Lovely old building and a very nice room with stairs leading down to it and some nice antique furniture. Very nice buffet breakfast. Only complaint was a musty/mouldy smell in the bathroom; it was very clean though

Best Boutique Hotel in Sydney!

Had a wonderful stay as expected. Hotel staff are the best; helpful, friendly and always smiling. Will continue to make this accommodation my first choice when visiting Sydney.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The most outstanding thing about the Russell Hotel is the location. The Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay with the transport links (train, tram and ferry) are all within walking distance. The Hop-On-Hop-Off tour bus (red line) starts literally over the road and the 'Rocks' weekend market (fabulous) was a few minutes walk away. The only thing I would have liked to see was a room safe.
