This is a no-frills property that trades off services for location. Smallest room I have ever stayed in over 30 years, 100+ properties and 5000 nights. The double room was 10x10 (feet) with no phone or closet. No laundry or room service Wake up service is a knock on the door. NOT FOR BUSINESS USE
The location was excellent. The design and materials of the room are modern and quality. It was very clean and there was a clear focus on quality. The towels were as soft and huge as any hotel I've been in. the TV was huge relative to the size of the room. The bathroom fixtures were all very nice and the toiletries were also nice. If you are willing to trade a lot of space for a lower price (well, lower price for London) then this can be a value. It's also good if you plan not to spend much time in the hotel as it's comfortable for sleeping. The reason the rooms are affordable is because the rooms are tiny. Seriously tiny...as in your bed spans the whole distance of a wall. There is no closet at all, and unless you get one of the larger rooms you'll have to put your luggage on the floor as there are no luggage racks. That's a bitt of a challenge because the "floor" is really the walkway from the bed area to the bathroom so you'll be walking around your own luggage. If you are a business traveler and need desk space it's very limited or absent. I had one room with a very small desk and another where I had to use the nightstand as a desk. The rooms are relatively dark even if the windows are open because they open to a narrow light well/courtyard. Perhaps there is more light on higher floor levels.
Great location. Wine and cheese hour was a nice bonus TINY room. Barely enough room to move about. Shower head kept moving, it was like showering with a moving sprinkler. Water got into the room as a result because it was so small. The photos are misleading!!
Beds were very comfortable The 48" flat screen TV was a nice touch The design was nice Definitely a place to stay for short business travel or vacation, given the good location in Piccadilly. The complimentary wine n cheese every evening was nice and my group enjoyed it Located close to many many tourists spots, most with in walking distance or short bus ride. Staff was excellent and very attentive There is only one small lift and often crowded, therefore had to wait for it to come back down empty or you just took the stairs, a minor complaint, but would better if they had two lifts.
The staff was great, especially Henri & Theo. The staff always went above and beyond to assist us! Location also was amazing; right next to Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Sq, Leicester Sq, close to Parliament Sq, and Buckingham Palace.. Very centrally located The rooms were very small, but it worked out really well for us since we were there only for 3 days. Didn't bother us at all.
The location was great and the first time I stayed the hotel was cleaner. The room is really basic but bed was comfortable. I would never stay here with a second person. The room is good for 1. The have a small check in desk in the middle of the cafe which was crowded when I arrived. I have had to wait for longer than 10 minutes to check in and check out. They seem a little disorganized at the front and could use a proper reception area.
Location was excellent Rooms were not up to usual Radisson standards, Rooms were very small, bed was too short for tall people.
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 !
Very helpful staff also in a fantastic position for restaurants and shows.
Room was very quiet, despite overlooking Leicester Square. Fabulous location - very central Bed was too small - needed to be longer & wider!
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 way I was welcomed and treated by the staff was superb. The breakfast wasn't particularly tasty (a bit cheap) and coffee was watery.
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.
excellent staff, very keen to please building work very noisy, breakfast expensive
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!
A very friendly hotel
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.
Staff very good,great location and good value for money.
Hotel design and great customer service as standard Bathroom toiletories are not to my taste
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.
There are many things that i loved. Amongst it all the location is outstanding. The staff is a ++ The beds are so comfortable Its is just a bliss from a to z It is a bit expensive and my room was more of a regular room than a superior room
Quality modern room with a great rain shower. The beds were luxurious. Light switch was confusing. Need separate switch for the bathroom.
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
excellent hotel, fantastic location, all staff and services very professional!
The location in Leicester Square was very nice, and the hotel seemed to be a popular place to visit. I received the worst treatment possible from the managerial staff. Firstly, even though they had my reservation, which was made and confirmed a month and a half in advance, they decided that they didn't have any room available for me to stay in when I arrived to check in. I found this to be very unprofessional since they could have called me or emailed me prior to my arrival at the hotel to give me a forewarning so that I could plan ahead as well. The situation was worsened by the staff then relaying this information to me in a very condescending manner in which they had the very unapologetic tone of "take it or leave it". Secondly, they decided that a fair way to "compensate" me would be by reserving a room in another hotel on my behalf, without any input from me regarding choice, and then giving me a ride to this new hotel. I specifically chose the W for my stay and did not choose the other hotel when making my initial plans. So, the manager felt he could take the payment for the room at the W, decide that they no longer have a room at the W, then deny me the choice of an alternative hotel, and all without the option of a refund. They said they were compensating me, but I feel that they cheated me greatly. It was terrible customer service. Eventually, I had no choice but to take their offer of staying at the other property, which I didn't want to stay in, since they were not going to make any room available for me at the W for the night. Truthfully, I feel there were a bunch of racial undertones and biases based on the unprofessional, condescending, unempathetic, and unapologetic tone of the manager and staff. I have stayed at many hotels around the world. This has been, by far, my worst experience with any hotel staff regarding a reservation.
Over charger $2k with a forced apology
Modern elegance this hotel is one of the finest I have stayed in. Contemporary design Incorporated into the old world charm and classic design of the building, The location is superb I really can't get any more central than this. The stuff are wonderful, right down to the doorman, I've stayed there four times in the past six months, and i must say, it's so nice when the doorman greats you and welcomes you back to the hotel.
Great location. Good service. Brilliant rooftop bar.
This little jewel of a hotel is Soho chic. I can't say enough good things about it! It is perfectly located, priced under similar hotels, small enough to be personal but large enough to have a really exceptional restaurant and rooftop bar that appeared to have a London insider following. I say it is the best kept secret in London & would recommend it to anyone! Absolutely nothing!
I liked the rooftop bar. The friendliness of staff. and the champagne cocktails.
