5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I frequented the taj a few months ago not only did they upgrade us to a better suite but the service was fantastic from the start to the end I am so amazed with the way we was treated and not only that the next time I booked they remembered me and all my demands so thank you taj for everything

We stayed here for a long weekend and loved it.
Great location with the Queen living just at the end of the road!!! Some great wee pubs around the surrounding streets for a nice relaxed drink too. Our one bedroom Suite was very comfortable with a small seating area and a fully equipped kitchen. The Nespresso machine was a lovely touch.
Duing our stay we enjoyed the "in-room dining" which was delicious. You could order a mix of things from the extensive menus they had available, which was great when you liked things from different menus. It arrived at the time estimated and was beautifully presented and set up in the room for us.
Staff we all very friendly and approachable. We especially enjoyed the Lounge access at night where they served lovely canapes and Prosecco!
Great hotel in a great location for seeing the sights of London!

My wife and I stayed here for one night before xmas, we booked a room in the kings apartments, we were kindly upgraded to a one bedroom suite. It as the largest hotel suit I have stayed in, moreover the service was exceptional. The hotel provided some free drinks between 7-8 before we went out and the breakfast was the best I have had. Location was fantastic for sight seeing and shopping. This is the best hotel I have stayed in London. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The kings suite are recently updated.

I can see by the other reviews on here that i am only adding to what everybody else is saying. We were staying here this wekend in a three bedroom suite with a street balcony and a fully fitted kitchen - wow! The suite, the staff and the location are all worth mentioning as i couldnt fault any of them. We are that impressed that we have decided to go back in a months time. Once again thanks to all the lovely staff. The Steele Family were more than impressed.

Room Tip: Shop round on trivago etc for a good deal

My husband and I stayed here for a week over Christmas. Flawless, friendly, extremely helpful, outgoing staff who bent over backwards for ANY request or accommodation. A rollaway bed that was COMFORTABLE arrived for our daughter, a London college student at no extra charge. Outstanding concierge suggestions and seemingly impossible to get reservations materialized. Every staff member made us feel like welcomed extended family. Breakfast, high tea and happy hour daily in the beautifully appointed library-- all complimentary, all delicious. The gym and spa were clean and always available. Loved the location walking distance from several tube stops and Buckingham Palace. I travel a lot and would compare 51 Buckingham Gate with the best small luxury hotels in the world. A rave review for this well deserved staff and property.

Room Tip: We stayed in a King Suite that was like a luxury apartment: fully equipped kitchen, laundry machines...

We stayed at the Taj Buckingham Gate for 7 nights over Christmas week (2 adults 2 teens). We had a suite with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living/dining room and a kitchen. The rooms were large and comfortable. The staff was amazingly nice and accomodating. Rooms were serviced twice a day. Breakfast was great in our building. Guests has the option of going across the courtyard for breakfast if our area did not have tables available. Although the location was quiet and not in the "thick" of London life, we were down the street from Buckinham Palace and only a 3 minute walk from the St James's Tube stop.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a courtyard and very quiet.
