“Outstanding!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I travelled with 2 sons last August and have very special memories of our time at 51 Buckingham Gate. Prior to arriving, the brilliant concierge team began working with me; arranging theatre tickets, restaurant reservations and suggested activities that we would all enjoy. I can't thank them enough for continuing to be so helpful and kind throughout our stay. All the staff at this beautiful and perfectly situated hotel were wonderful. We were upgraded to a gorgeous 2 bedroom suite. My boys didn't want to leave! Beginning each day in The Library for a delicious breakfast was a perfect way to begin the day. The staff would remember what we all liked the next day. We hope to return very soon and make 51 Buckingham Gate our "home" once again. Thank you for an outstanding visit!

Great place to stay in a great location.
Staff were fantastic and helped us with theatre and restaurant bookings as well as making some excellent recommendations, including Quilon which is just next door..
We were also automatically upgraded which was fab. The rooms are great with a fully equipped kitchen.
Also mini Masala Dosa's on the room service menu!!!
The SPA was superb or so my wife tells me ;-)
Tip: Check laterooms for some bargains on this one...

Had a two week stay at 51 Buckingham Gate, my second at the property. Everything, and everyone was very, very warm, friendly, welcoming throughout the stay. I stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was really, really large and well fitted out in an old-school way... the only one hitch was that the bathroom was a bit too old-school at times with the plumbing (toilet did not flush properly, and tub did not drain). The television could use an upgrade as well. Apart from that, just cannot fault this place...

I am delighted you enjoyed your recent stay at the Taj 51 Buckingham Gate, and was disappointed to read that there were some issues with the Bathroom in your suite, I am glad to say these issues have now been rectified.

We are also looking at upgrading the TV’s for our suites.

Once again thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.

We have been staying at this hotel 3 to 5 times per year or the past 8 years. Many changes have taken place (improving already wonderful service) and has made this hotel a real pleasure to visit. The staff have nearly become family.
One can always expect wonderful service and very wonderful staff.
At the moment the Kings section is undergoing refurbishment so rooms are in demand.

51 Is one of the best kept secrets in London and Araceli and her staff will always make sure you have a special stay. This is a highly recommended hotel but a wonderful location.

Room Tip: All rooms are special

We visited London to meet our two daughters who live in Bristol and Portsmouth. We have had the most wonderful weekend. We felt so at home and welcomed by the staff. Suites are spacious and luxurious. We enjoyed breakfast in the library as we could relax and have quiet quality family time. Highly recommend. Hope to return.

This hotel is beautiful, the staff exquisite, the whole place exudes style and sophistication. The staff are beyond helpful and extremely attentive. We were given an upgrade because it was my mothers 60th birthday. The rooms were immense and had everything you could possibly need and more! Will definitely return - the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Can't wait to return and try the restaurants as we didn't have time on this trip.

This is truly a 5* hotel. Just came back from a 3 days stay in London on my way back to NYC from Mumbai. Cannot say enough of how extraordinary our stay was. We have stay in various 5* hotels in London but none come close to the excellent service this hotel provides. The Staff was very attentive and professional and always took care of your requests in a timely manner.
The hotel has a privileged location close to many historical sites, shops, banks and Tube Station.
We stayed in a 2 bedrooms apartment and it was very well appointed with everything you need. I would definitely recommend this splendid property! On my next trip to London, without a doubt I will stay in 51 Buckingham Gate.
