There must have been different staff during our stay, because I don't recognise the ultra-helpful people in the other reviews. Our room was small, so was the bed, and the bathroom was tiny. The carpet looked grubby. As we were there to celebrate my 50th birthday, it was especially disappointing to be somewhere less than ideal. It's also a fairly long walk from the centre, about 15 minutes, so once you're out, you stay out. We didn't try the restaurant, but the breakfast was excellent (except the scrambled eggs, which are powdered and not nice.) The free car park and wifi are bonuses you don't get many other places. We didn't try the pool/sauna. The place has an air of neglect, from the stale smell to the worn carpets. We love York, and I had hoped that the Kilima would become our base for future trips, but the search for an affordable, comfortable convenient hotel in York goes on.
