Location is perfect for the avid explorer. By foot China Town is 1 minute away, Darling Harbour 10/15 mins and Circular Quay a nice 30 minute stroll. Neighbourhood was bustling and had a pretty safe feel. Will definitely be back with the kids! Thank you Pensione Sydney

This hotel is very good value for money. Perfect location, literally it's located in the heart of city, right on George street, just within walking distance to the Capitol, World Square, QVB, Opera house and shopping and dining places and many more. Another plus point is you can reach here via 3 different train stations which are Central, Museum and...

Clean affordable hotel in good location. Hotel had everything we needed for a short stay. The only downfall was that there was a smell of cigarette that came wafting into the room in the morning, likely from another guest doing the wrong thing.

We chose this hotel because of it's location - very central to CBD and Darling Harbour. The hotel is quaint. Our room was compact. I don't think there was a restaurant for breakfast but there were a few cafes nearby.

Good location in Sydney. Walk few minutes to Central station. Nearby China Town, and many shops. My room has kettle, refrigerator, hairdryer, iron and WIFI, they are more than sufficient to us. Clean room and bathroom. Friendly staff provide Sydney map and recommendation, hotel also provides luggage storage after check out.

The Good Things: Hotel staff are great and my room was big (bigger than expected - I think I must have had an upgrade), well decorated and immaculately clean. The ensuite was nice and I had a fridge and kitchenette which actually proved really useful! Either the place has just had a refurb or the cleaners do an amazing job!...

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.
