We stayed here with out daughter. The room we got was large and had plenty of space for three or four people. Location is in the middle of every thing with many options for food, and a giant grocery store across the street. They have a kitchen that every one shares, and we used it every day to make breakfast.... More

This little boutique hotel is located right in the heart of the CBD and very close to Haymarket. It is a good place to stay in the CBD on a budget. The rooms are small but clean and tidy. You will get what you pay for but it is quite acceptable. Only basic facilities a restaurants and bars a very... More

I booked through a travel agent to stsy here for a week. Unfortunately, upon arrival, no reservation could be found. After providing paper reservation, I was quickly provided a nice, clean, quiet room and a map with information about the area. I felt totally at home and safe walking alone late in the evening. There's a grocery across the street,... More

Fantastic location, easy access to all central locations and excellent price for centre of Sydney. Shoebox room was a shoebox, but this hotel delivered on exactly what it promised so we weren't at all disappointed. Everything very clean and super comfortable (nice bed and linden) and staff very friendly and helpful. We arrived early and room wasn't ready, and loved... More

We are regular visitors to Sydney, travelling by train. Pensione is in the perfect position for us and is a great little hotel. The staff are right up there in making you feel welcome and getting you settled. This is a great place for a one night stopover. Amazingly quiet, given the location.

My stay met my needs for 10 days in Sydney. The accommodation was walking distance to all places I needed to go and this was the key reason for choice. It was a little noisy with emergency services vehicles but then it in the CBD. It was generally peaceful and the guest lounge was great.

Ideal location, quiet rooms and the most efficient and very helpful staff. I booked the hotel on line not knowing the location, but expecting the same quality as the Pensione in Melbourne. I was not disappointed on both counts. Great place to stay.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighborhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theater, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
