I am a huge fan of the Taj hotels having stayed at many around the world. Taj 51 is next door to the Taj St James Court. (Do NOT stay there.....very noisy and awful service). Taj 51 is a gorgeous property with lovely large suites. Our room was a King Suite and had a large bedroom, separate large living room,... More

I cannot say enough how much my wife and I enjoyed our stay at Taj 51. We were in London for four days celebrating our 15th anniversary and we had not been on a trip since our kids were born over 8 years ago. Without stating the obvious, this was a very special trip for us. You have probably read... More

Only negative is that we had to wait 2 hours 10mins post check in time (2pm) for our... More

The service and the rooms were superb, is our first visit in London and they make this moment unforgetable..! Is close to the sub station, you have all the main attractions from London just by walking, they have a wonderful cafe cross the street, for a good breakfast before the tourist walk.

We have stayed here often and from our understanding the hotel was taken back by the Taj group following management by another hotel chain. The hotel is synonymous with the Taj chain, which is our favourite chain of hotel and renowned for its superb service. Same for this hotel, service was excellent and surprisingly personal for a hotel of this... More

I have stayed at 51 Buckingham Gate twice since finding it by chance. The service is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. treated like VIPs! The suites are large comfortable and so well equipped, you want for nothing. Most London hotel rooms are small...here you could quite easily lose each other in these suites. Loved the happy hour in the... More
