I suppose if I was a more experienced traveler, I would have taken one look at Room 11 and said I wanted another room. Apparently, "Garden Level" in the UK means underground. There was one glass door, which opened as a window at the top. Everything about the Apsley House was excellent, except that for visitors staying three nights, I would have thought we would have a room above ground. Be aware, there are, I think, three other rooms underground. In the US, there must be two means of egress, here there was one. Now, one would doubt there would be something happening to trap you down there, but, you are trapped. Also, they tell me Room 11 is the only one without a hand-held shower, which they did tell me in advance. So I think the prior reviewer is correct, they probably didn't rent out 11 rooms in the past. The linens were perfect and high-end, the room was not damp, the breakfast was excellent, although only 1-1/2 hours 8-9:30 to get to it, not great for jet-lagged. Service was perfect in every way. Walk to town not a problem, it depends on how much you are comfortable walking. I will say I think they know their shortcomings, and try to minimalize them, eg, yes, the walk is short to the END of town. It is in a crowded setting, although it was very quiet...probably due to being underground! ;-)
