We have stayed at the Pensione on numerous occasions. The triple room is great for a family with 2 children and the separate showers are essential for travellers unable to use a shower over a bath. The location is fantastic - easy walking distance to Capitol Theatre for shows, Paddy's Market, Chinatown, Darling Harbour, Central Station, Light Rail stations and... More

Have stayed at this Hotel a number of times. A great location less than 5 minutes walk from Central Station. Two minute walk to Paddy's Market, couple of minutes to China Town and Darling Harbour. Right on George Street. Always clean. Friendly staff. Has a shared kitchen if you want to cook something.

This heritage hotel had warm comfy beds, showers were awesome and the staff were very friendly and informative. Location itself is great, walking distance to china town, darling harbour and as did shopped our way down to Circular Quay. Rooms are slightly small but your only there to shower and sleep. Parking very handy and close. Will definitely stay again.

We had an awesome stay at the pensione hotel. We were there for 2 nights, we booked the standard petite double room and it was bigger than expected, great location, the price is very reasonable and we loved the shared guest room on level 1. The staff were helpful and very nice people. We would definitely stay here again.

Thoroughly unpleasant stay. This hotel is dark and dingy. My room, which was apparently 'deluxe', had flimsy tatty curtains on the windows that failed to do anything apart from hide the dismal view. There is no heating in the room. The mattress, itself collapsing on one corner, had a large piece of rubber sewn over the top of it making... More

We only stayed overnight but the staff were very helpful with our requests and the hotel was clean and our room was well equipt. Would use them again for our stays in Sydney because they are so central to everything.

Just got back from our weekend stay. From the very helpful and friendly staff to the excellent George St location to the budget price, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Great little hotel in central location, lots of local restaurants and shops near by. Room was small (average sized considering you're in Sydney), very clean, tidy, and comfortable. Even though it was located on a main road, there was no noise inside. Huge sunny window, so got a good view of the city. The staff were friendly and knowledgable, even... More
