Overview

Sofitel London St James offers five-star accommodation in the heart of London's West End. This landmark hotel - consistently rated as one of the best in London - combines traditional British design with contemporary style that is unmistakably French. Located in a grade II listed building, the hotel features a restaurant, The Balcon, The Rose Lounge, the St James Bar, a large choice of conference suites and an award-winning spa. Sofitel London St James is an entirely smoke-free hotel.

Dining

THE ROSE LOUNGE
Fresh roses and live harp music are the backdrop to this cozy London restaurant and tea lounge, a pretty space of plump seats in vivid pink and red. Afternoon tea or champagne are the perfect accompaniments to quiet conversation or browsing the library.
THE BALCON
French and British cuisine meet at this lively London restaurant with unexpected touches: charcuterie of Welsh and French meats, a private dining room behind silk curtains, a champagne tasting table reached by oak spiral stairs.
ST JAMES BAR
An extensive list of wines and spirits is served alongside cocktails and exclusive champagnes in this quietly cozy London bar. Accompany your tipple of choice with a tasty snack or French-inspired plates like homemade foie gras terrine.

Nice hotel, good location

Would recommend Tue, Jun 16, 2015
Really nice hotel. Although the breakfast was a little pricy, it was really good quality and we highly enjoyed it. We stopped in at the bar one night for a glass of wine and the wine selections were quite good as well. Definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for a luxurious vacation.

Second stay, exceeded expectations both times.

Would recommend Wed, Feb 19, 2014
Spent a week in Jan 14 and was truly impressed by the hotel and staff so I chose this hotel again when I needed to be in London for another 5 days in Feb. Again, the staff was exceptional in all areas (reception, porters, bar, housekeeping). The hotel size is more intimate, which I believe allows for better service. I opted for a larger room both stays and in both cases it was very comfortable. This time my room had a mini espresso machine which was a nice surprise. I have stayed at three different Park Lane hotels previously and found the location of the Sofitel St. James to be much better. Steps from several theaters, Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, countless restaurants and shopping. It will be my first choice again when returning to London.

Would recommend Sat, Jul 6, 2013
Great hotel right in the middle of St. James. The staff was most helpful and the bar is superb.

Entertainment hint

Great theaters are all around. But book your own ticket. The concierge here uses a service that charges an extra 20 pounds.

stayed at Sofitel St. James for two nights in July 2012. location could not have been better. Picadilly lane (Subway or Tube) station was only 3 min. walk, and the park was only 5 min. walk or less. if this is your first time in london, this is the hotel you want to stay at!

Very Luxurious Hotel

Would recommend Sat, Feb 26, 2011
This hotel was in the perfect location. It was by the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly, Leicester Square, and Trafalgar Square. It was within walking distance to many sights like the National Gallery, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham Palace. There were a couple of tube stations within walking distance so it was easy to get everywhere. The staff was also very helpful and friendly. They would take your luggage right away, showed how everything worked in the room, and made sure we had a taxi when we were leaving. I would definitely stay here again!
