Handy Holiday Tips for Choosing Your Dream Accommodation


Hotel booking may seem simple enough, but when you unpack it there are a whole host of queries which could complicate your decision. Whether you’re visiting with family or friends, finding the right hotel for your trip could be the icing on your vacationing cake, and could turn an ok holiday into the destination of your dreams. With Piccadilly hotels, we make sure you know exactly what you’re getting and ensure that everything is as you want it to be upon arrival. With boutique hotels like ours, the boutique and tailormade experience is our key focus, and customer satisfaction is vital. Below are some of the best ways to ascertain the best boutique hotel for you, whether travelling to London or beyond.

The perfect location

When choosing your perfect hotel, it’s a good idea to ensure that you have chosen the right location for your trip. If you are visiting on business, then it’s best to stay near business centres and financial hubs, especially if you are going to be setting off on excursions throughout your stay. This will save you money on transport as well as time on travel. If you’re visiting the city with your family or friends, then it’s a good idea to stay as centrally as possible, or closer to the attractions you want to visit. Of course, everyone will have their own personal preferences when it comes to accommodation, from the leafy tranquillity of London suburbs to the buzzing excitement of West End hotels.

What is your budget?

Budget is key to a well-planned hotel trip. Make sure that when you book your hotel that you are within you, or your companies’ budget. This may factor in a range of monetary requirements and compromises, whether that be splashing out a little more for a larger family room or reigning in the hotel budget to accommodate for that expensive evening event you really want to attend.

What’s your style?


Boutique hotels are named so because of their individuality. As well as a luxurious room, a boutique hotel should come with its own unique personality. Find the style to suit your tastes, whether your penchant for international cuisine takes you to a hotel which serves Indian High Tea, or you’re looking for a hotel dedicated to showcasing music and entertainment.

Accessibility and needs

Consider your needs as a guest at your hotel. If you are visiting with or yourself have a physical disability, then make sure that your hotel can accommodate for this. This may mean staying at a hotel which is near to the areas you will be visiting during your stay, or it might mean finding a location close to the airport. If you have allergies or dietary requirements, it’s important that you are staying at a hotel which can accommodate for that.

Get the full package with your amenities

Amenities are a big bonus for any boutique hotel. Whether that be a fully loaded mini bar or our Piccadilly Beauty and Melody Spa located on site, you need to ensure that you get everything you want and need to ensure you get your moneys worth during your stay.

Price comparison websites

The key to finding a great value hotel room is to do your research. Price comparison websites can help you decide whether it’s better to buy a room through the hotel website or a third-party booker. The more research you do, the more likely you are to find the deals which could really save you money during your stay.
