Fantastic hotel, great service! Unbelievable, we came early and went to walk. When we returned, we couldn’t find our suitcases — they already put them in the room! All workers are very friendly, knowledgeable and polite. The room is very clean. Everything looks great! Thank you very, very much!

One of the more high end hotels. Probably because it’s literally next to Buckingham Palace. But that’s where it begins. Very close to tube station St James Court and walking distance to Victoria station. The gym is great. Staff is super friendly and responsive with a sense of urgency to the guests. Lobby and door staff are very welcoming and warming. The breakfast was awesome! They can prepare eggs or omelets just the way you like. The pianist during happy hour was awesome and added flare to the place while having a drink. I joined the mailing list the Taj inner circle. Needless to say I plan on returning in fact I rebooked on my last few days of holiday before flying back to the states.

A lovely hotel with amazing architecture. Built in 1902 she is showing her age but for location and value for money you can't go wrong. As with any hotel there will be a few who will complain and give a bad review — no turn down service and mini bar was two complaints I read FFS! Get a life people! I judge a hotel on the staff and all of the team here at the St James Court have gone the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable but above all relaxing. SWMBO'd had a minor problem… the hair dryer wouldn't reach a mirror. Problem brought to attention of Front Desk and 15 minutes later extension cord provided and hair being dried. We arrived home late last night with injured wrist/arm following a fall requiring ice pack to reduce swelling/pain asked for assistance at Front Desk, greeted by name and within 15 minutes ice and towels delivered to room. As I said I judge a hotel by the staff the work there and serve us. This hotel's staff go above and beyond. Great location, great value for money and I would happily stay here again when next in London Town.

This is a decent hotel but by no means 4 stars as indicated by its reviews. It is generally clean, but the shower is mildewed, the mattress is ancient with a dip in it and has a musty smell, and the wait staff are unaccommodating and inattentive. One night we sat in the garden for 15 minutes before we were able to get a server’s attention whilst two other tables who sat down after us received even worse service. Another night, after getting out of a play later in the evening, we watched a boy eat a pizza that had been served not five minutes before, and the waitress refused to even ask the kitchen to make one for my son, because it was not on the night menu. I asked, “could we get a pizza? ” and she replied, “is it on the night menu? ” I asked politely if she could request one from the kitchen (given they had baked one moments before), and she replied that if they she did that for us, she’d have to do it for everyone. Five, or even four star service? I think not.

Catalogue of errors soon after arriving. Noisy room which resulted in us being moved at 03. 30 to another temporary room. Third room was fine. We were late for Trooping The Colour which was the whole reason for the trip to London, this was because we couldn’t gain access to our car. Basically, not going back to The Taj again sadly. One word of warning, make sure you are well informed of the prices before allowing your vehicle to be parked in Q Victoria car park. We were not informed of it being owned by a third party!

Beautiful hotel near Buckingham Palace. The style of the rooms is very classic but they are definitely spacious and very well organized. The area does not offer great attractions and restaurants but within a ten minute walk you can reach the Big Ben and the Riverside walk along with the London Eye. The cost of the rooms is not properly cheap but the quality you pay.

We just could not get over how well we were treated. Everyone was so friendly and ready to help, and everything you could need for a good vacation, from milk already in the fridge for your tea, to shaving and toothbrush kits in the bathroom was provided. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel.

A nice Victorian hotel centrally located in London. Friendly staff, that really want to give you a five star hotel experience. Housekeeping staff were also extremely friendly and helpful. Have not tried the bar, bistro or restaurants as had other plans outside the hotel. Room was big, bed was big and comfortable. Only downside was the single glazing window (it was very cold, February) with a sloppy paint job, and heating system that did not work (filter turned out to be blocked, preventing it from working). And the endless noise from building sites outside, which went on until 11 PM. If you want to get your hair done, try Dar, the in-hotel hairdresser. He knows his way around with a blow dryer and is not afraid to tell you that your hair cut isn't doing you any favors. He is full of anecdotes as well. The hotel is situated near some nice restaurants, the department store House of Fraser, drugstore Boots and is near the underground station St James' Park. Also conveniantly located are several breakfast bars in the morning. I found the hotel breakfast overpriced at 22 pounds, and I just want a simple breakfast.

