Although adjacent to the National Liberal Club, this place is as American as its embassy. Strictly a top-end hostel for those who can't quite do Claridges it's as close as you can get to sleeping in Downing Street! Unless you're called Theresa!

Hi and thanks for your review! You are right we certainly are just a stone throw's away from Downing Street as well as the historic houses of Parliament and Westminster. And if politics does not take your fancy we are only a few minutes away our city's many galleries, museums, theatres, high-end shopping districts and many, many award winning restaurants...

As usual we very much enjoyed staying in our favorite hotel. Everything about a stay here is first class. From the moment of arrival to the moment of departure life was made comfortably easy. There is no need to remark on every aspect as everything was tip top. The beautiful location on The Embankment meant that there are great views...

Although our recent stay for a week was pleasant we have noticed the past couple of years that certain amenities have been removed. Although small in nature they are noticeable. Perhaps the management team at the hotel might think that these changes are incidental, they are indeed noticeable. Are standards starting to slip?

We stayed for three nights at Royal Horseguards. We have stayed here before and it has become our choice for when when come to London. Our room was lovely and the service was very good. The hotel did everything to make our stay a happy one, as we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary. Looking forward to returning one day.

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.
