Across the street from Central Station
Posted Jan 30, 2017
The Royal Exhibition Hotel sits above a bar just across the street from Sydney's Central Station. The location makes it easy to get anywhere in the Sydney metro area. Bus stops surround the station, and the train to the airport is a 10min ride (but will cost you $17 on an OPAL card). Hotel staff (found at the bar) are extremely helpful and friendly! Kitchen at the bar closes at 9pm, but they helped me find places nearby that were still open after my late arrival. Rooms are outdated, but bathrooms have been updated. Soundproofing is not so great, but you couldn't hear any sounds from the bar up on the 2nd floor. Not much by way of too many amenities, but the location and staff more than make up for it. I would consider staying here again, for sure!
