My wife and I stayed at this hotel to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We stayed in one of the Minister suites which was simply fantastic. The rooms were equipped with everything that we needed for a 3 day stay. The location was great and the breakfasts were lovely. The staff are so attentive and are a credit to the hotel. We were made to feel extra special and it really added to the weekend. We will definitely stay at this hotel again. I would go as far to say that this hotel is the best in London - Mr Thorpe

The service and the rooms were superb, is our first visit in London and they make this moment unforgetable..! Is close to the sub station, you have all the main attractions from London just by walking, they have a wonderful cafe cross the street, for a good breakfast before the tourist walk.

We stayed here with two of our close friends and stayed in the minister suites ... They were apartments!! So amazing and nothing was too much trouble.. The drinks in the court yard were great and a lovely touch with canapés

Everything was so comfy and welcoming... TV in the bath!! Wow!!

We went for breakfast in the morning and was the best I've tasted! Also the extras of smoked salmon, avocado and much more!

Really was the best hotel we have stayed in!!

Thank you to the staff that made us feel so welcome

I have stayed at 51 Buckingham Gate twice since finding it by chance. The service is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. treated like VIPs! The suites are large comfortable and so well equipped, you want for nothing. Most London hotel rooms are small...here you could quite easily lose each other in these suites. Loved the happy hour in the Library and food at The Bistro was fantastic too. Have already booked our next stay and cannot wait. Many thanks to all the Staff for such a great job.

We have just returned from Taj 51 and cannot recommend this place enough. The service from start to finish was exceptional and all the staff are friendly and genuine, especially Sergio. The suite was beautifully furnished and clean. The location was excellent, we travelled on foot to all the main points of interest including Knightsbridge etc. Expect lots of magical touches throughout your stay, such as the chocolates on your pillow and Molton Brown products in the bathroom. We enjoyed cocktails in Hamptons bar and Zander bar. Will definitely be booking a return visit in the future!!

I booked a surprise stay for my girlfriend last Wednesday night (6th August) for our 1st anniversary, and got a great deal on booking.com. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty by Sergio and the team. The Kings Suite we had was spotless and luxurious. A special thank you must be said to Alex and Slizard who were the gracious hosts to us in the Library for the happy hour cocktails! They were faultless and we both really appreciated the way we were treated. We can't thank them all enough!

Sitting in the courtyard in the evening and the following morning really gave it the feeling of being overseas. It felt more like Barcelona than London!

We will definitely be going back again!
