Russell Hotel is a great place to stay to explore Sydney. it is well suited to the tourist who is looking for reasonably priced accommodation with some character. The rooms are individually decorated in an English country house style, tastefully so without being too twee or prissy. Bathrooms have been modernised and work well. Parking is available right next door at a reasonable flat rate. This is not a trendy designer boutique hotel if that is what you are looking for but it is charming, comfortable and a very pleasant environment to spend some time in.

We loved this place. Easy walking distance from the train from the airport (we were so happy to not have to take a taxi or to try to navigate Sydney with a car), a street away from the Harbor, and a pleasant walk to the Opera House--fantastic! The rooms are all different and full of character. In fact, my mother-in-law and father-in-law liked it so much that they booked it for their return night the following month on their way back from New Zealand. And all at a decent price, considering the location!

We so enjoyed our stay at The Russell because of the great location, convenient for trains, ferrys, restaurants. Also so great to explore this wonderfully historic area of Sydney. The quaintness of the hotel also makes it a welcome change from the many new and characterless hotels around.

Quirky old hotel with the best staff (especially Maxine) Creaky floor boards and a ghost but very clean and very comfy. loved the little "sleep" quotes on the pillow ever night plus a chocolate. Had to change rooms as the shower/ toilet and issues but so quick and effortless to change. Parts of it were a bit more shabby then chic but loved it overall. Excellent location for buses, trains and ferries. The Opera House and Bridge are literally on the doorstep. Free bus down George Street to every type of shopping experience from designer to high street, paddy's market to Westfield Mall. Nice that breakfast was included in the price- loved the fruit bread!

Room Tip: Third floor was quieter than the 2nd floor

Highly professional, and very polite service. The room was excellent, very clean and cozy. If you are looking for a hotel with a difference, this is an extremely comfortable hotel, in an excellent position. Next time I'm in Sydney, this is definitely the one I'm coming back to!

Room Tip: Front rooms have an excellent view.
