Stayed at the Royal Horse Guards last week while in London for business. Have stayed before and have to say, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Walking to work on the river via the park was very pleasant and the tulips were in bloom. I have two criticisms. Be sure to ask for a river facing larger room when...

This is the first time we've stayed at the Royal Horseguards and we would certainly stay there again. The location is excellent, just across the road from Embankment tube station and right by the Hungerford Bridge across to the South Bank with the National Theatre, Festival Hall & Tate Modern. At first we were given a 'compact' room on the...

From the second we arrived to the moment we (reluctantly) left, we were treated like Royalty. This was my mums first visit to London (and her birthday) and the Royal Horseguards went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay excellent. I had informed the hotel beforehand that this was a special occasion and was touched to...

Their services are excellent and our room is huge. All that time, we could connect the front desk to get any information we need. However, it is little disappointed that bathroom has shower only without bath tub and we could not find hair dryer easily (actually, it is on the drawer of a desk in bedroom). We choose this hotel...

Lovely staff and our room was beautiful with a clever use of the space to give it a roomy feel despite being smallish in size. We booked using a special offer which made it excellent value for money. We booked room only as plenty of place to eat within 10 minutes of the hotel over on the Southbank. Ideal location...

Stayed here in March after visiting Savoy and the Ritz. This hotel offers great value for money the service we received from Nathalie with a query far surpassed our expectations. With proximity to main attractions in London the feel of the hotel gave us a truly memorable stay.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood 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.
