Good Location, thats about it

Literally, 5 minute walk from the beginning of Darling Harbor and Paddy’s Market. Rooms were ok but very old and it had a dungy feeling to it. Be prepared to pay for everything and everything is expensive. If you can find a hotel about the same price somewhere close, I suggest you take it. I would not recommend, unless you could not afford anything else in the area.

Great Location

We stayed at the Aspire in Dec. 2010 for 2, pre-cruise nights. This hotel is a 5 minute walk to Paddy's Market and to a monorail station. It is within walking distance of Darling Harbour. The Aspire does not have free WIFI but, McDonalds, that does offer free wireless access is a short walk away across from Paddy's Market. The Aspire front desk personnel were very accomodating and polite. The room had a fridge.

excellent location for the price

We stayed 3 nights in Sydney and this hotel was excellent to explore the city, beaches and Blue mountain(just take an easy train). The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was large and well equipped, bed made but not change bed sheet daily. Overall, the hotel is in an excellent location with low cost. Minutes away from interesting areas, and 15 minutes from Central Station.

Nice visit - tough to drive into

We stayed for a walk-around and relieve jet-lag and the area was easy to walk.

Great location & affordable

The hotel is in an excellent location. Minutes away from interesting areas, and 10 minutes from Central Station, the hub of the transportation system. The hotel is very clean. The staff could be a little more efficient: they frequently forgot to give wake-up calls, for example. However, that was a minor point compared to the positives of the location and the price.

excellent value for the price

We stayed 5 nights in Sydney and this hotel was an excellent base to explore the city and beaches. It is close to a metro station. It is a 12 minute walk to Darwin harbour. Dining,imax,ferry,aquarium,wildlife world,maritime and powerhouse museum,chinese garden of friendship,paddy's market are all in walking distance.We used the ferry,metro,train,tram,bus,taxi for all other Sydney sights. It is a wonderful city to visit. The hotel has also long term residents. Bus tours wil pick you up from here. The airport shuttle is $12 aus,enjoy we did.

Good Location

The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was large and well equipped but the bathroom was poorly cleaned. The doors to the rooms creaked and squeaked when people went in or out. The sheets and towels were decent. It is within walking distance to Paddy's Market, and Darling Harbour.
