Even by Sydney standards, this costs too much. Pro: Good location, bed was comfortable enough. Con: Room furnishings were old and carpeting quite worn. No frills. A little noisy sometimes. The WiFi is $10/hour, only works in the lobby (they don't guarantee a good signal in rooms, which is to say there is none at all), and you need to... More

The decor of my room was completely original....including, I suspect, the bed as it was so saggy and uncomfortable. The sofa bed in my room was so marked that I was not game to sit on it....it may well have been clean but it just didn't look good. The lifts are so old that they all groan deeply every time... More

Very cheap for Sydney, and in a good location only a 5 minute walk to the heart of Darling Harbour. Visuals of the hotel are out-dated but somewhat comfortable at the same time. Great for the budget traveller who wants close access to the sights of Sydney CBD/Darling Harbour.

As a native Sydneysider, I have no idea why people want to visit my home town. It is priced like Zurich, Oslo or Tokyo, and I don't really see the return for your money. You will get luxury service in Bangkok or KL for the price of a bare-bones-service hotel in Sydney. Having said that, this review is based on... More

We stayed at the Aspire for 5 nights and found it to be fairly near to most amenities - about 10 mins walk to Central Station and Darling Harbour, main bus route at the bottom of the road. Our room was rather 'tired' but everything worked and the room was serviced daily. The room was large which was one of... More

We booked three nights in that hotel, just based on pretty good price. Sydney can be pretty expensive and that hotel had a pretty good rate. Me and my wife we were very pleasantly surprised. Yes hotel is a little aged and elevators are slow. And that's all ! Hotel has a great location, walking distance to the harbor, walking... More

Stayed the nights of 4 and 5 February 2014 at the Aspire Hotel. Room was comfortable with double and single beds and a balcony. Bulwara Road is quiet and a 10-minute walk from the central train station. Shops and restaurants are also close. Room valued at A$148 per night. Breakfast available for an additional $15.

We stayed here when we went to see P!NK. It was a lovely clean room. Old but still quiet lovely setup. Showers and beds were great. Lovely stay, well positioned. I loved the character in this room, it had a really great feel about it. And its really close to Darling Harbor, a comfortable walk away without the high price!
