Would definitely stay again! Ideal if your wanting to be close to the centre of York



Absolutely fabulous!! Everything you could wish for. Just like photos.

Kitchen + laundry. Located in quiet area just 10 mins walk to City Walls / Old Town.

Even during the recent 2-day UK heatwave..place was relatively (Website hidden by Airbnb) fabulous accommodation to retreat to during the heat of the days.

If come back to York, would definitely stay here again!!

Lovely Place to stay!



Comfortable, modern space. Walking distance to town centre. Bed comfortable too. Bathroom and kitchen area was excellent.
Having to submit a copy of my id give my d.o.b. and then take a selfie and send it to an strange sounding insurance company (which then trys to sell you insurance for breakages etc !)associated with the company that lets the apparment No parking, even though spaces in the rear car park and on the street.. need council permit for street and rear car space for apparment has obviously been sold. Needs a thick curtain to cover front door and associated glass at front which doesn't give much privacy from path and street. Wooden slats on blinds full of dust and hoover is so full I would say it's never been emptied since new.which considering covid etc is not good. Oven needs an instruction manual.



The flat was clean and in a great location. The only down side was the blind falling of but this was fixed. Would definitely stay again



Great location and very clean



Flat was modern and clean but had several issues, including lack of hot water and a broken bathroom fan (bathroom constantly wet). I hope that these issues have been resolved because this has the potential to be a really nice AirBnb.



Airbnb - Great location within walkable distance to all the main attractions, food and drink. Apartment itself is really nice and has everything you need for a short stay in terms of facilities. A bit of dust in the apartment and there was some dirt + the dishwasher which hadn’t been run from the last people. Considering the cleaning fee is so high this was a surprising negative. Some small extras would make the stay better such as kitchen roll, fresh milk in the fridge and coffee pods for the machine (tea, instant coffee and sachet milk were provided). The walls/ceilings are quite thin and we were woken in the mornings at around 6 when people left the apartment complex and we are not particularly light sleepers. As pointed out in previous reviews the automated spam messages are a little annoying! Overall, suited what we needed for the trip but would probably not stay again.



A great place to stay. 10/10. Very clean and modern. Very close to city centre and close to the car park. A perfect place to stay for the weekend with your other half.



Great location, good amenities



Quiet location but still only 5 minutes walk into the centre of York.
Modern apartment with everything you could need for a stay away.
No parking space so we had to park in the nearest pay and display.



Automated and/or impersonal communication from hosts, inaccuracies in listings which have not been fixed after bringing to their attention and hidden cleaning expectations despite the cleaning fee charged at time of booking means I would not book with this host again in future or recommend to others.

After booking I received six messages/text messages from the host directly and their verification partners requesting I verified myself which I had already done manually, via an email address provided to me by the host.
I contacted them to confirm this had been done and I didn't need to go through the process again, which was confirmed - yet I continued to receive this messages right up until check in - which I found spammy and irritating.

I also contacted the hosts to clarify some discrepancies between the listing and booking confirmation:

Car Parking is suggested to be available, as the listing states cars would need to be inspected by staff but was told, post booking, that there isn't any parking, you can park for 10 mins to unload and are given the address of the nearest paying car park.

Check In/Check Out times varied between 3pm/4pm and 10am/11am between listing and booking confirmation.
I had to request the correct times twice before receiving them and the listing has not yet been updated after highlighting this.

Before check in you receive a 'welcome guide' with a link to find the property, however, this link defaults to an incorrect address and we had to call on the day of check in to request a new link with the actual location.

Finally - on the evening before check out we received a message requesting we wipe down all surfaces with antibacterial wipes, remove bins from the property and wash all plates/cutlery, or put them through the dishwasher - none of which was included in the initial listing, booking confirmations or documents printed within the property and we had already been charged a £50 cleaning fee at the time of booking.

I am disgruntled to have had a negative experience as the property itself was nice (although a little dusty) and a good location.



Short walk from centre. Not a spec of dust anywhere. Modern, living space with good size bedroom and bathroom. Kitchen supplied with all the equipment someone would need. Easy access. Will definitely be back. Well worth the stay. Host communicated regularly and was there if we needed them. Thanks you so much for the great place to stay.



Perfect location, really easy to walk to the centre, well worth the extra money the apartment is clean, modern and comfy



Really good location. 5 minutes walk to get inside the city walls. Beautiful place and exceptionally clean, had everything we needed. Hosts were very communicative and helpful.
Parking is the only issue we had it’s quite tricky to get to if it’s your first time in York - all the streets have one way systems and are dead ends with bollards in between roads. All residential areas are permit holders only and the car park nearby is quite pricey.



Great location



Brand new house






Great place to stay! Very clean and well located.
No issues.



Great location, well equipped apartment and you couldn't ask for a better location.



Very good

Superb apartment, with all modern facilities, in a quiet location, just a few minutes walk from York minster. There is a supermarket/off licence nearby, which was handy for a few essentials. Bed was so comfy, slept really well. Will definitely be going again, and would highly recommended.



great location, really clean and the bed is super comfy with quality bed linen. The kitchen is really well equipped.

Stayed here for 2 nights & wasn’t disappointed. The apartment is done to a really high specification throughout & made it a home from home. Location wise you couldn’t ask for better. There’s parking a minute away and you’re on the shambles in 5 minutes. Will definitely be booking here again when I’m back visiting this fantastic city!
