Guy Fawkes hotel recently reopened after a renovation. We stayed there in room 8 for two nights. The location as stated is absolutely the best, right across the street and with magnificent views of the Minster. It is within a short walk of all attractions in York. The cons are that our room was very small and was located on the third floor with a very uneven 500 year old staircase to negotiate with your luggage. The first floor is a very popular pub which also serves as the hotel front desk. One final con is that there is no phone in the room to call the management when there are no towels.
