“Little gem in Canberra!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

The East Hotel has a great location, facilities and staff - with lots of little extras! We had a super stay. The complimentary bikes for a cycle down to the river were great. The rooms are excellent, very clean and quiet. Liked the coffee and fresh flavoured waters in the lobby - and the jaffas! We wished we could stay longer! Highly recommend this little gem to travellers - business visitors included!

We only stayed one night but should we stay in canberra again i will have no hesitation to stay here again. We got a free upgrade after the wife pointed out i didn't book the right room, not sure if the staff felt sorry for me. The room was new and modern and very quite even though we looked over a pub. All in all very nice indeed

Spent the night here, it was comfortable and the staff were great. I wished I was staying longer! Bed and pillows were comfy, bathroom was huge and included a spa bath as well as shower etc. furnishings were stylish and I was surprised at how great the kitchen amenities were, including a coffee machine. Highly recommend staying here.

I spend a lot of time in Canberra and always stay at The East. I think I've stayed 26 times to date mainly during the week. The staff are always friendly, the rooms are great I think I've sampled all the styles. The food at OX is fantastic. Plus it's in a great location, pretty central to anywhere you need to go in Canberra. I can sure recommend The East. Better not say too much or it will be booked out next time I want a room....

Room Tip: All good. Rooms are comfortable and nice views...

I had a 1 bedroom suite which was a good size, and had decent enough facilities to cook a full meal for 4 - the bed was very comfortable, and the toiletries provided were of a high quality
parking charges were very reasonable
service was good, whenever one actually did encounter the staff - unlike the average South East Asian hotel, you don't find staff hovering around you, around every corner - it is a very efficient set up
