Good location for a busy holiday in Sydney Room comfortable for family. Good parking for cars. Check in was a breeze. Nothing was too much for staff to assist us will our needs. Would recommend Central Railway Hotel as close to train station so car can stay put in car park.

Central Railway Hotel was a great place to stay in Sydney. Ten mins walk to Central station from which all excursions can be planned. We stayed in a quad studio which was "cosy" maybe a little cramped but exceptional value for money and we weren't there except to sleep. Very clean, very friendly and helpful staff.

Great Location great staff, lovely room felt really welcoming from start. even though it is on a busy street the road noise is minimal. Really well priced and great location for where we needed to be A+++

If you are looking for a small hotel with cleanly and big room, suitable for family, not far from central station you can walk in 10-15 mins. Easy to take the public bus or taxi. But the room price is a bit high.

Have stayed here before. The hotel is value for money. Convenient location that is close to the city centre. Excellent staff who were knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. Secure car parking is a bonus.

Simple rooms and good location. Near bus and train stations, Woolworths and parks. Very friendly reception. Easy check in and check out. The rooms have a small kitchen with toaster, microwave and hot water boiler which were very convenient. The rooms also have a balcony facing the street which was nice. There's also a coffee machine and free water in the common area.

We were 4 friends sharing a room. It was a bit small but it's clean and not so far from the centre. Staff is very friendly and useful. We had a rental car and could pay for a parking inside the garage. That was a good point.

Great position, clean and basic accommodation. Has everything we required on a budget. Reception staff are wonderfully helpful and cheerful. Would recommend to others with no hesitation. Within walking distance of Woolies, Central Station and includes free gym access. Great roomy courtyard with comfortable outdoor furniture and a coin operated espresso machine. Thank you for our week in your hotel..

Great location, on site parking available, great knowledge of the local area for where to eat and also travel time to other areas. The staff here made our girls weekend away much easier! Very close to central station and Chinatown as well which was a big plus! Would definitely stay here again! Is on a busy road so if your not used to hearing cars and motorbikes early in the morning might not be your cup of tea but it's a sacrifice I was willing to make for the excellent location close to the city!

We stayed here 2 nights . Friendly and helpful staff . Good value. spacious room with comfort bed ,sofa, sink , kitchenette (dishes, knife,fork , spoon,glass) Microwave , electrical kettle, refrigerator.... iron & ironing facilities. TV .alarm clock.small balcony . they offer Airport shuttle 15AUD per person. on time . 10 min walk to Redfern Station and 20 min walk to central . safe area at nights. But : Ac dose not work well, ironing desk was broken .hot water and shower had not good water pressure .and all the night noise of cars and street was disturbing. will stay again.
