Ramada Encore London West
Historical Traveler Reviews Rutt Deen Hotel Kolkata (Calcutta)
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.
although at night the area around the tube station is pretty deserted but in general is a safe area so no hassles.
The rooms are clean and spacious. Try getting a room on the backside if you prefer less car honks while you sleep.
If you do not have a converter plug to charge your digital camera, handycam etc, a secret tip is to use the shaver point in the loo. it works!
A downside is that there is no room service, you call and order, they prepare, then call you to collect. Also, there are no wardrobes, just open hanging space on the side, but when you consider the property and the comparitive rates they give you, ti is a fabulous deal. you will not regret it. Will reccommend it to anyone, and will probably use it again myself.
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.
The room we had was on the top floor and overlooked the outskirts of the city, it was clean and very modern with a large tv and internet access. The decor was really funky and the bed was comfortable.
The bathroom was very clean and modern and included a wet-room shower. Room was serviced well every day.
Downstairs there is a large bar area and breakfast area where you can help yourself to a buffet breakfast. Reception was polite and helpful. There is also a secure room for you to leave your belongings on your day of departure if you are not leaving until the evening.
The hotel was very easy to find, just off the A40. There was a large car park at the rear of the hotel.
The tube was honestly a two minute walk away, ideal for getting into central London. It takes approx 20mins to get into the West End.
All in all, this hotel is fantastic value. Highly recommended!!
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!

... people brought their cars and bikes into the city also so traffic is just Awful. A lot of people were walking to work rather than bothering with buses. We finished up doing a tour of the State Rooms at Buckingham castle which are magnificent, especially the art work. We followed it with lunch at a local pub. One thing I'll say about the pubs here, the food is fabulous and reasonably ...

Landed in London at Heathrow Airport 6:30 AM. After a tedious
wait to go thru
customs & a very stark and boring
airport experience, got on the underground (TUBE).

Houses the Diamond Jubilee State coach and the very impressive Gold State coach - watched the changing of the guard - Buckingham palace : saw the queen, prince Phillip and prince Andrew - St James ...
... route. Everyone was out and about good vibe. Did get to see the new prime minister strolling in the park. Yes because it was hot most were making the best of it and were lying on the grass enjoying the great weather. It was 18 degrees. Picnic lunch in Trafalgar Square then back on the bus. Got off and got lost no surprise there but just joined the crowds and watched the various entertainment. Found the bus again and headed home at 6pm. ...
Started the morning off with the first hot breakfast of the trip and started our day off with lectures about sports in England and sports in the UK. Following that lecture we learned some more about football (soccer) some key facts I learned is that there are four different leagues in England that are all connected I knew of other leagues ...
