I wanted to stay at the highly rated Meriton Kent Street, but the rate for the first couple of days of my trip was too high. I decided to find a less expensive hotel for the first two nights and was pleasantly surprised by the Pensione. The hotel offers a great location in an older boutique building. Nearby attractions include... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night and it was great! It's close to China Town and Darling Harbour and a stroll to the Rocks and Circular Quay. The guys at the front desk were friendly and allowed us to check in early. The room was small, but had everything we needed. We stayed on a Saturday night... More

The Pensione Hotel offers fantastic value for its location, which is on the way from the train station to the main tourist areas (and is located next to Chinatown - there is also a hop-on-hop-off bus stop right out front). The hotel also has a guest lounge so that if travellers arrive early before their rooms are ready, they can... More

Our family really enjoyed our stay in the Family room at the Pensione. The location was ideal, right next to Chinatown, and the staff were friendly. It's a great building too, much more interesting than your average Hotel. Room was unbelievably quite, despite overlooking George Street.

Clean and comfortable room with a very friendly and helpful reception. Walking distance to darling harbour, chinatown, central station and pitt st mall, and then from there it's just a short walk to circular quay. Heaps of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops around. Only complaints would be heaters need an upgrade and the lack of storage space in room and... More

great place to stop in the heart of Sydney, within walking distance of Chinatown, the Markets, Darling Harbour etc., would thoroughly recommend this hotel, but it has no bar. As there are plenty of bars and eating places very handy, this was no problem. the rooms were clean, staff very helpful and obliging. We will certainly be back when next... More

I definitely recommend this hotel for travellers looking for affordable accommodation in a central location. My "shoebox" room was small, but very well equipped and was clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The staff were all very friendly and helpful as well. The best feature of this hotel, in my opinion, is its Haymarket location. You are walking distance to all... More
