“It doesn't compare with Europe or the North American Stations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

It's old, in need of a major revamp, and looks down-at-heel or just plain seedy. It works efficiently, however, but lacks the amenities most European travellers, in particular, take for granted.

“Historic railway station”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is an old historic building with a lot of character. The replacement of steam locomotives with electric rail cars has taken away some of the charm of the station. There was an old funeral platform at the southern end of platform 1 but this has sadly slipped into disrepair.

“Confusing and difficult to negotiate.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Up and down stairs, with or without luggage, trying to work out which line you want - and I'm local - it'st not my favourite station.

“Central station”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Pretty station, that's where the positive comments end I'm afraid. Not somewhere you want to be at dark. A lot of shady characters. Hold on to your bags tight and be very aware of who's around you.
