Great location. We stayed here for one night only with friends. Walked to Jamie Oliver's restaurant for dinner which was about a 25-30 minute walk. This hotel we booked on a special deal for about 80 percent off. Was great value. Older style hotel but modern bathrooms. Plenty of places close by to eat breakfast. They did have a guest... More

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

Dear Dianehw13, Thank you for your candid review. We are pleased that we could accommodate an early check in for your arrival at 5.30am instead of our standard check-in time of 3.00pm – so you could refresh after you long flight. We appreciate your concerns regarding the incidentals deposit (or pre-authorisation, noted on our parties booking sites) of your card... 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.

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
