The way I was welcomed and treated by the staff was superb. The breakfast wasn't particularly tasty (a bit cheap) and coffee was watery.
Room was very quiet, despite overlooking Leicester Square. Fabulous location - very central Bed was too small - needed to be longer & wider!
The hotel is located right in the centre of London,ideal for theatres and shopping and the staff were particularly friendly and helpful, Rather expensive !
Location was excellent Rooms were not up to usual Radisson standards, Rooms were very small, bed was too short for tall people.
Very helpful staff also in a fantastic position for restaurants and shows.
excellent staff, very keen to please building work very noisy, breakfast expensive
The Location There was a queue for breakfast. Also it was difficult to understand the English spoken by the staff.
location the lifts were awful
For those that wish to make the most of going out in London during the evening, the hotel is the ideal location.Staff were very welcoming, at time a little too much.
The service and kind staff. 1. We booked a junior suite with "great view over London" and added to our booking request that this view was of the essence. The junior suite did not have such a view and the staff told us that no junior suite has such a view. Other rooms do. We feel mislead because an important part of the reason why we booked an expensive hotel/room was the view. 2. The hotel did not answer any of our 3 e-mails over a period of 2 months. 3. We called the hotel in order to double check our reservation. The reservation was not found and the hotel would call us back. They did not so we had to call them back.
The courtesy of the staff was very good and one was made to feel nothing was a bother. The room was very comfortable. There was a fair amount of outside street noise in the room which took a night to get used to.
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
Hotel design and great customer service as standard Bathroom toiletories are not to my taste
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!
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.
The staff were very accomodating. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. n/a
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.
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.
Staff very good,great location and good value for money.
excellent hotel, fantastic location, all staff and services very professional!
The rooms were comfortable and we had a lovely view of the river and the lighted ferris wheel. The staff were courteous, professional, and responsive. The location is great. The concierge was quite helpful. Breakfast was great but if we had not obtained a good price including breakfast, the a la carte cost of adding on breakfast would not have been worth it. The hotel is lovely and we hope to stay there again. For about half of our stay the hotel telephone system was not working. The sink in one of our rooms was quite high and uncomfortable for our elder and short relative.
Overall stay was very comfortable except there was a very loud wedding party on Saturday night that didn't end till past 1:00am, but the hotel gave me a very generous discount for that night. Would also have liked more overhead lighting because the atmosphere in the room was rather dim!
Location is perfect for the theater district. Staff is very friendly and accommodating indeed. Hotel is very elegant, a bit formal. Could be intimidating for a tourist from the US west. Got a good room rate, but drinks, tea, and breakfast were as expensive as you'd expect from a 5 star central London hotel. We ended up changing our room twice -- the first time at the suggestion of the bellman, because it didn't have any view. The second room had a view but was way smaller than the other, and had no bath tub. We were moved a third time at our request and got a wonderful room (but without a river view). The staff made both moves very easy indeed.
Everyone is polite and not overbearing. The room although we felt is was quite small it was peaceful and very clean. The only point was a dirty wet cloth left on the wardrobe shelve which was a little unpleasant,
The room was fantastic with view over the Thames, Bed very good and quite and the Hotel is tucked out of the way but in easy access to all of London We did not get a warm welcome at reception, They tried to put us in 2 single beds when I had booked river view doudle. They would not take my word so I had to go back to the car to get our booking. It is also hard to get a cab from this hotel.
good location, good service
The location was excellent. The room and bathroom were very nice.
It would be a good 4 star hotel. good heating and hot showers. food was barely edible, always stale. reception service is appalling. In desperate need of refurbishment, old TVs, design. It was just a bed and a bathroom, not a 5 star hotel.
Peaceful room and comfortable beds. Harp being played as we arrived. Good location. We were needing a relaxing night before travelling to Lyon through the French rail strikes and we awoke refreshed and content. Thanks! Decor a bit over ornate in places. (Ribbons over pictures etc). Not much in fridge except someones left over lunch. Quite a surprise!
