Central Railway Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was disappointing. We stayed in Room 10 and the shower door was broken, the vanity drawer was broken and the handle in the drawer. It is hard for guests to pay money and put up with such sloppiness. The walk to the nearest Railway is 10-15 mins - on a hot day with cases that is difficult. The patrons do not run a pick up service as is stated. The hotel maids do a good job with such dilapidation.

we arrived early, but they were able to put us in a room with different beds than requested (3 twins instead of double and twin). Room had refrigerator and microwave. Good location within easy walking distance to the Central Railway Station, but it is not right near it (as name seems to imply). room was clean; but the screen on the window was broken so we had some mosquitoes and flies when we opened the windows food available nearby, but not at the hotel

The hotel was good for the price, short distance walk to the train station. The internet was available, but not free. The stuff was helpful.

Very nice Friendly and helpful staff 5 minute walk to the train station

The room and bathroom were wonderful--and the location, only a few blocks from the Railway Station, was convenient. I'm not sure I'd have been comfortable walking from the train station to the hotel by myself late at night, though I did see single females walking there--I was happy to have my husband by my side. The staff was most helpful in terms of bus routes, inexpensive ways to tour the city, and other recommendations for tourists.
