With Sydney booked out for Chinese New Year, the usual business hotels I stay in were just way too expensive. So I stayed at Pensione and had a lovely stay. There is no desk and the room is small but it clean, comfy and the location is fabulous. Ask for a room that faces the courtyard (not George St) and... More

I would have given this hotel a 5 star review if it wasn't for the bed..... We loved our stay at the Pensione in Melbourne so we decided to give the Sydney version a go. We were visiting Sydney for a concert at the entertainment centre and the Pensione was just around the corner...so the location was perfect! Located right... More

I stayed a couple of nights for a business trip. If a few things can be improved I'd make this my regular hotel in Sydney. The location of this hotel is great on the edge of Chinatown and walking distance to Central and Town Hall stations. The building has a real heritage charm with the benefits of a recent renovation.... More

Thank you for your review Sar6e, We are pleased to see you found the Pensione Sydney’s location to your liking and you loved the feel and real charm of the heritage building. It’s such an eclectic building set back in the mid-1850s era (formally a post office). Thank you for your candid feedback in relation to the ironing board size.... More

After staying in a very dodgy hotel in Surry Hills I found this lovely hotel and booked an hour before I arrived. Perfect location, right in the centre of the CBD! Staff were very friendly and welcoming, room was small but it does state on the website how big the rooms are! For one person I was very content! Boutique... More

This hotel is a real find- a fantastic location, bang in the middle of Sydney's wonderful Chinatown, and at an affordable price. The front of house team were charming and incredibly helpful, the hotel was astonishingly quiet at night for a place in the CBD which was so near so many backpacker hostels, my room and bathroom were modern and...

I had a great time staying at this hotel, only one night but I will definitely stay again the next time I'm in Sydney! Very clean bathroom and sheets bar a few hairs on the sheets and the floor, probably the cleaner rushing or not paying attention to detail. I am a perfectionist and it wouldn't stop me from staying... More

The hotel is conveniently located and reasonably priced for what it offers. The building is old, but the interior is refurbished and quite decent. Rooms were clean and comfortable and quiet. No complaints really.

I loved this hotel, it is quirky, stylish and modern. The room was small but well put together so space wasn't an issue. The bed was very big and comfy with plenty of pillows. I only dealt with one employee for my entire stay, a young man on reception. I can't praise him enough! He was friendly, helpful and nothing... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pensione Hotel for 4 nights. We very much enjoyed our stay. We knew beforehand that the room would be tiny, but it was very clean and comfortable. We could not hear anyone on either side of us -- in fact, the entire hotel was very quiet! The complimentary internet was unbelievably slow --... More

I stayed at the Pensione Hotel on George St during my first visit in Sydney, which was on business. My room - the Shoebox - was certainly small, but it was clean, pleasant, and had everything I needed including a very comfortable bed, fresh towels, nice, basic toiletries, air-conditioning, and a mini-fridge. The Pensione is a lovely and quirky old... More
