Fantastic stay, amazing location and very comfortable family rooms!
We needed to have a family escapade and decided to book the St James Court Taj hotel for 3 nights and we just loved it! The hotel is perfectly located, very close to Buckingham Palace and all the big/beautiful royal parks... 15 min walk from the Big Ben as well! The service was great, our 2 kids got some amenities that they loved. The family room was very comfortable with 2 separate rooms and toilets... Room service fantastic as well. My only comment is that I should have asked for a bigger cot for my little one as it was too small, but I'm sure they would have accommodated... She slept with us in the extra large bed at the end :). 100% recommended!

Friendly and great location
Lovely staff and a wonderful location. The only downside for me was that, during Covid rules, cooked breakfast only started at 8:15 and I had to leave by 7:45. A selection of pastries was available before but as a Gluten Free person of some 35 years that didn’t work for me.
