One of the best hotels I ever stayed at! Great staff that was extremely helpful with all questions pertaining to site seeing and great restaurants! We dined at their restaurant which was excellent … five star service and food. Looking forward in going back this fall! Beautiful building that was a former bank, we love the location just steps from high park

Went to the spa as a gift for my boyfriend, masseuses were lovey and so was the spa — however my massage has left me extremely achey and I couldn’t relax throughout the experience and spent most of it clenching my jaw from the pain even though I ticked ‘medium’ on my form when checking in — couldn’t walk at all after, my bed was extremely squeaky and the chosen scent didn’t last long and was sprayed only twice. Some of the massage was super hard and some was so light it was literally just rubbing oil on my body. We were offered to chill after the 60 minute couples massage with complimentary tea, however 25 minutes of waiting and no tea, the staff were in the back room massaging each other and giggling, and one reminding them they still have guests around but no acknowledgment at all. Decided to just get our jackets and leave. Not worth £200 at all but at least my partner enjoyed it hence the 2 stars! Such a shame as we are local and wanted to find a regular massage place.

The room I have was amazing. The bed was comfortable and very big. The bathroom had both a shower and bath. The shower had a lot of pressure and had a big head so was like being in a waterfall. I didn't use the bath but it was a very large size. I had the breakfast which was a buffet. Had the usual range of croissants and English breakfast food.

High quality hotel with excellent, customer driven service in all aspects: check in, check out, and concierge. Great breakfast, awesome cocktails at the bar. Rooms are modern and first class with all the necessary amenities. Would highly recommend for business and personal travel. For French speakers please note many staff are bilingual.

Rooms very comfortable and good furnishings. Excellent quality toiletries. Breakfast was quite good with excellent coffee. The buffet service areas were quite scattered so it wasn't obvious where the bread/pastries were. However a minor complaint. Some errors with our bill but these were quickly sorted out. Would be very happy to stay in the hotel in the future.

Sofitel in St. James was one of the best city hotels I have stayed in London. The staff were very professional and courteous. The room and the hotel facilities are very well presented and have more of a boutique feel than a chain hotel. It is centrally located near attractions, shops and restaurants. I will definitely be coming back.

Check in was warm, friendly and efficient. The cold juice drink served during check in was delicious. As a club Accor gold member my status was recognised and some lovely in room extras were provided and as well as a complimentary cocktail in the bar. All staff were friendly and helpful, the public areas are impressive and well maintained, as was the room. I particularly appreciated the powerful shower and the Hermes toiletries as well as the night time turn down service. This hotel is in a fabulous location, easy walking distance to the theatres and restaurants we had come for. We had a wonderful 2 night break and would definitely stay again the next time we are in London.

Another 5 star property set in a historic building right at central London. The place exudes old world charm, though internal space is not as well proportioned as modern day hotels. However, that is well compensated by smaller more private options as you move from the central lobby into the cafe and private rooms. The reception area is nice, the concierge is friendly and the hotel is busy. Really busy.

A truly wonderful stay, from the moment we arrived. We were greeted warmly, and carefully checked in (the juice at reception was perfect after the long flight from Seattle! ). Our room (222) was very nice, with the hallway layout offering privacy and a greater sense of space. The bed was a bit softer than our own, but was comfy. There was a bit of cranky fan noise from the AC (we mentioned it), but otherwise the amenities were wonderful. The evening treat was welcome… and the variety amazing (during out 8 nights! ) Must commend the staff. They were exceptional to a person… each having the perfect balance of attentiveness without being overwhelming. Each greeted us with a smile and kind bonjour!

Wonderful and unforgettable stay.
The hotel is very well appointed. The entrance hall is the central element by its arrangement. The common areas are at the same level (no stairs and no steps), the dining room, the bar, the tea room, the toilets, the reception are arranged regularly around the entrance hall.
The staff are professional, proactive, enthusiastic and dedicated.
The room was comfortable and quiet with a shower separated from the bathtub for the "luxury premium"
On the other hand, many cumbersome poses: catalogs, menus, magazines, products, cups of herbal tea etc.
One less chair in room 503 compared to the 502

Beautiful hotel in the heart of London, the art of receiving does not invent itself. It works, and at the Sofitel Saint James all the teams have understood it and is going to make you spend a very pleasant stay. So thanks to all the receptionists, concierges, maids, waiters, bartenders, cooks, and all the others for the satisfaction you give us.

I felt everyone went out of their way to make our stay special. The location is great and the hotel is beautiful. Thank you for everything.

Everything about our stay at Sofitel St James was truly wonderful. The staff were very friendly and always available to help. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfast and the service at breakfast were excellent. The location of the hotel was perfect for us. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and my 60th Birthday, and we were blown away by the gift from the hotel of cake and biscuits presented on a tray with a rose, and a lovely note. Such a nice thing to do and it made our stay very special. Everything exceeded our expectations.

Arrival was not the best, concierge were not on point. (Busy laughing and chatting amongst themselves while I waited in my limo). Carried my 3 bags in from my limo as they were too occupied chatting, so when they eventually did ask if I needed help, I was rather abrupt in my response (which I cannot repeat here). Check in was good, but when I got to my room, it was clearly not what I paid for. I booked a Luxury King Room, it was neither. Bed was a queen, the mattress was old and creaky, the phone didn't work and the sofa was hard as a rock as it was a sofa bed. When I spoke to reception (i had to go down to the lobby as the phone wasn't working), I asked if I was in the correct room, they said yes. I asked them about the bed being a queen and not a king, and they said "a King room doesn't mean a king bed"… (um, yes it does, and it says so on the hotels own website). Long story short, I was room moved around 11pm to a wheelchair accessible room that night which had a king bed. I received a call from the General Manager the next morning, who was genuinely concerned about the events of the previous night. He offered to move me again to a suite for the last night of my 2 night stay, which I accepted. I packed my bags and went out for amazing steak lunch with a friend (great recommendation by the hotel concierge). My bags were moved to the suite whilst I was at lunch and I collected my new room keys at reception on my return. The suite was magnificent.!

This was a return visit after more than a decade. I think it's improved beyond compare. The staff are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. The towel and bottle of water (and energy bar) on returning to the hotel after a jog in the morning was a classy touch! (My son (10) pointed out that a cold/wet towel and iced water would have made this out-of-this-world! )

We spent some time at the bar at Sofitel before the start of our evening as a family friend was staying there. The atmosphere was great and very conducive to Friends meeting for a chat. The drinks selection is great and the service was impeccable. We liked it so much we ended up coming back at the end of our night — unfortunately it had gotten a lot louder at that point, but what London place doesn't that happen to? The location is unbeatable, the experience great — definitely would recommend it if you need a place to meet up at.

Location = great, very central. Hotel is very clean, staff very polite, many French people are employed there. This means, that they speak with some very strong French accent of English. Occasionally, this complicates the understanding. The rooms are fairly spacious, but you can also expect that for a price of €400 on average.
All in all I was very satisfied!

I was treated to an afternoon in the spa, complete with 60-minute Rejuvenating facial (very good, although my therapist was really noisy and kept bashing away at the pots she needed, somewhat ruining the relaxing vibe), an amazing jacuzzi where you can see taxis and red buses going past while you're hidden away, and an afternoon tea for two with the creamiest cakes — beware, it's *hugely* filling so make sure you skip the meal beforehand as you'll regret leaving any of the delicious mini-scones or cakes.
