Location was excellent. Rooms and service were very good. Great deal for short notice. Decent size rooms. Close to train and restaurants walking distance to Chinatown and market city. Road works were in the process which made it loud and noisy but that won't always be the case. Overall enjoyable.

Rooms look great on website, does not look the same in real life. Needs updating, not even a coffeee cup! Stains on lamps, dark , low ceilings, felt claustrophobic. Had a balcony that looked out to a wall!

Good property if you're just looking for a place to 'bunk down' at a fairly affordable rate in the cbd area. Being close to popular shopping locations (and amenities) e.g. paddy's market, adds further value.

The location and staff were nice - the room we had was terrible. It seemed like the room was fit in the corner of the building so the bed appeared to be shortened to fit - we barely fit on it (and I'm only 5'4), you could not see the TV from the bed, the carpet felt very grimy, the...

The location was great as everything is nearby with many choices of entertainment, shopping and eating. Customer servuce was ecceptional from reception and the daily room service. This is our second stay at the Breakfree in George after trying many akternatives in the same area.

Reception was friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Toilet seat loose. Noisy fridge that kept defrosting spewing water on the floor. Our room backed onto the lift shaft which was very loud .Even on the the 12 th floor you can still hear lorries reversing beacons, from the on going tram line works.

No fuss with an early book in, very helpful staff made our visit to Sydney very easy as good information was given. The location is excellent within walking distance of the main attractions and the price is pretty good for being in the middle of Sydney.

A lovely room with a balcony gave a view over the Capitol Theatre precinct. The room was modern and clean with very comfortable beds. The team of staff were wonderful and helpful. Being so well located, even when we were exhausted there were plenty of eateries to choose from in just a few minutes walk. Would definitely stay here again

Staying in Chinatown

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.
