We went to London to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of London Town. We surely picked the right place to stay. This is a luxury hotel at the top of its game. We stayed over Christmas and the carriage house was decked to the nines. The food is superb, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. My wife... More

This is a small traditional boutique hotel. The hotel is really very good, well maintained and very clean. Lots of staff. Attracts an older clientele. Food good but expensive. Hotel accommodation is also expensive. . Plumbing an ongoing negative issue. The rooms are very well appointed. Great position and location. Close to busy tube station. Concierge alwaysommewhat snobbish. I would... More

I stayed at this hotel over the Christmas period. The room was a little on the small side but adequate. Staff really friendly yet professional. I love that this hotel is a little secret hideaway in central London on a quiet street. The food though is fabulous. They have a new chef, and it's a vast improvement on the previous... More

The hotel itself is nice with polite staff. But the rooms are tiny & overpriced. We had a room on the 6th floor with no view to speak of. The bathroom drains smelled terribly whenever taps were opened. We won't be returning.

I stayed here for 2 nights on business mid-week and found it to be a very good hotel right by St James' Park. I didn't have too much interaction with the staff but what I did have was very good both at check-in and at breakfast (continental breakfast was fine but the choice wasn't astonishing) where the service was very...

Outstanding location but the intransigence and arrogance of the hotel management ruins it. Mostly obnoxious yanks stay at this hotel. Stay away. Rooms are tiny, food mediocre, service is lousy and way, way over priced

I can't fault this hotel (well only that they modernised the American bar so it lost its atmosphere. This bar has many memories for me.) I have been coming here for decades and it continues to be pure pleasure. It is small, superbly located, with personal attention from the staff and luxurious rooms (on the small side by international standards).... More

Stayed at the Stafford November last year. It is very centrally situated amongst old histoic buildings not far from St James Palace and the Ritz London, as well as the Green Park stop on the Underground. You can easily access London by cab or subway, or walking, like we did. It is not far from the busyness of Piccadily and... More

I spent three nights at the Stafford and I only have positive things to say. The hotel is small, sort of "hidden" from the chaotic, busy and noisy life that is London, but conveniently located from major shops, attractions, pubs, restaurants and public transportation. The staff were cordial and very professional. The room was very comfortable, clean with a modern... More
