Stayed here for a night to watch Vivid and the hotel did not disappoint us. We had an early check in and a spacious one bedroom apartment. The concierge desk helped to point to the direction we want to watch the night show. The lady at the desk was very helpful and accommodating. Will surely stay here again next year.

We booked 1 night. The room was clean, bathroom had mould all around the bath/shower. Location was good close to patty's market, china town and 20 minute walk to opera house. All up a good value hotel for a quick visit but certainly budget and basic.

I would definitely be back. The customer service was amazing. Sandeep was very friendly and helpful on the front desk. We arrived early, and our room wasn't ready, but that was fine because it gave us a chance to explore Sydney. We were offered to phone call when the room was ready though, I thought that was a nice touch.... More

The BreakFree On George was excellent value for money . With a large bedroom with all the usual amenities including bath and shower. It was close to China Town so plenty of cheap eating places close by. The dearer restaurants were in Darling Harbour and meals were reasonably priced. It was quite safe to walk about be it day or...

We stayed here for 3 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. There was a separate bedroom and then 2 singles in the living area and 2 bathrooms. Plenty of space and privacy. Room was well set out and beds were really comfortable. Close to Capitol Theatre, Paddys Market and walking distance to Pitt Street, Darling Harbour etc.

Reception staff were always welcoming, friendly and helpful. The "unseen" workers kept our room nice and clean. Our room was just what we wanted with good space, big windows with a view, couch, table etc. A free to use computer behind reception was helpful.

Stayed a night at this hotel which was underwhelming in that the room was very scruffy with a cheap fit out and the traffic noise was terribly loud. The in room service took over an hour and was of a very poor standard. One highlight was the friendly staff. Avoid.
