We stayed 5 nights and thought the York was well located and good value. Very close to Wynyard Station, quick walk to everywhere we wanted to go. Pleasant, helpful staff who looked after us well. Our view was not wonderful, but our one bedroom apartment was surprisingly spacious. Other guests were noisy, but that was not the York's fault. Would... More

Stayed overnight at The York hotel recently. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect based on the reasonable price of the hotel and the outside appearance of the building. How pleasantly surprised I was! For only having booked a standard studio (not sure whether I received an upgrade upon check in), the room was huge with king sized bed (very... More

Thank you for your review. We are somewhat of a hidden gem. Behind that facade (built in the 70's) we're hiding the largest serviced apartments in the city and you can't fault the location with most tourism attractions within walking distance. I will makes sure to pass on your lovely remarks to all staff members and we hope to welcome... More

Booked this hotel after reading mixed reviews, but was most influenced by location and those who said they always stay at The York when in Sydney. My husband and I totally agree with these opinions and also would book this hotel if we return to Sydney. We had a room on the 9th floor with a balcony overlooking York St.... More

Travelling for work and I needed to stay close to the clients office. Nice surprise to find the York in a great location. Short walk to Darling and Sydney harbours. Presentation in the front foyer isn't great but the rooms are great.

My husband, myself and three children spent two nights there recently and would definitely stay again. Perfect location with accessibility to train, bus and ferries. Staff were all wonderful. Our plane wasn't leaving until later in the afternoon and they were happy to look after our suitcases and book a shuttle bus to the airport. Very spacious two bedroom apartment... More

My wife and I booked into this apartment based on trip adviser reviews and were not disappointed. Location was great and we had arrived early and asked if we could leave our cases while we went to the opera house for a tour we had booked. This was no problem and in fact we were allowed to check straight in... More

Hotel was comfortable & clean. Bit dated. We stayed in a deluxe 2 bedder. Set up for a family. Broken drawers in 2nd room. Only 2 bathrobes per room even though 4 adults. Would not pay full price here
