I couldn't switch rooms on my first night but managed to do so on the second. Hotel didn't charge extra for it. This is my second stay at the... More

Breakfree at george is centrally located at the heart of Sydney. Accesible to all kinds of transportations.Just 25 minutes from Sydney Airport. The 555 bus which is afree trip bus is just around the corner. The room was larger compared to an average hotel. The service athe front desk was excellent despite its busy condition. Will definitely come back again.

Located in China town, near the Capitol Theatre and 10 minute walk to CBD or Darling Harbour. 5 minute walk to cinemas or Central Station. Good staff, clean rooms, a little dated but very good value (although we did get a special rate). Small kitchenette and utensils are useful.
