Good hotel for centre of Leicester but saturday evening full of party goersGenuine Expedia guest review
"Chosen for proximity to NYE Party"
The hotel was nice, the lobby and bar/restraunt were modern and upscale. The room was a bit small but the price was reasonable. The bathroom had an odd smell that was annoying but on a one night stay it wasn't a deal breaker. Parking is very close, and they validate so that you only pay 8 pounds a night instead of 24. All-in-all a good place to stay […] for us because it was a 2 min walk from the NYE party we attended that was awesome. And I slept like a champ, but anyone would after a bottle of Jack :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel and in the Hub of the City!"
I grew up in Leicester, but have lived in the USA for 14 yrs where everything is much larger. I chose this Hotel for a 3 night stay while visiting family, after taking my Fiancee to London and Paris during the previous 8 days. Compared to London and Paris 4 star rated Hotels, this was more modern, larger, cleaner and comfortable and we were both so […] thoroughly relieved to finally have space, comfort and great service. Regarding parking a car, I would ask to use one of the few spaces that the Hotel has beneath in their basement, if any are available. The city car park, close by, was very expensive at 18.50 pounds per night! I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone looking to stay over in Leicester! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern hotel, great location"
This is a very modern hotel, very comfortable room, free internet. Only about four blocks from the train station, and about six blocks from the bus station. Right near the center of the main shopping area, which is great! Would definitely recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay place, great location"
Everything is in very good condition--hotel moved to this new location fairly recently, I was told. However, the amenities were a little lacking. No carpeting, no storage cabinet or chest, no easy place to put your luggage, no shelf in the shower stall to store items. If you can easily do without these, the place was just fine. The location is great: […] close to the train station and the bus station, and close to the central shopping area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A bug catcher under the bed!!!!!"
I dropped some coins out of my wallet in my room under the bed. It was on wheels so pulled it out to get my money. Yuck!!!!! Hadn't been hovered in a longtime with dust dirt and grime. To top it off a bug catcher!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"one night stay"
room clean. staff friendly and helpful. Short of chefs at lunchtime so ate out. room simple but clean and comfortable. Wet room shower splashed everywhere, not a good design. quite acceptable as a city centre hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
fantastic stay at ramada will defo be back brilliant service from shazadGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Is what it is, good city location. Food is average, what u'd expect really. Room cold...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
This is the first time I had stayed in this hotel, where I was booked for 3 nights. The location of the hotel in the city center was convenient for many restaurants, I ate in the hotel just once and found the food to be slighter better than the normal hotel chain food with quick pleasant service. My room was at the back of the building and was quite. […] There was everything in the room that was necessary. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad quality even for a budget hotel"
I was very disappointed with the Ramada Encore. I stayed for 4 nights for work in January. It was very cold outside and unfortunately in my room as well. The heating was not powerful enough to heat the room and turned off when you were not in so every day when I came back it was freezing and not warm until 2am. I had to use the hair dryer to warm my […] feet up! In addition, the dry air blown into the room was very unpleasant and so I woke up several times throughout the night(s). I asked for an extra radiator and blankets which was ignored by the hotel staff. The floor is laminate (no carpets) which added to the cold feeling and the corridor (1st floor) stank of cigarettes. In addition, the entry area to my room didn't have a light fitting and so was always dark (impossible to see the heating control without opening the door. I would certainly not stay here again. I couldn't believe how inaccurate some of the other reviews were. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staff don't care"
Room was nice, although we were put in a disabled access room. Reception staff didn't ever answer the phone when we rang from the room phone, so instead I had to keep ringing from my mobile to the main number...even so, still very rare for an answer. Overall, terrible service from staff. Shocking considering I stay at ramada hotels on verty frequently […] through business. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good hotel, you will be pleased. Spacious rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for!"
Very basic room, but for the cost was ok for a single night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean room but very cold"
Our room on the 7th floor was freezing when we arrived and turning up the thermostat made no difference. When I called reception the Young lady said she would turn the heating on (why did she need to do that when there were controls in the room?). We stood around in our coats and 20 mins later there was no improvement so I rang Reception again and was […] told the same thing, without even an apology offered. An hour later we took our coats off. Hardly a welcoming attitude from the hotel staff & I would not recommend this hotel to a friend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would stay here again"
Perfect location for city centre, can't fault the hotel apart from there being no parking which cost me £20 to park overnight across the road. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were spotless. Surprisingly the bed was very comfortable. I would use again ;-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for a budget hotel"
Room was a little cold but the staff sorted that pretty quickly and efficiently. Staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms great for a budget hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My breakfast was taken away from me!"
I booked this hotel online. I was told by the hotel that they would honour a 'free breakfast deal' that they had as part of a larger group booking. Well...they didn't. Breakfast was £10 extra. After a 10 minute argument with the manager, i had enough and told him to eat his own breakfast. Extrmely rude. Plus I was put in a 'disabled acess' room. I'm […] not disabled, but sadly it was more inconvenient than I expected. I thought it would be spacious and roomy, but they had awkwardly placed emergency cords eg just above the loo roll. So you can imagine what happened next ....I pulled it by mistake when it tangled in the loo roll! ...embarrassing. Awkwardly placed. Just a word of warning for disabled users.

"Know your busines"
Reasonable room and reasonable rate, it would be useful to ensure that the hotel are totally clear that payment is made through hotel.com as i was delayed and frustrated when checking out and they didnt get it. I paid again as they insisted i hadnt paid, i had to chase up the next day to get them to arrange a refund.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not recommend"
Long waits at reception when checking in and out. Room seemed small compared to premiere inn and holiday inn. Overpriced for what it is...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice clean hotel and I keep going there."

