Small, historic, elegant. The rooms are traditional & elegant. They are small but have everything that is needed. The beds are extremely comfortable; the rooms are independently heated/cooled; the bathrooms have large baths. The hotel offers good, although not excellent, meals. It is in walking distance of all of St. James and Mayfair.

Unique Setting Next to Green park, tucked away in St. James area. Only 5 minute walk from Green Park Tube Station. Very friendly service. Quiet Rooms. Free wifi is reliable. Best rooms are in the Annex area, main building is older and may have some plumbing issues

A high quality traditional hotel in St James. Very nice room with four poster bed which was not king sized as requested so we were a bit cramped. However, bathroom and room facilities which included expresso machine were very good. Fantastic breakfast. Good food in the restaurant and room service. Wine was very expensive though. Service everywhere of the highest... More

We loved our recent stay at The Stafford! The terrific location (one block off Piccadilly, a short block from Green Park) ensures easy and convenient access to everything ... easy walks or speedy access to the subway/underground. We also can't say enough about the wonderful service at the Stafford! The hotel is small, so the staff is very focused on... More

I'm just back from a site visit for an event. This truly is an undiscovered gem in the heart of St James! The peace sad tranquility means it's like being out in countryside. The public areas are beautiful, the meeting rooms great, bedrooms are gorgeous and the added working wine cellar for wine tasting adds a special something to an... More

What is it not to like about this hotel? It's like coming home to a perfect home and as always, the staffs are friendly, happy and very professional. Perfect location, walking distance to all major things in London.

The Stafford is everything we'd heard, and more. Location can't be beat. Walking distance to almost everything in our favorite part of London. I agree with others who rate the service exceptional..... very personal service and a very personable staff. They've hired well here. Any time we asked for something, it arrived promptly, even quickly! Our room was in the... 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.
