Thistle Piccadilly

Fantastic location, very central, especially for the Theatres. Highly delighted with the room, very spacious and clean....


Great location lovely room.

The hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of picadilly circus. Was a little afraid of the noise, however the sound proofing was excellent. Unfortunately during our stay there was a fire in a shop 2 up from us which ment we got evacuated. Luckily for us the other Thistle hotel is 50 meters away so we got told to go there and wait further instructions. My only thought would be to improve on communication if in future a incident would arise. Apart from that, staff very helpful, breakfast lively and had a lovely weekend....
