Pleasantly Surprised

Posted Apr 18, 2015
We needed a room for a few nights. This hotel came up with a very good price. We decided to chance it. Iam glad we did. Its a great location to Central Station and an easy 20 minute walk downtown through the fabulous Hyde Park. The room was updated but definitely very small. It worked for us because we needed the room to sleep and shower. It was clean and the room we had was quiet. The Chinese restaurant next door had great service and good food. I would definitely recommend it.

Good location

Posted Apr 8, 2015
I booked a very small room at a good price, so I was not expecting anything great. But it served it's purpose, and it is within walking distance of Central Station, which puts transportation at your fingertips. The Hop on Hop Off bus loads right there at Central Station too. There is a charming French cafe close-by on the corner.

Nice choice I had made for my first visit to AUS

Posted Apr 8, 2015
Pros: Helpful staff & location
Cons: The cleanness of hotel, I found the tray where the cups placing on was a little bit dusty...
It was really good to accommodate the station of Centre which made sightseeing places accessible. The staff were really nice and helpful. Recommend it!

Very Small Room.

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Pros:
Cons: Very small wash basin in bathroom - impossible to use without water spilling onto you and the floor. Poor TV reception - distorted pictures on most
Location: Handy location for Central Railway Station.
Booking in as an Expedia Customer I expected it to be more streamlined however I was still required to complete a 'booking application' . I readily provided my Expedia print-out and Driver's Licence as ID however I was told by Reception that they would require a photocopy of my Driver's Licence. I refused to allow a photocopy of my Licence stating that they have sighted and recorded my Licence Number however they insisted that it is 'Hotel Policy' and would not proceed with the booking unless they could photocopy my Licence. To allow the booking to proceed without having my D/L photocopied I offered to pay for the accommodation upfront - this was quickly accepted. $219 plus 2% Credit Card Usage Fee for one nights accommodation.

Close to Central Station

Posted Apr 1, 2015
Room was very small, but I was expecting this as this was shown in the pictures of the hotel when I booked it so not disappointed. I picked the Central Hotel as it was very close the railway station as I had travelled from Perth on the Indian Pacfic train service, and was leaving the next morning to fly to Alice Springs. I arrived at 11:30 am but the room was not available as check-in is normally 2:00pm, but was able to sign the paper work so just had to collect the room key later and was able to have my bags locked away so just took my camera with me as I had booked the hop on - hop off city bus tour and return to the hotel early evening picked up my luggage and room key before going for something to eat.

Nice hotel, very convenient to get to the trains

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: Clean modern rooms
Cons: More towel rails and shelving in the bathroom - nowhere to put personnel stuff. Television could do with a check-up - very bad connection.
Location: With-in walking distance (10/20 mins) of most of Sydney's highlights - Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Hyde Park, CBD etc. Great for train to airport.
Nice hotel - basic, modern and clean with very helpful staff. Very convenient to get to the trains for easy transport to the centre of the airport.
