Editorial review:

This hotel has cozy, welcoming apartments very close to the palace. The kitchens are large and the service is great (you can also get a personal butler). The spa is highly recommended, and there are French, British, and Indian restaurants. The off-street entrance is very appreciated as well.

            Individual guest reviews

            • Family with children
              10.0

              Staff was very friendly and room was great for a family with two 9 year olds.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Good location, nice courtyard, spacious junior suite, elegant design

              The room, out-side of the windows need renovation. Staff was helpful, but still felt lack of attention. Something was missing to call it an outstanding hotel. Good, but not excellent.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              We stayed at the hotel to celebrate our anniversary and we certainly weren't disappointed. The standard of the accommodation was excellent; the staff were very friendly and helpful; and it was a very pleasant experience all round. They even left us a card with some complimentary drinks and chocolates for our anniversary - a really nice touch which was very much appreciated.

              Nothing - everything was really good.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              Taj kept its reputations for service. We were upgraded to a Superior Suite to better suit our family. The kitchen was stocked with all the basic necessities. The washing machine was not working initially, but the hotel staff laundered our clothes and returned them urgently. The hotel is very well located very close to Buckingham Palace. The tube is just a few minutes away. The area is very quiet. We really enjoyed our stay there.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              In all respects superb! The staff, the location, the top breakfast, and the super-spacious suite. On top of that, absolute silence at night, with windows that can be opened, which we highly appreciate. I'd personally rate it a 10.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              The staff made this visit truely excellent and I would recommend the hotel to business contacts and family friends.

              Whilst the restaurant (Bank) in the courtyard is independant from the hotel, the service from it was poor and detracted from the overall experience - there could be a danger that the two establishments are seen as an entity: therefore is potential, therefore, for your reputation could be tarnished by association

            • Couple
              6.2

              The staff were polite and courteous.

              The room was smaller than suggested on their website. Sadly we had a view of an adjoining building with little natural light. Also our room was situated above a staff room or staff kitchen so lots of constant talking combined with steady hum of an extractor fan. Some rooms may not experience this, we were only there for one night so didn't get the opportunity to ask to move.

            • Single
              10.0

              I was very happy with my stay, this was the best value for money luxury hotel in London - I feel like not staying anywhere else when I am in London. Mostly appreciated: overall space of apartment, facilities, quality services, relaxation, unique style, kitchen equipment. Great to invite friends for dinner as there are all facilities to make it feel like home. Really impressive.

              My apartment in ground floor and with back alley view was a bit noisy in the morning, but it was so nice and comfortable, that I didn't bother at all. During check-in I was offered a room on a higher floor but I didn't bother as the ground floor apartment was really spacious and satisfactory.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Felt totally relaxed and at home in our lovely, comfortable suite. Enjoyed lunch in the beautiful courtyard. The staff were really nice and helpful.

              We would not go for breakfast again as it was very busy on the Sunday. The breakfast room is not big and all tables are off the main thoroughfair. However although the staff were struggling to cope they were very pleasant. There was also some noise from building work (which appears to be ongoing) on the Friday afternoon.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              It was a Saturday so we were able to park right outside the hotel. The building and courtyards are very attractive and we found it to be a quiet location considering how central it is.The staff were very welcoming and were helpful and courteous without being obtrusive. We were very grateful to be upgraded to a very spacious and comfortable suite which had fresh fruit and bottled water provided. We had chosen the hotel mainly for the location and it was an easy ten minute walk to the theatre in Victoria. Overall we were really pleased and would certainly stay here again.

              A couple of points which are not complaints and did not detract from our enjoyment of our stay here.The reception on the TV in the lounge was not as good as it could be. The extractor over the hob could not work effect because it vented into a cupboard where it was sealed off with gaffer tape.

              The room was excellent, staff are so attentive they make you think that they are waiting next to the door. The indian restaurant of the hotel serves food that is just out of this world.

              We absolutely loved 51 Buckingham Gate! They were nothing short of amazing. We got a great rate on Booked.net for a 5 star luxury hotel-- 239 pounds per night for a twin bed junior suite for my friend and myself. When we arrived, we found out due to it being winter, they had a 2 bedroom suite available and for no additional cost, decided to upgrade us to a full 2 bedroom suite! It was like staying in a luxury flat right next to Buckingham Palace! It had a full kitchen with dishes and glasses, laundry, and a full living room. There were little details like free use of the espresso machine, pillowtop mattresses, towel warmers in the bathrooms. Every luxury detail was there. The concierge helped us with every question we had. I will definitely stay there again in a heartbeat! 5 stars all the way!

              Nothing! It was amazing.
