“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I booked York city apartments for my friends hen weekend, we had Buckingham Court, Merchant exchange and all but one of the Reubens Court, every aparment was furnished to a very high standard, and had everything you could possibly need, plenty of milk,tea. coffee etc, waffles and sparkling wine on arrival which was a lovley touch !! all were spottlessly clean and very spacious. Buckingham Court sofa is the comfiest sofa i have ever sat on !! they had full sky tv packages although we didnt use it as didnt have time, the view in merchants court was out of this world and it was such a luxury apartment (this is where the hen stayed) and it was just lovley, very posh all open plan. All i can say is that every apartment was lovley and clean with all you would need for a nice relaxed break, the owners were very knowledgable about the area and had plenty of info of where to go etc and even offered a discount at nearby the Living Room restaurnat and bar, but we choose to eat at 31 castlegate which was also lovley. Easy check in/check out, all within a 5 minute walk to the city centre but also it was nice and quiet so there was no noise disturbance, all in all this was a perfect stay in perfect apartments and i will be returning and would definalty reccomend to a friend. thanks for a great stay Nick & Nicola

Room Tip: if you want a view then go to Merchants Court on the riverside

Hi. Thank you for your excellent review of our apartments for your recent stay in York. We are really pleased everyone (including the bride to be) enjoyed themselves. I understand organizing something like this is not easy, hopefully we made it that bit easier for you..!

We are looking forward to seeing you again near the end of June.

Thank you for your booking.

Many thanks

Nick & Nicola

Stayed in No 1 Ruebens Court (ground floor, one bedroom) for a couple of nights, which is located in the southern part of city, within the city wall, in a quiet residential area. We actually booked the apartment the night before we went, so credit to the owners for getting everything sorted so promptly! Spoke to Nick, one of the owners, on the phone (he called us), who explained how to find the place - he then sent us the necessary details by text message. Seemed really nice on the phone.

On arrival, we found the place really easily, although beware if you have a really big or wide car - you may have some trouble negotiating the streets! Parked up and retrieved the free parking permit, which is a rare thing in York! Most hotels only have limited parking and usually charge for this. The flat itself was clean and well-decorated - the ornaments and light fittings were nice touches that made it feel a lot more welcoming than some places. The welcome pack was much appreciated - especially the bottle of wine (the waffles went down a treat too)!

To give an idea of the size, the apartment is bigger than your average hotel room, but smaller than the average one-bed flat - so perfect for a couple on a short city break. The kitchen is small but well-equipped and opens out onto the lounge, which has a 3-seat sofa and a dining table. There is also a full Sky package, flat-screen TV, DVD player and an iPod docking station for those who want to use them (we did watch a short DVD on the 2nd night). The bedroom is fairly compact, as is the bathroom, but most people wouldn't have a problem with this (I'm a fairly curvy lass, and it was fine). The underfloor heating in the bathroom was a treat! It was also good to be able to control the heating (unlike in most hotels), except we both wanted different temperatures.

The location is as about as central as you can get for somewhere decent at that price (and I did a lot of research!!). It takes around 5-10 minutes to walk to the high street shops, and around 15 to get to the Shambles (assuming an average pace). The street that the apartments are located on can be a bit dark at night, and there is an alleyway nearby, so I'd recommend lone female travellers to get a taxi, although this applies everywhere really. The neighbourhood appears to be residential, with a mix of houses and apartments, and was pretty quiet and felt really safe.

All in all, I really enjoyed my stay, and the accommodation helped to make my 30th (shh!) really special. I will definitely be staying here again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends.

One last note - these apartments seemed to have an entry on Tripadvisor under 'City Apartments York' as well.

We stayed in 15 Merchant Exchange, which is right by the river in York but owned by the same people as Reubens Court. The apartment's location is fabulous, just across the bridge from the city centre so it only took us minutes to walk to shops, restaurants and tourist attractions.
The apartment itself is very comfortable, with an open plan living area, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms which was great for staying with another couple as we did. Parking is below the building and a lift takes you up to the 3rd floor, so it's easy to stay somewhere with such great views down the river and across the city. The beds are comfortable, it's was lovely to have SkyHD and wi-fi included and the finishing touches like the welcoming bottle of fizz and waffles were really appreciated!
I think it's quite likely that we will book it again in the future, and we would definitely recommend it to others looking for a great city break!

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends for special occasion. First impressions were good. The apartment was spotless and modern and spacious enough for 3 girls. Good location. Much better than Victoria Cloisters apartments which are close by!

We stayed for 2 nights at 4 Reubens Court. Communication with owners was professional and very helpful. I am glad they sent us a picture of the street as I would have thought the taxi driver was mistaken. The apartments are hidden at the end of a small quiet terraced street 10 mins walk from the station and city centre. We had a top floor apartment which was spacious enough for the 2 of us but could sleep 3 as sofa bed in living room, plus travel cot and high chair is stored in wardrobe. The décor was stylish, modern and well thought out. Free wifi and sky+ was a bonus along with a free parking permit if required The complimentary bottle of bubbly, breakfast waffles, tea, coffee and milk and toiletries were well received and a nice touch you do not get from over priced hotels! There are lots of local restaurants on Micklegate if you don't want to venture to far at night, but if you do you will be spoiled for choice. We will return.

My girlfriend and I stayed at number 1 for three nights and it was good, as all the all reviews state. We initially had problems with the tv but the woman she rang sorted out all the issues.

The waffles and sparkling wine was definitely a nice touch when we arrived, it made my girlfriend really happy, oh and there was an iron there

All I can say, which was a bug bear of mine is that you couldn't watch the tv when the bedroom door was open, I know the apartment is compact but still it takes my missus ages to get ready

The reason why I marked down for value is because on the booking rooms website it showed different rooms and a different apartment that I thought I booked. As being someone that's busy the majority of the time especially recently I didn't have time to investigate it fully.
