Very Good 8.0
Great location, clean hotel and friendly staff
Staff was great, location too and bed comfortable. Walls seem to be too thin and you can hear conversation from other guests which was loud enough to wake us up at 5.30am. That’s about the only negative I have to say. Room was clean and staff happy, friendly and helpful. It was great price for the location.

Fair 4.0
Needs lots of work.
Very old, poorly kept up hotel. Had holes in bed sheet, bathroom light switch in terrible location behind folding bathroom door and door to hallway doesn’t close properly. Tap dripped. Seems major reno is overdue. For price you pay you’d expect they’d have money to do repairs and upgrades.

Time to update the rooms. Very uncomfortable beds, chipping paint, and an overall feeling of dampness.

Bring ear plugs and a helmet!
The bathroom is small and I ended up smacking the side of my head on the towel shelf that juts out into the narrow walkway - still hurts! Its very noisy around the area, and was awoken multiple times with garbage trucks, loud people and other street goings-ons.

Review of the Pickwick Hotel
Given that the location is right in the heart of the financial district, I can understand the rationale for $300USD a night. However, we were unable to check in early and didn't check in until after 3pm. During the duration of our stay we didn't have any hot water. Apparently the hotel was aware if the issue, but couldn't get someone in to fully fix the boiler. In total, during my 3 night stay I had one shower that wasn't warm, but just bearable. As a result of this untimely issue, we weren't in the least but satisfied and all we we offered from the hotel service staff was a drink at their conjoining restaurant. This was not nearly the reparations I was expecting. Hopefully, anyone who visits the Pickwick Hotel in the future has a much more pleasurable experience. Regards, Jeff Coolich

Good and Affordable
Good location and good overall condition for an affordable price. My only problem is the sound isolation between rooms, which wasn't so good. So, if you don't mind a bit of noise, then this is a good choice.
