Great location in the heart of London (2 min walks to Big Ben), exceptional service and cozy interiors. Calm and elegant, full of historical spirit of Great Britain. Definitely highly recommended place.

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.

Gave us an upgrade during the tube strike, TV in the shower, heated floors, huge bed, slippers and bathrobes. I felt like a king. Concierge helped us with directions to a pub, the front desk was very pleasant. We had high tea in the restaurant, it was very good and they accommodated gluten allergies. Will definitely be coming back here.

I stayed here with my mother for a weekend in London. The staff were exceptional from arrival to departure. Cocktails in the bar were excellent, room service and breakfast were also lovely. The hotel itself was beautiful and in an ideal location for sight seeing, and then beds were very comfortable. I Highly recommend staying at this hotel.

My wife and I made our first trip to London over Christmas and absolutely loved this Hotel. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the Thames with the London Eye on the opposite side.

We wanted to love The Royal Horseguards and for the most part we did - which is good because we stayed through Christmas and New Year.

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.
