Good to know before you book

If there is anything you need during your stay, we are available 24 hours a day to help and if you have specific requirements please contact us prior to booking/arrival so we can let you know what is possible or suggest alternatives.

Check in is from 3pm on the day of arrival. Check out is up until 11am on the day of departure.

Everything in York is within about a 10 minute walk of The Parisi Hotel and there are excellent rail links from most parts of the country so there is no need to bring your car. If you are coming by car during the festive season, we provide complimentary vouchers for parking off site in a nearby car park for the duration of your stay (400 metres away, max vehicle height 1.98m). As standard, we offer 30% discounted parking at selected car park. We have a drop off/pick area on site, to the right of the hotel, so you can pull up to drop off bags/check in and then we will direct you to the off site car park.

We describe ourselves as a boutique hotel to indicate that we are not a typical corporate hotel with an 'off the peg' design - there are lots of pictures of the rooms and public areas on our gallery pages - please do have a browse!

Space is at a premium within York's city walls and being a historic building, the rooms come in different shapes and sizes and are all comfortable and while none are particularly huge they compare well with others in the city centre. Please do look at the pictures in the gallery and the description about the bedrooms and ask if you have any preferences or requests and our team will do their best to help.

We serve a delicious breakfast cooked to order. We do not currently have a restaurant, bar or licence to supply alcohol, but there are many lovely places to eat and drink very nearby, or you are very welcome to bring your own. Our team will always be happy to make recommendations based on your preferences and to assist with making bookings.

There is sometimes a two-night minimum stay requirement (for instance at weekends or during bank or school holidays). These are sometimes lifted nearer the time if we still have availability and we maintain a waiting list of people who would like to stay for just one night - please do let us know if you would like to join this.


While we try to minimise the rules, being a small city centre hotel, we do have to have some unwaivable policies in order to try to protect the environment we have created for the pleasure of those staying with us. We want you to thoroughly enjoy your stay and so ask you to consider the things below to make sure we will be suitable for you.

Car parking - Festive season 2019 - free car parking for one vehicle off site (public car park) is included in the rate. There is no on-site car parking available. The included parking runs from the time you arrive until the same time on the day of departure (24 hour increments). As standard, we offer 30% discounted parking at selected car park. Please note the car parks have height restriction barriers at 1.98 m which may make them unsuitable for larger vans/cars with roof-boxes etc. We can recommend suitable car parks for larger vehicles but unfortunately the cost of these will not be included in the rate or at discounted rate.

Groups - Given the small size and physical setup of the building and in order to try to maintain the kind of service and atmosphere we aim to provide, we have made the decision not to accept any kind of group bookings of more than four people travelling together (even if booked individually or under different names). With regret, this policy is not waivable and bookings that exceed this will be cancelled. We are happy to suggest alternative hotels that do accept parties of more than 4 people.

Babies and children - Unfortunately we are not suitable for babies and children under the age of eight and the maximum occupancy of all our rooms is two people. We're sorry but there is no facility for extra beds/bedding to be placed in the rooms and unfortunately we do not have any family rooms or interconnecting rooms.

Animals/pets - We are not suitable for animals other than assistance dogs.

Accessibility - There are four steps to access the building and we're afraid we do not have a lift/elevator but we are very happy to help with bags. All bedrooms appart from 'the Grand' are on the first floor, up a flight of 20 steps with a handrail to one side. Please ask for further details if you have any particular needs.

Comfort - We do not have air conditioning but every room is equipped with a desk fan and we are happy to provide a range of bedding options on request. While we are in a relatively quiet area of the city centre, the majority of our windows are the original single-paned Victorian glass and we cannot guarantee it will be quiet – please ask if you are concerned about noise and we will be happy to discuss the options.

Payments - We take credit or debit card details to guarantee bookings and in case of cancellation. We may take payment from these details once the booking has become non-refundable.

Cancellations - as a small hotel, we unfortunately find it difficult to resell rooms at the last minute and so have to stick firmly to our cancellation policy, without exception. For cancellation within two days of the date of stay the whole stay will be chargeable, e.g. if you are staying on a Sunday you would need to cancel before midnight on Thursday to avoid the cancellation charges (please note this is not the same as 48 hours before you are due to arrive). Cancellation before this is free of charge. We strongly advise you to take out insurance in case of cancellation as should something come up at the last minute which means you are unable to travel we will not be able to waive the charge and rooms will not be transferable to a different date.

If you have any questions about our suitability for your stay please do ask and our friendly team will be happy to advise to the best of their ability.
