I was extremely happy with the location. Very close to shops and restaurants in Chinatown. The room is average size, but there was a musty odor that is unpleasant on first entry into the room. There was no view from my room (#115). The staff was very helpful.

We stayed at Pensione Hotel for 3 nights while attending the AUS X OPEN. I chose this hotel because of price but mainly location. I wanted to stay somewhere close the Central Station to be able to catch the train to the moto-x. Hotel is on George street, which at the moment is in construction but it didn't bother us...

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.
