We spent the first time in this place. The room very comfortable and clean. The windows in our room where outside white painted, that you couldn't see into the inner yard. Unfortuneatly one window was covered with pigeon phuh which looked rather disgusting. Part of the stuf was very helpful especially at the reception. The staff in the breakfast room... More

Stayed here for 5 days and absolutely love it! We arrived early at around 1pm from Paris and the staff rushed to have our room ready! They even set up a nice chocolate plate in our room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location with the tube station right next door.

I recently had a trip at short notice into London to meet up with some friends and colleagues. I was given the somewhat awkward task of choosing where to go for a bite to eat a few drinks and a catch up. Basically I gave them a choice of some pretty reasonable pubs in the area or somewhere a little... More

I use the Royal Horseguards frequently as a venue to train hypnosis & hypnotherapy in London. The venue is spectacular, huge rooms, beautiful decor, great service. All of our students are highly impressed. And if you're in the mood to splash some cash, the 5 star restaurant offers some very delicious food and great service! All in all, a top... More

We stayed at the Royal Horseguards the last week of May, 2015. The hotel lobbies and our room were beautiful- just as depicted at the hotel website (I hate it when the photos of the hotel end up being the best the place will ever look). We had a deluxe double (remember, a "double" in the UK is a queen... More

We stayed for 2 nights in an Executive room overlooking the river. The room was not ready upon arrival (this was after 3.15pm) but we were upgraded and it was well worth the initial wait.

The hotel is perfectly situated for walking to all the sites in Westminster and nearby, and the Embankment underground is just a few feet away. We easily walked to Trafalgar and the theater district, as well as Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, and Covent Garden. Our room was small but clean and pleasantly decorated.

Staying in Westminster

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