    Convenient location, comfortable 2-bedroom apartment, nice decor, good layout, unobtrusive room servicing, convenient but expensive parking.

    Traffic noise. (Room faced Harbour Bridge traffic.)

    The York by Swiss-Belhotel was fantastic. The staff were friendly and the room was spacious, clean & modern. Will stay with them again if I return to Sydney.

    It was very spacious and met all the requirements for my family. The staff were very helpful and a few went out of their way to be helpful in providing service.

    Nice apartment, with a good view, walking distance to the top two attractions-the bridge and opera house in Melbourne, and good restaraunts.

    Despite telling them on arrival that my booking was changed from three nights to two, my card was still blocked for three nights payment. Still not corrected 48 hours later. I have to wait for mastercard for the correction. Not good enough.

    The hotel is very central and as we had a 2 bedroom,apartment great to relax and unwind with our friends between functions. Being able to park and not use the car at all was great.

    The shower, needs upgrading.

    The staff were incrfedibly helpful and friendly. Booking and checking out were really easy.

    Would have liked free wi-fi in the unit. Most modern hotels are offering this now.

    Its proximity to transport, shopping, groceries & restaurants. I shared the accomodation with two friends and we had plenty of room

    The lounge cover needed attention and needed to be cleaned underneath.

    Fabulous

    Lovely big studio suite with comfortable twin beds. Well equipped kitchenette. Wonderful walk-in shower and lots of space in the bathroom. Lovely spa bath outside along with pool. Lovely soft white fluffy towels. Easily accessible to tourist areas of Sydney. Helpful staff.

    Unfortunately the sauna did not work and beds were superficially made.

    Very good

    The location between Circular Quay and Darling Harbour is fantastic. We have stayed before and like the central location to see the parts of Sydney that we want. It is ideally suited for families with smaller children.

    The price has risen considerably since our last stay. This coupled with the strong Australian Dollar against the Pound and Euro is making staying almost unaffordable.

    Fabulous

    Location excellent. We stayed in rooms designated "not refurbished" and although there were minor maintenance issues - taps stiff, minor leak in sink waste, we were very pleased with the space, layout, cleanliness. Reception staff always cheerful and "sunny" and very helpful with local information. Very prompt attention to repair request.

    Superb

    Proximity to Circular Quay, spaciousness and decor of apartment, having the apartment serviced so well every day and excellent service from the hotel staff.

    Even though we were situated on the 20th floor there was still a lot of noise coming through from the street below which would be eliminated with double glazing of the windows and sliding doors. The gym was far too small for the demand and. Having the one toilet situated in the bathroom caused some inconvenience to the 4 adults staying in our apartment. We thought the cost of the 2-bedroom, one bathroom, apartment we stayed in to be a bit overpriced.

    Very good

    Staff were very good. The apartment was a good size and clean. Balcony good but sliding door hard to open and needs new rollers. I couldnt open door by myself - husband had to open it. Brought to staff attention. Good internet connection and usage Didnt use pool. Close walking proximity to harbour and attractions and city shops.

    Bed fairly good but had to put a blanket on top of mattress as too hard. Needed a topper but blanket was ok. In the internet ads we were led to believe there was a cafe/restaurant in hotel but had to go down the street for food. Ads deceived us and should be more open about the food available nearby and not in hotel. Eating in hotel is different from going out into the weather to another venue. Bathroom was the worst room.We booked the hotel because the shower was not in bath and easy access & close proximity to harbour. The bathroom was tired and needed grouting and cleaning. Did request proper clean of shower but it needed a bleach overnight to get it clean.Had to use hand towel to stand on. Not happy. I keep my shower at home cleaner than this. Balcony door needed new rollers. Hard to open. Unable to open by myself.

    Exclusive

    Very comfortable and roomy. Loved having a balcony and ability to have a window open and not use the a/c - the only hotel where this was possible of all the hotels we stayed in during our trip to Australia and Hongkong. We were also very gratelful for the washing and drying machines after 3 weeks on the road.

    More information from the reception staff on what to do in 3 days in Sydney?
