Comfortable Sydney stay

Breakfree on George is a comfortable hotel close to most of Sydney's attractions. 20 min walk to circular Quay, 10 min to Darling harbour etc. and the free shuttle bus stops right out the front. Right near china town and Pattys market. We were a party of two couples and this served us well. It made our pre cruise stay in Sydney of 4 days affordable.

Accommodating hotel

Though I purchased the Queen Studio package, hotel was willing to let me swap rooms with 2 single size beds, with no extra charges. Bath mats were not provided for the first 2 consecutive nights. Hotel is located next to Chinatown and 10-minute walk to Darling Harbour. It's also a 7-minute walk to Central Station which is great. Front desk staff and supervisor were very helpful and friendly, like providing road/transport directions to Bondi beach.

A very comfortable apartment overall, however, the dining chairs are heavy and low to the table. Love having a balcony to get out into the fresh air.

Noisy room in the early morning due to businesses preparing for the day. Great location if you like Thai food.

Great location but oh my the walls!

The location was great, staff were friendly and the room was clean apart from the dirtiest walls I have ever seen. The corridors of the hotel looked like they had been painted recently but when I stepped into the room I thought whoa! I tried different lights on and off to see if I could hide it to no avail. After speaking to staff they changed my room. The new room was nearly as bad. Rather than complain again I just put up with it but thought I won't be back..

Awesome location

Awesome location for attending events at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. Parking is problematic - got caught and paid way too much to park at Market City. Apparently the recommended parking for this hotel is at the Capitol Theatre but I only found this out when I checked out.

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.
