We stayed at the Rex whilst attending an Exhibition at the Racecourse venue. Our room was excellent at first viewing but had a number of 'quirk's' that let it down. They have used a glass screen between the bedroom and the open plan bathroom. As the bathroom has no natural light a night light and fan came on when you... More

One of Canberra establishment hotels looking to reclaim former glory. Good hotel, out of the town a bit. So $10 taxi to get into the city. Very good quality and for my suite a sauna in the room! I would stay here again. More like a boutique hotel than a chain.

A great motel within walking distance of the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was small but modern, clean and very comfortable. We had a room service meal which was pleasant.The buffet breakfast was good.We stayed for two nights and would recommend The Canberra Rex Hotel.

Stayed for one night in a room with comfortable king size bed. The bathroom had a good shower. There was a warm greeting from girl on reception. Enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. It was a comfortable walk to local restaurants, as well as Canberra Centre which had a range of shops and Outlets.

Noisy, extremely loud 'doof, doof music' vibrating through floor/walls, a party held by long term tenants until midnight, complained twice to night manager, we were told it was a private function, nothing to do with the hotel! This is not acceptable to short term paying guests, apparently police were called to shut down the party. These hotel apartments appear to... More

The place is undergoing a well needed makeover. The food lacks flavour and the service average. The rooms 2 1/2 stars, over priced. Toilets on the ground floor of poor standard and hygiene is lacking.

Attend the Rex convention centre for a family wedding this month and everything from a visitors perspective was fabulous. The bride and groom also appeared impressed with the service and overall experience. Meals were amazing and staff were friendly and very accommodating, especially with the large number of children in attendance.
