Hidden gem in Pall Mall Great find. A small hotel but up there with the very best! The staff are welcoming and friendly. Looking out to help you all the time. My room. (Junior suite), was beautify designed and extremely comfortable. I would imagine this would be the perfect venue for a London treat weekend.

We stayed at this place in summer of 2015. The hotel is located in St James neighborhood. Close to Buckingham palace and all the nice attractions. Very quiet and serene place yet close to all of the action. Service was excellent. Will go back any time.

Totally enjoyable stay. Very Central for London, eating, sightseeing, would highly recommend. If staying at the Hotel, you must see the Wine Cellars, absolutely spectacular and full of history. Good place to stay if you are travelling from abroad, you will love the history of this fabulous hotel!

The Stafford is a most excellent place to spend your London holiday. The rooms are cozy and lovely. The bathrooms are very modern, clean and large. The restaurant serves a bountiful breakfast and delightful afternoon tea. The location is wonderful- walking distance to attractions, the tube and great shopping choices and dining options. The service is most excellent. The 24... More

I have been staying at the Stafford London many times for the last 35 years or so and have always felt at home. The staff gives me the feeling to be personally welcome and taken care of, some of them having been around for years. IT is a safe place with respect to quality, elegance and convenience.

I work in the West End so knew and loved the American Bar of the hotel, but arranged for my family to stay to see a show I was in and was blown away by the quality of the Stafford's rooms, the attention to detail and comfort and by staff who couldn't have been more helpful and charming - it...

From the moment you arrive at the Stafford you are treated as a most-welcomed guest. The staff is friendly but always professional, with the best concierge team (Brett, Peter and Fernando) in London. Every guest is made to feel valued, The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the location cannot be topped. I cannot recommend highly enough.

The hotel was a historical residence of the Lyttelton & Spencer family going back to the 17th Century. Near the location are residences, office space and embassies; it has a neighborhood feel and is very quiet. It is a great location near Buckingham Palace and St James Palace, Piccadilly Street shops such as Fortnum & Mason and many restaurants. For... More

Tucked away off St James St it feels quiet and private with a beautiful facade. Stayed in the main building and the room was very nice - bathroom was modern and spacious with a separate bath and shower (the shower was excellent). The staff and level of service were excellent! Room was missing the in-room dining menu. The American Bar... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood 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.
