Spending half of my working life in Travelodges, it was nice to stay in a quality hotel. Nice decor, good service and everything you need from a hotel. Nicely situated for our visit to The Grand Opera House just 5 minutes walk. This also has to be one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had in a long time....

The location of the hotel is great, close to the city centre. The reception desk was also very friendly and helpful. The room itself is very spacious and comfortable, however the only thing I would warn you are the walls are quite thin. Unfortunately I was allocated with a room with the adjoining door and could hear everything from next...

I booked this hotel as a surprise for my husbands birthday, after a trip to the theatre. The hotel was a short walk to the theatre & to the city centre. Very clean & comfy. Would recommend this lovely hotel to anyone wanting to walk into the city.

Lovely 1st time stay at this hotel. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Breakfast was buffet style and staff very attentive. Great base to explore York at a very reasonable price. Would have been a 5 rating if they had onsite parking but they did have reserved spaces in a local carpark at an additional cost of £10, however it was...

Dear Steve Thank you for your review, and I'm delighted to see that you enjoyed your first stay at Hotel 53. Thanks for your feedback about our parking - unfortunately our on-site car park was closed down last month so we are currently trialling other options, so we appreciate your comments in helping us to make future improvements.

Great location. Easy parking for small charge. Clean rooms recently painted and comfortable beds. Welcome staff and lovely breakfast. We ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was superb. Such a shame there were only a few tables taken although it was a Monday evening. Maybe the only personal complaint was quite noisy at night and early morning...

Clean, modern, pleasant venue and location. All the staff were very helpful and nothing appeared to be too much trouble. We visited for Valentines and will definitely stay at this hotel again in this great city.

I would have given this a higher rating however, family room 415 ensured non of my family slept a wink until 5.30 am. There is apparently a boiler above the room, this kicked in around midnight and didn't stop until 5.30. The noise was horrendous it sounded like the roof was going to come through, no answer when I rang...

Dear Hayley Thank you for your review, and I am sorry to see that the noise issues from our upstairs boilers affected your first night with us. Whilst the boilers are situated above 415, the noise has never been a problem before and they are generally more or less silent. We have investigated this unusual amount of noise since reading...

We were a little disappointed by our room this time round as it was a connecting room and not really appropriate for couples. Very little sound proofing! Staff we're helpful and friendly that we dealt with and we did get the situation sorted in the end.

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel 53. The rooms are very nice and have a feeling of luxury about them. The staff were always pleasant and chatty. The store room is very useful if you need to store your bags after checking out. The placement of the hotel is a 5/10 minute walk to many attractions in the centre...
