Aaron's Hotel is perfectly located in Sydney's chinatown and very close to central train station. The rooms are what you pay for however with basic rooms having only a bedroom and an ensuite. Saw a few bugs in the bathroom but not too bad. Overall I would stay here for the location and the price.

It is clean and neat, the staff are friendly and always available for assistance and advice with local knowledge and trends. A couple of blocks from the city, across the road from Chinatown and the start of Darling Harbour why wouldn't you stay there! We are a family of 5 who fitted comfortable in the room and will definately be... More

A comfortable and budget friendly hotel. The location is perfect. Being opposite Paddy's market, you can get cheap fruit for breakfast if you like. Chinatown is perfect with good, cheap food options available until very late at night. The staff at Aaron's were so helpful and did not hesitate to fulfill any of my requests. Easy and comfortable, a great... More

I stayed here with my family. There was a big group of us and we all wanted to stay together and this was one of the only hotels we could find in the location we needed. I feel it was over priced compared to hostels as this is pretty much the quality we got. Room was basic, beds were comfortable,... More

We chose this hotel because it was close to Chinatown and transport to the Opera House is easy with public transport. Not the fanciest hotel but excellent value for the money. Nothing to really dislike, although I am a bit wary of staying in the summer as the air conditioning didn't seem the greatest.

We stayed at Aarons for 2 nights - Friday and Saturday night and were very disappointed with the whole experience. Having had a lot of positive experiences here in the past, with school excursions as well as family trips, we were confident of our choice, but it has changed.

We stayed in ne of the family rooms which had a double bed and two sets of bunk beds. Seemed more like a hostel than a hotel. The bathroom was in major need of a refurb, very old and tatty. Quite a bit of noise from adjoining rooms and down the hallway. Windows in the room were very dirty and... More
