My partner and I stayed here for our 2nd year anniversary as we wanted something special to celebrate and staying in a 5 star hotel is usually a pretty fun experience just enjoying the hotel facilities and room. Now I will say we went for the cheapest room available and it was reasonable value as far as rooms go. But... More

The Realm Hotel in Barton is centrally located, well appointed and is the epitome of its style of design. The staff were helpful and the room spacious and comfortable. And yet, the Realm and its staff displayed a lack of attention to detail that is the real mark of a great five-star hotel. It was the little things that let... More

Checked into the 2 bedroom Atrium apartment at the Hotel Realm Canberra for 3 nights on a trip to visit Floriade and some of the local attractions. This is a great apartment on the Executive floor. You come through the door and on the left is a fully functioning kitchen including an oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine etc. It... More

I stayed overnight for a presentation the next day - very pleasant stay. Impressive hotel, a room with everything needed. The conference areas was good, and staff very friendly upon arrival and departure. I ordered room service which came promptly - only issue was a written request on the breakfast menu to leave yogurt off my fresh fruit was ignored... More

If you are coming to Canberra on business, chances are you will be needing to visit Government department or a National association head offices or Parliament House. While noting is really within walking distance in Canberra, this hotel is in an excellent location for all of the above. Modern in style and presentation, Realm is a very individual hotel property...

Me and my husband stayed at the Realm for one night. We were visiting Canberra to explore and were hoping to have a relaxing time at the hotel. We really enjoyed the rooms, they are very spacious. There is separate bedroom, lounge area and dining area. There is even facilities such as washing machine and a dishwasher in the room,... More

Good hotel, close to embassies, Parliament House, etc. easy to find. Walking distance to Kingston cafés, restaurants and bars. Great car park for large cars. Also the rooms are much larger than most hotels

Had a lovely 2 night stay in the 2 bed apartment. Good sized kitchen, rooms and bathrooms. Staff young and friendly. A couple of housekeeping issues on arrival, but sorted quickly with one phone call. Three good eating places right there, Ostani, Maple and Clover, and Malamay, all highly recommended. A walk to Parliament House, National Gallery and the Portrait... More

Hotel Realm is impressive in most parts but also have room for improvement in other parts. I booked a one bedroom suite last week for two nights. I was given one on the first level (above the reception ground level) facing the road, away from the afternoon sun. It is supposed to be better facing, so I was told. The... More

Although this is relatively a new hotel, clean and spacious, my stay was far from pleasant. My disappointment began when I walked into the room. the stench was unbearable. I thought someone must have used the bathroom before I checked in. I had to contact staff to bring an air freshener. The staff seemed to know exactly what my complaint... More
