DoubleTree by Hilton London Ealing
Ranked #249 of 1,076 Hotels in London
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 28, 2008

My wife and I recently stayed here for four nights. We have stayed here on two previous occasions. The hotel is easy to find by car and has a car park with reasonable 24-hour rates for patrons. It is also only five minutes walk from Ealing Common tube station.
The hotel is quite functional and would not be described as 'plush'. The rooms and bathrooms are small but adequate and have tea/coffee facilities, LCD TV, aircon and (expensive) WiFi. The reception staff were reasonably friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is the usual buffet-style and was quite good. One morning we got our times wrong and arrived down 20 minutes after breakfast end time but the waitress kindly made a table up for us and took our order. I suspect the breakfast consisted of leftovers from the buffet as it was just warm but we were glad to get anything.
One thing did bug us. The room staff start cleaning the rooms at about 8.00 in the morning and knock on all doors before walking in. This is an annoyance if you aren't in a hurry to get up. However, after the first time it happened, we just started to use the 'do not disturb' hangers and that worked OK.
As a basic functional tourist class hotel, this hotel is quite adequate with no major problems.

Good hotel but in need of new decor in corridors. Rooms comfy and clean but rates fluctuate from day to day. Very expensive for what you get but breakfasts very good.

Rooms very small, staff at check in / reception not extremely friendly. Breakfast ok, bar and bar tender ok. Close to tube Ealing Common, 30 min to downtown London, GBP 4,-- each way. Approx. 30 min to London Heathrow with no traffic ... could easily be more. Wouldn't stay there for longer ...

This is an uninspiring though generally functional hotel in an area of west London. Convenient to the Ealing Common Tube station (probably less than 200 yards) and the Ealing Broadway Tube station (about one mile) and which is a stop on the Heathrow Connect train service. The hotel has no numeric address but is on the corner of Uxbridge Road and Hanger Lane (on a frontage road). The building itself is a 1970’s style design of utilitarian boxiness. The staff on the front desk were generally helpful, although a number were not particularly knowledgeable about the area (like many hotels in London many of the staff appear to be Central or Eastern European immigrants). There is a fairly large parking lot, since I didn’t have a car I don’t know if there is an additional charge for the use of it.

The room, by American standards, was relatively cramped (one of the smallest rooms I have used in numerous recent stays in continental Europe) with two twin beds, a modest closet and a small easy chair. In addition there was a work desk, unfortunately as I use an Apple laptop with its distinctive power adaptor all the electrical outlets were too close to the top of the desk to be useable, and there were no other useable outlets. It turned out not to be too major a limitation as the Ethernet (no WiFi in the room) access was one of the more expensive I have recently encountered; six pounds for an hour and twelve pounds for 24 hours, since I was in my room, (other than sleeping) for less than two hours it wasn’t worth the expense. Regardless, this cost is pretty extortionate. The furnishings were standard, non-descript hotel style, with a tendency towards brown plastic looking laminated wood. The bathroom was average with adequate floor space and surface space for toiletries. There was a combined tub and shower, which worked well; the only minor criticism was that the tub floor was pretty slippery (they did warn of this).

The restaurant was adequate but expensive, an average quality dinner for two, comprising a soup, two entrees and two drinks each was GBP66 and the breakfast, which appeared to offer only a buffet with one price, was GBP12. The breakfast was comprehensive with fruits, cereals and full English elements such as fried eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, etc.; comprehensive but not very good, save your money. The restaurant also suffered from the foreign staff syndrome, it was difficult to communicate with certain of the staff.

I booked at the last minute directly with the Ramada Web site with as cost of GBP89 for Sunday night and GBP116 for Monday for two people, excluding breakfast. While the hotel was functional and clean I thought this was expensive, although I recognize hotels in London (and England in general) are unconscionably expensive.

I stayed here for 3 nights on business at the beginning of June and also had a couple of more stays booked. However, after my experience of the first stay I cancelled and looked elsewhere (I ended up staying at Holiday Inn, Hanger Lane). The room was very dated, apart from the flat screen TV, although that kept going off!. the room was very cramped. It would be ok for 1 night only. The worse though was the noise. I was at the back of the hotel, which I can only guess was overlooking the flat roof of the kitchen. The air ventilation system from the kitchen was incredibly noisy even with the window shut. Also there was very little sound insulation between the rooms and into the corridor. Every time someone open and closed their door you heard it. And seeing there were several coach parties in, they were going all the time. I'm not normally bothered by noise in hotels, but this was the worse I'd experienced. Breakfast was poor with little choice if you wanted something other than cooked. Glad I cancelled my future bookings. Holiday Inn was much better!

my husband stayed there for a month on starting a new job while i organised our relocation from europe. no complaints about the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms, but the way the credit manager treated us left a lot to be desired. unsigned letters in the room informing us our credit was bad when in fact it was not made for a lot of extra stress at a very stressful time!

Stayed at the Ramada Ealing as we were attending a seminar at the hotel. Booked a package on the hotel's website for 2 nights bed & breakfast with dinner on the first night. It may be a good idea to book these deals early as the price did increase nearer the arrival date. We paid a total of £185 for this package. It would be a good base if you wish to park and travel up to central London on the tube and car parking was charged at a reasonable £4.50 per day. The staff were friendly and the food was ok the real let down was the room. It was very small with an awful colour scheme of black & peach which did little to make the room appear larger. The bathroom was also very small. It was quiet hard to step out of the bath and avoid the toilet.
Best to get a rate which includes breakfast as I think it was quite expensive if you paid later.
