Recent guest reviews

We have stayed here on several occasion & never let you down, and since its refurbishment its even better. Rooms are very nice bathrooms are great, room size is good. Service is very good always buys so you need to book early.

A huge thumbs up for the fantastic customer service from their reservations team to the front office staff! They were so helpful and accomodating with each and every query I had. The surprise upgrade to the Star Suite was a fabulous surprise. The room was immaculate and well appointed. Absolutely loved the ensuite bathroom with it's luxe tub and shower and even the heated toilet seat!! The bed was huge!! It felt like I'd jumped into a cloud once I went to bed! Lounge and dining area was very chic and well decorated! And the view of the harbour was amazing! Thanks to the Astral team for making our stay perfect!!

Stayed in a recently renovated room in the Residence section of the hotel I am amazed at the different room types that are to be found here. Great view of the harbour and city from the balcony. They have done a fantastic job with the renovations. It felt and smelt like a brand new hotel and the amenities are first class. Really appreciated the upgrade and feel that they reward regular customers like us for our loyalty. The only disappointment was that the bath was not a spa bath. But great stay anyway ensuring our return again.

The Suites in the Astral Tower hotel are amazing. The comfort of the room, the amenities, the views out onto the harbour are excellent. The size of the hotel room is great with distinct living, bedroom and bathroom areas (of which there are two!). The two TV's are handy when each person wants to view something different. A couple of negatives to me that change my rating from 5 stars to 4 stars though: * The door between two hotel rooms lets in a lot of sound and the noisy couple in the room next door on my second night here was quite audible. Luckily there is a nice solid door the closes between the bedroom and living room. * Minor I know, but I love a dark room to sleep in, the blockout blinds don't close all the way to the bottom which allows light leakage at the bottom. Also the light switches all have a very bright blue LED which don't turn off, so they bathe the room in blue light.

Recently stayed for 5 nights at the Astral Tower and Residences at the Star Casino, Sydney. Check in was swift, professional and courteous. On entering our room we were immediately impressed, room was spacious, very clean, totally renovated and modern and also included a balcony. The large bed and furnishings were very comfortable and modern. The bathroom was also very nice and included a rain shower. Blinds in room were fantastic keeping the room in darkness so we could get a good sleep after staying out till the early hours. Room was also well sound proofed, we hardly heard any noise from outside our room. The room was cleaned and bed made up to a high standard by the house keeping staff each day. The room was also fully air conditioned with individual control so we could adjust temperature to suit. The free wifi worked very well in our room. Toiletries provided and towels etc were also of high quality. Definitely recommend spoiling yourself and staying here.

I rang reservations on a Tuesday to make a booking, I couldn't do it online because I needed company details and different rooms booked on different nights. The phone booking system wasn't working on Tuesday, so the person on the phone took my details and said they would call me back on Wednesday. I did not receive a phone call on Wednesday. I called on Thursday, the person on the phone didn't understand the company name I wanted to book it under and asked me to send an email. I sent an email and received an automated response that someone would contact me within 24 hours. No one contacted me within 24 hours. I rang on Friday afternoon, and managed to make the booking, once I received the booking confirmation on email it was not in the company name and the wrong room type was booked. I called back again, they changed the company name but when I received the confirmation they had not changed the room type. I called back again, the person said they changed the room, however I still haven't received a confirmation email with the right room.

complete luxury, great service and a great view. They gave us an upgrade on the first time we went. It was luxury they also had a pool, casino and a buffet. It was great because it had a chocolate fountain!!! and a ice cream making Machine!!! the service was great every one in the hotel was nice. We had a great time it was awesome!!!

We had a mid week break here at the end of June. We were greeted by a very happy and friendly staff member called Jessica. To our surprise we were given an upgrade, to one of the most beautiful suits we have stayed in. A thank you to the wonderful, happy, friendly staff, especially Britannia. Breakfast each day in the Harvest Buffet was great value, with many healthy options to choose from, and again efficient pleasant staff. The show at the Lyric was well worth seeing. Thanks again Astral and Star City. We have stayed in many hotels around the world, couldn't top Astral.

We had one night booked there before our travel home, and since they were doing construction in one end we got upgraded to a suite overlooking the harbor. Amazing room, one of the best ones I've ever stayed in!

This hotel was chosen for us, as we were part of an organised group, And we certainly weren't disappointed. Reception staff were friendly and polite, as were the lobby cafe staff. Our room was a level of luxury I hadn't experienced before. Spacious, modern, power operated blinds etc. Just stunning. And the opulence continued into the bathroom. Being located within the Star City Casino precinct, restaurants and food outlets abound. Bars and entertainment venues etc. It would be a perfect evening to stay here, see whatever production is currently on and not have to worry about getting home at midnight.
