We were transferred to the Royal Horseguards Hotel due to the Tower Hotel being closed. Absolutely delighted with the Royal Horseguards, beautiful hotel, well appointed rooms and just a short walk from st james park, trafalgar square and the london eye.

I definitely won’t recommend this hotel to anyone. Building inside is very old. Carpets in room very dirty and old. Furniture is old. Bath very bad. Flush doesn’t work properly. When you wash face in basen water doesn’t go. I paid lot for room in this hotel but its a waste of money. Big name small show.

The location is amazing. Next to the tower bridge. The food at the hotel was fine. The system at the front desk is too slowly and there was a problem with my payment.

The property is in a good location if you're wanting to hit the tourist spots this side of the city or some other reason to be this side like we were. However the flip side is that it all feels very busy and touristy. We tried to check in a few mins before check in time and were then told to come back in 10 mins to pick up the keys so we waited in the seats nearby. Returned after 10 mins and then were told the rooms weren't ready and to come back in 20. After 20 mins we came back and they still weren't ready so they changed our room (to what I found out later to be a smaller room). Then the keys didn't work so I had to come back down to get that sorted. In all we wasted almost an hour finally getting into our room (this is past check in time as well). The room was small, old and tired and lots needs replacing. It's also noisy (sound travels from the corridor quite badly and the shower in the room). It wasn't very clean too due to the carpets needing replacing. The room was too hot and the cooling didn't work - when I advised them on checkout they said that the heating is controlled centrally and that maybe it was hot because it was sunny. The hotel overall looks like its trying to be grand but is in serious need of renovation and while the room costs can be relatively cheap, I think I would have preferred a budget hotel for a similar price or pay a little extra for a nicer hotel. Not one I'll be returning to.
