The Sanctuary is a fairly small hotel over a pub, a couple of minutes from St James' tube station. Hotel entrance is easily accessed off the street with a lift up to reception/rooms. The rooms themselves are fairly spacious, modern, clean and pretty well-equipped - dressing gowns/slippers provided, toiletries, useful hotel-tailored local information, tea/coffee making facilities (no fridge), room safe, bath with shower, although the latter was quite noisy and the screens let water onto the bathroom floor. Room had temperature controls which seemed to work OK to cool the room but not to warm it up, which we needed in February. Don't think the room was double glazed, some noise from passing traffic/pedestrians although the hotel isn't on a busy street. Pleasant and efficient reception. Didn't try the food which is in the pub downstairs.
Certainly a hotel we'd return to; its only detraction for us was that the local tube station is only on the Circle/District line so it's at least one change to get to mainline stations or most attractions.
