We booked this hotel online before ever leaving the States. It was to be our last stay in Sydney after a month's long holiday all over Aussie and Bali. We knew we just wanted to relax and take it easy as we prepared for the long trip home to LA. The hotel is a 10 minute or less walk from... More

Recently purchased a Lion King Package with Wotif- The self rated 4 star breakfree on George was disappointing. Had to wait for a room to be ready and then were sent to a studio on the 10th floor which was shoebox sized. Despite being so high, traffic noise kept us awake.

Stayed for just one night and found the hotel hard to find but definitely worth the money. The location was perfect and with the free green and white number 555 buses hurtling past the front entrance every 15 minutes taking you up and down George Street and all the way to Circular Quay, made getting around so easy. The room... More

Breakfree on George is perfectly situated in the Haymarket - Sydney, about 40 paces away from the Capitol Theatre. The hotel has a terrific parking deal with the Capitol Carpark - just across the road which reduces the usual pricely overnight stay down to $30 for Breakfree guests. The room at Breakfree was terrific and when we wanted to change... More

The hotel was recommended by our tour agent. I travelled with my wife, daughters, father, brother and sisters 9 of us for holiday. We stayed in 4 rooms at different levels for a week (2/6 – 7/6/2014). The location is excellent as most of the attractions in the city such as QVB, Westfield, Darling Harbour, Chinatown and Paddy Market are... More

Note a few mixed reviews on here, but we thought it was great. Hugely convenient location and nice room and amenities. We got a good deal on Grabone (NZ's home grown Groupon) so at the price we were well impressed. Staff helpful, check-in hassle free. Requests prior to check in were met, no dramas! Room was spacious and clean. Why... More

Breakfree on George is in a great location. The room was a good size, includes little food preparation area. Generally needs a paint job and cleanup. For the price expected a little more polish. The bath was scratched and a bit grubby looking. Give the In-House breakfast a miss. Very poor quality and quantity. Ordinary coffee. Lots of great choices... More

Approximately 20 minute walk to Sydney Harbor and 10 minute walk to Darling Harbor. Directly across the intersection from the Capitol Theater. Close to many restaurants (local, fine dining, fast food) and nestled between China Town and Thai Town. Across the street from a large market. Hotel was clean. Room had a kitchenette.
