I needed to stay somewhere central whilst I was visiting Sydney for my brothers 30th birthday celebrations. This was a four day weekend in which I took in the sights as well as experienced some great restaurants and bars. My only gripe is that I had to pay for parking in the car parking building across the road. $30 a night. I feel this is not explained clearly enough, as when I did my research on this hotel I asked wether it had parking. Maybe I should ask wether it has free parking next time. Never mind lesson learnt.

Room Tip: If you have a rental car you have to pay extra for parking in the car park building across the road...

Dear J B,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your recent experience at BreakFree on George. I am delighted to hear that you had a great time in Sydney.

Unfortunately due to our central location and being right in heart of the City, there is no free parking available nearby the hotel. In fact $30 per day rate is negotiated discount rate for our hotel guests.

Once again, thank you for your valuable feedback and we look forward for the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future.

Kind regards,

Rina Park

Great place to stay in Sydney. Central to Thai town and China town. Paddys market really close. Short walk to most attractions or you can catch the 555 free bus and see the city. Darling harbour is only a five minute walk and at night the city light are spectacular.

I recently stayed here with friends for a one night stay as we were going to the theatre. Easy check in / out service with friendly staff. We stayed in the open plan room with a separate main bedroom, two bathrooms and two single beds and a sofa bed in the main area. Nice clean and tidy kitchenette area. The shower / baths while clean, look a little dated and will probably be due for a renovation soon. We also found the room to be quite noisy - admittedly we were only on the first floor but 3 out of 5 of us were woken by a group of guys fighting in the street below at 1.30am.

Beds were very comfortable and the pillows were AMAZING! Would be happy to stay again if on a higher floor to escape any street noise.

Only stayed one night, great location, the staff were lovely and very helpful, the room was a good size and comfortable. The only negatives were no parking you had to park else where, and it was very noisy, didnt get much sleep from traffic on george street. Was on the 12th floor. But all in all very good.

The location of the hotel is easy to find from Central Station as it is on George Street facing Sussex Street. We stayed for 3 nights. As we arrived at 11.30am the lovely lady behind the reception asked us if we would like to place our bags in the locked storeroom until check in at 2pm. We accidently left our bags on the trolley next to the storeroom & when we came to collect them we were told that they had been taken to our room. This was fantastic service for a small hotel. Any question we asked at the desk they were only too happy to help, even booking our airport shuttle for us, which arrived when it was supposed to. Our room (1213) was comfortable and the furnishings look rather new. The street noise wasn't too bad. We were so tired after sightseeing all day that that didn't bother us. The free 555 bus stops just metres from the front door to the hotel this takes you into the city & up as far as Circular Quay. Very happy with our stay here and will definitely stay again.
