Beautiful, clean hotel

I LOVED this hotel. The building is historic and very beautiful. The rooms were absolutely spotless and very nicely decorated. The free breakfast was excellent and the staff with very friendly, with the exception of the guy on front desk. He was on the phone when I arrived to check in and I waited for 15 minutes for him to finish the conversation, even though there was a queue. He didn't apologise which was a shame. If only he could smile, he would everybody's stay even pleasanter. Still, it's not worth knocking a star off of my review. The other staff more than made it for it. The location was great - very central and close to a wide array of amenities. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Really good for the cost

I was very pleased with the hotel. At first look you might shy away from the location. But it is ok. Very close to bus transportation and good access to and from the train and bus terminal except very early in the morning but a short taxi ride. A little concerned at first by the description of roll in shower in the room but it is a fixed bathroom. Good continental breakfast, clean and comfortable room overall a very good stay for the dollar. Would recomend to friends and will stay there if I go through or visit Vancouver

Clean and comfortable

I found th bathroom appeared brand new.Clean and tidy.A European boutique type of hotel.Located 4 blocks from Canada Place.Only one restaurant(not part of hotel) with a limited menu.However there are 10 restaurants within 2 blocks.They give a free continental breakfast but it is the usual coffee,muffins,bagel,etc..The staff was outstanding.They were a great help.If you stay get a room away from the front as it can be a little noisey.It really did not bother me.They donot have a pool or a workout room.

Great downtown value

Ramada Limited Downtown Vancouver- was great value for money given its' downtown location. You can walk to everything, shopping fine dining, cozy bars, cheap eats etc. The rooms are small but the cost reflects that.Next time I will ask for a room that doesn't overlook the main street as this can be noisy on weekend eves. The included breakfast bar is fantastic, for my family of three, the breakfast probably saved us about $35 a day in extra costs. Front desk staff were friendly & knowledgeable. I'll stay there again for sure!

Great pre-cruise location

This place is in easy walking distance to lots of restaurants and retail. The staff is very helpful to travelers. They provided us with maps of the area and showed us where things were on the map. They even had spare umbrellas for us to use. The building is a charming little place along a storefront. We stayed here the night before sailing out of Canada Place Pier. I would recommend it to fellow cruisers, or anyone with a need to be downtown without a car.

Very elder friendly!!

The ramada limited was a very pleasing place to stay, very public transportation friendly, handy to downtown. Staff was extremely helpful. Liked the idea that it took a hotel key to use the elevator. Breakfast was adequate. Breakfast room was very clean and staff friendly. The neighborhood is a bit seedy, I wouldn't go out at night, but quite safe during the day and an easy walk downtown, the Station, gastown. Very comfy if not small room, but very nice bathroom and a good view of the Harbour Center. Would most definitely stay there again. I'm a senior Lady.

Buy a Bus day pass and ride the skytrain and seabus. A couple block walk downhill!! BigBus Tour was not as expected, I thought it kinda waste of money.

What a great deal, it was a steal!

This hotel was excellent. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The location couldn't have been better, easy walking distance to everything we wanted to see, and we had a lovely view of the Vancouver Tower from our room. The beds were particularly comfortable. Very nice pillows. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Vancouver.
