I was wondering if I was in the same hotel as the previous reviews, perhaps it was just my room. There were broken tiles in the entry of my room, with sharp edges that could easily cut your foot if you were bare foot. The bathroom light would not turn off and the light switch was broken, the washing machine/dryer...

We stayed here as a group of four for five nights. The location is second to none, right next to Wynard station, and a five minute walk to both Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. We also had a lovely view from our 18th floor room. The pool area is great and also includes a sauna and hot. Great to spend...

We had a one bedroom apartment on the 8th floor, with a balcony . The apartment was adequate and spacious . The bedroom had air conditioning and Tv. The bed and pillows a little on the hard side. Nice big bathroom with washing machine and dryer and bathtub. We used the car park for The York, good idea to ring...

We rented (hired) 2 bedroom suite for a week. The room was out of this world. Lots of space, excellent beds, wonder views, and close to everything. It is within walking distance of opera, harbor cruises, and anything you could want to eat.

We stayed for a week in a one bedroom apartment at The York and was very impressed. Friendly and helpful staff and a well appointed and clean apartment. The location is fantastic being so close to the city centre and Circular Quay. We spent a lot of time on the harbour because of the short walk to the quay. Also...

This hotel is quite old and dowdy. It is in need of a makeover. The yellow bathroom was straight out of the 70's and the room setup was awkward at best. There is also no room service which when travelling on business, is not ideal when you get back to your room at 9.30pm The reception staff were pleasant and...

Four of us stayed for a three day weekend ... I have to say we were all impressed with how nice the two bed/two bath apartment was. We were on the 6th floor with harbour glimpses from the enormous balcony ... even better. I booked a few months in advance direct with the hotel and it paid off in a...

Best location right near Wynyard Station with access to the airports. Walking distance to the Opera House and Circular Quay. Everything you need - better than a hotel - washer and dryer in room.\ Staff were extremely helpful.

The York is in the prime location for the CBD and the Rocks. Parking is a bit expensive compared to other hotels in this area but is easy to access. Most attractions are a short stroll away and Wynyard station is just a two minute walk. We found the desk service to be excellent, personable and professional. The apartment we...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
