AN INTERESTING CHOICE

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 18, 2014


The Ramada is an interesting choice. It is on the doorstep of the ExCel Exhibition Centre and a short walk to 2 DLR Stations. It also advertises itself as being the closest hotel to London City Airport. Having said that, it is also a little out of the way, but in a quiet and safe area. There is a good selection of restaurants and bars 700 meters away, just walk around to the other end of the ExCel Centre.

If you don't want to walk, then it's the hotel's Stresa Italian Restaurant and the Oval Bar. Despite being right beside the London City airport, I did find it quiet. This was helped by having extra soundproofed windows, having a room at the back and it being night time. The only I problem I had was the sound of doors slamming at times. the door closers on the room doors make every door closing a wall rattling 'Bang!'. I have never understood why any hotel would use such a system. Other than that I found the hotel slightly dated, but good. My room had a desk, free Wi-Fi, coffee/tea facility, Neutrogena toiletries, and ok bed, steam iron/board, and a very large TV. My sleep was ok, but the bed needed a new mattress. Probably guests haven't told the hotel, and I forgot to tell them myself. I found the staff helpful and polite. I also enjoyed my free newspapers in the lobby.

All in all, it was ok. The hotel is more oriented towards work conferences with full board options for companies. If you are a solo traveller, you will want to be aware that this is in Zone 3 of the Tube/DLR network and it can take a while to get to central London. Also there can be bus replacement services on weekends if they are doing maintenance on the DLR.

They do have a small ‘Fitness Room’, but you could go for a job in the nearby area.

Parking is mostly chargeable (up to £2 an hour). Having said that there were plenty of spaces when I was there. The odd thing is they have a limited number of free (no charge) parking spaces, but the can NOT be booked in advance. First come, first serve.

For businesses they offer half and full board delegate rates with all the expected services thrown in.

Unique Quality:

• Air-conditioned rooms
• Treble glazed windows (soundproofed)
• Easy walk to the DLR
• Rooms are good with a steam iron/board, desk, big TV and coffee/tea facility
• Very large TV (limited channels)
• Bathrooms have Neutrogena toiletries, hair dryer, good mirrors and showers
• Free Wi-Fi in rooms and also internet accessible computer (lobby)
• Free newspapers (lobby)
• Italian restaurant with large menu
• Bar with bar snacks
• Good staff
• One of the few hotels in the UK offering Smoking Rooms

Directions:
Car

Ramada Docklands

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 28, 2004

After about 20 or 30 phone calls I eventually found a hotel in Londons Docklands.

The Ramada is more of a buisness hotel rather than a tourists hotel due to the proximity of City Airport, the Excel Centre and Canary Wharf. Having said that we were made very welcome from the moment we walked through the doors.

Our room was on the first floor and although we didn`t have a brilliant view we could see planes take off and land at City Airport.

The room had a double bed, large wardrobe, desk, two bedside cabinets, coffee and tea making items and an iron and ironing board.

Each room has digital tvs with pay per view movies and if you have your laptop with you, you can access the internet by WiFi in your room.

The internet can also be accessed in the bar with WiFiand the hotel reception where there is computer.

The Oval Bar in the hotel served Carling lager at £3.00 a pint, Baileys at £3.00 a shot and Dom Perignon at £95.00 a bottle amongst other drinks.

The hotel is about a five minute walk from the DLR station.

To be Continued

Unique Quality: The location is the unique quality here, the hotel is situated next to the docks and at the end of the runway of the City Airport.

To be Continued.

Directions: The nearest station is Prince Regent on the Docklands Light Railway.
