Keep this ticket with you and present it to our reception desk, and we will validate your parking for you. If you've purchased parking in advance on your arrival, we will validate your ticket. If you have not purchased parking in advance, we will validate your parking, and you can pay the same discounted rate at reception.

House rules for all guests:

Good to know

There's no scheduled clean of your apartment for stays of six nights or less. Washing up liquid, a sponge, disposable cloth, tea towels, dustpan and brush, bin bags, and bathroom bag sacks are provided in your apartment. Mops and floor brushes (if not already in your apartment) are available upon request. For an additional cost, we can arrange fresh bed linen, towels and cleaning supplies to be safely delivered to your door.

For stays of 7 nights or more a full cleaning service is included on the 4th day of your stay, which includes a change of bed linen, towels and a general sprucing up of the apartment. This cleaning will also occur every 7 days thereafter.

The nearest car park is ‘Q Park Barbican’ and is located behind us on Kent Street (YO10 4AH ). We offer a reduced rate of £13 per day. As you enter the car-park, press the white button on the barrier to get a paper ticket (do not use the contactless payment option as we can not offer the discount). Bring this to reception and we can validate it for you upon leaving the car park.

Yes. Our Staycafé is open 24/7 serving a buffet breakfast menu, snacks and pizzas (you can order these to go and enjoy them in your apartment), freshly ground coffee, bottled beer, draught beer, cider, wine and soft drinks. Don't forget you're also free to cook up a storm in your fully equipped kitchen (fully equipped kitchenette in studios). Simply pick up ingredients from the shop next door.

Our Paragon St apartments are located just outside York's city walls, a 5-minute walk from York city centre.
