I've stayed here a few times. The hotel is friendly and the rooms are modern and minimalist- quite Nordic. Don't expect a wardrobe! The location is excellent. OK it's expensive but so are most hotels in central York! Great place to stay!! PS. Best restaurant is Number 19! Only 10 minutes walk

I'm leaving this review due to not being asked on checkout whether everything was ok with our stay and therefore not being able to give feedback directly. Arrived on very warm sunny evening and was delighted to walk in and feel the air con in full swing. One thing I will now always check is that a hotel has air... More

We found the room was very clean spacious and extremelycomfortable.. the bathroom included a power shower which was really refreshing and relaxing.. Breakfast choice in the morning is in abundance...

Me and my two sons stayed here mid August. Despite having paid 360 pounds for a family room for 2 nights (expensive even by London standards). The first thing I was asked when checking in at 3pm was to pay for my kids to have breakfast, 20 pounds for 2 days. My booking.com paperwork said we had booked a family... More

Stayed here early August 2016. The room was very nice, modern and clean. The shower was undoubtedly the best, most powerful shower I've ever experienced at a hotel. The location is great with the entirety of York just a stone throw away. Price itself was a tad high I would say but undoubtedly worth it. Only real issue was noise... More

Modern, clean hotel with helpful staff. I got very little sleep though because the room was uncomfortably hot and there was no air conditioning. I was given a fan but it was noisy and even the low setting was way too strong. Visiting York on business so really needed a good night's sleep for a demanding day ahead. Alas not... More

We got here late evening without a booking, 2 adults 1 child and were happily accommodated, was initially given a twin after asking for a double but was soon moved after they realised it wasn't the right room. Was a bit more than we were hoping to spend but I think it's about right for what it is. Car parking... More

Dear shfer9 Thank you for your review. I'm glad to see that our team were able to accommodate your last minute booking.

We stayed here for the races and paid £170!! Decent breakfast. Unfriendly young receptionist. Was made to move my car as they allocate spacers after you check in. Room small but modern. Hairs in shower. No air con and road was very busy. I've stayed here twice and it's ok.

We were a bit disappointed with this hotel. Having passed it many times during our visits to York we decided to give it a go as the location is very good, close to our favourite restaurants in York. However the room was too small to have an open sofa bed (there were 3 of us), this meant there was no... More

Dear Claire Thank you for your review of Hotel 53. I'm sorry to see that it wasn't quite as you had hoped.
