    Superb

    Staff were very cheerful and went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Beds very good. Room quiet.

    Roux brasserie was remarkably poor in quality of food at dinner. Staff serving were very attentive and concerned when complaint was made about food, but there is obviously no direction from M. Roux in the kitchen. The quality of the a la carte menu was little different to the cheap pre theatre menu. We tried both with regret. Air conditioning a problem with our room.

    This was my second time at Sofitel St James,I was still surprised by the amazing treatment as the kindness they treat their guests.I had been to some other Sofitel Hotels in Europe,I do find this one from far the best one of any other I had been before.Regarding the team attention to any guest's needs,trying to give us the best confort we could dream.Every single evening a musician plays beautifully bringing the most romantic atmosphere..As a frequent traveller,I do recommend it for an unforgetable scape in London.

    The staff were amazingly helpful and the beds were sublime. Location was most convenient for walking in local parks, getting to usual tourist sites and public transport. Would recommend this hotel without reservation and with fullest enthusiasm.

    Superb

    The staff were excellent - very personable, friendly, and looking for ways to enhance your visit. The location was superb. The room was fabulous. Beautiful and luxurious fittings. Wonderful shower! The reason I chose Sofitel was because my Mum, sister and I all wanted to share a room and there were few hotels that could accommodate us - we had a junior suite at Sofitel and it was very comfortable for the three of us. I would definitely recommend Sofitel to friends. It was pricey but the service and overall experience was second to none.

    We were disappointed to find the restaurant was closed for refurbishment when we got there. If I had realized that when booking, I possibly wouldn't have booked this hotel, but in fact they did a reasonable job of coping without it.

    Room was outstanding but the staff were the most pleasant and courteous I have come across, hugely customer focussed and will genuinely go out of their way to make their guests feel just that, like guests.

    The Sofitel St James is all you would expect of a luxury hotel in London. The rooms were spacious as per the bookings details, with pleasant decor, and it was quiet. The location was excellent for the parks and shops and sightseeing. The real jewel for this hotel is the friendly and helpful staff. We would be happy to stay there on our next visit to London.

    Fabulous

    Well appointed hotel and great location for theatre and shopping , we went to the o2 and the hotel was easy foe that venue also , 5 minute walk to the tube and 6 stops without changing . The hotel was having minor refurbishments , which we were aware of , and the bar was temporary and disappointing , very good Gym , and as my wife doesn't usually eat breakfast , I can't comment on the food as we didn't use the restaurant . Unusually for a 5 star hotel it had tea and coffee making facilities in the room

    Due to it being part of the Accor group , there is a heavy French influence , eg the hotel information book in our room , didn't have an English or other language section , luckily I can read enough French to get the basic information , I did inform reception , but it was no corrected by the time we left

    The friendly, helpful, professional staff, the convenient location to London Fashion Week venues incl shopping and the nearby parks incl buckingham palace etc , the style of room, the bar for casual dining alone in a lovely setting and the ability to order from the restaurant menu with great service, the super delux cloud-like beds!

    That I could not stay another night in the same room due to construction/maintenence in the room

    Very good

    We ordered full english breakfasts and waited half an hour for these to arrive, but unfornately they brought waffles for one of the breakfasts sent them back and waited a further 10 mins, still no breakfasts. In the hotels defence they did offer complimentary glasses of champagne, but the damage had already been done!! The shower over the bath is quite technical, 4 levers to activate the shower!!!!!
