The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The location, just down the road from buckingham palace, is amazing. The hotel itself is around a lovely little courtyard giving a secluded feeling within central london. The customer satisfaction was top notch as the concierge advised us that it would be free to park the car outside on a single yellow if we wished as we had asked for valet parking which comes at a cost. They could have kept quiet and just taken our money. That was very much appreciated and shows that they care. Our room was amazing with a kitchen for which the hotel are provided fresh milk, fresh fruit and coffee capsules for a coffee machine. The breakfast was wow, I am bit biased as an Indian I get wowed when I get Indian breakfast at any hotel. They also did masala tea which was fantastic. Top notch, definitely worth more visits.

Summary: absolutely amazing staff, facilities, room & weekend away! 2 adults travelling for one night stay. I booked a junior room at Taj at 51 for an impromptu stay for my husband’s birthday. I picked this hotel particularly for its well known spa facilities and the internationally acclaimed ‘Taj’ brand. On booking I contacted the hotel directly and spoke to the very helpful Loreto who assisted me with my requests to make the stay extra special for my husband (after a year of shielding!). Upon arrival at the gates we were immediately met with a very cheery Taj at 51 staff member (who’s name we never got, sorry!) who escorted us to the main reception. When we were seated we were ably assisted with the very friendly Roberto who upgraded us to the Kings one bedroom suite with his compliments due to the special occasion. Iara kindly offered to accompany us to our room (in the rain!)!where her colleague (again, very sorry for not catching their name!) had already set our luggage in the adjoining room. And the suite! My oh my! My husband and I have luckily stayed in many hotels across the globe, but are in full agreement this was one of the nicest and spacious we have ever visited. In the room the staff had set up a birthday cake, Prosecco, some balloons and most importantly, had all personally signed a card to my husband. Now I know many hotels offer this as a service, but the personalised card is something I’ve not come across before and was very much appreciated. The suite was so spacious it truly felt as if we we’re in a home away from home; exactly what you want when relaxing. The suite consists of an opulent bedroom, double sink bathroom with separate shower, a fully fitted kitchen and a luxurious living space. As mentioned we deliberately picked the hotel due to its Jiva spa. I had prebooked treatments and the staff members were so good, I almost fell asleep! The pool whilst not large felt like a thermal spa and very cosy. The cleanliness of the facilities was second to none, which is very important during these times. Upon checking out we were again greeted by Roberto who remembered it was my husband’s birthday and wished him, which was much appreciated and a lovely personal touch. You’d assume in a hotel as vast as Taj at 51 and with the amount of guests staff encounter, they would forget but Roberto did not! We also met Mohit the manager (who had provided us a separate welcome note in our suite) and he was very friendly, and Mohit encouraged us to share any comments on our stay. This was different as most of the time I get the impression hotel managers just want guests to say positive things only; but my husband and I both felt as if Mohit wanted constructive feedback to further better the hotel’s offering. And it is this what I personally believe sets this hotel miles ahead of others - the impeccable service. This is already a fantastic place to stay, but the hotel staff want to do more and be even better. It wants to service its guests more than it does and I can’t think of many other London hotels which have welcomed and placed such importance on my constructive opinion and feedback as a guest. All in all a brilliantly wonderful stay and we cannot wait to go back! I only wish I had signed up to the loyalty scheme upon check in as I know I’ll be racking up points globally if the service at Taj is as good as it is in London!

Amazing place. The staff were all so lovely and really made our stay. We were met with Prosecco and they upgraded us free of charge as a room was available which was huge. They really made us feel special. Location is excellent just near Buckingham Palace and close to the Victoria Palace Theatre (where we went to see Hamilton). We had such a lovely trip to London in part due to the staff at the Taj suites!
