Stayed with my wife for 3 nights , February 19th to the 22nd. This is around our 10th stay at this Sofitel over the last few years. Overall, the experience has been very positive and I do not think you can do any better in central London for this location and price range. The new breakfast/restaurant revamp has made it a lot smoother but I am a bit nostalgic for the old breakfast with its dizzying array of choices both as buffet and to order. You had to allow a good 40 mins to an hour for the experience but it was worth the wait. Still, the new breakfast format is still outstanding by any standards. Overall ,the service manages to be efficient and friendly without being obtrusive., the staff are very attentive and efficient when you need without being too forward. On nearly every visit we have had different rooms, sometimes upgrades, overall, in my opinion the rooms at the back on the higher floors are the best. As with all central London hotels, the rooms are small but they are very well equipped, the beds are super comfortable and usually quiet. The bar has a very pleasant ambiance and is the perfect place to enjoy an evening aperitif. Ususally we use the opportunity to explore other restaurants in London but on the couple of occasions we had dinner in the restaurant we found it excellent and a perfect option if you are tired and fancy a quiet relaxing evening in the hotel.
