Sofitel London St James: A late summer staycation review

Updated: Aug 6, 2019

We stayed in Sofitel London St James when we came back from our holiday in Rome and Venice. The Luxury Hotel is located within a few minute walk from landmarks, specifically 3 minutes walk from Piccadilly Circus, 5 minutes from Trafalgar Square, and 10 minute walk to the Buckingham palace, and about 20 minute walk to Victoria Station. It was very convenient to stay in this hotel and wonder around London. We were greeted by friendly staff and were given welcome drinks. The aroma in the hotel is so calming and I was loving it. The staff helped us with our luggages and was taken to our premium luxury room.



First check done -- room tour and inspection. Love the facilities in the premium luxury room especially the very comfortable bedsheets, the view outside the window which is either waterloo place or the mall, the sofa bed which is just what i needed to relax, and the huge bathroom.




The bathroom was equipped with luxury Hermes toileries, i could live in that bath tub forever, seriously. It was so grand. There was an overhead shower too.



We then went out for some ehem, shopping, in Oxford Street, then to Chinatown to have some food -- both of which are just few minutes walk from the hotel. When we came back in the hotel in that evening, our beds were made ready to sleep, sheets opened like royalty, very soft slippers were by the floor ready to use, and some delicious chamomile tea waiting to be used located by the bedside.



We switched on the huge tv and was very glad to found out of the personalized interface by the homescreen.



We had a very good rest after a week of travelling. It was soundproof even if the location of the hotel is very central.



We went to the Balcon (the restaurant downstairs) to find a complete range of breakfast meals served as a buffet type. And oh, the interior design of the restaurant is so beautiful. There was a winding stairs leading to a wine cellar too. The food was amazing and we were ready to start our day.





We stayed in Sofitel London for 2 nights and we can say that it was a perfect decision to stay here. We feel rejuvenated and ready to face another travels. The service in this hotel is impeccable. We received a few checks as well from the staff if everything is ok, and a gentle reminder that they are there if needed with anything. Checkout was smooth too. Overall verdict is highly recommended. 10/10 for service. 10/10 for comfort, cleanliness and safety. 10/10 design. 10/10 for food. It was a perfect stay.
