We stayed here last year and really liked it, so returned with high expectations. Broadly, these were met but our standard 'deluxe' double room wasn't very good. The bed was the smallest size that could possibly be passed off as a double, the shower was over the bath with shower curtains, the windows weren't double glazed so it was noisy... More

This is not a place to stay in a standard room especially at £290 per night. I avoided an internal room with no view and instead had a view into the next building from above the front door. The room was tired and cramped. The double really only a double and tiny at that - to be well avoided by... More

We stayed at the Royal Horseguards for a week and had a room on the 6th floor that overlooked the Thames with a terrific view of the London Eye, National Theatre and in the distance The Shard. This was our first experience at this hotel. Breakfast offerings were fabulous and offered a premium selection of traditional and non-traditional items. The... More

This hotel is excellent on every level, service, location, comfort, food, price. We have stayed many times and it just gets better every time in highly recommend it to anyone. We had a luxury room overlooking the river Thames, and the London Eye, what an amazing view. In my opinion this hotel is one if the best in London.

For business I sometimes visit London and have the good fortune of staying at some of London's finest hotels within our company budget. The top choice in unequivocally the Corinthian and behind that the Savoy. The question is where to stay in the center of town when neither of those two are available. I have consistently made the Royal Horseguards... More

Over the years I have stayed at the Royal Horseguards about 40 times. I love everything about it, mostly the location which cannot be beat. It is right in the middle of London and a block from Trafalgar Square. What makes this hotel particularly great is that it is so quiet in spite of the fact that it is in... More

Stunning building. Check-in was efficient & because I notified them ahead of arrival that it was my partners birthday we got a free upgrade overlooking the river & were shown to our room. Felt very VIP. If was a shame the birthday chocolates arrived much later rather than being in the room - but still a nice touch. Be warned... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise a 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.