Location is just perfect, clean room The room is far too small for its price. Breakfast is poor.
Clean,tidy,pleasant staff Bar drinks highly expensive in hotel....noise form entertainment area above our room was too much for our liking with chairs being dragged across the floors at late hours
Good central location, quiet room. The front door to my bedroom had recently been painted and there was no warning of this. I could easily have ended up with paint on my clothes rather than just my hand. The rooms were small particularly the ensuite
Considering poor quality of Hotels in England, It was so impressive for me. Very good Location is another plus
We were upgaded to junior suite which was excellent. Position of hotel is perfect for West end and theatres Internet facilities were not working temporarilly
The hotel was being used for a film crew which limited the use of the hotel facilities.
easy access to city the hotel reception staff could not understand english and new very little about the hotel facilities
The location and front desk services were very good. The room was cramped, barely adequately furnished and only just met the standard of many 3* hotels I have stayed in, irrespective of the location I feel that this was a very expensive accommodation that did not match the price.
The staff hotel were verry polite except in the FO staff (not at all only a few) Nothing
the hotel was perfectly located for our stay, the beds were really comfortable and the room was very clean. the staff were very efficient but not so friendly, nobody smiled???
the location is perfect. All of the staff except for one,was nice. the room was very small,and we could hear too mutch noise from our nabours nexst door
The room is quite big for center of London and full of light. Clean, with a huge bed. Everything was fine. I will surely enjoy it again when I'll come to london.
Warm, comfortable, excellent decor and very comfortable beds. The staff were friendly and helpful and we greatly enjoyed our stay. No specific problems spring to mind.
Comfortable room, friendly staff, location ideal for Trafalgar Square and theatre land. Seems to be in a back street
The room we got as upgrade. Large, light and with a large bathroom. The central location near Piccadilly Circus. when we arrived they put us in a very small and dingy looking room which was not acceptable in view of the hotel category. When we put this to the reception they upgraded us without problem which was good.
Location In any other location this would have been well overpriced
some facilities are old,and the heating is not working the beds in twin room are put together
location was very central, near few tube stations and the shops. I found the price expensive. We travel over from Ireland 3-4 times a year and would like to stay in the same hotel each time. However I think we will shop around next time.
very near to the theatre area.
Location to Piccadily Circus and Trafalgar Square Staff very cold and unattention, room quite dirty and smelly, internet very slow, room very small and lifts very old.
good location and helpful staff On the booking form i was offered a smoking room which i required, on checking in i was told it was a non smoking hotel so your booking form needs to be altered. This was a disappointment as i had done a lot of groundwork to find a smoking room.
Good location. Very friendly and helpful desk staff. Comfortable bed, No wheelchair access. No support rail (grip rail) at side of bath.
Convienience of nightlife surroundings
hotel staff excellent and position of hotel was just right room very dark, no sun light. no tea coffee fercilities
Everyone at the Every Hotel was very helpful. I've never had a better experience with hotel staff. They helped us get into a room early after 20 hours of travel. They help with cabs, directions, and tube vs. other transportation option. They helped with locating nearby shops and conveniences. The hotel is also comfortable, clean, safe, and centrally located. Some things were not pristine in the bathroom. Overall however, well above average. Much nicer than expected for the price in a city center locale.
location water supply to bath and shower is not acceptable in this modern age
location easy access to where we wanted
Great location - didn't pay for breakfast as other places for breakfast very close by at fraction of price. The room was uncomforably hot which I relayed to reception on departure - the air conditioning did not seem to work at all and windows were locked closed.
I collect foreign coins during my overseas travel. The desk clerk traded my one coin for several smaller denominations -- and when one in the sequence was missing, he even went next door to make change out of his own pocket so that my collection would be complete. I liked the complimentary mini-bar. It was nice to have something for free when most else in the vacation was for charge. The room was very nice. The location was right in the middle of everything -- all within easy walking distance. It was just a few moments from the nearest underground station. It was perhaps a bit more than I had hoped to pay, but overall was satisfactory.
very friendly and relaxing breakfast was not good and expensive
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
The good location of the hotel. The window in the room was boarded up making it very dark.
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!
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.
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.
Hotel staff Room size
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.
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.
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 to fit my itinerary Reception and late night bar with bouncers location, layout
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.
Staff were helpful and friendly. Accommodation was excellent and an ideal base for exploring london.
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 confortable e modern,strategic for fit to visit london
Beautiful hotel. Right in the middle of Trafalgar Square. Charming Cross under ground just a few steps out the door. Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and Westminster Abby just a few short blocks away. Many theaters less then 5 minutes of walking.
Nice hotel in a great location. Room was fantastic....and so was the deal on the room.
very plesant staff
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
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.
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!
Is very close to the interesting point of attraction, like Buckingham Palace,National Galleria.It is in central part of the town but you have quiet.Also is very close to shopping area. The breakfast is good. The rooms are too small, also the bed.
especially the location
An excellent hotel with very pleasant and professional staff. My only minor complaint would be the lovely fruit served at breakfast was too cold and the hot breakfast was self service and not as nice as if cooked to order.
Staff very attentive & helpful. Needed to change room as one allocated initally by reception did not match description on purchase from website.
Hotel breafast room and bar lovely, room a bit small. Hotel staff were not good on arival, first time arrived told could not book in as too early, second time arrived asked us to move to another of their hotels to do them a favour! We said no!!!
good TV no iron in the room
The location in the centre of St.James is excellent. Quiet and understated comfort and luxury.
Helpful and friendly staff The address was a little misleading as the main entrance was around the corner!
Closeness to a lot of major tourist attractions. Service charge. I think it is disgusting that I had to pay 78p for someone to remove two bottle tops.
the location the room is small
