Great location and darling rooms!

This place is in the historic district in an excellent - walking distance to the museums and to Carytown. We stayed in the Serenity Suite, which is by itself on the other side of the shared parlor from the other rooms. The bed was exceedingly comfy with great pillows. Coffee and other drinks and snacks are available all the time - a really nice touch. The breakfast was fruit, hardboiled eggs and breads/pastries. We were in Richmond for a special event , so didn't get to see much of the city. We look forward to returning again to The One Bed and Breakfast!


Super Cool and Comfy!

Such a wonderful and cozy spot, near Cary Street shops and restaurants. Great walkable and historic neighborhood! This wonderful home is neat, clean and very thoughtfully detailed and designed. Owners seemed nice, saw them briefly but it was a friendly quick meeting. They don't bother you but you feel they're there if you need them. Serenity Suite was the cutest, cozy and romantic, has everything you need (accept the community iron, which is in the parlor closet). Serenity Suite has the ensuite bath, so it was great. There's a skeleton key to enter your room (in the room upon your arrival to use during your stay), and a unique code you punch to enter the main house from the street. A designated off street parking space for most suites (they give you a parking pass), but also street parking, which didn't look too bad. The exterior of the house is very nicely maintained and landscaped. Parlor is stocked with drinks (alcoholic and non), popcorn, microwave, fridge, toaster, cookies, chips and fruit. As well as, any dishes and utensils you may need and all available 24/7. The continental breakfast is yummy, with pastries, bagels, english muffins, boiled eggs, ham, fruit, juice, cereal and everything needed in the way of accompaniments. They serve it in covered dishes in the adjoining parlor and is served from around 8-10:30am each morning. Definitely try and get a reservation to visit this place, it's wonderful and is surely one of the places that give Richmond a great name!


The One is First Rate

Our stay was delightful...well located to RMFA, restaurants, easy drive downtown. Fresh Continental breakfast provided,,,more choices than expected. The one surprise is that the bathrooms are outside the rooms...not more than 2 steps away, though.

Best B and B I've Ever Been To

5 on March 31, 2017

We have been to many bed and breakfast places over the years and this is hands down the best we have ever been to. Clean and fully stocked with everything you would need and more. Located on a beautiful street one short block from Carytown.


Really very pleasant

Was not sure what to expect from a B&B in downtown Richmond, but this was really nice. The continental breakfast was exceptional, the complimentary snax and drinks were really nice, and the location was great. We'll be back.


Weekend with "The S. C. Girls"

4.6 on January 06, 2017

Sat.Two of my friends and I met in Richmond for a Happy New Year/Birthday Party. The Fan District is an ideal location. The owners of The One Bed and Breakfast have their business down to a science, from the private entrance with passcode, to the central parlor with soft music, and the presentation of their Continental Breakfast in a variety of covered antiques dishes. All was so cozy and well planned for a delightful stay.

Convenient and comfortable B&B


Wonderful...looking forward to my next stay.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The One Bed and Breakfast. Polly and Sean were very attentive to my questions and needs. The Slumber Suite is so welcoming and comfortable, lovely. And its private bath has a nice deep tub. Soft towels, crisp sheets on the bed. I slept so well. A downtown establishment, it was nevertheless quiet. A very peaceful and welcoming B&B. And it's in such a great location: it's close to everything. Looking forward to our next visit.


Perfect Getaway

Great location. We were in Richmond to see the Faberge exhibit at the VMFA. The One was in walking distance. There were many restaurants nearby also. Great place to stay.
