I stayed in a one-bedroom apartment and thought it was excellent--very spacious, nicely designed, equipped with everything you could possibly need (washer and dryer, well-stocked kitchen where cooking actual meals is really possible, ironing board and iron, 2 flat screen tvs, lots of desk and table space, balcony, comfortable couches and chairs and very nice beds). The bathroom was beautiful as well, although the amenities were in dispensers, and I would've appreciated some lotion being among them. The only way the hotel suffered in my eyes was in how much they rely on sharing facilities (pool, gym, restaurant, late check-in, etc) with the very worn Pavilion on Northbourne hotel next door. Also, the internet prices are outrageous (although this seems to be pretty common in Australian hotels), and the location is alright, but the hotel is located between the city center and Dickson (the "chinatown" area where there are lots of great restaurants), and walking to either would require at least 20 minutes along the very busy and boring Northbourne, but would be a short cab ride. I think pretty much everything in Canberra is overpriced, but if you're stuck paying the exorbitant prices in this town anyway, the Aria is in my opinion definitely worth the small amount more you might pay over other hotels in the area.
