Tranquil, but central. Leafy escape offers easy access to city life

FAMILIES and leisure travellers visiting Sydney and seeking quality accommodation close to the city but away from its hustle and bustle, will find what they are looking for at Aspire Hotel Sydney.

Tucked away in a quiet, tree-lined street in Ultimo, just minutes away from the Sydney CBD, the three-and-a-half star hotel is in the perfect location for leisure, just a short stroll to Darling Harbour, the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre and Sydney Entertainment Centre.

Aspire Hotel Sydney offers 96 spacious standard and deluxe guest rooms, each with its own ensuite with full bath, while some rooms have excellent city views and private open-air balconies looking onto green parkland or the city beyond.

Modern conveniences are standard in all rooms, with internet data ports and ‘smart bars’, which charge any incidentals directly to your hotel account. Each room is furnished to accommodate a minimum of three people, making the hotel attractive to families seeking a peaceful respite and park-like surrounds within walking distance of the city.

A short stroll to nearby Wentworth Park where active families or health conscious couples can run, cycle or enjoy a range of sporting activities at the local sports centre add to the convenience of Aspire Hotel Sydney. The hotel is also perfectly located near the prestigious tertiary educational Institutions of UTS Sydney and Ultimo TAFE, making it the ideal overnight stopover for students and their relatives. For shopping convenience, the recently renovated Broadway Shopping Centre offers everything you need for a stay away from home, from food to fashion, supermarkets and department stores.

Guests can book at Aspire Hotel Sydney and Metro Hotels properties by calling the toll-free Central Reservations line on 1800 004-321. Alternatively bookings can be made online at the new-look website,
