The Pensione is good value for money, especially in Sydney, clean, well-located and friendly I would stay there again but use a different booking platform. My purpose in writing this review is to warn any readers against using AMOMA. I booked a couple of days at the Pensione using AMOMA over Christmas / New Year well in advance (a couple...

Stayed here cause it was close to where I needed to be. It was quite clean but when I got to the room at 2am it smelt a little like ciggies. The people on the desk seemed nice, didn't require much from them. Wifi and alot of other things cost extra.

Dear Finbarr15, Thanks for your review. We are pleased that you found our rooms clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we do our best to limit the smell of smoke, however the outdoor designated smoking area can sometimes drift inwards. We do apologize.

Right in the centre of fantastic food outlets, close to trains and buses, within walking distance of most major central Sydney attractions. Staff were very efficient and friendly, room was always clean, just had an issue (for me) with cigarette smells at times - otherwise it is situated so well, was a warm and friendly place to stay.

We were arranged a 2 bedroom but we hv a child and is unable to add an additional bed. The reception was helpful and patient with our request to a change to a bigger room during this peak period. The room is clean and spacious. The only setback is there is no complementary bottled water.

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.
