        Close and handy to the Convention Centre

        You could do with some new carpet in the foyer

      • Older travelers

        The Aspire is an affordable hotel with a great location and a 24-hour check-in where I always feel comfortable and can enjoy all the facilities I need but still get good value for money.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Most of the staff were friendly and willing to assist in any manner possible. Some of the lights weren't working in our room. However, once this was reported to the reception, they sent a technician to immediately rectify the problem. Also we didn't know if the tv was working, and the reception gladly came to direct us on how to utilise the electronics in the room. The staff also provided advice on the appropriate and budget places to eat as well as the best time to book for a shuttle to the airport.

        The cleaning staff only work until 12:00. Thus if a person is jet-lagged and sleeps during the cleaning period, the rooms aren't really cleaned.

        The room was spacious, Great Location, Neat & Clean, Quite area.

        room was comfortable and clean, having a balcony was wonderful, that overlooked the park.

      • Couple

        Great location, right in the heart of the city near Darling Harbour but in a very quiet street so has the feel of a country hotel. Rooms are big, clean and comfortable. Surly staff though man the reception, don't expect too much help from them.

      • Single
        9.6

        Staff at reception upon arrival were very friendly. This was extremely appreciated.

        The fact you had to pay extra to use the hotels car park.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Proximity to Darling Harbour and Circular Quay

        Sinks could do with replacing. Attention to detail at desk lacking - we booked a wake-up call which we did not receive and nearly missed our bus to airport to meet family!. However, Anna was extremely efficient.

      • Couple
        7.4

        Our Standard Room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the 2 armchairs formed a nice living area. Staff is friendly and efficient. Not so expensive compared to hostels, but so much more quality for money.

        A little dusty. The shower temp was very hard to adjust. The outside would need a little renovation, but inside the rooms it's ok, so I guess it's not even a problem !

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The staff was courteous & helpful. The location of the hotel suited us well. The room was spacious & very clean.

        There was no cutlery or plates in the room, which is quite a basic requirement.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The friendly staff were very welcoming, the location was just perfect, quiet for a good night sleep and close enough to the city centre to be able to walk to attractions and restuarants,night clubs etc.

        Our one disappointment was reading that most rooms have balconies and we were unlucky enough to get one of the few that didnt have an opening window.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        Located on a nice quiet, residential street, felt very safe at night and has nice friendly cafes nearby. 10 minute or less walk from Darling Harbour. Rooms very clean and spacious.

        Building is rundown, lifts unpredicatable, room was cold and heating noisy. Buffet breakfast was not good. Not great value for money.

        The tv was old land didn't have hd channels

      • Group of friends
        6.2

        The staff were very friendly and very helpful especailly Rosy!

        Drastically needing a refurb, mould in the ceiling, basin crazed, wall decals peeling, seating sagging and tired, hmm 2 star not more!

      • Single
        9.2

        I stayed 4 nights and the room/bathroom was in an excelent state every evening Ireturned.

        My initial online booking was not in the system, causing some delay and apprehension when I checked in.
