The Pensione Hotel offers accommodation

The Pensione Hotel offers accommodation at a reasonable rate and the room, although small, was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the hotel is in an area which is somewhat "rough" and the noise from people gathering in an outside courtyard just below our room was somewhat disturbing.

We stay in the Premium Triple

We stay in the Premium Triple room is good size and comfortable bed. Good location but there was no kitchen/microwave in the room but it has in hotel facility which operate from 7am till 10pm only. There no shower cap provided. And the floor has many stair step that hard for us with baby pram. You would not consider if you have to use disable chair or a baby pram for this hotel. And when you check out of the hotel, you need to hire the locker as there no services for storage you luggages at all.

Hotel in Chinatown

Pensione Hotel is a small hotel that does not have a hotel shuttle from airport. It's best to take a taxi from the airport and take the O'Riordan street and not the highway because it's more expensive. The hotel is in the middle of Chinatown which is great for walking to restaurants. The reception is on the 1st floor so stay on ground level to use the elevators but the hotel is so tiny and circled and even if you take elevators there are still so many stairs to take so be aware of that. The rooms are so tiny and so are the hallways but I really enjoyed it. We traveled to Melbourne and New Zealand and stayed at other hotels although they were larger, we missed Pensione Hotel the best. We got there early and check in is still 14:00 but it was already ready for us so that was a nice bonus. They had enough towels for all of us, unlike other hotels.
