Beautiful hotel. Delightful, friendly and professional staff. When we arrived, they immediately provided us with refreshments and invited us to wait in the bar while our room was prepared. They were gracious from the first minute. We were warmly greeted every time we arrived and left the hotel. The staff answered all of my questions and provided me with excellent service at every interaction. The location of the hotel is the best I have ever stayed at in London. It is walking distance to the most fun part of the city and the best shopping. The hotel was so quiet at night. I had the best sleep ever in a hotel. I couldn't be happier and I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in London.

Very Comfortable and Quality Hotel
This hotel is very conveniently situated for Picadilly/Oxford Street and all the major tourist areas. It is a lovely hotel and the staff are very willing to respond to any requests to enhance your stay in the hotel. One example we went into the bar to look for a table but it was full and we were walking out but one of the bar staff came out to see if we wanted a table as he was just preparing the bill for somebody. He got the table ready for us and we hadn't asked anybody, only walked into the bar. The only comment I would have otherwise is that the breakfast menu is a bit complicated. My husband ordered porridge and had the continental breakfast but that was a la carte so made the £19 breakfast go up in price. It was very nice porridge though. Eggs are out but are not included in the continental breakfast. The room was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable as you would hope for a hotel of this quality. A very enjoyable stay.

Fabulous hotel, staff, and location
Oct 2017 - we just got back from our stay at the Sofitel and it really was the most wonderful Hotel. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. They were always extremely pleasant. Also the location can't be beat. It's right near Piccadilly Circus and walking distance to many desirable sightseeing locations. It is also only two blocks from the Piccadilly Circus tube station. The hotel staff became aware that we were there celebrating our 20th anniversary, and surprised us with a beautiful chocolate tart and tea one afternoon which was waiting for us in our hotel room. The small little touches like the turndown service which included setting comfy slippers next to each side of our bed, as well as providing herbal tea at the end of the day on our bedside tables made experience even more special. I highly recommend this hotel.

Upon arrival which was super early in the am, 0800 to be exact I was offered a shower in the Hotel Gym. It was great and I really needed it. The building itself is perfectly located in central London literally a block off the Pall Mall and three blocks from Buckingham Palace. It was a London Heatwave the entire week but luckily my room managed to be cool the entire stay. Amenities were fabulous, Hermes toiletries and turn down serve and the bed was very comfortable. I asked for a quiet room and that is what I got. I was visiting my college aged Son while I was there so we did lots of walking and averaged 7 miles a day so I often returned back to my room for a mid day nap and recharge, Staff will leave you alone once you post the do not disturb signal at your door. The rain shower and GIGANTIC bathtub were very much appreciated. The room was always spotless as well, I did use the bar, which was great and the restaurant as well and they were both fantastic.Overall I LOVED it and will stay again in the future.

Very good 8.0
great location near Trafalgar Square
We had a Jr Suite. Was inconvenient as there were no outlets for hair dryer in bathroom. Had to dry hair in sofa and chair area of suite-----and there the lighting was poor so had to go back to bathroom to check hair! Breakfasts were excellent and staff attentive except for missing doorman on day it was pouring rain. Had to exit taxi and get inside on my own. All in all, for a pricey room, it should have been better.
