We were at 22 York Street 5 nights in August and really enjoyed our stay. We were on the top floor, so yes, quite a climb to the top -- but nothing we couldn't handle. Room was very clean and worked well for us. Breakfast was fine - not extraordinary, and it might have been nice to have a little more variety, but it was of good quality and delicious. It was fun visiting with some of the other guests around the breakfast table before we started our day. The location was perfect, just a couple blocks from Baker Street station, which can get you pretty much anywhere in the city. Some good food options in the neighborhood as well. I'd recommend it.

We stayed here for 3 nights before we went on a cruise and another 3 after the cruise. The first stay was great. A room with 2 twin beds on the ground floor with decent bathroom. Has a view of brick wall but wasn't expecting a view and it had ample light. Then the last three we were on the third floor and it was a totally different experience. First off....It is a hike up those stairs with the bags and they do not help you with them that is for sure. Sophia said she had just had surgery, but when we stayed on the first floor, I had most of our bags in the room and Ines was showing us our room. She pointed from the room out to the last bag and said, "You still have another bag out there." So she wasn't going to roll that bag in behind us to help, I doubt she would have helped going up stairs. However, when we left, a house keeper heard us clunking down the stairs and came out and helped us carry bags down. So she is the hard working one there, not the office/kitchen staff. They heard us and I saw one of them in the hall duck quick into the kitchen when we were at the bottom. Even if they hadn't heard us coming down to offer any help, they didn't bother to thank us for staying there as we left as most hotel staff would.
Second....The room we got up stairs has an awkward, uncomfortable bathroom. We walked in and saw the two twin beds, and a sink with small shelf above it and a quilt rack with towels on it. There were 2 closet doors and I thought there was no bathroom. But I opened one of the closet doors and saw a tub sideways in it. The other door was the toilet. The tub sits a bit higher so is awkward to climb in and out of. There is no where to set the towels but the floor for when you are out of the shower. There is a ring hanging by the tub that would be used for hanging a hand towel on that you could try and stuff the bath towel through. Then there is only that one ring and one hook on a door to hang wet towels. Had to drape on the quilt rack.
Third.....The other reviewers were correct that it is warm on the third floor and if someone uses the shower at the same time, you will have less pressure. It was about 60 to 65 degrees when we were there but we had the windows open and fan going because it was quite warm. So if you are staying in warm weather do not stay on upper floors. It is also noisy with the windows open.
BEFORE YOU STAY, if you are still wanting to.....be sure to request a room that suits you and ask for pictures of the room. At the time we stayed, the only picture of a bathroom on the website was the one in the first room we stayed in. I have stayed and searched websites of plenty of B&B's and the website will show each room with pics. They only show some rooms and the one bathroom. So that bathroom tub in the closet was a shock to us. What this hotel has going for it is location to Baker street tube. However, for the price, I would suggest checking out the Blandford or a different hotel for better comfort and service. If you don't have heavy bags, and are in good shape for stairs, you may not mind the climb but the last bit of stairs is a spiral so even more awkward with bags. I let them know the first of our 3 nights that we were not pleased with the room with the bathroom in the closet. The owner was out of town and expressed regrets that we were not pleased but that their rooms are kept to the highest standard. The second night we noticed several rooms with doors open, unoccupied. The morning of our last night, I went to pay for our stay so we could just leave the next morning. Kate checked me out and said we could stay in a different room the last night since it was unoccupied. She said she never saw me the day before to tell us we could have changed rooms yesterday. It was nice that they let us stay in a nicer room but....couldn't help but think if I hadn't found her to check out, we wouldn't have had the other room offered for our last night. She said she didn't see us the day before to let us know we could change to the other room. We had been emailing with them. We had our cell phone on while we were there that they could have phoned us. They could have emailed, or phoned to offer the other room or even just put a note on our door saying we could stay in the other room across from ours that is standing with the door open. It kind of shows the level of service. I disagree with the owner that their hotel is the highest standard. I have experienced the highest standard and this wasn't it.

Room Tip: make sure you have pics to know what your bathroom is like, don't do third floor

We had room 1, with the wooden canopy bed as shown on the website. We were led down into the basement and were told this was the largest room in the B&B. Entry of 2 m2, bedroom 16 m2 and bathroom 4 m2. The king-size bed is 190 cm and 160 cm wide. However, the view is of a dirty white wall and the legs of passing pedestrians. We only opened the windows for ventilation during breakfast only. Making a garden in the area would improve the view. There is also a sitting room without windows in the basement. On the ground floor is the spacious breakfast room and on the first floor there is a spacious, light, high ceiling sitting room with an annexe space with coffee/tea facility, water, a tin with cookies and a piano for the guests. There is good Wifi and plenty of reading material. The rooms have lots of items around for decoration, looks a lot like an antique store, but it gives the place character. At night it is fairly quiet with little traffic. However, around 6 a.m. you are awaken by the footsteps and creaking wooden floor of the personnel getting ready for breakfast service as the breakfast room is directly above. Although breakfast is served quite late (8 am?), they do cater for early departures. On the first night we were awakened at 4 a.m. for a guest who needed to get to the airport and then again at around 6 a.m. for the departure of another guest. The “special” continental breakfast is not special with the standard array of spreads for the toast and one cheese, croissants, muffins and Danish. The location is excellent, in walking distance (350 m) to the Baker Street Underground. There are plenty of restaurants in the neighbourhood, especially fast-food types. Ines was very helpful giving names of restaurants in the area.

We loved this place, it has a fantastic location in terms of using the tube or the busses. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were comfortable. Since we were there for 10 days we had go change rooms several times rather than changes places to stay. The moves were easy and all the rooms were great! We recommend this place highly!

My husband and I stayed at 22 York Street on our way through London (and on our return) for a trip to Spain. This hotel is located at an excellent location, comfortably appointed, and a very good value. Michael, and his staff (especially Ingrid) were exceptionally accommodating, helpful and welcoming. We were able to have a coffee on our early arrival, while waiting for our room, and we welcomed tea in the lovely parlor after a long day of touring. Breakfast was delicious, and included hot cross buns, crumpets, hot porridge, fruit, and cheese, served up at a charming long table set with china and silver. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: We stayed on both the first and second floors, and both rooms were quiet.
