Lovely Hotel-Highly recommend.
The two best things about this hotel are the location and the excellent service from every single employee I had the pleasure of interacting with. You are near most of the major London attractions (less than half hour walk), but also very close to the St James Park and Victoria Underground stations for venturing further out. I want to especially call out the Concierge and front of the house services. They managed to be both readily available with assistance without being overbearing. Wi-Fi was hands down the best I have ever had at any hotel. As some other commenters have stated, there are some rooms with less than up to date conditions. Our room (438) was spacious and had a lovely view of the courtyard. Our only complaint from our 9 day stay at the Taj was with the bathroom. The spigots in both the sink and bathtub looked like there were decades old and the shower head was in terrible condition. Minor inconveniences obviously. One tip for those staying at this hotel, make sure you tell any cab driver you want to go to the "Taj" and not the St James Court Hotel. They may have no idea what the latter is and you may end up far from your intended destination.

I only stayed here for one night due to my connection flight canceled. I have to rebook my flight. This hotel is great!! Location is unbeatable! In the central of London but located in a quiet area!! You can easily go to many tourist sites. Breakfast buffet is awesome! You can order your omelette! Service is awesome. Because I did not plan to come to UK, I did not bring UK connector. The front desk quickly give me one! They also provide me a voucher for tea and coffee when I’m waiting my room — I book the room just one hour before I arrived. Room is big enough for London base.
