Frokosten var bra, og barområdet var flott. Hotellet er 5-stjerner. Det burde ikke ha mere enn 4!
Beliggenheten er helt suveren! Rommet kunne vært større.
Hottellet ga et godt helhetsinntrykk. Beliggenheten er ypperlig til å nå de fleste turistattraksjoner til fots.
Beliggenhet Bedre rutiner for inn ut sjekking, kontroll av forhåndsbetaling/booking, slik at misforståelser ungåes.
We had a lovely week-end stay at the Sofitel London st James.The location is great, staff all very friendly .We had a really nice room and the bed was so comfortable.
Hotel design and great customer service as standard Bathroom toiletories are not to my taste
There are many things that i loved. Amongst it all the location is outstanding. The staff is a ++ The beds are so comfortable Its is just a bliss from a to z It is a bit expensive and my room was more of a regular room than a superior room
Its position It is not true that airconditioning system is controlled from the room. Actutally the system is not strong enough when there is a very warm climate in uk.
Great location to National Gallery, Piccadilly Square, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and gardens. Contemporary style, very comfy bed, staff polite and helpful. Free "slow" internet in the room-it was fast enough! Rain shower head. The shower was a bit small so the splashing water would sometimes puddle on the floor. No other complaints!
Quality modern room with a great rain shower. The beds were luxurious. Light switch was confusing. Need separate switch for the bathroom.
A very friendly hotel
Perfect location for New Year, everything in walking distance, close to Trafalgar Square, easy access to Embankment for fireworks and New Year day parade passed front door...not to mention the hotel festivities, plenty going on in a stylish, refined way. We were only there 24 hours but thanks to location, facilities, easy relaxed feel of the hotel it was the ideal intensive enjoyment hoped for.
excellent hotel, fantastic location, all staff and services very professional!
The staff were very accomodating. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. n/a
Staff very good,great location and good value for money.
Modern elegance this hotel is one of the finest I have stayed in. Contemporary design Incorporated into the old world charm and classic design of the building, The location is superb I really can't get any more central than this. The stuff are wonderful, right down to the doorman, I've stayed there four times in the past six months, and i must say, it's so nice when the doorman greats you and welcomes you back to the hotel.
The location in Leicester Square was very nice, and the hotel seemed to be a popular place to visit. I received the worst treatment possible from the managerial staff. Firstly, even though they had my reservation, which was made and confirmed a month and a half in advance, they decided that they didn't have any room available for me to stay in when I arrived to check in. I found this to be very unprofessional since they could have called me or emailed me prior to my arrival at the hotel to give me a forewarning so that I could plan ahead as well. The situation was worsened by the staff then relaying this information to me in a very condescending manner in which they had the very unapologetic tone of "take it or leave it". Secondly, they decided that a fair way to "compensate" me would be by reserving a room in another hotel on my behalf, without any input from me regarding choice, and then giving me a ride to this new hotel. I specifically chose the W for my stay and did not choose the other hotel when making my initial plans. So, the manager felt he could take the payment for the room at the W, decide that they no longer have a room at the W, then deny me the choice of an alternative hotel, and all without the option of a refund. They said they were compensating me, but I feel that they cheated me greatly. It was terrible customer service. Eventually, I had no choice but to take their offer of staying at the other property, which I didn't want to stay in, since they were not going to make any room available for me at the W for the night. Truthfully, I feel there were a bunch of racial undertones and biases based on the unprofessional, condescending, unempathetic, and unapologetic tone of the manager and staff. I have stayed at many hotels around the world. This has been, by far, my worst experience with any hotel staff regarding a reservation.
Over charger $2k with a forced apology
Terrific location. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. cool, funky vibe. small room (which I liked) The cool location also meant that it was occasionally hard to sleep it night with the noise from the busy street
I really liked the room, it was just enough room for the two of us, and the bed was really comfortable! :) we got upgraded to a room with a window, so that was excellent! The room smelled a bit because of the room not having a working fan after our showers, so there was a lot of condensation in the air left over.
The location was perfect for us. We were taking a weekend break to go to the theatre and shopping. We could walk out of the hotel straight onto the street surrounded by everything we wanted. We were amazed by the excellent use of space within the hotel. It was very compact but well thought through and comfortable. The staff were very polite and helpful. The complimentary wine and cheese was a big plus for us too. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants location in the West End. A little noisy from the street at night but didn't matter too much as it was a leisure break and not business.
