It’s all about the experience. The staff couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. The room clean, comfortable, had a lovely bathroom. The only negative is that for a junior suit the room was fairly small comprising of a bedroom with adjoining bathroom. So not really a suit at all. The location of the hotel is incredible. Right in the heart of St James with easy tube access. I had a burger off the reduced in room dining, 9/10. Very good.

I am sorry to you felt our Junior Suite were a little too small for your convenience.

Anonymous Solo - 17/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was just OK and considering the price paid for it. I guess I was expecting something more. Good things were that the bed was nice and cozy and the breakfast was so delicious. It was delivered to my room at no extra cost because I woke up too late to go down during the breakfast opening hours. They also regularly checked in on me via text. Few moans are that the shower was lukewarm and the view from the room was of a brick wall.

Dear Ms S., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel London St James. I am sorry that your experience did not completely meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies.

I was glad to hear that you did enjoy our MyBed experience as well as your breakfast in your room. We have noted your comment towards the water temperature and will ensure to have our maintenance check the shower. Kindly note as well that for safety purposes a temperature safety pin is in place in our showers which when pulled does allow for hotter water.

Loved the hotel rooms were lovely staff are great . What ruin the whole experience was the car rally that was going on 10 till 1 am the Noise was terrible in the room the floor was shaking and I don’t understand why you put a family in the front room at the hotel when you know that’s been going on over the weekend I know it’s not your fault but i could not get my son to sleep

Dear Mrs r., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel London St James. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. As mentioned upon your departure the noise disruption at the front of the hotel was caused by a meeting of sports cars. This issue is a regular one that is however not punctual so we cannot know in advance. We have followed up again the issue with the council and local police to increase awareness and reactivity. I am once again very sorry for the inconvenience, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly should you require any assistance in the future. Sincerely, Amelie Hacking Assistant Front Office Manager
