We arrived around 2pm and were able to check right into our room. We were facing the courtyard on the 3rd floor. We were kindly informed when and where breakfast was, the wifi password, and to come to the front desk with any questions. Our room was clean and turned up every day, it was small but it did the trick. Breakfast was delicious, I highly recommend the sausage and breakfast tea. The front desk helped us with all of our questions and saved us both time and money on how to get to particular areas. The British Museum is also right down the block, when you can get there in under 5 minutes it is a must. I would definitely return to the Ridgemount if/when I visit London again.

Room Tip: Try and get a room facing away from the street.

The Ridgemount is definitely a traveller's hotel! The rooms are small yet clean and well-equipped, the beds are small yet comfortable. It is a perfect cost-effective place to stay when visiting London! The breakfast is perfect to launch your day!

Room Tip: The rooms in the back will be a lot quieter than the front! There are lots of busses running down G...

I stayed at Ridgemount Hotel with my best friend for 4 nights. We had a room on the top floor (85 steps down to the breakfast room). It was clean, big enough for the two of us and beds and pillows where fine. The bathroom was good but lacked toileteries. There was a hair dryer in the room but we missed coffe and tea making facilities in our room. You could get it all downstairs in the lounge room for free. There is also a Venedig machine for your softdrinks.
Breakfast was good and the staff was wonderful. We walked from here to every place in town and the bus and tube where very close. I would love to stay here again. Thank you very much!

I have stayed at the Ridgemount Hotel numerous times since my first visit in 1982. Yes, I really am that old and still able to move. The Ridgemount is close to theatres, shopping, great historical attractions and many good places to eat and have a drink (think of the great British pubs). Royden will often find you at breakfast and help plan your adventure for the day.

Over the years, I have referred 37 people to the Ridgemount as a wonderful, clean, inexpensive hotel. Not one of those people has complained about the Ridgemount.

Royden and Gwen have always been great hosts. Aled and Onwin were little kids on our first visits. They are now helping run the place and there are new little kids playing in the yard.

Try it. You will like it. My whole family liked it.

Room Tip: Try to get an ensuite room. They are worth the few extra dollars.

Very friendly and helpful service. Environmental pleasant and quiet, good location, convenient to move around in many places. Rooms tasteful Londoners, a great atmosphere. Breakfast plentiful and special diet were taken into account as well. A lot of the staff there and the service is fast. A clean and comfortable hotel.

I honestly have nothing bad to say about this hotel everything about my experience here was amazing. I recently stayed for 4 nights and the staff was more than helpful and the room was clean, as well as the bathrooms. The location is excellent, it is easy walking distance to a lot of the tourist attractions or just a 5 minute walk to the Goodge Street underground station. I dont think you will find a better place for the price and the location. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that was traveling to London and when I make it back I will be staying here again.

I stayed at the Ridgemount for three nights and enjoyed it a lot!
The owners and staff are extraordinarily kind and helpful. I had a single room at the top floor, facing the garden – it was small and impeccably clean, and so was the ensuite bathroom.
As everybody else mentioned, the location of the hotel is great. It is situated in the University district and the sourroundings are very pleasant. You´ll find a lot of nice restaurants and pubs and you are within walking distance to many places of interest.
I also recommend the shortcut through Senate House across the street to get to Russell Square – a lovely green island to relax and watch people!
