The Space

Newly refurbished room in a converted Icecream Factory, bang in the centre of York.
Its a few minutes walk from the railway station, right amongst the shops, bars, clubs and restaurants, in fact a short walk from most of York's attractions.

Your room is on the 1st floor with a king sized bed, wardrobe and comfy chair. On the same floor is a shared bathroom and livingroom. There is unlimited wifi.

Located within York city walls in a quiet street, our home was once a 1940's built Italian ice cream factory which we converted into a unique three-bed house. It's an interesting and spacious home, with a contemporary feel and we've tried to retain some of the special character of the original building.

We are 1.9 miles from York University, 1 mile from St Johns University, 1.5 miles to York Racecourse and only 10 minutes walk to York's Minster.

Fresh bed linen and towels are provided.

  • A very nice and quiet place located centrally in York. Everything really is in walking distance. Mike was friendly and helpful, I'd stay again anytime. Thanks, Mike!

  • Great, spacious room, comfortable and clean. Nice bathroom. No breakfast provided but a fully equipped kitchen is available downstairs. The location was perfect, right in the center of the city, a few minutes from bars and restaurants, small supermarket at the corner - and still very quiet, in a small street.
    We didn't have much interaction with Mike as we spent most of our time outside but Mike was a nice host, friendly and flexible.
    A good stay!

  • Mike is a cool guy with a huge place perfect walking distance to al the attractions York has to offer. He doesn't advertise this, but he owns a bar in town as well. It opened 5 weeks ago and was already busy when we checked it out. We were only in york for 2 days, but could have stayed for much longer. It's a compact city so you can walk anywhere you want to go. The bathroom is nice and big as well. We met another couple briefly when we were checking out. i think they were staying in the room upstairs. He has a nice little kitchen setup on the ground floor if you want to save $$$ and make your own breakfast. Totally worth staying here.

  • We enjoyed staying with Mike very much. The accommodations were very nice and filled with light. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was lovely. It was very well situated and only a five minute walk to get over the bridge and into town. Mike is a quiet person but was there when we arrived and was available for questions, directions, etc. during our stay. There was a downstairs kitchen at our disposal.

    We would recommend staying with Mike. It was a very pleasant experience.

    Everything went according to plan and we were very happy with this listing.

  • My first time in an Airbnb, and Mike has set the bar very high! His one-time Ice Cream Factory lives on as a shining example of intelligent re-design within a contemporary working home.
    As well as the ideal situation near the river, close to the city centre and QUIET, ground floor parking below is also on offer.

  • Mike was extremely helpful, and the room was very nice. The location is perfect for exploring the city.

  • Location is perfect no more than 5 mins walk from the old town of York. Bed is very spacious and clean, so is the bathroom. I was really pleased with the accommodation!

  • Ich habe sehr gute Erfahrungen gemacht. Mike war ein ausgezeichneter Gastgeber. Sowohl das Zimmer als auch das ganze Gebäude ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Küche, die zur Verfügung steht ist auch sehr praktisch. Das Haus liegt an idealer Lage, ist sehr ruhig und hat gutes Licht. Man erreicht alles in York zu Fuss in kürzester Zeit. Supermarkt etc. ist gleich um die Ecke. Alles sehr sauber und angenehm. Sehr empfehlenswert.

  • Mike's place was perfect. Great location and spacious. If you are lucky enough to meet his parents (passing through when I visited), you're in for a delightful treat. Wonderful host(s), private, safe (single woman traveling) and was a nice retreat after a full day of walking/being a tourist. Guests have their own kitchen area too, which was an added bonus. Thanks Mike for a great stay.

  • The room and bed is very big and cosy.
    It seems like staying in the hotel.
    The shared bathroom is quite clean.

    Mike was quite busy, and we always back in very late night.
    Therefore, we didnt have a chance to talk with him much.
    However, he always provide everything we need.

    Just for guest, the room is on the second floor and an be access by stair only, so beware if you carry on the big luggage.

    Overall, I would suggest everyone to stay here if you come to York.

I've lived at the ice cream factory for 5 years, slowly getting the place into shape. I'm relaxed and easy going. Pop in and say hi, or keep yourselves to yourselves, I don’t mind. I am self employed and create websites, I use a downstairs room as an office so I'm available all day if you have a question.
