Old and noisy

Posted Mar 4, 2015
Pros: Staff were courteous and helpful.
Cons: Curtains and noise insulation.
Location: Powerhouse Museum - excellent. Paddys Market (Market City) and Chinatown. Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre. Close to Central Station.
It was difficult sleeping, as all noise from adjoining rooms and corridor carried into our room.

Very handy place to stay.

Posted Jan 20, 2015
Pros: Location, parking and staff.
Cons: Rooms are a bit tired but clean and comfortable.
Location: For us friends and family but close to "everything".
A return trip every 12 months or so. Suits us well close to city, inner eastern and western suburbs and not too expensive.

I was stuck for somewhere to stay in Sydney, most hotels were booked, found a room at the Aspire. Enjoyed the night, decent room, quiet location.

Hotel charged $50 for each additional child. Roof leaks had rotted the wood in the closet. It was in repaired. Foldaway bed had unwashed yellow stain on sheets. The worn out sofa cushions had crusty stains from someone's dirty romp. We were thoroughly grossed out. I complained. They verified my claims and returned the extra kid charges. This place should be $80/ night or less. My worst hotel stay so far.
