Near the parliament

Pros: Staff and location.
Location: Near Parliament and shops. But Canberra is a sleepy town that closes up early.
If you need luxury and lots of space this hotel is not for you. But it is a great value. It is near the Parliament building so great for business travelers. The food is quite good. The room I had was small and dated but very clean and comfortable.
