We had a lower ground floor room. It was clean and well equipped. We stayed two nights and the room was serviced beautifully after our first night. The bed was bit hard and it was squashed into a corner which made it difficult for my husband to get out to visit the lavatory during the night but it was very... More

I recently stayed at the Hotel Cavendish for 2 nights with my mother & sister while we visited London to see a show. We arrived early at the hotel and the very friendly reception said we were more than welcome to leave our bags in the lounge area, use the toilets and explore London until our room was ready. We...

There are many similarly priced hotels in the same street. This one offers similarly sized rooms with similar basic facilities. However everything is a little run down and grotty. Walls are dirty, blinds don't work. It's a little grim. Bed was ok and clean but I wouldn't visit again.

Unfortunately this hotel was booked for me on a non- cancellable basis, so I had little choice. Omens were poor on arrival with a strong smell of industrial cleaning fluid reminiscent of the odour emanating from boy's loos at school after the cleaners have been in. On checking in, I was told I had a room at the front and... More

I am sorry to say there's no way this hotel should be classed as 4 star. I'm not a moaner and this is the first review I've ever chosen to write. But if it helps one person avoid this hotel then my missions a success. The garden looked like a jungle. The windows wouldn't open and had a huge gap... More

Had to book a double as they don't do twin rooms. Room spotlesslyclean, comfortable, modern. The room was small but we didnt go to London to stay in our room so dont let that put you off. The ensuite small as other reviewers say, but we are both not small people and we managed. Bathroom could have done with a... More

Really disappointed with the hotel as I booked this for my girlfriend's birthday, paying a lot of money for what I was told was a 4-star hotel. The hotel was very dated and worn and our room was terrible. There were huge cracks in the plaster in the walls and ceiling, the main door looked very insecure and the lock... More

The rooms was extremely small (2m by 3m) and the bathroom was carved from this surface so the room got even smaller and you were just barely able to walk in it. A lot of dust everywhere I had to do some extra cleaning by myself. The shower is small and crammed and it doesn't even have a shelf to... More

The tiny single rooms are more cramped than a prison cell. There's literally no legroom in the bathroom, the sink is just a bit larger than a cereal bowl and the shower is half-clogged. The overall cleanliness is unsatisfactory. The Wi-Fi connectivity fluctuates a lot. If this "hotel" is ranked 4 (four!!!) stars in London, then the accomodation standards in... More

My friends and I weren't totally convinced by the photos when we booked, but needed somewhere for a short stay at short notice. The room was actually quite big and bright and surprisingly cheerful. The triple room only had a double bed and a pull out sofa (not the comfiest) but wasn't altogether terrible. The bathroom seemed fairly new and... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