The best part of the hotel was it's location. It is located in a great part of London, a very busy part of London. The staff was pretty nice and there were always around to help. Well the worst part of the place was probably the size of the room and the bed. I knew my room would be tiny but for the price I paid it was crazy. The room could barely fit your luggage and yourself. A constant maneuvering around everything. The bed was the worst bed I have ever slept in. Want to know what it is like to sleep on a rock or the ground? Well come to this hotel to find out. This bed was so stiff I would wake up every morning in some sort of back pain. It was ridiculous that this is possible in a modern hotel. It's a budget hotel but seriously just get a slightly softer bed as this was ludicrous.
Location Location Location. Being in the center of town, I had the ability to stop off at Hotel Z to drop off bags, freshen up, take a break before moving on to next neighborhood on my itinerary. Tube stop directly to Heathrow a couple of blocks away made arriving and departing soooo easy. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Room was modern, quiet and clean. DEFINITELY plan on staying again. While I knew I had booked the smallest room, and was happy with it overall, the in ability to open a window for fresh air was a little frustrating. Issues with the a/c were promptly addressed, although an open window would of been a better solution. It was only because my stay was for 5 nights that this bothered me. Next visit I'll book a larger room with an open window. :-)
Everything about this stay was great. The room was beautiful and clean, the bathroom was spacious with lots of shelf space for our stuff. the staff was wonderful. the location is ideal, and they had a big lounge for guests. It's expensive but worth it.
Det har en veldig bra beligenhet, midt i sentrum. Personalet var serviceinnstilt og var alltid blide og hyggelige.
Bra hotell, god standard, men elendig personale. Som sagt elendig personale, Arrogante, trege og alt for dårlig service til det prisnivået.
Var svært bra for oss, kort avstand til shopping, restauranter og opplevelser.
Sentralt hotell med god standard på rommene Det var et forferdelig støv-innhold i lufta der, pga oppussing i hallen,burde vært skjermet mye mer, måtte bare oppholde oss på rommet ! Noen burde opplyst om dette på forhånd, ikke moro å ha med barn der da !Personalet var avmålt høflige, men virket arrogante, og de fant ikke reservasjonen før etter en stund da vi kom. "Are you sure you have come to the right hotel, Sir ?" Tror stedet passer best for forretningsreisende.
Rommene var rene, store og fine! Hotellet var classy, innredning og interiør så utrolig bra ut og service ypperlig. Stort pluss for kaffemaskin, tilgang til datamaskin med gratis internett, tv med de fleste kanaler og musikk/radio. Fant ingen mulighet til å skru på varmekabler i gulvet. Det var iskaldt! Men en varm dusj gjorde susen.
easy access to city the hotel reception staff could not understand english and new very little about the hotel facilities
Considering poor quality of Hotels in England, It was so impressive for me. Very good Location is another plus
Good central location, quiet room. The front door to my bedroom had recently been painted and there was no warning of this. I could easily have ended up with paint on my clothes rather than just my hand. The rooms were small particularly the ensuite
We were upgaded to junior suite which was excellent. Position of hotel is perfect for West end and theatres Internet facilities were not working temporarilly
The hotel was being used for a film crew which limited the use of the hotel facilities.
This is a no-frills property that trades off services for location. Smallest room I have ever stayed in over 30 years, 100+ properties and 5000 nights. The double room was 10x10 (feet) with no phone or closet. No laundry or room service Wake up service is a knock on the door. NOT FOR BUSINESS USE
Beds were very comfortable The 48" flat screen TV was a nice touch The design was nice Definitely a place to stay for short business travel or vacation, given the good location in Piccadilly. The complimentary wine n cheese every evening was nice and my group enjoyed it Located close to many many tourists spots, most with in walking distance or short bus ride. Staff was excellent and very attentive There is only one small lift and often crowded, therefore had to wait for it to come back down empty or you just took the stairs, a minor complaint, but would better if they had two lifts.
The location was great and the first time I stayed the hotel was cleaner. The room is really basic but bed was comfortable. I would never stay here with a second person. The room is good for 1. The have a small check in desk in the middle of the cafe which was crowded when I arrived. I have had to wait for longer than 10 minutes to check in and check out. They seem a little disorganized at the front and could use a proper reception area.
