we traveled as a family and the room was perfect for 4 people. The kids loved the little mints. The rooms were very well made up, presentable and clean. we were very pleased we could access the underground secure parking by booking ahead. finding the access to the underground parking was a bit tricky, i recommend calling ahead for directions.

Definately stay there again. Close to city and all public transport, shops and hotels. Very friendly helpful staff and nice comfortable rooms. They let us stay in the courtyard until our flight left..

Wonderful reception by the staff. Car parking needs to be arranged beforehand - which we did, and had no problems. Only real gotcha, is that the location is on a one way street, and you need to plan for that.

Our stay at Central Railway is pleasant especially with a very helpful and friendly receptionist, Virginia. The hotel room is spacious, near bus stop and walking distance to Cental Station. The location is near Alfred Park and Surry Hills. There are cafes and restaurants near the hotel.We will definitely recommend this place.