The welcome and service of all the staff. Everyone especially the Hungarian gentleman bent over backwards to make an extra effort every single time I approached them. More likely they approached me quicker, to help with my pushchair and baby. They were polite and fantastic. Your real asset!! The towels had an awful smell (I have a sensitive nose). My room was no 847. When I enetered the room I could smell the pigeons in fact I looked at the window sill and sure enough there was pigeon poo - and the windows hadn't been cleaned in some time? There was no child quilt / blanket provided with the cot (and, although the cot was provided, I had to ask for this to be made). The staff could be taught level one english.
rooms spacious and very clean. staff very helpful and friendly. well situated for site seeing and close commuting facilities to explore the rest of london. no spa facilities that i was made aware of.
Good service Great location Breakfast buffet same everyday. Not much selection for 5 star luxury hotel. I stayed 13 nights and every morning same small selection of breakfast. There should be a lot more selection .
Hotel position excellent Room reasonably quiet, comfortable bed Ordered newspaper not delivered. No verbal explanation given after fire alarm evacuation at 06.00. Poor understanding of English shown by some reception staff.
The location is excellent, being right above Charring Cross Station and within walking distance to all the West End theatres. The hotel itself is very nice and our room was great. Breakfast was also nice, with gluten-free bread offered to my girlfriend. Upon arrival at 1.45 pm we were offered an upgrade to a junior suite for an extra 50 pounds. We accepted but wanted to check in straight away as we had a theatre show at 3.30 pm. Reception said the room would be ready in 10 mins. We finally got into the room at 2.45 - unacceptable! The bottle of wine that was offered upon the upgrade was also not delivered until later I asked about it. Given we were in a hurry to get ready and get to the show I didn't have time to make a big deal of it. When asked we were given a late checkout, 1pm instead of 12, which was something I guess. But I definitely got the impression the reception staff did not care at all about the customer and were merely chasing extra dollars from the customer.
The hotel had just the perfect location for us, situated as it was within a 10-minute walk of Leicester Square, Soho, Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery, St Martins-in-the-Field, Covent Garden, The Strand, and so much more. Our room was on the 3rd floor, directly above the entrance to Charing Cross Station and practically overlooking Trafalgar Square. Amazingly, we could hardly ever hear a sound from outside! The windows had great soundproofing, I guess. The only sounds that appeared to get through were when the street musicians played amplified guitars at night, and they seemed to stop at a decent hour so it wasn't all that disruptive. Staff were always friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable with all modern conveniences including a soothing rainwater shower with plenty of hot water. The complimentary minibar was a nice surprise, too.
Fantasic offer of an upgrade to a junior suite for just £35 incl bottle of wine and a great room with lots of extra space. Made the stay even more enjoyable. Superb location, friendly staff 10/10 :)
the good location and the cleanliness and comfort of the room
The staff were very polite and friendly and the candles and decorations around the hotel were beautiful giving it a romantic atmosphere. The bed and room were very comfortable. Our room was next to a side street with trucks arriving very early with deliveries and it was noisy! And our phone rang every 30 minutes from around 8am (we were too tired to figure out why!) And the attendant walked into our room at around 9am even though we had locked the door and put the latch on.
Clean, recently refurbished. Great location for the west end Rooms are quite small (no difference to most London Hotels)
The greeting on reception The restaurant facility, the food was excellent the service was very badly organised
Central location, room size.
Wonderful location. No complaints. Would stay again or recommend to others.
The staff are friendly helpful and show a wide variation of knowledge of the city hotel is clean and the candles in the evening are a nice touch Xmas tree lovely.
Great Location with helpful staff breakfast not included, elevator system was a problem and bathroom wasn´t very clear.
Location superb! The hotel is tired and old. My room was small, tatty and very cold (wind blowing in through the old wood framed windows). I won't stay here again.
Just the most fantastic central position - easy to walk Covent Garden, Piccadilly, Regent St room was starting to look a bit tired furnishings wisw
great city centre location friendly staff lovely room
Central Posiition to visit London Very small Bedroom
location was great....charming hotel...and very comfortable room
Location was excellent, it is about 30 footsteps from the hotel till the one of theatres. view from the window was poor, smell in the room.
Hotel location is key for seeing all theatre; either side of the Thames.
