I just stayed at the Royal Horseguards over the New Year's holiday. The exterior of the hotel is breathtaking and the location is perfect. It is 2 blocks from Trafalgar Square, right down the street from Big Ben and Parliament, and across the river from the London Eye. It would be worth it to stay on New Year's Eve just for viewing the fireworks. The room was nice, clean and large by European standards. I loved the heated bathroom floor and heated towel bar. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty. I only had two complaints. One is that there was no top sheet or blankets on the bed. There is just a duvet. The cover was changed daily, but it was very warm and there were no other covers. Secondly, some staff were not as helpful as they could have been. For example, the bellman didn't explain anything about the operation of the lights. It took awhile to figure them out. We called down to ask how to control the volume on the TV in the bathroom, were told there was NO sound. Just before we left, we figured it out. Also we had no hot water - barely warm enough for a shower - for the last three days of our visit. I reported it twice, but was just told each time that they would report it. Also, the computer in the business center didn't work well at all. All that said, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
