I arrived from Rome at 8pm. I caught the train to Central station. The hotel was a couple of minutes walk from Central station. My room was on third floor - up a few stairs as there was no lift but for the price $69.00 Australian per night this was OK. The room was at end of wide hall. The... More

Honestly it's not special. Pay the extra $40 to stay at the great southern hotel. The rooms are hit and miss. No a/c. Pretty basic. The stairs to level 3 Are a workout every time. Shared facilities was not clearly advertised. If you are In a pinch it would be ok. But you can do so much better for just... More

I booked to stay here for one night, read the terms and conditions - saw that if the booking was cancelled before 2 days then a full refund would be given. What I didn't read clearly was that the deposit is one nights accommodation. I am unable to travel on the date I had originally booked and have now lost... More

Rooms at this establishment are reasonably priced and well equipped, with own shower, fridge and computer. Bed was clean and comfortable. It is placed in an ideal location within a few minutes' walk from Central railway station. Reception staff are friendly and cooperative, even offering to carry my suitcase up to my room on an upper floor which is accessible... More

Central Private Hotel is just a short few minutes walk from Central Railway Station. It may not look like much from the outside, but it is private, secure and the staff are helpful and well mannered. For me, just going to Sydney for a day or 2 to visit with friends it is just what you want. Close to the... More

I stayed at this hotel and booked with the hotel`s website and found it was well situated with a 3 minute walk to every 5 minute trains from Central Railway Station for close shopping and ferries at Circular Quay in Sydney and buses outside the hotel with a nice hotel and eatery on corner. The hotel has a tourism booking... More

I stayed alone here for one night, and felt safe and comfortable. The beds were comfortable, the room came with a fan and a computer which was very handy for a traveler. The en suite bathroom was clean, and there was a fridge, and free wifi. I feel that this place is seriously underrated for the great location it is.... More

Arrived around around 4:00pm from Canberra. Office was locked and unattended. After climbing the stairs to look for concierge/ hotel clerk who wasn't in his room either, I rang the hotel on my phone. Concierge/ hotel clerk said he'd meet us in 15 mins. Room was spartan (and we pay for the deluxe twin with bathroom). Ripped the back of... More

I stayed here for one night. All I needed was a place to dump my bags, a bed and a shower. I got exactly that. Great location & friendly staff. The hotel had everything I needed at a reasonable price, I would definitely stay here again.
