Beautiful HotelPosted Sep 17, 2013
Pros: We loved the character of the hotel. A little like a bed and breakfast, but had all the amenities of a 5 star hotel and the staff. Lovely!
Cons: Nothing we could find to improve.
Location: Location was in the heart of Sydney Harbor. We were able to walk to the Sydney Bridge, walk to the Opera House, and take a cruise to Darling Harbor
We stayed 2 nights at the Russell Hotel and found is most pleasant. Our room was lovely and the staff was very helpful. The bed linens were so comfortable and it was nice to have a robe provided. The Hotel has a beautiful patio on the roof where we enjoyed a nice cocktail and view. Breakfast each morning was delightful and found it fun to watch the busy street out front. (breakfast is included) We enjoyed the true character of this hotel and would recommend this place to anyone!! We loved it! Wish we could of stayed longer!

The Russell Hotel, Sydney, Australia.Posted Sep 3, 2013
Pros: The room was charming, the staff were awesome, the location to the train from the airport was so conveinent and the breakfast was a nice treat.
Location: It is located in the area called 'The Rocks'. Within easy walking distance to the Opera House and Syndey Harbor Bridge. Very historic district.
We spent one night in Sydney on our way back to the US ( after having stayed in Tasmania for 10 days - awesome place) and wanted to stay somewhere centra. We wanted to find a place that was easily accessed via the airport train that would afford us the opportunity to sight-see in the vicinity. The Russell did just that. We were within walking distance to the Opera house, the Sydney Harbor bridge and there were many shops and cafes to visit. We would definitely stay there again.

great location and helpful staff - printed out boarding pass, later checkout. Would be nice to know where all the bathrooms are located ( which are shared) Heating issue. Could not find a powerpoint. Good continental breakfast. Computer without mouse took longer to use (but did not charge for use)

Very enjoyable, home-like feel.Posted Aug 24, 2013
Pros: Quaint. Right on the street - very enjoyable.
Cons: More hand towels in bathrooms.

Wonderful. I felt safe and welcomed. Although the bath was shared, it was not really a problem.

GREAT LOCATION!!!Posted Jul 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
The location was perfect. The reception desk was in a strange location in the middle of the hotel. Needs FREE WiFi!!!

Pleasantly surprisedPosted Jun 23, 2013
Cons: Breakfast service
Location: Didn't drive so don't know about parking, but easy to get a train to and it's at the rocks, what's not to like!
Very pleasantly surprised! For the price I didn't expect such a clean, modern, beautifully presented room. Manager on duty when I checked in was lovely even though I didn't arrive till 10.30pm. Have stayed at plenty of Accor properties in Sydney befor, but I think this will be my new place to stay.

Great value, charming hotel, lovely touchesPosted Jun 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
The very best location imaginable, historic hotel with quaint decor and a warm welcome - highly recommended. Lovely touches such as the high quality sheets, attentive housekeeping, chocolates and fresh towels everyday, and beautiful luxury products in the bathrooms, all for a price unimaginable in any other major city. This hotel will give you a true feel for Sydney's history and is 100% better than any overpriced, characterless chain hotel. I wish I could find this quality and this central location for this price everywhere I travel. A++
