“51 BUCKINGHAM GATE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Stayed 11 nights at this hotel.All I can say is if you can stay here do. The location off Victoria Street puts you in touch with all of london by bus or tube.Get an Oyster card as over the years we have found this is the best deal if you are in city for more than4-5 days.There are several good restaurants nearby including Quilon southern indian cuisine.which is on site.
Buckingham Palace is 5 minutes walk away.
The staff in all departments of this hotel are excellent.Always pleasant and efficient.
We had a Virtuoso Package arranged by our travel agent which gave us an excellent rate and several perks.We will definitely use this hotel on future visits to London

The hotel made us feel welcome. We stayed for 13 days. The location was superb - just a few short minutes away Buckingham Palace, St. James Park several lovely pubs, and supermarkets and two tube station nearby. We had the Falconer's double bedroom suite and we were four of us. The kitchen was fully functional and with the essentials already provided by the hotel. It was like staying in someone's home. A kind host.

We stayed here for two nights in March. We were upgraded to a newly refurbished one bedroom suite which was gorgeous.
The standard of service was impeccable and the staff really helpful.
We ate in the hotel both nights. We had room service one night and ate in the library on the other. Food was good. They have complementary drinks and canapés each night from 6.30 which is a really nice touch.

Would thoroughly recommend this hotel - it is expensive but worth it for the high standards.

As we arrived outside our luggage was taken from us as we were led inside to register. We were upgraded to a recently refurbished 2 bedroom Falconers suite which was fully equipped. People spend their lives living in smaller apartments and it would have been more than adequate for a family. My ensuite bedroom with comfortable kingsized bed was lovely and my friend had plenty of space in her twin bedded room with shower room across the hallway. The staff were all friendly and attentive and we would love to return one day.
The hotel is ideally situated for sightseeing being barely five minutes walk from Buckingham Palace and less than twenty minutes walk to the London Eye despite stopping to take photos of The Houses of Parliament as we passed.

I travel frequently for business, and have high standards for hotels. Four Seasons, the Ritz, the Mandarin, the Aman Resorts, are my usual fare. 51 Buckingham Gate blew me away. The rooms are beautifully appointed, spacious, up-to-date, and quiet. The staff is solicitous, yet unobtrusive. While the lobby is small and the business amenities may not be up to the usual business travel-oriented hotels, everything about this hotel was just absolutely top notch. I would come here again with my family, or on business, and would recommend it to everyone. Just a fantastic place, I cannot say enough good things about it. The location is just steps away from the St. James Underground station, and within walking distance to Buckingham Palace and the surrounding parks. Very convenient to seeing all parts of London. I wish I were back at the hotel now....

Room Tip: The hotel honors your requests, such as high floor, away from elevators, etc. Don't hesitate to...
