Review of City Hotel Sydney (Now: BreakFree On Clarence Sydney)

It was indeed a challenge to look for a hotel with maximum AUD 100 per night at Sydney CBD, especially during the Vivid Sydney festival. As always, I searched for a hotel via where I came across a budget hotel called City Hotel Sydney. At the moment, the hotel is changed to Breakfree on Clarence Sydney.

When I further read the review on tripadvisor, I was very sure that this hotel was "the one". 5 minutes to Queen Victoria Building which is linked with the Town Hall train station, 5 minutes to Darling Harbour (from Market Street), and it has an en suite bathroom. Other than that, the room price is AUD 109 per night, with a "pay later and free cancellation" option.

Located on CBD, this hotel is recommended

The lobby was very compact, but the good thing was, the reception staff were very helpful. The staff will be at the reception desk until midnight. If we come to the hotel after midnight, we were advised to open the entrance with our room key.

Our room was a standard room located on the 2nd floor. When we exit the lift and walked to our room, we were surprised to find a living room in the middle of the second floor.

We were also surprised with our room, it is very comfortable and has a decent size by Sydney standard.

The hotel was really close to everything. If you are looking for a budget hotel in Sydney, this hotel was beyond my expectation. Really recommended.
