I had a great stay at the Metro Aspire in Sydney! The rooms are reasonably well priced especially if booked through the website. The location is absolutely perfect! It was great that we were able to just park the car at the hotel and walk or take public transport everywhere. The hotel is a short walk from Darling Harbour and heaps of restaurants and we even walked into the heart of the city. Its also close to a light rail that we took to Circular Quay. The staff at the hotel were very accommodating and kind. The only downside to the hotel was that the rooms need soundproofing, you can often hear your neighbours or people in the hallway when in your rooms. And the bathroom was a bit weird as it didn't have a fan and would make everything inside moist. But besides that the room was great, clean and the beds super comfy. I would definitely stay here again I'm back in Sydney!

Was ok for one night! Not crazy about the place. Paper thin walls, could hear the guests in the next room snoring their heads off all night! Location was a bit random sort of hidden in a one way street blocked by a bunch of trees. On our arrival and upon checking in, although the receptionist was friendly, he failed to even mention the offer that was noted in our booking confirmation, which reads: “Free room upgrade* to an Executive Room! (*subject to availability on arrival). Includes coffee pod machine, bathrobes and slippers, bottled water and high speed WiFi. Guaranteed early check in (1pm) and late check out (12pm) 25% off food & drink at nearby Palace Hotel”. I am certain there were “executive rooms” available, but none of it was mentioned to us on arrival and of course we didn’t bring it up ourselves because well, why should we? Anyway, we wouldn’t stay here again unfortunately.
