Great Scotland Yard Hotel

  • 151 Rooms, 8 Suites


It’s a city of infamous stories and of dark secrets. And behind a certain set of green doors there lies a multitude waiting to be discovered; few addresses in London are richer in legacy and anecdote than 1-5 Great Scotland Yard in St. James’s, Westminster.

Great Scotland Yard is one of London’s most historical buildings and may be best known as the former headquarters of the original Metropolitan Police, founded in 1829 by Sir Robert Peel. It was also once home to kings of Scotland during their official visits to London and to intellects such as Sir Christopher Wren, Inigo Jones and John Milton. Leading cabinet ministers, including Churchill and Kitchener, passed through its doors after the building was taken over by the Ministry of Defense.

Who knows what its walls have borne witness to over the years or how many notorious villains and criminals have spent time in one of the holding cells? (The detective work in putting them there served as endless inspiration for Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.)

Inspired by Great Scotland Yard’s colorful heritage, the owners have created a 5-star hotel that is a one-off in every sense -- a hotel that celebrates a world of exploration, creativity and originality to reward those who seek the ultimate non-hotel promise.

Great Scotland Yard has been re-imagined into a place for you to explore, discover and uncover many a tale waiting to be told….

No.1 Great Scotland Yard is a Grade II listed Georgian house adjoining the hotel, created from part of the original Scotland Yard Police premises. It’s a magnificent standalone townhouse and presidential suite for visiting business tycoons, celebrities, musicians and heads of state. The townhouse, with bedrooms across two floors, exudes style, sophistication and privacy – it has its own private street entrance, after all. But it also links into the main hotel where staff can be accommodated and the hotel bars dryly reached on the rainiest of days.

It’s contemporary but with original features preserved in a striking context, with one-of-a-kind furniture and works of art, original fireplaces, and even a decorative Aga oven. Settle into an armchair in the living room or sink back into the enveloping sofas in the games room. The wine cellar with its tasting table is a room just calling out for a poker night.

Call upon as much or as little service from the hotel as required. One of our chefs can mastermind a gastronomic feast in its kitchen (the dining room seats twelve), or we can leave guests to their own devices with a fully stocked fridge that is forever replenished.

This is a VVIP suite with a home-from-home feeling that all works beautifully. There’s nothing else like it in London: it’s a one-off.

Great Scotland Yard is the UK’s first hotel in Hyatt’s prestigious Unbound Collection.