"Modern Hotel close to the centre of Town"
It was a little tricky to navigate the one way system to park at the Car Park opposite the Hotel but once we had it was a fantastic base to explore the City. The room was spacious comfortable and very clean. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Comfortable stay with good access to most places.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to City Centre-Good value"
If you have a meeting or business in the city, then it is very convenient place. The only downside is that there is no complementary car park albeit that hotel-discounted NCP car parking is available at a rate of £8.00 for overnight stay, may not be 24 hours. Towels were clean, room was clean, and upper floors reasonably quiet and peaceful for a good […] night sleep. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good value for money"
Good value for money. Nice sized room with good facilities. Staff generally friendly but could have been more helpful. Parking is too fat away from hotel and no porters for luggage. Good level of cleanliness.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel, central location"
Great stay at the Ramada Encore Leicester. Hotel is in the centre of the city and location is great. Hotel staff were friendly and very helpful.Went to a great Chinese restaurant close to the hotel . Great for a weekend break.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely clean hotel. Little bit hard to find if using Sat Nav as it is close to centre and bus lane routes only, however once got there, everything was great. Very clean and comfortable. If using the local NCP car park, the charge is £20 for 24 hours, however you can get your ticket validated at the hotel and get discounted rate of £8.00.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really posh hotel close to city"
wanted a room cheap in city centre for night out. This was beautiful really cheap and amazing locationGenuine Expedia guest review
The Ramada Encore offered a comfortable room, albeit that all rooms have a shower rather than a bath, with efficient temperature control switch and excellent free wifi throughout the hotel. Book breakfast the night before to receive a reduced rate of £10 compared to the standard price of £11.95. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of […] the railway station and both bus stations as well as being close to the major shopping areas. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location Hotel."
Ramada Encore Leicester is a very nice hotel with excellent staff too welcome you as you enter; it was right in the city center of Leicester with all the shops and local bars and Restaurants within walking distances and near the Leicester market, about 10 – 15 minutes walking from train station. we booked a double bedroom on the fourth floor that was […] quieter at the back of the hotel the room was very clean and had a nice size modem style with a Comfortable bed to sleep in and with clean sheets, the room also had air condition a desk, wall mirrors, chair, a medium size flat screen TV (with preview channels), and free Wi-Fi, the bathroom was also modern with a walk in shower that was nice to see in a hotel. (As many don’t have one) I have read many bad reviews of this hotel but found none of them is true in our opinion I think many people are just too picky in life and always compare five stars with three stars hotels, Me and my wife stayed at this hotel on the 28th of July 2014. To celebrate our 10th anniversary. When we travel back to Leicester again we will stay at this hotel. Thank you. Have a nice day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great Location,great hotel,just great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great stay, overall will stay there again"
Started off a little poor, not much customer service from the gentleman behind the counter but when he handed me over to the polite young woman, she was very helpful. Room was great, comfortable and spacious for the budget. Very useful. Convenient due to travelling around the city centre. Breakfast in the morning was brilliant, set me for the day, as […] did the great night's sleep I got. With the window open, the streets were loud but once the window closed, not a peep.

Nice hotel to stay, staff are friendly and very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Poor service - nice rooms"
booked for 2 days, was quite excited for our stay and our room was lovely with comfortable beds. I did however feel let down by the service. staff were generally indifferent to us and did not acknowledge me waiting at the desk for a long time. was given only one key. the key didn't work on the 2nd day and reception lady didn't even apologise. asked […] for a towel that took over half hour. interlocking door was left unlocked and if not checked by chance, it would have stayed open and unlocked! kids being rowdy in the corridor and kept knocking on our door and running away. housekeeping refused to come back to clean our room in 15 mins as we were getting ready to leave... unsure why they left our room to last as it was second on corridor and they had done the others ages ago! hotel offer discounted car parking at the NCP across the road but must pay each time you exit, can get expensive. street parking is close but not many and 2 hour limit. room has hairdryer, towels, shower/hair gel and soap no hand cream. bars/restaurants close by and hotel bar quite lively - stayed Fri and Sat. sorry for negative feedback, I usually try to be positive but I have experienced so much better in cheaper and smaller hotels. the rooms are lovely though with windows that open which can be rare these days :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location :)"
Room was clean & nicely decorated. Great location for town centre shopping and bars. Staff were nice, if only there had been more of them as they were a bit thin on the ground.would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good stay but very noisy but that was due to wedding guestsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but a little unclean"
The location was very central and the staff are friendly. I stayed here back in September 2013 and then again in January 2014. The hotel back in September had only been open a month or so. It was naturally in perfect condition. However, with the January visit and now this recent one in June 2014, things were looking shabby. The room had fluff and hair […] on the floor and in the corners. The lamp on the bed was broken. The toilet smelt a little damp. In addition, the breakfast area had unclean carpets (food on them). A shame since this is a great place but the management need to ensure that the whole hotel is maintained. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Central location, great value if not driving"
Everything is as expected. Great staff, clean and comfortable room although no view in our room, overlooking a wall. Location is great. If driving, be aware pay parking is available at discounted price in nearby public multi-level car park if ticket is validated at reception. Wifi signal is strong on the 2nd floor. Check-in and check-out was hassle-free. […] Beds are comfortable. Pillows are soft and towels are clean. Room temperature can be adjusted to your liking. Worth your money but do factor in the pay parking which currently costs £8 per 24 hours. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient if you are visiting the Curve"
Ask for a quiet room! The higher floor the better.I had room 514 and it was ideal. There were big roadworks on the Main Street outside and at 8am Sunday morning they were drilling like crazy so I'm glad I had the quiet room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Business hotel - not for families"
Great location. Hotel is very basic and good for business travellers however I wouldn't want to stay with the family.Genuine Expedia guest review
