Really enjoyed staying here for a couple of nights. Very comfortable, clean, great location. Will definitely stay here again. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. There was a kitchen, fully equipped, but we didn't use this facility. The bathroom was spacious. All the staff were really friendly.

Although apartments are a bit dated, would definitely recommend the York apartments. Location is ideal- close to The Rocks, Circular Quay, Opera House, bridge etc. Units are clean, spacious and very good for families.

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 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.

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.
