Tiny and Tidy

I have a comfortable stay in this hotel - everything is there, basic but well provided. The bed is quite small even for a small person like myself. Clean, quiet room and friendly staff. No wifi and the TV is not placed for comfortable viewing. Great location, close to the night market in China Town.

Perfect location, comfy rooms

Really enjoyed my stay, room was good size, comfy bed & pillows, delicious smelling shower gel. Staff really friendly & helpful. TV was in an awkward spot on the wall but no big deal. Great location on George st, perfect as was my first time in Sydney. 1min walk to Market City. Would definately stay here again. Bit of noise from Charlie chans bar & the church (singing) but no big deal at all. Found it quieter/more peaceful than the Hilton!

Quick overnight stay

My experience at the hotel was fine. it is located close to the train station back to the airport. The hotel was completely fine, but nothing special. The room was very small but I suspected that. The bathroom was nice though. The front desk person when i checked in wasn't very knowledgeable, but the staff person in the morning when i checked out was great. WiFi was slow and didn't work well in the room. I was only there one night as a layover so didn't need much.

Great Hotel in CBD

The hotel is accessed by elevator from the door on George St. Reception on the first floor. Check-in was easy and staff friendly. My room was very small, and it appeared that many of the rooms are also small. There is a good size bathroom with shower, flat screen TV and mini fridge in the room. I found the hotel very clean, both rooms and public areas. The free CBD bus stops right outside the hotel as well as many other bus routes. There is a market a couple blocks away with a fantastic variety of fresh fruit and veg.

Good location, friendly staff

The hotel is a lot cleaner than the Great Southern Hotel I stayed at a few days earlier. The front desk staff was cheerful and helpful. The hotel didn't charge a fee to store my suitcase for 3 hours after check-out while I shopped before being picked up by the airport shuttle.

Pensione Hotel

The hotel staff was friendly and the location was very conveniently located near the train station. I was there only overnight and the access to town and restaurants was helpful. The area turned a little tougher at night but the hotel staff was well aware and locked the doors at 10 PM. The room was nicely furnished and clean. It had a nice coffee/tea service, min-fridge and room safe. Just be aware though that when they say petite, they mean it. I would stay there again if in the city.
