We stayed here as part of a Daily Mail 'Buckingham Palace' trip and having some of the earlier postings, I did have some trepidation. Completely unfounded! Friendly and helpful staff from start to finish, easy check-in and -out, superb breakfast, attentive bar staff. Combined with its central location for the sights and theatre land, the Cavendish fitted perfectly with our... More

Lovely hotel with professional staff - my only complaints are that the rooms are a bit small and the breakfast is overpriced. I assume their average customer is there on business and expensing their breakfast, but they should at least provide a really excellent meal if they're charging £22. Plenty of cafes a block away where you can find good... More

This hotel gets full marks for: Location - absolutely fantastic! Walking distance to theatre district, Buckingham palace but just far enough out so you can't hear the noise of picadilly circus or Leicester Square. Short walk to tube.

The Cavendish is simply the best hotel I have ever stayed at. It is comfortable, clean, and in a great location. The staff, from Catia at check-in, Marco in concierge, to Irina in housekeeping are quite simply, courteous, friendly and highly professional. They made me feel at home. I cant wait to stay again!

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
