The York is very central, a short walk from Circular Quay and the Rocks, and two minutes from Wynyard station from where there are direct trains to the airport. We stayed there for one night only before heading off for the airport the next day. Apartments are clean and spacious, have cooking facilities and laundry facilities. Staff were very helpful,...

We stayed in an executive deluxe suite for a few days this week. Large plenty of space , a bit shabby in places. Positives....the staff were lovely, the view was great, the rooms were large, I would not call it 5 star though, as there were a few things that needed fixing, eg like plastering in the bathroom. Having said... More

Stayed here overnight to attend a couple of business meetings in Sydney. Very convenient location with Wynyard Station and a Coles supermarket just a couple of minutes away. You can also easily take a 10 minute scenic walk to The Rocks or 10 minutes the otherway will take you to Chinatown. I was upgraded to the double room apartment when... More

Having read some of the reviews for this hotel I am not sure what people expect! Our room was of an older style - that's what we paid for - but quite acceptable. I do not spend all my time in my room so all I expect is that the room does what it needs to. ie be clean and... More

I needed a bed for the night for a business meeting. Its not cheap but the price was good for the city on a discount web site. A car park was a winner and its a minute or so to walk to Circular Quay. The room was very well appointed and quiet but maybe I was dead to the world.

We have three teenage children and stayed in a 2 bed standard apartment. "Standard" means that the rooms and decor are old-style (non-refurbished) and I guess that some might feel that this would be a tatty look/feel. We found it comfortable and up to the standard that we would expect. The Standard 2 bed has 2 bathrooms and a study... More

Excellent location. 10 minute walk to Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Myer/David Jones. A 2 minute walk to Wynyard station. The units are dated (arched doorways and single-flush toilets, anyone?) but they have been well-maintained and they are clean. And they are ENORMOUS. There is quite a bit of traffic noise during the day but its perfecly all right at... More

Great location - 2 minute walk to the train station. Spacious apartments which are great for families. Our first apartment was on level 8 and was very noisy - the windows haven't been sound proofed and you can hear the train underneath pass frequently. As we have a baby we chatted to the manager about the noise and he moved... More

Swissotel located on York street is close to Wynyard train station. Staff were very pleasant and efficient. Room had a kitchen and was clean. Furniture was a bit worn. Can be a noisy location on a busy street.
