Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I stayed here for three nights at the end of January and had such extraordinary service. The staff goes above and beyond what you would normally expect. My 900 square foot suite, provided more than enough room and the location is perfect. Best bath, you could just soak for hours.

This is an exceptional hotel which provides outstanding service and quality in every department. It thoroughly deserves its high reputation on this website. It would take too long to mention everything that was delightful and superb but from the moment you arrive and they offer you a warm wet towel to freshen up while you check-in it is an experience to treasure. An upgrade was offered to a much larger suite on the seventh floor. There are free drinks and canapes served from 6.30 each evening in the Library, complimentary newspapers and very high quality products in the bathroom. Just to quibble a little - it was surprising that there were no tissues in the room, nor an alarm clock, nor something to play music like an iPod dock or Bose system. Otherwise, every moment spent there made you feel very welcome and special. If you get a chance, don't hesitate - go!
PS, there is no swimming pool, I got carried away with 'Excellent' for everything and couldn't undo it afterwards! There is a gym though, so count it as for that

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade!

last few days in january was in london and this was an absolutely great place to stay in. the suites are extremely large and for a big family this is perfect. the taj side of the hotel ( the other side is called crowne plaza - though they share most of the restaurants , gym etc ) is a bit inside - so the only difficulty if any is getting your taxi / car inside. it has a very cosy courtyard and summer months should be perfect. the service is impeccable. Quilon restaurant - have an attachment to it as my father hails from a city by the same name.

overall a really nice place to stay.

Room Tip: guess any room - but the smaller suites are a little congested.

We booked a suite for 4 people here at the Taj 51 Buckingham gate for a weekend in London with friends. We were upgraded to a larger suite which truly was home from home. The little touches and extras here make the whole experience very royal which is very apt for its location just a few minutes from Buckingham Palace. We had an excellent lunch in Bistro 51 with an excellent recommended wine to compliment the meal. I have a nut allergy and so informed the waiter as I always have to do but on this occasion the service was again very special as he then informed everyone in the complex and so when we arrived at the Michelin starred Quilon restaurant in the evening they were fully aware and had prepared some dishes accordingly. I have never experienced this attention to detail and understanding of a severe allergy before.
We also enjoyed our complimentary aperitifs and canapes in the library prior to dinner.
The concierge and reception staff could not do enough for us throughout the whole stay I only wish we had been there longer but one thing is for certain we will be back.

I have recently returned from London after spending three fabulous days at the Taj. We were upgraded to the Prime Minister's Suite, and it was fantastic and HUGE. The staff were exceptional and were extremely considerable and helpful with my 6 and 8 year old children. Erol in the breakfast room even packed some pastries for my children to take for morning tea. Alex, John and Nelson were so helpful at the Conceirge desk, and booked tour tickets, arranged a babysitter at short notice, provided advice on what to visit and what to give a miss, taking into consideration the ages of my children, I can't thank them enough. All the staff were friendly and polite, and made us feel so welcome. I can highly recommend this property, and will definitely return when I am next in London, which I hope is sooner rather than later.

Short walk from Victoria and even shorter from St James' Park. Amazingly quiet. Great junior suite with more than I could ask for. The staff were tremendously welcoming and friendly throughout. 5 minutes from the Houses of Parliament.....complimentary cocktails.........complimentary coffee brought to your room in the morning which you don't need because there is a Nespresso machine. I put out my shoes for cleaning and they came back like new.

My only regret? I was working and didn't get to spend enough time there. i will remedy that with my wife later in the year........
