We went to London for a few days and chosen the Royal Horseguards Hotel. It is very centrally located in London. You can walk from the hotel in a few minutes to the Big Ben, Downing Street 10, Trafalgar Square and many other things to visit. The hotel is an old building, but the inside is also very nice to...

I've stayed at the Royal Horseguards hotel a few times on business. My overall impression is that it is a good hotel with nice staff who do a decent job of good old-fashioned customer service. The hotel itself is fairly newly renovated although a little chintzy and old fashioned so don't expect cutting edge. The reason for staying here is... More

The hotel has a beautiful interior and as soon as you enter the reception area you're hit by a gorgeous scent of perfume. We had a lovely Afternoon Tea at the Royal Horseguards, where both the food and service were excellent. We look forward to our return.

Best part of this hotel was its fabulous location. Hotel position and breakfast were the highlights of this hotel but our allocated room was small and inadequate and certainly not a deluxe double. Don’t get me wrong, it was still very comfortable, but we were expecting for more. The services compensate the a/m minor issue.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights for my boyfriends 40th birthday. The staff were very polite and we felt spoilt which was lovely. The room was on 4th floor and was furnished nicely with Elemis goodies in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and slept well. We dined in the restaurant on our first evening and the... More

I visited the hotel with my husband at the beginning of September. Unfortunately my husband was unwell when we arrived . We had originally planned to just leave our luggage & compete check in later. However, as soon as I explained that my husband was unwell the lady on reception allocated us a very pleasant room. When my husband's condition... More

Stayed for weekend with my wife, daughter on her 18th birthday and her boyfriend. Door key to room continually failed and 6 times it was changed each time with condescending criticism of my daughter for keeping it too close to her Mobile. Not true and spoilt our weekend. When checking out and reporting my displeasure the offer of a free... More

We just spent 3 nights in that hotel, combining business and relaxing week-end. I personaly would have expected more for 345 pounds a night. The side view of the Thames river, was nothing because we were in the 3th floor and the view was hideen by a nice tree... If the room was quiet as a whole, as soon as... More

Original room too near external air con - noises sufficient to interrupt sleep -+ corridor noise excessive during the night - hotel did provide alternative accommodation for the remaining two nights-experience somewhat upsetting as we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.

We stopped at this hotel as part of our mini moon break after getting married! Location: fantastic, on the river Thames, (Westminster pier), view of the London eye, next to Big Ben and number 10, Downing street! Service very good (though afternoon tea a little expensive for what you get). Food: reasonable given the area, as we ate here before... More
