Great place to stay in St. James

My wife and I just stayed at the Cavendish and really enjoyed it. Its location is fantastic and within walking distance of Traflagar Square, Soho, Covent Garden and the monuments in Westminster. The hotel's lobby is not the Ritz, but the rooms are great- both stylish and comfortable. They are close to being on par within with the highest quality hotels out there. The bathrooms in the better rooms are really great as well- spacious with both a tub and a shower. The rooms on upper floors have amazing views of London if you can get one. The staff was very helpful throughout our five day stay there. We highly recommend the Cavendish as an alternative to some of the even more expensive hotels in downtown London.

Unexpected Find

I booked the hotel based on previous reviews and price. Have to say the place was great. Location couldn't be beat as it was central to all the great areas. The staff was very helpful and always there if you needed them. As it was off of Piccadilly the streets were quiet so there was no outside noise and never heard anything from the people next store. Only complaint is the room was small, as many London hotels are, but did feel a bit cramped. Overall we would stay there again.

Fantastic family getaway, quiet and comfortable room.

We had a great time spending five nights at Convenish. Location is great - it is located at a quiet street within walking distance to most happening places e.g. bond st, oxford, piccadilly, china town etc..... Hotel staff are generally helpful. Room is clean and comfortable. Will not hesitate to pick Cavendish for accomodation if we revisit London again in future.

Great location and delightful staff

The staff at this hotel were professional and friendly. The location was ideal, as we could walk nearly everywhere we wanted to go, with some occasional tube rides. My one complaint was that our room was so small that there was no room for a dresser. We had to live out of suitcases. This was frustrating as we were there for a week. Otherwise, excellent!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Short walk to Green Park stop on the tube. You can take the tube all the way to Heathrow. Takes under an hour and costs less than 10 pounds.

location and breakfast

My mom and I had a mother-daughter vacation to London this past week, but only stayed here for 3 nights over the weekend. (stay 2 nights, get the 3rd night cheaper deal is what we did). However, to stay longer (during the week) got much pricier per night. This hotel seems geared towards corporate travel, but my mother and I enjoyed it just as much. I can't say enough about the breakfast. Since we were touring all day, we only ate breakfast and dinner and the Cavendish had an amazing breakfast and top-notch service. The Cavendish is also in a really nice location - restaurants, tube stations and bus stations. I felt that London's public transportation system seems a lot easier to navigate than NYC (I live in the tri-state area of Manhattan). When I return to London, I would either stay here or somewhere in this same area or in Kensington/South Kensington. These (to me) seem to be the best areas to stay in if you are visiting London.

Great location for a London visit

The Cavendish is situated in the heart of London, all a 5 to 10 minute walking distance from the Green Park station (Tube), St. James Park, Buckingham Palace, Picadilly Circus, and all the must-see sites of London. During our 2 day and 3 night stay, we hardly ever used the train or bus because everything was in proximity of the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A little pricey, but worth the money for such a short stay.

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.

Perfect hotel to enjoy a meal or shopping at Fortnum and Mason (next door). Close to transport and shopping. The rooms were nicely decorated with modern bathrooms. The only thing missing was a mini bar. Front desk staff could have been a tad friendlier but otherwise a good stay.

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.
