The York by Swiss-Belhotel
Ranked #54 of 181 Hotels in Sydney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Not inexpensive, but we found it to be very convenient to Circular Quay, ferries, restaurants. The room we had was fine, roomy and clean. Worth it in our book. We recommend taking the vans from the airport to reach the hotel and back. Worth the ride.

I stayed in the hotel for a month, travelled to Sydney for business. Location was spectacular. 2 minute walk to Wynyard train station. 10-15 minute walk to darling harbour. Many food options around you. The apartment is fully equipped with laundry machine, full kitchen, toilet, living room and bed room.

Stayed here for what turned out to be 2 hours prior to leaving for the airport - so only used to freshen up and for them to store our bags after coming off a cruise ship that morning.

Location was very good and the staff appeared helpful however they have taken a AUS$3.50 off my credit card for no reason - after insisting on having credit card details prior to check in - room was paid for in full several months ago but they said they needed the credit card details in case I had a party in the room. Realise this is an international policy but I did NOT use anything in the room other than to shower - surely it can't be a charge for the water used!

The room itself was large but very tired and worn but the location was very good for getting around - but for a longer stay I personally would look elsewhere.

We stayed here for the first 3 days of our 4 week honeymoon. It has a full kitchen and laundry in the apts. it's very close to everything, the rocks, the opera house, the ferry terminal, restaurants, lots of pubs and coffee shops. We enjoyed it as our first stop and would recommend it to friends.

First impression, dull and the staff were bland.
The apartment looked good in the photo gallery but in reality was tired and worn and in need of care.
We had an issue with our bathroom having what looked like fruit fly coming from the sink so we informed staff . We did get a response however it did not help the issue.
It was lovely to have bathrobes and toiletries supplied which were stocked up daily.
The kitchen had amply provisions but the tap dripped and the inside of the cupboards smelt stale.
Loved the balcony which is a good size and the location is within walking distance to the Rocks, Circular Quay and Wynyard Railway Station.
Overall, this was an expensive stay and wouldn't give it a four star rating.
Perplexed Trip Advisor does!

I had a whirlwind 24 hours to spend in Sydney, not nearly enough! The York was clean, comfortable, spacious and in a great location. I was able to easily walk to/from The York from the Wynyard Train station where the Airport Link train stopped. I strolled into the Rocks for a beer and dinner after my arrival and the next morning I was able to walk to the Opera House and other Sydney landmarks. When I return to Sydney I'll want to stay at The York!

Whenever we travel to Sydney from the Central Coast we stay at The York. Great location. Friendly helpful staff. However why oh why are the lounges in each room we have stayed in so uncomfortable? Love the balcony and the spaciousness. Very clean. We love the kitchen to store your drinks and lovely snack food from David Jones food hall that is a must for us. Good quality coffee is a bonus.
I had a complaint last time and found the staff concerned and felt listened to.
