“Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the ridgemount for 5 nights. The location is great, a 5 minute walk to Goodge street station and Euston station. The bus stop is just across the road also. The owner was very helpful, providing us with directions each mornings where we wanted to go.
The room itself was small but to be expected in london. It was very clean which to me is very important. The lounge downstairs offers free hot drinks and a couch to sit on and relax.
My only cons were the noise from the street (ask for a room not facing the street) and the bed needed a couple more pillows, though I'm sure the owner would have provided more if we had asked.
Would stay here again due to the fantastic location.

I've already stayed at the Ridgemount on two occasions, for a week in 2011 and for around 10 days last year. I wanted to book for next month again but, sadly, there was no availability on such short notice. What can I say? The staff was always very helpful, the rooms were clean and cosy, comfortable to spend time watching TV or relaxing after the activities of the day. The shared bathroom was always clean as well. I'm a vegetarian and, even though they offered english breakfast, I could always choose to have cereal with soy milk and toasts with strawberry jam instead. There were also a couple of times that I was offered cheese and tomato too. The location is superb, it's near the Northern Line, The Central Line and The Piccadilly Line, being Goodge Street the nearest station (Northern Line), not to mention that you can reach lots of places just by walking.

Room Tip: The rooms facing Gower Street can be a bit noisy, especially on the ground floor.

The room was a bit small but clean and quiet. The staff were all very pleasant and eager to help me get the most out of my short stay in London. The location gives you good access to trains and the tube. Breakfast was excellent and the coffee is free all day long. I would stay here again anytime. The Ridgemount may give you the best bang for your buck in central London.

I spent three very comfortable nights in this hotel. My en-suite room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Everyone I encountered was friendly and very helpful. The location of the hotel is very good. I would certainly recommend it and I will happily return there. I enjoyed my breakfasts too!! All in all it was good value for money.

Was recommended to go here by a family friend. It was such a lovely treat. The room was a fair size with 2 beds, an ensuite bathroom, wardrobe, fan and tv et cetera. The maid was always asking if we needed anything. The breakfast was so good and I looked forward to it every morning. The staff there are so pleasant and always ask what your plans are for the day and offer assist for tube/bus times and schedules. It is like a small family. Now when I go to London I know where I am staying and I do not have to think twice about it. It is so close to all the major attractions, good restaurants and train station!!! Totally awesome and unforgetable!

My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights in the basement rear twin room and, whilst the beds were a little small, they were comfortable and the room was very quiet and quite roomy. The bathroom was next door to our room but for our sole use and no one came anywhere close to our part of the hotel so felt as though we had a lot more space. There is a lovely lounge that can be used by all with 2 computers for free use of the Internet and hot drinks. We felt extremely safe walking the area, even late at night, the buildings are beautiful and the streets are so clean, you could easily believe you were in a quiet village! There are 2 subways close by, plus a train station and the bus stop is less than 2 minutes from the door of the hotel. The owners are both kind and considerate and so helpful with advice on where to go and how to get there and updates on the weather and any work on public transportation routes. The ladies that do the breakfast always have a cheery smile to greet you and provide an excellent choice of drinks and food, even offering vegetarian options. The only downside of our stay was that it was too short and we would've loved to have stayed longer! Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: I'd heard that the road noise at the front can sometimes be heard, we had the the basement twin...
