A perfect location, just a few minutes' walk from Darling Harbour, the Rocks, and Circular Quay. Two decent Japanese restaurants next door, though not much other restaurant possibilities in the shopping district. However, a few good options at Darling Harbour. The York had great amenities, including an area to shower and change if you arrive by flight before your room is ready. Concierge was very helpful. The rooms were huge with a washer & dryer and large bathroom, decent sized bedroom, big living room and dining room, and fully stocked kitchen. Nice views of the city. Great value for the price.

I flew to Adelaide for my sister's wedding and accompanied the bride and groom on honeymoon..along with my sister's niece! First stop was The York for a few days and despite not advising them that we were on honeymoon we were upgraded to the Penthouse on the 28th floor.

The Suite was huge, extremely comfortable and very well equipped. We ate in on a few evenings and the views from both terraces were stunning.

The staff were polite and helpful at all times..even when I asked for help with Internet connection for the umpteenth time!

Great central location; walking distance to both Sydney and Darling Harbours, the shopping centres and many good restaurants.

Room Tip: The higher the better ;-)

I love staying at The York - ideal self-catering appartments in the centre of Sydney. The Appartments are all very comfortable, well kitted out and the staff are always very friendly and helpful. The pool deck and spa pool are great to relax and unwind after a day of work or play.
My favorite place to stay in Sydney

Room Tip: Some of the rooms get a water view, need to be high up.

Stayed at the York for 1 week in Oct.
The location was excellent right in the middle of the CBD close to the train station, Woolies and Liquerland(LOL)
great city Views, people have complained about the street noise but at the end of the day if you book a hotel right in the middle of the city what do you expect? we certainly were not bothered any noise.
The appartment was spacious, clean and had everything you need for your stay. the Housekeeping were brilliant and so polite.
If we stay in Sydney again I would definately choose the York.

Our group of two adult couples stayed for 5 nights in one of the refurbished deluxe 2-bedroom apartments on the 20th floor. Although you don't get much in the way of views from this hotel the rooms are spacious enough and have a modern feel to them and all that you need in a self-contained style of accommodation. The only thing that we found to be a negative was that you only get one toilet in the apartment and it is in the bathroom which can be inconvenient for 4 adults. Every day of our stay the room was well serviced by mid-afternoon and on the couple of occasions that we needed to call for more teabags and the like they were delivered promptly.

This hotel is situated within an easy 10 minute stroll to Circular Quay and there are plenty of convenience stores and places to eat in the general vicinity. The little Japanese restaurant next door had great food at a great price.

We found the in-house gym to be rather small and ended up not using it after our first visit.

It is not a cheap hotel to stay at but we think it is well worth the cost and would not hesitate to stay here again in the future or recommend it to family and friends.

Spent one night here with friends from UK, didn't spend too much time in room as busy sightseeing, but rooms were very nice, 1006 recently refurbished with nice city view and large balcony, staff were lovely, had to pay extra for parking but quite reasonable for city parking, concierge were very friendly and happy to assist where needed...being locals I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We found level 10 was good, had a one bedroom....friends on same level had studio which was in need...
