Our room absolutely stank of smoking, the bathroom especially so. The smell was so strong I had to keep checking there wasn't a chain smoking jazz musician hiding in the shower. All night there is constant groaning, I'm guessing from other reviews it's from the elevators but it sounds like a dying hippo being kept in a dungeon. While this... More

I am awake way too early. The elevators in this place send a groan though my room that only a dead guy could live through. This groan happens as the elevators descend.. DO NOT allow these people to give you a room anywhere near the central elevator area. Urrrg

I went there for a conference in the nearby UTS. First, I wasted a lot of time because the name on the busines credit card was not the same as mine. Second I could not access the internet in my room. And finally, I could not get my breakfast box when I needed it. Overall the stay was pleasant, and... More

What can I say? I stayed here for a week as the Rydges I stayed out for almost a week also was booked out afterward. Found a great deal online and then extended with reception. Old building, but everything inside works. You get comfy enough beds, a clean bathroom ( though first room bathroom needed works) Reception are the best... More

My friends and I stayed at Aspire for six nights in total. The room was clean and it was in a great location. Many places were at a walking distance. The key card to our room didn't work at times, but good experience overall. The staff were very approachable, especially Teddy, who was very friendly and helpful when we were... More

The hotel is a little bit aged but not too bad. Our room was nice and spacious with one queen and a single bed. The elevator was audible from our room, sounded like a roaring dragon everytime someone used it. It got easier to ignore though. The lights need some fixing though; if you wanted to turn on the bathroom... More

We stayed there for a week could not fault the service from front counters staff and the cleaning staff the place is a bit tired looking but very clean The only fault I would say is the wifi had lots of problems with that so that's a bit hard when you are staying in touch with family

Enormous room, comfortable bed, everything you need in a hotel room. Situated in a good location, easy access to the city.Would have given 5 stars but the shower head wasn't that great. All in all I was very happy with my stay and will definitely stay again

Great location for city shopping. Walking distance to city. Good parking with cheap Sydney rates. Rooms okay. Clean. Need some paint and love. But if a bed is what you need this is a great place to stay. The reception staff are all really welcoming and friendly.
