Cheap and Nasty
Stopped here whilst visting london, never again if you want cheap and nasty then this is fine, the rooms are dirty the so called en-suite is no more than a very small converted walk in wardrope.
breakfast is well, just dont bother go else where is my advice.
got lied to as well, got told the rest of the money will come out of bank, no got asked for it the next morning after stopping there for the first night.
i will never stop here again and i advice people to look elsewhere oko it might be cheap but id rather pay a few extra pounds for somewhere more pleasent.
We have stayed in many hotels. both in London and several other parts of the UK, over the years, but never one like this. I know it is cheap and I was not expecting luxury, but I did expect a certain standard from a 2 star hotel. I had originally booked the accomodation at an other hotel through an agency and paid in advance, but on arriving was told there was a problem with the room and we were being accomodated at a 'sister hotel'. The room was small, the en-suite was a joke. The basin was so small you couldn't wash your face without hitting it on the taps. When the toilet was flushed. it continued to fill up so there was the constant sound of running water. The glasses, which we found in a drawer were lipstick stained and sticky. The double bed had been made up with single sheets and a single bed blanket, so there was nothing to tuck in. Fortunately we were only staying for 2 nights, but I am concerned that the many foreign guests who were staying there go home with wrong impression of English hotels. There are many similarly priced hotels which offer a far better standard than this one. I am writing to the agency to express my displeasure and suggest they check it over before recommending it.
Great Hotel to use as a base to explore London. Its not much; a small room, a smaller bathroom, TV, and a good breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights. Every day the sheets were changed and the room was cleaned. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. I'd stay here again. Its real close to the UNderground Station "Earl's Court" and numerous restaurants are in the area.
Stay away. Stay somewhere else.
Our family spent 4 nights over Christmas. The room was in the basement.
The underground ran right outside our window. The room was dirty and sheets were not changed the whole time we were there. The bathroom and shower was dirty and moldy and the whole room smelled moldy. The staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful with our complaints. The included breakfast was terrible, cold toast, stale corn flakes, warm milk, cold coffee and bugs and the breakfast room smelled and was dirty.
A place to sleep
Since we booked our hotel through Priceline, my husband and I had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Ramsees is conveniently located on the Piccadilly Line so we were able to easily get to and from Heathrow, and the hotel was only half a block away from a Zone 1 tube. The rooms are incredibly TINY TINY. The bathroom was dark and moldy and our shower had ZERO PRESSURE. The hotel is extremely old and it would benefit with some renovation, especially with their windows.
The sink has only a hot and cold option. The hotel staff was adequate for the little price we paid. We discovered that some rooms didn't even have a bathroom, but thank god ours did. This was the smallest shower I ever showered in and the door to our bathroom didn't have a lock and it wouldn't close all the way! I don't know if this hotel lives up to a "2-star" but for the price we paid we can look the other way.
Not as bad as I thought it might be.
I stayed at the Ramsees Oct 27 - 30th 2003. It wan't as bad as I thought it might be. I have worked in the hotel industry 10 years and if anyone is going to be critical of a place it is me. It is basically a place where you go and sleep, and as we were gone most of the day sightseeing it was exactly what we were looking for, and not alot of money, we paid 50 pounds a night. The room was small but relatively clean, you can tell that they do not have the Canadian standards, ie; dusty behind desk, bed etc, but only if you were really looking. The thing that I found the most odd was the 3 foot space that contained the toilet and shower, that was a first for me. Overall a great experience.
The breakfast was good, cereal, toast, coffee, tea and orange juice, kept us going till lunch. I would go back.
2-star should be 1-star at Ramsees
2-star hotel but should be 1-star at best. Expected small rooms but bathroom was as small or smaller than in a motor home! (*However, there was a FULL bath at end of hall.) Water had to run for at least 10-15 minutes to get tepid or at least barely warm enough for a shower.
Mattresses were inner- coil with hardly any padding and very uncomfortable-I layed an extra double-folded blanket under the sheet that helped satisfactorily. However, it IS a budget hotel and we were there for sightseeing and just needed a room for sleeping and bathing so it served it's purpose. I would stay again but would liked to have known what I was getting into up front.
A dilapidated Room; a small, dirty bathroom; and poor management were my experience of this hotel. (The bathroom was so dirty that I had to clean it prior to showering.) Two reservations were made for two different sets of dates. Both were cancelled. The first reservation was cancelled the morning after arriving. The second reservation was cancelled days in advance of my planned stay. The cancellation policy of this hotel is "Cancel By 12 Noon, Hotel Time, 1 Day Prior To Arrival To Avoid A Penalty Of 1 Nights Room And Tax." (Taken from a website featuring the Ramsees Hotel) No monies were refunded by this establishment despite the policy and my requests. Continue your search!! There are many fine hotels in London.

When it comes to the biggest cities in the world, the capital city of the UK, London - is

Once on my flight, of course I commenced with the Christmas songs and browsing British Airways library for Christmas movies - anything to make it feel more like Christmas (because it definitely didn't/doesn't).

I can live with only having a few t-shirts, pairs of shorts and dresses. I don't need all the clothes in my wardrobe at home. Also I have started to worry less about my appearance now as I wore very little make up on the trip, I think I will go out more at home without it. The curly hair is still going to take a lot of persuading to wear out at home but I'm learning ...

Day 2 and after not a terribly good nights sleep ( think I'm still on Melbourne time) we set off to explore the sights of London . The changing of the guards was first on the agenda and what an amazing sight to be seen. Thousands of people lined the streets hoping to get prime position . I don't think I was expecting such an elaborate and pompous exhibition. I was awe struck with the ceremony and know this will go down as one of my favourite ...
