If your use to staying at the Hilton, need a gym, pool, television, then the Russel is not for you. If however you like character, charm and being right in the rocks, then the Russels got you covered. The Location is fanstastic. We got the train from the airport to Circular Quay and walked to 2 minutes to the hotel.
We booked a standard room, and though it was small, it had everything we needed; comfy bed, tastefully decorated, tea and coffee making facilities, robes, no telly- but your in the rocks, so get amongst it! We had a shared bathroom that was across the hall, which was immaculate, and I didnt see another person ever use it.
We used the roof top bar every afternoon for drinks which was nice.
Breakfast was good, continental; toast, crossiants, cereals, fruit, yogurt and boiled eggs etc.
We also had drinks at the Fortune of War downstairs, which allowed us to charge drinks up to our room(beware!) and had a great atmosphere.
We will be back for sure :)
