We just had one night away in York staying at Hotel 53 but was very impressed with the room and hotel generally. Nice room which was really contemporary and new. Only slight downside was a bit of air con noise from outside. Excellent breakfast and the position of the hotel is absolutely ideal as York centre is 5 mins walk.... More

This modern style hotel was quite nice. The rooms were very adequate and a good size. The lobby and bar were very comfortable and the restaurant was excellent, especially the desserts. The service was also good and the staff were accommodating. The location was fantastic, just blocks away from the Rambles, the Minster and other important York sites. If I... More

This is by far the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed in. Our room was directly opposite the lift & every member of the international door slamming convention seemed seemed to think it was their room. Then the domestic kicked off 3 doors down, we could hear every word & threat. Three calls to the night manger who seemed to think... More

Booked this hotel through Booking.com after seeing some good reviews and checking out the location. Arrived and parked in the car park just opposite. Was £15 for the 2 days so not bad at all for York! Checked in and walked to our room but had a problem with the door so we told a staff member and was moved... More

Great location, very convenient from train station, and just a short (not even 5 minutes) walk from the shambles. Very modern, facilities awesome. Bed was super comfy too. Staff were very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Not a bad thing to say about the place.

We choose this hotel because of its location , ie close proximity to The Barbican Theatre . Booking was straightforward via Booking,com & although it was rather more expensive than I was intending to pay we decided to go for it with the expectation that it would be a 'bit special ' as other hotels near by were fully booked...
