The Rex is a Canberra institution. I'd hoped that with news of a renovation that they would embrace their history & go for a mid century theme for the update. They have not. Although it is still in progress, the colour & fittings selected are just standard hotel fare- boring. Wifi was horrible- in 2 rooms on the 3rd floor... More

Needed a room for a night on a trip back to Sydney from the Snowy Mountains and thought we would spend a day in Canberra to play tourist. There were renovations within the building, looks like they are doing a complete makeover, we were given a free upgrade to a suite. Everything was very nice, the rooms, the staff, free... More

Barry and Jenny stayed at the Rex and had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. The room was fantastic and the bed was really comfortable to sleep in and the bathroom was awesome so big and so much room to move around. We would recommend the Rex to our families and friends and we will be going back soon to have... More

Just back after 6 nights at Rex apartments which are attached to Canberra Rex hotel. Good position just about 2ks from centre of town, easy walk also. Underground free parking included in price. Lovely apartment, clean and furnished well. Very warm did not even have heating on. Would recommend and would return.

Loved the room - recently refurbished - clean, spacious and very comfy. Great beds and plenty of pillows. Staff were friendly and very helpful and the food in the restaurant was first class. Within walking distance of the city and some great shops and a cheap Uber ride to the likes of the War Memorial and Parliament House. Definitely the... More

Two bedroom apartment was brand new & almost everything there to make your stay comfortable. Great kitchen, well equipped with pod coffee maker, microwave, 2 drawer dishwasher. Washing machine & dryer plus extra toilet. Comfortable beds with good quality linen. The one bathroom is a let down. Good sized shower but absolutely no where to put your soap etc.....everything has... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was brand new and absolutely gorgeous. Couldn't fault it! Had everything we needed in the kitchen, had free wifi and access to pool and gym. Will definitely stay here again when visiting Canberra

Although the hotel staff were friendly and helpful and in general the hotel is clean and modern it really should be closed while renovations are ongoing or at least some kind of warning. No heating in the rooms, lifts not working and no restaurant. None of this was mentioned when checking in. There were 2 small noisy portable heaters in... More

We booked into for our wedding night and the night of the reception last year in October. No acknowledgement, that it was our wedding night even though it was informed during the booking. It was an exhausting day for us and we were planning to have a late morning which was interrupted by a big noise. There was a massive... More

The room was nice, tidy and modern as advertised. But when we turned up at the reception, the staff tried to charge us extra for our 2 young kids (3 and 6 years old) - beyond and above what we already paid through the Booking.com. Even though after reaching through the booking.com, the total cost Booking.com provided didn't seem to... More
