping was brilliant keeping our room nest and tidy every single day even for turn down. Breakfast was delicious although it was the reason I could not give the stay five stars. First we stayed for six nights and with the exception of the Indian menu the continental breakfast was the same every single day. Second the hotel was not equipped to handle the rush which occurred usually after 830am. Given the hotel has seven floors with over 100 rooms this is not acceptable for a Taj hotel. Third from day one of our stay our daughter who is four ordered pancakes off the menu and only on the last day were we told that pancakes was not included in the buffet. We were not charged in the end but this should again bit occur for a Taj Hotel. The hotel is exceptionally beautiful and service absolutely brilliant in almost all areas. Would definitely stay here again.
