Central Business District, Sydney, Australia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient location in the Central Business District, within walking distance of Town Hall
  • Stylish rooms with plenty of character
  • Decor includes crisp white bedding and whimsical prints
  • Mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs, and electric kettles in all rooms
  • Inviting guest lounge with couches, kitchenette, and computers
  • Bathrooms with stall showers and rainforest showerheads
  • Historic building

Cons

  • Fee for internet
  • Rooms are small and windows face another hotel
  • Some complaints about noise from downstairs nightclub
  • No bathtubs or coffeemakers

Bottom Line

Located on the fringe of the Chinatown district, this upper-middle-range, 72-room boutique has a historic facade and modern interiors. Each of the 68 rooms are small but clean and filled with character; they feature crisp white bedding, whimsical prints, and flat-screen TVs. Sleek bathrooms offer stall showers complete with rainforest showerheads. One big perk here is the guest lounge with comfy seating, a small kitchenette, computers for guest use, vending machines, and laundry facilities. It's a small property, so guests shouldn't expect much else in the way of amenities.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the Central Business District, within walking distance of Chinatown and Town Hall

Pensione Hotel is just outside of Chinatown in the central business district of Sydney. It is within walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants, and several popular sights. An extra bonus about the location is the fact that the George Street free shuttle going to Sydney Harbour picks up just outside the door.

Sydney is Australia's most populous city and its cultural hub. Festivals, theater, fashion, and a famous opera house can all be found here, along with the retail and restaurants that naturally accompany them. The weather is excellent, with an average of 300 sunny days a year, and beaches are within a short drive from the city center.

  • 19-minute drive to Sydney Airport
  • 8-minute walk to Town Hall
  • 10-minute walk to the Queen Victoria building
  • 10-minute walk to The Galeries Victoria shopping center
  • 12-minute walk to Cockle Bay Wharf
  • 15-minute walk to the Sydney Aquarium
  • 4-minute drive to Darling Harbor for clubbing
  • 8-minute drive to the Rocks Market for kitschy trinkets and souvenirs
  • 8-minute drive to Circular Quay, historically the shipping heart of Sydney, now a recreational space with ferry
  • 8-minute drive to the Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 10-minute drive to Oxford Street for Sydney's gay scene
  • 10-minute drive to Sydney Harbor Bridge
  • 11-minute drive to Sydney Opera House
  • 18-minute drive to Tamarama Beach (premium territory for serious surfers)
  • 18-minute drive to Bondi Beach
  • 19-minute drive Bronte Beach for family-centric beach time
  • 47-minute drive to Botany Bay National Park

 Bottom Line

Each of the 68 rooms are small but clean and filled with character; they feature crisp white bedding, whimsical prints, and flat-screen TVs.
