“What a bargain and what a location”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

On your doorstep Chinatown, Casino, Fish Markets, Darling Harbour, Powerhouse Museum and The City - can not ask for a better location. Rooms are so reasonably priced, clean and comfortable, with basic, but certainly all the amenities you need. At these prices and in this location, certainly worth a visit. So check out there rates.

Good location for china town and George street. Rooms and facilities are dated and very dusty but generally clean and tidy. Initial welcome by the two women on reception was abysmal. We flew in by 9.30am after a night flight with no sleep from Bangkok. We had requested and early check in by email the week before. They replied to say they couldn't guarantee it but would try their best to accommodate. I mentioned this on check in and the woman didn't even acknowledge our request. Told us to come back at 2pm. One woman was more interested in playing with her phone than dealing with guests. No welcome to Sydney, no offer of a map. when I asked for directions to go for a coffee locally she said turn left and walk for 10 mins. Not the best start to our adventure. I must add that the rest of the staff where incredibly helpful with our requests. It's a shame those two women where there to 'welcome' us. The lifts are temperamental. The Wifi is not free, it's $5 for an hour or $10 for 24 hours and they can't guarantee access in your room, which I thought was a bit of a cheek when you have paid for the service. We had limited access in our room in the first floor.

There is a faded elegance about this place. The lifts are slow, the electronic keys fail to work, but the rooms are huge and the staff incredibly helpful, as they had to be because every time I went out they had to let me back in.

Brilliantly located behind China Town and just outside the centre of Sydney this clean comfortable well priced hotel offers everything you need as a base for trips to Sydney. Breakfast is fine, parking underneath (a must if you have a car), rooms are a good size and well maintained. Look for special priced deals (which often include breakfast and parking) on the 'Deals" sites.

Given its low cost I had some doubts about Aspire Hotel which I set aside due to its location close to where I needed to be. I needn't have worried. The common areas and room were clean, and the staff efficient and friendly. All this for $100/day near the heart of Sydney. What more could any traveller reasonably want?

Stay when attending a concert at the enterainment centre. close walking distance to everything you need.Friendly staff. Carpark bays are a little small but not bad price compared to the rest of sydney. Nice park next door, quiet neighbour hood
