Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fantastic location in Sydney centre and walking distance to a all places.
I visitided in 14 days in december 2022 because my son Ludvig is long staying at this place (4 month) and experienced the cindly familiar atmosphere at the hotel. Tony and Sam that runs the place gives positiv energy to there guests and are very service minded.

Booked a 7 night stay, stayed 2 hours only.
Absolutely disgusting. Bugs and cockroaches in bed. No way would I have used the bathroom.
Whole place stinks needs to be shut down, glad to see some places have stopped advertising it.
Book here and you will regret it.

Response from The George Sydney, General Manager at The George
Responded 15 Aug 2023
I am unable to recall or locate any such booking in our system. We have been operating under new management for the last 2 years. It doesn't ring true to us, because in our accommodation model, we only accept a minimum of 2 month stays (not 7 night stays). We do have a daily cleaning regime in all common areas and a weekly cleaning in all rooms. I suspect that you may have our accommodation place confused with another. For example there are several accommodation places in Sydney also with the name 'George' in them. I am sorry to hear about your bad experience.
