Opened in 1902, St. James’ Court, A Taj Hotel, London has retained its historic charm over the decades thanks to outstanding hospitality and a thoroughly discreet yet central location. The hotel was once frequented by guests of Buckingham Palace, and today the dedicated staff work to deliver a royal experience for all who pass through.
Amenities and Services
The rooms in this Taj hotel alternate between quintessentially English (ask for a "Classic" room) and ultimately contemporary (in all "Executive" rooms and suites). All guestrooms offer views over either Westminster or the St. James’ Courtyard. This one-of-a-kind courtyard, with a magnificent central fountain, is a draw for all travelers, but particularly those looking to host a sophisticated function. The hotel is fully equipped for conferences and banquets and boasts the UK’s only publicly available Telepresence facility. A wellness and fitness center on-site provide a gateway to health and relaxation. And both visitors and residents of London alike flock to the St. James’ Court Hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Quilon.

Room was not clean, bathroom had mold on walls, stains on carpet. Too noisy, could clearly hear people on room above walking & using restroom.
Very attentive and friendly staff. Great restaurants and Spa inside the hotel. Spacious and well equiped rooms. Great location close to Victoria station (ideal when you fly into Gatwick), in walking disctance from the tube, Westminster, St. James' park and Buckingham palace.
First room we were given (#352) had a lot of noise from the subway passing underneath, despite the fact that we had explicitly asked for a quiet room! From the second night on we got a very quiet room.
Enjoyed our store and appreciated the beautiful court yard in the hotel as well as the complimentary breakfast. Having stayed at multiple hotels in London, this one was the best value
Location location location staff was well I tune with my needs (where to go what to do) and they were very attentive to making my stay comfortable
They ask me to pay for internet acces, but the problem was solved.
Central location, impressive lobby, excellent choice of breakfast items
Room was small in size and the bathroom was impossible to navigate if there was more than one of you or if bigger than a size 18! It mcant have measured more than 1.5m x 1.5m and was only really handy if you needed to use the toilet and sink at the same time. The room 681 was miles away from the lifts and instead you had to cross the courtyard whenever you wanted to leave the hotel or go to reception - not ideal when it's raining.
Nice and quiet, relaxed atmosphere
Room very warn dispite air conditioning
Sasha the bartender was great as were all the other staff that we met. Everyone was extremely friendly and made our stay very enjoyable.
