Property Spotlight: 51 Buckingham Gate Taj Suites & Residences



They're a a big shot in the realm of London serviced apartments. You could write a catalogue about 51 Buckingham Gate, Taj Suites and Residences and probably still find more to say. Dating back to the early 17th century where it was occupied by Elizabethan aristocracy, the historic roots of its prestigious building alone could form chapters. But for now, we’re going to attempt to bring its magnificence and mastery to life in a simple blog post - we’re thinking of it as a midweek challenge.




WHAT'S SPECIAL?

Part of the exclusive Taj brand, which is one of the largest and finest hotel chains in Asia and has a further 16 international hotels, these discerning five star luxury apartments in the heart of Victoria are the epitome of luxurious living in London. Besides its supreme location and world-class reputation, these uniquely designed serviced apartments in London exude seamlessness. Before you even step inside you’ll be dazzled by the tall wrought-iron gates that denotes its off-street entrance and the carefully crafted frieze of Shakespearian figures that line its impressive quadrangle and dance around its fountain centrepiece. Once inside, opulence awaits. The 86 suites and residences comprise 12 different room types, from the graceful Falconers One Bedroom Suites (64 square metres), to the intriguing world exclusive Jaguar Suite (170 square metres), right up to the elusive Prime Ministers Five Bedroom Suite (167 square metres) or The Presidential Suite (a whopping 306 square metres.) Each apartment has its own stylish character and blends five star hotel facilities with sleek and swanky designer furnishings, classy entertaining and living spaces, top of the range modcons, and indulgent amenities.Perfect for short stays and for hiring to entertain and impress guests or clients, each suite offers a minimum of one separate living room, fully-equipped kitchen and luxurious bathroom.

WHAT'S EXTRA SPECIAL?

But it’s the Cinema Suite that really steals the show, offering its guests 170 square metres of cinema themed decor; mounted walls and displays of one-off memorabilia; rich, plush furnishings; an impressive banqueting table and service; a grand opulent four poster bed; and, of course, the cinema facilities. And what’s a trip to the pictures without the snacks – guests are served a cinematic platter on a daily basis. It offers the ultimate cinematic experience- and an overwhelming one at that- rather than just a place to put your feet up after a long day of sightseeing in the capital.



WHERE IS IT?

The apartments sit off the road within quiet surroundings in the heart of Victoria, conveniently situated between Victoria and St James Park tube stations. They are just a moment away from Buckingham Palace (they could well be its next door neighbour) and only a short walk to one of the world’s most popular tourists hubs, Westminster.The West End and Oxford Street district is minutes away with a terrific choice of world-class shopping, dining, entertainment, nightlife, and a tranquil stroll through the tranquil St James Park and Hyde Park are too just minutes away.


WHAT'S IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD?


In Victoria itself, you’ll find an array of eateries, shops and amenities dotted around its high streets. But the neighbourhood is really a practical area for theatre goers (home to Victoria Palace Theatre and Apollo Victoria Theatre) and those wanting to be close to the capital’s most famous attractions. Buckingham Palace, St James Park, Big Ben, EDF London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, SEA LIFE Aquarium, Tate Britain, National Gallery and London Dungeons are all within a 10-15 minute walk. The well-connected Victoria station can take you directly to the West End and City of London areas and, for the most extravagant travellers, can even take you to Paris and Vienna via the Orient Express.


WHY WE RECOMMEND IT?
As well as fantastic interiors and exteriors that offer both modern and classic living, 51 Buckingham Gate, Suites and Residences incorporate a range of desirable services and facilities to signature its excellence. The building houses a 24 hour reception and concierge, the Michelin-starred Quilon restaurant, Europe's longest bar Zander London, gymnasium, spa, CCTV security and video entry, private meeting rooms, and a picturesque communal courtyard garden. And amongst the luxury capabilities, practicalities were not overlooked. Every apartment features air conditioning, free wireless internet, a mini-bar, in-room safe, a daily newspaper, Molton Brown toiletries, ironing facilities and a bathtub, with inclusive maid service twice daily, and in-residence dining with butler service also available.





But not only are these apartments perfect for short stays and for entertaining purposes. Families can be very well catered for due to the generous size of the suites, rarely found in London property. Some of these apartments can cater for up to 12 people and children’s amenities can also be provided on request. A check-out time of 12:00 is also a nice touch for the late bloomers who like their beauty sleep.
