Excellent, well equipped room, friendly, helpful staff, good and not expensive (by London standards) breakfasts, quiet but in a very good location. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

I went to afternoon tea at the St James Rose Lounge & Bar with 4 friends and we had a wonderful experience. The good was absolutely delicious, the harp player fantastic and the staff unparalleled. I have some food allergies and they were so accommodating and thoughtful. I was particularly impressed with Oyo and Greg who provided outstanding service.

If you're looking for a great afternoon of tea and delicious w/ friends and or family, I highly recommend this place!!!

With so many hotel choices in London, I had never considers fthis hotel. It ended up being a last m ute choice (limited availability), but it turned out to be a nice choice.
The location is great, in the middle of everything. The rock we ere nicely decorated and we had a nice marble bathroom with separate tub and shower.
Serve was friendly, and we had tea at the rose lounge, it was very enjoyable and resnably priced.
This hotel is a solid choice for a lower price in London, would definitely recommended as a nice alternative to more expensive properties.

Our friends have been visitors here for years and we decided to have a change. We usually stay at the Intercontinental in Park Lane which we love. We were glad we did. Fantastic location just a few mins walk from Picadilly Circus. We stayed using our Avios points and we still received fantastic service and a lovely room. Fabulous comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom with deprecate shower. The bar was great for a pre dinner cocktail and still had great vibe for a nightcap at midnight. Breakfast was delicious and the choice excellent. We will be back.
