I stayed at the Rex hotel on the 10th September. It was an awesome experience. The suite was absolutely amazing; clean, a generous size, the bed was massive. The best part was the 3 shower heads in the shower!!! Dinner downstairs was an unforgettable experience. The wine was great, and I really recommend the Pork belly and steak I had... More

Checked in after visiting their site..photos looked terrific. No! Got given one of their old rooms. Internet only worked in the hallway..TV terrible..Water in shower...well was almost non existent . We complained the next morning and were given one of the new rooms. It was lovely..be sure to ask for one.

The room is like a cheap motel room, heating did not work properly, the room was not sound proof as I could hear everything from the people next door. Also the free wi fi did not work. Staff told me that breakfast was included and then tried to charge me for it the next morning! They are doing renovations and... More

Dear Ritapaola, Thank you for your comments, and be assured that we take these very seriously. Regrettably we are going through different phases of refurbishment and like some earlier comments similar to yours our older rooms may not meet expectations or may be affected by the renovation activities but are priced accordingly. Meanwhile regarding the breakfast charge, an input mistake... More

The hotel is in a quite convenient location but it smells a bit funny. We spent a night there but the room smells quite funny maybe was the aircondition. The breakfast buffet was alright and the service was OK.

The dear old Rex is being upgraded - not before time - but while it's being renovated, go somewhere else- especially if you want to use the room during the day. It sounds like each wall and the floor and the ceiling is being drilled or jack-hammered. The new rooms are quite good it must be said - though it... More

No hot water - it's no fun having a cold shower in Canberra in mid winter ! other than the reception and ground floor public areas this hotel is well past it's... More
