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.

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.

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.

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.
