"Quiet modern hotel - great for business trips"
I really enjoyed staying at the hotel because it was quiet and I could turn the air conditioning off as well as open windows. I'm a light sleeper so I really appreciated how quiet it was and the fact that I could turn off all air conditioning, which is not the case for many hotels. The staff were very friendly and the room was modern and well-equipped and the mini bar prices were very reasonable. The TV in my room wasn't working when I checked in but it was fixed quickly and pleasantly. My only comment for further improvement would be to extend the choice of room service meals. Overall, this is the best hotel that I have stayed in so far in Canberra. It's a little expensive but I will stay here again because it's quiet, clean, modern and comfortable with secure parking.

The east studio rooms are modern,comfortable and practical. The price is fair but you have to pay $10 for parking. There is a Coles supermarket a few minutes walk away.

"Great hotel in a convenient location"
We stayed in a studio apartment which was comfortable, spacious and well appointed. This is a modern hotel with great facilities. There is easy car parking underneath and a lovely cafe/bar at the front. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. The apartment had a kitchenette with a coffee pod machine. The bathroom was fairly large with a separate toilet. The bed was large and comfortable with a large screen TV, small table and chairs and a nice single lounge. There as also a a small outside balcony with tables and chairs so you could have the slide door open for fresh air. It is within easy access to most of the main attractions in Canberra and close to the Kingston shops and waterfront area with some great bars and cafes. It was great stay.

We had room 302, it was awful. It smelt of mould. There was clearly a drainage issue in the bathroom. Room 302 is over the car park entrance, very noisy especially when garbage truck arrived at 5am. The restaurant service was very poor, our beans arrived when we had finished dinner! Overrated hotel, especially now that Canberra has much better choices :)

"Great location"
Always enjoy our stay at the East Hotel. Great location, good vibe, room always comfortable and spotless. For us (family with young children) the restaurant menu is a bit limited, so we opt for one of the many great local restaurants instead. If the menu could be expanded to offer options for kids we would use the restaurant more.

"A Birthday trip to the ACT"
My wife and I came to Canberra to celebrate her 60th Birthday. I asked if the staff could arrange some flowers prior to our arrival and this they did perfectly with no fuss. In fact the staff were all always friendly and helpful during our stay.We stayed in an East Apartment which was extremely well equipped, of a good size and made for a comfortable stay. The hotel is well located next to Manuka Oval and we were able to walk to all the museums etc. easily. It is also in perfect position for a multitude of eating options. In house is the Ox Restaurant and across from the hotel is the Kingston pub offering various dining options. Five minutes walk away is the Kingston Plaza where there is a plethora of various eateries. Ten minutes walk further on are the up market eating establishments on the lakeside boardwalk. Our stay was perfect and the only 'blemish' I can comment on is the fact that the light coloured furnishings tend to show up the odd stain or two. A small stain on the couch was a bit unsightly but I guess it is hard to remove!

This was a "stay-cation" to escape our never ending home renovations for just one night. The luxe studio is such a nice big space with balcony and spa bath. Much more generous than your standard room. Free wi fi, $10 parking, terrific restaurant and short walk to kingston for brekky. Absolutely loved it and recommending it widely.

"Excellent hotel in great location"
I can't recommend this hotel enough. I stayed in a deluxe king apartment, which was awesome. The hotel staff were great, and the location was within a short walking distance to some great restaurants, with the Kingston pub right across the road if you fancy some pub food. A short cab ride gets you to all of the main sights, museums, city centre etc. I'll be back! One note if you're visiting Canberra though (and nothing to do with this hotel) is unless you're a diehard gambler, don't bother going to the casino. A single big ugly room with gaming tables, and a few cafe tables they call a restaurant in one corner which looks like it was added to fill an empty space. Yuk!

