Pensione Hotel Sydney - by 8Hotels
Ranked #63 of 180 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed 31 July 2017

We stayed for one night so we could go to a show in Darling Harbour. All good with the room (shoebox size) and after asking for a quiet room on booking we were given room 119. This is around the back away from the street so even though the lightrail construction was happening we didn't hear a thing. The bed was a bit soft for our liking but others may prefer that. All in all a good place to stay as it is central to various attractions and also close to public transport. If you want a place to stay for a few nights without any frills while you sightsee then this should be ok.

Room Tip: Shoebox room 119 (1 queen bed) is quiet

Very convenient location at a reasonable price. The rooms are small but have everything you need for an overnight stay.
Easy walking distance to Darling Harbour and the ICC and to Chinatown.
I was a little worried about the light rail construction work outside but it wasn't a problem at all, even though we had a front room.

Thanks for your review Jan S,
It is always refreshing to hear we delivered what we advertise! So pleased to see that our rooms were quiet and comfy and our location was to your liking. The light rail will be fantastic once it is completed (great thing our front facing rooms are double glazed for a good nights rest). See you again soon Jan S!

This hotel is perfectly located on George Street, with walking distance to Central train station. The staffs we met here during our stay are friendly and helpful. However, th fridge provided in our room has a temperature too low for food storage- our fruits became hard and icy after a nights' storage. Also, we booked a three people room, but when towels were changed, only two were replaced and we had to ask for one more from the staff. Other than that, beds are soft and comfortable, we had a pleasant stay here.

We stayed 8nights in this little hotel. Our stay was comfortable. The hotel has a great location and is within walking distance major attractions, stations and surrounded by malls and restaurants. Highly recommended.

I stayed from 23/7 to 28/7. I do not have much expectations with regard to the hotel. The only reason I booked this hotel was due to the reviews that states that they have an amazing group of staff. True enough, they were all amazing. From counter staff to their housekeeper. Room service are done everyday unless you are told otherwise. They even make the effort to leave a note when there are messages to be passed to me.

The room were clean and comfortable to live in for 5 nights. I do not get the room that's facing George St and it is quiet at night. They lock the doors at 9pm every night for security reasons and that's a thumb's up.

Its location is the main selling point. You can literally walk everywhere. You need guidance? Ask the staff at the reception and they will be more than happy to help you out. They will go all the way to make Pensione Hotel Sydney a home away from home.
