I chose this hotel due to location and cost. The old adage of you get what you pay for springs to mind. The room was small but not as small as a colleagues in the same hotel.

Unless you want people walking above your head all night and to be disturbed by the incredible number of vehicles that run down Gower Street all night long. First night, the cold and noise combined to wake me up numerous times. I found the radiator on the second night but had to turn it off as it was too hot!!!... More

Stayed for one night in August when my father and brother came to visit. Walked in after trying numerous hotels (all of which were fully booked) room had a double bed and a sofa bed for the three of us (not a problem). Slept well, room was well decorated and clean. Only comment would be breakfast; portions were rather small... More

A laptop and all accessories were stolen from my locked room at the Hotel Cavendish. Only hotel staff would have been able to access the room without damaging the lock. Staff were very unhelpful and never responded to requests for a statement for my insurance

The first visit to Hotel Cavendish was fine but on my second visit, I was not impressed. There were hairs on the pillows. The concierge apologised profusely and replaced them for new clean pillows. The shower was boiling hot and couldn't be turned to a moderate temperature. The blinds were dirty and dated and a stained lamp shade on an... More

We stayed here on a Friday night for easy access to my exam in the morning. Was quite a pleasant stay on the whole. No major issues during our stay. Room was clean and tidy. Staff pleasant and helpful. Was fairly quiet. Bathroom was sufficient, although the shower could have been more powerful, not much water was coming out at... More

I stayed here one night this week for work and paid £155 for the privilege. At this price, the hotel was poorly maintained and with few facilities, as well as the inevitable small rooms for an older building that had been converted. staff were, however, friendly and there was WiFi.

Not affordable as we booked last minute. The entrance to the hotel is impressive but that's where it finishes. Once you go beyond reception you are into a maze of corridors. The walls in the hall ways are damp. Our room was the best out of the 2 rooms we booked but still it looked tired and dated and in... More

Having read some of the reviews (and you have to read through the lines as some people have far to high expectations in life!) I didn't expect anything but a basic decent hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised! Yes the hotel is basic, as in there's no grand foyer or modern open rooms..but for goodness sake - when all you...

Very tired hotel. Room at the top of two flights of stairs and not very impressive. Bathroom tired, shower cubicle had signs of mould and shower head needed attention - it was unable to be held secure other than by hand and desperately needed de-limescaling. Carpets well vacuumed but very stained. One curtain needed to be attached to rIail at... 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.
