Very unclean. The room was definitely not as presented on the Accor site. Staff were very pleasant, which was great and the location is also great but the owners of the room need a wake up call.
Hope this helps

Picture on the website in no way matched my experience. Breakfast while good value at prebooking was just okay for the price paid. The breakfast restaurant is located in another hotel. Or booking showed a veranda, but we did not have one. Both TVs constantly turned turned off.

First, it is not a hotel, it is an apartment building, so do not expect 24-hour reception desk or breakfast or other meals. Second, the apartments are huge, the one I stayed had 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom besides kitchen, living room and washer/dryer. However, the decoration is dated with very odd artwork throughout the apartment, and the carpet seems dirty. Third, the closets had doors that did not work well, drawers that did not fit the closet and broken hangers with nail points showing. Therefore, I maintained the closet open, and I had to organize the additional linen in the closet because it was folded in a very clumsy way. When I did so, I was horrified to notice strange stains in the blankets and duvets, they seemed to be folded after being used (seemed very dirty). Fourth, the bathroom fan was also dirty with lint and dust. Toiletries were nice, although the dispensers of some of them did not work well, seemed clogged. Fifth, when I arrived, the lights were on, and so was the dishwasher with only one sharp knife being washed, I felt uneasy to think that there could be someone else in the apartment (CSI/Criminal Minds chapters came to mind). Finally, the equipment for automated taxi call in the front desk did not work, after 15 minutes waiting for the cab, I gave up and went to the nearest hotel to call a taxi and avoid losing my flight. It was the lowest point of my stay in Canberra. The price is too high considering all the points aforementioned...

Room tip: Go to other hotels, this is not worthwhile.

Our family needed an overnight stay in Canberra and this hotel fitted the bill.

It was the cheapest and in the best location for me and my family. The room was furnished in contemporary furniture and was spotlessly clean.

Guest services were very friendly and helpful.

Room tip: Parking is extra (we paid $12/day). We parked outside and there was plenty of space available.
