Nothing is good value in London, but given that, 22 York Street provides a quiet haven away from the hustle and bustle outside. It is situated in a quiet street between Baker Street and Gloucester Place, 2 very busy and noisy streets and is not too bad, police sirens notwithstanding! The building is old and as such the rooms are a bit outdated, but are clean and quite comfortable, although the furniture is somewhat dated, minimal and old and the carpets a little threadbare in places! The bathrooms are clean and functional, with both hand and bath towels, always clean and fresh. The building can be very warm in the summer as there is no air-conditioning and the rooms can be very stuffy. I have stayed here several times a year for many years and have always had a friendly welcome from a succession of ladies managing the place for Michael Callis the owner, who spends much of his time in Switzerland, where he also owns a small hotel. The current lady manager is very helpful, keeps the place in great shape and there is always a really nice breakfast on offer - everything but not cooked! 22 York Street is handy for Baker Street tube station, close to buses for the city in Baker Street and from the city in Gloucester Place, just a few steps away. There are a number of small cafes and restaurants closeby, as well as a Tesco just along the road. A good place to stay for just one night or several nights but do not expect any of the comfort items associated with bigger hotels or even B&B's outside London! It is expensive for what it is, but then, where in London is not!
try and get a room at the back of the building, as it can be a bit quieter
