Very handily located hotel in the heart of town half way between Town hall and central train stations. The staff were friendly and efficient, the room (406) was larger than the usual inner city hotel room and was soundproofed and warm. The kitchen facilities were basic but adequate and the shower was perfect. There is nothing I can think of... More

For the first time, my wife and I decided to experience Vivid, the amazing light show held in Sydney during May/June. Coming from the South Coast, we needed some overnight accommodation and we managed to get a deal with the Pensione Hotel on George Street opposite Capitol Square. We had the choice of a small double room or, for a... More

Recently stayed in your hotel for 3 nights while I attended the Sydney Writers Festival, I had booked a "shoebox" room but was upgraded to a larger room, spacious and immaculate, good sized bathroom, a window that opens and lets "fresh air" in. Used the kitchen/lounge area easily able to prepare breakfast and light meal, provided with daily newspaper. Loved... More

Loved the price and the location. The bed was large and comfortable. Room 119 is were we started but the heater was faulty and very noisy so we were moved next door to 120. Same comfy bed and a quiet heater but the shower head pointed directly at the shower screen (that was broken too) so you couldn't avoid getting... More

The staff are really helpful given I was not booking in until late. The room was well appointed and comfortable. Will definitely look to stay again for my next visit. It would have been useful if there was a breakfast option, but staff were happy to recommend local options. A little out if town, but well priced to reflect this.
