The bathroom is reminiscent of those in an airplane. No ventilation means mold and smells accumulate. There is no space to have a shower curtain so everything gets wet. Larger, shared bathrooms would be preferred. Bed is clean and comfortable.

Room size is big, bed is big and comfy and staffs are friendly. The room is cheap and you still get a good room size and bed size in which it is pretty comfortable. The bathroom is very small though but over all it was good. We did have a good view too on our window.

We were only in Canberra for a night and weren't planning on spending much time in a hotel room, just somewhere to sleep. This was perfect for just that. While the rooms are very small and confined, it is recommended for a quick visit. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Cheap accommodation, mostly below $100/night, have seen it as low as $70/night if you get in early enough. Nothing special but affordable, clean enough at a quiet location not too far from Canberra CBD.

Stayed there for 1 night. Paid $79 for a night. You would think that is cheap for an Accor property but its not upto the standards you would expect of an Accor property. Terrible miniature rooms, thermocol cups for drinking, bathroom and toilet have a very small partition and is the size exactly of that in the airplane. Bed is... More

The front desk were friendly and accommodating to our request for extra towels. it's a budget hotel, price was... More

If your on a tight budget, aren't fussy and just want a room to sleep in then this is for you. I was on a business trip and it was entirely inappropriate. The double bed was too small and I had to sleep diagonally (I'm not even 6ft tall).There was literally about 2ft between the end of the bed and... More

We had booked a triple room, which mean we are getting a queen bed and a bunk to accommodate me, my husband and my 8 year old son. We arrived very late that night, well after the front desk closes. So they left our key in a mailbox. When we got to our room, they had given us a queen... More

As the name suggests budget accommodation. If you looking for a clean place to sleep the night with basic facilities and a price to match you can’t go wrong. Friendly staff and ample parking. If you are looking for a large spacious room with all the luxuries of home, you need to look else ware and pay the appropriate price.... More
