Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for the first 3 days of our 4 week honeymoon. It has a full kitchen and laundry in the apts. it's very close to everything, the rocks, the opera house, the ferry terminal, restaurants, lots of pubs and coffee shops. We enjoyed it as our first stop and would recommend it to friends.

First impression, dull and the staff were bland.
The apartment looked good in the photo gallery but in reality was tired and worn and in need of care.
We had an issue with our bathroom having what looked like fruit fly coming from the sink so we informed staff . We did get a response however it did not help the issue.
It was lovely to have bathrobes and toiletries supplied which were stocked up daily.
The kitchen had amply provisions but the tap dripped and the inside of the cupboards smelt stale.
Loved the balcony which is a good size and the location is within walking distance to the Rocks, Circular Quay and Wynyard Railway Station.
Overall, this was an expensive stay and wouldn't give it a four star rating.
Perplexed Trip Advisor does!

I had a whirlwind 24 hours to spend in Sydney, not nearly enough! The York was clean, comfortable, spacious and in a great location. I was able to easily walk to/from The York from the Wynyard Train station where the Airport Link train stopped. I strolled into the Rocks for a beer and dinner after my arrival and the next morning I was able to walk to the Opera House and other Sydney landmarks. When I return to Sydney I'll want to stay at The York!

Whenever we travel to Sydney from the Central Coast we stay at The York. Great location. Friendly helpful staff. However why oh why are the lounges in each room we have stayed in so uncomfortable? Love the balcony and the spaciousness. Very clean. We love the kitchen to store your drinks and lovely snack food from David Jones food hall that is a must for us. Good quality coffee is a bonus.
I had a complaint last time and found the staff concerned and felt listened to.

Where do i start,( rooms where large yes only good thing.) We travelled as a family of 12 had 4 rooms, of cause not on the same floor. We booked what we thought were the refurbished rooms not the case but you pay the price. Serviced daily well only half a job, no rubbished removed for 2 days, no toiletries replaced, no biscuits, only milk to have with coffee you had to buy, paper on floor when we got there was still there when we left. Something wrong with a TV in every room. We stayed Friday-Monday maybe good to stay during the week for business but not for a family holiday, we where told we could get breakfast next door, not open on weekends (not happy) Check the dates of the stock in fridge out of date beer and open packets of chips half eaten. I am sure there is better places to stay in Sydney.

Stayed here for days. Nice hotel, helpful staff, clean and the apartment was spacious. WIFI was reasonably priced compared to Melbourne hotel. But WIFI was very slow and we could not have more than one device on it at a time. Which was very inconvenient. Close to the Rocks and easy to locate from other parts of Sydney. For breakfast you had to go to the Travel lodge next door. Their full breakfast at $25 pp. Was terrible. Under cooked sausages and running scrambled eggs.

Room Tip: Don't eat breakfast at the Travel Lodge

Convenient CBD location. Very large rooms with useful kitchen and laundry facilities. Be aware that the hotel is apparently built directly on top of the underground railway line so there is some train noise from early in the morning (about 4.45am).
