5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

Treated beautifully as soon as we arrived. Staff so professional but not stuffy just perfect. Room fab with lovely bed, huge bathroom and great pillows.
American bar downstairs is usually busy but great for pre theatre drinks.
Breakfast was yummy [lenty of choice too. Had a great stay.

Lovely hotel in the heart of London tucked away in a quiet street, but with easy access to Green Park tube station The public spaces are elegant and extremely well appointed. The staff are polite, corteous and respectful. Bedrooms are comforatble with gorgeous light fluffy quilts and quality linen. Breakfast service is good and the food quality was excellent. I would definitley stay here again.

The staff are warm, welcoming and incredibly helpful, the common areas are beautiful and very well kept, and our room was fresh and wonderfully appointed. However, the best thing about this hotel is its quite location. Just off of Green Park, the Stafford is walking distance to the Pall Mall, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park Corner and all things central London, yet it’s location on a quite back street means the noise and crowds are two blocks away from your doorstep. Also, don’t miss the American Bar (loads of WWII vintage photos and artifacts from “the colonies”) or a tour of the wine cellar (just ask). Everything about our stay was perfect. Our new favorite London hotel.

Room Tip: Room with a view of the Carriage House was lovely

Great location, fantastic staff, wonderful room. Yes it is on the pricey side but is in central London so what do you expect... One of the best hotels I have used in London and would highly recommend. Look on the deal websites and get good savings as I did geting 5* for £10 more than a premier inn. Even at full price I will be returning. The courtyard is a wonderfull place for a light bite and a glass of the excellent house claret.

I visited the American Bar before going out to dinner with friends. I hadn't been before but we managed to get a table outside (yes it was sunny) and we were never forgotten about by the waiter. They even served me beer in a crystal glass which was a nice touch.

Great bar, quaint location, very smart - I shall return.

Good place to go before working your way up to the west end.

The Stafford is hidden gem off Green Park. The ambience in the American Bar is special. Not cheap but fantastic.

I stayed here for one night with a friend and I cannot not compliment this hotel enough. We were able to check in a bit earlier than usual and the friendliness of the staff as well as the beautiful hotel made our stay an absolute pleasure.
It was minutes away from Picadilly, but wonderfully quiet. I chose the hotel partly on the basis that the description described the staff as friendly, something that is hard to find nowadays and they really were all excellent.
The room was lovely, luxurious, with bathrobe and slippers and fresh coffee whenever we wished. We had a fantastic night's sleep and did not want to leave.
I would certainly stay here every time I go to London if possible.
