Beautiful Hotel

We loved our stay here. The room was huge and beautiful. It was more like a luxury apartment. In addition to the great room it was a great location on a quiet street. The service was exceptional as well. We will certainly stay here again the next time we come to London.

Luxurious Memorable Trip

This is an exquisite hotel. The in-room amenities were amazing: the most comfy, plush, and cozy bed, beautiful kitchen with complimentary coffee/tea and creamer, and dimmer lighting. That's just to name a few... The cleaning and concierge staff were extremely accommodating and made our stay a once in a lifetime trip.

Fantastic hotel

We couldn't have been happier. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Not a single complaint. I would happily stay here again.

Best place in London!

I took my daughter to London for her 16th birthday and we stayed at 51 Buckingham Gate, a Taj hotel. Everything was spectacular at the hotel. I could not have asked for anything better. The staff was unbelievably attentive. The room was beautiful and the bed extremely comfortable. My daughter brought her stuffed husky dog she's had for about 12 years and every night when we returned they had posed him in a new place and position after cleaning the room- this delighted her. Small touches like this are what makes this hotel more like a home than a hotel. One night we ate at a restaurant on the hotel property and we couldn't finish our meal. I asked for a to-go box- the staff instead had room service deliver it up to our room. I could go on and on. End result is that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We are planning to return to London next summer, and we will be returning to this hotel.

Hotel is central to everything in Westminster. Only a 5 minute walk to the tube (St. James Park) and Buckingham Palace is just down the street.

The hotel is excellent. Service is excellent. One limitation is that they are not very good at keeping rooms smoke free.
