First stay March 2016. The Stafford is a historic hotel in St. James's. It comes with all the things that typically accompany that description - good service and a sense of esprit de corps among the employees, tiny rooms, and creaky floors. There are some nice positives - the room was mostly quiet, the location is a plus for those...

Reviewed 7 March 2016

The Stafford is, in my opinion, the best place to stay in London. The hotel is just the right size as it is not too big to be impersonal, but not too small to be cramped. The level of service is second to none and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. There is nothing better than relaxing in...

On Friday February 19 my sister and myself had the good fortune to come across a gentleman by the name of Gregory on a London Street. He instinctively knew we needed directions to an establishment in the area. He pointed the way and in turn invited us to visit The American Bar at The Stafford Hotel where he worked. We...

The Stafford is a home from home: an excellent place to stay for a week in London with a business and leisure agenda. The concierge service is outstanding: Chris and the team were able to get us best same-day tickets for the theatre we wanted most to see, on very short notice and a reasonable price which gave us a...

The Stafford hotel is lovely hotel tucked away from the busy city. It has a really relaxing feel about it and we had an extremely comfortable stay.

This hotel, tucked away close to St James's Palace, provides a well-hidden address and ideal venue for a drink with friends, meal or celebration. You are made to feel welcome at the outset with a warm welcome from the doorman, expectant staff ready to assist and a delightful interior rather like that of a gentleman's club. We enjoyed a pre-meal...

I've stayed at the Stafford many times over the last twenty-plus years, most recently in January 2016, and it is my favorite London hotel.

This was one of many stays for me at the Stafford. The hotel is extremely well appointed and the rooms very comfortable. The staff is superb and the hotel amenities top shelf. I find the location ideal. It is away from the bustle of central London but perfectly located for access to all sites.

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.
