We spent 4 nights here and loved it. This hotel is close to the city centre, you can walk to it. Room was clean. Buffet Breakfast was included with the room and was very nice. There is a pool and gym. Staff are lovely

Everything here is almost perfect: pool, interior, quality of apartment, level of comfort, service, pool, etc. Definitely,...

Walking distance to city centre. Very comfortable beds and a little extra with an ensuite sauna. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely breakfast. Only problem was building was being renovated which was noisy early and making parking inconvenient so check if repairs are complete

Very clean hotel with all new amenities. Very helpful staff and quality services. Rooms are clean and well spaced. Free breakfast is perfect and newspaper is free. Location is appropriate to our plans and liked the stay well. Only thing that disappointed us was that the backrest on top of sauna bench was broken earlier and not noted by the...

The entry of the place is stunning. We can see luxurious and comfort in everywhere. My room was better than i was expected and the staff are very polite and helpful. If I come back to Canberra I will definitely stay in Rex hotel again.
