Excellent Location

We stayed for the after X mas shop in London. The ideal location for the Bond And Regent Street. Also. Tube connetcted us eveywhere in London including LHR. We will definitely return for shopping but it seems business support a bit weak judging from no free wifi in the room.

Super friendly staff

Just spent a week here with my 20 year old daughter. Couldn't have asked for more from every staff member we met. Concierege (especially Mo) was helpful and spot on with all recommendations. Room was perfect....large bathroom, comfy bed, amazing view. Location was good although local dining was a little difficult. Great little pub right next door. Very accessible to The Tube which made sight-seeing easy.

Location is outstanding

I've stayed the Cavendish before, and the location is just superb. It's close to all the sites you want to see, and it's in a an area that is a bit tucked away from all of the high traffic areas. It is rather pricey, so if you are staying for a couple of nights it is a great option. The staff has definitely improved since the last time I visited, in the sense that they are much more friendly and cordial. It was excellent.

Location perfect, all else quite good

Truly the perfect location for vacationing in London. And by our standards, everything else was all we could ask for. Granted, we're not too picky, and our focus was on the city and not the hotel. But there was nothing to complain about, so I won't.

This hotel is not reviwed or recommended by many but it is exceptional. The room was spacious and the staff helpful. Not overly luxurious but very good location in St James, around the corner from the Ritz.

Easy access to London!

Perfectly located for pretty much anything you want to do in London. Situated between Green Park and Piccadilly Circus Tube stations - you're in walking distance to Buckingham Palace or Piccadilly Circus right off the bat! As it's off the Piccadilly line, you can get here from Heathrow without changing lines and for a much better price than taking a taxi! Hotel is just behind Fortnum and Mason. The hotel is comforable and very clean. Staff are friendly. I had a standard room and was in London for 7 nights. Although technically small by North America standards, it was a good size for 1 person. For 2 people it might be too small (consider upgrading) if you spend a lot of time in the room (not a lot of space to move around for 2 bodies). Private in-room bathroom - which I always check for when traveling in Europe; also clean. Only a shower (no tub) but I knew that and didn't need a bath tub so no issue. Good enough space in bathroom to dry off from shower; has a towel heating rack too (never used one before, so cool)! There is a closet and a safe in the room as well as a desk. Hotel provides a bottle of water, free of charge, that is refilled when room is cleaned - which I thought was a nice touch as most hotels would charge for it. TV has limited channels but there is the ability to purchase movies if so desired. Also a daily newspaper is also provided free of charge each morning if wanted. WiFi is available in the hotel room but it is a daily cost, which is not cheap. I only bought the service on 1 day and can state that the signal is a good strength. You can, however, get free service in the common areas of the hotel - I just didn't find it convenient to go to those areas as I needed it later at night and didn't want to leave my room. The breakfast buffet was good with a lot of standard selections as well as the ability to order a la carte if you wanted something else. It is not a cheap option and certainly being located a block from Piccadilly Street, there are a lot of other options for breakfast so I only ate here once. Room service is also available (I didn't use it). From Green Park Tube station you can get to Victoria, Euston or King's Cross or St. Pancras International train stations. Easy travel for a day trip to Paris or Brussels!! I did both and it was awesome. Catch the earliest train out and latest train back for a full experience! From Euston station - easy to take the overground train to Watford Junction train station for the Harry Potter tour at Warner Bros. Studios. Worth the money if you are a Harry Potter fan. Also don't forget to visit the 9 3/4 platform for a fun picture at King's Cross station! I went to see Wicked!, which was easily reached from Victoria Tube station. Highly recommend it! For night life and if you like crowds, nothing beats being around the people at Piccadilly Circus. Great restaurants or a quick bite to eat. Many well priced stores for British souvenirs! Also close to the theatres! Also in walking distance to the Hard Rock Cafe, which is just a few blocks from Green Park.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Although the hotel will advertise it's by the Piccadilly Circus Tube stop (probably because it's famous) it's a shorter walk from the Green Park stop. This stop also connects with Jubilee and Victoria lines, which means it is a better stop for connections. Green Park is also the Tube station in front of Buckingham Palace (walk through Green Park park)!

Lovely hotel, great location, good value

If you are going to the theatre and enjoy staying in the heart of London this is the perfect hotel for you. Hotel is located on Jermyn Street and location is quiet and provides tranquility essential for a good night's rest. Rooms are moderate in size but more than ample. Recommend.

London position "A"

For a London visit the location of the Cavendish could not be better. Within walking distance to Picadilly Circle and major shopping opportunities on Picadilly St., Regent Street, and St. James. Also easy tube connection out of Picadilly and Green Park stations. Standard room is small by American standards but nicely decorated and equipped with a contemporary look and flat screen TV. Hotel staff attentive , friendly and knowledgeable.

Annual trip to London

The Cavendish is a wonderful hotel with a great location. Walk to Green Park tube station and right behind Fortnam& Mason. Visited British Museum, Art museums, science museum, Mozart Concert at St. Martin's in the Field. Went to 3 plays and a movie. Found new restaurants just by walking around. Great trip. Going again next year.
