Landenberg, Pennsylvania

Great location for sight-seeing. Walking distance to the Sydney Eye and the Aquarium. Tons of shopping nearby and lots of pubs and restaurants to visit. Very friendly front desk staff and good value for the money!

Clean, light filled room with good facilities. Comfortable bed and very little noise from surrounds. Close to restaurants, theatre and public transport. The apartment had everything required for a business stay.

Location was awesome, very near to Paddy's Market and its on George Street. Lots of various cuisine and shopping to venture! Downfall was that the tram was under service hence it can be quite dusty especially on a windy day.

Room smelt of stale cigarette smoke. We had to turn on aircon and open both outside doors. Even then smell still lingered. Dirty fingermarks on walls, light switches and mirrors. VERY disappointing. New trainee (FEMALE) at reception was lovely. First male receptionist was very condescending.

A last minute family obligation found us returning to Break Free. Our room was clean and comfortable and of course it's position so close to all that the CBD has to offer makes this a very easy place to stay. All the wonderful restuarants and outlets that make Chinatown so interesting are a step outside your door. Want to catch...

Mildura, Australia
Reviewed 14 November 2016

Apartment was overpriced for what it was. Cleaning of the room was a very poor standard. $25 a day for internet is ridiculous. I would not stay here again for these reasons. The manager did take on board my complaint and said he would follow up which may resolve some issues.

Stayed here for a night while on business in Sydney nearby. It was a fine experience. Check in and out was quick and efficient. The room was a bit stuffy but the air conditioning was able to clear it up fairly quickly. For the price, it is a good choice.

Rooms were nothing like the photos on their website. Off site breakfast was shocking.. most of the time majority of food had run out and not refilled. Service average. Beds very uncomfortable! On arrival to our room there were pubic hairs and other hairs in the bath and up the walls of our shower. Rooms are tiny compared to the...

In general this is not the cleanest place I stayed for work. There is a faint smell in the rooms and corridors. Inadequate AC. Experienced noisy fridge, broken iron or ironing board at different times. Sometimes I come back to the room ti find bathroom not cleaned. But it is cheaper than others. Very central-great restaurants- hence it might be...

Good location to tourist activities. Hotel rooms were large and bright. Bed was so comfortable . Restaurants and pubs next door or short few minute walk. Very close or nearly positioned right in the heart of Chinatown. Would stay again and tell friends to as well.

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.
