First time to stay here and before staying had never even heard of it. Tucked away down a fairly insignificant side street the hotel entrance is not very commanding but once inside the quality and ambience really shows. Every aspect of the hotel is based on traditional styling and it works. I stayed in a Deluxe King room which was... More

My friend and I were given a lovely room with no stairs and a walk-in shower after we expressed concern about getting in and out of the bathtub.

We were not lucky this time, having a very nice room, with an extraordinary confortable king bed BUT unfortunately we were just in front of two service doors (plus one extra door in the corridor), so wake up unrequested was very early... But this was simply not our day because the hotel is just great, deserves its 5 star level.... More

The staff are very attentive and friendly. The bedroom was beautiful and very well equipped. The location is great, very central and particularly good for the palace, parks and Westminster . The American bar is absolutely wonderful.

Attentive service, gorgeous food and an evening to remember. Set in the wine cellars used as a bunker in the Second World War, my colleagues and I enjoyed a private meal. The staff were always on hand to keep drinks topped up and the food (I had asparagus/duck/parfait) was excellent. I'd highly recommend!

Met outside for lunch it is just like being in the country right in the heart of London. The weather was perfect a hot summer day could not have enjoyed it more. The bar in the hotel is also one of the best In London but if possible to drink eat outside is a real treat!!

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.

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
