A boutique-style historical building, built in 1887, the hotel is located very 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 Harbour 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 Harbour Bridge and are rewarded with stunning 360 degree views of the harbor and city.

The Russell Hotel Sydney - Food, drink and entertainment The Fortune of War
The Fortune of War is Sydneys oldest licensed establishment. The First licencee was Samuel Terry who was transported to Australia in 1801 for seven years for theft. At the expiration of his sentence, he made the most of his misfortune to establish his business. You may also want to read about the colorful past of the Oldest pub in Sydney.

Disappointing experience

Location, reasonably priced internet,
5.3
We were disappointed with our stay. Many years ago, my husband and I frequented this establishment and enthusiastically recommended it to friends visiting Sydney. We found it to be 'dated' - furnishings and fittings look tired, bathroom pokey and shower recess needed a good clean. The 'bar' downstairs has replaced wwhat was once a delightful breakfast room with access to George street. The breakfast is now served in the pub next door! The fruit was days old, the cereal stale and the whole thing not pleasant. So sad to think such a beautiful old building no longer exudes the charm and elegance of years gone by. Our room was tiny - yes, a standard, but tiny. No wine glasses, and bottles of water $3.50! Our bed had a 'floppy' matress and it squeaked.The wardrobe didn't shut properly. Not happy customers. We won't return.

Fantastic location and good value accommodation

Location in the heart of the rocks, historic building and proximity to public transport.

The Russell hotel was the perfect location for our stay in Sydney to see Vivid. Being close to Circular Quay train station, we did not need to bring a car and the Rocks provided numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants.