If you have researched a London Vacation you know that one of the top priorities is choosing the proper accommodations. The location and price of your hotel will probably dictate how favorable you view your time in the city. And since nobody ever travels to London for the weather, you may be spending more time in your London hotel than a normal vacation. So getting the accommodations right is important. Well, I have done the research for you. I typically spend 2-5 months planning my vacations meticulously and so in some ways there are never any surprises. I selected the St James Hotel because I assumed it was a great values and was somewhat a convenient jumping off point to explore the city. Only in this case I was wrong. The St James hotel exceed all expectations far beyond what I could have imagined. The staff are way better than the reviews may suggest. The breakfast (make sure it is included) is the best hotel breakfast I have ever had. This is worth repeating … St James has the best hotel breakfast I have ever had, anywhere! (Talk about a great way to save $ on meals in an expensive city). The amazing courtyard (you have already seen the pictures) is better in person. The little hotel bar and live jazz at night was unanticipated and great. The Christmas decorations were fabulous. The Jr. Suite was larger and more comfortable than expected. What can I say, my wife and I were smitten by this hotel. While visiting one of the world’s greatest cities … the St.

This was our third stay at the hotel. First time when it was still Crowne Plaza, last year as is was already Taj. Our second stay last year was everything but great, but after receiving an e-mail by the general manager, we decided to give it another try this year. And to be honest, this time you completely overwelmed us with your hospitality, most outstanding service and delicious food. From the most welcoming check in, the beautifully renovated excutive room itself, the lavish breakfast and the very pleasant check-out, everything was spot on. If anyone had a bad experience at this hotel, do give it a second chance, so many people are making an effort to make this hotel a truly hidden gem in London! Thx to everyone for making our stay remarkable! Next time in London, we will stay again at your premises, even more we will even recommand it.

Shockingly bad upkeep. I've seen far better at 1.5 star hotels such as Motel 6 and Super 8 - not an exaggeration! Although the entryway is stellar, the halls and rooms are appalling. Paint literally peeling off the walls, water damage in the bathroom, mildew in the bathtub. I only give 2 stars because the service was quite nice. I'm told that half the hotel has been renovated, but make sure you can be guaranteed a renovated room before purchasing.

If anyone is looking for a great deal on hotels you can check it out on HotelRaven. com Booked a room on there and they had the best rates around... It is a superbly located hotel that enabled us to connect to all forms of public transport with ease. Getting around London was easy from the Taj. The foyer, restaurants and bars are first rate and the service was without fault. Our basic room was very large and beautifully comfortable. Our room was in need of a little bit of tender care but this did not translate into dissatisfaction. A great place to stay.

Tried their afternoon tea in their Kona restaurant and it ended up a disappointment. It's fine that we paid 45 pound per person to have only 90 minute tea time there. But it's totally unacceptable that the waiters put our deserts into a flat plastic takeaway box and destroyed all the deserts we wanted to take away. I don't get it why it's so hard to prepare a good paper box which can fit the cakes as you only allow people to have afternoon tea for only 90 minutes. We feel that they treat their residence guests better and we didn't get the god services as we just came to have afternoon tea. All in all, the waiters were not very professional and the whole experience was disappointing. We don't recommend anyone to dine here.

Hotel in a convenient location compared to central London. Some rooms are furnished with new supplies, others should be revised. Great but expensive the Indian restaurant below the hotel.

Stayed here last night with my girlfriend. Absolutely fantastic service, staff are really friendly and helpful, rooms are tidy and clean. We went to the royal albert hall and came back to a pristinley decorated birthday cake for my girlfriend which was a fantastic gesture. Location is perfect, just down the road from buckingham palace. Could not fault the hotel. Will definatley stay again.

Please don't be fooled by the professionally taken bedroom photographs of this hotel. To say it is "dated" is an understatement. The reception area and courtyard are well maintained and are very relaxing but go through the foyer and past the doors to the rooms and you see the real hotel. If this hotel was anywhere other than 500 yards from Buckingham Palace it would be a 2 star hotel at the very best. The expense of staying here certainly does not reflect lack of quality, with regard to comfort, this hotel has to offer. The room we were first given was B&B standard, so we asked to be given another room. The management moved us to a room 5 doors away down the hall which was equally as dated and alot smaller. The staff were all excellent with exception to the original receptionist that checked us in. No please or thank you and no directions to our room. A complaint was made regarding other guests smoking on the 5th floor and the smell coming into our room, which was laughed at and answered with "well they could be charged an extra £150". All in all I'd say the hotel would be 3 or 4 star in somewhere like Spain but in London I'm sorry to say there are better hotels for similar money

A heritage hotel in central London. If you are lucky, Her Majesty could be your neighbor. Breakfast (usually included in the rent) is very good, with lots of Indian food. Staff is good. As is expected from a hotel of this category, it is not a budget hotel. London tube station is a 3 minute walk and a taxi stand is just outside the hotel.

