Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is our third visit to The Russell Hotel and our first choice when we are staying in The Rocks. Perfect location for our St Patrick's Day Celebrations and perfect location in general. A few minutes walk from Circular Quay station and walking distance to all locations around The Rocks. Pub downstairs has nice meals. Rooms are clean with comfortable beds. Hosts are lovely and friendly and make you feel very welcome. Easy check in/check out. We will be back :)

This has become our 'go to' place when we stay in the city. Its got a warm and comfortable feel throughout the whole place and Gary at the front desk is best! No 90's furnishing here, just quaint sophistication plus windows you can open!!

The hotel was quite nice, staff friendly, but the room was not great. Comfortable but the bathroom was not ideal and made no sense in its set up. No coffee...had to plug a kettle in on the floor as it was not a decent facility set up on a table or area in the room. Breakfast was horrible. Wouldn't rush back ...was a one off stay for us.

I was looked after extremely well by the staff of The Russell Hotel. Thank you for your hospitality. Beautiful decor and comfy beds. Delicious food at the pub downstairs too. Fresh flowers in the bedroom which was a lovely touch. Loved the little chocolates left for me. Thank you again.

My boys and I stayed for four nights at the Russell Boutique Hotel, and it was amazing. Very cozy and relaxing, thanks for the friendly staffs. The building is old but very well-maintained. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back.

Excellent boutique hotel in a great spot to able to see the best of Sydney. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast excellent. The price was good, and they didn't try and add on extra charges (like some big hotels). We were staying there with our adult daughter and the the cost was the room price - as it should be. When looking at other hotels in Sydney, they wanted to charge an extra person rate eg $100 extra per night for having three people in a four person room. That didn't make sense to me. Anyway do yourself a favour and get on down to The Russell.

We really enjoyed our three nights back at our favourite Sydney hotel. The Russell has great charm and is perfectly located in the heart of the Rocks. Close to transport, cafes, restaurants and bars. Above all, the staff are very friendly and helpful, taking the time to chat and give advice. We’ll be back again for sure!

My daughter and I had a "girls night" in Sydney and the Russell Boutique Hotel was a great option. It is dated in a nice way - we loved going retro. Its location in the Rocks and near public transport was a nice bonus. Super clean with friendly staff - it was perfect for us.

My stay was only for one night as I had a wedding to attend 2 mins walk away so a fantastic location for my purpose. Also a short walk to Circular Quay and the Rocks. All the staff I encountered were friendly and my room was clean and the bed very comfortable.
