Close to transport at the junction of Mayfair and Piccadilly
The Cavendish London is located a five-minute walk from both the Green Park and Piccadilly tube stations. At the junction of Mayfair and Piccadilly, this hotel is close to shopping, theaters, and art galleries. Mayfair is a quiet, upscale district with a posh reputation. Piccadilly Circus is a more bustling neighborhood with street performers and bigger crowds. This hotel is convenient for exploring central London on foot or utilizing the quick and easy underground to reach different neighborhoods and attractions.
Elegant comfort with contemporary colors
Rooms at the Cavendish London blend classic furnishings with contemporary pops of color. Beds have plush linens and rooms feature a mix of fabrics, including everything from leather to velvet. All rooms have iPod docks, bedside in-house filtered water, electric kettles, minibars, and flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms are generously sized; some rooms have separate tubs and showers.
Not much in the way of amenities -- just a business center and meeting spaces, but no fitness center
The Cavendish London is known for its reasonable rates and central location more than its features.
