We were focussed on finding an affordable apartment in a good location for our family. It surprised us how spacious and central this place was. It really catered for our needs. Free Wifi was a bonus too.

So much space! We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. It was more than twice the size of the Mantra on Bond (only a block away) and was cheaper! Great location. Staff were really helpful. WIFI was a bit patchy at times was only downside in this modern well appointed apartment. Reported lost I-pod, which had been submitted... More

Location was great for wondering around the city, close to The Rocks, Circular Quay, George Street shops. 5 minute walk to Wynyard Train station. The apartment we stayed in was very clean, serviced daily, full kitchen, balcony and bed was very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Problem with wifi during our 4 day stay, however I understand technicians... More

My Teenage Daughter and I booked the York for a girlie trip to Sydney, and were very fortunate to take advantage of a mid winter special that was available directly via their Website. The Hotel was fantastic, albeit a wee bit dated in the décor, the amenities were fantastic. I originally booked a Studio and we were upgraded to a... More

Catching up with friends, I knew i would have to stay in Town rather than struggle home in the early hours on the train. Room was excellent overlooking the city landscape. Very comfortable rooms, very clean with great amenities. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Serviced Apartments are in a great location, making it very accessible to Circular... More

Stayed a Friday night, Very central location, close to Wynyard Station and parking around the back. Check in at 1.30 very good. We stayed in an un-renovated room at a great discount, but it still was good with a small kitchen and large open plan room. Would definitely stay again.

We recently stayed at The York for 3 nights and it was fantastic. You never quite know, when you open the door, what you might be getting but the apartment was just lovely, very spacious and so much better than a one dimensional hotel room. Access to the balcony from both the bedroom and living room, powder room plus bathroom... More

Our family of 5 stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It was okay, could do with modernising. The main bed was very low to the ground which would be difficult for some people to get in and out of. The bathroom was not very well cleaned as it had dust/ lint sitting on top of the tiles. There were no... More
