Loved everything about this hotel. Not posh but everything you needed. There was a city view from our room. The location was excellent. 5 minutes walk to China Town., The Chinese Gardens which was delightful. 10 minutes walk to Darling Harbour.

Pensione Hotel Sydney is in a great location in central Sydney within walking distance of Darling Harbour and two Metro Stations (Museum and Central). The room was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. What more do you need?

The hotel was great. Very easy to get to and right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Haymarket. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My air conditioner acted up on me one night, but the staff were on top of it. Thank you all for making my first visit to...

Thanks for your review Isabelle L! We are disappointed to read your review. We apologize the the front lift was out of order, however our rear lift was working perfectly to assist you with access to all room levels throughout the property. Our team are onsite 24/7 and are always happy to assist where possible, particularly your unwanted extra visitors!...

Sydney is a very expensive city and given how much other budget hotels were, I was a bit cautious about booking the Pensione Hotel. I am pleased to say that I didn't need to be as it was perfect. We booked a box room but it was plenty big enough for the two of us and had a spacious bathroom....

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.