This hotel was perfectly located for my needs. It was just a short 6-minute stroll to Buckingham Palace, 12 minutes to Big Ben and a 22-minute walk to the London Eye. The elegance in the lobby continued into the room which was also comfortable and had a good-sized bathroom. I had organised for a package to be sent to the hotel before my arrival and the concierge was more than happy to accept delivery and keep it until I checked in. The cheerful, friendly and professional staff also contributed to a great stay.

Spa and gym great, food is delicious, service is okay, nothing to say. If anyone coming to London for tourism, I recommend this hotel. Geographical location from a variety of traffic.

Crap hotel for the money you will spend. Terrible concierge especially the French guy. He is so rude but the rest of them not much better. They forgot make my dinner reservations and order a car. Completely forgot to notify me. Thank you useless. Told me they had upgraded me. From what?! my 280 pound a night standard room to a standard room?! Thank you but I'd rather stay elsewhere next time. Utterly useless.

The location of this hotel is probably the only real reason why someone should consider staying in this hotel! Besides, the staff is mostly rather unfriendly and overstrained. When we arrived we were given a tiny (and quite shabby) room with a strange smell. We therefore complained and were able to change to another room which was ok. When we noted that the bed was too small, the bath was not really clean and the overall condition of the furniture of the room had seen its best days, the staff just noted that we had booked a classic room and therefore could not expect anything else… In the nights it was really noisy (because of an event) and in one night the fire alarm went off, giving us almost a heart attack. But even after this, none of the staff apologized in any way. We have been to London numerous times and seen hotels of all kinds. Therefore, we can say that this hotel is not worth the money besides the fact that friendliness should be included at any rate.

Location is probably the biggest plus for this hotel. 10 minutes to Houses of Parliament and 5 minutes to Buckingham Palace by foot. Some coffee shops and grocerie stores nearby. Tube is a 3 minute walk away. Lobby is quite nice and employes where polite. Room was quite spacious for London and quiet while facing the courtyard. Bathroom not new but ok. Internet fast enough for a video chat with Skype, which means fast enough for me. Breakfast was ok but really not worth the 20 £. Overall a good stay, would stay there again.

We stayed for a couple of nights in an executive courtyard facing room. The location is great for tourists. — The staff let us check-in at 10:30am without any hesitation. — We booked a few last minute tours with the Concierge at the same price as venue booking — — this included fast track entries to some places. — We took the breakfast option during booking. You can have the food delivered a La carte in the morning to your room. — The gift shop in the hotel has better quality items at the same price as stalls by the attractions A few more complimentary touches could be added to make a vacation stay even more enjoyable. No complaints otherwise.

Chose the hotel for its proximity to the Palace as I was being awarded an MBE. Stayed, with family, overnight on 18th March. Staff were welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. Rooms were very comfortable, food delicious, would definitely stay again.

The location is good. The lobby and courtyard is nice. The staff was helpful and mostly friendly. The room it itself was just okay for the money. We had a deluxe king room over the courtyard. The bed was hard and the pillows were terrible. The TV was small and the channel selection was minimal. We paid for the included breakfast which was pretty good. Keep in mind that you don't have to eat the mushy buffet eggs, you can order what you like.

We have just returned from 3 nights at St James Court Hotel. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. We were made to feel very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is beautiful, rooms immaculate and very tranquil. The courtyard is a lovely place to sit and read a book while enjoying a coffee or a glass of wine. The breakfast was unbelievably good value, and really tasty with something for every palette. I hope we can go back another time, we really enjoyed our time. Thank you.

Even if you advance is on a visit to London on high hotel costs with less comfort than sets in other European cities, this hotel under still dripped all expectations. The hotel is definitely not 4 * standard. External + reception Yes, the room + services are however more than disappointing and the price (€ 200 p. N. ) absolutely not justified.
A single room as a double room was sold to us. Tiny bed, the room located by, generally very manageable, directly under the window was the ventilation system of the hotel; I. E. Permanent noise even when closed Window. Also no room replacement was granted on demand. Leaking Windows, no air conditioning (heating only), bath or The rooms are generally strongly in need of renovation.
the service was suck and most of the time (3 days, WE) absolutely overwhelmed, stressed and unfriendly.
Here are just a few excerpts: The suitcases have been linked to delay and 4 calls later in the room 60minütiger. For breakfast you can line up every morning in a snake, until you get a table (8 floors, about 400 rooms and a tiny was. ). The tables are so tight that one must make the gang free again during breakfast or for other guests or staff. The ordered omelettes or toasted sandwiches came when we were finished with the breakfast.
