                    the comfort of the room, the fact that there was a little kitchen in the apartment, the availibility of the front desk staff

                    the lobby of the hotel, the hotel is well located but you nevertheless ask yourself if you are in Australia or in China ..otherwise, satisfied

                    The rooms were quite reasonable and the staff were friendly and very accommodating.

                    The room my family was allocated was room 111. We did not manage to get any sleep the night we stayed due to the extreme noise from the street below ( nightclub next door and traffic) and the lack of glazing on the windows to help reduce the noise levels. I would not stay in the Breakfree on George again purely for this reas on, which is a shame as the location and quality of service was great. I am extemely dissapointed with the stay as we had guests from the UK with us and with the lack of decent sleep took the shine off the weekend we had planned for some time.

                    all was good for me

                    Movie channels on the foxtel would be good rather than having to pay for later movies, not all adults want to watch disney channels only, or sport.

                    it was clean and tidy.

                    the toilet leaked/ran all night, the alarm clock made a buzzing noise (and yes I checked that the alarm and radio were off) so I had to unplug it from the wall, the microwave sparked when re-heating a bowl of soup and the lock on the back of the door as held on the door with one screw so it wasn't strong enough to hold the door shut if opened from the outside.

                    Location of hotel is perfect, price for stay was perfect, room was perfect. Totally enjoyed the whole experience and have told friends and family about accomodation. The female staff member, Nuch was just lovely. She was very professional and helpful and made our experience enjoyable.

                    - checked in early at 10:30a.m. - helpful staff, giving detailed travel info - clean and neat room - noise level was okay (as though the hotel is located on a busy street), having quite a good rest at night - key card access after 10p.m.

                    Had a problemwith water leakage in the bathroom that was not fixed in three days but they did credit one night for the inconvenience.

                    I was a bit annoyed that when we went to check out they told us we still owed $80 on the account. I had spokent o a guy over the phone through Booked.net and he said he would be taking the full amount out a week before!!!

                    Convenience of location, friendly staff.

                    Awful smell ( akin to sewerage) in the lift and corridors.

                    We were in Sydney prior to departing on a Cruise - after departing on a very early flight from Adelaide we were looking forward to a good nights sleep but could not believe the noise coming in from our room from George Street. We were very disappointed with the quality of bedding no extra blankets during winter and pillows that were broken and lumpy. We gave up trying to get through to reception during the night to ask for blankets. Overall we were very disappointed.

                    A good location for good and shopping.

                    The lobby is too small, clumsy and disorder. I was surprised when I arrived. So, I cancelled the following bookings and immediately booked another nights in "Meriton on Kent" serviced apartment with nearly the same amount but the "class" and environment is much much more better than Breakfree on Geroge. I rated it is not value for money. The price should be cheaper with the lobby, room conditions and room size.

                    The rooms were very warm and comfortable

                    During my stay there were a few incidents that were not handled properly by staff. First of all there was a full on party in the room next door at 4 in the morning, the security staff called to the room in question and told them that my room number had complained and after giving them one chance, threw them out. I felt it was not necessary to tell these people who had complained. A few hours later at 730 in the morning there was more commotion coming from one of the neighbouring rooms. The hotel staff were breaking down the door of one of the rooms as the key would not work and the guests needed to get into their room to get their bags and check out. I have never experienced anything like this in all the places I have stayed in. I complained to the hotel but got nowhere.
