una notte

Posted 24-Mar-2015
Pros: l'ingresso e il salone con camino
Cons: le camere
Location: vicino al centro
ho soggiornato per una notte, e all'ingresso l'hotel fa ben sperare, ma la camera è stata deludente. Bagno molto piccolo e antiquato, la porta di ingresso della camera nemmeno si chiudeva, letto troppo morbido...insomma troppo alto il prezzo per il valore della camera. In più non c'era posteggio per l'auto.

Good value hotel nice building

Posted 15-Mar-2015
Elmbank is about a ten minute walk from the center of York. It's a lovely building especially the lounge area - they even have a local cat who occasionally comes in for a warm by the fire :) If you're looking for economy accommodation (don't have delusions of grandeur for the price!) close to York you can't go wrong. The beds are comfortable and facilities good. The floor boards creak a bit and you can sometimes hear next doors too but this is to be expected of an older building. All in all a good stay!

Very pleasant hotel, close to city centre

Posted 24-Feb-2015
Pros: Overall I really liked it, it was very comfortable with a nice bar, a lovely old atrium and staircase with an open fire!
Cons: For the price of £105, we would have expected breakfast but that was £8.50 each on top, so we didn't take breakfast.
Location: It was a 15 minute walk into the city centre, or a five minute taxi/car journey.
We only stayed one night, but it was very nice. I liked our room and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We would stay here again.

Just 'ok'.

Posted 18-Jan-2015
Pros: Price; location.
Cons: Clearer information about the location of the room being outside the hotel in a separate (more recent) building. Beds are poor quality (mattresses).
Location: Apart from its obvious attractions, York is an excellent city for walking (i.e. self guided).
Got a good deal through a late booking, and it was within easy walking distance to everything we wanted to do while in York. However, I was disappointed that it is not made clear enough that the cheaper rooms are not in the hotel itself (which is a lovely old building) but in a more recent addition at the back of the main hotel. We checked in then had to drag our bags through a very long corridor with several heavy doors to go through, then through an exterior door into a service yard (hotel laundry hanging, rubbish etc); across an open courtyard in the rain; and use two keys to access the separate building and then our room.
