The hotel is in a great location - close to transport, China Town and the Market. Room, although small very clean, comfortable beds. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend hotel and would definitely stay there again.

The location is quite convenient, there are bus stops just downstairs and within 5 mins walk to the central station. however, i had to say the interiors for the room is super old. And there is no cabinet for the clothes. The hotel provide free wifi which is great.

This hotel is in a great location just a short walk from China town, Central train station and a little bit longer to Darling Harbour. With the age of the hotel we never expected it to be immaculate but there were paint chips and an unfortunate sticky mark on the wall in the bathroom that was not cleaned for the... More

BookED this at the last minute as I had a function to go to and needed a place to shower and sleep, I found this easily available. The hotel itself is nice, heritage setting in contemporary styling, the maze of corridors made it sometimes difficult to remember where my room was but I found my way easily enough. The room... More

Dear ToddJHammond, Thank you for your recent review of your recent stay with us. We are pleased you found the hotel nice and enjoyed the heritage features of the building. Set back in the 1800s the building (once a post office) has been eclectically converted to a modest hotel. We do understand that sometimes the ‘maze’ of corridors can make... More

Pensione Hotel is in a good location, within walking distance to the Capitol Theatre, the light rail & Central Railway Station. The hotel’s entrance on George Street was a bit of a surprise as its open front doors to their old building takes you a couple of steps inside to a lift (no foyer). Reception is located on 1st floor... More

Dear Teerarat, Thank you for your 4 Star review of Pensione Sydney. We love the charm of the building too – chic and interesting! The lift from George Street certainly contributes to the architecture of the building and with the modernized lift car – it is a perfect fusion of new and old.

Good service, parking across the road. 200 metres to Capitol theatre, short walk to Central station, free bus out front of building. Old post office converted to hotel, appears no two rooms are the same. Well located if you need to be up the central end of town.
