3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

From other reviews I was expecting a small room and that's what I got - open the door and there's the bed (the door barely missed the bed), but for one person it was comfortable, nice washroom and the air conditioning was nice. WiFi left a lot to be desired, would barely load most websites. Great location, right in the... More

First thing I need to mention - it was a very clean hotel! For a 3 star hotel, it was better than I expected. For a Saturday night, and needing to fit 3 people in the room the price was really good. We got the Trio room, which said that it had a double bed and a bunk bed. Getting... More

Clean, small although just needed the bed so perfect for us, if you like a large room do check! Otherwise most went well although when checking out at the deadline there was a long line so may be best to leave a little earlier or ask for a late checkout.

This was a perfect stay in Sydney. It was a 5-10 walk to Central Train station and so close to Chinatown with so many cafes/restaurants. It was clean and quiet, so no complaints there. My husband is a 100kg/183cm and the little double bed felt small as was the room. Although there was a window, you could not really open... More

I really enjoyed this hotel. I stayed on the first floor near the desk. It had a king bed and a very clean bathroom. Air conditioning worked great. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The elevator is slow but you could always take the stairs. Nice big screen television mounted on the wall. A water kettle with coffee and... More

First let me clarify that we did not get a family room so if you are lucky to find one available then this review may not apply to you. We had to book two separate rooms and they were VERY small and VERY basic. Think YMCA. The area around the hotel is a little seedy and the guests staying in... More

Dear Familyfuninsun, Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us at Pensione Hotel Sydney. The family rooms do sell very quickly as they are quite popular for families and larger groups being able to accommodate six (6) or more in one room. The rooms chosen were our standard rooms and are clean, comfortable and modestly fitted. We... More

Booked this hotel on relatively short notice, and during a peak time in Sydney given the Cricket World Cup and Mardi Gras hence the higher than average price was understandable. Pleasantly surprised at how charming the hotel was. You can tell that a good deal of care was given to maintaining the character of the building which has a good... More
