Thank you very much for your positive feedback about our restaurant The Balcon.
We are glad to read that you have enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere we have created.

Stayed just one night although the experience was truly wonderful. The hotel is a gem and the rooms are large and the location is second to none. Will be visiting again next time I am in London

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.

Good afternoon, we stayed in room 305 (suite) which consists of bedroom and living room. Both rooms are very spacious and full of light during the daytime. Bedroom has two windows overlooking both Crimean War Memorial (Waterloo Place) and Pall Mall. Hotel kindly arranged extra bed for our daughter in the living room.
