One of the best places I have stayed. Stayed at the three bedroom apartment and I must stay it is simply superb. Right next to Buckingham Palace and quite nice to walk around. Good restaurants near by. Didn’t try the food at the hotel, but cooked quite a few times at the apartment

Booked to stay for one night on our silver wedding anniversary. We arrived to be greeted by lovely staff who advised we had been upgraded to a suite in their sister hotel across the courtyard. We were taken there to be welcomed with a glass of champagne before being shown to the suite which was just fabulous, up on the highest floor (something we had asked for) and equipped with just everything you could wish for or need. Fresh fruit had been left, a well stocked mini bar and a good coffee machine all added to a very lovely stay. We were further greeted to an anniversary chocolate treat when we returned later that night. The bed was lovely and comfortable and breakfast the next morning was superb. Our stay really was fabulous and the staff are just lovely and very attentive. Thank you so much and we really hope to stay again another time. Oh the location is great too!

Newly remodeled, beautiful hotel.

We rented a suite of 3 rooms for our group of 6 travelers. The suite was well appointed, modern, and nicely designed.

The staff was excellent. We enjoyed their service and their friendly nature. They arranged several outings for us and gave perfect advice on how to tackle experiencing London.

Highly recommended.

The attention to detail is superb. The food, the service and the ambiance were all exceptional. Especially the service. The staff were attentive and anticipated all our needs - we reached for our phones to take a photo - they were there with a prop; we poured the last of our tea into our cup - they came over to ask if we'd like another pot. It was our first visit to a Taj hotel and planning a stay quite shortly. Highly recommended.

We stayed here in december 2016. The residence was spotless, with a great kitchen! The breakfast they offer was excellent and they can also deliver it to the room free of charge. For those that like indian cuisine, a one michelin ⭐️ restaurant The Quilon, is right next to this place.
