I stayed for two nights in early Dec. The location of the hotel is great, it's eay to walk to lots of places (Cole is only minutes away!). The free city bus (no. 555) which runs along George Street (from Central station to Circular Quay) stops in front of the hotel so it's very convenient to get around places from... 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!

This was my second stay at Pensione Hotel, the first time I was on my own and had a good room, very quiet with a great bathroom and very comfortable bed.

The bad; the windows are over looked by everybody else in the inner courtyard. Sink was too small to fill kettle and kettle cord too short, had to be boiled on floor. the room and bathroom are small. The parking cost us an extra $15 because the hotel did not advise us to exit the car park before 11am. The... More

Possibly the comfiest bed Ive ever slept in. The bathroom was modern and very luxurious, as were the complimentary bits and bobs. The room was nice and spacious and also very VERY quiet. The only thing was that id put the 'do not disturb' sign up on the door, but at about 10 am we got a call from housekeeping,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights to attend the birthday of a friend. Very convenient location, especially to Chinatown, Capitol Theatre and Darling Harbour. Although the room was a little small, it was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Ensuite was a good size and the iron in each room welcome for those last minute touch ups. Staff were extremely... More

We chose this hotel for its location and overall we were satisfied by our choice. The room we got was quiet because it did not face George Street unfo it was a bit small for our one-month-out-of-home suitcases; indeed we could barely move around the bed...but this was not our priority!! The room was clean and cozy and the receptionist... More

My husband and I stayed here in November. I got a fantastic deal through Travelzoo, $99.00 a night. The hotel offers guests parking for $30.00 per night at the Capitol Square Car Park in Campbell Street, only a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. Our room was a pleasant surprise when we arrived. It was nicely presented, adequate in... More

I found an excellent deal on Wotif for about A$100 per night -- checked on Tripadvisor and it seemed like a decent hotel, and indeed it was. I was expecting an extremely small room and an extremely small bathroom, but while the place was not spacious, there was some room to move around. I had a room facing the back... More
