Central Station Hotel
Ranked #81 of 178 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights after a last-minute booking to Sydney. It was closely located to the train station which was important for us as we did not have any other means of transport. The rooms given to us were very small but the beds were comfortable. Free wi-fi was also provided, but the speed was just below average. As for the staff, they were the pinnacle for our comfort. The blonde-haired lady at the reception (can't remember her name) was extremely friendly! She could answer all of our questions without hesitation which includes advice on meals and places to go. Will definitely consider this place in the coming light...

The hotel was comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a bit too small, but clean and modern also the bed was good. My wife and I were in Sydney to see "The Lion King" at the Capitol, so this hotel was very close to the theatre and walking distance to Central Station. We were also able to leave our luggage all day after checking out at no cost, which was most pleasing, as some city hotels charge for storage. The wi-fi was free, which was also a good thing.

It was so close to the train and a very short walk to shopping centre and loads of Restaruants. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and modern.

Room was a little small but is fine if you are going to be out most of the day.

I have never stop in a queen deluxe that has been so small, I would hate to see the shoebox rooms, or for that matter a standard queen. The size of the room made the stay extremely uncomfortable as there was no where really to put our suit cases, and no mirror in the room for the convenience of getting ready to go out only a small mirror in the bathroom, that would fog up when someone was in the shower, and the bathroom floor got very wet from a poorly designed shower screen that allowed water to leek onto the floor. I am sorry I would not stay here
again, but maybe for a single guy looking for a room it may be ok but I don't think it is good value, I personally would spend a bit more and get a larger more comfortable room.

I booked my stay in the Central Station Station Hotel based on its ideal location and impressive looking room photos. Upon arriving the room itself was as others have already said here; a tad on the small side for the regular rates, but clean and nicely furnished.

The main negative for myself was the bed; given I was staying in a King Deluxe Room I didn't really expect to have any problems with the size, so was rather disappointed to find that while the bed was quite wide, it was inadequate length for a 6ft bloke like myself. Also for my tastes the mattress was much firmer than i'm used to - but this is subjective.

The staff were friendly, and my stay was positive overall, but I was left with a feeling that I could have chosen better. I will likely look at other options for next time I stay in the area.

The staff were excellent and the rooms spotless and serviced thoroughly. However, our room was extremely cramped and the bed was way too firm for our liking. There was no room for two people to stand and the only place to sit other than the bed was an un-upholstered metal stool. The desk was too small to work at. We will not stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a large, internal facing room on the top floor and don't stay here if you have health pr...

Thank you for taking the time to review Central Station Hotel. I was pleased to read your positive comments regarding the cleanliness of your room and the service you received from our staff. I will be sure to pass your comments on to our staff. They are always happy to receive positive feedback. Your comfort is our number one concern and it is disappointing that we were not able to provide you with a comfortable stay on this occasion. The bedding is brand new, this may be why you found the mattress to be too firm. I hope we get another opportunity to serve you in the future.

I did enjoy my stay although the rooms were tiny I had ordered the triple deluxe room and we could barely walk to our beds let alone have space to put our luggage I had to leave mine on my bed most of the time which was a major disappointment. The location is great though and the staff were amazing I'm just not sure if I would want to pay that much for a room I could barely move in.
