Important Bits!: The keys are now collected from a local shop which closes at 5PM on Fridays. This gives a greater degree of flexibility for you, our lovely guests, but obviously needs factoring in to your arrival plans. If you are planning to arrive at the weekend, then you'll be met by our brilliant housekeeper Polly. Note on prices: Trip advisor always advertises the cheapest nightly rate based on a 7 night stay. Usually in the low or standard season we will accept 2 night bookings at a rate of £350 plus the fee which Trip Advisor charges on top, making it around £377. However please do contact us if you want to make us an offer! The apartment is situated right at the heart of the city of York within the city walls, in a peaceful location overlooking the ancient Merchant Adventurer...Important Bits!: The keys are now collected from a local shop which closes at 5PM on Fridays.

However please do contact us if you want to make us an offer! The apartment is situated right at the heart of the city of York within the city walls, in a peaceful location overlooking the ancient Merchant Adventurers Hall. Situated at the heart of the best shopping, restaurants and bars in the city, our apartment is perfect for couples, or a couple of couples visiting the town looking for comfortable, high quality self catering accommodation and enjoy the many local attractions. We welcome children (please no play dough though!) and provide a travel cot. The apartment is serviced by a lift, and is therefore accessible to everyone. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate pets. We have two bedrooms, one bathroom and an open plan kitchen/living area (featuring stone work surfaces) which opens on to a balcony overlooking the river Foss and the Merchant Adventurers gardens. We have under-floor heating, and a blu ray player (which is internet connected and able to use BBC iPlayer etc) and wi-fi. As of October 2016 we have upgraded the sofas to a larger and more comfortable arrangement. Therefore the photo of the sitting area is now a little out of date, but hopefully in a good way! Parking is provided by means of a York City parking pass, which also allows parking in any York City Car park, with the nearest one being Castle car park, which is about 3 minutes walk from the front door. Smoking is not allowed anywhere, including the balcony where there is an air intake for the the ventilation system. More

The flat looks much better in the photo than in actuality- kitchen grubby and poorly equipped, grubby carpets and curtains. The view to the right of the balcony of the river/ bridge is spoilt by the view to the left of the road/ car park....More

About the neighborhood
Merchants Place is - as the reviews show - in a central location, about 5 minutes walk from the city centre. It is at the heart of a newly re-developed area of the town and surrounded by smart coffee shops, bars and also traditional pubs. The flat itself is slightly hidden away on the second floor of a modern apartment building, and we have found it to be peaceful and convenient, affording the ability to pop back for lunch on the balcony before getting back out to explore...but don't take our word for it, read the reviews from our guests to get a feel for the experience of others, which are in the main all 5 star!
Getting around
The flat is ideally located in the centre of town...the best way to see the sights is just to walk to them. You could get an open top bus tour around the city locally or for further afield you could walk to the rail station and go exploring!
