« Nice hotel and centrally located »

It is a very nice, quiet and comfortable hotel. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is twofold. First the shower is so small you cannot turn around in it and second the bed was very lumpy and "slanted" on one side. It was very uncomfortable for one of the two people in the bed. Otherwise the room was great and so was the housekeeping service. The room was also very quiet.

« Great Stay »

From check-in to the end of my stay, the service was attentive and appreciated. With respect to the room, its configuration could be have been optimised to make access the the working desk and angle to the TV screen better.

« THE place to stay when in London! »

I began staying at Sofitel hotels a few years ago and this hotel in particular last year. I am now completely spoiled and will not stay anywhere else when I am in London. They are in the perfect location in St.James, with all of London on their doorstep. The service is excellent and the bar is a delight to sip Sauvignon Blanc in and partake of their delicious nibbles.

N_Pesty, General Manager at Sofitel London St James, responded to this review

Dear guest, I am truly pleased to hear that we are consistent in delivering such high standards of service that our guests feel "at home away from home". We look forward to many more stays of yours at the hotel. A bientot. Nicolas Pesty

« Service far exceeded my expectation »

I was in London for a short period of time and the hotel service made my trip way easier. They took care of everything and I highly recommend it. They upgraded my room so the value was really worth it.

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your comments. I am really pleased that your stay in our hotel exceeded your expectations. We hope to have the pleasure to welcoming you again soon. Kind regards Nicolas Pesty

« Excellent »

After 2 months around Europe this was the best hotel I stayed in. Very well appointed, great service and excellent location. I'll stay there again next time I'm in London. A bit more expensive than some but still good value.
