Stayed in a two bedroom apartment for two nights. Well appointed, clean and a great location. Good beds and nice views from the balconies. Only drawback, a little noisy at night time as there is some construction work going on in a neighboring building. Overall excellent stay.

I stayed in a not remodeled studio. So I knew it wouldn't be new. But it was still clean and nice enough. It was huge with a real kitchen, dining area, and living area and even a bedroom though there was no door, also a good sized patio. Still more room than two people needed. The location was excellent, just... 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!

We are continuously upgrading the standard apartments to reach the quality of our Deluxe apartments. We are lucky to have very large apartments in our property, some of the largest in the city.

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
