5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Pensione Hotel is situated in a position in George Street that gives guests access to a large area in central Sydney. Most can walk to Darling Harbour, Queen Victoria Building and World Square. There are a wide variety of eating places for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. I will return and I recommend it to the traveller.

If you come in from the airport by train it might be quicker to get off at Central Station instead of going all the way around to Town Hall. The hotel is very conveniently located on George St. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel - take 555 Green Bus for FREE down to Circular Quay which will... More

First off I will say that we were extremely lucky that some guests hadn't shown up the night before because we were able to check in very early (our flight landed at 5.30am) and it was hugely helpful to be able to shower and change before heading out to explore Sydney. What I didn't like was being asked to give... More

Hotel is located in the centre of China town. Our room was a box room which was very small, but it was okay for the duration of our time in Sydney. The bathroom was double the size of the bedroom. The room was clean, however, there was some mold on the curtains but I'm just being picky. There is a... More

Our room was clean and made daily, however the 'shoebox' room we were given with a double bed was too small for a couple to stay in with two bags. It was the only disappointing part to an otherwise great weekend in Sydney.

The whole experience was comfortable and I felt welcome by the staff. I must say the hiring of the staff was well done as both Ali and Florent proved. Polite, helpful and a pleasure to have met them. Well done HR. Brian Crawford-Greene

Location is great. Staff were excellent. The Guest lounge is a lovely addition. Rooms are tiny and we tried 3 different rooms during our 4 night stay. Heating/cooling system in all 3 rooms didn't work properly. If you could get a special rate for this hotel it would be worth it. However we paid over $200a night and it was... More

My review on this hotel will not be favourable. I have stayed at many hotels in my travels and this will be one that I will not visit again. This is rated as a four star hotel --you got to be kidding --more like 2.5 star. As I was travelling on my own I booked a single room and the... More

Dear Pdouvos, Thank you for your time reviewing our hotel. I am very sadden to hear the room you booked, our Matchbox, was smaller than you expected and your stay with us was not as pleasant as it should be. We are a 3.5 self-rated star hotel, never advertised as a 4 star hotel, and very proud of our heritage... More

Lovely rooms (recommended 401), great service and handy location. The only downside was the price - it wasn't really what I would consider budget. Having said that, if you get it at a good price, go for it!
