The Russell has an unbeatable location: at the edge of The Rocks district, right across the street from Sydney Harbour at Circular Quay, about 2 minutes from most bus and train lines and approximately an 8-minute walk to the opera house. Rooms are small but comfortable (and every one is different in shape etc., as this is a lovely old building); staff are friendly; an extensive continental breakfast is included in the room rate. The hotel itself has a nice wine bar, and there is a wide variety of restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance. A visitors' information centre is only a couple of blocks away, on Argyle St. If you want atmosphere and "difference", in an ideal location, this is the place for you, but not if you expect all the space and convenience of a modern building. Warning: if stairs give you problems, tell the hotel when you book, as for some of the rooms one has to go up or down a few stairs; and the hot water in the evening can be a bit erratic. Also the (free) laptop access in the lobby is extremely slow; go instead to the EZ Mart a couple of blocks away, on Argyle St., which has internet available at (for Australia) reasonable prices.
