Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We stayed at St James from the 25 the to the 27 th of June.
The Hotel is very well placed with a quick walk to Buckingham Palace and very close to the Tube.
When we arrived reception was busy , however we were quickly taken to a managers desk where we were signed straight in.
The room on the 7 th floor was newly renovated and a great space.
We found the staff very helpful especially the team at the Concierge desk.

Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room

We stayed from 6th to 8th July, came to London to watch Le Tour. The hotel was absolutely perfect, we received a free room upgrade and a complimentary birthday cake delivered to the room. The staff were amazing and really couldn't have been more helpful. The room was lovely, spacious and clean.
We will definitely return again.

Checked in with my child for one night so we could be in close proximity to the main attractions. Pleased with location, accommodation and attentive service of the hotel. Monica took great care of us during check-in and even had a kids pack of goodies on hand. Retired to our room for the night and a surprise tray included a hot chocolate and personalize cookie. Nice touch - brought a smile to my child. :) Buffet breakfast selection was great and staff were always checking to see if we were taken care of. View overlooking the courtyard from our room and was quiet. Bathroom a little small and a few minor chips in the porcelain. Beds were split into twins and had to move one to access the closet. You can't go wrong at all with 2 min walk to St James Park tube station which is the closest and Starbucks immediately opposite entrance. Pret-a-Manger, Greggs plus countless cafes nearby for grabbing 'picnic at the park' supplies. There is also a small shop on the corner, enroute to the Palace to stop and get your backpack beverages for the day. Would return to St James Court again.

Room Tip: #457 was quiet and a nice courtyard view.

we stayed at St. James' Court Hotel 04/07/14 - 06/07/14. everything about this hotel was first class. from the moment we arrived and were received as old freinds, even though this was our fiirst visit, to when we had a late check out. the room was excellent, clean, fresh and well accomadated. even though there was a large wedding on Saturday afternoon and evening the layout of the hotel meant that guests were not disturbed and in fact even after midnight there was no noise from the wedding party's dancing etc. we used the hotels outside bar and also the Hampton bar and the Bistro, the food and service in the Bistro was very, very good and the equal of any accoladed restaurant in London. i was especially pleased with this as i usually do not eat in hotel restaurants with so many on offer very close by. i have stayed in a number of Taj Hotels in India, the standard is extremely high and the St. James' court is their equal.
i would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for quality and service, most people believe such things are in the past, not at the St. James's Court Hotel, it is their normal standard.

This centrally located hotel deserves all the attention of travellers; not only it's a luxury hotel but all the premises are gorgeous; our room was almost a suite and small attentions are waiting for the guests; the restaurant we tried was great too (Bistro 51), also a good option is delicious indian food; an afternoon tea was perfect in the garden, we really enjoyed our stay and would come back soon !

Room Tip: we had a standard double room but its size was almost a junior suite, decoration is very nice;

Just stayed here for a four night break with work and have no concerns in recommending this hotel for a London Break.
The Location is fantastic, 150yrds away from Victoria station, 250yrds away from Buckingham Palace, 100yrd away from Westminster cathedral and 10mins walk from Westminster abbey and House of parliament so its ideal for tourists.

Bonus
Very good efficient and friendly staff, Great during the breakfast period (special thank you to Monika?) for a very good service each morning
Clean and spotless hotel


Negatives
The hotel is classed as a luxury hotel therefore not cheap to stay in ....doesn't need to be that costly.
The rooms are a bit tired and are in need for refurbishment.

I had a bit of an issue during the early hours in which the hotel managed well.

Yes I would stay there again if the price is right.

Room Tip: Ask for room above 3rd level as you can here the rumble of the tube from 3rd floor and below
