We were recommended to stay near the Rocks in Sydney and were definitely pleased that we did. It's definitely the best location as it's so near to the two main iconic landmarks, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. We chose the Russell because it was much better value than most other places near it.
The hotel itself is pretty tired and the only room we could get unfortunately had a shared bathroom. It was also extremely noisy and somewhere you should definitely take ear plugs. However, it was clean and the products in the bathrooms were Molton Brown (with the exception of the shower gel which was pretending to be Molton Brown).
You get a continental breakfast thrown in and the Russell bar and restaurant is really nice. The breakfast was simple but good quality.
We would go back just for the location.
