About The Russell Hotel


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.

The Russell steps back in time
Its character, its location - the Rocks, it's where we spent our wedding night 25 years ago
The lady at reception, Maxine, was positively delightful, so helpful and accommodating. The room was spacious and comfortable. There were no serious issues to speak of and the complimentary chocolates were a nice touch. All round, well done, we'll be back for our 50th!

nice room
Good spots at the Rocks, pretty room, nice view at the local working office right next to my room
i think it was lovely to have stayed at the Russell Hotel, the room is lovely and clean, good location, and a great view from our room's window, that we could look right at the local working office and they also have a good view at our room. Privacy is absolutely zero in this room, Awesome!!! Not!!!
