The Russell Hotel
Lonely Planet review
A recent renovation has seen this long-standing favourite divest itself of frills and furbelows and achieve some contemporary style as well as a downstairs wine bar. The rooftop garden and the location just minutes from Circular Quay are major drawcards, but only a few rooms have aircon and the cheaper ones share bathrooms.
Our independent authors have visited The Russell Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Sydney.
