Good location since near public transportation specially train. It was very good for stay specially for business. The front desk officer is really kind, so it makes feel at home. The price is very competitive specially when we booking in the same day we just arrived at Sydney.

I booked this place on the location and recommendation from the websites and I was not disappointed. The beds were very comfortable and the towels were in abundance we could have had three showers each a day if needed. Very handy for the main train station and the bus stops across the road.

The rooms were great, the front desk staff were helpful and friendly. Location is an easy walk from Central station. Sleep quality was reduced by light spill into the room and noise from other guests out at the vending machine until late and in the early morning.

Close to Redfern train station. The room was functional and as I expected. More maintenance would have made the room better. There were two power points that were broken. The bed was comfortable and the room was air-conditioned.

The overall room may not look new but the beds are comfortable and toilet is clean. The 2-seater sofa is made of steel and the edges can be sharp. Though there is a pvc cover protecting the armrest, the corner of the armrest aren't protected..

We recently spent a week at the Central Railway Hotel. The rooms we're small but very clean and equipped with kitchenette, mini fridge and microwave. The location cannot be beat if you plan on using public transportation as there only a few blocks from the central railway station. There's plenty of pubs and restaurants also within a few blocks and...

first look said we were miles from anywhere.. Not True, the place is a short walk to chinatown and other Sydney areas. There are excellent cheap restaurants nearby (4 min walk) and the hotel is in a quiet street off the main roads . easy drive to airport avoiding toll roads
