Positive Reviews

Excellent base for exploring Sydney city centre.

Pensione Sydney offers accommodation that's close to many of the major attractions in Sydney. You can easily walk to Hyde Park and the Sydney Opera House, and Central train station is just 600 metres away.

Attentive staff are always on hand to help you.

You'll receive a high standard of customer service when you stay here, from the moment you check in to the day you leave. All requests are dealt with politely and diligently.

Good soundproofing in the rooms keep things quiet.

This hotel is located in a busy and noisy area of Sydney, but luckily the rooms here don't let too much of this outside noise in. You can rest up in your room and not be disturbed by the city bustle.

Negative Reviews

This place is not being kept clean enough.

The cleaners really need to up their game here. You could have to deal with dirty carpets in the hallways or sticky surfaces in the communal kitchen. Even some of the sheets in the rooms are stained.

Air conditioning units are old and inefficient.

You might find that the air conditioning in your room is hard to control, with it either being too hot or too cold. The air con units are a bit noisy and really need to be replaced or repaired to make staying in the rooms more comfortable.

Overpriced considering the quality of the rooms.

Besides from the great location, Pensione Sydney has little else going for it. The tariffs here are a bit too high for the generally basic rooms and the few facilities provided by the hotel.
