No through traffic, no honking horns, no sirens. Fresh renovations to the public areas of the hotel were still being completed which were noisy during day time 'work' hours however this would...

This hotel has a nice modern feel to it, and very friendly staff. I had to 'pick their brains' at reception several times and they were always genuinely friendly and helpful.

The Metro Aspire was a nice hotel to stay at on my recent short trip to Sydney. The hotel is situated in a nice and quiet street, and is only a short walk away from a lot of Sydney attractions. The room was very nicely presented and looked very modern. The only problem I found was the lack of balcony...
