    Historical Traveler Reviews Thistle Piccadilly London

    Don't stay in the summer


    we stayed at the piccadilly thistle last week during an abnormal heat wave in london and the hotel which supposedly had air conditioning couldn't cope with the heat. the rooms were stifling and the dining room for breakfast so hot people walked out . we opened the windows to get some air and the noise from the square was so loud until 4am we couldn't sleep. the room was nice and the food was good. too bad about the heat.

    Nothing to commend it other than its location.


    Excellent location. Lengthy wait to check in. Room was very small and not especially comfortable, despite having paid for an upgrade.

    Great location but loud at night


    Got very loud at 2-3 am not get a room facing the street but great central location lots of cafes restaurants and nightlife.

    One block to piccadilly tube station. Yummy big breakfast. Staff very nice and helpful. We recommend the london walks tours

    Fantastic Location!!


    Our first time in London and we wanted to stay somewhere central - Soho region. This is the best location, right in the heart of the theatre district, literally looking over Leicester square (where you can buy the last minute theatre tickets at TKTS booth). About 2 min walk from the Piccadilly Circus tube station. Hotel room was spacious and A/C worked well. Bathroom was quite dated and worn down though. Friendly efficient staff and good breakfast with choice of cooked or cold foods. We stayed on the 5th floor and really didn't hear much noise at all from the streets below. We would definitely stay here again.

    Great location. tacky rooms!!


    stayed here a easter weekend. very central location but very noisy, especially at around 4am!!!!rooms really need updating. wallpaper coming off scuffed and tatty paintwork. bathrooms very seventies. and really tatty. very clean though and the staff are lovely and helpful. breakfast was fantastic. better to stay at the thistle about 50yds down the road much more modern and close to trafalgar square. a 2 star hotel at 4 star prices due to the convenient location.

    Fantastic Great Location


    Stayed here Sunday 14th March for three nights, I was down in London on business and chose this hotel because of other reviews.

    The location was great, concierge was fantastic could not be more helpful with tubes, taxi's, shows etc, would certainly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure, upgraded to a Deluxe Room and it was lovely.

    The location is superb you could not be closer to everything, stayed on the 6th floor and really did not hear any noise, although they are doing drilling next door so if you were in during the day you would cetainly hear the noise.

    Great location, no frills, a bit loud


    I've stayed here about ten times over the last several years, mainly for the location. You are right in the middle of the west end - shops, theatres, pubs, etc. Rooms are clean with a mix of new and old decor and are tastefully furnished. For a real treat, ask for a corner room (109, 209, 309, etc) as you'll look right down into Leicester Square.

    If you stay on a weekend it gets rather loud at 3AM when the streets below fill with noisy drunks. Book well in advance, as it is regularly sold out. Overall, I'd recommend it.

    Oi, this hotel is a great choice!


    We stayed here four nights in December 2003. I picked this hotel for its location and must admit that I was not disappointed! It is centrally located to everything - sights, shopping, and nightlife. We had a superior room on the 6th floor, with windows overlooking Leicester Square. I'm a sucker for a good view, and we were thus very pleased. The heater was a little finicky, but the concierge was very helpful and brought us a lovely space heater. The room and bathroom were very large, comfortable, and clean. The service was pleasant and the full breakfast buffet, which was included, was really a great way to start the day. Would return here without hesitation!

    Great location


    well, i must say that the location is definitely what gives this hotel a five star rating in my books. i couldn't imagine being in a better spot in london. the hotel wasn't anything over the top, but was nice and clean. as i said, there is no better location to stay in london.

    you really are right at the centre of everything.

    Great Location


    I stayed at the Thistle Piccadilly-in August 03. The hotel is located in the heart of london. Minutes from Soho, Bond, Oxford, Chinatown. We were in Love with the location. The hotel is nice and clean. Nothing fancy. The breakfeast was very good and the staff is very nice.

    Our first day was about London.

    On the tube, $15 a day for as many rides as you want, we did about 8 or 10 this day. Only one snafu, I jumped on, the door caught me on the arm, Norma missed the ...

Prince William & Kate live there and news crews were lined up because they had word that there would be an official announcement there at the Palace. The announcement came just after we left, Kate is expecting again. Today we were up early and went to the Tower of London via a Thames River cruise. It picked us up at ...

    Pre- trip info: return cars at 15.00; flight VS08 LA terminal 2 (leaves 16.55) Sadly all too soon it was the last day. The holiday atmosphere changed and the minutiae of daily life at home started to creep back into our thoughts as well as packing and leaving arrangements. It had been a late night at the Dodgers match so those that had planned to meet in the gym at 7.30 (presumably to tone ...

    ... only the street in front of us. Sharon got tossed around a bit in the crowd and wasn't too pleased. For a country that has such a reputation for perfect etiquette, these people were rude! We really couldn't see much after that. The throng of people standing on the sidewalk directly in front of the gate was too thick. No problem. We can always youtube it later. That will guarantee us a great view! On to the next!
