Very glad we selected Pensione Hotel. Proximity to city market...food courts, restaurants, entertainment outlets, train stations, shopping centers, heaps of 7 elevens. George St. is one of the busiest....so so so many people..just like us going to where we are suppose to go.

Pensione Sydney is located in an excellent location. Close to Central Station and Town Hall Station. Just located behind is Chinatown and a short walk to Darling Harbour. Bus stop to Circular Quay - Opera House and Harbour Bridge is abot 50m away on George Street. So conveniently located. Double thumbs up.

It's not a hotel you would awe at but it provides the basic necessities. You can get a map of Sydney from the front desk and you can ask them for directions to stuff you want to see. Most importantly the bed and the bathroom areas are clean, The AC in my room buzzes constantly. Some nights I mind it,...

The hotel was amazing and the staff were very helpful. Right in the heart of george street. so in walking distance to a lot of things. The only downfall was the bed was not very nice to sleep on. Other than that i would recommend this hotel.

I got a great deal here, and loved it from the moment I walked in. The place is a bit like a Tardis, with a narrow street entrance on George street, but expanding behind. I arrived on a wet day. It is one stop on the light rail from central station, plus a short walk. Exploring the guest lounge, which...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood'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 theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
