Admittedly I take more than i give when it comes to this site and have only put a few reviews on when places have stood out for very good or very bad reasons. This one is very good, and that's an understatement. For what was a very reasonable price compared to other 3/4 star hotels, this definitely felt like a... More

We stayed in a Deluxe Double Room which was very well sized with huge windows and a gorgeous en suite. The room had every amenity you could wish for. As it was a special birthday weekend we chose to splash out on a nice hotel, and I was not disappointed. When we arrived, they'd accidentally put us in a twin... More

Excellent stay from start to finish. Staff and accommodation was faultless. May not be the cheapest but worth every penny. We upgraded room to a view of the London Eye. We ate in the restaurant, had afternoon tea and Prosecco, breakfast was generous.

Highly recommended hotel. We stayed twice in January and both visits were, as usual, superb. On our second visit we were upgraded to The Waterloo Suite (Room 914). What a room - if you want to really treat yourself book this one - it is stunning. Reception staff and concierge were a joy both upon arrival and on departure. Youssef... More

I recently had the pleasure of an extended stay at the Royal Horseguards hotel for a business trip. Having stayed in a different hotel (on the Strand) on a prior visit this year, the Royal Horseguards is far superior. There are many things I liked about the hotel, including the easy access to several subways, the theater, Trafalgar Square, etc.... 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 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.
