Upon arrival we met with Frank the owner who arranged to meet us on the car park at the back of the apartment to give us the car park passes and take us to the City 3 apartment. What a lovely gent he was. Once we arrived at the apartment which was close by we were greeted to a clean and well presented property with ample space. As a welcome from Frank & Jayne they had left a nice bottle of wine and also ensured that their was tea and coffee making facilities for us and milk etc, I wasn't expecting this and it was a lovely gesture. I cannot fault the apartment, it had ample space for the two of us and had everything we needed in it. The location was fantastic and close by to all amenities like supermarket Sainsbury's on corner, Indian restaurant down stairs, kebab shop over the road along with ample pubs. That was us sorted then lolx. Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone, owners are lovely and it is cost effective in comparison to other hotels and B&B in area.

“weekend stay”

excellent apartment was in great location and parking was supplied by the owners at their cost which is a nice touch as hard to find in York. Property was nice size and layout for the 2 of us for our short stay. Only thing was lack of windows that opened and being such nice weather and hot it was a problem. But the owner has taken this on board and is going to deal with issue. Owner meets you in car park to sort you with parking permit and then shows you round property. Nice thing was welcome pack on arrival tea, milk and biscuits. Shops all close by sainsburys on corner and short walk to York centre.

“Great location”

What a great location, close to everything so didn't need to use our car unless we wanted to go further afield and so quiet. We had a parking permit included in the price and parking was close by. The apartment is compact but is not a problem as it is very well thought out. The kitchen was well equipped we even had a bottle of wine left for us which was a lovely touch. We couldn't fault the cleanliness or the comfortable bed. My only criticism would be no wifi but that isn't a major problem. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to my friends and family.

“Well located compact apartment”

We have stayed in York a few times over the last 3 years and City3 provided us with a compact place to stay, relatively cheaply, in an excellent location. The flat is nicely furnished but owing to its compact nature there wasn't space to house a dishwasher. We were very comfortable in our stay there. We hadn't realised there wasn't wifi in the flat and this might be something that could be added to improve the property for future users. If available we would definitely rent this again.

“Excellent apartment - just what we wanted and great location”

This is an ideal apartment for a couple or a single for a stay in York. The accommodation was smart, clean and well appointed. There were thoughtful touches (a bottle of wine as well as tea, coffee and milk). The location was perfect - less that 100 metres from the Bootham Bar gateway. It is located in a very quiet building and with little traffic noise, even during rush hour. Complimentary local parking meant that we had convenient access to our car for a trip out of town. Close to shop for provisions. So many good places to eat around York but the cafe right next door (Belle's Bouffe) did a superb egg breakfast. The accommodation topped off a very enjoyable four-day break.
