“Really convenient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

We were looking for a central hotel and one with apartments so we could self cater. While the Waldorf is rather tired looking, it was quiet and fitted our criteria. The parking was good and the staff okay.

Room Tip: The lift doesn't go to the top floors.

I stay here from time to time for work purposes. The apartments are individually owned and vary in the quality of fittings. On my most recent trip the soft furnishings were clearly overdue for refresh - threadbare quilt cover, stained blanket. Then I put my head on the pillow and it stank. Badly, like it was long overdue for replacement.

To be fair it was promptly replaced at my request. But still.

This is unpleasant at any price but particularly disappointing given the price paid. The canberra hotel market is a grossly overinflated microcosm and there doesn't seem to be much of a connection between price and quality.

My husband and I stayed at the Waldorf for a four day conference. The location is perfect for a stay in Canberra. The Canberra Centre (Myer entrance) is about 100 meters away. A short walk and you are at the bus platform 10 if you would like to catch the free bus to the attractions.

The apartments are a little old and tired but very comfortable. The bathroom is spacious with washing machine and dryer - you will need to bring your own washing powder for the first wash. Towels were good, however, you don't get body lotion, cake soap, ear buds - you do get a shower cap and there are soap dispensers on the wall.

The bed was great, however, the pillows were smelly of other people's sweat.

Continental breakfast was good in the restaurant on the ground floor. You can order bacon and eggs for a reasonable cost.

The receptionists could have been a bit more professional - we did not often get a smile or a simple hello, which can mean a lot.

I would still recommend this accommodation and would stay there again.

I hope someone eventually removes the plates that have been on the floor four three days outside the lifts.

I had a one night stay in a studio apartment. Everything was as expected, and I could easily stay here for a longer time. Fantastic central Canberra location, and a nice continental breakfast. A value for money hotel.

Booked a one bed room apartment for 2 adults and 2 very young kids based on good reviews. The hotel was great. Funky design. Brand new and very clean. The apartment was very spacious. The kids enjoyed it a lot - including the WI FI. Great service. Affordable parking. Fantastic location - close to the center of the city. LAte checkout which we couldn't take advantage of. Great breakfast place for the family

I stayed for four nights in a one bedroom apartment while attending a conference at the National Convention Centre, which is just a pleasant walk 5 minute from the Waldorf front door. Strangely the Waldorf was not listed as one conference hotels by the convention organisers, so I only found out about it by accident, and it seemed a missed opportunity for the hotel that it wasn't listed as an option for the 1000+ delegates, many of whom had to stay at far-removed hotels up Northbourne Avenue after the CP booked out. My apartment was fine but a few minor improvements are needed. For example, get rid of the heavy old bedspreads and blankets and upgrade to doonas with crisp white covers, ban wall mounted soap and shampoo dispensers and replace with individual products, get proper hangers for the wardrobe rather than those fixed things - this would make a big difference. I didn't try the breakfast because it was great to be able to do my own in the kitchenette, and food supplies were available nearby in the Foodbarn in Canberra Centre.
