Stayed at Hotel 53, for the second time. Hotel is clean and modern. Also provides a Car Park opposite the hotel which is cheap and convenient. Hotel is 3/4 minutes walk into York centre. Only issue was pillows were slightly more firm for my liking, however beds for comfortable and enjoyed our stay.

We arrived early and managed to get the parking across the road which was very reasonable compared to all the other car parks in York. All the staff we spoke to were really helpful and friendly. The room was average but clean (no better than a Premier Inn). I think we were given a accessible room as there was no... More

Well I learnt never to come back to this hotel. It is so hot I'm having trouble sleeping. There is no aircon and I can't open the window as there is a continual roar of traffic even late into the night. Sounds like cars are coming in the window so can't leave that open. There is someone in the room... More

We were very happy with our stay at Hotel 53, we were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the accommodation for the price we paid. The room was very clean, toiletries and bathroom adequate, size of bed for a standard room was excellent! We arrived quite early expecting just to have our bags stored, but our rooms were ready so...

Very comfortable. Friendly staff. Wonderful shower. Negatives: a bit pricey, little view (though my 5th floor room had a view over the roof tops). Parking just across the road, convenient, not sure how secure.
