“Very enjoyable stay with 1st class service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

I've traveled the world and stayed at great hotels but the 51 Buckingham Gate hotel ranks in my top stays. The service we got as soon as we stepped inside the hotel was 2nd to none. The staff was very friendly and made my kids feel very welcome. We were quite surprised with the quality and the spaciousness of the rooms - kids has a separate bedroom. Full kitchen with stove and refrig and washing machine if you need to do quick laundry. Full entertainment center with iPod hookup. The hotel just had everything we needed for a great extended weekend say. Thank you 51 Buckingham Gate.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite in March and loved it. We booked a two bedroom and were upgraded upon arrival. It was very tastefully decorated and spacious. The beds and linens were VERY comfortable and the bathrooms were well appointed and modern. The service was excellent. We thought this hotel was excellent value.

Room Tip: 2 and 3 bedroom suites are excellent!

Have stayed at perhaps a dozen hotels in London. 51 Buckingham Gate has been amazing... Mohit at the hotel was very helpful and addressed some special requests that I had very well.

I had a King's junior suite and stayed in September 2012 for ten days- the room was certainly very good with only a couple of minor quibbles. The closet was on the smallish side and the television was a bit old. Apart from that, everything was great. Very large bathroom and well furnished rooms.

Had room service, breakfast and tea a couple of times each - all very good. Used the gym which was fine too!

This is home away from home. Their apartments are spacious and very comfortable. Great location for taking a long run/jog through the nearby parks in the morning before you start the day. The staff is fabulouse. They are very helpful, polite and friendly. Always make us feel like we are coming home. Sergio the butler is magnificent!! Our absolute favorite. Alex is an amazing consierge always getting us the best tickets to plays and the best tables at great, trendy restaurants. One of our highlights when visiting London!

We stayed here for a couple of nights with our 2 children, having stayed here ourselves last August. The service is outstanding from the moment you arrive, genuine staff who cannot do enough for you. The suites are beautiful, and location perfect! We wouldn't stay anywhere else in London!

Have stayed here in Taj Suites several times in the last 5 years, but recently they renovated one wing and I started experiencing the new ones... each one is of a different decor and very spacious and well designed suites (service appartments). I guess there is nothing much to say about Taj service... they are second to none and exceptional service.

I decided to book this for me and my girlfriend to celebrate our anniversary. I booked the Romance at 51 package.

I found the entire booking process very easy and communication via email very quick and efficient.

The suite itself is lovely and the fruit platter is a nice touch. No need to pack bathroom essentials, the Molton Brown products are lovely and well stocked.

Staff are great and very helpful. My only slight annoyance was that although booking in advance and checking with the spa what times are available, when we ran a little late and informed them, we were told that they wouldn't be able to get the treatment ready because there is preparation time. I was a little confused with this as surely the prep work would be done before we got there. However, they were helpful enough and we moved the treatments to the following day.

It is worth pointing out that the spa is a short walk across the courtyard. Lockers are available and robes and towels are provided. I found my treatment was very good and I definitely felt better after.

The canapes were lovely and once again the staff were very welcoming and friendly. I did feel at ease and you can tell there is a focus on delivering a great experience. This was demonstrated when I ordered breakfast to the suite very last minute and the staff were more than happy to prepare and bring it up for us. I was very impressed.

You also have access to the DVD library. Soft drinks and popcorn are also complimentary. This gets two thumbs up.

This was well worth the spend and I have always been impressed with the Taj. I can't wait to stay again.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the King Suite.
