Classic cool

Warm helpful welcome! ( Thanks Maxine !) We stayed 5 nights,the first in a room with a shared bathroom down the hall. The shared bath was kept very clean at all hours, it was not a problem. We then moved to a bigger room with AC. We would stay there again.

Perfect Sydney break

Would recommend Mon, Aug 18, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay in the Russell, the location is fantastic and great value for money. I was skeptical about having to share a bathroom but the facilities were all so well kept and modern. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was also included it was just a selection of cereals, bread and pastries. You have to be up early though as it finishes at 9.30. The bedrooms were comfortable and nicely decorated, they even leave chocolates on your pillow in the evening. Overall it's a lovely hotel with a fantastic location!

Perfect location!

Would recommend Tue, Aug 5, 2014
This hotel is located just a few blocks from Circular Quay, so you can catch a ferry to anywhere in Sydney. Also very nearby are the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Botanical Gardens. The Rocks area is also great if you're interested in the history of Australia. We stayed in a room with a shared bathroom. We never had to wait since there were 2 on the 3rd floor and 1 on the 2nd floor.

Charming hotel in perfect location

Would recommend Tue, Apr 29, 2014
Charming, quaint hotel in historic building within easy walking distance of Opera House, bridge, botanical gardens and shopping and dining venues. Each room is individually decorated with lovely wallpapers and antiques. Fresh flowers in room were an especially nice surprise.

Entertainment hint

Opera House is an easy walk for an evening performance even in heels. Enjoy the view and a drink at the Opera Bar.

Location

Would recommend Sat, Aug 10, 2013
Situated in The Rocks area of Melbourne 2 minutes walk from Circular Quay for ferries, trains, bus, walking ease to everything. Friendly old style hotel with antique furniture in room, communal sitting areas inside and out. Good value with much more personality than modern plastic hotel. Includes Continental breakfast; internet is charged though low cost. We had an ensuite room though lower cost non-ensuite are available. Quiet. Not for those with mobility limitations. Because it is older buildings joined together, there are a lot of 3 steps up to a corridor/reception, narrow corridors, and the access to the hotel requires walking up/down a 25 metre steep lane (not great if your suitcase doesn't have wheels or it is raining).
