It is a well run hotel with very friendly and helpful staff at the reception, but also in the restaurant. The quality of the food in the hotel restaurant was good at a reasonable price...

I returned to The Sofitel after a year, and found it even better! Location, service, food and luxury, just cannot be beaten. I travelled with my daughter, and felt so comfortable in the hotel. I can strongly recommend this hotel to everyone, who enjoys 5 star quality without been ripped off!!!

This Sofitel is centrally located and walking distance to Piccadilly Circus Underground stop, straight shot from Heathrow Airport, near theatres, Soho area, and shops.

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.
