Just returned from a weeks stay in London. Booked this hotel through American Airlines package and couldn't be happier. We were travelling with a child so requested a triple. Our first room was fine, but smallish with no view. We checked at the front desk and for 20 pounds per night we were upgraded to a beautiful room with 2 french doors providing Thames River view looking at bridge and the London Eye. Bathroom was big, with separate tub/shower and heated towel rack.
Rooms contained a minibar, laptop access, tv, iron/board, 3 phones, etc. All the comforts of home. We had a king bed and a sofa bed for the child which was fine. Continental breakfast was included which had all kinds of fruit, pastries, cereal, cheese, coldcuts. There was a full breakfast available, but we were fine with this.
This is an older, historic building which has been refurbished and is charming. There is a lounge off the main lobby with a piano player every night. Very relaxing to sit and have tea or whatever.

The location is great. One minute to the Embankment tube stop and Charing Cross Railroad Station. You are 5 minutes walking distance to Trafalagar Square, 10 minutes to Covent Garden, 15 minutes to Leicester and Picadilly Square. You can walk across the bridge and be at the London Eye in 10 minutes and all the attractions on that side of the river. Don't waste your money on expensive cabs. Go to the Embankment Tube stop and buy a pass. There is an assitance desk to get tickets and they will give you advice/map on how to get all over the city. It is very easy and cost effective so don't be put off. You can be just about anywhere in under 20 minutes.

There are many good restaurants in walking distance, so don't confine yourself to the hotel. Enjoy- you won't be sorry.

Stayed at the Horseguards for 7 nights from June 15-June 22. Reserved a deluxe twin with breakfast included. Room was small, but in the newer section and quiet. We asked to be upgraded and for an additional 20 pounds per night this was done for us 2 days later to a beautiful twin room overlooking the river(some road noise on the front view). The breakfast was tasty and well presented. The staff was helpful and friendly. All in all a nice hotel and considering that London is now the 2nd most expensive city in the world not a bad price-97 pounds per night, excluding tax. The location is absolutely fantastic and very close to the tube station and Trafalgar square. I would definitely stay there again.

Marvelous place to stay in London. We booked tru Globus Travel and everything was taken careof for us. Breakfast was included. Although its always the same food: croissant, stickybuns, cereals, yogurts, fruits salad, coldcuts, cheese, scrambled eggs, backbacon, beans in tomato sauce, hashbrowns...
Eating a big breakfast may save you a lunch.
Everything is very expensive: 10-12Pounds per meal thats 25$cnd... each.
Our room was cozy, 2 single beds, large bathroom with heated towel rack, trouser press.
Concierge was very helpful and made all our reservations for us; theater, excursions, (stonehenge touching the stones by Premium Tours is a must).
This hotel is very old and charmy and HUGE. It appears in almost every picture of London for its just in front of the London Eye.
The tube Embankment is two steps away, and 10min walk up the street to Trafalgar square, another 10 min to Piccadilly. Other Thistle hotel look nice but Horseguards is quiet and central to every major attraction.
