In a country that values understatement, St. James' Court is an English classic typifying the concealed charm of one of Britain's finest hotels. The custom of St. James’ Court, A Taj Hotel is the distinctive choice for more than service with a smile. With a distinguished pedigree shaped over more than a century, this discreet Victorian masterpiece with its famous Shakespearean Courtyard is perfectly placed between Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament in a historic enclave marking the centre of power. Crisp and elegant, with an easy charm that’s reserved, yet attentive, we strive to make each visit more pleasurable and memorable. Exceeding the expectations of today’s discerning traveller, St. James' Court is a slice of the past served up on a contemporary platter.

Overrated, miserable experience. Very badly managed hotel. Please don’t fall for flashy pictures as advertised. Basic Indian food is also not available here. Unprofessional and extremely rude staff. This is a very nice heritage property but extremely mismanaged.

Will definitely be coming back. Shout out to Amin on reception he was very helpful and informative. Great location too!

Awful customer service for the price. They never pick up the phone, had no reliable internet, did not provide room cleaning services, AND the best part was, they wanted to charge £5 for a fork! And when we asked to talk to the manager to explain this brilliant policy, we were ignored and they did not call back. Net net, an impressive waste of money on sub-par accomodation.

Once again thank to Gagan and his dream team for flawless customer service as always. One of the best hotels in London, like they say to feel the Tajness one has to experience this Atleast once
