I've stayed at The Realm a number of times. I find the location really convenient. Apart from work, you can walk to shops and cafes in Manuka, to Parliament House, the Old Parliament House etc. The reservations and front office staff have always been extremely helpful, although I did have an unnecessarily long wait for a simple request (an extension cord) to be brought to a meeting room. Rooms are well set-out, a good size and well-furnished (especially a really usable office desk). It is true that the beds are not well-made (especially after the first night) which is a strange deficiency that could be readily overcome). Room service is good and I LOVE the Nespresso machine and coffee pods so that I can actually have a real coffee (rather than that stuff in coffee sachets). I've never had a problem with noise, although I'm not a particularly light sleeper. I've not eaten much in the restaurant except for breakfast (good) but the bar is good and thankfully open late enough to serve people returning from meetings or business dinners. I've stayed in enough very ordinary and mediocre hotels in Canberra to appreciate the Realm and I'm always happy to go back.
