The hotel is in a good location being central to all the main attractions around the Sydney. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient, the room we stayed in was spacious clean and well equipped. The one problem we did have was noise, ( we did ask for a quiet room when we checked in.) Our room was on the... More

Booked on ebookers website. Initially booked two standard one bedroom studio apartments (for a family of four). When I wrote to the hotel to request for a twin bed configuration in one apartment and a double bed in another, I was told that the twin bed option was only available if we upgraded to a deluxe studio at $30 per...

Clean, spacious, close to the Quay and Darling Harbour, good value. From the brown bathroom to the wood edged Laminex kitchen, this place is classic 80s...and is wearing pretty well for what I believe was built and decorated around 30 years ago! A family of 5, we went for the 2 bedroom option with sofa bed in the study....my 18... More

I booked the York for my first 5 nights in Sydney. From check in to check out the staff were fantastic. The room had a lovely large bathroom, excellent sized and equipped kitchen and good laundry services. The location is the real selling point for this apart-hotel. It is walking distance to both darling harbour and circular quay and the... More

We stayed here because we couldn't get a room where we usually stay (due to City to Surf). We were very pleased with the Deluxe Studio, it had plenty of room, big kitchen & bathroom & good TV & comfortable bed. Parking was excellent, lots of room, I left my car confident it wouldn't have a door ding in it... More

Thank you for your review. We have an extremely convenient location, for all sorts of activities this big city has to offer, especially the city to surf. Apartments on the Northeast side do offer a more open view, however, they are a bit noisier. On your next stay, don't hesitate to make a request for your preferred location. We appreciate... More

We were in Sydney for a performance at the Opera House. We picked the York for its proximity to this venue, because we wanted a self catering facility, and because we needed to park a car without walking a huge distance to the accommodation. Our needs were more than adequately met. We've stayed at various other hotels in Sydney and... More

Service was usually good. Room make up was slow but room size and facilities were very good. Room was close to Circular Quay and the Rocks. Parking was a bit tight. Saturday night there was loud late night noise on the floor outside.

I stayed at the York for 5 nights while on business in Sydney. The location was very central with Wynyard station barely 25 metres away making it easy to get to and from the airport by train. The staff were friendly and helpful and check in was a breeze. The room, a one bedroom apartment, had all you would need:... More

Thank you for sharing your feedback following your recent experience at The York by Swiss-Belhotel. Unfortunately, whilst we are in a great location for all things Sydney has to offer it does mean we cannot escape the hustle and bustle noise the city also offers. We appreciate you taking the time to review us, and we hope to welcome you... More

Once again I was not disappointed and loved being back at The York for four nights in June. I always appreciate the handy location for shopping and there are always taxi's around the area as well as Wynyard Station a short walk away. I was on the 11th floor and had a great view of the Harbour Bridge. The reception... More
