We didn't expect a lot from this hotel as it was cheap but I was so surprised. It's lovely! So spacious & has everything you need! I couldn't believe how clean & modern it was too. Would highly recommend - the location is amazing & wifi was good too. Thank you!

I stayed here for a one night business trip and was pleased with the accommodation. The Apartment was very large and provided all the services I needed including a good desk to do work. Whilst the Apartment was a little dated and possible in need of an upgrade, I cant fault the cleanliness and provision of towels and amenities. For...

We wanted to catch up with our Sydney friends before embarking on a south pathetic cruise (error intended) and chose the York for its proximity to Darling Harbour and our favourite restaurants. I have to say the lobby and common areas looked very tired, but our apartment on the 16th floor was clean and comfortable with all the facilities we...

Location is extremely convenient, regardless of the destination. With public transport just minutes walk away, and a couple minutes walk to George street, it does make the day more productive. I am pleased to read your review and to hear of your great experience at The York apartments. Looking forward to have you again with us

The hotel was fabulous. It was very roomy. We were on the 22nd floor, had a terrific view of the city. An obstructed view of the harbor. There were 4 adults traveling. We found the York on Google and found the location as exactly where we wanted. There was construction going on between the York and the harbor so it...

Great apartments in a great location for cruisers. Walking distance to the Overseas Passenger Terminal. We stayed in a fully equipped apartment, seperate bedroom, kitchen, big bathroom with a concealed laundry. Glimpses of the harbour from the large balcony. Would stay here again on our next visit to Sydney

I know that the York is renovating rooms and that is the excuse given for worn furniture and less-than ideal conditions mentioned in other reviews, but why can't the cleaning staff at least spot clean the carpeting? The furniture and fixtures in our unit looked good - but the carpet told a different story. It was not worn at all,...

There was three of us and we were given a very large suite with sleeping for two in the bedroom and one in the living room. Each room had its own wall-mounted a/c unit. A roomy covered balcony was accessible from both rooms, although the traffic noise was very loud outside, even on the 14th floor, so I doubt one...

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.
