A well situated mid range modern hotel 5 min walk to the centre of York. The rooms are tastefully furnished and the beds really comfortable. There was some noise from the air con units below our room (206) but it didn't bother us. The large fluffy towels were wonderful. Really good hotel for a night or two. We stayed two... More

I booked this hotel as a last minute getaway. I was greeted warmly and the hotel was spotless and the room was good also.... Very clean - cleanest one i have been in for a while - not a spot of dust any where. Yes the rooms are slightly smaller than most hotel rooms but the items in the room... More

Stayed here on a business trip and will use this hotel again if I am in the area. The hotel has parking in a secure area across from the hotel at £10 a day. Service was great in reception, the bar and the restaurant.

Well located in the centre of York, only a few minutes walk from the main attractions. Arrived by train and found it was only a leisurely 15 minute walk to the hotel. Car parking is available at a cost (£10/ night), although there are limited spaces but there are two other car parks very close by. Very modern lobby with... More

This is very obviously a budget hotel, but we knew this on booking and adjusted our expectations accordingly. Although a budget hotel they were able to accommodate us with a same day booking, even allowing an early check in, in an albeit small room, but which was very clean. The staff were very pleasant, the location perfect, just two minutes... More

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Hotel 53. I am sorry that you perceive us to be a budget hotel.

Good locaiton close to York centre - hotel itself was most interested in the additional Parking charge. Family room was tiny - a DB and sofabed crammed in - had to jump into bed. Bedside glass shelves an issue as overhung the pillow due to re-arrangements (so banged my nose while asleep). Heater too close to DB and one when... More

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Hotel 53. I am a bit confused with your comment 'hotel itself was most interested in the additional Parking charge'. We are a city centre hotel in York where parking is at a premium. All hotels within the city walls charge for their parking and at our last check a... More

Booked the hotel at fairly short notice initially through Booking.com but then booked direct with the hotel as it was cheaper! Booked a family room which was adequate and clean and it's only a short walk from the city centre so perfect for weekend breaks. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.
