We stayed at Ritchie's for 2 nights. Location couldn't have been better. We literally walked everywhere. Great access to the tube and right across from Ritchie's place there is a great cafe " Holborn Grind" great for breakfast and super trendy at night with delicious drinks. The room/place wasn't as tidy as it looked in the pictures but since we were there just to sleep we didn't mind it so much.
The location of the room is good.
Richie is extremely welcoming, flexible and nice - we felt completely at home in his flat, and he really went out of his way to meet us in person, when we arrived. Nice beds, comfy room, not at all noisy compared to the fact that it is located right in the middle of London.
The location could not be better: Right next to a tube station with Central and Picadilly Lines and walking distance to Soho and Covent Garden - excactly what you need for a stay in London, and I would love to come back and stay the same place!
Richie est sympa et de bon conseil sur le quartier. Chambre petite et pas très propre. Pas d'accès possible à la cuisine. Bruits de la circulation automobile toute la nuit. Mais effectivement, l'appart est très bien situé pour visiter Londres.
opis bardzo precyzyjny, gospodarz błyskawicznie odpowiada, lokal godny polecenia
Had a great time in Richies place, the location is incredible, easy access to the tube and nearby covent garden/piccadilly circus. Highly recommended!
Richie's apartment was awesome! Great location and the room and bathroom were clean. I and my friend had a great time in London! Thanks a lot! :)
Look no further than Richie's place for a perfect introduction to London! I've been to London once but never quite had the same feeling as staying here.
The location is legendary. You'll only realise that when you are brought to your room and Richie points to the map on the wall where you will see his almost-proud (as he's such a jolly good fella!) compass drawing of the "10-min walk" circle and radius from where he lives - which probably encompasses 50% of wherever you want to go in London. He's not lying when he says that he's had people stay for a week and not take a single train as everywhere of interest is walkable. And that's where you wanna stay as the London Tube and Bus services have strikes/shutdowns as often as you experience rain and drizzle in the winter season! Of course, the Tube/Train station is like "1 MINUTE" away ... and there are so many popular F&B establishments, drinking spots, patisseries, breakfast/coffee places .. with a Salisbury grocery store a minute away as well. I was also personally delighted to find Steiner house just 2-3 mins away!
Just the location to price ratio alone pays you back many times over ... which is impossible to find in this part of Central London (just try searching if you don't believe!). However, I think what we'll definitely come back for is the feeling of being part of a cozy little apartment, where a true blue Brit and gentleman that is Richie brings to you. Hands up if you prefer friendly, casual and humourous conversations/exchanges VERSUS deliberate and rehearsed "holiday" service. Although there is a bit of a theme going for the room, he doesn't purposely "decorate" or "prepare" it in such a way that you feel you are a tourist staying in a "holiday room" - in short, it feels just like home.
Even though Richie was busy on our last night in London (and we had to leave in the wee hours of the following morning), he made the time out to have a good chat with us in the room and broke open a well-aged Bordeaux wine even though he's not really one of those drinkers (it's really to offer us a great gift).
I'm pretty darn sure you can't find such hospitality, privacy (as he doesn't have multiple rooms like other BnBs), coziness and unparalleled convenience all in one - much less at this price point!
Thank you Richie, we'll be back! :)
Bloody hell what an excellent review! Nice one Clarence, it was a pleasure.
Perfect location at Richie's appartement! Room realy clean! And there are a lot of places to take the breakfast, realy Nice!
We were warmly welcomed by Richie, the room was as described and we received plentiful advice on what to do with our time in Theatreland. My only regret is that we were out of the house when Richie was filming one of his famous magic videos, and could not star in said video. Thanks very much for a great stay.
