Do not end up in room 17. This room is so small. Ruined the start of a weekend away. Even the girl at reception said that it should not be let as it is a terrible room. Paid less money on our last trip for a room twice the size in the same area. And a heads up the *onsite...

Everything where I had to go were in walking distance. I've made a mistake with the booking (wrong date) they changed to booking to the correct date without charge, even though I discovered the mistake too late. I do appreciate this very much.

My taxi driver said that it is in one of the oldest buildings in Canberra. The rooms are good size clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. The apartments are within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. I have a suite with a balcony, some review make reference to street noise but I didn't find it intrusive and it was...

Room was clean and tidy. Lounge area a bit small. Big balcony. Decent size kitchenette. Location very central with lots of restaurants nearby.

The location cannot be beat, with many choices nearby for dining and drinking. Two downsides: limited wifi and street noise. For wifi, the hotel has a maximum on free...

This is an excellent choie for accomodation - central, close to all business hubs - government ad non government. It is also in close proximity to the Autralian National University campus. Close to Parliament House as well

Street noise from the street sweepers jars you awake around 3:30 AM. Your 'free' wifi is bare bones, you'll wind up using it all and having to buy more wifi if you do any work on your computer in your room.

Great central location, could walk most places and was close to public transport. Very clean and well kept premises. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely studio apartment, would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at Quest Canberra for three nights and was overly impressed with many qualities of this hotel. From the cleanliness and elegance of the rooms, the hospitality from the down to earth staff, to the overall comfort of the room itself. Will be highly recommending this place to anyone visiting Canberra!!

Great location, and great service. Easy walk to restaurants and shops in civic, and building had great atmosphere. Just some attention to the lift, which was noisy and interrupted my sleep. Would recommend anyway, but hope they fix the lift!
