The staff at this service were incredibly helpful, courteous and caring. Absolutely faultless service (though note not staffed all night). The rooms comfortable and spacious. A covered outdoor meeting/sitting area, I think with BBQs was a lovely touch, with plates, knives, forks etc in cupboards in rooms (plus a microwave). A few things to note it is a few blocks...

The hotel is convenient to local amenities in Redfern and to public transport to get downtown quickly. The rooms are clean and neat with comfortable beds. Despite being at the front of the hotel, traffic noise was not a problem at night. We have enjoyed our stays and have recommended the Central Railway Hotel to friends visiting Sydney.

Location is 15 mins walk from central station, considered far as we have heavy luggages to move. And it was raining constantly, hence, it was a stretch. Staffs were helpful. Accomodation was great. Just that family studio we stayed in was on 4th story, we had a hard time carrying luggages up. Will be gd if theres lift. But staffs...

The two ladies who work at the reception desk are a joy to meet. They are happy, bubbly and very helpful. The hotel itself, though could use some improvement. All of the windows in my room were frosted, which means that I could not see out of them. I was sick while I was there and after three days of...

It is essential for older visitor with bigger luggage to have a ramp for raise entrance with flight of stairs. However, as mentioned it require some thinking as the entrance is located close to the pedestrian path...

I stayed here recently on my short break to Sydney. First of all, it's like a motel- rooms are basic, run down, and no lift. I can't believe this is even a 3 star to Australian standards. Comparing this to the UK/Europe it's no more than 2 stars. The pros: Lady at reception in the pink shirt was very friendly....

The hotel doesn't look great from the outside, so I was a bit worried when we first arrived. We got a very friendly welcome and were able to check in early which was great. The room was spacious and clean, and although the bathroom looked a but old and tired we had a very comfortable 5 day stay here.

A good place to stay in, but not as great as you could expect. The rooms are large and clean but the bathroom is smal and in need of a "refresh". The staff in the reception was very friendly and helped us to find our way.
