Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and like being able to get around mainly on foot, but also with easy access to public transport. The atmosphere is comfortable without being too grand and as a lone traveller, I am greeted at the door, bar and restaurant. The rooms are spacious with all amenities and everything is clean

On business there is no better accommodations in London than this hotel. 5 Star accommodations located conveniently between Piccadilly Circus ~ Theatre District and Trafalgar Square with the National Gallery.

We went as a family for a weekend. The hotel was very nice, the staff super friendly and nice. Everything worked very well for us. The breakfast buffet was very nice and of high quality. The bar was very cosy. The location, just next to Piccadelly Circus and Travelgar Square is great and makes it essy for a weekend trip.

Very nice property, superb location, good price if you book way ahead. The only negative is the gym which is too small, they told me they're expanding it which will be great for my return. I could walk easily to the West End for my theatre indulgences.

We stayed at Sofitel St. James on the front end of a European trip. Sofitel exceeded our expectations on every level, especially the front end staff and service. Literally, the best we have ever experienced, from the bellmen to front desk staff to concierge. SSJ team were pleasant, knowledgeable, and exceedingly accommodating. We especially enjoyed getting to know Marine, Thibaut...

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
