This is a great location, within just a few minutes walk of Telopea Park, Kingston shops, Canberra Glassworks, and the old Bus depot markets - just to name a few nearby attractions. The amenities at East are excellent. My only complaint was that my room was too warm for my liking and I had difficulty turning the air-conditioning off. Fortunately,... More

After struggling to find last minute accommodation for the Australian Running Festival I stumbled across East hotel. They accommodated my room change (from 1br to 2br back to 1 br - Long story !) without complaint and without any penalties which was impressive given how busy the weekend was. Rachel was very helpful on the phone and all the staff... More

We stayed at East last year for a night and reviewed it then as excellent choice. When the AFL released their fixture in November we booked a room for each of the GWS Canberra games without hesitation, the first was last night and so glad we did. We received a free upgrade to an apartment, This is superb accommodation, all... More

Very comfortable and spacious. Stayed in February and had a perfect weekend visiting exhibitions. Tickets organised by hotel and nothing too much trouble. Excellent facilities and bargain breakfasts! Good location - so many choices for eating out very close by. Would stay here now every time we visit Canberra.

Good location, price and facilities- particularly if you were staying for more than 2 days with its modern rooms and kitchen. Don't eat there- go out, plenty of surrounding options. Forget the Hyatt etc. This is my preferred Canberra option

I stayed 2 nights in late March for work. Arrived at 8.30pm and restaurant was still serving dinner so headed down for a glass of wine and something to set after checking in. Studio Room was modern and well furnished, comfy bed, good sized bathroom. Convenient location, close to restaurants and short drive to Parliament House. I had a hire... More

My wife and I stayed at the East hotel for one night. From the minute I spoke to the booking staff over the phone I was treated very well. We booked one of their special packages but wanted more, like breakfast, a bigger room, free bottle of wine, etc. Nothing was to much to ask for. When we arrived, check... More

I stayed in a one bedroom studio for one night in March 2014. East is a very modern hotel. The interiors are fashionably retro, modern and well equipped. Nespresso coffee, very comfortable bed, very clean, good room size, large bathroom, friendly welcome. Room for improvement: the corridors are very dark and minimalist, in contrast to the other common areas which... More
