HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 February 2017

Overall great service, including some of the best housekeeping service I have ever experienced, and wonderfully welcoming attitude from everyone I came across, so the following comments seem a little knit picky. But with attention to just a few more details, my review title would have gone from "Lovely" to "Sublime". While the breakfast menu offerings were ample and served...

We stayed at the Taj for 12 nights from 26 April. This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in, the staff just couldn't do enough for you. We stayed in a King's suite, and it was just as we requested - a quiet room on a high floor. The 3 room suite was very spacious and...

I stayed at the Taj 51 Buckingham Gate during a recent business trip. I had the opportunity to stay in both the Kings and Minsters sections. Both sections of the hotel were impeccably appointed; the en-suite kitchens were nicer than those in my own home! The "living room" sections of both of my suites were perfect for entertaining small groups...

I am not one to exaggerate but honestly this hotel is incredible. Great location for touring London, perfect for a family with the kitchenette in the room, incredibly clean, and best of all incredible staff. So kind, polite, helpful.... especially to our two little munchkins. It is quiet and discreet which is a little daunting when you have kids under...

Room and decor epitomize comfort and class. Includes all the small touches which make even a short stay memorable (for the right reasons!) Topped off with exceptional personalized service. Conveniently located for business or pleasure. Excellent restaurants nearby.

This is a beautiful hotel, inside and out. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite, which was quite large. The kitchen has all that you would need, even a washer/dryer, and tea, Nespresso and milk are all provided. What distinguishes it, however, is the service. From the breakfast server to the concierge and everyone in between, we were made...

We loved Taj 51 Buckingham! Centrally located to everything you want to see and do in London. The staff is so professional, friendly and helpful. You'll wake up every morning with a smile on your face and return from your day excited to relax in the comfort of your home-away-from-home. We will be back!

We stayed in the junior suite. Rooms are great and the service is great as well. The location is much better than many other more central hotels. You get a bit of price and quiet due to its location. Would visit again.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
