Sydney is a very expensive city and given how much other budget hotels were, I was a bit cautious about booking the Pensione Hotel. I am pleased to say that I didn't need to be as it was perfect. We booked a box room but it was plenty big enough for the two of us and had a spacious bathroom....

I felt this room was good value for money for Sydney. The building and corridors were old and tired but it was a nice surprise when I opened my room door to find a great room with a kitchenette. Bed was fabulous - really comfortable. Hotel is quiet. Bathroom was great although very little water came out of the shower...

Your hotel building has a long history but sometimes your room facility seems has also runned long time. We family has lived a lot of good hotels during our this journey, this hotel is not bad but really needs to care about details.

OK, so the standard rooms are quite small but for tourist couples, who (like us), love to enjoy getting out and about, it is fine. Extremely clean, tidy and excellent housekeeping on a daily basis. Reception staff extremely helpful. There is a guest lounge and kitchen area should you choose to do your own cooking, however as you are right...

Apart from the toilet not filing up very fast after each flush (taking all night to fill) it was a comfortable night stay and great location for what we were after - close to train station and restaurants etc. It would have been nice to get more than just a quick 'sorry' about the toilet situation considering the cost of...

Dear 114alannab, We are disappointment to read that your romantic evening for valentines day was underwhelming. We are pleased to see that although the historic building did not have AC in the foyer, our guest rooms and location was to your liking. Warmest Regards, Simon Farr General Manager

Clean bathroom, friendly services, nice location. But I didn't drink or eat anything. I have been charged 4 dollars for a bottle of water. It's not too much. But I promise I don't drink that. To be honest, it makes me a little bit unhappy. 浴室还算干净,前台还友好,地理位置还不错。但是我没喝或吃任何东西却被收取了4刀,不是很多钱,但是管理上有漏洞,这次旅途唯一的不开心。下次会换别的酒店。

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.
