Some rooms have a great balcony if you are facing George St. The beds are good quality, no bad backs in the morning The reception staff... More

This is our second time here at Breakfree.The open plan room is still the best for us 3. The service at the front desk has improved tremendously since our last stay. But most of all is the location and the cleanliness of the room It is very convenient and accessible to everything. The only downside is the dated facilities. The... More

Whilst the decor isn't brand new, the room has every facility needed and is still certainly better than average. The location is excellent...really close to Darling Harbour and across the road from the Capitol Theatre. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly...and went above and beyond when I was taken ill on our last day.

Spacious room for a group of people (5). The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was easy enough to find from central station. Close to most things too. Found the kitchen quite handy, and the double bathroom was a plus. Will definitely stay again.

Friendly helpful staff, good clean rooms, stayed with a family of six which was easily accommodated by arranging all to be on the same level. Good value for money considering you're in the CBD of Sydney. Wifi costs extra but you can use the the hay market hotel next door whilst enjoying the $12 steak.

Staff werent very welcoming but accomodated us when needed. Bathroom isnt up to standard but is enough. In a good location close to train stations and bus stops. Just a short... More

The room was just what we wanted. We were 4 single women and wanted 4 beds. The big treat was to find we also had 2 bathrooms. Great location near Chinatown, the railway, and buses. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will be back.

Stayed at the Breakfree on George for a single night with my partner. Location was very central close to great restraunts, Darling Harbour and Central Train Station. Rooms were spacious and clean. Bathrooms were a bit dated but acceptable for the price. Parking was non existent. There is a carpark across the road charging a casual rate of $7 per... More
