This location makes it so easy to get to and from the Rail Station, walk the Wall, go to the Theater, walk to the Minster, or run to the grocery store. We felt surrounded by the historical significance of this city, but the flat itself was clean, modern, and comfortable. The dining area was very tight and the small bathroom had no place to hang a towel. But these were minor problems we dealt with for the overall enjoyment of our stay.
This home is a true gem. Everything is new and lovely. Plenty of room and closet space. Very quiet in the evenings. Very fast communication with the owners.
It's close enough to the main York attractions that we were able to walk to them (though I'll admit we are a walking family). Groceries, shops, a butcher, and an amazing bakery are a quarter mile away.
We wish we had booked for more than three nights.
