This is the first hotel I have found in Sydney that doesn't take a holding fee or a booking fee. I paid upfront and got my room straight away. The room was clean, the staff were ultra friendly and the hotel is in a good location, close to central station and the city. Everything is within walking distance. I will... More

Friendly staff at the reception who explained clearly how we could get to the room. But since the hotel didn't have a lift, it will be better if they offered to help us with our luggages to the room. Room was in good condition.

The staff were very friendly and any issues we had were dealt with in a timely manner. Our room was clean but we did feel like it was in need of a bathroom spruce up! Good location, handy to cabs and shops.

I am very happy with the stay. The staff were helpful and allowed me to leave bags and return after the expo. I was also able to have some packages pre-delivered to the hotel that I needed for the expo.

I have stayed at the Central Railway Hotel before, but only for 2 nights. This time I stayed 7. The rooms are clean and very studio-like apartments. There are different lay-outs depending on the number of people staying. The staff are friendly,helpful and informative, and most pleasant to deal with. 5 minutes walk to Central Station,, cafes, eateries and pubs... More

The hotel was close to Central Station (5 mins walk). Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The cost was great value for a location so close to the city centre. We were there during Sydney's recent freak storm. Rain came into our third floor room under the door, which also banged throughout the night due... More
