22 York Street is a great place to visit! I had the fortunate experience while I was visiting my daughter in London while she was studying abroad. I had searched for a place to stay that would be near a Tube station, and that would be easily accessible to the sites in central London and also my daughter's University. ( The Queen Mary University of London). 22 York Street met the bill! i t is about one block from the the Baker Street tube station, very close to Madam Trousseau's wax museum. The area borders on the swank area of London called Marylebone. So, there are plenty of restaurants and stores within walking distance of the B&B., as well as other tourist sights such as the cute Sherlock Holmes Museum, The Beatles store and Abby Road, the Wallace Collection...(A great little Art Gallery) etc.
The staff at 22 York street were terrific! Very friendly and helpful. The whole place is filled with antiques including my first room that had a small piano in it! (I was staying for over a week and booked late. They could accommodate me if I could switch rooms, mid week). They were even very helpful with that. They helped me move my luggage and a few other items out of the first room into the second. I went to Paris a few days through the" chunnel," and they stored my luggage for a few days until I returned at no cost. They placed it in my room when I returned.
Breakfast was the best! It was continental, but there was plenty to choose from. Croissants, crumpets, muffins, juice, coffee and tea, fruit, cheese, yogurt, cereal ,etc. The table was always nicely decorated with nice china, and flowers. The conversation around the table was my favorite! I met people from all over the world and we compared notes each morning on how our previous day went.! There is a lounge with a computer in the basement, and another on the 2nd floor that has 24/7 coffee, tea, and cookies available. Both were very comfortable, with more antiques and books.The second floor lounge has a large screen TV and games as well. All and all, I would give this B & B a high rating especially for the affordable price.
