Our room was very spacious with a lounge/bedroom and kitchen. Comfortable bed with lots of pillows to choose from. 10 minute walk down to the rocks and right around the corner from the railway station. Very quiet with not much traffic noise but our friends stayed on the 14th floor and their room was quite noisy. Staff very helpful and...

Spacious 2 bedroom apartment was great as my husband and daughter joined me on the trip. Couple of minor cosmetic items that could do with some attention and touch ups ( paint and cushion cover) but overall we were extremely happy and comfortable. We would definitely return to this hotel if we return to Sydney

The Best Position in Sydney. A few minutes walk to The Rocks Area. A few minutes walk to Circular Quay and the Harbour. A few minutes walk to the Major Department Stores. Very close to Wynyard Train Station. The rooms are more Apartment Style rather than Hotel, so a bit more room. The Hotel is not 5 star but very...

Clean, comfortable, good location. Wynyard train station walking distance away with direct link to airport. Walking distance to the Rocks and main shopping areas. Staff pleasant and helpful. Nothing too much trouble. Hotel perhaps dated but clean.

It's Sydney, so maybe you can't expect too much when you're paying around £100/night to be near the harbour. But it's not *that* near the harbour, and the fact is the room was just very average. It was large, for sure, but had not seemingly been renovated in many many years. I wouldn't go back unless I could have some...

Fantastic location close to northern end of CBD and cafes with decent Melbourne style coffee (head to Nook) on Clarence a block south)!! Spacious, light and modern. Great for business or pleasure. Tip- don't eat breakfast at Travelodge next door, eat at Nook. Avoid voucher and packet/tinned food! Good value for heart of CBD.

This is my second stay at The York in Sydney. Very centrally located in the CBD. Walking distance to everything. Beautifully presented rooms, friendly, professional and helpful staff. I think this will always be my go to accommodation when I visit.

Stayed with family of four for two nights. We had a very large two bedroom apartment with full kitchen, tidy etc.. Service and location were both very good. Great pool. I think our apartment was un-refurbished, parts were a little dated. Would certainly stay again.

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.
