The Stafford is our go-to hotel for a night in town and we stay a few times a year. It’s an unbeatable location but also incredibly quiet. It is also a great combination of luxury but without pretension so it always has a very friendly and “genuine” feel. As it is not one of the flashier London hotels, it is excellent value for money compared to many other central 5-stars. Also, the beds are amazingly comfortable, which always helps! Overall, my favourite hotel in London - absolutely love it and would happily keep returning.

Cosy, friendly luxury hotel in the best part of London … so close to everything. Both the Gamebird restaurant and The American Bar are great places to eat. Good quality and reasonably priced for London. My new hotel of choice when staying in London.

The hotel is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in St. James Place so it's peaceful. The property and rooms are beautifully decorated and the restaurant is superb in terms of cuisine. But above all, the hotel staff are incredibly kind and welcoming and are genuinely happy to be there; it's almost like a family and every one of them made me feel like a family member.
