A boutique-styled historical building built in 1887, The Russell Hotel is located near most of the things people come to Sydney to see. The Royal Botanical Gardens, the famous Circular Quay, the historic Rocks district, and the Sydney Harbor Bridge are all easily accessible from the front entrance of this quaint building. For an interesting day out that will certainly result in a story or two, be sure to check out BridgeClimb, where visitors actually climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge and are rewarded with stunning 360-degree views of the harbor and city. A world of restaurant and dining opportunities await just steps from the lobby. An out-of-the-ordinary accommodation, The Russell Hotel is a great find in a prime location.

LOUD!

Staff was friendly.
6.3
The hotel over all was decent. My issues were that the room was extremely small. With this said the size isn't that big of a deal, however, with such a small room and being a few stories up, it gets warm and stuffy. So to remedy this problem you would generally turn on the AC. However this hotel only had AC in the reception area and not for guests in their rooms. So opening a window and turning on the ceiling fan is the next logical step. This is why I wount give this hotel a good review. The amount of noise was outrageous! There is a pub connected to the hotel and We must have had the worst luck with the room we were assigned, because The noise from the pub and the alleyway below us, kept us up all night! Also the ceiling must be thin as well for the people who had the room above us made the equivalent racket of an elephant trying to stomp on a dozen mice! All this at 1:00am. The hotel can't help its location or its old building, but adding some modern things like an AC would have kept us cool without having to open the window and letting in more of the street noise. Listening to drunken fools yelling at each other and hearing bottles break is not what I had in mind for my Holliday. If I were staying there on business I would have demanded my mony back because there was no way to get a reasonable amount of sleep with that much noise. At least on vacation I wasn't too worried about the lack of sleep. A good point, is that the breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. When we complained about the noise the receptionist was understanding but unable to do anything about it. Hotel is located in the rocks and is Walking distance to the bridge and to plenty of night life and pubs. No T. V. In our room but they did offer a sitting room elsewhere. The shared bathroom was very small but seemed clean.
