        Ideal location and very good Hotel”

        We stayed for 2 nights in a standard double room, and to be honest didn't expect the very warm reception we received from the staff; with it being in the heart of London's hustle and bustle and such a quality hotel, but modest with it, you expect a stuffy attitude. The staff were friendly, pleasant and were willing to help us out with a few problems, with impunity. The room was a good size with a step in shower. The room wasn't so small as to what you'd expect, by no means is this a no frills hotel, the comfort and peace and quiet after walking round London's fabulous landmarks and attractions has to be stayed in to be believed. When my wife and I booked to stay at Every Hotel Piccadilly, we anticipated having to slug it out regarding noise and late night revelers, staying there. How surprised were we again. I'd recommend this hotel for families and couples, businessmen/businesswomen who would all benefit from the wonderful service, the ideal location, and the amazing peace and quiet.

        Wonderful staff, great location, comfy room”

        Comfortable room a decent size for central London, free wifi, exceptionally pleasant and helpful staff.

        I'll definitely be going back here. The room was very comfortable, with a good-quality office-type chair to work on as well as an armchair, all very contemporary and smart. Very nice bathroom, too, with a large, walk-in shower (why hotels persist in cramming in bathtubs when 99.9% of guests only want a shower is a mystery to me). Wifi is free, as are a couple of soft drinks and mineral waters in the minibar, which is a nice touch - there are plenty of London hotels 2 or 3 times the price of this one that will charge you extra for all that. The room size was fine, better than lots of city-centre hotels, and the corridor decor makes pleasant spaces out of what could have been a poky traditional building. There is a construction site opposite the hotel at the moment, but I didn't hear a sound from it, nor any street noise - I was on the 5th floor of 7. Great location for restaurant choice, and last but not least, the staff are incredibly welcoming and super efficient with it.

        excellent value for money with current london hotel prices. the location is a tourists dream right in the heart of piccadilly. the hotel is being refurbished and its tired decor really needs it but it was fine despite this. my room was clean and bright. the downside was a small room taken over by a huge bed and ugly old fashioned air conditioning that took up the remaining space on the floor. however downside was offset by the truly excellent staff who could not do enough for you. it is a two minute walk to the shops and tube and for those with children there's a macdonalds opposite and many healthier options nearby. can't wait to visit after the refurb if the prices don't rocket.

        Hotel location was excellent and only 5 minutes walk from soho and Chinatown. Main Picadilly station was also another 5 min walk away. Breakfast spread was good and staff were exceptionally friendly. best part was that I got a free upgrade to a business suite! fantastic!