Polite and helpful staff and location close to where I was going out I could not at first work the lift nor put the lights on in my room because I did not know I had to put my room card in the slot. The sign in the lift is not noticeable enogh and n arrival I went up and down a few times before giving up and using the stairs. Next time I wil know.
The Hotel staff we very friendly and helpful. I found the price of the Hotel fair considering the style and location. Howvever I feel the Hotel could benefit from being updated. Also i found the gym facilities disappointing.
Great staff. Superb location. Room upgrade. Cosy bar. Staff turnover appears low, nice to see some of the same faces. Afternoon tea reliable. Tea was always hot. On line check in sketchy. A/c noisy Tea bags missing in room Turn down service was intermittent
Loved the location. Room was small but very comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly Quire pricey but then it is London
Location. There is nothing to say about the hotel, is normal 4* hotel, nothing to complain but nothing to admire. Nice bar. I was staying alone in double room, for one it was ok. for two would be definately small.
Excellent location - ideal for tourist areas and located very close to Waterloo.
Location . Dislike. Booked non smoking big room with kitchen.Was given smoking room ( as if they just had held a smoking party).Eventually offered a non smoking room but much smaller and w/o kitchen . No reduction in rate ! This is truly a quarters but not hotel !
The fact that the staff were friendly and that the hotel was a reasonable price Only that we were unable to have a drink brought to our room after 11pm even though we asked about this previously and were told it was a 24hr service.
Quality comfortable accomodation in central london at a fair price. The relationship between Club Quarters,The Grand and The Northumberland was a little confusing.
Perfect location for us. Minimum fuss. Good room and bathroom with everything we needed. The card check-in system and the lift operated by card - not obvious which way to do it and everyone we met felt the same. Needs rethinking
Location is excellent, v close to Charing Cross and Embankment underground stations and walking distance to Leicester Square and Covent Garden. Bathroom small-ish and towels were old but functional. Shower was reasonably strong and water was hot.
Decent sized rooms for London. Clean and well run. Very close to Embankment tube station. Slightly touristy part of town.
Excellent location, polite, helpful staff, well appointed rooms.
Good location, good facilities, helpful and polite staff One of the lifts out of order on arrival caused a bit of a problem and about a 15 minute wait. To be fair it was fixed by the next day.
Service and the personal very nice food very good Aurel & Tabita Musca Will be nice that in price of the hotel to be include free breakfast
Design, city center location and friendly professional staff Internet connection ( slow ), airco on rooms did not work well
the restaurant concept, staff and service. breakfast - not clear information about the prices and poor value for money regarding breakfast. the films in the elevator - freeky.
Location, Design hotel Food is always getting less and less ( before there was steak, there was asian boxes ... ).
Great location. Nice hotel. Concierge always has solid recommendations. Good service. Love the room. Everything is modern with a lot of little touches. USB phone charger at the bed, Bluetooth for your music. I've been here 3 or 4 times and will go back! Currently remodeling. Shower leaked ....
This hotel is in the best location for theater, restaurants, shopping and art. We were two couples and had the best time. Everything was perfect
Unable to open windows and air conditioning is noisy and suffocating.
A very modern hotel in a fantastic central location. The room was small but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. No coffee/tea making facilities in the room. Refused entry to the Light Bar because we hadn't booked - since when did you have to book to have a drink in a bar? This also meant we couldn't actually use the vouchers for the complimentary cocktails!
Good location, friendly staff, stylish rooms
I am a Global Member; this is the reason I continue to stay at this gorgeous hotel in a city full of gorgeous hotels.
The staff were A1 and very helpful and the manager Jose was very proffesional Maybe a little too dark in the lift and l could not see the buttons to push
A different experience. The staff greeted me by my first name which I like a lot. Interior design is cool, I loved candles in the bathroom. Couldn't log on to the Internet with my iPad although I was charged the Internet service - which was advertised as free upon booking :-(
Staff was really friendly and ready to help.
Everything was perfect
Excellent location, very friendly staff, nice clean rooms.
The room was just big enough and was practical. The bathroom was excellent. TV was provided. I would like to be able to make more than 2 cups of tea or coffee! I take sugar and that was in limited supply.
the hotel is so close to the theatres on the Strand and Covent Garden, it makes it so convenient. There was nothing I didn't like but thought the £8 charge for an ice bucket from room service was a bit steep!
