The Stafford London by Kempinski Review

This is a rare find: a posh hotel that's equal parts elegance and friendliness, and located in one of the few peaceful spots in the area, down a small lane behind Piccadilly. All the accommodations are luxurious and chic, but those in the 18th-century stable block—with cobbled mews entrances, gas-fueled fireplaces, and exposed beams—are especially pleasant. It's hard to check in without meeting the gregarious manager, and his unshakable cheeriness is mirrored by the upbeat and helpful staff. The popular little American Bar has ties, baseball caps, and toy planes hanging from the ceiling.

    Not for the name-dropping set

    Subtle but very comfortable small hotel tucked away behind the Ritz. You feel like a guest rather than a customer here with well-trained staff & a good restaurant. Tea may be taken while lounging on comfortable sofas. A very nice home away from home where you are definitely welcomed - and remembered.
