I have now stayed here a number of times and although moderately expensive, it is usually good. This trip has shown me another side. My studio room is tiny and dingy - very poorly lit. For a frequent visitor I would expect better. I had no access to movies - after 3 tries I gave up and ended up reporting... More

This is a great hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. They are equipped with everything you could need. The service is very good, nothing seems too much trouble. The locate is quiet but close to both restaurants and buses. Its also close to the long distance train station and less then a $30 cab ride from the airport.... More

Very comfortable large room, well appointed with options ( cooktop and oven) I did not need for an overnight stay, but if staying longer certainly would have used. The staff made me feel most welcome and the restuarant provide a great breakfast in an bright airy environment. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stay at East Hotel for two nights. We were thoroughly impressed from the moment we walked into the Hotel reception area, which was large, open and staff greeting friendly. It is a large hotel with that boutique feel. We booked a King East Studio and was upgraded to a Luxe Studio. The spacious room was exceptionally... More

Recently stayed 17 nights at the East Hotel. It had been recommended by several Canberra friends, and was no. 1 on tripadvisor. I was not disappointed. Very spacious room, modern, well equipped (including kitchenette and washer/dryer), effective and quiet climate control system, private balcony. Staff in the lobby were all delightful and very helpful. The Ox Eatery downstairs is very... More

The East Hotel has enjoyed some rave reviews recently and was featured in the Gourmet Traveller 2014 Australian Hotel Guide. The feature was published after we booked a week there for a visit to explore the attractions of our national capital. And an inspired choice it turned out to be by our "tour organiser". Really well located, close to all... More

I have stayed at the East frequently since their opening. I like the proximity to Manuca and Kingston (within walking distance). The staff are exceedingly friendly and the rooms are comfortable and well thought out with free wifi. Would not hesitate to recommend the East.

I regularly visit Canberra and discovered East Hotel soon after it opened. I've stayed there many times now and find the staff pleasant and professional and the amenities modern. The rooms are quite large, the beds are comfortable. Some rooms have kitchenettes. Basically, everything I need for a quality stay. East is located in easy walk to the Manuka shopping... More

I found my visit to East Hotel very comfortable. The staff are charming, and the oversize rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. The internet was free and good. The staff were pleasant and the location convenient to the Kingston shops. I had the continental breakfast, which was of very high quality, and very well priced. Even the mini bar... More

We used the hotels function rooms for a dinner meeting. The service was good and the staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was excellent and ample. Our attendees all commented on the quality. Those with special diets were well catered for. The equipment was great and expert advice was ever present. Parking for our guests was available under...
