Royal Exhibition Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good location close/across to access central station. Great value for the money. Would stay again.

Had an overnight layover and this hotel was fantastic. Across the street from the Central train station, but the room was quiet. Also clean and spacious. I'd stay here again.

The hotel is located in front of the central station, convenient to travel or walk around Sydney. The staff at the bar, where you check in, are friendly and helpful. On improvement points, cleanliness of the room should be improved. I found cockroach running in the room. The hotel hires Chinese housekeeps who look like students. They were also noisy talking in the corridor. They only change towels but never tidy up the bed, so whatever the bed looks like when you left in the morning, will look the same when you come back.
