1 day in Sydney

Really friendly front desk staff. We arrived early however they let us put our cases in the room. For 5 of us there were 2 bathrooms which was awesome and a pleasant relief as there were 3 teenagers with us . Only criticism would be that we were missing 1 towel.....not a big problem and I am sure they would have sorted it had we asked. A comfortable stay and nice and close to the rail station and main street.

Rooms

The hotel was very conveniently located, our family suite was very nice and was on the 3rd floor. However my parents room was on the 6th floor and they found it extremely noisy through the night. Overall good value for money.

Sydney New Years Eve

Room rate increased by more than 300% for NYE for a basic studio room. Bathroom door needs replacing or repair, no exhaust fan in bathroom & no free wifi for the heavily overcharged room rate. The real benefit of this hotel was location to light rail and central railway station.

Excellent value!

The staff were very helpful. The only criticism was the bathroom was setup as a disabled bathroom and was in need of a makeover, whereas the room was up-to-date and very comfortable.

Excellent getaway

Enjoyed our 2night stay here on Breakfree on George, we arrived early and staff were willing to put away our luggage in their storeroom while we roam around the city. I was expecting it to be noisy since it is CBD but it was very quiet and had a good night sleep. The central train station was just 5mins walk and shopping place was so close by I will certainly come back here again
