I had sent a package to the hotel and asked in the lobby to have it sent to my room. After waiting an hour, I called again, they apologized and said they would bring it write up. After waiting another hour, they said the package had not been delivered. After more frantic phone calls they found the package and brought... More

This has to be one of the nicest places to stay in London, you are first welcomed into the hotel through the grand lobby, the staff are very friendly. The rooms are very nice and the bathrooms are so cool with the mini TVs, you can sit back and relax in the bath and watch tv. You are 2 minute... More

We loved staying at the Royal Horse guards! The room was big and nicely (British) decorated. We absolutely loved the small garden. The location is perfect. Just one thing: The staff was a bit confused (came back one day to find our room with 2 more beds, when we were not expecting any guests). When we asked for a room... More

Booked this hotel through an opaque booking site. Never heard of it before so was a bit nervous. Area is very quiet but close enough to tourist sites. Hotel rooms were very good, clean and spacious. Staff were good. Breakfast was average to good. Didn't use other hotel facilities. I would use it again if price was right.

We spent a week here. The room was fab. I loved the tv in the bathroom. Excellent turndown service. The breakfast was both buffet and al carte. If you want to order something from the menu do it when you sit down as it can take some time.

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.
