Great location !!

We have stayed in this hotel on several occasions, and always remark that for the price, it is great value, and the position is soooooo close, or with transport to the city's many sights. Thai cafe adjoining is a bonus as is the 25 metres to Paddys Market and Chinatown.

Couldn't leave quick enough

Between the front of house staff who had attitude, and the clock roaches under the TV...I can't think of a positive.... The bathroom is huge, but it caters for the elderly. There were three beds, even though I said I was a lone traveller. The decor is poor, the room facilities are packed away in the desk drawers, the rooms have ceiling fans and the A/C unit is in the bathroom. No curtains on the windows which means the street lights outside light up the room which means closing the door to give some darkness at night when you're trying to sleep. I had booked a 2nd week at this hotel without having stayed here as there was an offer and I based my initial stay on the scores and ratings....I'll learn, if I could have cancelled the 2nd week without losing my money I would have...I was convinced after one night that this place was a regret.

sharing with cockroaches

I work away from home so chose Aarons Hotel for my 2nd stay because of an offer through the hotel website I use. One thing I learnt is a good score is relative as this place was genuinely awful. I thought the 1st week was bad and had already booked the 2nd week before I stayed for my first week. The room was the smallest one I've stayed in during my working time in Sydney. The toilet was small and separate from the shower. The windows, albeit, obscured glass was illuminated by the light outside. The actual light in the toilet also lit up the shower...but offered you no privacy as you were usually lit up to the outside. The real gutter for this place was that for both stays I shared my room with cockroaches, even after asking staff to address the issue with maybe a commonly used household product which claims it can kill cockroaches....The cleaning staff must have simply wished the bugs away. They were in the bathroom/shower, the toilet room and eventually spotted them in the bedroom.... I paid to stay there and the cockroaches got it for free. My room was cleaned and on the 2nd clean the rubbish bag was left outside my room...I thought it would be temporarily but no, it was all night as I walked over it the following morning. If I could score a zero (0) I would. I recently "cashed in" my hotel website credit and it meant I had a free 4 night stay in some hotels in Sydney, one was Aarons....I can assure you I would not stay here again if you paid me, if it was free, or it was compensation for the worst stay I've had to endure. It claims it can cater for business groups and functions....I struggle to believe this. At best this place is a big hostel with small capacity rooms...This is not a hotel.

leisure trip to sydney.

I have stayed at Aarons hotel Sydney before but this time it was an unpleasant experience. I was there for 3 nights & had NO television reception, I reported it soon as I checked into my room & was told that someone would look at it which they did, but it wasn't fixed. Day 2 did the same thing again. Day 3 alas same again but returning to my room this day found that house keeping had left my door ajar, good security! also reported this to reception only to be told oh sorry about that. Room was very grubby not cleaned very well at all, had an old window air con that was filthy & very noisy. Tea, coffee & sugar not replaced each day. On the plus side though I will say though that the linen was very clean & white & location of hotel excellent. I really think that Aarons need to lift their game a bit, it seems more like a backpackers than a hotel.

Good Location, Poor cleanliness

The staff were friendly and the location great however the cleanliness of the room was less than expected. The thinly carpeted floor had many stains and sticky spots along with what appeared to be a rubbed in strawberry top stuck in the floor. The shower curtain was mouldy and the bed, while clean, had some small stains on it... hopefully food stains. Furthermore, the shower was sometimes cold. The room size was acceptable and the bed comfy however the room and bathroom needs a good amount of love and care.

Centrally located gem

Great place to stay if you want to be in the centre of everything. Hotel staff are helpful & cheerful, & the rooms are clean & have all the basics you need. Walking distance to Paddys Market, QVB, Darling Harbour & also loads of fantastic restaurants.

One Nite Stay

Location wise Aarons Hotel Sydney is just perfect as it is just a step away from Paddy's Market and right smack in Chinatown. As we only stayed there a nite before flying off to Cairns, Queensland the next day it was a good stay. Aaron is currently undergoing renovation externally so there are a lot of scaffolding surrounding the hotel. However I think internally they have renovated the rooms. Rooms are very small n amenities are very basic but clean. However the hotel is not luggage bag friendly or disable friendly as there are lots of steps without ramp for heavy bags. But the staff are excellent and friendly. But overall a good hotel with good location for a short stay.

No redeeming features

We felt uncomfortable from the beginning. The Reception staff weren't great. Our room was terrible as we arrived and did not improve in the daylight. Hardly any daylight made it into the room due to the scaffolding outside. Our bathroom was mouldy. Our room was so bad we left early making an excuse. No refund was allowed. We stayed our last night in Sydney elsewhere. Can not recommend at all.

Sydney trip

The hotel staffs were not very friendly, a bit rude as well. However, there is one Chinese girl at the reception is very helpful and friendly. It saying that it is a non-smoking room, but the room I was staying was smell like an ashray, the area is very central, but very noisy.
