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.

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.

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..
