The York is very central and is good value. We had a one bedroom apartment which was spacious and clean although a little tired. It is easy walking distance to Circular Quay, city shopping and a bit more of a walk to Darling Harbor. Be aware you are right next to the main entry point to the bridge, so lots... More

The rooms were a good size, staff service fantastic and the location perfect to walk everywhere you wanted to go in Sydney. It was nice to have an apartment to stay in to give you the extra room, but it still has all the extra service supplied by a hotel.

Great hotel/Apartments very spacious and clean, has a three bedroom unit on 28th floor a bit of traffic noise would be the only issue. The staff was great and the hotel is perfectly situated in the city between Darling Harbour and Cicrcular Quay, everything in walking distance would definatley stay here with my family again

The perfect location and an "apartment" (room, living room, fully equipped kitchen) style made our stay in Sydney much more enjoyable and convenient - we didn't need taxi nor a car to visit the sightseeings and the beaches and were able to cook and have breakfast in our place.

Arrived slightly earlier than 1.30 check in time so had a slight wait for room as apparently being cleaned. Stayed in 2 bedroom deluxe apartment with partner and 2 young children. Impressed with location but that's all- had to move both bed and settee slightly as kids dropped something that went underneath- appalled by dirtiness! Looked like they had never... More

Thank you for your review. I would like to offer my sincere apologies. I will not make excuses for this lack of service and attention to detail - but I can say is that this incident was one of the exceptions and is not our usual standard.

Have Stayed at the York apartment hotel (5 York St, Sydney) a number of times. Apartments are studio, 1 or 2 bedrooms, and I generally stay in a 1 bedroom. Rooms are large, good facilities and amenities with large balcony. Hotel is very centrally located. Some rooms have yet to be refurbished but those that have look good. Apartments have... More

We stayed on the 16th floor in a one bedroom apartment. The apartment was very spacious and extremely well equipped. The washer and dryer came in very useful after three weeks touring. The location is ideal for exploring Sydney on foot and is only a couple of minutes away from the train station. Reception staff very friendly and wouldn't hesitate... More

Family of four stayed in a one bedroom with sofa bed. Good sized bedroom and lounge. Small balcony too. We asked for a room on a high floor away from lifts and got what we requested. We were not on the main road so wasn't too noisy. Kitchen was perfect just to make breakfast. We ate at the Japanese place... More

The location is convenient. Our room was on level 6 and extremely noisy due to traffic but we were on a cheap rate so got what we paid for. The apartment was a good size and clean ( although a bit dated) and had everything we needed - clean bed and bathroom. Check in was seamless. Easy 10 minute walk... More
