Last hotel on our month long trip. Room and bedding very clean. The decor was tired and dark.
Staff very polite and helpful.,
Breakfast was self service, and a 'scrum' at peak times. Again the room was dark.
Location was convenient for downtown and easy walking distance for the metro station for the train to the airport.

We booked our stay on the app Hotel Tonight and ended up paying only $75US for our two double bed room! The value is incredible. Our room was the perfect size and the staff was very friendly. The location is good because you can get around on the buses and it's surrounded by great little restaurants. I do have to say that I was shocked by the amount of homeless people on this street. It literally astounded me. But the hotel itself is great. I would definitely stay here again. :)

Dear Lily,

Thank you for your recent stay and for taking time to review the hotel.

We appreciate your comments and I am happy your were able to make use of a last minute special for your stay. You are quite right on your homeless comments regarding Vancouver. Our mayors plans to get housing for all and everyone off the street, has created a great environment for homeless throughout our city and with such a temperate climate and so many social services there is really no urgency for some to actually find housing.

We look forward to serving you again on a return trip through Vancouver. Give us a call direct and see what we can do for you direct.

Kind Regards

Let's start with the good : the staff. Every one who dealt with us was great and very helpful. The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. It's also centrally located for all touristic things.
However, I cannot give a better rating as the rooms need a revamp. The room we had was cramped, the carpet stained and the window opened onto a wall about a metre away from it. Would not have stayed there more than a day or two.
The breakfast room was too small for the number of people trying to use it and the choice very basic! Wish I'd known that as despite it being included in the price of the room, I would have found a cafe or restaurant for my breakfast.

My husband and I stayed at the Ramada on Granville St on 3 occasions within 2 weeks for a total of 7 days and found the hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They helped us plan trips to Victoria and Grouse Mountain and upgraded us to a suite on our last visit. The rooms were all of a good size, clean with excellent beds and linen.
We were concerned at first about possible noise from the bars close by but there was none even on a Saturday night. We were on the 4th, 5th and 6th floors and had no problems sleeping.
The hotel is centrally located and it was an easy walk to the metro or to catch the bus. There were also lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from.

Room Tip: Higher floors may be quieter

Dear Susan S,

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel and for your recent stay with us.

We appreciate your feedback and your advise to future travelers. Our hotel had become a much quieter location with the closure of Ginger 62 nightclub and new plans for the space. I am so glad our team was able to assist you with your travel planning and each of your 3 stays was positive.

We look forward to serving you again on a future trip through Vancouver

Kind Regards

This was my first visit to a Northern American City, so maybe this is why I was so shocked. The hotel itself was pretty basic, but was clean. The rooms were a good size, and the bedding was crisp. Our bedroom looked onto the back of the building so was quite quite (apart from the shouting of youths during the night). However, it was the walk to the hotel that was not a pleasant experience. I am a young woman, and I was travelling with a group of other young people and I can safely say that none of us expected to see so many homeless people and beggars scattered along the street the hotel was on. We only stayed one night, and were planning on going out in Vancouver, but after seeing where the hotel was positioned we all felt uncomfortable and vulnerable. The street was also filfthy, with cigarette butts everywhere. Really not a pleasant area of Vancouver. The transport links into the city are superb, so I would recommend travellers to find a hotel perhaps a little bit further out from the city to avoid streets like these.

Dear Beccat01,

Thank you for your recent stay with us and for taking time to review the hotel.

We appreciate your feedback and we are sorry you did not feel comfortable in our area. The Granville Entertainment District can definitely be a new experience for one who has not traveled to the west coast of North America. Being a fairly warm city year round, we share a similar problem with cities up and down the coast from Seattle, to Portland to San Francisco to Los Angeles and San Diego. It's a great place to live if you are homeless and prefer the street to shelters. While the Entertainment District is where you were staying, these issues is found throughout our city well beyond our immediate area. We do appreciate hearing your feedback so we can pass it on to the city.

We hope that the rest of your trip was more relaxed for you and that we may better serve you on a future trip to our area.

Kind Regards
