Hotel Realm is a new 5 star sprawling accommodation, spa and entertainment hub in the Canberra suburb of Barton just behind Parliament House.
Its cavernous entrance atrium certainly announces its cool, global vibe. And we receive a smooth, friendly and unobtrusive check-in. Full marks.
The atrium installation is several stories high…
We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment with a balcony overlooking a park and Parliament house in the distance. There are 186 rooms in total.
Really comfortable beds and linen – although we did find the room temperature difficult to stablise – either a little too hot or too cold!
These apartments are going to be a hit with Canberra’s itinerant public servants and long-stay guests – full size kitchen with all the gadgetry including sharp knives. There was also a washing machine and dryer.
… with a caprese salad. Excellently prepared with fresh ingredients. Highly recommend it.
