Very surprised by this hidden gem! ”

Blink and you’ll miss Breakfree on George, however this is a very impressive hotel nestled in the busy streets of Sydney’s central area. We stayed for two nights and were surprised with large rooms, apartment type facilities (e.g. kitchen and laundry) and really enjoyed the close proximity to all of Sydney. The benefit of being so close to Chinatown means there is no end to the tasty, fast and cheap eats around! We walked between the hotel and Darling Harbour, Oxford and Pitt street, although public transport is nearby it is certainly optional.

Lovely and basic hotel in a fantastic location”

This hotel was no frills but it had everything we needed. We didn't come to swim in a pool or receive room service, so if you are looking for that look elsewhere. Our 1 bedroom family suite housed 2 Adults and 3 Tweens, with an additional bed provided. I loved that the hotel also ensured we had 5 cups, glasses and towels to accomodate extra person. Conveniently located on George St, opposite Campbell St and also backing onto Sussex St, we loved exploring the city. China Town for brekky was just outside the Sussex St door. Within very short distances additional to China Town there is also Paddys Market, Powerhouse Museum, Capitol Theatre, Entertsinment Centre, Darling Harbour and lots of choices for eating and other conveniences, like a $12 haircut. If you are happy to walk, you will be able to walk everywhere, there is an incline into the city. Otherwise there are buses, taxis, light rail close by for local area down there, you can walk to Central station easily as well as Museum and Town Hall stations (if you want a train to Circular Quay). The hotel and our rooms were clean and housekeeping provided. Our room had 2 bathrooms which was a great bonus for a family of 5. There were 3 lifts so not waiting for long. We were given a very early check in, which we appreciated and paid $20 for a late check out, which was awesome too. Another plus for us was that with our room facing inwards, yes it meant view of building but it also meant next to no street noise for a sound sleep on the comfy beds. All in all, I would recommend this for families who want to explore Sydney. Being on the outskirts of the inner city meant that we saw more than we planned. My family loves eating do bring so close to China Town and everything it offers was a definite plus for us.

Room size, location, proximity to transport

this was our second stay at breakfree on george and we definitely wouldn't look to go anywhere else in sydney. the rooms are extremely spacious and well appointed and are completely self-contained. the location, right next to chinatown and close to either central or town hall stations is ideal and there are buses right outside the door that go to circular quay. just across the road you can catch the tram to inner suburbs such as glebe which has a great choice of restaurants.

Awesome Stay”

Location, Lovely City View, Comfy beds

Our stay was pleasant. We arrived early and decided to drop our luggage first so we can go around the city. Once we go back into our room they already put our luggage inside the room. Great service. We booked 2-bedroom apartment and Queen room. The rooms were clean and quite spacey. They even have a balcony. Luckily we stay in high floor and we served with Beautiful view of the city from the apartment. The apartment filled with kitchen set, refrigerator, washing machine and dryer, sofa and dining table. It’s really convenient since we stayed for 5 nights and had to wash our clothes. One of the best things is Location! It’s located right in the center of the city, George Street to be exact. They have everything around the area such as Starbucks coffee, pharmacies, World Square mall, Capitol Theater, Bars and pubs, food stalls, Town hall, Queen Victoria building, Darling Harbour, Westfield mall, etc. If you are Asian, this hotel is a plus cause it’s right besides Chinatown and Paddy’s Market. You can get great and affordable souvenirs to bring back home. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Location is great. Clean rooms and great view. Everything is wonderful. I would recommend for traveller who first time come to Sydney.

Close proximity to several tourist attractions”

Proximity to China Town, Market City, Darling Harbour, Sydney Central. Good security. Surrounded by eateries.

Walking distance from Sydney Central from where many local tours start, half an hour to Sydney International airport, the hotel is conveniently located near to China Town(short walk from Sussex Street entrance) and Market City, and a little bit further to Darling Harbour. The 555 bus to Circular Quay is to be relocated from October. But supermarkets and City shopping area is a further walk away. There is no lack of food choices nearby. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant. The reception counter was well and efficiently manned by helpful staff. No problem in getting to the airport through their help. We had 2 open plan family rooms for 4 persons. The one facing Sussex Street had a bigger living area with a sofa bed for an extra person, if required. A kitchenette in the living area, but no pots or pans for cooking. They do have a microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge plus crockery, etc. I wonder why toothbrush and toothpaste were not provided. Daily housekeeping. The place is a bit aged, but still comfortable and adequate. On the whole, since we got the sale price, it was value for money.

Great location and comfort”

Clean room, comfortable bed, and a 2 minute walk to the middle of Chinatown.

Although it is the first hotel I have ever stayed at where no staff take your bags to your room, the lifts were easily accessible making it easy. Check in and check out was fast, however, you do need to have photo ID of the person who made the booking. There is no mini bar snacks at hand and although there were cooking facilities, utensils were lacking. With Chinatown so close, you do not need to cook. A short walk will take you down to the Chinese Gardens in Darling Harbour. East access for public transport. Loved this hotel and will be back.

A most enjoyable 2 night stay”

We stayed 2 nights, Thurs and Fri night. Check in was easy with super friendly reception. We had booked a queen room. On entering the room which looked fine, we realised that the bed would not be big enough for us(it didn't look like a queen). A quick phone call ensued and straight away the very nice deputy manager moved us to another room with a king bed, getting a free upgrade! I couldn't thank them enough. The room was large, clean and had a great view. The location in Chinatown is amazing, close to everything. The price was also very reasonable at $125 a night. The only negative, which is very minor , was the smell of what I describe as Asian 2 minute noodles in the lobby.

Quite spacious”

Hotels in Sydney CBD area are too pricey. This could be the best deal we could get. We stayed in a studio apartment topped up with additional bed so that 4 adults and the 2 kids could have more space. It has a small kitchen top and a small dining area, which is nice when we bring food back. Balcony has no view. It's next to Chinatown and a turn to Market City (buy your souvenirs here!). Starbucks & 7-11 right opposite the street. Two pharmacy nearby. Love the light rail which is 2 minutes walk away. Getting to Central station, Fish Market and Darling Habour is easy (via Light Rail) if you prefer not to walk that much. The room has 2 bathrooms, clean. We arrived at 1pm and our room was not ready. Left the bags and luggages with the hotel staff and when we returned, we just need to collect the keys and our bags are in our rooms already. The hotel provided some mini cards in their foyer. We used the one which got us 10% discount at Taronga Zoo.
