My husband and I stayed at Central Railway for a few days between cheristas and New Years. The location is great! Only 2.5 miles from The Opera House and About 1 mile from darling Harbour. There are two metro/train/tram stations near by, within 5-10 minutes of walk. The staff was extremely helpful and made sure to pin us in the right direction when we needed. There is parking underneath the hotel, where we left our rental for most of our stay since everything is so easy to get to. Great place

One Asian guy is very unfriendly, incompetent and not helpful. The other staff is nice and helpful. We had a cockroaches in our room. That's nothing special in Australia, but one can avoid them with effective pest control. Facilities are clean and modern. The 4 bed room is too small, as it is a two bedroom with sofa-sleeper. The value for money is therefore ok. The couch area in the interior courtyard is nice.
