... of appetizers with wine, and then dinner. I had shrimp, Betsy had duck. We tried to rest or sleep, which didn't go well given it was about 9:00 pm our time. I watched the second installment of The Hobbit, read a little, played solitaire, and listened to Mike Oldfield, Tubular Bells, an oldie but goodie. We had a light breakfast an hour before landing. We landed in Reykjavik at 6:30 am local time. Interestingly, our flight path skirted by the edge of the earth's darkness and ...

Dinner was very good, we had pre-ordered our dinner and originally had ordered three courses but backed if off to two and I was glad we had. After the food we ate at tea I would have regretted three courses. The Balconies Restaurant is on the left side of the Opera House, our seats ...
I meant to update this blog from the start of the trip, however, we haven't had proper internet until today, so it hasn't been feasible. Sorry for the loooong first post, I promise the rest will be shorter.
We arrived safe and sound after what felt like a never ending journey. We flew Melbourne-KL-Dubai-Gatwick. Up until Dubai, the fights were pretty good and went by fairly quickly. The entertainment choices were good and they fed ...

Saturday morning we were up and ready to go pretty early as we had a lot to accomplish. We had breakfast at the cafe I went to the day before and everyone enjoyed it just as much as I did. I also tried my very first traditional english breakfast which consisted of beans on ...

Then we wandered the Harry Potter shop, tested out some wands but felt much too strong an affinity with Voldemort's so I abandoned all pretense of goodness and unleashed a Basilisk on the store. Safe to say we didn't stay long.
On the way back the girls left to go reorganise their suitcases, while I headed to a different part of the city to do a Grim ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Encore London West
Great value, great hotel
This hotel is well above any other hotel at this price point. The room, the entire hotel and the staff are all first rate, AND they let us check in at 7:30 AM, which is really nice after our overnight flight from the US. I have not stayed at any hotel near this price that comes close, and as it is only a two-block walk from the Tube, which, as everyone knows, is how one travels in London. The pub down the street is a Young's The Castle, is first rate, and with a couple of convenience shops within the block, this hotel lacks nothing. Breakfast was a nice treat, and, while not as large as others we have eaten, had a nice choice and since it was part of the 59 pound rate, a real value. Go here; you will not be disappointed unless you're looking for the Ritz at USD 111. Loved it!
Hotel is pretty but gets left
Many tourists services not available because the hotel is off the beaten path. No shuttle service to and form the airport at the bargain rate. Hotel is lovely but I would not stay again because I rely on public transportation when visiting different countries and I got stuck.
Had a great time!
We were there last weekend. Although check-in time is 2 p.m. we were able to check in earlier. Check-out was simple and bags could be left in an extra room.
North Acton is about 20 minutes from central London by tube. Not ideal if you want to take a rest in the afternoon before you go out, but easy enough to reach in daytime. Right outside the tube station there's a nice-looking pub. The hotel is quite difficult to find at the moment, as an appartment complex is under construction.
Staff at the hotel are very friendly, the rooms (at least ours) are in very good condition. Breakfast is fantastic. Book over the hotel's website, you get the best rates there.
Can only agree that this is an excellent hotel in every way. New, good breakfast, good service etc. Stayed here for 4 nights (2 adults and 1 child) and we really enjoyed the hotel.
The only reason that we donīt give it 5 in rating is that the area around the hotel is very boring. If you like us, like to go back to the hotel in the afternoon and relax a bit, and then go out for dinner later this is not the ideal place.
But if you like to be in London all day and then go back to the hotel to stay this is perfect.
Stayed here for 6 days. The staff is fantastic, the decor superb. It is a three four minute walk to the north acton tube station, which is on the central line, and we used to travel just about 15 minutes to get into central london.
Excellent in every way!!!
This hotel is brand new with and excellent location. It is a short and very safe walk to the North Acton Underground stop (zone two....close and cheap to get into London for sightseeing!). The hotel is very clean with nice rooms and bathrooms. The staff is very helpful...the really went out of their way for us. There is an excellent morning continental breakfast. The hotel even has ice (a rare sight in Europe!). I'd highly recommend the Ramada Encore!
Just come back from a break in London having stayed at the Ramada. We can honestly say its the best hotel we have ever stayed in.
London's best kept secret!
My husband and I stayed here for a week in July. The room was spacious with contemporary furnishings and power shower in the wet room. The only criticism being there are no wardrobes, just open plan shelving which was barely adequate for two people.
The continental breakfast was delicious with plenty of variety.
The staff was both friendly and efficient. North Acton tube was about a 10min walk from the hotel and is on the Central Line.
We liked the hotel so much that we have booked again for December.
Best London Hotel I've Stayed In!
I would recommend for anyone planning a short break in London to check out this hotel. Built in April 2004, it is very contempory in style and is mainly open plan in the public areas. The bedrooms are fantastic - wooden floors, power shower, comfy beds & air con. The hotel has a free car park and is only 2 mins from the nearest tube station(on the central line). I can't praise this hotel enough and will be using it on repeat visits on the capital.
Stupidly easy to find - right off the A40. Ample parking. 5 min walk to North Acton Tube Station - about 7 stops into town on the Central Line. Great friendly service. Fantasic design, comfy seating and TV downstairs. Incorporates really nice oriental restaurant and bar serving starbucks coffee and plenty of alcohol. Clean, stylish rooms with comfy beds, gorgeous bathrooms, TV and internet services. Yummy continental breakfast. Would recommend to anyone and everyone planning a weekend/week doing touristy things in london. Can't say enough good things about it! Got a deal on the web which worked out at about Ģ65 a night which is dirt cheap for something as nice as that. Go there and find out for yourself!
