An amazing greeting and informative with what to do and where to go. Comfortable bed was so good I opted for a sleep in rather than the complimentary breakfast. Asked for their card and will probably use The Russel Hotel as a base for my next planned visit. thanks guys

Quaint hotel located in The Rocks, Sydney. Location was absolutely perfect for my needs, spacious room and friendly staff. Nice hearty breakfast included, and later than standard checkout. Enjoyed the stay, and would stay again. Only downside is that renovations were / are taking place, so was woken early to the sound of stone masons next door! But enjoyed the stay.

Great boutique hotel and location couldn't be better. Rooms were large and recently undergoing refurb. Don't take a room facing George Street unless you are a great sleeper because the noise is there until well into the AM hours. Good deals through Hotel Club but otherwise expensive.

Reception staff were most helpful and welcoming, the room clean and adequate. Dining room staff much less welcoming and in fact ended my experience at the hotel on a low note

I was looking for a "quaint" hotel but unfortunately the Russell Hotel was a disappointment with creaking floorboards, old furnishings, a broken window - really just an old, run-down hotel in need of refurbishing. The staff were wonderful however - obliging and helpful. The location was marvellous - so close to everything I wanted for the weekend.

Wilson parking adjacent to hotel charged $55.00 instead of $25.00 per 24hrs as quoted by hotel. Will follow up with Wilson.

Only issue with the Russell is where the reception is located. There is no lift or alternative access to the hotel. The stairs are very narrow and slightly off putting on first encounter but other than that it is a very nice, centrally located hotel. I was well looked after.

Great place to stay, this hotel has a lot of old world character, and the central location is about as good as you can get. The staff were all friendly and really helpful. I would definitely recommend staying at the Russell Hotel.

Great location for the Rocks and Circular Quay. Free internet access for 15 minutes at a time was very handy. Clean "old fashioned" bedrooms with creaky floors and stairs. Having breakfast included was also a bonus. Make sure you get a room with your own bathroom, not a shared bathroom.

A delightful hotel in the best spot in Sydney. Pleasant helpful staff.The lack of air conditioning made the room warm on a hot summers day but the easy access to all Sydney harbour locations and great restaurants more than made up for that. Breakfast was lovely. A good price for such a central location.
