Not like in the pictures

Would not recommend Sun, Sep 28, 2014
I go to London several times a year and have seen a lot of hotels. Tried this one but won't go back. Booked an executive room expecting it to look like the pics - big and roomy with large oversized windows. Not what I got. It was large by London standards but space was poorly used. The bathroom was more like a corridor and there was a large entryway that was rather wasted. Hotel also has a rather annoying policy of demanding 50 pounds a day from you for booking with this particular website. Supposedly this is "refunded" at the end of your stay, but in my experience it takes much longer for the money to show up; meanwhile you have a higher credit card bill than you expect.

Wonderful hotel walking distance from the best of London!

Would recommend Fri, Sep 26, 2014
Lovely stay at The Royal Horseguards - friendly, helpful staff and an absolutely ideal location, steps from Westminister Abbey, St. James' Park, the London Eye and much more - which was very helpful as I was only in town a few days and wanted to see as much as possible. Beautiful and well-appointed room, always well-kept. From the hidden hairdryer (a high powered one!) and "welcome lighting" effects to a heated bathroom floor, the amenities surprised and brought a lot of smiles. Special thanks to the concierge for helping me with theatre tickets and more. Very special trip for me - got to see Kate Bush in concert! Staying at The Royal Horseguards made it even better. Highly recommend!

Attractions

If you love walking and learning fun trivia and historical facts, take a tour with London Walks! So much fun and an action-packed two hours. Many great themed tours available to match any interest (i.e. pubs, literary London, The Beatles) and each tour costs only 9 pounds. Phenomenal!

Home away from home

Would recommend Thu, Sep 11, 2014
We have now stayed at the Royal Horseguards 3 times and each time we've experienced excellent customer service, comfortable, elegant, and state of the art rooms, and a delicious, peaceful afternoon tea. The location is also ideal since it's walking distance to many tourist attractions, theaters, and restaurants, yet on a quiet side street away from the hustle and bustle of London. I would highly recommend this hotel and we plan on staying here for each return trip to London.

Excellent Hotel and Very Attentive Staff

Would recommend Tue, Sep 2, 2014
Stayed for three days at Royal Horseguards when passing through London on vacation. The hotel was outstanding in every way. The room was very well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom was wonderful, spacious, great bathtub, and heated floors and towel rack. Anytime I needed anything star was very responsive and quick to please.

Mother,daughter getaway

Would recommend Sun, Aug 17, 2014
We loved our stay at Royal a Horseguards; it was centrally located to many of the tourist sights & one block from an underground tube station if you needed to go farther. The concierge was most helpful in getting us Theatre tickets,phoning for reservations etc.We would definitely book there again.

Money saver

Stay centrally,close to tube station; be sure wifi is included in hotel plan

Excellent Staff and Service at The Royal Horseguards Hotel London

Would recommend Fri, Aug 8, 2014
The Royal Horseguards Hotel staff were excellent. They always greeted us with warm and friendly smiles, were extremely professional and ready to assist whenever we had a need. This was first class service all the way

Nightlife hint

Go to the theater district by covent garden area of London. There plenty of nice restaurants for a dinner and show.

A big let-down

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 1, 2014
Room was superb and comfortable. Location was great for us (very close to the theatres). Staff was inconsistent - had to call down for turn-down service one evening. No water at bedside at night unless we specifically asked for it. Telephone charges were exorbitant (local calls starting at one pound each, with a six-pound charge if calling a UK mobile!!) At least one of the three lifts was out of order for our entire stay making the wait for lifts quite long. If I want to stay in a 5-star I would not pick this one again even though the location was great!

Dining

The breakfast coffee and pastries at Paul's bakery (The Strand) were excellent. There is a Costa coffee shop just under the bridge overpass within 100 meters of the hotel for just a cup of delicious coffee or a quick snack.

Mind the Car fees

Would recommend Sun, Jun 29, 2014
The hotel was lovely, the room had an excellent view of the garden, including the London Eye, and was walking distance to Trafalgar Square. BUT! The car company hired by the hotel charged my credit card 3X for the trip from the airport to the hotel. As you may imagine, having 500 dollars less in your bank account than planned can dampen the already damp time in London! My suggestion, use the black cabs or Addison cabs...

Dining

Silver Cross had great fish and chips and London Pilsner!

Excellent hotel near many tourist attractions

Would recommend Tue, Jun 24, 2014
The hotel was very nice! Walking distance to many tourist attractions. The room was a good size, though the bed was a bit small and hard - probably only a downside for Americans who are used to king-sized memory foam mattresses. Very nice bath with separate shower (great water pressure) and tub. Attentive staff. Recommend skipping the breakfast as it wasn't impressive and there are so many other great spots nearby.
