It was my second time there and it will be my permanent London hotel
Nothing really stands out
Staff was superb.
Small rooms; no view.
Great location ,outstanding service.
The room they first gave us was not nice.
The hotel staff is very kind and effective. The rooms are cleaned several times a day. The hotel is located at a great place. We had a very good experience in the hotel SPA.
The view from the room we got was disappointing.
The London Sofitel London St. James is located in the heart of London. It is a five-star hotel with neoclassical architecture. It has received many hospitality awards and is an amazing place to stay. London’s high society citizens would stay here years ago, and there are many stories from the years gone by of their guests. This is by far one of the nicest luxury hotels in the world.
There are many great accommodations here as well. Guest rooms include: elegant furnishings, cozy rooms, free WiFi, broadband connections, TV with Sky Sports, BT, and CNN, Movie library, iPod docking station, Sofitel My Bed, direct-dial phone with cordless telephone in bathroom, voicemail, fully stocked mini bar, safe, daily water, coffee maker, tea making facilities, bathtub with shower, Hermes’ essential amenities, power hairdryer, slippers, bathrobes, air condition, iron, ironing board upon request, 24-hour laundry services, 24-hour access to SoFIT, and courtyard views.
If this not enough, check out the suites the hotel has to offer. They include a bar, online check-in, valet parking, babysitter on request, late checkout, early check-in, currency exchange, concierge, fitness center, 2 bars, breakfast, room service, porter, and more.
This hotel is one of the best in London. This hotel feels like a completely different world once inside, and the craziness of life disappears. It’s a safe and wonderful place to stay. Guests never want to leave here, and there is a reason why. The staff, the food, and people are some of the best in London.