This is the best location in London, steps from Covent Garden, an easy walk across the Waterloo Bridge, convenient to theaters. Thanks to recent renovations, rooms are contemporary and comfortable; staff is friendly and helpful. I have been staying here off and on for more than 25 years! The food continues to be marginal at best, and not a good value for the money. Fortunately, there are many good and reasonably-priced restaurants nearby.
Service was excellent, especially Francesco who made us welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. The hotel was extremely clean and very close to the metro station and Trafalgar Square Room was on the small side.
Very central location, good value for money
I liked the location, and the clean, bright room that had good bathroom space and a reasonable work surface. Similarly priced rooms in London are often very cramped and/or quite worn down. a really nice (and necessary, in our case) feature of the room is the sliding solid wood shutters that completely seal off outside light. This was my third or fourth stay at the sph. The weatherstripping around the windows was completely shot and ineffective, so if we had the shutters open, a powerful draft whipped through the room. There was a cold snap in London at the time, so the result was that we couldn't open the shutters and curtains to enjoy daylight. Also, as our room was over The Strand, it was very noisy at night. However, I would definitely stay again
location was excellent The room should be renewed as soon as possible. They sold the London of map. It should be free of charge.
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. :-)
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.
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.
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
Location is excelente!! Great to be able to have a swim in the morning. Rooms on the small side, although adequate. Breakfast was again adequate rather then excelente as would expect from this hotel.
All staff were extremely friendly and helpful Quite a lot of noise from outside late at night - sounded like work was going on close by
Location, center of London, near Piccadilly Circus. Easy to reach by Sub. Small room for this kind of hotel, no air conditionning. Price for English breakfeast too high.
great location, the club lounge was great with snacks most of the day, the pool, very big room windows were small and looked straight into the walls of another building so you could only just about see the sky and the room was very dark. bathrooms a little dated. One of the consigners was rather snooty and not very approachable
Hotel staff Room size
The good location of the hotel. The window in the room was boarded up making it very dark.
Excellent breakfast, very kind personnell, very nice swimming pool. Location is excellent, very close to Buckingham Palace, Green Park, Regent Street, Oxford street. İt is in the heart of London. Building is facinating. Bathroom is very small. The room does not fit to 5 star hotel although it is very clean and has comfortable beds. The room is smaller than I expected.
very friendly and relaxing breakfast was not good and expensive
swimming pool was great.such a great location. friendly staff. our room was quite small.noisy at night.service charge on a glass of wine nearlly £1!
9th floor rooms are very bad.we asked to change the room to lower floor that was o.k.bathroom fittings are very old and smells and it is not woth spending so much money to stay in such a hotel.no place to sir in lobby.
Service and breakfast- facilities especially roof terrace and views available from roof terrace-location was excellent The room was small and the window could not be opened
The lobby lounge, the Terrace upstairs, the service, the location. Very nice indeed!!! Front Desk staff was very helpful. One of the main attractions of the Hotel is the Roof Terrace and during our first night, it was closed due to a private event. That should not happen during Saturdays. big disappointment! I also do not like interior rooms. I am claustrophobic and try to avoid these rooms. Room service selection after 10:30 pm.
Always someone willing to help with a query and nothing too much trouble Some inconsistencies with communication. Phoned down to reserve meal Sunday night, but later found that restaurant closed on Sundays.
Nice big room with modern fittings and bathroom Reception / Bar area altogether, bar is full on with DJ etc, which can be a bit disconcerting when checking in. No public areas to chill in evening.
Location to fit my itinerary Reception and late night bar with bouncers location, layout
Location confortable e modern,strategic for fit to visit london
very plesant staff
Nice hotel in a great location. Room was fantastic....and so was the deal on the room.
Very central location, with easy access to the west end. The staff were very helpful. The hotel was overpriced for the ammenties, and our room was very claustraphobic due to overlooking a very close office block, not a "great" view!
Staff were helpful and friendly. Accommodation was excellent and an ideal base for exploring london.
