This was our second trip back to The York and as we were very pleased with the apartment we stayed in on our first visit elected to to pay the extra for a deluxe apartment. Unfortunately the standard of the apartments are not consistant as the apartment we were given on our second trip was well under par of the... More

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.

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.
