QT Canberra
Don't get a twin room
Worst hotel I have stayed at in Canberra, especially given the price of over A$250 a night. Arrived with 3 colleagues, no concierge or anyone to help with the large amount of luggage from car. Requested a twin room, found it was located adjacent to the lift shafts. Although the closest lift ceases between 2130 and 0730, it only cuts the noise a little, with the remaining whooshing up and down all night long. Complained and was told ALL twin rooms are located adjacent to the lift shafts. Air conditioning outlet generated loud drone all night, even when switched off. Had two poor nights of sleep. No power sockets adjacent to bed. Hotel that focuses on being "hip and cool", with images of dictators used to decorate restaurant bar, but can't get the basics right. Free movies but limited TV channel selection. Wifi at 2Mb/sec.

Very noisy air conditioning in room, water pipes constantly noisy out of the unit even when air conditioning shut off

Great place to stay when visiting National Museum. Unfortunately air conditioning not working effectively, but everything else excellent standard.

Never again
Lack of communication between the staff, I got charge without notice plus my card it's from overseas so in order to approval every payment I must write my signature (the terminal ask for it always) Nobody told me anything until I did my check out and asked for my bill. I dont know how they ignored that plus, didn't receive my receipt until I asked for it. That really upset me.
