Beautiful Hotel & Great Service

This hotel is great. Very beautiful in a prime location in London. Everyone who works at this hotel great people with Greta personality and great attitude except one person (Breakfast Dining Manager) I believe his name is Robertino. This guy needs to learn the rule number one in the hospitality industry you must have good attitude, great smile with a friendly personality. Not just to the guest but also and most important to his coworkers. Three days in this hotel having breakfast and I had the opportunity to see this guys behavior. This guy doesn’t have any skills that can match up the quality, the elegance and service that this great hotel has to offer. The room that we stayed was very comfortable and very clean and very quite. I had the opportunity to need the cleaning ladies and this ladies are just amazing. Great smile great attitude alway saying hello. Great feeling of welcoming. The polish door man’s and the French concierge great people. This is the kind of people who makes you feel at home. Great attitude with a great smile always going the extra mile to make you feel welcome at home. The check in was fast and efficient very friendly receptionist explained everything great smile and very professional. Who later introduces us to Maria. A very lovely lady who gave us a tour of the hotel and eventually escorted us to our room. I wish I could remember names but the Brazilian girl, the Macedonian girl and the New Zealand girl who works at the e restaurant for breakfast this ladies are just amazing. This three ladies knows how to put a great sincere smile and great attitude with top notch service. The hotel it is absolutely beautiful with beautiful Christmas decor and a beautiful bar with the best location in London just steps away from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station (Metro Subway Station) We really enjoyed staying at this hotel and we will definitely when we comeback to London it will be our hotel of choice. Thank you for all.

This is definitely one of the few expensive but unserviced 5 star hotels. The hotel staff only smile contemptuously at the guest's needs or stop the guest from asking questions with a blank face. The hotel restaurant is also not open during business hours. Everything is chaotic and disorganised. It’s quite easy to understand why Sofitel brand has lost its value in the Accor Group.

Bonjour, We are extremely concerned to hear your comments as we normally pride ourselves on the highest levels of guest service. I would very much appreciate a private exchange with you and kindly ask you to contact me directly at the hotel. I hope to hear from you soon. Sincerely Marie-Paule Nowlis, General Manager

The hotel has a nice reception and the rooms are great. The subtle service when you come back in your room at night and everything is made ready for the night, including some classic music in the background, makes you feel very welcome. Well done - you will see me again

Hotel has a welcoming feel, and radiates stature. The Accor app is increasingly efficient (but not near as efficient as the Hilton one. :-). ). Nice new room, small for the price but good.

Bonjour Ms B., Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. We are delighted to receive your kind comments on the location of our hotel, we also pleased that you appreciated the high standard of service from our team. We do, however, regret to hear that we did not meet all your expectations and would like to remind our guests that we do have varying categories of rooms with different sizes and are more than happy to help you find a room better suited to your requirements. Additionally, we are sorry our prices did not meet your expectations; while we do try to always offer the most competitive rates, these can understandably fluctuate depending on demand. Furthermore, we have taken note of your comments regarding your app experience and will ensure to review these with the technical team, thank you for bringing these to our attention. We do also offer fast checkout at the desk, just pass a member of the team your key and we ill send you the email invoice directly. We would love to have you return for another stay soon. Merci, Sally-Ann Jenkinson, Director of Guest Experience
