Historical Traveller Reviews of Sofitel St James London Hotel
very comfortablefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Room was a Deluxe, £200 a night including their excellent but wildly overpriced breakfast - £22.00 a head. Needless to say, we ticked just about everybox available. 'More Black Pudding Darling?'
Super comfortable bed, small-ish but clean and stylish bathroom with a nice deep tub and seperate shower with a large head. Roger and Gallet products were a nice touch, as were slippers.
We had dinner in the Roux Braserrie, which was surprisingly good value. OK, it was the 'pre-Theatre menu' with a limited choice but at £20.00 (+ service charge) for three courses, half a bottle of wine and coffee, I was surprised. The bar, as always was expensive - £22.00 for two average drinks. And the Rose room with the Harp tinkling in the corner was all a bit pink and more pink. Fine maybe in a Jane Austin novel but somehow it looked a bit out of place.
One tiny moment - on checkout they tried to charge me twice for breakfast which when seen on the bill was a bit of a shocker - £88.00 for two! But sorted promptly and without a fuss.
All in all though, an excellent stay. Not the cheapest in town but a superbly quite room, attentive staff and a location that can't be faulted.
PS. The Milkman did it!
PPS. There isn't a Milkman in it.
Fantastic, but not cheap!from PaulPap
Great bar, serving up wonderful cocktails. Being a Sofitel Privilege card holder, we got treated to a freebie champagne in the bar. Very nice.
I'd live here, if I could afford it!!
s nice, however not a 5 star hotel yetfrom kgs
--The rooms are very small. If 2 people want unpack and not live out of suitcases, advise getting the largest room you can afford. At the superior level, you need to ask for the larger superior rooms. Showers in bathrooms were a bit too small.
--The hotel managment is generally good and wants to solve problems. We were moved into a junior suite (which is a larger room with 2 chairs/ottoman and closets in the entryway) because the phone system didn't work properly in our room.
--In the junior suite, we had to call maintenance a couple of times because of burned out lights and blown fuses. The lights should be checked by housekeeping more regularly.
--Staff: Ask for Angel at the concierge desk and Sally Ann at the front desk. They were great and helpful. The rest of the staff we encountered were only ok.
--Needs a cab stand, particularly at busy hours.
I don't think we'll return or recommend to friends.
We loved the Sofitel St. Jamesfrom SeattleWA
The staff was amazing and the little extras were wonderful. There is a big container with umbrellas by the front door and the staff will chase you down the block if they think it might rain and they feel you should take one for the day. The concierge called me at home in the states, twice, to update me on restaurant reservations.
The afternoon tea was amazing. The only funny thing about it is that every bit of food in the hotel is made on sight and their French version of scones and crumpets was funny - although delicious.
I could go on and on, but the best thing I can say is that after twenty years of visiting London I've found MY hotel and I'm never staying anywhere else. Worth the money

Good choice, really high class.from Joe2316
The bathroom was de-luxe! The shower is the best I have used - and I have stayed at quite a few 5* places.
The TV didn't work properly but that wasn't why we chose to go to London.
Generally attention to detail was very good, housekeeping staff were prompt.
The gym is small, but was empty so we used it exclusively. Breakfast was of a good quality but seriously overpriced. You are better off going to a nice cafe by the Thames instead.
Overall, you will feel pampered and won't regret your choice. Five stars!
Top Local Tips for London
West End Shows Bring some cash in case the TKTS booth's credit card processing is not working. Great deals for great shows, just avoid having to run to an ATM by bringing the cash with you. TKTS booth is located in Leichester Square and offers 25-50% off shows.
Take the Bus If you are only in London for a few days and want to get the most bang for your buck as far as sightseeing goes do take the open top bus tours. Yes they are cheesy but you do see alot, you can hop on and off and the passes are good for 24 hours.
