Great location, friendly staff
Reviewed 21 hours ago

This hotel is in a great location and within a short walking distance of St James Park underground and Victoria underground. Staff are incredibly friendly, rooms good size (especially the upgraded rooms). The standard rooms are adequate but perhaps dated, the upgraded rooms are lovely. Breakfast was good although some tables were very close to each other (which we avoided). The outside courtyard area is a delightful and relaxing space. The Quilon restaurant next door is excellent, well worth a visit. This hotel is well worth staying at, it could teach some of its high end hotel rivals a few things. We had a great stay, Thank you to all staff.

Great Location and Wonderful Service but only cubbyholes

St James’s Court is almost a heritage hotel. The location in Central London is outstanding. I could easily go for my morning constitutional to St Jame’s Park and also walk to a conference near the Westminster Abbey. Tube stations too are nearby. The Taj Service stands out everywhere.
My only problem with the hotel are its rooms. Mine was a cubbyhole with no windows. It was at an end of an endless and winding corridor. The room seems to be designed to keep the guests outdoors as much as possible!!!

Nice hotel, great service

Hotel was well appointed. The location was just a little south of trafalgar, just off Victoria. Easy walk to st James park, green park, Westminster abbey, Buckingham, Big Ben, eye. You can take the Gatwick express to Victoria and walk from there.
Positives: staff is top notch. All working hard willing to help and very approachable.
Workout room is fine
Breakfast is good as is the afternoon tea. Breakfast can get crowded at certain times but they work hard not to make you wait.
Check in was delayed but they offered us drinks for the few minutes we waited. Service was a positive here
Rooms are fine.
Negatives:
The shower was an open part of the bathroom and if you didn’t prop towels on the edge, water would leak out of the room. We got a disabled room type so not sure if this is common.
We paid in pounds and for some reason the amount hitting our card after conversion was not accurate. The hotel has not been very helpful and has shuffled me to the processing company they deal with. It’s adding about 4%to the bill for no other reason than the exchange rate is less than competitive. I haven’t had this issue come up with other hotels

Perfect location to see London!

We stayed here on the first 3 nights on our honeymoon. We loved the location of this hotel, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We could easily walk to Buckingham palace, Hyde park, Westminster, church hill war rooms etc. When we needed the tube it was a short walk away which was perfect to get to the airport and the national rail services. We will definitely be staying here again!

Lovely place to stay and wonderful staff

This review is to highlight Yannick who did his very best to assist our family upon check-in. Not only was he efficient but extremely hospitable. We needed to get in fast as we had reservations at Kona. He helped us get checked in quickly and went above and beyond in the realm of customer service. This entire staff, including those at Kona, reminded us that some people really do take pride in their work.
