What a great experience! Rich's place is amazing. Immaculately clean, tastefully furnished and more than we could've expected. Our room was equipped with towels, drinking water, tea/coffee, closet space, hairdryer and even socks+ear plugs should we need them!! The bathroom was large and clean and reflected the same meticulousness.
Rich was very helpful, accommodating and friendly. His place is central and conveniently located near a bus stop and the Victoria Park (particularly the entrance to Field Day which was ideal for us).
Thank you Rich! Hopefully we'll be back again soon!

Rich was an AMAZING host and that's with me being a difficult guest. Through locking myself out of the flat, adding a guest to my room for longer than expected and graciously accommodating for a room change and other requests Rich was an absolute DELIGHT. The room was large, stylishly decorated, clean, and wonderfully located. Everything was just great!
Rich was very nice host ... everything was clean and ready for our stay. Nice and calm place close to bus stop with direct connection to the centre of the city ... Close his flat is also big and pretty park with very good coffee shop Pavilion ... simply we were really satisfied and we can Rich and his accomodation recommend to all of you ... Next time in London I would like to stay there again ... Thanks Rich!

Rich var mycket trevlig och såg till att vi trivdes bra under hela vår vistelse. Rummet var ljust och stämmer väl överens med bilderna. Området var trevligt med mysiga caféer och nära till Victoria Park. En bit in till centrala London men buss 8 till Tottenham court road går precis utanför huset.
Th review is very easy:
Room: perfectly clean and cosy
Location: perfect/bus stop right in front and metro is 10 minutes walk
Ritch is a very nice and polite host, always availble if needed
I definately recommend this place!!!!
Cant think of a single bad thing about Rich and his room in east London! The room is great, clean, bright; the bed is really comfortable, all the facilities are great. The location is excellent, well connected in terms of transport and 3 min walk from the beautiful Victoria Park. Rich is a sweet host, very welcoming, attentive, caring, and always ready to help with anything - I'd definitely recommend this place!
