Welcome to the neighbourhood

If there is one thing we are most proud of, it’s our amazing location. When staying at Veriu Central you are literally on the doorstep of the ‘real’ Sydney, the one that locals love. Surry Hills cafés and bars are a matter of metres away. Darling Harbour is a simple stroll and the Capitol Theatre but a stone’s throw. Pitt St Mall is a 10-minute walk, Chinatown is around the corner and Central Station is basically at our front door. Whatever the reason for your stay, there is something waiting for everyone, just a few moments away.
