Location, Location, Location: Superb!

Pros: Efficient staff
Cons: Dining facilities
Location: Location - superb!
The Hotel is Ok. Staff very helpful in giving us access to our room at 9.30am. No complaints at all...but is all about the excellent central location and nearby facilities. We walked to Darling Harbour, Paddy's Market, Chinatown... buses, light rail and central station nearby. Will certainly stay there next time I am on holiday.

Cheap and Clean

Posted Aug 30, 2014
Pros: The price and the size of the room.
Cons: I would like the shower nozzle to have more than 6 crooked spurts of water coming out of it.
Location: Close to Darling Harbour and Central Station.
Where else in the heart of Sydney could you find a place as cheap? I only needed a room for a quick overnight stay and found the Aspire to be excellent for that. Ok the place may be a little tired looking but my room was immaculate and large with a balcony as a bonus. The street was quiet and I had a great sleep in a comfortable bed. Eve though I prefer to stay in Surry Hills normally I would definitely consider booking here again if the price remains the same.

all is good except for wifi and heat

Posted Jul 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Everything is good, the staff are very helpful and friendly, room is clean, location is very close to major scene spots. Yet the room temperature is a bit cold and somehow the heat doesn't work. Wifi is only available in the lobby.

Clean tidy and position excellent to the City

Posted Jun 27, 2014
Staff always helpful and friendly. Room always presented well. I love the position of the Hotel to the City and other facilities. Suprisingly being so close to the City the motel is quiet. Love staying here a real gem.

Very good hotel overall

Posted May 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Aspire hotel was very good overall, with clean rooms/entry and helpful staff. It is located very close to the Darling Harbor, at maximum a five-minute walk with a path that negates most of the streets and traffic. Staff were very helpful, pointing out shopping and sights to see when we checked in earlier than planned, and even stored our luggage for us! And the surrounding neighborhood seems rather safe, we were walking around at ten thirty without any problems. I don't know whether it is just because I am from smaller towns and our hotels are different, but I found that the lack of DVD player or other entertainment was disappointing. I found I became rather bored once I was tired of walking! Otherwise a great experience :)
