I stayed here the other day and didnt mind it. The only bad thing was having to park at the Novotel about 200 meters away, which means lugging your baggage through the street, in the rain too... Other than the parking though it was good. 24hr reception was handy as well.

Aarons is by no means the high end of town but it is very comfortable, clean and very good value, with excellent location next to China town. When I travel to Sydney I spend 90% of my day doing things and just want a clean comfortable room. Don't expect a $600 a night hotel from Aarons but it is very... More

I read some negative comments about the hotel but I thought I would try it anyways. I am glad to say that rumours were very wrong. My husband and I got a deal of $174 for 2 nights in a standard double room. Pretty good compare other deals. The service was really good and we even got information about things... More

This hotel is well sub-standard for the rates they are asking. Although the location is pretty good there is nothing else going for it. The rooms are pokey small and old. Air-conditioning is through a window mounted home unit which is noisy. There is a noisy fan on the roof, which fits well with the very noisy exhaust fan in... More

If you need to stay in Sydney for a few nights and don't have a lot of cash to spend, this hotel is basic, the beds were new and very comfortable, they do get school students but the night I was there it was quiet. This may be because I asked for a quiet room? Shower room and toilets are... More

I booked my trip for my partner for his birthday. The travel agent advised me it was a good hotel in a good location.

The staff we dealt with were charming and friendly and the bed was clean and comfortable, but !!! The website didn't mention that the building is surrounded by scaffolding and that work on the exterior carried on all week. The public areas presented much better than our room though, but even there the vacuum cleaner didn't get to the edge... More
