I stayed for 2 nights and was perfect for a quick trip. Any longer and I would have found it uncomfortable. While rooms are reasonably well designed, to make use of the space- toilet and shower is virtually in one room partitioned by a glass box. The room itself is small, the width of double bed end to end. This room would be a huge squeeze for 2 people! There is no storage space or any space to unpack and get organised for the day- I had to pack everything up and unpack on the bed to make sure I could move around. BUT given that, it is still clean, well appointed and modern so while you miss out on a little comfort, you gain on the great location. A mere 3-5min walk to Piccadilly Circus, soho and tube. As mentioned, on a short stay in the city, the cost of staying here was out weighed by the pure amount of time saving I gained by being able to get around quickly and efficiently in the 2.5 days I had. The staff were very welcoming, however the reception area and entrance can be a little confusing as it doubles as the restaurant/cafe/bar servery. Automatic door would not go a miss here either as I battled to carry 3 bags through and open the door at the same time- but I was offered a glass of champagne on arrival which quickly dissipated my annoyance! There are complimentary refreshments available right through the day as well as complimentary beer & wine from 5-7 with nibbles and snacks.
A couple of things I would like to see improved is; a soap holder or shelf in the shower, better toiletries on offer given price for the room, and to not see half a dozen staff smoking, squatting and congregating 5 meters from the main entrance- it just looks tacky, given how relatively slick everything else is.
Otherwise, a great place for a shorter stay- with great access to the city.

My wife and I were staying at the hotel last week for 7 nights.
The moment we arrived we were treated great by the very friendly hotel staff and especially by the hotel extraordinarily manager Mr. Ahmed Salah who took care of all our needs and even provide for us affordable taxi to Heathrow Airport.
The hotel is modern and the rooms are small but equipped with all necessary.
The most importantly it is located at the most central of London and close to underground stations.
The hotel is highly recommended and definitely affordable.
No doubt we will return to stay in this hotel at the future and we also recommend visitors to London to stay in this hotel.

Hotel Z Piccadilly exceeded my expectations, by far! Excellent location, great price, friendly staff, exceptional customer service, & the rooms are quiet, clean, & modern. I don't usually write reviews, but I had such a great experience, I wanted to share & give them some credit, too. I will definitely stay here again if I'm ever in London again.

I found this hotel priced at £75 for the night, for the location 5 mins walk from Picadilly was fantastic value. For once the reviews all seem to be accurate!
We arrived early in the day too early for check in so the helpful staff stored our bags while we walked around town until the evening. Once we got back we were told about the free cheese and wine between 5 and 8, which was totally unexpected and a great bonus.
We checked in to the room which is best described as “compact”. The double bed touches the walls, where there is a huge TV with full Sky channels, a side table with coffee making facilites and a frosted glass wet room/toilet. Clearly they have tried to fit as much in as possible and though tight did not feel cramped. Everything in the entire hotel looked and smelt (carpets) brand new (we later found out the hotel had only been open a month and a half).
We decided to skip the £7.50 for breakfast as there are plenty around for that price or less but if the cheese and wine were anything to go by it was probably very good.

The staff were all friendly and very helpful. If you're looking for a well located place to crash Would thoroughly recommend.
