6/10 Good

Ho Hum
The central location is the best thing about this hotel. It’s an older property that’s been redecorated to seem like a “boutique “ type hotel. The rooms are decent size but there’s very limited room to store your clothes. Sticky carpeting. Two of the nights we were there there was no hot water in the entire hotel from 9pm to 9am due to boiler maintenance issues. No bar or restaurant on property.

Thistle Piccadilly and Trafalgar Square
We booked a 2 night stay at the Thistle Piccadilly. Our flight to London was cancelled last minute so we were unable to make the first night. I tried to phone the hotel directly to tell them to hold the room but there was no answer from the front desk so I called the help. They said they talked to the hotel and the room would be held. When we finally arrived around noon the room had been given away as a no show. Apparently the hotel’s central reservation cancelled it. At first the front desk said they could it help me. Again called who talked to central reservations. Finally the hotel said they could get us a room at the Trafalgar Square sister property very close by. I must say, once the hotel agreed they had made an error their service was amazing, and they went out of their way to get us settled, and we had a very nice room. I’d say 5* for everything except for the communication between hotel and their own central reservations, and me not being able to reach the Thistle’s front desk.

Clean and Comfy
Clean and very comfy bed. Excellent location and very quiet considering proximity to Leicester square. Bathroom a little tired. 2 complaints - very poor quality toilet paper and we hung our towels up to reuse but they were taken away anyway.

The telephone did not work, we had to go down to the reception to get tissue paper, and more toilet paper and there was not enough towels for three people. The air conditioner was set and didn’t allowed adjustment by us. The temperatures during our stay were above 85.
