We arrived a little early on a rainy day to be greeted by friendly reception staff. We really appreciated that we could check in straight away. All the staff we came across during our stay made an effort to say hello so we felt very welcome as a result. While Hotel 53 isn't in the centre of York, we didn't... More

Just returned from a family weekend break. Hotel ideally situated with a short walk to all major attractions. Safe secure car park across the road ten pounds for 24 hours so well worth booking in advance. Check in fast, efficient and very helpful. (apologies did not get your name).

We had booked a family room for 2 adults and 1 child. The room was not big enough for a sofa bed so when it was made up it was not possible to get into the (small)double bed without clambering over the sofa bed. At the other side of the double bed was a radiator which made it difficult to... More

We booked this place on the day s a spur of the moment trip to York. The hotel is really handy for the city centre & is modern & clean.

I have no complaints at all about this hotel! It was lovely and I would recommend it to anyone. Modern, clean rooms, yummy breakfast and friendly staff. Not far from the city centre either! :) Only thing I would say is that some people staying there were loud but that isn't down to the hotel! Would definitely go back!