Great location. Wine and cheese hour was a nice bonus TINY room. Barely enough room to move about. Shower head kept moving, it was like showering with a moving sprinkler. Water got into the room as a result because it was so small. The photos are misleading!!
The location was excellent. The design and materials of the room are modern and quality. It was very clean and there was a clear focus on quality. The towels were as soft and huge as any hotel I've been in. the TV was huge relative to the size of the room. The bathroom fixtures were all very nice and the toiletries were also nice. If you are willing to trade a lot of space for a lower price (well, lower price for London) then this can be a value. It's also good if you plan not to spend much time in the hotel as it's comfortable for sleeping. The reason the rooms are affordable is because the rooms are tiny. Seriously tiny...as in your bed spans the whole distance of a wall. There is no closet at all, and unless you get one of the larger rooms you'll have to put your luggage on the floor as there are no luggage racks. That's a bitt of a challenge because the "floor" is really the walkway from the bed area to the bathroom so you'll be walking around your own luggage. If you are a business traveler and need desk space it's very limited or absent. I had one room with a very small desk and another where I had to use the nightstand as a desk. The rooms are relatively dark even if the windows are open because they open to a narrow light well/courtyard. Perhaps there is more light on higher floor levels.
The staff was great, especially Henri & Theo. The staff always went above and beyond to assist us! Location also was amazing; right next to Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Sq, Leicester Sq, close to Parliament Sq, and Buckingham Palace.. Very centrally located The rooms were very small, but it worked out really well for us since we were there only for 3 days. Didn't bother us at all.
Fint hotell med bra beliggenhet. Gangavstand til mange severdheter og shopping. Vi var der i desember før jul med kaldt vær. Kaldt også på hotelrom. Spurte betjening om å få opp varmen på rommet, men det var visst ikke så lett.
Den sentrale beliggenheten, størrelsen på rommet. Dette må selvfølgelig vurderes opp mot en relativt høy pris.
Flott belligenhet, rolig og rent
Sentral beliggenhet, kjøleskap og mikrobølgeovn på rommet, ismaskin i gangen. Intrnett på TV var supert!!! Isolere mot trafikkstøy for rommene som vender ut mot Northumberland Avenue.
Flott, lobby, spisesal, roleg og ordentlig atmosfære. Kjekke kelnere! Vi trengte heis til rullestol, heisen ute verka ikkje godt nok. Personalet gjorde kva dei kunne for å hjelpa, men forståinga for at rullestolbrukarar skal klara seg utan hjelp var ikkje god nok. Det skal seiast at personalet var gode hjelparar.
Beliggenheten er meget god I forhold til det meste I London. Gådistanse til teater og severdigheter. Nærhet til buss og bane/tog. En rimelig frokost for en familie på fem medlemmer. Nok 1000 for frokost blir for mye. Vi var 6 netter på hotellet og spiste frokost på Starbucks til nok 300.
Beliggenhet, lett å finne frem til og sentralt uansett hvor man skulle i byen. Høy standard på både rom og hotellet generelt. Vi valgte forhåndbetaling og fikk en meget gunstig pris. Mykere senger og rimeligere frokost.
hotellet er velholdt personalet var oppmerksom frokosten var god. veldeg fin frokost sal. rommet/suiten var veldig bra. nei
Beliggenheten er helt fantastisk i forhold til shopping, sighseeing og transport med både tog og undergrunn. Til tross for beliggenhet over Charing cross stasjon var det ikke noe støy fra denne. Fine rom med bra størrelse og bra fasiliteter. Vi fikk hjelp med en gang da det var noe galt med toalettet på rommet. Hotellet anbefales og jeg kommer gjerne hit igjen ved en senere anledning. Room service var ikke i hht beskrevet i brosjyren på rommet, noe som var skuffende.
Service instillingen til personalet var veldig bra.Vi hadde gjort en feil ved bestilling og de lot oss bytte med noen andre med et motsatt problem, det ble derfor en vinn- vinn situasjon for ossalle. Beliggenheten var også veldig sentral og passet oss helt glimrende. Dørlås systemet var ikke helt pålitelig, dette var tydeligvis et kjent problematikk det at noen plastkort nøkler ikke alltid virket.
