We have two bedrooms, one bathroom and an open plan kitchen/living area (featuring stone work surfaces) which opens on to a balcony overlooking the river Foss and the Merchant Adventurers gardens. We have under-floor heating, and a blu ray player (which is internet connected and able to use BBC iPlayer etc) and wi-fi. As of October 2016 we have upgraded the sofas to a larger and more comfortable arrangement. Therefore the photo of the sitting area is now a little out of date, but hopefully in a good way!

Parking is provided by means of a York City parking pass, which also allows parking in any York City Car park, with the nearest one being Castle car park, which is about 3 minutes walk from the front door.

Smoking is not allowed anywhere, including the balcony where there is an air intake for the the ventilation system.

Location description from owner

The Yorkshire region

York is one of the UK's top internal tourist destinations, and in recent years its become more and more popular. With cobbled streets and historical museums mixed in with modern bars, restaurants and shopping there is something for everyone! There are over 400 pubs in the town, and it is basically the perfect city break destination.

Central York

Merchants Place is - as the reviews show - in a central location, about 5 minutes walk from the city centre. It is at the heart of a newly re-developed area of the town and surrounded by smart coffee shops, bars and also traditional pubs. The flat itself is slightly hidden away on the second floor of a modern apartment building, and we have found it to be peaceful and convenient, affording the ability to pop back for lunch on the balcony before getting back out to explore...but don't take our word for it, read the reviews from our guests to get a feel for the experience of others, which are in the main all 5 star!

“A brilliant apartment.”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

We stayed in this fantastic apartment for our daughters wedding. The apartment is right in the centre of York. The car parking permit was really useful. The apartment was spotlessly clean and is equipped with everything you could possibly need. We would definitely recommend it.

Owner's reply: Thanks guys!

“Perfect location”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2015

Perfect location to explore the wonderful city. Only a few minutes to walk to all the museums and the minster. There are also nice shops, cafes and pubs. The flat is well equipped, modern and very comfortible.

Owner's reply: Thanks guys.

“Perfect accommodation minutes from the centre of York”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2015

Stayed with my Fiancee for 5 nights, the accommodation is just as described, with wonderful balcony overlooking the river Foss with views across to Minster. Met on arrival and shown around the flat, easy access via lift. There are some wonderful restaurants on Fossgate / Walmgate just around the corner

“Too good to be true, but it was!”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2015

We stayed in this posh and comfy apartment for a whole week plus. I didn't want to leave! The location is unbelievably convenient to everything inside the city wall, and right next to a bus terminus for anything you need that is outside. With two grocery stores within sight, the option to cook for yourself is easy (though you won't want to miss the fabulous restaurants in York entirely). We managed a big, wonderful,family Easter Dinner with supplies from the nearby open air market, Marks & Spencer, and the two-skips-out-the-door Tesco. The hosts and staff were warm, welcoming, and responsive. I cannot imagine a better place to stay for a trip to York!

“Stunning flat in convenient location”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2015

The flat is modern, stylish and well presented. The kitchen has all utensils and homeware required for a self-catered break. Convenient location for restaurants, pubs and bars. Balcony with lovely view over the river. Thoughtful touches such as visitors book with recommendations of local sites and shops to visit.

“Smart and comfortable flat in a great location”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2015

My husband and I and our three-year-old spent a lovely few days in this flat right in the centre of York. It's beautifully decorated and has everything a guest could need. In spite of the flat's central location, we heard no noise at night and we enjoyed a great view of the Merchant Adventurers' Hall and the River Foss. At a different time of year it would have been lovely to sit on the balcony. It was nice to be met by the housekeeper when we first arrived, and the gift of bread and jam from a local deli made us feel especially welcome. Having to keep our car on the nearby Castle car park was not a problem, as a permit is provided and, since York is a compact city, best explored on foot, we just left it in the same spot for the duration of our stay. All in all, this flat was a great combination of luxurious and child-friendly, so should suit anyone. We definitely hope to return!

“Anniversary weekend”

Reviewed 6 Feb 2015

My husband and I spent a long weekend at 8 Merchants place, the apartment is in a great location over looking the river Foss, and right near an excellent choice of restaurants, bars, the main shopping centre and tourist attractions. The apartment is of a very high standard and beautifully presented throughout, although we had seen photos we were still wowed when we entered the apartment. we have stayed in York a couple of times before and stayed at high end Hotels but have to say staying in the apartment was far better as it was hotel quality but made for a much more relaxing break as no pressure to get up and ready for breakfast, so we were able to move at our own pace. We will defiantly be going back.

“Beautiful apartment in a beautiful city”

Reviewed 17 Dec 2014

I stayed at this apartment for the weekend to visit the Christmas markets. With this being my first visit to York I found the apartment centrally located, easy to find, a great base to explore from and easy to find our way back! Very clean, welcoming and comfortable accommodation with comprehensive guides to the city for visiting folk with regards to dining and shopping. A personal touch of milk in the fridge upon arrival (very appreciated). Would definitely without hesitation recommend this apartment to others and already planning our next trip

“Stunning apartment in a great location”

Reviewed 14 Dec 2014

Decorated to such a high spec and right in the centre of town, you won't regret staying here. It has all the comforts you would need, they even provide towels and hand soap, as well as a fresh pint of milk for that well-needed first cuppa when you get off the train! There is underfloor heating, blankets for snuggling, really comfy beds, a power shower, in fact everything we needed was there - even a clothes airer to dry our towels on. The view from the balcony is just lovely and I can imagine it is even more stunning during the summer months. We stayed here on a girls weekend and found the apartment to be a great location to get to the many wonderful bars and restaurants the city offers. Within the apartment you'll find a leaflet for Spring, a coffee shop right around the corner which is AMAZING - you must try the blueberry brioche! They even offer a discount for staying at the apartment. If you are looking for a place to stay in York I couldn't recommend this highly enough.

“Excellent Central Apartment”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2014

Modern, clean apartment in the centre of York City. The Cathedral, museum, shops, restaurants & cafés are all within walking distance so it’s the perfect place to explore. The apartment comes with a parking permit and there is a local car park just minutes’ walk away. Spacious open planned living with a fully equipped kitchen really is a home from home, we ate at the apartment on a few occasions and were never without the tools we needed to cook a full meal. The lounge has two seated sofa's, TV and Blue ray player with WIFI. The apartment has underfloor heating and a balcony with beautiful views of the river. The bathroom has a shower over bath, towel heater and towels. Two double bedrooms, one with views of the river, both have fitted wardrobes for lots of storage space. Despite being an apartment I found it to be very quiet and was never disturbed by noise from the neighbours. Highly recommended for a visit to York, it’s a beautiful apartment and we will definitely be back.
