Ok room. Good location. However shower didn't heat up and apparently we should have waited until their engineer fixed it. Not even an apology. Would try somewhere else next time. When you only have 24hours to enjoy a city you don't want to have to wait in your pants for a plumber

Stayed for one night. Staff friendly and very helpful. Great location for Viking centre, museums and shops. Hotel modern and very clean. Value for money. A hotel like this would cost an arm and a leg in London. If there is a downside you have to pay to park in a public car park across the road.

We've stayed at this hotel in the past and still find it a good place to stay. The hotel staff were very good and especially the dining room staff who catered for everyone's needs. The bedrooms are not lavish by any means but are good value for money for the 'short term' guest and are clean and tidy. This is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel 53 for a long weekend - we certainly don't have any compaints. We got the train in so can’t comment on the parking. The train station is just a £5 ish taxi journey away. The Hotel is in a brilliant location for exploring, only a 5-10 minute walk to the centre and a... More

Travelled in January for my 22nd birthday with my partner .. Great value for money, very modern hotel. Polite and friendly staff and good location. Close to York dungeons .. Quite a walk from the nightlife but hotel reception can call a taxi for you

Stayed here for 1 night December 21st. Excellent location to city centre, no more than a ten minute walk. Room was very nice and everything was great until the next morning while packing up I found a full finger nail extension in the bed where I had slept. I reported it to the receptionist on check out and gave her... More

The room was comfy and believe me, I spent a good deal of time here after getting sick and staying in bed for two days! Bed was amazing! The room is small but had a nice TV and was clean. Others in my party enjoyed their breakfast and it was located in a convenient spot within walking distance to shopping.... More

Stayed here for a week in August 2014. Nice room - well appointed. Staff were helpful but it seems the hotel was booked solid for the week of my stay which meant things like getting a seat for a breakfast difficult. Worse was the lifts - slow at best I spent way too long waiting to go up and down... More
