Mackay, Australia
Reviewed 18 February 2016

The Team was overall professional and courteous at all times. I found our room to be delightful to stay in. My husband hardly left the room let alone the bed. We are both happy customers. And we totally enjoyed our stay on George St, and we'd stay there again...

Pensione is a no frills, boutique hotel in the heart of the city. The staff are very friendly and accommodating (shout out to the warm and efficient Connie). Room was well appointed, and I have no trouble recommending this hotel.

This hotel is close to Central Station, theatres and Chinatown, withe regular buses passing the door to Circular Quay and other visitor landmarks. Access is by two steps which those with walking difficulty would find easier to negotiate with a handrail. Apart from this small problem, the hotel is ideal for a short stay. The reception staff were most helpful...

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.
