Le Meridien Piccadilly
- What's Included
I was very impressed with the hotel . . . check-in service efficient, the restaurant had a good selection of items both for breakfast and lunch, and the concierge was exceedingly attentive and helpful.
needs a lot of updating,staff and rooms,having to use room key card in the lift is a nightmare,if you just use the hotel as a base location is great,standard rooms are small with only room for 1 person in the bathroom at a time,have stayed in much better 4* hotels in london
The location doesn't come much more central - a few steps from Piccadilly Circus, and a heritage building that is one of London's landmark hotels. Unfortunately, Le Meridien Piccadilly is an example of a nice place that's being slowly done to death by shoddy management.The rooms are generally reasonably sized for central London, but tired - cracked bathroom sinks, peeling paint and windows that are grubby and don't seal properly. The level of attention to detail in service leaves a lot to be desired - room cleaning is patchy, with a room service tray hanging around for four days (it became an experiment to see just how long it would get overlooked).The gym is something of a disappointment, too - a full 50% of equipment was broken while I was there for a week. The lockers don't lock unless you know the secret is to find one of the elusive staff and get them to provide a padlock, and the changing rooms are borderline filthy by early evening.It's never a good sign when housekeeping equipment is left lying around in corridors for days on end - a dead giveaway that management don't take the effort to check their establishment. They probably don't need to, though, because this place is kept afloat by corporate travellers who either don't care or overlook this kind of shoddiness.If someone else is paying for you, overlook the detail and it's a perfectly OK hotel. If you're springing for the premium price, though, you can do a lot, lot better for the money elsewhere.
Stayed here with my family just before Christmas. Loved the location of the hotel, so central near all our favorite stores and restaurants, but the service at the hotel was mediocre at best! Continental breakfast was so overpriced and selection very limited. Service at breakfast was slow and sloppy- had to practically beg for attention and refill off coffee. Also nothing vegetarian or greens to choose from. On the positive side the selection of berries and cut fruits was a welcome surprise! Housekeeping and cleaning of rooms was sloppy. How about taking out all trash and tidying the bed properly? Seriously, for what we paid for the stay, I had expected more.
If you're looking for a hotel with easy access to all the London sites then the Meridien's location can't be faulted. Just 100 metres from Piccadilly tube station and only 20 minutes from Euston. (It's also only 50 metres from one of London's best coffee, chocolate and nut shops - Carpo, really worth a visit).The reception, bar and terrace are smart and elegant, Staff generally very friendly and helpful. Concierge was knowledgeable and recommended a great Italian 'Getti' 2 minutes walk away.Unfortunately the rooms are very very tired and fall far behind the standards of other 5 star (and some 4 star) hotels that I have stayed in, in London at a similar price. Plastic shower curtain in a five star hotel - seriously !!!, Family room 349 was very large and quiet, beds comfortable. The breakfast was best described as adequate, with the selection / quality being 3 to 4 star. (asked for a cappuccino 3 time which never came) So to sum up, if location is key and you're not too worried about the room / breakfast then the hotel is fine, otherwise there are better hotels to choose from at this price.
