We have stayed at this property numerous times and always enjoy it but at present it is looking a little tired and could do with some maintenance and attention to cleaning in some areas such as the inside of the lifts.

A beautiful hotel in the best location. Opposite the hotel is a beautiful park, not far away is a subway station and several good shops. One great Mr. receptionist helped me change my room, because I had a room facing the courtyard and with frosted glass, which was not obvious from the room order. I would like to thank him for this help and I look forward to this hotel on my next visit to London. I will definitely always and gladly use it this perfect five star London hotel.***** Thank You once again,Lukas.

This was our second time staying at the Royal Horseguards. We really appreciate the attentiveness of the staff and on both visits we’ve had awesome rooms overlooking the Thames. The bar can make any cocktail you throw at them and there is always a little something extra to make the visit extra special.

We stayed on Friday night to have better access to the coronation parade on Saturday morning. It was lovely and very accomodating. If only the parade weather had been as sweet as the Royal. Faroq was the sweetest help for us.

Fantastic area to be located if you plan to/want to walk everywhere. I don’t think we had to walk more than 35min to get to the furthest landmark. Very lively area at night by the bridge so you’ll feel safe and we’ll lit walking home. Also, there is a convenience store about a 2 minutes walk from the hotel that has plenty of water, snacks, and beer/wine/liquor. Great view from the north facing window overlooking the London Eye and river. Expect there to always be a little bit of construction here or there outside the window (it’s all over town randomly). The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was outstanding and very reliably ready at 7am sharp.
