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

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

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

Very very good location, just a few minutes walk to the Rocks, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. 2 bed apartment on 23rd floor was massive and the "study" area even had another double sofa bed if required. Staff very helpful at front desk. Minor negatives: No view of bridge as obscured by other buildings, internet isn't free (come on Australia... More

We were surprised by how large the apartment was. There was heaps of room in the 2 bedroom apartment for the two adults and three children. There was a full kitchen although we didn't really use it, it would be great for a longer stay. The hotel was very well located between Darling Harbour and Circular Quay and also very... More

The apartment was much bigger than I expected, with a large bathroom and spacious balcony. The location was ideal - quite a quiet street, but in walking distance of Circular Quay and the shops. I had a problem with the wifi, and they sent a couple of guys up who were really helpful, even though we couldn't get it to... More
