I enjoyed very much this hotel. Everything is high standard and extremely comfortable. Breakfast is rich and the breakfast lounge is cosy. The cigar lounge is very pleasant. Service is outstanding. The location is incomparable.

This is my second stay at The Stafford and I won't stay anywhere else. Our room was extremely comfortable, well thought out and spacious. All areas of the hotel have a small, intimate feel and you really feel that you are in an old fashioned London hotel. It also has a great location in St James's right around the corner...

My family and I had the distinct pleasure of staying 5 nights at The Stafford over spring vacation. The Stafford feels more like a private club than a hotel. The Stafford is the epitome of intimate, first class service wrapped in a beautiful, warm and inviting envelope. From the gorgeous artwork to the cozy furnishings, this hotel far exceeded all...

I absolutely love The Stafford Hotel . It is quite simply the best 5 star hotel in London. Conveniently located between St James' St and Green Park , ideal for anyone visiting London whether that be business or leisure. The famous American Bar is a must visit with a great cigar terrace in a private courtyard. They have just launched...

I got a chance to travel to London after a business trip. I planned to stay at both a British boutique hotel and an American brand name hotel during my three day visit. Stafford caught my eyes because the interior design and concierge awards, and it went beyond my expectation! The room is lovely and cozy. Every detail of the...

My family and I stayed three wonderful nights and enjoyed every minute. The hotel is luxurious, but that's not the hard part, is it? This hotel also had an unbeatable location--a quiet dead-end street with a back passage out to Green Park and Buckingham Palace on one side and easy access to all the West End attractions on the other....

I recently stayed at the Stafford hotel and had a great experience.

Stayed on a Saturday night having "won" a voucher for a night's accommodation in a charity auction. Great location between St. James's and Green Park. Understated but very classy accommodation and service. A noisy aircon unit outside and some building work next door slightly upset the ambience. In the unlikely event I need a central London hotel and can afford...

I have been regularly staying at the Stafford for over 7 years when it was one of the best kept secret of London. However, in the past year or so in turned from one of the best hotels to the worst! The new staff are inexperienced and horribly rude (even to regular guests). They do not care about the service......

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Stafford London is a leading five star hotel in London and defines all that is quintessentially British. Located in the historical neighbourhood of St James's, it is set in a discreet and prestigious location beside the Royal Green Park. Opened as a hotel in 1912 and rich in history since the 1700s, it offers luxurious rooms and dining with an award winning, personalised guest service. The famous American Bar with floor to ceiling memorabilia and 380-year-old wine cellars are a sight to behold. Make sure to ask for a tour of the cellars and the in-house museum; the wine cellars doubled as a bomb shelter during WWII. ... more   less
