Best places to stay in York
Where is the best place to stay in York? In my list of what I think are the best accommodation in York I offer you a luxury, mid range and budget option but this is only a very small selection of excellent hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs in York.
Luxury Hotel in York
I visited this hotel for afternoon tea only as unfortunately it’s a bit out of my budget to spend the night but it looked amazing.
The hotel opened in 1878 and has recently gone through a refurbishment to give it a classic look. I loved the décor and especially the grandness of the staircase.
The coffee room where we had our afternoon tea had lovely views of the York Minster. The food was delicious and good quality and the service was excellent. You feel a bit like royalty being in this grand hotel.
It’s also quite impressive from the outside, being in a five story building which was originally built to accommodate aristocracy if the north. Originally costing 14 shillings per night which would be great if it cost this now but its increased abit.
The location is great being next to the train station and in walking distance to all the attractions of York. This hotel is by the city walls which look spectacular lit up at night.
The hotel has 167 rooms 4 of which are fully accessible (2 x twins 2x doubles)
Room rates vary between £160 – £230 per night depending on date and room type
Mid-Range Hotel in York
Best Western Monkbar Hotel
St Maurice’s Road York North Yorkshire YO31 7JA
I was hosted by the Monkbar Hotel during my visit to York in a superior king room. The rooms are a great size and has all the facilities you would expect from a mid range hotel.
I liked the little touch of a bag of sweets and a note with our names on saying welcome. It doesn’t take a lot to impress me but sweets and chocolates will always work.
The fully refurbished Hotel is at the very heart of the historic and vibrant city of York, offering a contemporary boutique four-star hotel. The hotel is near to the Monkbar gate within easy walking distance to the city.
The hotel has recently undergone a £3 million refurbishment, transforming it into a 4star from a 3star. There are 125 stunning bedrooms and The Yorkshire bar and grill restaurant. Or you can have room service.
Room rates vary from £99 – £210 per night depending on dates and room type

Budget Hostel in York
Micklegate House, 88-90 Micklegate, York YO1 6JX
I don’t stay in hostels but I saw a review about this and it looks amazing. I walked past and the 1752 townhouse looks so grand from the outside. The décor is pink which is what appeals to me and I’m definitely going to look into staying in one of these hostels, although I will have to have a private room.
