The Royal Horseguards in London, England

You might still spot politicians enjoying a reprieve from Parliament at The Royal Horseguards. It began life as The National Liberal Club in 1884 and was commandeered by the Ministry of Defense during both world wars to headquarter the M15 and M16, Britain's secret intelligence organizations. After undergoing a full renovation in 2008, sparkling chandeliers and contemporary accents join the oil paintings and rich red and gold furnishings that still retain the air of Westminster.

Stride across manicured lawns to the banks of the River Thames and follow it south. Veer right to walk along St. James's Park. Stare down the stern guards outside Buckingham Palace and give the Queen a nod. Circle back to The Royal Horseguards for afternoon tea and apricot scones on the sunlit terrace. Raise a glass to Churchill at the bar named after him – he was one of The National Liberal Club’s most prominent members.

A friend of mine and myself had breakfast recently in this hotel. Some friends recommended it, so we tried it. It was very nice indeed. The room itself, the food and the service were all on point. The staff was helpful and nice without being too much on you. We’d like to mention Luca for the patience. We kept asking him for things and he’s been excellent all the time. Definetly coming back.

Stayed in most of London’s 5 star hotels , this one had it all for us ... great service , genuine and not over fussy... clean well presented rooms , ours overlooking the river. Didn’t get to try the bar or other facilities , but looked great. Great location too !

We stayed for 3 nights at a discounted rate, but our room and the service we received was first class. The hotel is close to the tube and in short walking distance to places of interest such as Trafalgar Square, and Westminster.

A comfortable and relatively luxurious hotel in the heart of Westminster within easy walking distance of many of the theatres, restaurants and significant sights. The staff are always friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and the quality of the accommodation is first rate. Many rooms have river views. A comfortable and convenient base for most purposes in London.

This hotel is a amazing. On the Thames River, and a short walk over it to the London Eye and all those attractions, as well as a skip and a hop to the Waterloo station, palaces, Trafalgar Square - everything you want when you first visit this city. Parking overnight was outrageously priced, so if you’re driving, consider dumping the car as you won’t need it during this leg of your trip anyway. Everything in the mini bar is included fo you, and even if you use the DND sign, you will find a bottle of water just outside your door in the evening. The bathrooms and rooms are spacious, and the little bar inside is a lot of fun. Make sure, if you enjoy cocktails, to try one of their signature gin drinks - they don’t taste like gin at all. Compared to other, luxury hotels, this is one of my favorites, full of charm, history, and it outdoes it’s pricier competition close by.
