astra apartments are ideally located for the airport and travel to the city
The apartment is basic but has everything you need inside and locally
It's quiet at night apart from a pub 10 mins walk but during the day lots going on
Train to the CBD is 5 mins walk and 2 stops on the train
We had lovely parrots on the balcony and bed was comfy
It was cleaned once a week but that was all we needed and they let themselves on
Only criticism was a slight fishy smell from the nearby restaurant which came into the flat if you left the door open and expensive car parking which wasn't included in the charge
Stayed here in December 2012 for a 2 week period during a project go live.
In summary, the apartment is ok with all the facilities you need and very spacious and quiet.
Parking your car was a bit of a scary thing as I have never driven into a lift before. Great idea though and very safe.
My only critisism would be my appartment could have done with a deep clean, especially on the carpet and the smell from the reception area due to the rotting food in the bins in the parking lot took your breath away on occasions.
However, this is not the Fault of Astra as this is a shared appartment block.
The pool was not in use. I hope it gets fixed soon.
Mike is fantastic.
Would recommend to anyone.
One of the best locations in Sydney - right opposite the Parramatta Westfield Mall, railway station and bus stop. I stayed in a one bedroom apartment, which was new, clean and spacious. Mike was fantastic, helpful and knowledgeable. Will return for sure.
