Whatever you are looking to find in London, Piccadilly is one of the best places from which to do it. Almost at the centre of the West End, the whole of London lies open to it. If you are looking for some retail therapy, then you can find historic shopping along Piccadilly itself, including the world famous Fortnum & Mason. You are also mere steps away from the flagship stores that line Regent Street, including Hamleys. You are also within easy walking distance of Carnaby Street, Liberty, and Bond Street. For the culture vulture, the theatres of the West End are literally on your doorstep, as you are at the eastern end of Theatreland, and can walk to any of them. You are also a couple of minutes' walk away from Leicester Square, with its cinemas, eateries and drinkeries, and the late night attractions of Soho are just a moment or two away. If you wish to see sights you can walk to Trafalgar Square within a couple of minutes, and on down to the river Thames shortly after. The closest tube station is Piccadilly Circus, which is on the Bakerloo and Piccadilly Lines. The Piccadilly Line runs directly to Heathrow Airport, and so international traveller can get a direct underground train from their airport terminal to within moments of their hotel, provided they do not have too much luggage.
The Thistle Piccadilly was built as a Victorian hotel, and fits in perfectly with the genteel, refined surroundings of Piccadilly. There are 92 bedrooms, and the hotel prides itself on being quiet despite being in one of Londons busiest areas. All rooms offer access to the health and fitness centre, air conditioning, wireless internet access provided by BT Openzone, flat screen LCD TVs with access to Freeview channels, a trouser press, use of bathrobes and slippers, and a wake-up call system. The hotel has no car park, but there is a public car park about 100 metres away. Do be aware if driving to the hotel that you will incur the congestion charge if you do. The hotel has both a bar and a restaurant.
What is perhaps most intriguing about the Thistle Piccadilly, London is its location. It really could not be more convenient for a guest who wishes to throw themselves into the West End and all it has to offer. The rooms themselves are, in some cases, quite dated, but all are perfectly serviceable. At peak times water pressure is occasionally an issue in the hotel, especially when hundreds of guests are showering at once. In all then, if you are in London to sample the excitement of its night life and West End and are unlikely to be disturbed by others who are doing the same, then the Thistle Piccadilly offers utterly unmatched convenience with its location.
