4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for a week with our teenage sons. The rooms were good size with a large kitchen area with all the amenities. Overall the stay was great, close to the train station and only a 5 min walk to Barangaroo and onto Darling harbour. The bathroom was a little dated with the taps being very noisy to turn on at night and we struggled to get the water temperature in the shower right as there was a hot and cold tap to contend with - maybe they could update this to a mixer? The House keeping staff were very helpful and did a great job. The only complaint I have is the bed was very hard and I had a sore back so asked for a extra duvet or something I could use to soften the bed, management said they didn't have anything but a woolen blanket. We ended up having to buy a mattress overlay which helped immensely, i would have thought they would have had onsite.

Stayed here for a weekend getaway in the city. Great location to King St Wharf. Staff at reception were friendly. Our room was a one bedroom apartment. Our view was of the pool area. Our friends apartment view was of the city and it was fantastic. Room devote was a little dated but the bed and pillows were comfortable and the shower was good. I would definitely stay here again on my next city trip

Arrived here at 9.30am after a cruise, expected to put luggage on hold and wander until room ready. Advised that room was ready for us and we could check in. Fantastic. 2 bedroom apartment, with washing machine and dryer. 10 minute stroll to Darling Harbor with very good dining options. Unit had a kitchenette if you wanted to cook, full size fridge and comfy lounge. Free wifi also. Minor service issues reported and fixed whilst we were out. Daily serviced.Its not flash, good basic accommodation that is close to major attractions and train station. Would certainly come back here

Arrived early with bags and goodies. Staff put food in refrigerator for me and stowed our bags until room was ready. All the staff were really good not one complaint about any of them nothing was too much trouble. Housekeeping were good too doing our room up and leaving enough tea and coffee for the 5 of us. Even the wine in the mini bar was good and nice tasting and only $20 a bottle a very good price. We had a view over to Luna Park which look lovely lit up at night. Would definately stay there again.

We recently stayed at The York the night before a cruise. It was a easy walk from Wynyard station and also to the overseas cruise terminal even with a heavy bag each ( bags had rollers) the room was clean and roomy. It was self contained with washing machine/dryer and kitchenette. Bed and pillows were comfortable. I would definitely stay there again

There was everything you need here. I would definitely stay here again. There is a kitchen, laundry, mini fridge including a breakfast if you want it. Coffee, ice, anything you need. Comfortable and lots of room

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at The York for a 2 nights in Sydney. The location was excellent and the apartment comfortable, clean and really a home away from home. We felt very relaxed and both slept well. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I would definitely book here again.

We booked The York at the last minute but as usual the standard was excellent. We were in 1104 overlooking the church on Jamison Street which has a good view along the Harbour Bridge, is quiet and has a large balcony not to mention the also large living, dining and kitchen. Excellent bedroom with really comfortable bed and loads of storage space. There was also a seperate bathroom plus shower room and laundry. Free WiFi is also a huge benefit. Pool, spa and sauna area still excellent. Staff friendly, efficient and thanks go to them for sorting a taxi for us to go to the airport. We will return as we have on many occasions.

I was in Sydney for business while staying in York. It's in the perfect location, with walkable distance to the business district along with any touristy parts of the city. The flat itself has anything you'd need - washing machine, kitchen, bath tube etc. Will happily stay here again next time.

Two of us shared a 2 bedroom deluxe suite. It was surprisingly large, with 1 Queen and 1 double bed, 2 bathrooms, laundry and combined kitchen, dining, lounge area. Big enough to stay out of each other's way, and we could certainly hold meetings without sight of an unmade bed. On the subject of the bed, I have no complaints - nice new linen, lots of pillows and was comfortable. Could do with more towels in the bathroom (but a separate shower), but that's just me. It was a bit old, partially renovated but certainly offered great value. It isn't a full service hotel, so no restaurant or coffee shop on site, but the location is excellent. 5 minutes walk to the offices and restaurants at Barangaroo, easy transfer to the airport with Wynyard station 2 minutes walk away. It would even satisfy as a family base as it is also within walking distance of Darling Harbour, The Rocks and Circular Quay (and the CBD of course). Would probably stay here again as I really enjoy spacious rooms - and a standalone shower rather than stepping into a bath!
