“So Clean!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

Stayed for 2 nights early June.Outside night temps go down to minus 5. The room was very warm.The bedding was luxurious and so sleepable.

Its probably the cleanest hotel room I have ever been in.6 stars for cleaners. Quiet position. A 10 minute drive from the main tourist areas of parliament house. war memorial etc.

If you want to eat head for "Dickson shops", there are a number of restaurants and a few cafes there.

TV choices are a bit limited as there was no cnbc or bloomberg available.
Internet is not free and it is broadband not wi fi. This is a minus in my book. After paying 145$ for the room I think internet should be included.

Room Tip: go to DICKSON SHOPS for restaurants.

The Aria Hotel Canberra is very clean and modern, with quality appliances, furnishings and fittings in the lobby, hallways and rooms.

A couple of novelties include the electronic 'privacy' and 'make up my room' switches, and the rainfall shower (though the water temperature wasn't especially hot).

My main criticisms are the hotel has a very clinical, almost sterile ambiance – IE it doesn't feel warm and welcoming when you walk in – and I don't know what was up with the bed, but speaking personally it was way too soft for comfort, and it felt like my head was downhill of my feet.

A couple of oddities include not having a minibar and not being able to have breakfast delivered to your room. There isn't a proper restaurant (but you can head next-door to the adjacent Pavilion on Northborne hotel).

The staff were excellent: Very courteous, efficient and customer-focused.

Overall the Aria is a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay, as well as being well-priced. I'd stay there again. But it's definitely aimed at the business market (people who want to get in and get out) rather than families or holiday makers.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Dooring Street (third floor and above) get an unobstructed view of the morning sun, whi...

Everything you would want from a serviced apartment style hotel - modern, clean, spacious, nice decor and, most importantly, comfortable. Very quiet too despite being close to Northbourne Ave plus great Internet access, so ideal for business trips or family trips. A good quality room service menu is available as well as a fully stocked kitchen. Have been to Canberra plenty of times - this is definitely now my preferred place to stay.

I have stayed in this hotel a couple of times now and would definitely return again. The rooms are very clean and modern. It is an easy 5-10 minute walk to lots of shops, bars and restaurants. It is a 10 minute drive to the city centre (Civic).
