Good location since near public transportation specially train. It was very good for stay specially for business. The front desk officer is really kind, so it makes feel at home. The price is very competitive specially when we booking in the same day we just arrived at Sydney.

I booked this place on the location and recommendation from the websites and I was not disappointed. The beds were very comfortable and the towels were in abundance we could have had three showers each a day if needed. Very handy for the main train station and the bus stops across the road.

The rooms were great, the front desk staff were helpful and friendly. Location is an easy walk from Central station. Sleep quality was reduced by light spill into the room and noise from other guests out at the vending machine until late and in the early morning.

Close to Redfern train station. The room was functional and as I expected. More maintenance would have made the room better. There were two power points that were broken. The bed was comfortable and the room was air-conditioned.

Nice location but hard to get back to by bus because of one way system had to go back to main station then transfer real was very noisey 10pm noise curfew not enforced still people socializing at 1.30 in morning and windows seemed very thin not shore if even glass could hear neighbouring building music etc.other than that it was good really clean and cosy.proberly wont stay again.

Central Railway Hotel is in a quaint neighbourhood and near (about 15 minutes walk) Central and Redfern Stations. There are some great slection of restaurants and woolworths close by. The room was clean and bed so comfortable. It has a kitchenette which has a sink, plates, cups, cutlery, dish washing liquid, tea towel, toaster, microwave, fridge and tea, cofee and milk. The fridge has a breakfast starter pack and juices which you can use and pay for. It is so well equipped and convenient to fix up a meal or a quick breakfast. There is a courtyard with tables and chairs to relax or share your meal with your family. The staff are super friendly and so accommodating. Our flight was delayed and we didn't arrive until 12:30am as the airport shuttle missed our drop off. The night duty staff was so kind to wait up for us to check us in. He even called us twice to check on us if we were ok finding our way to the hotel. We will definitely return to stay.

The overall room may not look new but the beds are comfortable and toilet is clean. The 2-seater sofa is made of steel and the edges can be sharp. Though there is a pvc cover protecting the armrest, the corner of the armrest aren't protected..

We recently spent a week at the Central Railway Hotel. The rooms we're small but very clean and equipped with kitchenette, mini fridge and microwave. The location cannot be beat if you plan on using public transportation as there only a few blocks from the central railway station. There's plenty of pubs and restaurants also within a few blocks and a grocery store within a 10 minute walk. I have to give a big shout out to Vinginia and Erasha at the front desk who went above and beyond assisting us with planning out our daily adventures. They also offer a complementary gym membership and access to a beautiful pool just down the street. Thanks for making our holiday in Australia a huge success!!! Greg

Pleasant stay in Sydney. Friendly staff. Good location. Quiet neighborhood. Room has a kitchenette and good tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast is offsite at a local café (Tapeo) that is very nice (excellent food with excellent service).

first look said we were miles from anywhere.. Not True, the place is a short walk to chinatown and other Sydney areas. There are excellent cheap restaurants nearby (4 min walk) and the hotel is in a quiet street off the main roads . easy drive to airport avoiding toll roads