"A Boutique Feel"
We had a quick weekender stay in Canberra to visit all the regular sites. The hotel was lush - it had a very personal feel and the first thing I noticed about the room was that it smelled lovely, as if we had just walked into someone's home - and not at all like a hotel. The staff were relaxed and friendly and even refunded our breakfast without question or disdain when we turned up late for it. The house products provided were Australian made - they had a boutique lux and lushness to them and were even available in the lobby to purchase, which I will definitely do online. The parking was really cheap (we are used to Sydney prices), most of the products they stocked in the hotel were local (wine etc) which I thought was terrific, and we loved the cool touch of the free push bikes available to us. It's definitely our only choice when we next visit.

Excellent accommodation, clean, spacious and quiet (ask for a side room). Helpful staff. The breakfast we took on one of the three days was average at best, with tepid coffee produced by a Nespresso machine. Better to go to the many cafés in nearby Kingston or Manuka.

From check in to check out, this hotel was GREAT! A well furnished and equipped suite with a very usable balcony with table and chairs showed a lot of thought had gone into this hotel. Full size fridge/freezer, nice crockery and cooking utensils; it was great. Then the little extras like the candy jar near the exit, and the complimentary bicycles, ample out front parking....I know I am raving a bit, but this was an outstanding hotel in every way.

Good place. Stayed many times. One thing that irritates me is gouging customers for parking, particularly given this is Canberra we are talking about. One of my pet hates. Realm/Burberry both just as good (better food options) and have never charged me for parking. Spoilt for choice staying in Canberra. :-)

I spent 2 nights at the hotel for an important business trip and the hotel was ideal. It was modern and quiet with secure parking and a lovely modern and comfortable room. It also had a well-stocked mini bar with reasonable prices. This is the best hotel in Canberra that I've found and I've stayed in a few of them for business trips. It has a convenient location and is close to some shops and a petrol station. The staff are also professional and courteous.

"Nice modern hotel close to tourist attractions"
The East Hotel in Griffith is a modern, well appointed hotel close to most of Canberra's major tourist attractions and the parliament. Ideal for tourists or business stay. The 3pm check-in time is rather late in the day. Staff were thin on the ground but helpful when approached. There is a major supermarket a few minutes away. Rooms come with a Nespresso coffee-pod machine, but only 3 pods are provided free per day - doesn't go far if there are two or more persons staying. Cafe/restaurant on-site. The kitchen in the apartment suite we stayed in is very well appointed, well suited to longer stays. Ample power points for all electrical devices and a somewhat limited 100MB free internet are included. Our room was immediately across from a local pub so we could hear the noisy youths yelling outside - shut the balcony to avoid the swearing. On-site underground car park at an overnight charge. The bedside iPod player did not work. Get to breakfast well before the closing time of 10am as they started clearing well before 10 and did not supply more food to the buffet after 930am when we arrived.

Overnight stay for the Art Gallery exhibition. Comfortable, clean, central for our purposes. Staff cheerful and helpful. We took the Luxury Studio which had good space but only one lounge chair for reading. Great amenities. A fairly tedious breakfast given the proximity of good bread and pastry shops. I wish hotel folk would cease using "Continental Breakfast" as a code for tasteless sliced bread, canned fruit and awful coffee. The yoghurt, however, was very good.

"Stay at Expedia Hotel Canberra"
We stayed at the Expedia Hotel for 2 stays of 10 days each during a trip to Australia to visit our son and his family. We were very pleased with the hotel. We had a 1 bedroom apartment with all the facilities, washing machine, dishwasher, towels and bed linen were changed every 3 days. We also had supplies of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and top=up of dishwashing powder and washing machine powder daily, which was great as it saved us having to purchase these items. The lobby of the hotel had several computers so internet access was available for checking emails and flights etc without any hassle. The restaurant was not too great. We had breakfast there on 3 occasions but whilst the food was adequate, the choice was not. There was no fresh fruit for instance. That being said it was sufficient for our purposes.. We had two T.V.s in the apartment, one in the bedroom and 1 in the main living area. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. James and Anne Hamilton
