The Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences

When we are talking about the famous Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences
Victoria in London i can say that its quite simply one of the finest hotel. Here
architecture — all meticulous scrollwork and theatrical bas reliefs — is gulp-inducing.
Especially interiors have the panache to match. Here, you will also find one of the
best Indian restaurants in the capital, and the seriously opulent “24 Karat Gold” also
available during afternoon tea.

Here is an exclusive street that also features several diplomatic missions like The
Britain-Australia Society, very famous the Wellington Barracks, also the headquarters for
very famous Rolls-Royce — and Zander, Europe’s longest cocktail bar (try the bank blazer with
Venezuelan rum). The great Buckingham Palace is six minutes’ walk; both Green Park and St
James’s Park are on just 10 minutes walk. All the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey
are on the same distance away & the Victoria Station is just 11 minutes’ walk.
Not any other luxurious London hotel can rival the rags-to-riches story that frames this
formidable five-star. Early in Elizabethan times, a distant relation of Anne Boleyn
established it as an almhouse for the poor. During the 19th century saw
military-man-turned-architect Major Charles Pawley transform it into a pied-à-terre for
nobility. But after that by the turn of the next century, history was being made in its
conspiratorially echoey with marble corridors and wood-cladded rooms & this is said that
Winston Churchill would also discuss all the important matters of state here while swilling
a glass of claret and sucking on a Havana cigar.

Most of its original architecture remains. Approximately all of the hotel buildings are
specially arranged around a central courtyard where wafish nymphs hold up the neoclassical
pediments; and grim-eyed satyrs support the archway-fringed balconies. Other part of the
brickwork is tiled with a startling Shamrock-green glaze, and there’s also a wonderful outdoor
frieze carved from the brickwork depicting Shakespeare plays.
Here all the female members of the team float around her in silk neck scarves, and the male
members stride through the corridors in suits tailored on Jermyn Street. Another good thing
is that their manner is exuberantly friendly, without the simulated sycophantry that plagues
many five stars.

There the facilities include three restaurants, a spa with steam room and sauna, a gym,
a huge business centre, also a private off-street entrance and a wide lounge. Specially the
library, with its soft & grey furnishings and multiple collection of antique compasses
and big globes, is a wonderful place to linger with a book. In case you’ve neglected to bring
