We stayed at Pensione Hotel for 1 night and it has exceeded our expectations. Even though the room was small, it was clean and had everything we need including basic toiletries like shampoos and body wash gel. The location was close to central station and town hall station which made it a great base for roaming around sydney. With the... More

In the first hour of being at this hotel, I wanted my money back. I wanted to stay somewhere else. We had to stop off at Essex street, walk through a very noisy and smelly restaurant and a creepy arcade to find the lift to the reception. The hotel does not have street frontage. Once we found the reception, there... More

Stayed here overnight. A quaint place which really tries to give good service in a building that is like a rabbit warren. My room was very clean and comfortable albeit small but this didnt matter. Bathrooms are completely refurbished. Beds comfortable. Despite being on George Street there was no traffic noise. The lift is very slow so better to take... More

Clean and good sized room, fair location in the city but problems with noise. My room was right next to reception and I could hear all the tel calls and conversations. The room also suffered from some noise vibrations whenever a large bus or truck went past - not the best. By no means a bad hotel, and i didn't... More

I booked the hotel in January 2014 for NYE so 11 months in advance due to a good price for the day in question. The location is good, close to Central Station, on the free 555 bus route around the city. The Rocks etc a good 20 minute walk. The room was very very small but comfortable and clean. We... More

The rooms were really small but very clean and the location was central to almost every where. The bed was super comfy too and the sedvice was friendly but waiting for 3pm check in sucked especially after getting of a cruise ship early!
