The hotel was in a great location right near both Goodge Street and Russell Square station. The breakfast was good at the girls at breakfast were very helpful. The rooms were made up daily. The bad however outweighs the good. The hotel is supposed to have a 24 hour reception, when we arrived at 1.30am after a late arrival of... More

The room was small, dark, torn curtain, filthy remote control, noisy and 53 steps up in the attic! only positive was nice staff ! might have... More

visiting London, we found the hotel to be traditionally decorated, clean, respectable, very helpful reception (allowing us to keep luggage in reception even on the last day so we could enjoy the rest of the day without lugging baggage) the hotel room had good facilities, however the traffic was very heavy on the main road very early in the morning....

If you are looking for a noisy, small and unkempt hotel this is the best place in town. Stayed here for 5 nights and had about 10 hours sleep all week as the noise from all bedroom sides and the road is terrible. My room was so small you could not move around safely and had to keep moving my... More

Had a recent one night stay at The Cavendish when attending a course in central London. First thing to say is, at this price point for London (c. £100 per night), don’t expect The Ritz! But there are certainly a number of positives – you’re in a great location in Gower Street, ideally placed for ‘Fitrovia’, all the restaurants in... More

The hotel was rated 3-4 star on booking.com. reality was its more of a 2-3 star version. the hotel has a cramped feel, with small rooms and narrow stairs and corridors. The staff are really friendly and couldnt do enough to help. Breakfast was cooked to... More

This hotel is satisfactory if you are willing to trade prime location (for visiting University College London) and good breakfast for a microscopic room with limited amenities. In its favor are the excellent location for visitors to University College London (across Gower St from UCL) and excellent English breakfasts. The breakfast is cooked to order and includes eggs, grilled tomatoes,... More

I stayed here for one night. I chose it as it was close to Euston for an early train the following morning. The double room consisted of two single beds pushed together. Fine, but one was higher up than the other! The sheets didn't exactly smell fresh. The bedside light didn't work. Lighted flooded in from the hallway into the... More
