Best Hotels in Canberra
Canberra has been in the limelight for a long while. Not just for being the Political Capital-Territory of Australia, but for the cafes, the bars and the hip-hop restaurants. Here is a list of the best hotels in Canberra for you to stay at while you enjoy all the fun and luxuries Canberra has to offer!
1. Hotel Realm
This hotel is located at a barely fifteen-minute walk to the door of Parliament House. This hotel can be easily termed as ‘Classic, Comfortable and Formal Enough’ for almost all occasions, just like a wool suit! The rooms are large and airy, decorated tastefully in shades of beige and taupe – with deliciously fine sheets on the big, fine beds for you to jump on after an exhausting day. This hotel offers a warm spa bath if you get a suite, a penthouse or a two-bedroom residence, which is the exact amount of therapy you need to relax! The ambience is great here, along with Free Wi-Fi facility, Coffee Pods, and a lot of space for you to hang around in your free time!

3. Jamala Wildlife Lodge
This Hotel is located inside Canberra’s National Zoo and Aquarium. This is a perfect place for you to stay if your Instagram has been looking monotonous lately. This is not just a five-star hotel, but it is home to a pair of three-year-old Bengal tiger brothers. If you plan to stay here, you get all sorts of perks, including an afternoon tour of the zoo, and the chance to wander through an eerily lit aquarium. You can also hand-feed deer in the morning, while some hyenas are feeding on the side. The many accommodation options at Jamala include the UShaka Lodge, which is just the right choice for you if you want to go for a place that offers luxury-hotel ambience. The other accommodation choice, that looks fascinating enough is Giraffe Tree houses where you can feed giraffes standing right from your balcony!

4- QT Canberra
The thing that is mind-blowing about boutique hotel QT Canberra is its location. It is located on London Circuit, in the middle of ANU, the National Museum of Australia and Lonsdale Street strip. The main feature that stands out about this place is its unapologetic confidence and pride. This is the place where you’d find cocktail making its way to your room, a private rooftop members’ lounge, along with a bold and brash secret bar at the back of a barber shop. 205 suites are available, and while the vibe of this hotel may be political or ‘politique’ as QT terms itself, everything here is so much more than just monotonous politic. I say that with a wink, of course.
