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.

We stayed at the Stafford for 2 nights in the main house. This was our second visit having stayed before Christmas on my nephew's recommendation. It is an oasis of calm in the capital. The ethos is that, while resident, this is your home. The staff are friendly and helpful,

Stayed for 4 nights in one of the carriage house rooms which face towards the courtyard, you can tell the rooms have just been renovated and have a lovely country feel to them. The breakfast in the Game bird was really enjoyable and the service was brilliant. We even enjoyed a

I stayed in the original building. The room's heating system was not working. I asked for a room with proper heating. They could have given me a room in the adjoining modern building but chose not to do so. Instead I was given two space heaters which worked fine but made the air

There was constructions nearby but we didn't hear it at all. In fact it was one of the quietest hotels I've stayed in.

I would agree that the area is safe. It is in the middle of the city with lots of people around on the streets during the day. In the evening it is still a busy area -- restaurants and shops nearby with people and traffic walking about. Like any big city it is best to keep your head up and be aware of your surroundings. This a wonderful hotel and I'm certain the staff would be happy to help you find your way around safely.
