Great Central London Location

We stayed in the Every Piccadilly for two nights over a weekend in March. It was one of the most enjoyable city breaks I had which was no doubt added to by the high quality of both the hotel and the staff. While the hotel is situated in one of the busiest locations in Central London (on the main thoroughfare between Piccadilly and Leicester Square), the rooms were the closest you could get to sound proof. They were also very comfortable, clean and modern with free nespresso and soft drink and free unlimited fast broadband. The staff could not do enough for us and even when we had to leave the hotel for a brief fire alarm, they ensured we could relocate to a sister hotel less than a 3 minute walk away. We arrived early and left late but again the had no issue with storing our bags until we checked in or left for the airport. Overall a superb hotel and one I hope to use again in the future

Lovely stay

Booked this hotel as had function at Trafalgar Square to attend and was very impressed with size of room, quieteness and little extra's that they throw in - complimentary water and coke. All in all, a great little find and good value for money (for London!)

Central location

Excellent location especially as it was joined to the theatre we was going to. Rooms were clean and comfortable, area felt safe and hotel was secure. Room was very small but upgrades were available. Good room amenities and good services available in the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout.

Great location, unfortunately construction site in front of rooms

Dear all, The Hotel is fine and in a great Location. The Price is fair and I hope that the Prices are not going up once the Construction Site on the other side of the road has silenced. There is only one remark I have to make! The temperature control Switch did not function in my room and because of that I had no other Option than to turn it off.

Great location

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of January firstly the location of the hotel is excellent, and within walking distance to oxford street shopping, all the west end shows, soho, chinatown, basically we were able to walk anywhere we were looking to go whilst in london, the hotel reception staff were very welcoming and friendly and we were also told on arrival we had been given a complimentary upgrade on our room, which was very nice. Our room was on the 6th floor, it was bright and spacious and the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was very nice spacious and clean also, in our room was also a birthday card, chocolates and a welcome drink courtesy of the hotel as we were celebrating my husbands birthday the day we arrived. I would most definately recommend the thistle piccadilly and will look forward to return to this hotel in the future

Short London break

We chose this hotel because of its location, it is right in the centre of Theatreland and we were going to theatre. The location could not be better we could walk everywhere and that it was cold this is ideal. Who also near enough our favourite shop Fortnum & Mason. The staff were courteous and helpful. The rooms although not big what keen the bed so comfortable the pillows were the right size. There was only a shower in our bathroom, I prefer a bath and I'm just being picky. This is an excellent Hotel for a short mini break right in the heart of London.
