The Russell Hotel, The Rocks
Russell is the epitome of the Rocks in Sydney
Loved my stay at the Russell hotel. It both matches the older feel of the Rocks where it's located and the staff there are very friendly and helpful. The man on duty at the front desk spent more than a few minutes offering counter suggestions when a tour I had planned fell thru. Loved the nightly mints delivered with a little card with a different saying every night. Loved the bar downstairs, The Push. Enjoyed the free continental breakfast served every morning, plenty of options depending on your mood that morning.

Great Location to visit Sydney
Greatest location if one were boarding a cruise ship on Circular Quay and also being so close to Opera House and Ferries. Walk with your luggage to train station for the International Airport and many food and bar places. Staff is friendly and attentive.

Great location, wonderful staff
The Russell is a great historic hotel in a perfect location for walking or taking public transportation. The staff was friendly and always helpful. Because it is old, the rooms vary in size and in the number of stairs necessary to reach your room. There are two pubs below the hotel, and on Friday and Saturday evenings, we could hear the music in the bar very clearly. However, the beds were super comfortable and we slept well.
