We stayed here for 6 nights. Patricia on reception was very helpful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived early in the morning, but we were able to leave our luggage and go out. Our room was clean and comfortable with facilities to cook. We bought supplies for breakfast and had that in our room. There is no restaurant in... More

Located in China Town, it is located in a very noisy area of the city. I had to wait several hours for my room to be ready as I arrived early from an international flight. The room was old, the carpet was dirty, and my room view was a great big white wall. Nothing like the pictures they show on... More

We stayed three nights at Breakfree, and there were a lot of pluses. The staff were friendly and helpful, and did whatever they could to make a pleasant experience. The location was on the edge of Chinatown, so at times language issues caused problems, even (would you believe it at a local McDonald's restaurant). Despite showing signs of age, on... More

We stayed here for 4 weeks in December and over new year. It is a good base as close to station and the free George Street bus stops just out side. Also if you walk out the back door, you are just a short walk from Darling Harbour, a great location for food, walking, ferrys and fireworks. Down side is... More

We usually stay in the major hotels but having kids has meant apartment style accommodation is more practical. The breakfree on George fitted all our needs and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Highly recommended.

Stayed for one night whilst in Sydney on business. Room clean and comfortable and staff very friendly and helpful indeed. The hotel is situated in the busy Chinatown restaurant area of Sydney and the area is bustly and quite noisy. It is also quite a way from the bridge and opera house. That said though, my room was comfy, the... More

Stayed on the Mardi Gras weekend with friends. We have a number of requests for our frocks. The hotel came to our rescue and gave us the best and prompt delivery of whatever we ask. Thank you very much Breakfree and your staff for an excellent stay. See you next year.

Breakfree on George is stipuated at Sydney's Chinatown, beside Paddy's market. Its location already makes it very convenient to go places fast. Places of interest like Darling Harbour and Sydney Harbour Bridge are actually 20 to 30 minutes walk on foot. There are so many food joints around the hotel, with cafes side by side which open way beyond 4.30pm.... More

My wife & I stayed here - it's in the heart of Chinatown (we're not Chinese) but please don't let that deter you. It's on George St., which is pretty much the main North/South street to get you up to the harbour. The room itself wasn't huge but had everything we needed (including a small fridge and private bathroom). There... More
