Clean comfy good rooms. Ask for the lower floor as there are no lifts. Our receptionist was very helpful and offered to help .Parking available at a price but make sure u know directions before u get there as the car park is a bit tricky to find as u have to go up a one way street.

We, three girls, staying in Central Railway Hotel for 3 night. The location is 500 metres far aways from the station.Our luggage is a little bit heavy,and we check in after 9pm. due to the late fight, the staff help us carry the luggages, and help us to check in. And the price is reasonable.

My friend and I spent two nights in this hotel... and it was beyond of my expectation, Wow.. Not only fresh and calm, but also feel at home with my own kitchen. You can walk to Central Station in 5 minutes...It was amazing, thank you!!!

Best place to stay in Sydney! Central on Railway is so convenient, minutes walk to best restaurants and city sites. As soon as I email a request for a room, I receive an instant reply. Virginia is always smiling and greets you with enthusiasm. Parking is secure and has easy access.

We arrived late at the Central Railway Hotel and were pleased to find friendly and helpful staff which we commented to each other is uncommon in Sydney where we have stayed before. We found the room had all the amenities and was clean and quiet. The pricing of our stay was also the best we could find so close to... More

Excellent location friendly staff lovely room. We have recommended your motel to my facebook friends as we were extremely pleased with the service that my daughter and my other family all received. You were all very considerate with us arriving on such an early flight. Thank you :)

It's small and mostly out of the way but was really happy with the stay. Some wheelchair access would've made it perfect. The hotel room was nice too, and even though the front desk isn't always available, they're quite pleasant.

Close to most things, staff lovely, rooms very clean (always like the smell of bleach). The only thing would be to do away with the shower door and part of the shower screen at front as a little too difficult to negotiate into the shower as a bit narrow, at the same time as trying to step into the bath....

Perfect spot for a quick night in Sydney. Easy check in with courteous staff and a very clean room with a very comfy bed. Very quiet inside the room considering the inner city location. Nice rain shower
