We stayed here in January 2013. For a large city the location is quite good, some of the main destinations can be accessed on foot if you are able, e.g. Sydney Harbour, Opera House, The Rocks. Chinese Garden, although take comfy shoes. Walking is the easiest option, although Public Transport easily caught locally. As we were staying for a few... More

A group of us stayed overnight, taking up 3 rooms. We all thought this hotel was great value for money, with a great location between Central Station and Darling Harbour. The staff were all very pleasant, helpful, friendly and seemed genuine. We loved the whole feel of the place, the rooms were all very clean, and there were no noise... More

Not very close to Central Station, 10-15 min walk, but might be a little troublesome if you're with a luggage. The entrance is not very clear except for banners that are above eye level. There is a quaint little old elevator that can take you to all floors. First floor is reception, and they didn't let us know but there's... More

I had a great stay at Pensione over the New Year, it wasn't until I arrived home that my heart sank and devastation hit. My beloved Tag watch that was wrapped in the underwear of my case was gone. The hotel say basically that I am lying, no one has taken my watch. I guess it is their word against... More

Right in the heart of Chinatown. About 20 minutes walk to the shopping district. And just a stone throw away from Capitol theatre and near the entertainment centre. Very well located. The building has nice heritage feel but the rooms are modern. Very simple amenities. It's more a place to just sleep then spend the time in the room. Beds... More

We were very happy with the location of this hotel, & even when staying on the George street side it was very quiet so must be soundproofed well. The reception staff were very friendly each time we felt with them. They were really good about holding your luggage if you were too early to check in/you left on a late... More

We were a bit shocked how small our room was and how high the tv was - very high ceilings, and it is up there!! So you have to lay down on the bed to see it - mind you, there are no other seating options bar the toilet. Speaking of which, the bathroom was on par, but the shower... More

Hotel is in a good position and I believe it is value for money. Something which was disappointing and the hotel could improve on is their communication with customers about the extra cost's in parking. Parking was at the Capitol Theatre which was reasonable in Sydney but because we had a late check out at 12:00 (noon) we got stung.... More

Don’t be put off by the outside appearance, or the inside for that matter! The hotel entrance is not very welcoming and you need to catch a fairly slow lift to the Reception Desk. Even the sight of this does not fill you with confidence until you speak to the staff. They are really friendly and welcoming and most helpful.... More
