I stayed at The Russell for three days in June 2014, when I took my mother here for her birthday. This is a charming, cosy and beautifully refurbished old building in The Rocks area, full of the personality and soul which is lacking in more modern concrete and steel structures. It is easily accessed on the direct line of the airport link train, with the train station at Circular Quay being only 5 minutes' walk from the hotel - so easy with luggage! The staff went out of their way to welcome us, and to assist and provide little 'extras', e.g. our room ready hours before the scheduled check-in time (which was so helpful when arriving after a fight), little chocolates on pillows, friendly chats in the corridor, extra help when I had printing problems with the boarding pass for my return fight, day-long luggage storage in the porter's room before my evening return flight, etc. Our room and en-suite were attractive, warm and very clean, and serviced daily with clean linen and towels. The beds were excellent. The included breakfast is quite satisfactory and a time-efficient, convenient start to a day's exploring of the historic locality. The location is picturesque and superb! There is so much to see; we were able to walk to everything we wanted to see, and there is always the free 555 City Shuttle bus stop nearby (opposite Circular Quay) if you get weary. There are plenty of small interesting shops, and local cafes, pubs and restaurants for coffee/meals. This hotel and the staff are just lovely! I will definitely choose this establishment again!
