BreakFree on George
Ranked #97 of 180 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The experience to stay in the executive studio of Breakfree hotel was nice. The room was very well equipped with all the facilities and I enjoyed the stay.
There was an instance that the housekeeping staff left the entire garbage bag of the floor in the room and I had to keep it outside for them to collect.
Also the hotel which charge so much says, the milk provided on the first day (Pura Milk Carton) was only fir the first day and they provided other milk when requested. This is what I do not understand, felt stupidity of the management.
Overall the stay was great.

We stayed during a long weekend & it was one of the only reasonably priced 2 bed apartment in the city. It was in a great location, minutes to china town, Sydney entertainment centre & capitol theatre. It was neat & tidy & I would stay there again. No onsite parking but there is a garage across the road & if u get a stamp on your ticket from the hotel you get a good discount.

We stayed here and found it to be fine.mnomissues, it was clean and fresh. Nothing special in terms of facilities but great location. We didn't eat there. Great service. It was great to get to China Town, very close to Darling Harbour.

I recently stayed at Breakfree on George in Sydney (midweek). The location was excellent, only minutes away from all the restaurants in China Town, 15mins walk away from Darling Harbour, 10mins walk from Central Station. The free shuttle bus is also closeby. Cannot fault the location at all.

I stayed in a studio room, which included a small kitchenette with all cooking utensils provided. The room was not 5 star (which was expected, being a 'Breakfree' - which is around a 3-3.5 star). The bathroom was a bit old and in need of some refurb. My room was facing Sussex Street, so was not noisy at all (I stayed on level 3). And maybe the fact that I stayed midweek, it was a lot quieter.

The service from the staff was OK. I received the best service from a 'Trainee' staff member. Everyone else was not rude.... but didn't seem friendly.

I would stay here again for the location. As I didn't have high expectations for this place, I was not disappointed with anything in particular, because you get what you pay for. I paid $119 per night (lastminute.com.au). I don't think I would pay anything more than this price for the quality and service received.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Sussex Street are quieter. There are two entrances to the hotel, the entrance via Georg...

we stayed 3 nights for the price of 2 so was good value on a budget. nothing fancy but good location right in china town and close to public transport and walking distance to a lot of sights in Sydney. Roomy enough for a family of 4 clean but nothing extra would stay again if on a budget would try something a bit more up market if just 2 of us. Day spa available in hotel. staff friendly.

When a person is far from what they are used to, it is rare to find people like Breakfree on George staff. My extended stay was without a doubt on the top of my list for all the comforts of a home-away-from home experiences I have ever had.

I send my greatest appreciation to all of the Breakfree on George family for professionalism, responsiveness to needs and just plain courtesy at all times. Emery, Bart and Charmarie, standout as amazing people!

Thank you again for everything...it was my pleasure also!

Room Tip: West side for the best sunsets Sydney has to offer and fireworks.

We stayed there for 3 nights and was ideal for us. The room was adequate, clean and was serviced daily.
The receptionist was friendly and helpful. Location was ideal as we went to a show at Capitol Theatre which is across the road. Price wise was great as we got a good deal on the hotel's web site.
