About Us

An architectural masterpiece, Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences is just a gemstone's throw away from the cultural favourites of the capital and offers authentic luxury experiences in a bespoke and personalised environment. Built in 1897, three of the eight original townhouses form the residences; Kings, Minsters and Falconers, each benefit from their own private entrance and offer spacious and stylish suites of individual character.

Its 85 magnificent two and three-bedroom suites combine the exclusivity of a private family home with all the attributes of a luxury hotel each with their own separate kitchen and living area. Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences also features breathtaking suites from some of the world’s leading designers; the Cinema Suite by acclaimed Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee and the Jaguar Suite by Jaguar's Design Director Ian Callum are just two of our Signature Suites. Butler and Golden Key Concierge service is available 24-hours a day.

Chef Sriram Aylur’s Michelin starred Quilon promises to tantalize your taste buds with its exceptional blend of ethnic and progressive South-West coastal Indian menu, while Kona offers award winning creative afternoon teas including our brand new Alice’s Queen of Hearts themed tea. At the heart of the hotel you will discover the idyllic Victorian Courtyard with its gently flowing fountain surrounded by the World's longest Shakespearean frieze, a hidden gem amongst the bustling capital, and an enchanting setting for cocktails and alfresco dining during the summer months. The newest addition is Jiva spa, the first in Europe – a fusion of Indian wellness philosophy and luxury British innovation – featuring a unique range of spa treatments that blend the age old Indian healing techniques with the finest natural ingredients complemented by Temple Spa’s contemporary Mediterranean wellness philosophy and results-driven products.

Regally located in the luxurious Heart of London’s Royal Quarter, Taj Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences is a short 10-minute walk from Victoria Train Station, and easily accessible from both Gatwick, via the Gatwick Express, and Heathrow International airports. The hotel guarantees a valet service with fee, available 24 hours a day – cars are picked up and delivered by garage staff directly to the entrance of the hotel. Limousine transfer is available on request.

Treading the path from tradition to tomorrow, Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences redefines the meaning of luxury; with the characteristic Tajness warmth that has become the hallmark of our company at our core, we have created a distinctive, customised and exclusive Taj experience.

Best of the Best

Once home to the Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Royal Court, this exclusive hotel still resonates with echoes of history reaching back four hundred years to the time of Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth I. Quilon reflects the political and regal connections as one of the few restaurants with an exclusive Division Bell – summoning Members of Parliament to the Division Lobbies. Jiva spa is an urban retreat with the philosophy inherently rooted in India's rich heritage of wellness, inspired the fabled lifestyle of Indian Royalty and the healing therapies that embrace Indian spirituality.

The rooms we stayed in were like apartments. I would have liked to have seen a regular room in the hotel section. The location couldn't have been better. We were a block from Buckingham Palace and walking distance from Westminster Abbey. Beautiful lobby and great breakfast and outdoor facilities.

On the recommendation of our advisor Michael King, we stayed at the Taj 51 in London. The apartment hotel styling was perfect for our family... plenty of room for all of us and plenty of room to lounge. The accomodations were perfect- including a small kitchen and washer/dryer combo to allow us to do laundry. The staff at the Taj were incredibly kind, efficient and helpful with everything. Highly recommend!

This was a very pleasant and quiet suite and residencies hotel. The rooms well well appointed and the two bedroom suite we had was very good and even had a small kitchen and very adequate space. The dining room for the facility that we used primarily for breakfast was very good. The staff were exceptional. Very service oriented and helpful and very friendly. The location was great and convenient to many site seeing thIngs and a short cab ride to get to other places like the theater.
