We stayed here in early October 2014 and were very pleased with this apartment hotel. It was spacious and elegantly furnished and exceeded our expectations in all respects. Bed was comfy, bathroom large and very clean PLUS it had a washer and dryer. Would definitely book here again if ever in Sydney.

Very helpful staff. Room was clean and bigger than we expected. Bed was very comfortable and we had a good night sleep. Was some traffic noise but nothing to keep us awake.We took the train from the airport and got off at Wynyard Station and to our surprise the hotel was only 100mt from the Station, one train stop to...

My partner and I are Sydney locals however live only a tad too far from the city centre; enough for us to want to stay in a hotel for a night ever so often when hitting the town. We had a gathering over at the Opera Bar, which is about a 10-15 min walk away from The York. Location wise... More

In years gone by this apartment hotel was considered one of Sydney's better accommodations. Alas this is no longer the 80's and times have changed. Let's start with the pluses. It is well located and easy to get to the Rocks, Circular Quay, King Street Wharf and only a few blocks from the main shopping district. It is easy to... More

The cost of hotels in Sydney was frightening, and reviews were mixed, so we booked with some worry. The carpet was a little worn, and the walk from Circular Quay was uphill, but the apartment was clean and comfortable, large and well appointed, bedroom, living room and dining room section, kitchen, bathroom with washer and dryer. There was a grocery... More

Very good service, excellent apartment only downside is lack of restaurant, DO NOT go to the Travelodge next door for breakfast. Good parking at reasonable rate, walking distance to "the Rocks" for good food and a slice of history

Great location with easy parking for $30 per night (cheap for Sydney compared to other places and secure - lift straight from car-park to hotel lobby. Suite was clean, bathroom spacious. A bit dated. Air conditioner in bedroom noisy. Only stayed one night. The hotel uses Travelodge next door for breakfast and you can buy a pre-paid voucher for $20... More

The York is very central, a short walk from Circular Quay and the Rocks, and two minutes from Wynyard station from where there are direct trains to the airport. We stayed there for one night only before heading off for the airport the next day. Apartments are clean and spacious, have cooking facilities and laundry facilities. Staff were very helpful,...
