just returned from 2 days in hotel, good value for money local for everything, free shuttle, five mins from station, close to market and restaurants. only 20 min walk to Darling Harbour will definitely stay here again. also arrived early and they held on to our bags whilst we went out.
very friendly and helpful staff, thought breakfast was expensive but plenty of places to eat nearby.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

The hotel was recommended by our tour agent. I travelled with my wife, daughters, father, brother and sisters 9 of us for holiday. We stayed in 4 rooms at different levels for a week (2/6 – 7/6/2014).

The location is excellent as most of the attractions in the city such as QVB, Westfield, Darling Harbour, Chinatown and Paddy Market are all within 20 mins walking distance. Halal foods are easily available nearby & the “Mamak” Malaysian restaurant (always full with long queue) is less than 10 min walking distance.

The room was quite large with a nice little kitchen, a sofa with centre table and a study table. The bed was confortable whilst the room being cleaned every day, The only set back is that the TV had limited number of channels & no free internet/wifi in the room.

We noted that several earlier reviews on noise problems but we did not encountered such excessive noise level may be because of our room is on the 11 floor.

Lastly, we are very pleased with the staff as they have been very professional, courteous, friendly and very accommodating. Many thanks to the staff.

We would definitely choose Breakfree on George Sydney Hotel the next time we’re in Sydney and recommend this hotel to anyone wanting good accommodation in city central location.

Note a few mixed reviews on here, but we thought it was great. Hugely convenient location and nice room and amenities. We got a good deal on Grabone (NZ's home grown Groupon) so at the price we were well impressed. Staff helpful, check-in hassle free. Requests prior to check in were met, no dramas! Room was spacious and clean.
Why not five stars?
No hotel guide in room. no info on wifi, TV has the stupid (IMHO) movie star remote which cripples all the usual functions so plugging in your own USB stick and getting it to work was hard! MInor stuff though compared to the location and ease of stay.,

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor.

Breakfree on George is in a great location. The room was a good size, includes little food preparation area. Generally needs a paint job and cleanup. For the price expected a little more polish. The bath was scratched and a bit grubby looking. Give the In-House breakfast a miss. Very poor quality and quantity. Ordinary coffee. Lots of great choices very close by.

I have noted your concern in regards to the general maintenance standard of the room and Breakfast service. We do really appreciate for providing us with valuable feedback where this can be used as great tool for our assessment as guest's point of view.

Thank you again and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon.

Approximately 20 minute walk to Sydney Harbor and 10 minute walk to Darling Harbor. Directly across the intersection from the Capitol Theater. Close to many restaurants (local, fine dining, fast food) and nestled between China Town and Thai Town. Across the street from a large market.

Hotel was clean. Room had a kitchenette. Controllable thermostat...which you may take for granted if you're visiting from North America, like I did. Not all accommodations were heated on my vacation.
