“Good hotel, excellent location.”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

I stayed here on Friday 13th December. Had read past reviews so had a good idea of what to expect. The hotel its self is excellent, clean, modern and in a very good location. Yes the room was a little on the small side but it had everything you would expect and it didn't seem too cramped at all. The room is noisy on a night as mentioned in past reviews. Also, the air con/heating fan blows all night. Not only does this become a little annoying it also makes the air very dry and gave me a bit of a sore throat. I find this is the case with all hotels though.

The staff I encountered were friendly and efficient. All in all I would recommend Hotel 53 and I would stay here again.

Excellent modern hotel, very convenient for city centre, secure parking although extra. The staff all very pleasant and helpful. Rooms clean with everything you need. No noise problems, but windows closed. Breakfast buffet good, not massive, but everything nice. Would stay again.

Just back from an overnight stay at Hotel 53. Room small but clean and cosy. Very comfortable bed but as commented on before, windows have open vents that mean you can't block out the traffic sounds. Staff very friendly and professional.

Pros:
Hotel room, bathroom were clean.

Receptions were helpful and friendly.

Location of the hotel was 10minutes walk from centre. About 5minutes away from Tesco/Atms etc...

Cons: Sound on TV was poor.

Having to connect to wifi every few hours.

Guy at reception was unhelpful.

This is a simply excellent modern hotel, ideally situated within 10 minutes of York centre (Shambles) . Incredibly clean, well furnished and impeccably managed.
Check in was first class, with a very helpful receptionist who arranged parking for me in the limited parking opposite the hotel, the parking is granted on a 'first come first served' basis.
The room was excellent, with a very well fitted suite of items (hair dryer, trouser press, TV and an immaculate shower)
We ate in the restaurant on the first evening and the menu, service and food was excellent (and very reasonably priced)
Breakfast was perhaps the best I have seen in a UK Hotel; none of the wafer thin streaky bacon here; all on a hot plate, but the minute the fried eggs get to that rubbery stage, they are removed and replaced with fresh ones). The service during breakfast, was like the rest of the service within the hotel, excellent.
On our last morning, the receptionist arranged for us to retain the parking until 1300 free of charge so that we could end our trip without looking for parking (which in York is extortionate and as our visit coincided with the York St Nicholas' Fair (Christmas Market) at a premium.
First Class and highly recommended!!

This hotel is very stylish rooms are cosy and the location is superb. The only things I would say that was wrong was the noise from outside the hotel was horrendous as the windows weren't sealed properly with the vents and also the heaters weren't that great even on full it still wasnt that warm. Would recommend tho for price

We only booked a week in advance and were undecided which hotel to choose. We knew we only wanted a base and didn't plan on staying in the room for long. The room whilst not being overly spacious (had a king-size bed) was clean, bedding/towels top quality, very comfy bed, shower powerful and no problems with hot water. The buffet breakfast (which is a bit pricey for York at £10.95 if you don't pre-pay) was spot on. Housekeeping were attentive, all staff friendly and helpful especially Emma. It's only a 5 minute walk to town - perfectly placed for museum and Clifford's Mount. Great pub even nearer -within 2 minutes walk (Mason's Arms). Very pleased we chose Hotel 53 and would do so again. Only given 4* as I couldn't get connected to W-Fi at all during stay but connected within seconds across the road in The Masons Arms! :)
