Stay here for 2 nights for my brothers birthday. The room was spacious and also the bathroom, only thing that I saw that didn't look too good was the carpet, it seemed to be a bit dirty and many stains on it but apart from that the room was good. The service was good friendly staff. One thing i didn't like was the house keeping, they didn't seem to pay attention to detail, the beds were made up but it looked a bit shabby and they did not restock the toilet roll. The location for this hotel is great only a few minutes walk to Darling Harbour and around 15 minutes walk to Town Hall station and main shopping area.

Grabbed a room at the last minute with a sale site. The room was new, clean, and very well set out. Great location to explore the city, with lightrail travelling underneath. Expected a little more information either from the check in desk or inroom about what was what. Got lost several times in complex due to poor signage, but staff were friendly and helped point us in the right direction.
Would definately stay there again [ but only at sale price, not worth any more]

Room Tip: If you want a view, don't stay in the Pyrmont Rooms. Only looks over back yards & units.

Booked a 5 Star Mystery and was surprised to get Astral Residence. Have never stayed here before, and was very pleased.
The room (15th floor) was amazing. Huge King bed, Molton brown toiletries! Fab! Was especially great as we were traveling sans kids.
Will definitely be back!!

We travelled all over australia in may and loved every property we stayed in the astral tower was a shock when we came in as overseas visitors ,the staFf was very rude at the reception , we paid for breakfast for all the 3 days but nobody guided us to where it was laid ..we got in at 10.20 one morning and wreer told that its already been picked up!! On talking to the concierge he also dint know where to send us !! We were so upset that we dint bother with bf the next two days !! We were at shangrila cairns before this and their staff was the bestest mnost friendly staff on the palnet !! Astral tower nEeds to become more user friendly !! Nobody guides u where to go as it is a big property!! The taps in the Room arE primitive !! After such a high at gold coast q1 and sharila cairns ...I was let down in astral tower !!!

My wife and I stayed here on Sunday night to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Straight up we got a complimentary upgrade on our room. The room was amazing, spacious, classy and clean. The newly renovated casino looks great and the accommodation was conveniently located to king street wharf for dinner and breakfast the next morning. Overall very happy, thanks Star.

My friend booked a two bedroom apartment for my Hen's night at the Astral Residences. The hotel has pretty poor service. The staff at the desk are not very helpful. Example: No one chose to tell us about which lift to take to our room, we accidentally went up the lifts to the Astral Towers. No one really explained the parking situation (there was a gas leak and we could not use the valet parking).

Aside from their questionable customer service skills, The Astral Residences is a very nice apartment hotel. The corridors of the hotel looks retro, but the rooms are very modern and spacious.

Our room was on the 16th floor. The bedrooms were very spacious and clean. The ensuite had a television and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was clean. The other bedroom was a decent size too. The kitchen was great, there were all the kitchen necessities.

The room also had a nice balcony too. The view was quite spectacular. The room also had laundry facilities too.

Overall good hotel.

Room Tip: Request a quiet room

I booked this as a mystery hotel, and wasn't disappointed. The place is HUGE, and it buzzes all day with it being a casino, even to get to the restaurant you have to go past gaming tables and slot machines. The buffet breakfast was included, and was brilliant, the choice was fabulous, food to tickle all tastebuds. The evening buffet too was great and varied.
One crib was that we had to pay for WiFi, and it wasn't particularly cheap. But apart from that, the location was good, a short walk from Darling Harbour, the Monorail and a bus stop where the hop-on-hop-off bus stopped.

Room Tip: We were just allocated a room, i.e. no choice, other than double, but it was very nice
