I stayed here for a few nights in March. The room was very clean and nicely sized. It was a good distance from town so it wasn't hard to walk in and see all the attractions. Breakfast was slightly below average, and the selection wasn't that extensive but it sufficed. The main let down for me was they had removed... More

Stayed here last night and it was lovely. Nice and clean and a lovely sized room. Had a room that over looked Clifford tower which was really nice to see and a 5 minute walk there to boot. Restaurant was amazing! The waiter was extremely attentive and couldn't do enough for us. Although a bit pricey we thought it was... More

The room was lovely, the hotel is in a great location. However we found it a bit unusual for a large hotel in a city not to serve any food at all on an evening at weekends.When we checked in we paid to keep the room on our day of departure until 1pm . On the day of departure the... More

This hotel is very conveniently located for exploring York staff were very friendly, and sorted out the heating in our room very quickly when we pointed out it was rather cold. Our room was clean and had a very comfortable bed.

We stayed at the Hotel 53 for a special occassion and the hotel stay was adequate, the room was small and a basic double room. However beware I have been charged an additional £100 for smoking in the room and I have informed them that both my husband and myself do not smoke and did not smoke in the room.... More

Hotel 53 is a non-smoking building, there are signs on the front door, a note on your registration card advising that should you smoke in your room there will be a charge of £100 applied, and no-smoking signage also in all bedrooms. This guest departed at 9.30am, the next person to enter this guests room was our housekeeping manager (we... More

Stayed at Hotel 53 for one night recently although my partner and I have stayed there before, back in 2009. The hotel is clean, tidy with a modern looking decor. The rooms are fairly spacious and the bathroom had a very nice shower unit with plenty of hot water - which was great. The hotel was however quite noisy (it... More

My husband and I spent the weekend in this hotel. I would recommend this place. Reasonably priced and very closed go the town centre. Staff was friendly and quick to solve few little issues. Overall it was a great experience and I would stay here again.

Really easy to find by car and parking easy. Perfect location and only a 5 min walk to centre of York. We could see the minster from our room window which was lovely. Very helpful staff and very modern hotel. A great pub across the road ideal for drinks or food if you wanted a change from the hotel. The... More

Thank you for your review of your stay at Hotel 53. I agree we have a great location, less than 5 minutes walk to the main shopping centre, and even less to many of York's great attractions. I am sorry you found us a little pricey, we do monitor our rates against our competitors on a daily basis. York as... More
