Since I have stayed at East Hotel so many times now, I thought it was time to give it a review. This is probably one of my favourite hotels in Canberra. Tucked away in between Kingston and Manuka, this is one of those places where you enjoy each subsequent visit as much as you did the first time. It's completely... More

I have stayed at many different hotels in Canberra over many years but this was my first time at the East. It is well located being convenient to the airport and central business areas. The Kingston Hotel is next door if you want an alternative venue for a drink and to dine. However, the East has all that you need.... More

I took my wife to East for the night to celebrate her birthday and we had a very happy time. We will definitely stay there again. Staff in Joe's bar were friendly and the food was delicious. Love the bookshop in the cafe and the way our breakfast table was reserved by books placed at our settings...great touch!

Even before I arrived I was receiving great service via email from the hotel. All the staff were helpful, friendly and attentive. My room was extremely clean and comfortable and I made plenty of use of my balcony. The location is central within Canberra South with plenty of amenities within a short walking distance. I will be recommending this hotel... More

Second visit to the East Hotel and just as impressive as the first time. This time we stayed in a 2 bedroom studio which in reality was two very large rooms inter-connected. Parking underneath was easy, check-in was painless, room was brilliant. Drinks in the bar on a friday night were a delight - buzzy atmosphere, good service, ice cold... More

Decided to do a short stay in Canberra for my sons 6th Birthday. * Room - 5th floor 2br apartment (one large apartment with an interconnecting studio). Very clean and well equiped. We were a little concerned with the Kingston Hotel across the road, but the room has double glazing so noise wasn't a problem in the end. Kitchen had... More

Fabulous mix of modern hotel and serviced appartments. Located close to Manuka shops (including Coles), Kingston shops and the Kingston Foreshore. All these are within comfortable walking distance. The free washing/ drying machine use (with detergent supplied) was appreciated. The kitchenettes are well stocked providing the option to cook most things. The bar & restaurant associated with the hotel have... More

I am a regular guest at East Hotel and I find the staff, facilities and rooms to be first class on each occasion. From the easy parking and check-in to the quality of the rooms and amenities, to the staff at Joe's Bar, everybody is working together to provide a great experience for their guests.
