Check in / reception staff were so welcoming and helpful. Nothing was a trouble for them or the maintenance guy.Lots of potential for this place when renovations and room upgrades take place. Great location.

Carpet very stained and dirty. Bathroom nice - good water pressure and roomy shower. Very small room with nowhere to sit and work on a laptop, except the single bed. Climate control did not work - portable heater supplied by helpful front desk staff.

The carpet was stained and shabby. The room wasn't serviced properly (tea cup not washed, linen not replaced).No drinking glass provided. Good location for business travel. Bathroom was recently renovated.

The room smelt heavily of smoke and mustiness. I asked reception if i could open the window (a key is...

After you get over the surprise of the door hitting the bed I was greeted by the smell. Judging by the amount of dust on the hair dryer in the bathroom it hadn't been cleaned for some time. There was hair on the bathroom walls and dirt in the bed.

Don't ever put anyone in the room I stayed in. It is best suited to a single bed not a double and really needed a good clean. I now have a case of tinea on my feet to contend with. I was extremely disappointed as I had expected so much more.

Breakfree on Clarence is a moderately priced hotel on Clarence St, very close to Martin Place and the centre of Sydney CBD. As such the location is brilliant if you have business in the CBD. The rooms are adequately sized, but the beds are truly excellent. The moderate price is obviously dependent on the rather hostel like foyer and decore,...

This place was clean and comfortable. It was reasonably priced. It was ideal for a short stay in Sydney as it is close to public transport. Check-in was easy and we felt welcome and well looked after.

Quite small rooms, buts very clean and comfortable beds. By room was on the top floor with no external windows, but had a skylight which was great during the day, but really annoying when the sun came up early and lit up the bed very brightly early in the morning. Ideally it should have a shade. Rooms were nice and...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
