Very good hotel with a high standard of service with staff always ready to help & assist. Also positioned between Green Park & Piccadilly access to the underground was good. Many sites within easy walking with Soho & Covent Garden a short train ride away. In fact on the Saturday night we had a short walk to Her Majesty's Theatre... More

We stayed one night at the Cavendish for our 8th wedding anniversary. We booked it based on reviews and we can only agree with all the positive reviews we had read. Our room, 915, was big and light, and had an amazing view over the London Eye, Big Ben, and the Palace of Westminster. Two wonderful surprises from management greeted... More

I am going to put this simple. After a fair bit of research booked this hotel for our three day city break. Unbelievable location, don't think you can get much better, less than 5 min walk to tube station, shops, bars, restaurants and cafés everywhere nearby. Short walk to Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. Room was amazing and... More

Enjoyed only one night at this hotel, but the room was quite nice - if you are an American be ready for the small bathroom and half shower wall in the bath. Fixtures were modern and new, but it's a bath tub with 1/2 glass wall near shower nozzle so you get water everywhere and the mirror in the bathroom... More

Enjoyed my short stay, lots of nice little touches: face towels, a complimentary bottle of water at bedside - nice not to be charged for such a basic human comfort. Excellent bed, bedding, towels. Very clean. Strong WiFi signal. I experienced only friendly staff people. Not my absolute favorite London area, but I will return for the comfort and nice... More

We loved afternoon tea! Great location, comfortable beds, clean, quiet rooms, easy WiFi, and helpful staff, so we were pleased! The local shopping and dining were great and we could walk to most of the sights we wanted to see and take an easy train trip to the rest. We will stay here again :)
