London accomodations advice, please

Jump to last reply

We’ve book our flights and have a hotel reserved (Lime Tree Hotel - lovely place with great reviews) for our early July week in London. Another hotel has since indicated availability (the Caesar - know nothing about it but seems highly rated too). And now, I’ve found even more hotels that might work for us. So basically, I’m confused on lodging in London and would appreciate some advice!

For getting around London easily by public transportation and by foot, the Belgravia location seems desirable and seemingly closer than the Bayswater hotel location. Both areas seem well connected by public transport. Am I assessing this correctly? Or should we keep looking for something even more central, in the Covent Garden, Soho, Fitzrovia, Bloomsbury, Mayfair areas or should we keep the Lime Tree? We originally thought B&B, or hotel, but now we're thinking that access to laundry facilities (washer/dryer in an apt) might be a plus since we all are continuing on with trips after London. This is my only reason to consider an apartment (5 of us, a multi-generational group). Also, still concerned about A/C, and that the Lime Tree doesn’t have it. I’ve already asked that question before, received a variety of answers, so I guess the choice is up to preference, really. Comments appreciated.
