A Review Of Metro Aspire Hotel Sydney
I've been in Sydney, Australia for the last 4 nights staying at Metro Aspire Hotel. I've never been to Sydney before so in this post I'll be giving some tips on where to stay in addition to reviewing the hotel! Without further Adieu:
One of the main reasons we chose to stay here was because the rooms have two king beds. Many of you who have traveled internationally know it can be a struggle to find even two queens beds as international standard is twin/double. So having two large beds was very nice for our group of four. The room was fairly nice. A good size with ambient lighting and a smart TV with Netflix, YouTube, etc.
The bathroom was on the smaller size but the hotel was good at providing toiletries and many towels. There was also a nice little sitting area and an outdoor terrace.
Hotel Staff & Check-In:
The staff were on the friendly side, although not the most helpful staff I've ran into. They wren't very helpful when we ran into an issue but did handle it nicely. Check-In took less than two minutes so that was very nice and easy.
Food & Drink:
The hotel has a very cool restaurant with a waterfall running over the ceiling and main wall. It was very impressive and one of the cooler hotel restaurants I've seen. Although I didn't eat at the hotel, the menu looked good and they also offered room service and breakfast. In addition to this, there was also a fully-stocked bar in the lobby.
This hotel has some cool parts to it, but I probably wouldn't stay here again. The location wasn't fantastic and there are far more interesting parts of Sydney to stay in. This is where my tips for where to stay come in! My personal favorite parts of Sydney were CBD, Darling Harbour, and the general Opera House area. I would try to stay in one of those areas if possible, CBD being in-between both and a good general location for exploring the city.
