First time at break free Capitol towers- I choose acton for being near to ANU, plus easy walk across the lake to cultural precinct , and 10mins walk to city shops.
Self contained apartments, but with the advantage of very friendly helpful reception staff, gourmet deli/cafe across road for provisions , breakfast or brunch.
Comfortable beds; and great "room service" (5 local takeaways that deliver to one's room)- can recommend Chinese orchid,
would stay here again

Room Tip: Higher up floors better

Well there was 4 of us staying and we got up graded to Lake view room.
The staff are really helpful and the apartment was very spacious and well furnished.
The only thing I think needs attention is the main bathroom the ceiling is very low for someone tall.
But would recommend to anyone for a stay here.
Great location.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms and we had the 16th floor great views.

Despite great views, a spacious apartment and a good position I felt strangely let down by the Capital Towers. Only one lift was working and this led to lengthy delays moving about. We started having to plan for the delays. I felt sorry for the permanent tenants as the lift 'upgrade' had already been got on for over 3 months. The gym was okay but I tried the spa bath three times and it never worked despite me mentioning it to reception. The building is old, with narrow corridors and locks still operated by old fashioned keys. I would go back again if I knew both lifts were working.

We are currently staying at Breakfree Capital Tower Canberra. The rooms are spacious and our lake view room has beautiful views over Canberra. A perfect location for a few days exploring the national capital. Reasonable prices and the staff are friendly and helpful. Yvette and Dylan in particular couldn't do enough for us. We have stayed here before and had positive experiences every time.

Room Tip: Go for a lake view room. There is also some road noise so go for a high floor.

OK this is not going to be a rousing review unfortunately. From a cribbed corridor smelling of old meals we found our rooms. I've seen more furnishings in a prison cell. Some of the furniture was only upright because it was leaning at a rakish angle on the walls and all of the furniture looked like worn mismatched castoffs. But then the whole building is all pillars and strangely laid out rooms. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with friends on the 6th floor facing the lake ... if you looked carefully through the motorways and traffic you could see water. The aircon was, politely, quaint but we did eventually find the fan switch -- but you could inspect the aircon dirt-encrusted workings through a prominent and convenient full length door in the loungeroom. Kids would have been into that little space with all its machinery. Not happy obviously, too expensive even had it been free.

Room Tip: Avoid the 6th floor, face the lake and go as high as you can.
